After years of hosting, we have come up with our list of the extra Airbnb amenities that will wow your guests! See below for our comprehensive list of Airbnb extras:
What are Some Extra Airbnb Amenities to Impress Your Guests?
Provide amenities such as his and hers bedroom reading lights, a personalized welcome gift, fresh flowers, seasonal decorations, a chalkboard with host’s favorite places, USB ports in outlets and end tables, outdoor grill, hot tub, sauna, paper coffee cups, and an Amazon Echo or Google Home device.
His/ Hers Reading Lights:
Offering guests his and her bedroom reading lights is sure to impress guests. These can be easily mounted to the wall or headboard, and provide that little extra bit of luxury when bedtime is near.
Acegoo makes a wall-mount reading light that I have mounted beside my bed. I have concealed the cord behind the headboard to give a more custom look. I wouldn’t recommend the clip style, as it is not as custom.
- MINIMALIST & SPACE-FRIENDLY - Very unobtrusive LED lamp doesn't take up any room over the bed and its streamline shape leaves plenty space for reading or working
- DIMMABLE & EASY OPERATION - Adopt most reliable mechanical press switch, short press to turn light on/off, press and hold switch to adjust brightness from dim to high bright
- DOESN’T DISTURB PARTNER - Soft warm hue narrow beam directly concentrates on book pages without lighting up the whole bedroom and doesn't disturb the sleepy partner
Nothing says vacation like a campfire. You could offer your guests a quality fire pit like this one, a bundle of firewood, all of the makings for a fire, and a little chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers to make s’ mores. Oh and don’t forget some comfy chairs!
- LARGEST SOLO STOVE: Coming in at 27 inches, the Yukon out measures all other Solo Stove fire pits, creating the hottest and most effective fire to make time with your friends and family richer.
- SECONDARY COMBUSTION: The camping stove has double wall design maximizes airflow and burning process. Bottom vent holes allow oxygen to the feed the fire from below while simultaneously channeling warm oxygen up between the walls of the stove and back into the fire.
Waterproof string lights in the backyard is a great way to set a festive mood for your guests. I have my lights set to an automatic timer that turns them on for several hours each night, going off before 10 pm.
They also brighten up a dark winter night and look inviting to guests showing up to the house for the first time.
Guests love to get out of their car and explore your neighborhood on foot….and by bicycle if you have some available. They don’t have to be expensive, but just in good working order. You will want to make sure they have the necessary lights for evening use, a pump, and locks.
- 48 MILES RANGE & 20MPH TOP SPEED –Mars are equipped with modular 48V 12.5Ah batteries & 500w Brushless Geared Motor to ensure a long-life span and excellent performance.
- 4" FAT TIRES – With 4 inch wide puncture resistant fat tires and dual suspension. The places that Heybike Mars can take you are almost limitless: downtown around, rocky roads, sandy beaches, snowy suburbs, and even urban jungles.
If your vacation rental is on a lake, providing a canoe for guests to use is a no-brainer. Of course, you’ll want to provide all of the necessities including oars/ paddles, whistles, and life vests. Make sure you have vacation rental insurance in place that cover these type of off-premise guest activities.

If your property is on or near the beach, you may want to provide dedicated beach towels. Otherwise, they will use your Airbnb bath towels, and sand will become a larger problem during clean-up and laundry time.

This is one item that seems to be forgotten more than others when traveling. During the summer months, or at beach destinations, it may be nice to offer guests some sunscreen. Of course, individual travel-sized sunscreens are the best choice. Larger bottles are OK, but guests will feel better having their own bottle.

Wood Burning Hot Tub or Standard Hot Tub
There are many hot tub options available, including in-ground custom projects, above-ground jacuzzis, and wood-burning hot tubs. A wood-burning hot tub may be a great option for a mountain cabin where wood is already being used on the premises. Wood-burning hot tubs are comprised of wood slab side walls held together by post-tensioned cables. The kit is installed on-site by the buyer, and typically includes seats, steps.

