As Airbnb Superhosts, we know that part of what draws guests to rent with us over traditional hotels is that we provide a homey experience. We’ve developed our in-depth Airbnb kitchen essentials checklist for hosts. Here we go!
What are the Airbnb Kitchen Essentials that Every Host Should Have in their Vacation Rental?
Hosts should consider having Airbnb kitchen essentials such as a coffee maker/ coffee, quality pots and pans, utensils, mixing bowls, cooking oil, and everything necessary for guests to prepare a gourmet meal during their stay.
Coffee Maker & Coffee
Coffee makers are standard in hotel rooms these days, although they’re not typically recognized for their quality. We provide a good-quality Keurig in most of our vacation rentals. It uses coffee pods, so there’s no messy cleanup and is simple for guests to use.
6 used from $44.48
- Note: 1)Too coarse a grind, too little coffee, or insufficiently tamping the grounds before brewing can all lead to inadequate pressure for a proper brew. 2)It is important to note that the amount of espresso extracted will vary depending on the grind size and amount and reprogramming may be needed when the size and amount are adjusted.Please refer to user guide or user manual or user guide (provided below in PDF) before first use
While not technically an appliance, a water filter pitcher is something your guests will certainly use and appreciate multiple times a day. Even if your local tap water is the highest quality, most guests just feel more comfortable knowing their water has been filtered.
We have run through a lot of different coffee pods in our vacation rentals. After a lot of testing, we have landed on these Starbucks coffee pods for guests. These pods received the most positive statements in guest reviews.
- PREMIUM COFFEE IN KEURIG K-CUPS—Starbucks delivers exceptional coffee cup after cup with Pike Place Roast medium roast coffee K-Cups—96 total coffee pods for Keurig coffee makers
- STARBUCKS PIKE PLACE ROAST COFFEE—A smooth, well-rounded blend of Latin American coffees with subtly rich notes of cocoa and rich praline, it’s perfect for every day
- FRESH TASTE—Starbucks adheres to the highest quality standards—shipping you the same carefully roasted 100% arabica coffee beans we brew in our cafés
Coffee Pod Organizer
A coffee pod organizer is a must-have if your Airbnb features a single-serve coffee maker. Rummaging through a drawer for the flavor you’re craving is not exactly ideal. The K-Cup Carousel takes up very little counter space but still holds 35 pods! I recommend stocking a variety of options: flavored, unflavored, decaf, and tea.
1 used from $14.99
- COFFEE POD CAROUSEL: This Nifty carousel is compatible with K-Cups and stylishly showcases up to 35 of your favorite coffee pods. The lazy Susan base platform revolves and spins 360-degrees, which makes it simple and convenient to find and choose your preferred flavor.
- MODERN DESIGN: The modern, black powder-coated design looks fantastic on the countertop in the kitchen, your dorm room, or in the office coffee bar. Even the heaviest of coffee drinkers will want this carousel to easily brew a cup of coffee.
Coffee syrups are a really special amenity to offer. They allow guests to have their own mini-barista experience without fancy equipment. However, you do get host bonus points if you offer more than one way to make coffee in your Airbnb! If you currently have a single-serve coffee maker, something else like a French press allows guests more control over their morning brew.
- Bring home signature Starbucks café flavor with Starbucks Naturally Flavored syrups and sauces. Elevate your morning coffee
- Starbucks Naturally Flavored Vanilla Syrup has a sweet and rich flavor, Caramel Syrup has a smooth and buttery flavor, and Hazelnut Syrup has a rich and nutty flavor flavor
- Starbucks syrups and sauces pair perfectly with your favorite Starbucks coffee
- Add one tablespoon to your 12-oz. coffee for a splash of smooth and buttery caramel flavor
If you’re offering ground coffee instead of coffee pods for your guests, you should highly consider providing a coffee grinder and whole beans. Some would find this as more of a luxury during their stay. You can’t argue with the aroma of freshly ground coffee!
- Clear Top Cover and One-Touch Control allows for operation at the touch of a button—simply push down on the cover to begin grinding and release to stop. The clear cover also allows you to easily see the consistency of grinds.
- Stainless Steel Blade offers durability and powerful performance, quickly grinding enough whole coffee beans to make up to 12 cups of coffee.
- Removable 4-Oz. Stainless Steel Bowl features measurement markings on the inside, so you know at a glace the quantity of coffee beans needed to make 4, 8, 10 or 12 cups of coffee. The bowl lifts out, making it easy to transfer grinds to the coffee maker.
Electric kettles are starting to gain some traction here in the US after years of widespread use in other countries. They allow guests to easily enjoy a hot beverage, instant soup, and more, all at the touch of a button. This one by Cosori has an incredibly sleek look and features an LED light indicator and a safety shut-off. It also does not allow itself to be turned on without water inside, saving you and your guests from accidental mishaps.
15 used from $22.49
- SUPERIOR MATERIALS--Your kettle is made with high-quality borosilicate glass, and 304 stainless steel to keep your water safe and tasting pure for years to come.

