I'm a huge visual learner. That's why in many of my blogs I try to include a video on the subject matter. When I saw the video below, it made me want
a hot dog to go on vacation real bad. Hats off to whomever is over at misterb&b making these promotional videos.
Can we sign up for that exact vacation? Looks like a lot of fun!
So the concept seems like airbnb with a gay twist. What does misterb&b have to say for themselves? Form their webpage we find:
The misterb&b mission
4 years ago, Matthieu, misterb&b co-founder & CEO, booked a shared apartment in Barcelona with his partner. Upon arrival it was clear the host was not comfortable with gay men staying in her home. She even asked “are you going to sleep in the same bed?”
That experience made clear to him that a short-term rental service by and for gay men was needed to help provide not only a safe and comfortable experience but also one where gay men can connect and expand their sense of community.
misterb&b helps connect the global gay community by enabling gay men to earn money from their spare space and affordably travel the world feeling welcome anywhere they go.
We bring gay men together in real life experiences
We organize meet ups in cities around the world. A great opportunity to meet hosts and travelers. Join us for a drink and networking and connect with the global gay community!
The misterb&b vision
misterb&b envisions and helps create a world where gay men more easily
travel and interact in the “real world” fostering greater connections and
strengthening the global gay community. – misterbnb.com
My roommates have recently planned a trip to take a Mediterranean cruise and decided to compare airbnb and misterb&b for both Barcelona and Athens. What they did find was that many listings on mister were on air as well, but were cheaper on air. As always, let the buyer beware, always read the fine print, and shop around.
From their mission statement – We organize meet ups in cities around the world. A great opportunity to meet hosts and travelers. Join us for a drink and networking and connect with the global gay community! IF the price was the same, would you spend the little extra $$$ through misterb&b?