What better way to help your guests relax at your place than with a sauna. There are many sauna kits online that can be delivered right to your front door, un-assembled of course.
If you have some extra space, this could be a great option for a spare bedroom or even in your garage (if done correctly).
- RELAX IN STYLE – This gorgeous sauna is constructed with high-quality, solid wood Canadian hemlock. Its scratch-resistant, tempered glass door reveals a beautiful interior featuring three comfortable, wooden backrests.
- THE ULTIMATE ESCAPE – Enjoy steady, comforting heat from seven carbon heaters. The integrated, chromotherapy system is easily altered to suit your mood. And you can breathe easy thanks to the included air purifier.

Fresh Flowers (Or Quality Silk Flowers)
Fresh flowers can add an extra level of luxury to an Airbnb stay. If you need some decor with more longevity, you may consider some quality silk flowers like these. TJ Maxx has some fairly decent-looking silk flower arrangements.
- Quantity: Package includes 28 Pcs Multicolor Tulips Artificial Flowers Faux Tulip Stems Real Feel PU Tulips. These are individual stems, easy to arrange. You can use them alone in single stem flowers or in combinations.

- Color: These fake tulips come in a multicolor combination of white, pink, yellow, orange, red, rose red and purple. These are an excellent option when you need a burst of color, as they can match your different decorating projects.
These days, guests expect to have exceptionally fast WiFi to run all of their programs, apps, and games. Call your internet provider and see how much it would cost to bump up to the next data range. Your guests will appreciate it.
Also, go over to speedtest.net and have your WiFi speed tested. If it’s fast, take a snapshot of your speed, and post it as a photo in your listing as a selling point to potential guests.
I nice touch that I put in my Airbnbs is bottled waters. I put one bottle per guest in the refrigerator (centered in the refrigerator), so they are nice and cold, especially during the warm summer months. Bottled water cost is so minimal, and allows guests to refresh after a long journey or they can take them when they venture out into the city.
- NATURALLY REFRESHING: Our pure bottled natural spring mineral water is always a refreshing, naturally hydrating drink. Its quality and taste make it perfect for serving by the glass, or drinking directly from the bottle at home, at school or at the gym.
- NATURAL HYDRATION: evian's bottled water starts off nestled in the French Alps before delivering natural hydration and naturally occurring electrolytes. It's a great way to rehydrate post-workout, or as a refreshing drink on your lunch break or commute.
Providing bathrobes may be a nice touch for your bathroom. This is definitely above and beyond what a guest would be expecting. You might consider monogramming the robes with the name of your Airbnb to give an extra special touch.
- HOODED FLEECE BATHROBE - Super soft, plush, hooded fleece bathrobe made from coral fleece that offers great comfort whenever in use; perfect for lounging, relaxation and a great choice to wear after a tiring day at work.
- SOFT AND FLUFFY - The bathrobe is soft and fluffy, which can be worn all day long; the bathrobe carries a classic design with a hood to give a trendy look to it.
- ADJUSTABLE WAIST BELT - Each bathrobe features an adjustable waist belt that assists in securely closing the robe from the front so that you can wear it with confidence.
Tooth Brush and Tooth Paste
I don’t think hosts typically provide this amenity, as most guests tend to bring at least a toothbrush with them when they travel. But in the event of someone loses their luggage or another mishap, it might be nice to have a couple of spare toothbrushes and some travel-sized toothpaste available for guests to use.
- The ultimate dental Travel Kit: Soft Tooth Brush, with cover and crest toothpaste
- Imported from usa
- Dr; Fresh & Crest
- Dr; Fresh & Crest
Ironing Board and Iron
This could be considered an extra amenity although this is a fairly standard item in most vacation rentals. An ironing board and iron are one of the most requested items from guests. This is probably why almost every hotel offers these in their rooms.
1 used from $7.99
- EUROPEAN MADE QUALITY: The Bartnelli Ironing Cover and Pad Is Designed and Made in Netherlands, Europe With Years of Research and Development (R&D) With Only the Best Quality Materials And Latest Innovative Technology to Bring you The Best Ironing Experience Possible.

