Airbnb names most hospitable host in Alabama

Airbnb has announced Rachel from Fairhope as their number one most hospitable host in all of Alabama. Rachel hosts three listings on Airbnb: “Silver Sail Airstream,” “Glamping Silver Bullet” and “Sanitized Fairfield Farm Cottage.”

Airbnb highlighted the number one most hospitable hosts in all 50 states in a recently publicized report.

The criteria for such a high honor are as follows:

Each host must have received a 5-star rating in 100% of their reviews in the categories of Cleanliness, Check-in and Communication.

Each host must have had a minimum of 100 reviews.
If more than one host in each state fit the above criteria, the tiebreaker went to whomever had the most reviews.

Rachel from Fairhope received over 300 reviews, each one with a 5-star rating in hospitality and safety, the most critical of categories. Many other Alabama hosts achieved this feat as well, but Rachel had the most reviews.

Based on her own travels, Rachel said she and her husband believe the key to good hospitality lies in the details. Guests can expect to find thoughtful touches when visiting their properties, such as small toiletry items in the bathrooms or light meals and late-night snacks. The homemade blueberry muffins with blueberries from a local farm that Rachel leaves for her guests have become quite the hit among travelers.

“It has been incredibly fun and exciting to meet and host so many amazing people on our farm and so far we have loved every single one of them,” said Rachel.
