Vacation Rental Kitchen Essentials

A well-stocked kitchen can be essential to the success of a vacation rental. People often choose to rent vacation homes rather than stay in a hotel because it gives them access to a kitchen in which they can cook their own meals. A kitchen that is not properly equipped can be extremely frustrating for a renter and could be the difference between a guest booking your home again or not.

Below are some checklists of items that you may want to provide for your renters:


• If you have a porch, deck or patio where people might be lounging or eating outside, consider providing plastic cups and wine glasses for your guests. A plastic pitcher is also a good idea.
• Make sure your dinnerware is microwave safe.
• Provide two times the amount of glasses, plates, and flatware that your rental sleeps.

    It is always nice to have the idea of a home away from home especially the kitchen to have same ambiance with your real kitchen so that you’ll feel comfortable and will have the same result when it comes to cooking…
