About Us


Haven on Earth is all about you! A family run business that has always been focussed on personal service that is tailored to each individual; with villas as unique as you are! Our extensive knowledge of the local areas and the villas that we rent means that we can match you with the perfect villa and destination. We want to take the stress out of finding your villa rental so that you can concentrate on getting your holiday started; whether that’s from the time you wake up on departure day; on entering duty free; ordering a cheeky G&T on the plane; or not until you have unpacked, freshened up and are sat by the pool!

Where it all began

Haven on Earth, had its humble beginnings in 2001, when it was founded by Sheila Hipperson-Yelland and known as Spanish Haven. Sheila's journey into the world of villa rentals began with a personal love affair with Begur in the Costa Brava, Spain. Captivated by the beauty of the region, she made the life-changing decision to purchase a villa in this idyllic location. Little did she know that this decision would be the start of a remarkable venture.

Spanish Haven emerged as a natural extension of Sheila's passion for Begur and her desire to share the magic of this destination with others. In no time, friends and fellow property owners were entrusting their villa rentals to the company, recognising Sheila's innate talent for hospitality and customer satisfaction.

Sheila's vision was born out of a personal frustration. She had experienced numerous villa rentals with her own family, each falling short of her expectations. Determined to fill the void she had encountered, she set out to create a villa rental company that truly understood the needs and desires of travelers like herself.

In 2003, Sheila's son, George Hipperson, joined the company, and together, they embarked on a mission to expand their services and destinations. Spanish Haven evolved into Haven on Earth, a brand that reflects their commitment to providing an unparalleled travel experience. Under George's guidance, the company grew, offering an array of handpicked destinations to cater to a diverse range of travellers, each with a unique desire to explore the world in style and comfort.

In 2008, a new chapter began for Haven on Earth when Daniela, George's wife, joined the team. Her addition brought with it a fresh wave of enthusiasm, a profound love for travel, an unwavering commitment to attention to detail, and an unyielding dedication to exceptional customer service. Today, Haven on Earth is proudly led by the dynamic husband and wife team, George and Daniela.
George, with his years of experience in the travel industry, and Daniela, with her innate passion for exploring the world, have combined their strengths to create a unique travel experience for their valued customers. With a shared vision, they constantly strive to raise the bar and provide the very best for all holidaymakers who entrust their dreams and adventures to Haven on Earth.
