Our hosts love Happipad

“I’ve been a host with Happipad for a couple years now and have nothing but great things to say! I started with Happipad because I wanted to reach out to help students find a place, they can feel comfortable in and call home. Our current student is truly a part of our family.”

Paulette Facca

Host since 2019

“The whole idea of Happipad is a win both for the guest and the host. The selection methods, the security and safety, and your management of the program. I have learned how important building an operating agreement with my renter is.”


Host since 2019

“I was a bit hesitant when I first signed up, sharing your home with the unknown was scary . Happipad helped me through it. As it turned out we were both pretty pleased with our roomy and happipad!”
