Vacation Rental Property Essentials

Vacation Rental Property Essentials (1)

Short-term rental investors have to provide certain essentials that long-term rental property owners do not typically provide (think towels). While we usually advise offering additional amenities to make your properties more appealing (the competition can be tough), we pulled a list of essentials for every rental property and a list of nice-to-have items.

Essentials for Every Vacation Rental Property

-Toilet Paper (at least 2 rolls per bathroom)

-Box of Kleenex (at least 1 box per bathroom)

-Bath Towels (at least 2 per guest)

-Washcloths (at least 4 per guest)

-Hand Towels (at least 2 per guest)

-Sheets for each bed (at least 2 sets)

-Kitchen towels (at least 2)

-Paper towels (at least 2 rolls)

-Liners for Trash Cans
