The Ultimate Airbnb Set-Up List

Following on from my previous post on Vacation Rental Business – 6 Tips For Success I had a new host ask me what my ultimate Airbnb set-up list was, and how they could access it. I only had a combination of private Amazon wish list, spreadsheet and notes list at the time, so I committed to making a true public list that I could share with other newby hosts.

This list contains 150+ items of everything you’ll need and more, to easily add to your Amazon shopping cart. It will literally save you HOURS of searching for products, and then forgetting things. (Like I did!)

This list covers everything from kitchen essentials to bathroom products, cleaning closet essentials, linens, toys, games, things for dogs and kids. And it’s all available from Amazon so it’s incredibly easy to add to your cart and wait for the delivery.

After setting up our first vacation rental on Airbnb and VRBO last year, we learned a lot about what we needed to buy, what we didn’t and how to streamline the process. One thing I learned was that buying everything from one store (ideally) makes life so much easier. Amazon is a great choice, as it’s easy to see what you ordered, the invoicing is great for accounting, and everything ships free (with Prime) in just a few days.

The list contains items that are aimed at a mid-market target audience, so contains good quality modern designs and products that will appeal to this market. I’ll be keeping the list evergreen as I find new items to add, and products i’ve tested and liked. So check back regularly and add what you like to your Amazon lists.

The 10 Best Outdoor Rugs on Amazon Under $100

One thing I think is a must to create a truly cozy outdoor living room, is a rug. Outdoor rugs bring the inside out better than anything else. They make the patio start to feel more like your cozy living room, and a space you want to relax. Plus they’re cheaper than you think! Here’s my round-up of the 10 best outdoor rugs on Amazon for under $100.

I think this is probably my favorite, the Fab Habitat Reversible Rug Miramar – Gray. It’s $94 for the 5′ x 8′. It’s made of 100% recycled plastic, it’s mold and mildew resistant, and UV resistant against fading.

Another rug from Fab Habitat the Cairo – Natural & Black is another great choice. With the same specification as the Miramar it’s available in 4′ x 6′ for only $54.

For a more traditional or French Country look, the Nicole Miller Ayana rug from Home Dynamix is a great choice. Available in grey / blue or grey / black the 5’2″ x 7’2″ is $68.

For a more classic or coastal look, the Safavieh Courtyard Collection rug is available in multiple different colors and sizes. I like this color combo in a classic navy / beige to add a touch of coastal sophistication to your yard. The 5′ 3″ x 7′ 7″ is a decent size for just $100.

For a more modern rug this New York rug by Beverly Rug in blue / white is a bargain at just $80 for a large 7’10” x 10′. I love the red stripes at the edge to make it stand out from the crowd and add more interest.

For a natural look that would look great with a tropical or Boho style patio, this weather resistant jute look rug is a great choice from nuLOOM. You can get the Lefebvre Braided rug in a 3′ x 5′ oval in natural tan for just $44. It’s also available in multiple size / shape combinations and color ways.

This brightly colored Boho style rug would look great paired with brightly colored pillows and furniture for a true Boho chic look. The Safavieh Courtyard Collection rug is pictured here in light grey / fuchsia, but is also available in 6 other color ways. At $92 for the 5’3″ x 7’7″ this rug is a great choice to brighten up your yard.

This bright aqua rug by Fab Habitat is another great option that will make your backyard pop. The Brooklyn rug in teal is $94 for the 5′ x 8′. It’s also available in blue and a five different sizes.

To add warmth and coziness this rug by Unique Loom in burgundy would be a great choice for a modern Southwestern style patio. Th is design is only available in 4′ x 6′ and one color way, but at only $33 it’s a bargain.

For a classic yet modern style, you can’t beat this black and white stripe rug by DII. The 4′ x 6′ is a reasonable $40, it’s also available in navy or grey. This is the rug that I purchased for our patio and can’t wait to see it! Stay tuned for the grand reveal.
