About Us

Helen Thomas

I have been in the travel industry for most of my working life. I have a degree in Hospitality Management and have worked in several 5 star London hotels, including Claridges. I took over the business from my father in 2006 and have adapted the company to specialise in large luxury houses throughout the U.K.

I enjoy cookery, art, walking Dexter and I am currently studying part-time for a Masters Degree in Photography

Annie Bennet

I have worked for Holiday Homes Group for 20 years building an intimate knowledge of our properties, owners and clientele. Helen and I try and give that extra personal contact which holiday makers are looking for.

I have three grown children, one grandchild and spend as much time as I am able with them. I work as a volunteer admin/cook and bottle washer with a local Scout Group who keep me on my toes. I love gardening and making celebration cakes. My favourite cake has to have been Helen’s dog Dexter!

Silvia Loi

I am the latest addition to the team and I have been working for House Parties since October 2017.

Previously I have been working as a project coordinator and an assessor for an entertainment company.

I have 3 children and I speak several languages and I’m a keen Italian cook. I love reading, watching Netflix and I am a groovy salsa dancer!


Dexter often accompanies Helen when she visits new properties. He enjoys walks in the park, barking at the postman and lazying on his bed. His favourite foods (when he is allowed) are strong cheddar cheese, sausages and roast chicken with lots of gravy.
