The Principal 

Hi there, my name is Erica and I am the Principal of Happy Homes.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself and Happy Homes.

I first came to this country from Germany as an au-pair in the early 1960's. London at this time was regarded as the 'coolest and most stylish city' on the planet, very much as it is regarded today, except of course, it has become even more cosmopolitan! I soon fell in love with the city and made it my home for the past 40 years.

And, I am not the only one. There are over 9 million people living in London and twice as many visitors over the high season. London is host to tourists from all over the world and oh yes, they all need a place to stay! I do my best to place some of them...

Happy Homes is a family run agency and we take great care in placing our visitors with English host families that love to share their home with foreign guests. Many of the families on our extensive database I have known personally for many years and we are fortunate to use them regularly as they are in constant demand.

I can assure you that we, at Happy Homes, are fully committed to ensuring your stay is a pleasant one and you are entirely satisfied with your host family. At Happy Homes, we want you to be happy!

I do hope you enjoy your stay in London as much as I did all those years ago. You never know, you may also wish to make London your home one day!
