Mike´s partner, Esmé, manages about 15 holiday homes in and around Moraira. She has a similar goal as Mike: to have satisfied guests that will return to Moraira because they had a perfect stay. In practice, the combination of their two businesses - Snakebite MTB and Matinina Holiday Rentals - works very well together.
For Mike and Esmé, Moraira offers the ideal combination of the thriving atmosphere, the restaurants and terraces of the coast and the proximity of the peace and quiet and nature of the hinterland. You won't find large scale tourist accommodations in Moraira, yet there is a vast choice of quality restaurants. The main MTB areas are between just four - eight kilometres away. The village of Moraira is lively all year round, from the busy summers to the more quiet winters.
