In June 2019 former Airbnb Superhost, Robert Geller, launched FabStayz.com recognizing LGBT+Ally Hosts from Airbnb, Vrbo, Booking.com, TripAdvisor, and HomeAway with a mere 100 hosts. For the New Year FabStayz welcomed its 1,000th listing making it ‘the fastest growing LGBTQ accommodations platform.’ Aiming to remove the ‘coming out’ conundrum for LGBTQ travelers when booking accommodations through the 14+ million listings across major short-term rental platforms FabStayz.com brings an end to travelers having to message hosts ensuring they are ‘OK’ with hosting a gay couple or member of the transgender community. The platform’s FabHosts are recognized LGBT+Ally Hosts fostering welcoming safe spaces for all.
It was an Ontario, Canada beach front property that snagged the milestone of 1,000th listing. FabStayz beta v1.0 went live the last week of June, 2019 with its Fab100 Hosts, the first 100 to join the platform and now surpassed 1,000 listings. Featured listings include such unique properties as tiny homes in Portland, Oregon, a castle tower in France, a vintage RV on a hillside in Los Angeles, a restored firehouse in Chattanooga, TN, a houseboat in Portland, Oregon, home shares, beach front condos, and guest suites throughout the United States, Brazil, Canada, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Panama, Poland, and United Kingdom.
