There are millions of places to stay listed on Airbnb, ranging from cheap and cheerful to expensive and exquisite. The problem is you don’t always know what you’re going to get. Airbnb Plus is the company’s way of highlighting its absolute best properties.

These Really Are the Best Properties

Airbnb Plus offers a selection of homes that Airbnb has vetted for quality. Only the best properties are included, and even the hosts have to have proved themselves. In other words, according to Airbnb, these are the best properties it has to offer.

Airbnb claims, “Every Airbnb Plus home is one-of-a-kind, thoughtfully designed, and equipped with a standard set of amenities.” Each one is “visited in person to ensure comfort, consistency, and design,” and are “checked for 100+ things that guests told us they love.”

According to The New York Times, this IS going to have an impact on the price. The average nightly rate for a standard Airbnb property is $100. However, Airbnb Plus properties have an average nightly rate of $200. So this isn’t meant for people looking for a cheap getaway.

To find an Airbnb Plus property you just need to look for the Plus badge next to a listing. At launch, there are Airbnb Plus properties available in Austin, Barcelona, Cape Town, Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Melbourne, Milan, Rome, San Francisco, Shanghai, Sydney, and Toronto.

    Be careful with Airbnb. The owner can cancel at the last moment, leaving you with few options. When this happens., AirBnb is not very helpful. This just happened to me two weeks ago. I made a booking back in June for what seemed like a nice option in Hokkaido, Japan. Upon arrival in Japan, I received an email from Airbnb stating that my reservation had been canceled by the owner. Worse, they could not find any alternatives. I was left scrambling to find lodging for the week, and since it was peak holiday season, nothing was available for less than $400/ night. Airbnb did refund my original payment, but was utterly unhelpful otherwise, and my lodging cost $2,000 more than the original booking. I’m sure many people have had good luck with Airbnb, but this could happen to anyone.

    After approximately 30 visits to AirBnB properties in the US and Europe, I’m happy to report only positive experiences. That includes a recent refund when my wife’s sudden illness made a cancellation necessary.
