Top Performing Metrics for Vacation Rental Properties

Do you want to book a vacation or staycation but need help deciding which rental properties to book? Securing a getaway is now easier than ever, with several rental property platforms. Top-performing metrics are used to measure the performance of a property renter by the quality of hospitality, booking history, and overall customer satisfaction. Each platform has its version of top-performing metrics, and if met, they receive host badges or high star ratings. For example, rental properties with top-performing metrics on Airbnb are Superhosts and VRBO, recognized as Premier Hosts.

Learn what the badges mean and what to look for when choosing your next vacation home.

Airbnb recognizes Airbnb Superhosts for their outstanding hospitality, consistent booking history, and high customer satisfaction ratings. Superhosts must meet several requirements, including:

  • Maintaining a 4.8 overall rating
  • Having a 90% response rate
  • Canceling fewer than 1% of bookings
  • Hosting at least 10 guests or 100 nights in the past year

VRBO Premier Host is a high-performing host on their platform. VRBO recognizes its excellent hospitality, new and returning booking history, and high customer experience ratings. Premier Hosts must also meet a number of requirements, including:

  • Maintaining a 4.3 overall rating
  • Having a 90% response rate
  • Canceling fewer than 1% of bookings
  • Hosting at least 5 guests or 60 booked nights in the past year

A Google rating is a rating that is given to businesses by Google users. The rating is based on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest. Google users can give a business a 5-star rating if they are happy with its products or services.

To receive a Google 5-star rating, businesses need to provide excellent customer service and meet the expectations of their customers.

Before booking a rental property for your next vacation, we encourage you to do your homework and review the ratings on the abovementioned platforms. Guests often leave feedback about the properties that can help determine which option suits you and your needs.
