Packing List items for Airbnb stay

#1 Easy Recipes

Easy Recipes

No products found.

Planning your meals and having easy recipes to hand can be really useful. Easy to clean up and pack up meals that won’t take a lot of work to prepare so your not spending your vacation time browsing/searching for easy recipes.

#2 Mini Toiletries

Mini Toiletries

No products found.

Whilst some hosts may already provide toiletries there’s no guarantee. Bring your own travel size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Buy some refillable bottles and stock up using what you already have at home.

#3 Must have spices

Must have spices

No products found.

Whilst hosts may provide cooking supplies, it can be strange using supplies that are already open. Bring your own mini spice kit with you. I recommend a herb shaker with herb assortments.

#4 Laundry


No products found.

Many rentals include laundry facility so you can pack lighter for longer trips.  Might be worth bringing detergent packs/packets though, just in case your host doesn’t provide this or if you have strong brand preferences.

#5 TV Stick

TV Stick

No products found.

All make streaming “sticks” that are lightweight devices packed with entertainment.  Several cable providers now offer full service via WiFi, so you can connect your stick of choice and stream all the channels you’re used to.  If you’re travelling internationally, Netflix seems to be the viable option.

#6 Travel Router

Travel Router

No products found.

Airbnbs generally have wifi available (and you can filter for this when searching on Airbnb’s site). If you’re a heavy electronics user, bringing a lightweight travel router is nice to avoid setting up a new network for every device each time you travel.

#7 Packing Cubes

Packing Cubes

No products found.

These help separate your items and find things more quickly once you get there.

#8 Zip Lock Bags

Zip Lock Bags

No products found.

Use zip lock bags to organise your packing: whether is your phone charger, camera charger, adapters, headphones, all those fiddly bits that can get misplaced, use zip lock bags to store electrical items, things for the journey home (house keys, parking ticket and car keys), medication and other loose accessories.

#9 Scented Drawer Liners

Scented Drawer Liners

No products found.

It is important to keep your clothes fresh on your trip. You can do this by taking scented drawer liners and keep your clothes smelling fresh throughout your trip.

#10 Beach Towels

Beach Towels

No products found.

This is a great holiday towel. Features dries quickly, and dries itself. A mandatory purchase in these days of restricted luggage allowance.
