About us


Home from Home, Portsmouth Ltd is a local business offering serviced apartments in Portsmouth and Southsea as well as cottages in the Isle of Wight, a garden apartment in Edinburgh and a villa in Cyprus.

It was set up in 2012 by Jane Wilson who has a business background with a focus on marketing. She has 3 teens, Charlie, the office dog, who often models for our photos, and tigger the cat.

Over the years has been joined by a team:

Nick Wilson (Husband) who keeps us insured and safe and manages any maintenance issues, when hes not running around the properties he likes to hang out in the gym.  

Emma, Office manager, joined in 2018 as Office Manager, from IBM project management makes sure we have all we need to make the office run smoothly. She has 2 children, likes to keep fit and cycle to work and a camper van for weekend escapes

Eibhlis Dixon joined us in 2019 as operations manager, she had previous experience running serviced accommodation and (fortunately) doesn’t like to sit still. After she has organised the check ins and parking, shes off to the apartments checking they are set up and ready, shopping for any supplies delivering the welcome baskets and can even turn her hand to a bit of maintenance! Eibhlis has 2 children and a cat and has recently moved house to Southsea. When shes not working, you might see her out on a run! 

Susie Nash joined us in 2022 as bookkeeper. Shes been helping us get all our ticks in the right boxes and ready for making tax digital! Susie has 2 grown up daughters that have flown the nest, but a couple of pooches to keep her company! 

Darren Sampson is our maintenance man, helping us with anything that needs fixing as well as organising our refurbs and decorating

Syliva Goater is our Gardener at St Helens House - usually there on Mondays and Fridays, making the gardens look lovely!

And of course our Cleaning team
