We knew it was coming, because our top-level rating had dropped below 80% for the first time ever! We’ve been Superhosts for nearly two years and considering the run-down block we live on, it’s just a testament to the love and care my wife puts into keeping everything sparkling clean and wonderful for our guests.
We saw the rating dip just below 80% about a week before Airbnb would perform their next Superhost review, so we knew this was coming. But suddenly we had such a sense of relief! No more will we have to be so impeccably clean and buttoned up out of fear of losing the status. We’ve already lost it. And now that we’ve lost it, we’re not even sure of its value. We’ve already gotten two new reservations for January – the slowest month of the year – and a third serious inquiry for January as well.