The little touches are what make for a great guest experience. So I make it a priority to put out something special for every season. This may be a beautiful poinsettia on the dining room table for Christmas, or several pumpkins on the front porch for Halloween.
- Welcome Doormat for All Year - Non- slip seasons changeable doormat contains 3 switch mat inserts and 1 rubber doormat tray.The Christmas doormat is topped with blue PE surface with "Merry Christmas" text, snowman and snowflakes pattern.

- Compact & Stylish – Takes up minimum counter space and can be easily stored in cupboards and drawers but with its great modern styling, you just might want to leave it out in the open.
Chalk Board Noting Host’s Favorite Spots
My guests rave about my chalkboard that I hang in the bathroom, directly across from the water closet. It lists out all of my favorite restaurants, coffee shops, and destinations.
I figure this is a place where I have your undivided attention to teach you about the area. Of course, the chalkboard has been sprayed permanently, so you can’t do any funny business while you’re doing your business.
1 used from $17.99
- BEAUTIFUL DESIGN - This classic rustic wall mounted chalkboard will look great in your home, business, or event. Our chalkboard frames are made with beautiful solid Russian Pine Wood. The set comes with a FREE eraser and box of chalk to get you started right away!
- MAGNETIC CHALKBOARD SURFACE - Attach pictures, notes and lists right onto the writing area. All of our framed chalkboards are made with high quality magnetic porcelain steel.
USB Ports In Outlets And End Tables
There is nothing worse than a phone charging cable that won’t reach the couch! So when I found these end tables with charging ports built-in, I had to have them. I’ve received several compliments on these end tables from guests.
3 used from $59.99
- Side Table With Charging Station: The Industrial end table has three USB charging ports and two standard outlets that quickly charge your phone, lamp, and laptop. And the side design of the charging station that you no need to worry about the charging area is on the side of the table; you don't have to worry about the cable mess when charging.
- Ample Storage Space: This square end table features 2-tiers of shelves for storing or displaying. Combining the metal frame with solid MDF helps the stability and durability of this set of nightstands. These brown bedside tables are ideal for setting down drinks and books or displaying decor and houseplants.
Other options for charging ports include electrical outlets that have charging ports built-in. These are fairly easy to switch out with your existing outlets.
Most kits come with either an aluminum internal stove that sits in the water or an external stove with pipes for heat exchange. Keep in mind that a concrete foundation is usually required.
The downside to a wood-fired hot tub is that it takes between 1-4 hours to heat the water, depending on the outdoor temperature. Some guests may enjoy the experience of building the fire, making dinner, and then jumping in for a late-night soak. Others may not have the patience for such an endeavor. But of course, they don’t have to use it in that case! Don’t forget the plastic solo cups!
- 2-pack USB outlets. Upgraded Charging Tech: In-wall ultra-high speed USB Wall Charger with total output 4.8A, 24W, 5VDC. Each port reaches up to 2.4A maximum. Does not support Quick Charge
- Smart intelliChip USB ports read the power needed to maximize charging efficiency up to 2. 4A per port or up to what the device allows without overcharging; for use with iPhone 11 Pro/11/XS/MAX/XR/X/8/7, Samsung Galaxy, Airpods, Fire Stick, wireless security cameras, and more
To-Go Coffee Cups With Lids
Some paper coffee cups and plastic lids can be extremely helpful for guests who are on the go in the morning. I leave enough for a couple of mornings, and guests have really appreciated this extra offering.
- This package contains 156 Dixie to go 12-ounce insulated paper cups and lids (case of 6 26 count packs) with a variety of 5 different textured designs
- Our leak-resistant snap-on lids are not only perfect for your on-the-go needs, but also for when you need convenience at home
- Dixie to go cups feature PerfecTouch technology that insulates both hot and cold beverages and provides a non-slip grip
- Dixie to go cups fit in most single-serve coffee brewers to speed up your mornings
Amazon Echo or Google Home Device
There are several helpful features that these devices offer, such as finding out a great place for dinner, getting directions to a local sports venue, getting the weather, or controlling your smart thermostat/ lighting.
You are able to play music on these smart devices, but a subscription is typically required. Hosts can put Echos in different rooms of the house to provide added flexibility for guests.
But are these devices really necessary? Well, they may provide a bigger “wow” factor for guests, potentially leading to a better review. On the other hand, you run the risk of a guest stealing the device. You would also be providing a device that is already built into every cell phone on the market.
13 used from $92.90

