BEST OF THE BEST: Top 13 South Burnett Airbnbs
THERE are more than 65 Airbnb stays available in our South Burnett community, and we have gone through and narrowed down the top 13 so you don't have to.
We have based our top 13 on whether the stays have Superhosts, how many reviews they have and their rating out of five stars.
According to Airbnb: "Superhosts are highly rated and committed to providing great stays for guests.
"To become a Superhost, you need to have an account in good standing and meet the following requirements. Your performance is measured over your previous 12 months of hosting. However, you do not need to have hosted for the full 12 months to qualify."
Superhosts need to have:
"Completed at least 10 trips OR completed three reservations that total at least 100 nights, maintained a 90 per cent response rate or higher, maintained a 1 per cent per cent cancellation rate (one cancellation per 100 reservations) or lower, with exceptions made for those that fall under our extenuating circumstances policy, and maintained a 4.8 overall rating (this rating looks at the past 365 days of reviews, based on the date the guest left a review, not the date the guest checked out)."
Superhosts do not apply to be recognised for the Superhosting abilities, but rather Airbnb appoints them the title based on the stats mentioned above.
Our top 13 Airbnb stays have Superhosts and have a rating of at least 4.9 out of five stars.
We have ordered them based on their star ratings, however this doesn't mean they are the best. Some have more reviews than others, which should also be taken into consideration.
