Stocking Your Vacation Home Rental


cooking pot with spices, spoons and jar of noodles

I have developed a list of items that could be included in a short term rental focusing on items the guests will need. I have not included any large appliances under the assumption that those items will already be present. Do you need everything on this list? Probably not, but I've tried to make it as comprehensive as possible to give you many ideas.

You can obtain many items at yard sales or thrift stores, but make sure everything has a cohesive look so it does not give the impression that you just threw stuff in. Nice things lets your guests know that you actually care about them.
