A vacation rental inventory checklist ensures that all items left in their properties are still in there after the guest leaves and everything is in place for the next booking. Without this checklist it is impossible to offer a consistent high quality stay for every guest.

Your vacation rental inventory checklist should include the quantity, type of item and the condition on arrival and departure of each booking. Airbnb hosts with a single property can use a simple paper checklist or excel spreadsheet, whereas vacation rental managers will typically use a digital checklist.
