The Guide to Vacation Rental Stocking & Replenishment

When setting up your vacation rental there are many products you’ll need to consider stocking and replenishing. There are standard items within your kitchen and bathroom that should be provided to guests. These extend to toiletries, kitchen supplies, and cleaning items. Above and beyond these standard items are stocked items that will really stand out or even exceed your guests expectations!

This list encompasses all the standard, optional, and truly standout items hosts can stock their short term rentals with. To learn what amenities you should have to furnish your vacation rental, please check out our Short Term Rental Amenities Checklist.

Vacation Rental “Standard” Stock & Replenishment

Within the standard stock & replenishment list are items that are common to vacation rentals. These items will meet the expectations of the majority of Airbnb or VRBO guests. They include non-perishable items that will be regularly used and consumed.

Vacation Rental “Utility” Stock & Replenishment

The items on this list are required to provide but rarely need replacing, hence the separate category. Hosts should keep an eye on this stock and keep backups in case of an emergency.

Vacation Rental “Optional” Stock & Replenishment

Within the optional stock list are items that are less common to vacation rentals but provide a heightened level of service and value. These items are great to target your property to a specific type of guest. We suggest providing items that are either non-perishable or have long shelf lives.