When guests come to stay in a new town, they may not be totally comfortable with the neighborhood, or surroundings. When guests leave during the day to do their activities, they may feel more comfortable if they had a place to put their expensive belongings.
You could offer your guests a sturdy safe that can be programmed by the guest during their stay. It may give your guests peace of mind, and a better review!
- 0.5-cubic-feet security safe with electronic lock and 3 operation indicator lights; powered by (4) AA batteries (not included)
- Includes 2 emergency override keys to protect against forgotten passcodes or dead batteries; keep keys in a well-hidden, secure location

In my Airbnb, I keep some vintage-looking postcards of my city in the desk drawer. I put a postage stamp on each one with some pens sitting close by. I like giving the guests something to discover, and it puts a smile on their face. And more than a few guests have commented what a nice touch that was.

Nightlight or Flashlight
When guests wake up in the middle of the night, they may be a little disoriented to where they are. Giving them a lighted path to the bathroom may help them navigate through your home. You could also provide a flashlight in the bedroom nightstand.
7 used from $15.19

Although my city is mostly sunny year-round, there are occasional times when a rainstorm or thunderstorm hits. As an extra amenity, I offer guests an umbrella for the off-chance that they might need one. If you live in a rainy area, this may be more of an essential item.
- Durable Material: Made of light and waterproof pongee fabric. Breathable double layer canopy and smooth top, using a high-quality stainless steel frame, so the body is firm and able to withstand strong winds.
- Inside-out Design: Reverse folding umbrella design concept. You can open this inverted umbrella as you open the door or car and not get wet. When closed, the wet side of umbrella becomes inside with the dry side exposed, so there are never wet your clothes, car, floor, bag etc.
If you want to cater to young families with children, you may want to invest in a crib. Although I don’t allow small children in my properties, I’ve had many potential guests ask if kids are allowed and if a crib is available. If you do allow small children in your home, keep in mind there will be extra clean-up for the cleaner, due to all the sticky little hands touching on everything.
- CONVERTIBLE CRIB: Converts from a crib to a toddler bed, daybed and full size bed with headboard & footboard (Daybed Rail included; Toddler Guardrail 0080 and Full Size Bed Rails 0050 sold separately)

Games, Puzzles & Books
Sometimes guests want to put down their phone, turn off the TV and just have some old-fashioned entertainment with their family or friends. Provide some fun board games or puzzles that can be played on a cold winter night. Or you might consider providing some funny books or books from the area. I provide a couple of historical books of the area and a couple of books filled with local photos and activities.
- Set of 12 5 inch fun magnetic board games enjoyable for kids and adults to play with.mini board games for travelling

I recently ran across this cute little creature at a hotel I was staying at. I was impressed that someone took the time to make such a creation for their guests. Although I haven’t implemented this at my Airbnb, it may be something I consider doing in the future. Once you or your housekeeper get the process down, I think it wouldn’t take much time to make.
In the event of a wardrobe mishap, you may be the guest’s savior by providing a sewing kit. You never know when a guest will need to sew up an evening gown strap or a hole in some pants.
- Perfect Sewing Kit : The kit contains all the necessary tools that are required for performing basic repairs - be it a needles, threads, scissors, buttons, thimble, threader tools, seam ripper and all sewing tools, everything neatly packaged ready for your use.
