Are you ready for an Airbnb adventure, but unsure how to leave a lasting impression on your hosts? Well, fret no more, my fashion-forward friends! I have delved deep into the minds of Airbnb superhosts to uncover the secrets of becoming a five-star guest. So, slip into your most stylish pajamas and prepare for some humorous, lovely, and downright fabulous advice!

Respect the Property: Treat it Like the Runway

First things first, darlings. To earn those coveted five-star reviews, you must respect the property as if it were your own personal fashion sanctuary. Picture yourself strutting down a pristine runway, leaving nothing but glamour in your wake. Follow the house rules with gusto! Clean up after yourself, wash those dishes until they sparkle (because cleanliness is always en vogue), and ensure the floors are free of crumbs and dirt. Oh, and never forget to reset the thermostat to the requested temperature. Failure to do so might result in a minor faux pas.

Now, let me break it down for you fashion fanatics: – Leaving a few dishes unwashed? That’s a three-star blunder, my dear. – Creating a mess fit for a fashion disaster? Oh, honey, that’s a mere two stars. – And, heaven forbid, if you dare to trash the place, well, that’s a one-star catastrophe!

But wait, there’s more! Respecting the property goes beyond cleanliness. It means following safety guidelines as well. Think of it as accessorizing your stay with responsible behavior. If you’re in a rural getaway surrounded by forest and wildlife, like our fabulous host Rachel Boice, dear, don’t go setting the forest on fire with your cigarette. And for those not-so-outdoorsy guests, keep an eye on your surroundings when hiking. Safety never goes out of style, honey.

Remember, lovelies, treating the property like your own is paramount. If you break something or accidentally turn it into a fashion victim, be upfront with your host. Darling, honesty is always the best accessory. Just like Rachel’s guest who accidentally shattered a chair, let your host know. They’re there to help you maintain that impeccable sense of style throughout your stay. After all, once you leave, the next fabulous guest is eagerly waiting to sashay into your glam-filled footsteps.

Open Communication: Strut Your Stuff

It’s time to don your communication cape, my chic comrades! According to our superhosts, Jamie and Rachel, open communication is key to maintaining those five-star ratings. Now, don’t be shy, lovelies! If something doesn’t go as planned, it’s important to speak up. Think of it as confidently strutting down the runway, showcasing your stellar communication skills.

Along with taking care of the space, Rachel advises guests to be transparent about any mishaps or requests that may veer off the house rules. And here’s a little secret: hosts might even be open to bending the rules for a glamorous brunch gathering with your fabulous friends. Imagine being able to throw a soirée and still win the host’s heart! Just make sure not to turn it into an all-night extravaganza that leaves your host cleaning up your shenanigans like Cinderella after midnight. Nobody likes a rager-induced fashion fiasco.

Here’s another tip for you stylish communicators: Airbnb’s website has some stellar advice too, accessible with just a click of your well-manicured finger. Treat the property like it’s your own walk-in closet and follow those house rules, my dears. Airbnb even provides specific information about the consequences of disregarding these rules. Let’s just say, repeated or severe violations could result in being suspended or removed from the Airbnb community. And trust me, you don’t want to be banned from this fabulous fashion haven!
