One of the vital roles you have as an Airbnb Host is to ensure your Guests have everything they could possibly need. This includes the basics as well as a few special touches to make your Guests feel more valued and right at home. Keeping your Guests happy means you have a better chance of getting a good rating, which will lead to having more clients, it’s simple math! The following are some of the things that all Airbnb Hosts should provide for their Guests:


Your Guests will need to shower and brush their teeth every day they are at your house. A good Host should provide some complementary soap and toothpaste, and if you want to go one step further maybe even disposable toothbrushes for each of your Guests. You can go the extra mile and provide other body care items like shampoo, conditioner or body lotion, but obviously that’s all optional.


You need to provide towels for each of your Guests. This includes bath towels (preferably 2 per Guest), hand towels, face towels, and beach towels if applicable. The towels should be clean and smell fresh for effect.

Bed Linens & Pillows

Your Guests need to sleep comfortably, especially after a long flight. They’ll want to get into a nice comfortable bed with clean bed linens. Make sure to have at minimum one pillow for each Guest.

Tea, Coffee & Sugar

Most people love a cup or two of tea or coffee to start their day off on the right foot. You should ensure that your Guests are able to make a cup of coffee or tea whenever they need one.


Your guests will probably prefer to have a home cooked meal at some point during their stay as opposed to going to restaurants. You should provide cooking pots, pans, and any other thing you know they’ll need to prepare a meal.

You should also provide plates, cups, spoons, wine glasses, trays, Tupperware, and other dinner table items.

First Aid Kit

You never know what will happen during the time your Guests are in your house. With children running around, or adults preparing food, there’s always a chance that something bad happens. As such, you should provide a first aid kit for emergency medical care before help arrives.

Garbage Disposal System

If you want to get a clean house back when your Guests leaves, you’d better have some garbage bins and trash bags placed strategically around the house. You should have one in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.

Clothing Iron

This is a very important appliance especially if your Guests are visiting for business reasons. When traveling your clothes will tend to get creased, so they’ll likely need to be ironed after being taken out of their suitcase. If your Guests need to look sharp, they’ll probably need to iron their clothes.

Stock your kitchen up with some of the commonly used spices like cumin, chili powder, garlic, thyme, oregano, ginger, cinnamon, and others. Your Guests will be appreciative of being able to make the food they’re used to preparing at home.


In the modern world, people stay connected to each other and the world through the internet. A good Wifi connection is essential to help Guests stay connected to their family and friends, while also providing an additional means of entertainment.

Final Thoughts

Taking the time to ensure that Guests are properly cared for is something that will effortlessly set a good Airbnb Host apart from a bad one.
