Airbnb Plus represents the creme de la creme of all Airbnb listings. It’s a selection of the highest quality listings run by Airbnb’s finest hosts, known for attention to detail and great reviews. In today’s episode I talk with Blake Crothers, a super host from Melbourne.
Blake has been renting his apartment in Melbourne since 2017, and decided to apply for Airbnb Plus in April 2018. Six months later, he’s still working to get his listing approved.
We cover the following topics:
*What is Airbnb Plus?
*What are the benefits?
*What’s the application process like?
*How long does it take?
*How to pass the inspectio
*Most Airbnb Plusses have a theme, very strong design, high quality amenities
*Every home is visited in person for a 100+ point quality inspection to ensure the listing qualifies
*Airbnb Plus listings are show at the top of the search results
*According to Airbnb, plus listings get up to seven times more views
