About Golightly
Our Mission

From day one, the mission of Golightly has been to bring a network of connected, like-minded women together and provide them with a safe and trusted place, to book their travel accommodations.

Our Purpose

Given the number of horror stories coming out of traditional home-sharing and short-term rental platforms, we saw that there was a need for a marketplace by women and for women, to ensure an added level of security, safety and quality missing in the industry.

Our Work

Founded in Austin in 2018 as a members-only private club and home-sharing network for professional women, Golightly helps women travel safely and love where they stay. With safe, secure, comfortable accommodations and all the luxuries of home, Golightly encourages you to leave life’s baggage behind and, go lightly. When you travel with us, wherever you go is home.
