If you’re a host, you know vacation rental cleaning is ultra important because it can lead to bad reviews if you don’t do a great job. Because of the threat of bad reviews, most short-term vacation rental hosts give checklists to their cleaners to ensure quality.

Vacation Rental Cleaning Checklist for Boat

So, when one of our friends started renting out a boat, we were curious what his vacation rental cleaning checklist looked like. See for yourself:

Vacation Rental Cleaning Checklist for Boat

1) Make the bed with new sheets

2) Charge the battery if low

3) Wipe down surfaces like table with antiseptic wipes

4) Check and clean the cooler for food or spills

5) Take out the trash put new trash bag in can

6) Leave four bottles of water

7) Leave soap and shampoo out for next guest

8) Check bathroom cards are not missing

9) Vacuum the floors, carpet, and cushions
