Hosts might have a tough time picking out the best couch or sofa for their rental, so I’ve compiled Rental Recon’s top 3 picks to help narrow down the options for you!
Here are our picks for the Best Couches for a Vacation Rental or Airbnb (Including Sectionsals & Sleeper Sofas):
- TOP Pick: Revolve Modern Upholstered Sofa Couch
- Runner Up: Josh Traditional Sofa Couch
- Best Budget Option: Emily Futon Sofa Bed
- For Cool Factor: Nola Sofa Bed
Our Top Pick: Revolve Modern Upholstered Sofa Couch
The Revolve Modern Upholstered Sofa Couch is my TOP pick for your next vacation rental or Airbnb sofa! I love its mid-century modern style, but it isn’t so prominent that it wouldn’t fit in with just about any décor or theme. Its solid wood frame means that it is durable and won’t bend or sag over time like some cheaper metal-framed couches.
I also like that the cushions are removable, making cleaning so much easier. It’s also a good idea to have removable cushions in case one needs to be replaced (which can be pretty frequently in a vacation rental, unfortunately).
I do feel that it is a much higher quality piece of furniture than many hosts opt to use in their Airbnbs, and there is definitely a luxury factor at play as well.
Worried you’re missing out on something in another part of your rental? I’ve been refining my Vacation Rentals Essentials Checklist for years to help make sure that you’re the best host you can be. Check it out HERE!
Runner Up: Josh Traditional Sofa Couch
The Josh Traditional Sofa Couch strikes a great balance between affordability and style. It has a very classic look that should fit in with most interior design schemes, and the color is neutral enough that it won’t be too obtrusive. However, its durable and easy to clean fabric won’t be too quick to show stains either!
- Note : To ensure proper assembly, please follow all steps provided in the installation manual (provided in pdf below)
- RIGHT AT HOME, WHERE EVER HOME MAY BE - Like the “little black dress” of your living room, this timeless sofa features soft lines, a neutral toned fabric and a soft yet supportive feel that pairs effortlessly against any home interior
- BUILT TO LAST - A naturally strong frame is wrapped in supportive foam cushioning and durable woven fabric; seats a maximum weight capacity of 750 lbs; seat cushions are secured to the frame and are not detachable, while back cushions are detachable
It’s a very attractive piece, but might not work well in a more modern home. It does look cozy and inviting, though, which is perfect for enticing guests to sit down and relax.
The cushions are removable, which I love, and it can be easily cleaned using a damp cloth and some mild soap in case of spills. If worse comes to worst, you can always flip the pillows over in a pinch!
While not technically a budget item, it’s significantly less expensive than the previous couch which makes it a good fit for those looking for style, comfort, and a good price point.
Once you’ve picked out which couch or sofa you’ll be incorporating into your rental’s living space, be sure to check out my living room checklist so you don’t miss out on any critical items!

Best Budget Option: Emily Futon Sofa Bed
Emily Futon Sofa Bed is my top budget pick! This classic futon-style sofa bed has all the functionality of your favorite foldaway bed without looking like it came out of a college dorm room.
I find it pretty stylish, but it is very modern looking and definitely looks like a futon, not a couch.
- Modern low profile design futon frame with chrome metal legs and square tufted backrest and seating
- Split back design provides multiple positions including lounging and sleeping for top comfort
- Pair with the matching chair, chaise lounger and/or ottoman for a sectional look and extra seating or sleeping space (all sold separately)
- Futon Dimensions: 71"W x 34"D x 32"H; Sleeping Dimensions: 71"L x 43"W x 16"H; Weight Limit: 600 lb.
The faux-leather fabric is super easy to wipe off in case of a spill and doesn’t stain easily. However, faux leather can be prone to tearing and discoloration over time.
Price is where this piece really shines! It is super affordable and will allow you to sleep extra guests in your vacation rental, so it can easily pay for itself in no time at all.
