If you’re a short-term rental host on platforms like Airbnb or VRBO, you know that curating a top-notch guest experience goes beyond just keeping a clean space. That’s where InHouse comes in. Designed specifically for hosts, InHouse offers host-only discounts on over 100,000+ products from host-favorite brands like CB2, West Elm and Public Goods. They also offer SmartLists – customized checklists for your property that help you source the perfect items to set up a new property.
We’re currently in the process of refreshing one of our vacation rentals, so we were already on the hunt for products to upgrade our guest experience. So far, InHouse has been a pretty huge time saver, and we really appreciate how much easier it is to shop and manage our deliveries from one website. If you’re a host looking to upgrade your guest experience, we definitely recommend checking them out.
(P.S. you can use our promo code “STRCOMM” for $25 off your first order)
With that in mind, here are our five favorite products we found on InHouse:
Public Goods is a favorite amenities brand of Airbnb and VRBO owners for a reason. This kit contains all of the essential components for a great shower, including shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. All are formulated with natural ingredients and come in refillable containers.
Just like we aim for sustainability in our amenities, quality and durability are key for us when it comes to furniture. We like Zuo for modern-looking amenities that fit our budget, without compromising on durability. We’ve found that our Airbnb guests who work remote opt to stay longer and they typically are more consistent year-round bookers. That helps us fill off-season gaps, so it’s important that our listing really appeals to them.
We know from experience how important it is to keep the neighbors on your good side as a host, which is why we installed Minut sensors at each of our properties. It’s been a straightforward way to balance the comfort of our guests with the peace of mind our neighbors
Never underestimate the power of a great cup of coffee to kickstart your guests’ day. We recently stayed at an amazing Airbnb in Washington that had the Fellow Stagg EKG kettle, and let me tell you, it took my morning coffee ritual to the next level. I was so blown away by how it elevated the whole guest experience that I went and bought one for my own rental.
We’ve been trying out this Priority L Train Bike from InHouse as a rental offering to our guests and so far it’s been pretty wonderful as an additional income source to supplement our booking revenue. We integrated the rental into our guest experience via InHouse’s digital home guide Frontdesk. The setup is straightforward, and we expect it to pay for itself in about three months with about half of our guests opting in.
