These Are the Most Popular Airbnb Listings in, Near Philadelphia


The most popular Airbnb rentals within a short drive of Philadelphia include an Instagram-able 'Pretty in Pink' house in the city, a distinct mid-century home with a wavy roof just across the Delaware River, and a Miami-esque villa in the Poconos, reports the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The uniqueness of some Airbnb properties make them highly coveted for a short-term stay and double as passive income for the owner.

In Philadelphia, the median monthly revenue for people who listed properties on Airbnb or Vrbo over the last 12 months was $2,094, according to AirDNA, which tracks data on short-term rentals. That includes a 96% increase from $1,283 in January to $2,516 in July. During the peak summer travel month, occupancy rates reached 68% in the city and average daily rates were $172.

For short-term vacation destinations a drive away from the city, the numbers were much higher.