Sharp Knives & Cutting Board
Knives are arguably the most important cooking tool, and good ones can last a lifetime. For those reasons, it’s worth investing in a high-quality knife block. This block comes with 19 different knives that are all dishwasher safe.
- ULTRA RAZOR-SHARP: ZWILLING knives start out razor-sharp and stay sharper longer, even with minimal care. 57 Rockwell Hardness = excellent edge retention. Edge angle 15 degrees per side.
- THE LAST KNIFE YOU’LL EVER NEED TO BUY: Zwilling knives are built to last. They are German engineered informed by almost 300 Years of masterful knife making.
- WE KNOW MORE ABOUT KNIVES THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD: ZWILLING has been making knives since 1731 in the renowned “City of Blades” Solingen, Germany and we are constantly innovating to bring you the best knives possible.
Stove Mitts & Trivet Mats
No one likes scrambling to use a dishtowel in a hurry to grab something hot out of the oven. Some durable hot pads solve this problem. These are machine washable too, and the black color option won’t show any unfortunate stains that may occur.
1 used from $18.19
- OVEN MITTS AND POTHOLDER SET: The oven mitts (5.9*11 inch) and potholders (7.1*10.3 inch) can protect your wrists and forearms very well. Combination of silicone and cotton for maximum flexibility and heat protection; soft and super comfortable.
- HEAT RESISTANT UP TO 500 DEGREES: Whether you take a pan or steaming pot out of your oven, or tending to a grill, you can rest assured that your hands and forearms will be well protected by these high quality, heat resistant oven mitts and potholders.
You will also want some trivets for guests to set their hot dishes on, instead of using your gorgeous counter.
**Make sure to have a fire extinguisher close by and in a place where guests know it is available for use if the need arises.
The toaster is where the “breakfast” part of your bed and breakfast can really shine through. Even if guests aren’t in the mood to cook a full-on meal, they can still have a quick early meal.
5 used from $26.99
- EXTRA WIDE TOASTING SLOTS to fit extra thick slices of bread products such as Texas Toast, bagels and specialty breads.

- CONVENIENT CANCEL BUTTON lets you quickly cancel and release the toast in the middle of the toasting cycle.
An electric mixer is what will really elevate your Airbnb kitchen experience to the next level. It will allow guests to do their own baking, which is a huge bonus that most don’t expect. Choose a bright red for a pop of color, or the classic stainless steel for a sleek, timeless look.
1 used from $55.65
- Same mixing action as KitchenAid stand mixers. This mixer performs better than 2-beater stand mixers, and features the popular tilt-up head design for adding ingredients and changing attachments quickly.

Pots, Pans & Cookware
You won’t get very far cooking without some nice pots and pans. This set makes cooking (and cleaning) a pleasure. All stainless steel, this set has everything your guests will need to cook the meal of their dreams. We like stainless steel as the surface on Teflon tends to wear off over time looking dated.
- Set includes: 8 inches fry pan, 10.5 inches fry pan, 12 inches fry pan with lid, 1 quart saucepan with lid, 2 quart; Saucepan with lid, 3 quart; Saucepan with lid, 5 quart; Dutch oven with lid and stainless steel steamer
- Multi layer strength: Heavy gauge base with multiple layers of copper, stainless steel and aluminum for fast, even heat; Durable 18/10 stainless steel; Visible copper bottom helps channel heat from the center outward
Pans for the Oven
You will definitely want to provide some glass pans for baking. At a minimum, you should have a circular baking sheet for pizza night and a 9×13 pan so guests can cook a multitude of items including casseroles, veggies, or a cake.
Mixing bowls are another must-have for any guest looking to cook or bake. OXO’s 3-piece set features grip handles and convenient pour spouts for mess-free use. They even have no-skid rubber on the bottom, so there won’t be any frustrating sliding around. Since they nest for convenient storage, space-saving doesn’t have to be a concern.
- 3-Piece Set includes 1.5-quart, 3-quart and 5-quart Mixing Bowls
- 1-1/2-quart size perfect for whisking eggs or salad dressings, 3-quart size designed for use with electric mixers, 5-quart size ideal for tossing salads or serving popcorn

