We specialize in selling to guests who don’t use mainstream platforms to book homestays. Our guests are more affluent and mature, with an average age of 55. This results in higher value bookings with a greater length of stay.

Who can be a Plum Guide host?

Every home on Plum Guide has been tested by a home critic against 150 different criteria. If your home passes you could become a host on Plum Guide.

What is the Plum Test?

The Plum Test has been formulated by a team of hospitality experts. Our Home Critics test your home against 150 different criteria and gather more than 500 data points. This gives our guest confidence they will have an exceptional experience.
