A family business at your service, since 2006


That’s pretty simple really. HMR Holidays is owned and run by the Roche family. 

Irene & Howard had been holidaying in Moraira for years before they started this holiday rental business in 2006. They started with only a few properties and then grew steadily over the years. Their son, Iain, joined the business in 2012 following his move from the UK to Spain to assist with the continued growth.

In 2016, Irene and Howard took a well-deserved retirement from the business, leaving Iain and his partner Léonie in control.

HMR Holidays now operates as a web-based holiday rental company, with no physical office, but we’re still on hand to meet and greet all our guests and personally see to any issues that they might have.

We  choose to remain a small family business, carefully selecting our properties and providing the highest levels of care and support for our clients and owners alike. We want to create long term relationships with both our owners and guests. 

When we are not busy catering for client’s and owner’s needs, we enjoy the wonderful weather, beaches, and lifestyle the Costa Blanca provides.
