Online vacation rental marketplaces such as Airbnb and VRBO have been a popular and fast-growing segment of the hospitality market in recent years. According to Business Insider, Airbnb has grown from 47,000 summer rentals in 2010 to over 17 million in summer 2015. Rental properties range from condos and beach houses to more exotic accommodations such as tree houses, yurts, and castles.
Property owners who rent their houses and condos utilize the same hotel amenity supplies as hotels and motels. Air Concierge suggests stocking units with must-have items such as soaps and shampoos, bed and bath linens, and personal care items such as razors and feminine products. Additional products that property owners may find useful include pillow and mattress protectors to protect expensive mattresses and bedding.
With the upcoming summer vacation season rapidly approaching, rentals from sites such as Airbnb will be increasing. Stocking up on essential supplies is imperative. Look to Hotel Supplies-Online as your one-stop shop for your necessary hospitality supplies.
