Can I become a Gay Homestays host?

Anyone can become a host provided they have space to rent out.  This could be a couch, spare bedroom, entire apartment, or holiday home. Whether your space is always vacant or is only available for certain days of the year, you can list your property on Gay Homestays and earn some extra cash.

We cater for the needs of the whole LGBTQ community and most of our hosts are lesbian or gay.  We also welcome gay-friendly hosts who can demonstrate a genuine commitment to the gay community.

What services should I provide for my guests?

Before your guest arrives, make sure your place is clean and tidy.  The minimum you should provide is a keys to the property, clean towels and linens.  You are responsible for managing your bookings so it's important to keep your availability calendar up to date, thus offering a professional pre-booking service.

On guest arrival be friendly and welcoming and perhaps offer a friendly gesture like making tea or coffee or placing a chocolate in their bedroom.  Little welcome treats go a long way to establishing a good rapport with your guest and creating a friendly atmosphere.


Before your guest arrives, make sure your place is clean and tidy, and you’ve provided your guest with clean towels and bedding. Remember too, little welcome treats can go a long way!

How do I make my listing interesting?

Try to present your space like a hotel brochure, making sure that the photos you add are clear and show the entire space, including bathroom and kitchen. It is important for prospective guests to see as much as possible of your space, even if you are only renting out one room.

Personalise your listing by adding information about yourself, including interests and hobbies so that guests, who are like-minded, can see they have chosen the right host for them.  By displaying a friendly photo of yourself guests can see the person who they are booking with and it also makes your listing appear more friendly and appealing.