Measuring Cups and Spoons

1 used from $17.66

After staying at several Airbnbs that provided baking supplies for their guests, we decided to offer the same amenities at our vacation rentals. This doesn’t take much extra effort to offer these items, and guests really appreciate having flour, baking powder, sugar, a rolling pin, an electric beater, a sifter, a loaf pan/cake pan, aluminum foil, and vanilla ready for guests to use if the mood strikes.
A good set of cookware will go a long way in impressing your guests, even those used to fancy kitchens at their own homes. This 23-piece set even includes measuring cups and a can opener!

It goes without saying that Airbnb hosts are expected to provide some silverware. This set has service for 4, which is usually more than enough. Depending on the size of your Airbnb, you may choose to purchase a few sets so your guests will never run out.
You should also provide a silverware organizer so everything is in it’s proper place. Make sure that your cleaner wipes out this area between guests, as crumbs in the drawer can be a major downer.
- Include 20 piece utensils, consist of 4 dinner knives, 4 dinner forks, 4 dinner spoons, 4 salad forks, 4 tea spoons
- Durable, constructed by high quality rust-resistant stainless steel, durable for everyday use

- Proper weight, proper gauge to hold comfortably, easy to clean by hand wash, dishwasher safe makes cleaning a breeze
Cups and Dishes
As a host, you don’t want to be spending time and money constantly replacing broken dishes. Get yourself a set of heavy-duty dishes like these to avoid the hassle. This matching set features plates of two different sizes, mugs, and bowls. It comes in 4 different color-striped options to add a pop of interest to your Airbnb kitchen essentials. I personally love the red, as it reminds me of a diner set.
- 16-piece round dinnerware set of matching plates, bowls and coffee mugs; service for 4
- AB-grade porcelain; BPA-free; lightweight yet durable
- Elegant white with contemporary red-trim detail
- Safe in your microwave and oven as well as dishwasher-safe
- Includes 4 each: 10.5-inch dinner plate, 7.5-inch salad/dessert plate, 5.5 x 2.75-inch bowl, and 4-inch-tall coffee/tea mug
Your Airbnb should be a unique experience for your guests. After all, if they wanted to stay at a boring hotel, they would have. Having some fun mugs in your cabinet can give them an unexpected laugh in the morning. Mix and match until you have an eclectic set. It’s great when each guest can find something fun that matches their personality!
- Get Your Daily Dose Of Caffeine In Epic Style: Imagine stumbling into the kitchen, feeling like a zombie, and there it is – the pill bottle coffee mug, your caffeinated superhero. With a mug this big, your daily drowsiness doesn't stand a chance!
- A Big Mug For A Big Buzz: This funny mug has a 12-ounce capacity and features a “Prescription Coffee” label, reminding you that coffee is the best medicine. It’s the ideal prescription mug for your caffeine therapy.
Wine glasses are another fun way to make your vacation rental stand out from the rest. Having a classic set is always a good idea, but I also like to have some that are a little more unique. Stemless glasses are very trendy at the moment, and there are a plethora of shops that offer customized etching so that you can really make an impression on your guests.
- ERGONOMIC DESIGN - Our stemless glass features an ergonomic design to make sure that you have the most comfortable grip while sipping your drink.
- LASER ENGRAVED - Our transparent stemless glass features laser engraved design that will not peel, crack or fade easily even after regular use.
- STABLE BASE - This stemless glass is more stable than a traditional wine glass. You no longer have to worry about spills and sloshes.
Cooking Oils- Olive Oil & Vinegar
Even when guests come expecting to cook, they rarely are able to bring their own supplies. Fresh food can easily be purchased locally, but few guests are going to want to spend money on supplies they won’t use up during their stay. Having a cooking oil set on hand alleviates this issue. Simply fill with oil and vinegar and your guests can do the rest.
- EASY POUR & NO SPILLAGE - One collapsible funnel for an easy pour experience and four spout seals provided to avoid any spillage problems; Hassle free olive oil dispenser bottle set
- CONVENIENT - Unlike our competitors, each of our Oil and Vinegar Dispenser set can hold up to 17 oz, so you won't have to worry about old oil often. Built to automatically ventilate as well, for easy pouring over salads, pastas, sandwiches, and more
Napkins & Paper Towels
Messes are inevitable, so napkins and paper towels are a must. We put one paper towel roll on a nice paper towel dispenser like this one and provide at least one extra roll in the cupboard. Provide some cleaning spray of your choice for guests to clean up those larger messes. Napkins should be provided as well. We typically have a nice napkin holder like this one.
1 used from $22.42
- ONE AT A TIME - The variable tension arm provides just enough resistance to tear off one sheet at a time with just one hand.
- HEAVY-DUTY WEIGHTED BASE - Weighted stainless steel base keeps the dispenser steady.
- FINGER LOOP - Makes the holder easy to pick up and move.
Salt, Pepper & Spice Rack
Another ingredient that can be prohibitively expensive for guests to buy on their own is spices. Most will only use a few teaspoons at a time (if that), so having a well-stocked spice rack at their disposal is easy and convenient. Of course, as a baseline, Airbnb hosts should provide salt and pepper for their guests. But typically, hosts provide the following spices:
- Garlic Powder
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Curry Powder
- Chili Powder
- Cayenne Pepper
6 used from $23.15
- SET INCLUDES: 1 rotating spice rack and 20 prefilled, glass spice jars with removable sifter and labeled black caps
- 20 ESSENTIAL SPICES: includes basil, bay leaves, celery salt, chives, cilantro, coriander, crushed mint, dill weed, fennel seed, herbes de provence, Italian seasoning, marjoram, oregano, parsley, pizza seasoning, rosemary, savory seasoning, sea salt, seas
- STYLISH STORAGE: the rotating, polished stainless steel rack keeps spices neat and easily accessible on countertops or in cabinets
Pasta is always a popular meal to cook amongst Airbnb guests. It only takes a few ingredients and a few dishes to throw together a fantastic meal. I always like to have a few basic options such as spaghetti and macaroni on hand for guests to use. Be sure to provide a colander for a hassle-free dinner.
The grater is the unsung hero of your Airbnb kitchen essentials. You might try a microplane style that gives off delicate, fine shavings of everything from cheese to nutmeg. It has the added bonus of being a lot less bulky than the traditional box graters.
- Fantastic Results Without The Fatigue - With minimal effort you can perfectly shred and slice cheese and vegetables. Get creative and make dinner exciting again by grating, slicing and making fresh zest to take your meals to another level. Best of all, it's dishwasher safe.
- Food Prep Done Fast With Our New Extra Wide Size: Shred a block of cheese in no time with this wonderful product that is effective and durable. This professional version has a contoured shape that is wider than our original grater and makes grating cheese and soft foods easy and also allows for a greater holding capacity.
A simple pizza cutter is easy to forget when providing your Airbnb’s kitchen essentials, but your guests will certainly notice its omission when they find themselves in need of one!
- ✅【QUALITY PIZZA CUTTER】- SCHVUBENR Kitchen designed this pizza cutter with craftmanship. This product adopts one-piece riveting process which makes it can achieve more than 1000 TIMES cutting, super durable.

