Monterey County Vacation Rental Alliance

Supporting Visitors, the Economy & our Neighborhoods

Use this page to join MCVRA, to renew your membership, and to contribute financially.

We work hard to protect your vacation rental business from overly restrictive government regulations. It is time to get involved. Join MCVRA. You will receive notices about regulations and updates on our progress.


  • Are you uncertain as to what jurisdiction and regulations affect your home?  Contact us.
  • If you have not been paying transient occupancy tax (TOT), we will advise you.
  • If you have been selected for audit by the County, we can guide you through the process.
  • Is your property located in the inland region of the County but you do not have a permit? We will advise you.
  • Accidentally double booked or have an emergency at your home? We will help you find a comparable place for your guests.


We need your financial help to succeed. Your dues cover expenses including legal advice, political advice, lobbying, public relations campaigns, this website, industry trade association memberships, phone service, printed materials, etc., all critical to our ability to influence government decision makers.   Your all-volunteer MCVRA Board of Directors receives not a penny. With just a single booking, you will recover the cost. Consider your financial loss if overly restrictive regulations were passed.
