These are the 10 most popular Airbnb listings in Philadelphia and its surrounding vacation hotspots – The Business Journals


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.
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.
Median monthly revenue in Ocean City was some $10,000 in July, with a 12-month median of almost $5,600. Occupancy rates in the Jersey Shore beach town reached 100% over the summer and average daily rate was $456, according to AirDNA. Rehoboth and Dewey beaches in Delaware saw similarly high numbers.
In Mount Pocono, the median monthly revenue over the past year was $3,721 with an average daily rate of almost $400 during that time period.
As you might expect, some of the trends that Airbnb is noticing are people looking for access to beaches and a property with a pool. However, it’s also seeing small cabins and tiny homes rise in popularity.
