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
Paper towels – Costco (or Target)
Sponges – Costco
Dishwasher tabs – Costco (or Amazon Subscribe & Save)
Rinse Aid – Amazon Subscribe & Save
Shampoo – Public Goods
Conditioner – Public Goods
Refillable bottles – Amazon
Extra bottle tops – Amazon (might need to trim tube length)
** A quick note about Public Goods: we recently signed up for HostGPO which uses collective buying power to get discounts from major brands like West Elm, Pottery Barn, Rugs USA and Williams Sonoma. At the time of writing this post, members receive 25% off of Public Goods wholesale bundles. If you’d like more info click here.
November 2023 UPDATE: Public Goods has raised their prices a bit, including shipping costs. 🙁
BUT we just found out that HostGPO is launching their own signature line of bagged shampoo, conditioner and body wash refills at $0.11 per ounce with FREE shipping. So refilling is still easy but pricing is lower than we’ve ever seen. Once our Public Goods supply is out, we’ll be switching over to the HostGPO signature line. If you’d like more info, click here.
Don’t forget to pay attention to expiration dates and consider your calendar/occupancy before buying in bulk.
