The information in this article isn't exhaustive, but it should help you start your research on local laws. If you have questions, you can contact the City of Fountain Valley.

You may host for longer than 30 days in Fountain Valley, CA. To learn how to share your home for 30 or more consecutive days, see how you can set both the maximum and minimum number of nights a guest can book.
