A little about us.....

Hello, and welcome to Casa de Orange. After several years in the corporate world we decided it was time to follow our passions and make our dream of running our own bed and breakfast a reality. Lisa is originally from Canada and has worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years. Simon is originally from the UK and was a management accountant with a large accounting firm for 26 years.

 

We met in 2009 while living in Dubai and married in 2015. We share a love of hospitality, travelling and cooking and a bed and breakfast or small hotel seemed like the perfect way to combine our passions.

 

In 2017 we purchased Casa de Orange. We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it and hope you feel the same way during your stay with us. We look forward to being your hosts and creating a memorable experience for you.

Car hire tips (from the official Malaga Airport & Visitors guide)
  • Remember to bring a driving license for each individual you wish to have as a named driver.

  • Car hire at Malaga is very competitive. It is worth shopping around to see what deals are being offered as you can often make some great savings.

  • Book extras such as child seats, which are a legal requirement in Spain, especially during the summer months when supplies can run out.

  • Air-conditioning is a “MUST”. Make sure your hire car comes with it, especially during the months of July to September.

  • Take your time to check the car for any scratches or damage and report these to your agent.

  • Think about taking out the extra insurance to reduce your Liability to zero.

Taxis & Transfers

If you want to take a taxi from the airport there is a taxi stand outside of arrivals.
If you prefer to book your car transfer in advance, with a meet and greet service at the arrivals lounge, Malaga Airport Taxi offer a service with prices similar to those of a regular taxi.
