If there’s one thing we’ve learned managing vacation rentals over the years, is that there’s no such thing as “too safe.” These days, traveling families are expecting more amenities then when Airbnb was a novel idea and the industry is adapting. Before, virtually any home that wasn’t a death-trap could be listed as “child-friendly.”

Now, with the ability to customize your Airbnb listing with items like “toddler utensils” and “Baby bathtub,” managers are scrambling to figure out what to provide to capture this market. But what is necessary and what’s overkill? Vacayo has put together a list of what we deem the essential items for a child-friendly home:

1. Baby-gates for high stairs
