BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – Airbnb has ranked an Altoona woman as the most hospitable host in Pennsylvania with her listing, “Private, clean and cozy.”
Sheri Caw has over 260 reviews at her guesthouse. The Airbnb report highlights the most hospitable Airbnb host from all 50 states. Hosts needed to achieve a 100% rate of five-star reviews in the following categories: cleanliness, check-in and communication.
There were seven hosts in Pennsylvania who achieved this standard, but Caw had the highest number of reviews, which is how she achieved the number one designation.
Caw and her husband decided to become Airbnb hosts after attending a wedding and staying in an Airbnb in 2017. They decided to convert their detached garage into a home-share. Caw attributes their high star rating to their attention to detail and previous travel experience.
“When you walk in here it feels cozy. You walk in sit down and feel like you’re at home. I wanted a place that people can come and just relax.”Sheri Caw
Caw provides her guests with robes, toiletries, and local farm eggs, and many other touches. She’s had guests from all over the state, nation and country stay in her rental property. Representatives with Airbnb say receiving this kind of designation is extremely rare.
“We have 5.6 million listings throughout the world, so this is really finite. The best of the best of the best.”Ben Breit, Public Affairs, Airbnb
