booking accommodation for a gay couple

I am researching some apartments to stay at in dubrovnik and my only concern is that we are a gay couple - are we likely to have any problems with accommodation because of this? I don't want to book an apartment now and when I get to it in August, find that the owner turns me and my partner away because we are gay! Maybe I am being a little cautious, but I've read Croatia is quite a consevative society.

i think that Croatia is conservative, but how open are you...i think the fellows above us were gay, but never really knew. Why not tell the owners and see how they feel. Best to know.

We don't look particularly gay if that makes sense, and a lot of people have no idea I am until I tell them. I guess with apartments though, most have double beds, so it will be obvious that we are a couple to the owner when we arrive.

Hi adam

I think that the usual advice on this forum is that yes,Croatia is conservative but if you don't behave like a couple in public,you shouldn't have any problems.I did a quick google using- gay friendly accomodation croatia & it through up quite alot of sites that should be useful in answering your queries

If you book an apartment in or close to the Old Town I really don't think you will have a problem. Lots of gay couples travel to Dubrovnik (and live in Dubrovnik) so I am sure apartment owners are used to it by now. Without stereotyping, I think you might be more likely to find an open-minded owner if you book an apartment that looks like it is owned by a young or young-at-heart person (something modern and stylish). I would certainly avoid a sobe that is inside the home of a local family.
