If you have ever stayed at an Airbnb that is hosted by a Superhost, you definitely know what we mean when we say, those guys are the MVPs. We have stayed in a few and everything from the communication, arrival, the place, instructions have been perfect. So we thought, because we know you love to travel, let us introduce you to some Superhosts to book with next time you book an Airbnb.

Thomas, Kalk Bay, Cape Town

Thomas’s Starfish Cottage in Kalk Bay is the perfect place to just relax and enjoy ocean and mountain views. He runs the property with his partner Tegan. ‘After 6 years abroad and having acquired in-depth knowledge of customer service and hospitality we are more than able to offer you a seamless and comfortable experience in your ‘home away from home’ in our beautiful city of Cape Town, ‘ he says.

If you want a weekend or holiday retreat or getaway, this is the place to go. Trust us, we have tried it before and we have nothing but praise for this amazing place.


Kitty, Aptos, California

One of Airbnb’s longest-standing Superhosts, Kitty, also hosts one of the most booked homes on Airbnb — the Mushroom Dome. Guests often describe her home as a jewel. Rachel of Chico, California says, “she is a true professional and her years of hosting are apparent in her thoughtful touches and easy nature with guests.” Additionally, Kitty has been with the Superhost program since inception in 2014 and has an original Superhost cape to prove it.


Chris & Dane, Stellenbosch, South Africa

Both Superhosts and Plus hosts, Chris and Dane display incredible hospitality in their modern farmhouse. Each guest is greeted with fresh flowers on their working flower farm. Chris notes, “I have learned to maintain a high-level of service. A sense of belonging is created by personalized items that is honest in the way we live.”


Miko, Krakow, Poland

Meet Miko, a Superhost who has welcomed more than 42,000 guests in his apartments. “Home is not just a location, but rather a feeling which I’m trying to pass on to guests in the form of different experiences,” he says. Miko enjoys showing visitors hidden spots such as where to find his favorite pierogi (Polish dumpling).
