Airbnb Super Hosts

On Friday we had an email that put us in top form ready for the weekend. It was from Airbnb to let us know that due to our hard work and looking after guests in the way we do, we had been given ‘Super Host’ status.

For those that don’t know what this is, ‘Super Host’ is recognition from Airbnb central that we’re doing an outstanding  job at hosting and going above and beyond the call of duty when needed.

We are leading the way in how this community can work for us all. We feel like the crème de la crème of Airbnb World, in the elite club. It is the highest ranking a host can get…….

and we’ve made it.

Here’s a snippet form airbnb website on the Super Host Program: “Behind every great Airbnb experience is a mighty fine host, so to recognize these outstanding members of the community we’ve formed the Super Host program!

SuperHosts could write the book on hospitality; they go the extra mile to fetch a guest from the airport and stock the fridge with your favorite yogurt. They’re welcoming faces that know the ins and outs of their city and provide local recommendations and insights that deepen the travel experience for every guest. People want to stay with them, hosts want to be them”

Well that’s both parents and airbnb telling us we could write a book on where we are!! Hmmm, could be on to something there!

So, from both of us we would like to say a huge thank you to all of our guests that have made airbnb such a great success for us and for choosing to stay with us. And of course a big shout to the guys at airbnb for the support and our brand new snazzy Super Host badge. We’re very proud and will now walk with a little swagger in our step.

For new readers, new hosts and those looking to make a success of airbnb hosting, please subscribe so we can keep you up to date with our hints and tips on how we achieved Airbnb Super host status.

Regards,

Phil and Fiona

    That’s awesome! Congrats. Do you know how you were selected? Is there a way that other hosts can submit for receiving the same recognition?

      Hi Jeffry,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Any host can apply to be a Supper Host as long as they have the following criteria:
      Positive reviews on your listing,
      Have been hosting on the site for over a year
      Above an 85% response rating
      Have a completed profile with a picture of your face
      Great pictures of your listing
      Have verified yourself

      Once you have applied it goes off to a team who either give you a shinny Super Host Badge, or email and say to try again in a few months.

      Here is a link to the application: http://www.airbnb.com/superhosts/apply

      If your applying keep us posted on how you get on.

      Thanks,

      Phil

    Reading your blog with interest, it’s very useful and written in such a friendly way.

    Airbnb has become a global phenomena and together with Alicja ( my other half ) we have a couple of listings in Warsaw Poland ( so if any of you happens to be passing ! )

    So we are picking up some useful tips ( and decent reviews ) and hope to join you as SuperHosts soon ( could be a little while though )

    Thanks and keep up the good work

      Your reviews are excellent so yes you are well on your way to Superhost status, it takes hardwork and determination to get there and you have all that:)

    As hosts ourselves in Bali, we’re duly impressed by how well developed you’ve made your business. Your website is incredibly impressive and we were thinking of reaching out and introducing ourselves.
