Luxury Retreats explores gay friendly travel


Luxury Retreats, a leader in the luxury villa rental industry, recently announced the creation of a website dedicated to private rental homes in gay- and lesbian-friendly travel destinations.

Out Villas ( by Luxury Retreats consolidates vacation rentals in all the world’s best gay-friendly locations, from the Caribbean to Europe.

“Short-term villa rentals are a great option for gay and lesbian travelers because they’re very private and appeal to discriminating tastes,” said Ben Tuff, Luxury Retreats’ director of marketing. “We’re happy to cater directly to this savvy group of travelers.”

Almost 800 villas are featured on Out Villas, spread across 10 major regions including Greece, Mexico, Spain, France and the Caribbean. Out Villas does the work for potential travelers by focusing solely on those destinations where attitudes are tolerant and accepting of the gay and lesbian community.

“We would never send our guests anywhere that they can’t enjoy a completely carefree vacation,” said Tuff, “so Out Villas is a place to start without those concerns.”

For easy browsing, the website breaks down villas by region and then sub-regions, such as individual Caribbean islands. Each villa featured has its own page with detailed information about bedroom layouts, pricing, staffing, plus many large photos to help travelers make informed choices. Villas are available in wide price points.

All guests of Out Villas by Luxury Retreats receive complimentary guest services from villa provisioning – have your favorite bottle of wine there when you arrive – to car rentals, restaurant reservations, activities and tours.
