Airbnb Guest Favorite vs Superhost

Welcome to the World of Enhanced Airbnb Hosting!

Hey everyone! As your go-to expert in Airbnb hosting, I’m thrilled to bring you the latest insights into one of Airbnb’s most exciting features: the Guest Favorite Badge. This new addition could be a game-changer for your listing. Let’s dive deep into what it is, how to attain it, and the impact it can have on your Airbnb success.

Airbnb’s 2023 Revolution: The Guest Favorites Feature

Airbnb’s Winter 2023 updates have introduced something special – the Guest Favorites feature. This innovation is all about spotlighting the very best properties on Airbnb. With over 2 million listings already sporting this shiny new badge, it’s clear that this feature is making waves in how properties stand out in search results.

Wondering how to make your listing one of these coveted favorites? Keep reading!

The Secret Sauce: Criteria for the Guest Favorite Badge

To earn this prestigious badge, your property must tick several boxes:

  1. Achieve Stellar Ratings: Maintain an average rating of above 4.9 stars.
  2. Exceed Guest Expectations: Ensure easy check-in, spotlessness, an accurate description, great communication, an awesome location, and value for money.
  3. Consistency is Key: Keep cancellation rates below 1% and avoid quality-related complaints.

These criteria might sound familiar as they align closely with what it takes to achieve Superhost status. However, there are two crucial differences.

Understanding the Differences: Daily Evaluation and Listing-Specific Recognition

  1. Daily Evaluation with AI: Unlike Superhost status, which is reviewed quarterly, the Guest Favorite badge is evaluated daily using AI and machine learning. This means your listing can gain or lose this badge any day, depending on your performance.

  2. Listing vs. Host Recognition: Superhost status is linked to you, the host. If one of your properties underperforms, it could affect all your listings. However, the Guest Favorite badge is awarded individually to listings. This means each property stands on its own merits, unaffected by the performance of your other listings.

Increasing Visibility and Bookings

The Guest Favorite badge isn’t just a badge of honor; it’s a powerful tool for increasing visibility. With Airbnb now allowing users to filter for ‘Guest Favorite’ listings, earning this badge can significantly boost your bookings.

Tips to Elevate Your Listing

  1. Ace Guest Reviews: Focus on providing an outstanding stay to garner excellent reviews.
  2. Smart Communication: Use tools like Hospitable for automating guest interactions while maintaining a personal touch.

Your Opportunity to Shine

The Guest Favorite Badge offers a unique opportunity to highlight your listing and attract more guests. Remember, success in Airbnb hosting is all about offering an exceptional experience and showing your guests the care they deserve.
