Superhost status – This is the icing on the cake of Airbnb hosting pinned only to the most deserving of hosts. Once this achievement has been awarded, you are awarded a badge and enhanced Airbnb listings.
To be awarded a ‘Superhost’ status, these 4 criteria mist be met…..
1: Host at Least 10 Guests Each Year
These must be booked through Airbnb to count. What helps the bookings is excellent reviews and great photography, clean properties and great pricing.
2: Respond to Guests Quickly
The best way to remember this rule is:
Treat your guests the way you would a fire alarm – respond immediately. Once a year, Airbnb pulls out its calculator and works out the average amount of time it takes you to respond to each new message. To pass the test, you need a response rate of at least 90%.
3: Receive 5-Star Reviews, at Least 80% of the Time
A great deal of effort is required to provide our customers with a 5-tar review and I’m please to say that we have many.
4: Don’t Cancel
Our guests have planned their visit to our location and as soon as they receive confirmation of their stay from StayZo, you owe them a responsibility to provide them with your 5-star accommodation – so cancellation is a no-no.
5: Maintain at Least a 4.8 Rating
Once you achieve your superhost status, then it is just as much effort to maintain your accreditation. If your rating drops below 4.8, you’ll lose your recognition and have to start all over again to retrieve it.
Below are Stayzo’s statistics and achievements.
The best bit of news is that the level of service that is required to maintain these statistics doesn’t only to apply to my guests that opt to stay in a StayZo property through Airbnb – but for every guest that stays with us. The main advantage of booking directly enables direct access to me without going through a third party portal and your requirements, such as an earlier check in (if available), airport pickups, drop offs or any other special requests can be discussed directly
