Roughly 40 percent of the guests and income came from Philadelphia, where hosts made $47.7 million while welcoming 404,000 guests.
There are now 14,200 Pennsylvanians who rent out their homes through Airbnb, which allows users to book short-term rentals online. The San Francisco-based company said hosts typically earn $5,200 annually.
Airbnb would not provide figures for 2017.
Montgomery County led the southeast suburbs with $2.3 million and 15,300 guests. Bucks County hosts made $1.9 million from 12,300 guests; Chester County hosts collected $1.6 million with 11,200 guests; Delaware County hosts earned $930,300 and had 7,800 guests.
