Conceptualizing the Impacts of Short-Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) Across the Urban Landscape

Abstract
Conceptualizing the Impacts of Short-Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) Across the Urban Landscape Despite the growing importance of urban centers and their ability to provide the scale, proximity, amenities, and specializations to incubate disruptive innovations such as short-term vacation rentals (STVRs), little tourism research has conceptualized the potential positive and negative impacts STVRs have across the urban landscape. With this gap in mind, this paper conceptualizes and unpacks the potential impacts of STVRs using an interdisciplinary framework that pulls from geographical perspectives on place-making within the tourism-residential landscape and a systems perspective which views destination development as a cycle with an apogee at which STVRs might most affect the trajectory of urban development. These perspectives are joined with a discussion of community resiliency to discuss the positive and negative implications for urban landscapes which are increasingly in the crosshairs of this type of entrepreneurial disruption.
