I am really new to hosting on airbnb. We have a whole house listed in the Coolum ( qld, australia)
For interest I logged in on my husband's airbnb account and searched for accomodation for a few nights in that area - NOv 20 nov 23- I wanted to see how our listing looked and also how our prices compared with others. I selected that I wanted an entire home for 8 guests.
I got 18 hits, none of which was our listing. All of the 18 listings were for houses ( not apartments)
When I went into further filters and selected "house", the listings increased to 24 - one of which was mine - right near the top of the list.
Am I being dim? I can't see why selecting house ( when I have already said I want an entire home) gets me MORE hits. I also do't understand why not drilling further into the filters and selecting house means my listing doesn't show?
I am confused and a bit concerend. Is there something I shoudl be adding/editing on my listing?
I have just tried another search ( again through my husband's account) for different dates, and this time I am told "there are only 18 homes left for these dates" My listing is not amongst them. If I go to more filters adn click "pet friendly" the amount of listings INcreases to 25 - all still in the same suburb, all houses not apartments. surely this can't be right?? Adding extra filters normally decreases the amount of listings in an area ( or the search area widens??).
Not at all convinced my listing is showing up as readily as it should
