My fiancé and I plan to list our guest bedroom on AirBnb. Because we’ll be staying in the condo with our guest, we need a bed and breakfast license (and not a vacation license) from the city. We’ve got a bunch of questions about this license–like whether we have to get training in food safety if we’re not serving breakfast, whether AirBnb’s general commercial liability insurance is acceptable, whether we have sufficient smoke detectors, etc.–but the city says we need to personally visit City Hall for a business consultation to get them answered! Gah. We’re trying to do the right thing here.
I’m posting to see if anyone has experience with this license. We won’t feel comfortable renting without it, partly because we have an HOA to convince too.
