Superhost status on Airbnb is a recognition given to hosts who consistently meet certain criteria to a high standard, with Neil having achieved this status for eight consecutive years.

The importance of knowing the reason "why" you want to start an Airbnb business is emphasized, as it will drive behavior and lead to success.

Neil's Superhost Secret #1 is to understand your reason for starting an Airbnb business before building it, as the "why" will drive your behavior and ultimately lead to success.


"I went from being a complete newbie with Airbnb to turning over more than a quarter of a million pounds and actually I've managed to retire living off just my Airbnb income." 

"I suddenly saw that I had been sitting on somewhere to dig my well, my backup income, my own home."

"There's a success triangle at work here, which consists of your property, Airbnb, and you."

"Being a super host does not require talent. Applying my super host secrets will help you to get the most out of what Airbnb and your property can offer."

"In business, we tend to get by. We start and we give it a try. We know what to do and we know the how to, but success all stems from our why."



Neil has led a fulfilled and unconventional life, navigating an extraordinary journey from the Royal Navy to prop-making in London's West End theatres. Born into a military family, it was a twist of fate which led him to the theatre, where he contributed to iconic productions such as Phantom of the Opera. 

Eventually, Neil transitioned to Corporate Event Team Building, eventually founding his own venture in 1999. Financial challenges in 2017 are what prompted a strategic shift to Airbnb hosting, proving a reliable backup income.

Now, Neil has left the corporate world behind, thriving solely through his flourishing Airbnb endeavours.
