Can I be a host?

Anyone can host as long as they have a spare couch, bed, room, apartment, or home. Whether your space is always vacant or will only be available for certain days of the year, you can list it on Gay-ville for a little extra cash.

Gay-ville is not only for gay people, but for all gay-friendly individuals. As most of Gay-ville's users are gay, it is important that our hosts are welcoming to the LGBTQ community.

The best part about being a host is that it is free and quite simple to list your place. The whole process can take less than 5 minutes and you will be on your way to meeting new people and making some extra cash.

What are my duties as a host?

The minimum duties are providing keys, clean towels and linens, and making sure that the apartment is clean when your guests arrive.

We recommend, however, taking a few extra minutes to make your space special for your guest. It can really make their entire vacation to your city a success and your place more attractive.

How do I add my space to Gay-ville?

  1. Register as a user.
  2. Click the Add My Space button, which will lead you to a page with basic instructions for listing your space. Remember, the more information that you add, the more attractive it will be to travelers.
  3. Make sure that the photos you add are clear and show the entire space, including bathroom and kitchen. It is important for the travelers to see as much as possible of the apartment even if you are only renting out a room.
  4. Update the calendar. Don't forget to mark available and unavailable dates. If you have different prices for different times you can update it here as well.
  5. You might consider adding information about yourself, including interests and a photo, so that guests feel more secure when renting your space from you.

What's next after I add my space?

Once your space is listed in the Village, it will be live on the site for users to browse and rent. Once a user has chosen your space, you will receive an e-mail to your private e-mail account notifying you that your space got a reservation request. Then you login to your account to check the details of the reservation and you can choose to accept or decline it.

After approving the reservation an automatic message will be delivered to you and the guest with full contact details so you can finalize all the details.

Make sure to login to Gay-ville occasionally to make sure that the price of your space is competitive compared to other spaces in your city and also to make sure that it is still active.

How do I get paid?

That depends on the cancellation policy you choose. If you choose Cash, payment will be made by the guest on day of arrival. If you choose any other policy, payment will be delivered to your PayPal account two days after check-in.

How does Gay-ville get paid?

We DO NOT charge anything from you, the host. You get exactly what you asked for, unless you choose a cancellation policy other than cash. Then we will charge 3% of the total amount to cover paypal transaction fee. We charge only the guests 10% fee. This is so we can continue to offer the best gay vacation sublets around the world to our users.
