Description

We are a family of 5 who absolutely love camping and the outdoor life! We are so excited to share this love with you in the form of our 2014 VW ‘Hotel’ California which is now available for hire.
This is a genuine factory built 4 berth VW California camper, not just a converted panel van. This not only means that it is absolutely loaded with features, but also that it is a safe and solid travelling home that will ensure the comfort and safety of you and your travelling companions wherever your adventures take you!

Here’s just some of the features of our Hotel California!

• Electrically operated pop top roof containing a double bed (sleeps 2 adults comfortably)
• “Downstairs” double bed (also sleeps 2 adults!)
• Factory fitted blackout blinds on all windows
• Double glazed windows
• Programmable auxiliary night heater, to keep you cosy on those chillier evenings
• Heated front seats that swivel round to complete the living/dining area
• Fully functional kitchen area.
• Air conditioning not only in the driving area but also for the rear passengers
• A central electronic console to control the pop top roof, integrated refrigerator, auxiliary heater and display battery and water information.
• Wind out sun canopy
• Rear mounted bicycle carrier for 4 bikes included in the rental price!
• Onboard fresh and waste water tanks
• 12v and 240v electric connections
• 2 camping chairs (2 extras available on request, free of charge!)

Imagine relaxing outside on a beautiful sunny day underneath the wind-out canopy on the camping chairs that are provided with the van (cleverly concealed away in the back door) and your drink resting on the camping table (also cleverly packed away in the side door), for those not so sunny days there is an optional TV/DVD player and board games available.

Here’s what’s included within the van:

• Twin gas hob.
• Sink and washing up bowl, washing up liquid, antibacterial wipes, sponge, and tea-towels.
• Electric and a gas kettle, toaster.
• One double duvet and Two single duvets with pillows (On request)
• Mattress topper for downstairs pull out bed
• All cutlery, utensils, pans, and crockery.
• Bluetooth speaker with light and a duel USB 12v socket.
• Electric hook up cable/European adapter
• Levelling ramps (these ensure the van is level even when parked on a sloping pitch)
• EU Motoring kit (if required)
• Fire extinguisher, first aid kit.
• A welcome pack with coffee, tea, sugar, milk, biscuits, and a FREE BOTTLE OF FIZZ WITH EVERY RENTAL!!!!!

Secure off road parking available for your vehicle.

We would love you to take our van on a European voyage, therefore we offer full EU insurance and breakdown cover for an extra £12 per day including an EU motoring kit which contains everything required to travel on EU roads.

Comprehensive insurance is included free but you must accept accept insurance excess of £700 (payable by BAC'S) Excess is taken as a deposit before rental starts and returned at the end (same day) assuming van is returned on time, clean and with no damage or accidents.

Where possible, we also offer airport (Manchester or Liverpool) or train station (within 15miles) collections and drop off’s, but obviously we need to charge a little extra for this depending on the individual requests. Please get in touch if this might be something that would help you.

We generally have a policy of a minimum 2 day hire and 7 days during school holidays, but please get in touch if you have any other requests and we will be as flexible as possible to accommodate you!

You are very welcome to bring along one well behaved dog, however we will need to add on an extra £15 for cleaning the van afterwards.

Optional extras include:
• Driveaway Awning/Tent (£50 per hire)
• Thetford Porta Potti
• Freestanding toilet/ shower tent
• Electrically operated camping shower
• TV/DVD Player

Please feel free to enquire about any of the above or if there’s anything else you require that isn’t mentioned above.

We will do our best to provide you with everything you need for a dream camping adventure!

Firstly, my apology to Gemma for taking so long to write this. We had a superb week in their VW Cali, and it's really wet our appetite to try more. The van is immaculate and Gemma did a great job going through everything before we set off. Did almost 800 miles and the Cali never missed a beat, would heartily recommend to anyone contemplating trying the campervan experience. Well be back for more! The Crochers. October 2020
My husband and I had a fantastic holiday doing the North Coast 500 in the 'Hotel California'. Gemma did a great job of explaining how everything works in the van before we left, and while it took us a couple of nights to get the hang of all the little functions, we were soon pros! The van was extremely clean and easy to drive; there isn't loads of storage (but there's enough), so don't overpack. It is equipped with everything you need for a campervan holiday (including an essential bottle of bubbly, which was very much enjoyed), and Gemma has a load of optional extras as well. We took an awning for some extra space and a portable toilet to deal with Covid restrictions. The toilet did the job, and the awning was easy enough to put up. The van was a really great way to travel and it was a lot of fun. We would definitely recommend the Hotel California. September 2020
Excellent motorhome and friendly service. Highly recommend and would definitely use again! The van was of high quality, genuine VW California, instructions clearly given. Made our staycation all the more enjoyable! September 2020