Wine Opener & Stopper
Few things are more frustrating than trying to finagle your way into a bottle of wine after you find yourself without a corkscrew. Save your guests the headache with a wine opener. Restaurant quality, it will stand up to daily use. A bottle stopper is also a great “extra.”
- 【High-quality & Ease Of Use】 Each element of our set is made of high-quality materials due to its simple and attractive design made of durable stainless steel, it provides an excellent combination of beauty and practicality. The ergonomic design manual lever opener is the perfect partner for elegant dinners. Adapt a lever principle that removes the cork in a few seconds with a simple action.
- 【Durable Material Of The Gift】: Made of heavy-duty zinc alloy with bronze-plated grips , metal gears& a Teflon-coated spiral. Luxurious and durablity ,we can use them as a handy tool enough longer.
A meat thermometer is something a lot of us like to imagine we’ll never use. The reality is that this little tool is indispensable, especially if your vacation rental has a grill. Give your guests the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their meat is cooked to perfection. This very affordable option reads in just 3-5 seconds and even comes with a 3-year warranty.
- 2-IN-1 STYLE MEAT THERMOMETER: GAISTEN meat thermometer digital has dual probe options. Unplug the wire and you have a handheld plug-in probe. The wired external probe is removable and can be left in the smoker or oven. You don't have to keep opening the oven door multiple times. The plug-in probe can fold up and is great for barbecuing and checking temps for prime rib, steaks
- WORRY-FREE TEMP ALARM-OVEN SAFE: This meat thermometers for grilling is easy to use, especially for novice users-Just stick it in, set the desired temp, and take the food out when it beeps. No more guesswork with the meat's doneness and no more standing in front of a hot oven and taking the roast out multiple times to test temps. The temperature chart is included in the manual. This digital food thermometer is specially designed to be safe for use in ovens and grilling
A salad spinner is a very handy tool that allows guests to quickly and easily pull together a meal. Plus, it can be used for much more than just salads: washing produce, storing veggies, and so much more.
7 used from $26.49

