The family of Hiisi Homies is the heart of Hiisi Homes & Hotels
Hiisi Homes is a family company from lake Hiidenvesi. Hiisi Homies believe Hiisi Homies always come first and the residents – homies – of Hiisi Homes come second. We believe taking care of Hiisi Homies will result in best possible care of all homies living at Hiisi Homes temporary homes. Hiisi Homies are professionals in customer service, sales and operations. During the first six years Hiisi Homes organizatoin has become a customer and sales service and expert organization. Hiisi Homies are like a platform enabling residents, property owners and home service providers to connect. Let’s get to know a bit better to our Hiisi Homies.
Hiisi Homes is founded by the men of the family – founding Homies Ari, Markus and Niklas. In the fall of 2017 these founding Homies made the decision to start rocking together while spending time at Kokkokallio rock by the lake Hiidenvesi.
The founding Homies of Hiisi Homes are extremely thankful for a great Hiisi family we’ve gathered working towards our common goal to enable homelike living for people away from home.
Voitto (Vode) Eriksson is in charge of the Nummela headquarters. Voitto ensures everyone visiting Hiisi Homes HQ will feel like a homie. Voitto enjoys walking around in the nature of Nummela and sometimes the pants tend to get a bit dirty resulting in unintended absence.
