City regulations bar short-term rental owners from advertising a capacity that exceeds two people per bedroom, meaning this particular short-term rental could only advertise the rentals for four people. A spokesman for Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Craig Belden, said the owner of the property at 1265 Esplanade Ave. was sent a violation notice on Feb. 26 for exceeding capacity and for not displaying the correct permit license.
Belden said that if the property is not brought into compliance by March 13, the owner may face fines or revocation of the short-term rental license. The assessor shows the owner is Shaun and Barbara Scott, both of New Orleans. A message sent to the host of the property was returned without a comment on the listing and a statement that the host was traveling abroad with his family.
