Mendocino cabin is California’s most “hospitable” Airbnb listing
The owners of a quaint, wooded studio with a cozy fireplace in the heart of the Mendocino Redwoods have been named California’s Best Airbnb Hosts.
The vacation rental company this week announced the most welcoming hosts in every state, and Glenn and Suzanne’s romantic getaway (surnames have not been shared) topped the list, with five-star reviews 100% every year since 2012.
The secluded location offers “stargazing and daytime relaxation on a cedar deck out front with two teak steamer chairs” and “a forest bath on our redwood trail,” which presumably translates to by a walk in the woods. The blurb also states that “the peaceful, zen and clean environment is organized for our guests and family, including a ‘shoe-free zone’ on the wooden studio floors.”
Describing the secret to their success, Suzanne says that she ironed all the sheets in their workshop with a rotating iron from Europe. “It’s very time consuming and laborious, but it’s one of those things that I think is very important,” she said. “Our customers deserve the best.”
Elsewhere, a private riverside cabin owned by Dean Martin’s granddaughter was at the top of Utah’s list. The log cabin near Park City is believed to be one of the last places the legendary singer visited later in life.
However, not all Airbnb listings can boast of such hospitality, and recent horror stories shared by guests who have made headlines include the discovery of a woman from Toronto that she shared an apartment with. a roommate who drinks a lot and coughs up phlegm and a client’s macabre discovery of “dark, thick curly hairs” all over the floor in a rental in Austin.
