The April evaluations have just passed. What has been your longest run of quarters (evaluations) with keeping your Superhost status? I'm sure there are a few hosts here that have crested the 20 straight quarters mark. Our goal right now is 25 quarters so roughly another 3 years of work to hit that goal. We reached 14 quarters with this past evaluation so fingers crossed for the additional 11.
Well I have just notched up my 14th.........
You sort of take them for granted after a while but, they do mean something to me.
I have just had a farewell evening for the guests who have been here for the last 8 nights....a couple of professors from Helsinki.
There were tears all round as we gave each other a hug. They will be gone early in the morning and I am sad that they are going. Chris and I have downed a few hundred dollars worth of good wine and Ade and Laura got on so well....it's like we have had friends all our lives here for the past 8 nights.
I am sure my Superhost status will not be at risk because of this stay.
I have Airbnb to thank for yet another great experience and I can't wait for Laura and Chris to return!
It's not me, it's the guests I get.
Being here on the CC daily makes you 'jumpy' because of all the negative issues we read.
But at night time I get to spend time with my guests. I am a host who hosts....and I can't tell you how many nights have been spent amongst my wine with great company and a bit of music.
I feel just the luckiest guy that this is happening to.
We had a guest by the name of Joy here last week. She is a music teacher in the South Australian country city of Whyalla. She brought her guitar with her, sang and played the most beautiful somber song (written by her sister) I have ever heard. It was such an honour just to sit and listen to her with her beautiful voice and guitar mastery. She is coming back again and I can't wait. I am practicing songs I can play with her next time.........how bloody good does life get!
Barry....or Lera, I really think we get out of hosting what we are prepared to put into it, maybe I just have a lucky run but I don't think so. I think my reviews tell prospective guests what they are in for and I think they make the effort to make it work as well.
