As an Airbnb host, one of the best things you can do for your business is earn Superhost Status.
That’s because Airbnb Superhosts have instant credibility with potential guests (not to mention, greater visibility in search results!)
And, becoming a Superhost is surprisingly simple.
Ensuring your guests have a wonderful stay with thoughtful touches for your dining area can go a long way in getting the glowing reviews you need to meet the Superhost criteria.
Read on for a complete list of dining essentials your guests will LOVE. Whether or not you have a formal dining room, your guests will expect a great dining setup that meets all their needs at mealtime. If you want more 5-star reviews, make sure you don’t miss this one!

Airbnb Checklist: Dining Room Essentials Your Guests Will Love
Buy at least twice as many table settings as your max occupancy.
Make sure to buy 2-3x as many water glasses as your maximum occupancy. That way, guests can use more than one glass at a time, they don’t have to wash between each use, and you have plenty of backups when one or two (inevitably) break.
Stemless wine glasses are ideal for you Airbnb because they’re less likely to spill or break than a typical wine glass.
That said, these can (and probably will!) still break. So, make sure to stock your Airbnb with plenty and expect to buy replacement glasses as needed.
(Don’t forget to provide these cooking essentials that’ll help you earn Superhost status.)
It’s important to have plenty of coasters around to encourage guests to protect your furniture.
Plates, bowls, and mugs
Your guests will love that these porcelain plates, bowls, and mugs look nice and feel high quality. Make sure to buy at least twice as many as your maximum occupancy.
Serving bowls & platters
These aren’t essential, but if your Airbnb guests want to serve a nice dinner, they’ll appreciate having a few bowls and plates to serve with.

Dining table & chairs
When it comes to selecting your dining table and chairs, you need these to fit with the overall style of your Airbnb. So, I’m sharing a few different options below:
- Mid-century modern: table and chairs
- Farmhouse: table and chairs
- Best for large groups: table and chairs
Airbnb Hosting Tip: For a stylish and thoughtful look, make sure to buy chairs that coordinate with your table, but don’t match.
I hope this Airbnb checklist saves you tons of time setting up your Airbnb. (Congrats, by the way! Starting your first Airbnb is a HUGE accomplishment!)
