About Gay-ville

Gay-ville was established in 2011 out of the recognition that there's a rising need for gay-friendly vacation rentals. Gay-ville is a gay-owned and operated community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book gay-friendly accommodations around the world whether it be a vacation home, apartment, a room or even a sofa.

At Gay-ville we understand the unique travel needs of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community. We aim to fulfill this by offering the best accommodation at great value and providing current travel info tailored to gay travelers. This includes gay area, city information, gay events, and much more. Gay-ville is open to gay-friendly people who want to rent their property to members of the LGBT community.

Gay-ville, a better way to travel

Hotels are passé. People want a unique travel experience and they want value. The Internet enables members of a community to rent their properties to travelers anywhere in the world. Now with Gay-ville a better way to go on vacation is available.

Staying in a Gay-ville apartment gives you more room to relax than in the limited space found even in the best hotels.

Vacation rentals are the best choice for an authentic experience in great locations. Most reasonably priced hotels are far from the centre of major cities. Gay-ville apartments are usually in the center of a town and in the gay area. You just walk through the door and you are in the middle of everything - cafés, restaurants, shops and bars. With a vacation rental you get more value for your money. With fully equipped kitchens you can make your own meals and snacks at a fraction of the cost of restaurants. With multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, they are often the perfect solution when going with a group of friends or family.

Rent out your space

If you are planning on a vacation, or simply have a free space, Gay-ville makes it easier for you to utilize your space and rent it out while you are away. It is an easy way to make extra cash.

Here are a few examples how:

  • Get to know your guest. Using our Facebook Connect you can see mutual friends that you have with the guest (it is a very small big gay community...).
  • Our review section helps you choose your guest wisely.
  • You are guaranteed that your guest is gay or gay-friendly. It's always much more easier to host someone with a similar profile to your own.
  • Booking isn't final until you approve the reservation - you can choose your guest and you are free to decline.

What makes us different?

  • We have an understanding of the gay traveler's needs and preferences, as we focus on preferred gay destinations.
  • We map the gay area in major gay destinations and link it to the apartment search engine.
  • By using our event calendar and City Info section on all the major modern gay-friendly cities in the world you will always know where to go and what to do.
  • We guarantee gay-friendly service providers and hosts to make your vacation as pleasant as possible.
  • A gay host can give you tips and recommendations about the city. Who knows maybe you will even find a new friend.
  • Sexual orientation is not an issue and you can feel at home even when you're away from home.
