… On Edgemont Drive in West Austin, you don’t have to look far to find push-back to Type 2 short term rentals. These are rentals that are not owner-occupied.

“That really operates more as a hotel,” Palmer Quaroni said, who lives right next to that “hotel.” A home being used as a Type 2 short-term rental. “I’ve called into code on this property,” Quaroni explained, “Noise complaints and over-occupancy.”

But if you ask Quaroni, the problem is bigger than just noise.

“This is a home that’s designed for investment…I don’t know how you regulate that other than moving them to commercial zones.”
