It depends on how long you'd want to stay there. In the short term, you need a spacecraft with supplies of power, cooling, food, water, air, and a way to dispose of wastes. In the long term or permanent base you still need all these things, and you need ways of recycling air, water, and carbon and ways to resupply what cannot be recycled.
