Monterey County Vacation Rental Alliance

Supporting Visitors, the Economy & our Neighborhoods

The Web MCVRA

Life is best lived through joyful experiences shared with others

We believe in providing our visitors with joy, security, and an overwhelming sense of belonging in the personal comfort of our homes and our neighborhoods.

We establish sustainable practices that support the character of our communities. Our homes are managed, maintained and appropriately used in a manner that adds to the value, charm, and safety of our beautiful Monterey County.

We invite visitors to experience life as a local; we share our homes with people from all over the world who want to experience the heritage, beauty, and vibrant lifestyle of Monterey County from the comfort of a home.

Our Shared Experience

Monterey Bay is such a beautiful location which should be shared with the world in a reasonable manner. Staying at a house is a completely different experience than at a hotel room, which lacks the charm and character of a house. We also like interacting with the locals who can share so much more about the area.

John from California

We stayed in Monterey in a beautiful private home with our grandparents visiting from Europe. This is a much more beautiful and practical experience than staying at a hotel for a family vacation! And I am sure we were very respectful of neighbors.

Janica from California

As a native Californian I love to be able to take my entire family (four generations) on vacations where we can all be under the same roof and be comfortable. The Monterey area, is so rich in history and offers some of the best scenic views in the world. Feeling like you are part of the community really adds value to our vacations as opposed to staying in a hotel.

Non-Hosted STRs May Reopen. Hosted STRs May Not Reopen

On January 25, 2021, the Regional Stay at Home Order ended as a result of improvement of ICU projections throughout California. See: https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/Home/Components/News/News/7931/4251


This action allows Monterey County to return to the rules and framework of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and color-coded tiers that indicate which activities and businesses are open based on local case rates and test positivity. Most counties including Monterey are in the most strict or purple tier. Tier updates are provided weekly on Tuesdays. Individual counties could choose to impose stricter rules.


The Blueprint for a Safer Economy provides guidance for Hotels and Lodging which includes Additional Considerations for Short-Term Rental Units with the following restriction:

     • Only rent unoccupied (non-hosted) units. Do not rent rooms or spaces within an occupied residence.


Let’s all do our part to fight this pandemic,

Our Organization

The Monterey County Vacation Rental Alliance (MCVRA) is a coalition of homeowners and property managers dedicated to offering this experience to visitors. MCVRA represents, supports, and protects residential vacation rentals by working with elected officials, government staff, and the media. It monitors legislation that could impact vacation rentals. Proposed laws and regulations are reviewed and a position is presented to government officials to get a win-win-win result – a win for the local economy, a win for neighborhoods, and a win for homeowners.
