Faberge Home Rentals has identified a need in the vacation home rental market—homeowners who are looking to generate additional income by renting and vacationers looking to have a more intimate experience than staying at a hotel. Renting a 5+ bedroom home is often less expensive than renting a similar number of rooms at a resort, while providing its guests with privacy, uniqueness, and more amenities. Faberge is the link between these two groups of individuals seeking a mutually beneficial exchange.
We provide elite service to both parties. Homeowners want their property to be well taken care of and to generate revenue that covers maintenance fees and taxes, and provides a source of income. Guests want a vacationing experience that is superior to a traditional stay at a hotel and creates memories that will last a lifetime. As experts in our field, we are able to accomplish all of this and more.
We match guests with properties that meet or exceed their expectations for the vacation or experience that they have in mind.
We match homeowners with guests that their homes are best marketed towards, be it a group of adults, parents with kids, or a bride and groom looking for a wedding location that will start their marriage off right.
When everyone is happy, everyone wins. That is the goal of Faberge.
Thank you for choosing Faberge Home Rental services to help rent your property. We want memories to be made in vacation homes for both our customers and you, the owner. With every partnership, the owner’s requirements are our priority. There are many benefits to rent out your home instead of selling, including long-term profit and equity, tax write-offs, protection from the housing market, tax-free cash flow, and of course, having a vacation home when you want!
Management Services for Owners
Faberge will take the burden of the renting process out of your hands. Members of our team are committed to saving you a headache while you receive a flow of income and keep your property in good condition.

At Faberge, we focus on renting for all seasons, especially for New England and New York homes. For this reason, we provide complete maintenance, repair, cleaning, snow removal, pool and lawn services to all owners. We routinely inspect all furniture, appliances, electronics, and equipment to make sure guests have the best experience. If repairs are needed, or additional items are required for the property’s optimal performance, we consult with the owner for the best possible solution. Updates on the property, documented damage, addressed issues, and post-stay walk-through records are provided for the owner’s review after every stay.
Faberge’s guest management services include screening potential guests to ensure they meet the highest standards, scheduling bookings, managing cancellations, providing pre-stay walkthroughs, processing all reservations, and collecting security deposits. We also provide guests with rental policies, customized guidelines for individual homes, and offer a caretaker to show guests the property as well as provide immediate assistance. Our experience in the business has shown that guest relationship is key to encourage more bookings and repeat clients from those who respect your home while they stay.

We make sure your property is everything guests want and more to ensure repeat business and will submit 5-star reviews to attract new renters.
Because many of our homes are in vacation hotspots with the most popular attractions in the region, our team maintains a calendar of local events including festivals and activities.

Our goal is your complete satisfaction during your stay at our properties, we provide unparalleled customer service with a proven track record, and can assist in matching you with homes in locations that will meet or exceed the vacation experience you have in mind.
Faberge rental homes provide a better experience and are frequently less expensive than renting a similar number of rooms at a hotel or resort. Plus, you have significantly more privacy, the houses are unique, and the amenities such as pools and hot tubs are not shared among hundreds of guests—only those with whom you are vacationing.
The cornerstone of our service is communication—any time, day or night, and before, during, and after your stay—we are available by phone, email, or text message, and respond to your inquiries promptly. We have a cadre of experts that can quickly address any need, and maintain an extensive list of contacts to recommend for any additional services you may request.
We offer a wide range of vacation homes that can accommodate groups of various sizes: a single family, several families looking to vacation together, a large family reunion, dozens of friends seeking to share an experience, or corporate retreats. We have properties that are close to the action, have absolute privacy, or both. We also can cater to those looking to host a wedding or an event, please see the Wedding and Event section for more details.
Before Your Stay

This allows you to plan your vacation schedule in advance, giving you peace of mind when you decide to book.
During Your Stay
Our homes are meticulously cleaned for each booking and maintained to the highest standards to ensure you will be able to use whatever features of the house your party desires. Every bed has fresh linens, every bathroom has towels and paper products. The kitchens are stocked with the things you will need to prepare meals, and every home comes with a manual describing the proper operation of all the amenities.
We are available any time to answer any questions you may have during your stay and will check into to ensure your stay is satisfactory.

After Your Stay
Once your vacation has sadly come to an end, we will remain in contact to ensure that you were completely satisfied. We welcome any and all recommendations and comments, and we take them seriously. If you forget an item and we find it, we will work to return it to you.

Marketing and Sales Strategy
Our expert team utilizes the best marketing tools to expose your property to the right customer base. We work with all major short-term rental platforms such as HomeAway, Airbnb, VRBO, and FlipKey to achieve first-class exposure. We optimize our property listings to be at the top of the search results in the best potential demographics. To capture a potential renter, we invest in professional photographers who know how to accentuate the advantages of your property with high-resolution photographs. Because customers heavily rely on first-person experiences to make rental decisions, we believe that referral incentives and word of mouth are a powerful tool in the market. We utilize a network of satisfied customers to refer potential guests. Lastly, our team maintains a calendar of local events such as festivals and sports activities in your property’s area and specifically markets your property to attendants of these events to increase occupancy rates.
By investing with us, you are backed by the Faberge experience that differentiates our company from others. Because renters inquire about 4-5 properties at one time, whoever responds to them first will close the sale over 85% of the time. We strive for a quick response time, always within the hour, which leads to a higher conversion rate of renting per inquiry. Our experience has shown that properties with numerous positive reviews generate three times more business overall. It’s simple, the more we strive for 100% positive reviews by creating the best experience for our guests and inquiring feedback on their stay, the more online traffic your property will create. Thus, more business will generate a steady increase in occupancy rates. Another pillar of successful properties comes from returning guests. Our superior customer service is the primary reason we have returned guests that enable us to generate a minimum of 15% increase in revenue from first to the second year of managing your property. Our team actively stays in touch with guest desires in each local market to identify pockets of unfilled demand. This allows us to custom tailor our offerings for your property in order to maximize occupancy rates and ROI. Furthermore, we continuously explore additional opportunities to improve your ROI by hosting special events, weddings, corporate retreats, and deep off-season discounting.

We provide VIP service for all weddings and events, including allowing the future bride and groom to visit the property with their wedding planner well ahead of your big day.
Due to the extra effort required to host a large group of people at the property, a fee in addition to the home rental will be assessed, the specific amount is dependent on the location and number of guests.
