The Town of Hilton Head received more short-term rental complaints in the second half of the year than it did the first.

In total, the town logged 335 short-term rental complaints by 153 complainants through its short-term rental nuisance management hot line and online complaint form, according to documentation obtained by an Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette Freedom of Information Act Request. In the first half of the year there were 123 complaints, and in June through November there were 212 complaints.

The complaint statuses are broken down into the following categories:

  • Closed — The issue was investigated, and the town may have issued a verbal or written warning and determined no further action was required.

  • No violation — No violation was found at the time of the investigation. The town may have issued a verbal warning or determined the issue wasn’t related to short-term rentals.

  • Violation — A violation may have been found, and the town may have issued a verbal or written warning.

  • Under review — The town may be working with the owner to resolve an issue, or it is still under investigation and may require additional follow-up.

  • Warning — A violation may have been found at the time of investigation, and the town may have educated the guests about the ordinance and warned them of the consequences of future issues.

  • Citation — Unresolved violations required further consequences and the case was referred to the Bluffton Magistrate Court.
