We discuss the benefits of being a Superhost and debate how difficult it is to get and keep this status. One of the interesting things I just read in an article in the SH Insider was this:
“In fact, fewer than 100 people have maintained consecutive Superhost status since the program was introduced five years ago. That’s some 60 months of zero cancellations and five-star reviews.”
I swear at least a 100 people on this forum claim the same status. By my count I’ve hosted 59 months meeting SH standards. The first time I was awarded the badge was Sept 11, 2014. Wasn’t the program in place before that?
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to use one of my favourite words… bollocks! Of course, someone might prove me wrong but I’m pretty certain that there are at least 100 SHs in my immediate area. And I further imagine that many of those have had consecutive SH status.
I got it not long after you @KKC so not five years yet but as long as we don’t cancel, keep up our reviews and responses at a reasonable level, we’re not far away.
I know that one or two people have mentioned that they like the SH ‘hotline’ - the so-called special treatment we get when we call Airbnb. In all the time I’ve been a SH, I’ve used it exactly twice. No big benefit for me
I have —this is my 5th year. I think it would be nice if the superhost status recognized milestones like: 1 yr, 3 yr, 5. Yr, & each year beyond on the badge. Even if guests wouldn’t understand it, hosts would & it would give me a “feel good”.
