Stocking your vacation rental bathroom may seem like a no-brainer. However, your bathroom offers a big opportunity to impress your guests and drive glowing reviews. A deliberate, well-stocked bathroom can mean the difference between your guests reviewing your home as standard or a standout.
When managing your own vacation rental, set up your bathroom for success with the essentials that guests expect, plus some extras that leave them impressed. From the necessities to beyond-the-basics, here is a comprehensive vacation rental and Airbnb bathroom checklist.
Once seen as a hotel luxury, providing vacation rental toiletries shows you’re going above and beyond to make guests feel comfy and cared for. Plus, today’s travelers are concerned with hygiene. They don’t want to use the same liquids as the guest before them, so stick to travel-size or single-use items. Even if guests bring their own preferred toiletries, offering them in the first place shows you’re considering all the details of their stay.
Elevate the everyday and become your guests’ new travel standard. Providing little touches like these can make a stay feel effortless, stress-free, and spa-like. Don’t fret over which brands to use. Guests will likely be impressed by your intention to make their travels easier.
A phenomenal stay is all in the details. Sure, you may have a breathtaking ocean view. But if you’re leaving guests threadbare towels and a soiled shower curtain, the experience could feel downright dingy.
Vacasa vacation rental towel tip
Nothing conveys a luxurious bath experience quite like fluffy, white towels. No matter your decor, we suggest purchasing all white towels for your vacation rental. They match with any color, are simple to clean (just add bleach to the wash), and are easy to replace. Vacasa can stock your home with plush, hotel-quality towels (and bed sheets!) as part of our vacation rental Linen Program. Plus, we’ll launder them, change them out between guests, and replace when needed.

What’s on your walls and door is just as important as what’s in the shower. Consider what you’d expect in a hotel bathroom, such as:
Today’s guests are obsessed with staying clear of germs more than ever. While you may not be able to overhaul your entire bathroom with touchless controls and motion sensors, there are items to stock in your bathroom to keep your guests feeling safe:

Consider what you would find in a luxury hotel or a spa. The idea is to elevate your guests’ stay, while providing some of the essentials that people often forget to pack. This includes fluffy, white towels, memory foam floor mats, and hotel-style toiletries and personal care items such as body lotion, disposable razors, and cotton swabs and pads.
Today’s travelers expect vacation homes to cover the basics. Stock your vacation rental bathrooms with these essentials:
While we don’t use any specific brand for all of our toiletries, we do use the plant-based Mrs. Meyers Clean Day hand soap in our homes.
