Author: , July 7th, 2018

Highlands Resort

Highlands Resort offers a relaxing and peaceful gay and lesbian (straight-friendly) retreat – a jewel under the redwoods! Situated in the Russian River Wine Country just a short walk to the town of Guerneville, and just an hour and a half from San Francisco and the Bay Area, the Highlands offers private cabins, many with fireplaces, nestled in amongst the flowers and trees.

Relax in our secluded spa, take a swim, or enjoy a massage. You’ll be glad you pampered yourself here at our resort!

A Little History – The Highlands has been around since the early 1920’s, the current cabins date from the early 1940’s and are rustic (no phones, TV or radios). They are comfortably furnished and offer a glimpse back in time.

Liberty Garden Suites – Interview With Owners of Gay Accommodations in Dania Beach, Florida

Author: , September 8th, 2016

Liberty Garden Suites
Dania Beach, Florida

Gay owned and operated garden suites between Fort Lauderdale and Haulover Beach

By Steven Skelley and Thomas Routzong

liberty-garden-suites-smallLiberty Suites in Dania Beach has been our favorite south Florida gay resort for years. Now rebranded as Liberty Garden Suites with a new look and focus, we know it will be a success with gay travelers looking for gay owned and operated accommodations just minutes from Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport and the world-famous clothing-optional Haulover Beach.

We chatted with owners Joe Van Eron and Jack Zimmerman.

How would you describe Liberty Garden Suites in one sentence?

We are sure you will love our unique “Piece of Tropical Paradise” with attractive, immaculately clean, turn key, self-catering accommodations, and the company of our Gentlemen Guests.

What makes Liberty Garden Suites unique?

We are centrally located in Greater Fort Lauderdale in Historic Dania Beach, just 5 minutes south of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades, and are the closest Gay Accommodation to the World Famous Nude Beach at Haulover. Everyday conveniences of markets, restaurants & shops are within blocks, and we are short 15-20 minute drive to all Gay Greater Fort Lauderdale & Wilton Manors Nightlife and Attractions, as well as 5 Casinos including the new Casino @ Dania Beach..

The entire property is lushly landscaped and offers clothing optional sundeck, outdoor living room, patio dining with BBQ, Hot Tub/Spa, complimentary laundry facility and private off street parking. Each apartment is uniquely decorated, has private adjoining outdoor patio space, all with full kitchens and perfectly set up with all the amenities for vacation or longer term “Home Away from Home” Stays.

How would you describe your guests?

There are so few properties left that still offer a safe secure and private environment for exclusively Gay Vacation Rentals….our clients remain mostly mature, retired, well educated, successful and upscale Gay Men, singles and couples….which we believe there is a continued market, mostly with the aging boomers… as you know the Gay travel world has substantially changed, especially with the younger generations…the vacation rental market has exploded with Airbnb, Home Away, and the hundreds of other sites….and they no longer have to be so protective as we did in the early years and travel to large cites with Gay populations and Gay villages, and stay in safe Gay Guesthouses, and patronize strictly gay bars and restaurants….which I think is just wonderful…especially when I remember that I got my first apartment in Manhattan in January of 1969, 6 months before the Stonewall riots… “WE’VE COME A LONG WAY BABY !!”

Do you have any upcoming specials or packages?

Currently we are offering Summer Specials with rates as low as $79/Night and $495/Week….through September 30th …and as always during the off peak season we continue to accommodate longer term relocation stays as we remain an affordable and more pleasant alternative for those relocating in or out of the area, as well as extended business stays…and as Always, Pet Welcome.

FL: Planned Gay Resort in Wilton Manors Cancelled

Author: , December 21st, 2010

Wilton Manors Gay ResortWhat was marketed as a large, luxe gay resort will not be built in gay-friendly Wilton Manors, the developers have decided after months of resident protests about traffic, density and noise. Last week G Worldwide yanked its application, and a company representative said officials have soured on the city and will seek a site for the G Resort elsewhere in eastern Broward County.

Residents of east Wilton Manors who had organized angry protests and besieged commissioners for the past three months declared victory. “It was nothing personal,” said John Fiore, the openly gay former mayor who led the protest. “We were fighting for our neighborhood, our property values and our quality of life.”

“This truly was an outstanding example of home-grown citizen activism,” said Fiore, president of Save East Wilton Manors.

Details Released on Planned Gay Urban Resort in New York City

New Gay Resort in New York City

New York City Gay ResortAs Republicans in disguise no doubt skulk around the halls trying to recruit them, gays from all over the place will converge on a Travelodge-turned-Red-Cross-homeless-shelter on 42nd Street, which managing partner Ian Reisner and company are turning into “a gay urban resort” with the word “out” spelled by its windows.

You heard me! The façade of the building will have window configurations that say “OUT” with even more clarity than a male cheerleader on energy drinks. This is getting gayer than a Kylie Minogue concert in Fort Lauderdale on the first night of the U.S. Open.

The Out NYC complex—scheduled for next fall—will include the Axel Hotel (part of a world chain), stores, a café, a restaurant, a shiny new club called the xl Dance Bar, and everything else but a bookstore. The creators want to pack gays upon gays together for eating, drinking, shopping, and sleeping (together, if possible), but the place is also admittedly “hetero-friendly,” and that’s a good thing; otherwise, it might be totally illegal.
