Vacation Rental Pantry Checklist

When stocking your vacation rental pantry, follow this checklist to ensure your guests leave happy.

The Basics

At the very least, supply the basics:

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper

One Step Further

The next level of essentials that are often expected and definitely appreciated:

  • Coffee
  • Tea (variety pack)
  • Coffee filters
  • Powdered creamer
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Steak seasoning
  • Chili powder
  • Cooking oil
  • Vinegar
  • Cooking spray
  • Vanilla extract
  • Flour

Going Above and Beyond

More dry goods that are nice to have, are non-perishables, and easy to maintain:

  • Bouillon cubes
  • Decaf coffee
  • Hot chocolate
  • Cinnamon
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Drink mixes
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Pancake mix
  • Brown sugar
  • Yeast

    Perishables are often offered, but you are treading on thin ice here. Do not provide these items unless you can guarantee food safety. How? Either individual packets. Or try the “stay clean cap” style of container.

    Buy small sizes in bulk and toss out opened jars of jams and condiments.

    Additionally, and as long as you keep lids wiped clean between guests, the following items are occasionally made available.

    • Soy sauce
    • Hot sauce
    • Worcestershire sauce
    • Maple syrup
    • Ketchup
