Companies such as AirBnB and Vrbo have allowed homeowners to open their abode to others while making a profit. If you’re new to the BnB scene, there are a few tricks to securing a quality rating from your visitors. BackpacksUSA is here with a checklist of BnB essentials to have for your guests.
Some BnB owners make the mistake of opting for the cheapest utilities for the homes they rent out. Now, you don’t have to equip your home with the latest and greatest smart technology, but you should have reliable utilities to ensure guest comfort.
Things such as Wi-Fi, heating, and AC should be well-functioning at your BnB. Be sure to provide guests with any usernames or passwords necessary to gain access.
Superhost Tip: Compile the details of your BnB into a booklet for guests. A little guide to Wi-Fi access, where to find toiletries, and your favorite nearby bars or restaurants shows guests you care about them being satisfied with their stay.
Most guests don’t expect their BnB’s bathrooms to be stocked quite like a hotel bathroom—making it a much-appreciated bonus when yours is! BackpacksUSA sells a variety of bulk hygiene kits at a considerably low rate, so you can supply your guests with a slew of toiletry needs. Our wholesale kits include a selection of the following.
- Disposable toothbrush
- Razors and shaving cream
- Soap or body gel
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Shower caps
- Pocket tissues
- Emery boards
- Antibiotic ointment
With your bathrooms equipped with a vast assortment of toiletries, you’re sure to please your guests.
Should an accident occur while visitors are staying, it’s essential to include safety items at your BnB. Keep you, your home, and your guests safe by keeping the following around:
- Fire extinguisher
- First-aid kit
- Local emergency numbers
- Carbon monoxide and smoke alarm
Superhost Tip: Similar to our earlier advice, you should clearly lay out pertinent safety information. Keep a list of safety details and plans in plain sight or make a copy for each room. Advise guests to take a photo of the informative sheet with their phone for safe-keeping.
