STVR - Short-Term Vacation Rentals

The City of Savannah defines short-term vacation rentals (STVR) as the rental of an entire dwelling unit for 30 days or less. STVRs are permitted in mixed-use zoning districts. Any property operating as a STVR must complete an application process and secure a STVR certificate to operate legally within the City. Please refer to the Zoning Bulletin to determine where STVRs are permitted.

The public can now search for short term vacation rental certificates through the City’s eTRAC system. Please use this site to find out the status of a certificate, expiration date, STVR Certificate #, and any other information you may need. Registration is not required to conduct general searches.
