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 kitchen essentials your guests will LOVE. If you want more 5-star Airbnb reviews, make sure you don’t miss this one!

Airbnb Checklist: 15+ Essential Items to Keep Stocked in Your Airbnb Kitchen

When deciding which kitchen items to keep stocked for guests, my general rule of thumb is to provide anything that multiple guests: (a) need, (b) would use very little of during their stay, and (c) aren’t likely to bring in their suitcase. This Airbnb checklist includes all of the items I recommend keeping stocked for your guests.

Leaving a small bag of coffee out is a great way to welcome your guests!

Coffee filters


Paper towel


These tea bags come in their own boxes that double as dispensers, so you can easily put them right into the cupboard.

Providing tea isn’t essential, but guests notice small details like this. (My guests have specifically said they appreciate that I provide tea!)

(Don’t forget to provide these cooking essentials that’ll help you earn Superhost status.)

Salt & pepper

Other basic seasonings

Olive oil & balsamic vinegar

Buying in bulk is key to saving money when stocking olive oil and vinegar for your guests (which they’ll really appreciate when they don’t want to buy their own oil for cooking or forget to pick up a salad dressing at the store.)

Just make sure you buy these refillable bottles too, to add a beautiful touch to your kitchen counters.

Dish detergent

Jet Dry

Trash bags

Dish soap


Ziploc bags

Small details like ziploc bags are rare to find in an Airbnb. So when your guests go searching for a baggy, they’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that you keep them stocked. It’s all in the details!

Plastic wrap

Aluminum foil


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!)
