Gay Homestays Hosts Of The Year 2013 - Winner


Gay Homestays is delighted to crown Rafael and Marcos as our Hosts of the Year 2013.  Both Rafael and Marcos are graphic designers; they originate from Brazil, but now live and work in London. Together they rent out the guest room in their two-bedroom apartment, which is in an ideal location, a 15 minute walk from Tower Bridge and just a two minute walk from the nearest tube station.

Their beautiful flat is on the building’s 15th floor, giving amazing views of London’s skyline and many famous landmarks, and also has a balcony for you to look out over. There is a large kitchen area, where they provide a delicious continental breakfast every morning, and the living room is spacious and homely. The light and airy guest room is well decorated and cosy with a comfortable double bed and comes with a mini fridge. Guests are also provided with a generous supply of fresh towels and a bathrobe.

Rafael and Marcos have been hosting with Gay Homestays since last year and have already proven to be a popular choice with guests, which they are very happy about. They really enjoy being hosts, offering knowledge and advice on what to do and where to go and say, “meeting new and interesting people is what really appeals to us the most”. They also list their room on a well known straight website, but tell us that they much prefer our site because most of their bookings come through us and they have more in common with our guests, as they are all gay.

We are pleased to award Rafael and Marcos the prize of a flat-screen TV in order to help further enhance their guest’s experience and they are thrilled that they have won. “We are honoured to be named Hosts of the Year and would like to thank our guests for their fantastic reviews! The TV has been a great and much-needed addition to the room and we are very thankful for it,” Here they are pictured with their prize, a Bush 19 inch TV. Congratulations on your win guys and good luck for the future!
