Stocking the Vacation Rental Pantry

At the very least your vacation rental pantry should include the basics:

□ Sugar
□ Salt
□ Pepper

The next level of pantry 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

More dry goods that are nice to have in your vacation rental pantry, and as non-perishables, 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 pantry items are occasionally made available.

□ Soy sauce
□ Tabasco sauce
□ Worcestershire sauce
□ Maple syrup
