Any areas in Columbus, Ohio that do not allow Airbnb?

3 Replies

I know that Columbus just released some restrictions and regulations on short term rentals starting next year, but are there areas of town that have still banned them? I had heard Westerville and Worthington had some gray areas in regards to short term rentals.

Any experience?

Thanks Sean! 

Yes, the City of Columbus has made new rules that have jurisdiction over all addresses that are in Columbus. Other smaller municipalities have some older rules that seem to ban Short Term Rentals, but most have not moved to enforce those laws that I have seen. I have heard that Bexley, Upper Arlington, and Worthington all have some rules against it. I also know hosts that are hosting there. 

I think I’m general If you are responsible about hosting on Airbnb, and you don’t piss off your neighbors, then you should have a pretty smooth ride. If you allow parties, and don’t control your guests, then the neighbors will file complaints, and those municipalities will start shutting you down. 

Do you host short term rentals now? We host lots of houses around the city, and would be happy to help.
