Airbnb released a new feature on their site that allows its customers to search and book verified “high-end” properties. No more Airbnb horror stories, customers will be guaranteed “beautiful homes, exceptional host, verified quality, verified style, verified easy check-in, verified for essentials, verified for fast wifi, and verified for fully equipped kitchens.” All these verified luxuries and amenities do not mean that the prices are skyrocketing. Customers will now have comfort in knowing what they’re in for when they are booking vacations.

Airbnb has also revamped their Airbnb Plus page in comparison to its regular search options. The pages for Airbnb Plus listings have high-quality images, a large icon for different amenities, and lets you “tour” the residence. The new addition to the site definitely feels like a shift toward modern and higher quality.

Airbnb is really stepping up their “home away from home” strategy and it looks phenomenal! You get the convenience7 and comfort of staying in your own home except your not. Also, if you’re an avid Airbnb-er keep your eye out on a new loyalty program that is currently in beta and will roll out by the end of the year.

But for now here are our favorite Airbnb Plus homes in each of their major marketed cities in the world:
