How to Book a Luxury Vacation Rental – Concierge Included

How to Book a Luxury Vacation Rental – Concierge Included

Crave 5-star hotel amenities with the privacy and comforts of a luxury vacation home rental? Discover the best of both worlds. When it comes to weighing the two, StayMarquis says you actually can have it all.

Swap confined hotel rooms for private rentals? Beware becoming the in-house concierge, doing all the planning yourself. Wish you had a local to secure transportation, stock the kitchen, arrange housekeeping, excursions, and more? Your wish is granted.

Your best bet is to book on a rental platform that's niche to your destination. 


StayMarquis, a leader in the Hamptons, started in 2014 with a mission: to deliver remarkable stays, amenity-rich experiences, and 24/7 support from local "hospitalitarians." With over 750 properties on the platform across just 2 regions in the Northeast – guests can rest assured that their dedicated "hospitalitarian" knows everything, about everything, both in and out of the home. And if, after a stay you're inclined to buy a vacation home, they've launched a brokerage and advisory division leveraging their technology & data to help buyers make sound rental investments. 


It's StayMarquis' hyper-local approach to growth and hospitality that has been paramount to its success in servicing the most discerning guests and homeowners. Our goal: Immersion in fitting markets, becoming a staple within communities, rather than expanding nationwide. "The Hamptons, Shelter Island, North Fork, Litchfield, Berkshires, and Hudson Valley," says Bryan Fedner, co-founder & CEO of StayMarquis.

Rental management:

When it comes to rental management, StayMarquis goes above and beyond, defining different programs for their homeowners to be as hands-on or off as they'd like. Their Elite Program allows owners to stay in communication with renters. The Marquis & Luxe programs provide owners & their guests with a dedicated StayMarquis reservation manager and "hospitalitarian", handling all communications, guest services and experiences before, during and post-stay.

When opting to rent a Marquis or Luxe property, guests receive hotel-like amenities, and then some. Luxury brand partners provide seasonal necessities: shampoos, linens, local wine, and luxury skincare. Elevate your stay.


Pre-select amenities: kitchen stocking, games, pool floats, beach chairs, chef, fitness instructor, or massage therapist. Unwind worry-free.


Their service coordinators, dubbed "hospitalitarians", also know how to lean into a themed getaway. Partnering with the best local businesses in each region, they've developed packages tailored to various occasions. For a corporate retreat, they will build the perfect balance of work and play, arranging pickleball, a boat day, and an oyster shucking class. If you're craving a deeper sense of relaxation, their Wellness Retreat will do the trick with options like meditation healing, massages, and an in-home natural food chef. For a girls weekend or bachelorette, step aboard a private yacht and end the day with a VIP table at a local hotspot. For a couples getaway, the team will design an experience that leaves lasting memories, like a private helicopter tour and intimate dining experience. 

So go ahead, and have it all this summer with StayMarquis. The Company lives its mission in making every stay remarkable – and encourages us that it is in fact possible to rent without reservation, whether you're a guest or homeowner.
