A short-term rental, or a short-term vacation rental (STR), is defined as a rental of a residential dwelling or unit for periods of less than 30 consecutive days.
The City of Osage Beach does NOT have specific regulations that restrict or prohibit short-term rentals within our residential zones or in commercial zones where residential condominiums are a permitted use; except for the R-3 multi-family zones, which do have a requirement of a 30-day minimum stay.
A City of Osage Business License or Occupational License is NOT required. Renting residential property in and of itself does not meet the City’s definition of engaging in business. However, property management of other similar activity may meet said definition to require a license. Contact the City Clerk’s Office for more information.
