Short-stay is a stay of at least one week and less than 6 months, long-stay is a stay of 6 months or longer. Short-stay homes are fully furnished more often than long-stay homes. At long-stay apartments, you often see that rental prices are excluding gas, water and electricity and in short-stay rentals this is often included. Short-stay rates are often more attractive for the lessor as the agreements are of a temporary nature and therefore more flexible, so you can ask for a higher rental price. With long-stay, tenants almost always want to register at the address and in short-stay this is not always the case.