Trash Can & Recycling
A trash can in an Airbnb kitchen is a no-brainer, but what about recycling? A combo trash and recycling bin give an attractive, all-in-one solution to your guests. This one comes in a variety of sizes and finishes, so there is one for every kitchen space.
- NEAT AND SECURE - Stainless steel liner rim flips up for a quick and easy liner change, then closes over the liner to hold it tightly in place and keep it hidden from sight.
- LINER POCKET - Keep liners where you need them. Dispense them one by one — no perforations or unraveling — from inside the can for a faster liner change.
- CLEANER STAINLESS STEEL - simplehuman's invisible silver-ion coating resists fingerprints and the spread of germs without dulling the natural sheen and luster of the steel.
Utility scissors will make short work of herbs, veggies, meat and more. They even have a built-in bottle opener. I like to keep mine on the counter where they’re easily accessible to anyone who might need them. A lot of knife blocks even have a built-in spot for them. Another option is a small hook on the side of the fridge or cabinet, alongside other useful tools.
- A USEFUL SET FOR ANY KICTHEN: Everyone needs a pair of sharp shears and a pair of seafood scissors in their household. The kitchen scissors will make any meal preparation faster and the seafood peelers will help you remove the shells of shrimps and prawns fast and with ease. Gidli offers you both these cutting tools in one practical bundle that will make your life so much easier! So get the all-purpose utility scissors set and upgrade your kitchen equipment.
Food storage is less glamorous, but still an absolute necessity. This enormous set has more than enough pieces to store your guests’ leftovers. They stack very nicely in the fridge and cabinets for easy storage.
Attractive countertop food storage serves the two-fold purpose of function and style. I love these containers by OXO. The lid forms an airtight seal with a single, satisfying click. They are also very modular and can be arranged so that they’re very visually appealing. This allows you to store commonly used ingredients like pasta, flour, sugar or coffee in plain sight on the counter. In a way, it almost functions as an art piece itself.
- Set includes: one 2.1-qt Container, one 1.5-qt Container, two 0.9-qt Containers, and one 0.3-qt Container
- 5 Piece Value Set provides a savings of $9.96/16.61%

- Push the button for an airtight seal, push again to release. Button pops up to double as a built-in handle
- Shaped for maximum space efficiency; these stackable, modular canisters can be completely customized to fit any space
Speaking of art, no Airbnb kitchen is complete without a few stylized pieces on the wall. These botanical herb prints are unobtrusive yet very appropriately themed. They would work well in any kitchen space, and it’s possible to display just two or three at a time instead of the full set of six if your kitchen is short on space.
- 【READY TO FRAME】These 8x10 art prints are UNFRAMED. They are NOT canvas or tin.
- 【THE FINEST MATERIALS】 All fine art prints are professionally printed on high-performance matte paper with a subtle and elegant linen texture embossed onto the surface. The result adds just the right level of texture to your images without interfering with details.

