Short-term property rental is relatively variable as far as the amount of time that defines it. If you are planning to rent for a vacation, then more than likely you will enter a short-term rental. This could be as short as a weekend, or as long as a couple of months. This does not typically include hotel or motel stay, as you are renting only the room, not the property per se. However, there are hotels that offer extended stays. They require a more extensive contractual agreement than a typical hotel, and they could fall under the short-term property definition. A long-term rental is typically considered anything six months or longer.
