Our Essential STR Supplies List

By Kylee Niederhauser

Does stocking your short-term rental with guest supplies seem like a mystery to you?

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all of the different options and price points and aren’t sure what to provide for a 5-star guest experience that doesn’t totally break the bank?

And what about coffee? How could you possibly please everyone’s tastes and preferences?

(short answer: you can’t)

Stress no more, friend. You’re in good hands.

Below you’ll find the exact list that we use when stocking our properties.

We’ve linked all of the products that we’ve tried and tested ourselves from various vendors but feel free to shop around for the best prices in your region. #inflationproblems