Hand towels should always be included in your Airbnb kitchen, ideally in a few different locations. I like to keep one by the sink, a few on the oven door, and some extras stored away. This set of 4 is enough to get you started and is extremely affordable. Consider purchasing a few so you’ll always have clean ones ready.
- SUPER ABSORBENT - Microfiber material provides super absorbent water ability of the towels which could absorb water 6 times of itself.
- GENEROUSLY SIZED - Each towel measures 26 x 18 inches perfect size. This dish towel is oversize and good for kitchen as kitchen napkins.
- DURABLE & GOOD SHAPE - With excellent sewing process, the kitchen towel can always stay in a good shape after thrown into a washer. Color fading and shrink will not happen all the time even after tons of washing.
Decorative towels are another way to make your Airbnb kitchen pop. Try one with a strong motif, and the rest with a subtle pattern. Hanging these on the oven door (especially layered on top of more functional hand towels) helps make your kitchen a focal point.
- PERFECT FOR ALL YOUR KITCHEN TASKS: The decorative kitchen towels are large enough to assist you in all your kitchen activities everyday. These dish rags for cleaning are essential while cooking and baking your delicacies to maintain cleanliness and make a great kitchen and home decor.
- HIGHLY ABSORBENT & QUICK DRYING: These 100 % cotton linen kitchen hand towels are lightweight, super absorbent, quick drying making it reusable immediately and can be hanged anywhere after use.
Dish Drying Rack, Washcloths, Sponge, & Dish Soap
Doing the dishes is nobody’s favorite chore, but having the right tools on hand can make it a little more tolerable. Make sure you have washcloths/ sponge, and ample amounts of dish soap.
A soap dispensing brush makes washing dishes much easier. You can refill it with the dish soap of your choice, and then dispense small amounts by pressing a button.
- Squirts soap with the light push of a button
- Durable nylon bristles
- Scraper on backside of Brush easily removes baked-on food
- Bristles and scraper are safe for non-stick cookware. Simply pop off bottom of Brush handle to refill
Using a dish drying rack is so much faster and easier than towel drying all your dishes, pots, and pans. Who wouldn’t want more free time to go out and explore a new city? This one has a relatively small footprint of just over one square foot and features a compartment for silverware as well.
- Chrome finish combines elegance with functionality
- Color coated wire base to protect dishes, and increase stylish
- Small-sized drainer with slots to hold up more than 8 dishes
- Detachable plastic cutlery cup

Having some sandwich bags on hand allows your guests the flexibility to take a light snack with them on the go. They can also be used for storing certain leftovers, or even personal items if necessary.
- Three 30 ct boxes of Ziploc Sandwich and Snack Bags perfect for storing and transporting sandwiches and snacks
- Each Ziploc Sandwich bag features an extended tab and an easy-grip texture that makes them easy to use

- Plastic storage bags help storing food on the go and also work well for non-food items like craft supplies
- These plastic bags are the ideal size for your children's lunch or for office snacks
Plastic Bag Dispenser
A plastic bag dispenser is a much better option than the classic “bag full of bags” that most of us have under our sinks. Guests can use these for tons of different purposes: dirty laundry, souvenir bags, extra shopping bags, and more. Just be sure to let them know where it is!
- CONVENIENT GROCERY BAG HOLDER - Easily access your plastic grocery bags with this handy plastic bag holder storage solution, perfect for keeping your reusable bags neat and all in one place.
- PLASTIC BAG HOLDERS FOR GROCERY BAGS WITH EXTRA-WIDE OPENINGS - Quickly and easily grab all the bags you need from the wide dispensing slot on the bottom, or store your grocery bags by placing them in the top opening for clutter-free storage.
Matches can be very easily overlooked—that is, until you really need them. Whether you have a candle in your vacation rental (which you definitely should), or a pesky gas stove that needs help lighting, don’t forget to always have a box of matches on hand.
Its pretty surprising how much food can make it down the drain in your kitchen sink. If you don’t have a garbage disposal, you have probably dealt with clogged drains during a guest stay. We recommend medium-duty garbage disposal to help alleviate those problems.
If you personally check in your guests (or if you have a good idea of when they’ll be arriving) setting up a snack board for them is an amazing touch. Walking in to some meats and cheeses is always a welcome surprise. This board has spots to hold crackers, nuts, and more. It’s also antimicrobial.
- : Crafted from an environmentally conscious renewable material, 100% sustainably sourced bamboo wood, this charcuterie board is sleek, modern, & minimal in design, making it a timeless classic that will fit in with any table or kitchen decor. Upgrade your next wine night or dinner party by creating the perfect deli meat & cheese spread with crackers, olives, and fruit! Your guests are sure to be impressed by the clean, neat, and organized appetizer tray!

In short, it varies. The main factor to consider is your insurance. Some policies do allow Airbnb hosts to provide alcohol to guests, while some explicitly forbid it. In these cases, if you did provide the guests with alcohol and an incident occurred, your insurance may not cover it. Always check to be sure.
If your insurance does allow it, providing a local wine or craft beer is an awesome touch. If not, a guide to local vineyards or breweries shows guests that you care about them having a great time.
It is typically not expected, but some basic supplies will surely be welcome. Things like cooking oil and spices can be used over many different bookings, whereas something basic but perishable like eggs or milk would obviously need to be replenished more frequently. You can always ask your guests in advance if there is any particular thing they would like you to have on hand. Baking staples may be a nice offering to your guests for cakes, brownies, etc.
