Converted VW T5 Camper Van finished & equipped to a simple, but high quality standard. Contains everything you need to explore and adventure your way across the beautiful island of La Palma! Experience the true freedom & excitement of living on the road. Live free & happy...
I will assist you with all the very best free-camping spots around the island so you can get off the beaten track. Sleep under the stars, watch the sunset from bed, wake up to glorious sunrises - the choice is yours!

The space

La Palma is a truly beautiful & unique island, best seen as an independent traveller. There are many incredible hiking trails to explore - with most easily accessed with your own transport. La Palma is also blessed with some wonderful and wild beaches - many of which are ideal for free-camping. I'll point you in the right direction! I can also advise you on the best places to stop off & check out - as well as the best places to eat & drink. Local knowledge!
The van is a 2004 VW T5 - converted to a simple, but high standard & equipped with everything you need for a few days & nights on the road... From the outside the van is a simple white panel van. Blends in easily when free-camping!
The front cab is standard LHD layout with a large bench seat + plenty of space & cubby-holes for all your things. Up front there's a top-quality Alpine stereo system with Bluetooth, Radio, CD, USB & iPhone link up. The rear cab has been completed stripped out, fully insulated and carpeted to make it extra-cosy. There's a timber & plywood bed platform with loads of storage underneath & a full sized comfy IKEA double mattress on top. 4x 12v LED Lights & a double USB charging point (powered by a 2nd leisure battery) are close by. Fresh & clean bedding, bed linen, blankets and towels are provided.
The basic camping kitchen consists of a single burner gas stove + 10kg Gas Bottle, 12v coolbox (also powered by the 2nd leisure battery, meaning it can run all the time!), 25L Water Tank, a selection of crockery, cutlery, pots & pans. Everything you'll need to cook a simple meal or make a cup of coffee!
Underneath the bed, there's plenty of space for your luggage. There's also a tub with a Mosquito Net (for open air sleeping), 20L Solar Shower, Jump Leads (in case you break down) + Fire Extinguisher.
There's also a little box of tricks with everything you might need while out on the road (pens, pencils, torch, first aid kit, playing cards, etc) as well as small collection of maps & guidebooks.

Guest access

The entire van is yours for the duration of your stay! Please note - there is a strict policy of ONLY TWO GUESTS per stay. There simply isn't enough room to accommodate more than two people safely or comfortably... Please ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING IN THE VEHICLE!!
The van comes with a full tank of diesel fuel which is expected to be refilled back to full on the vehicles return. You will be given a single key to the vehicle on arrival. You are expected to keep the vehicle locked at all times when parked up for your own security. The van is a registered Canarian vehicle, fully road legal (having an up-to-date ITV) and is fully insured. You will be covered by the insurance as long as your are over 25, have held a driving license for a minimum of 3 years and you complete a short disclaimer form (similar to hiring a car) when you arrive to collect the van.
Please note: The van is NOT a 4x4 and is ONLY suitable for driving on tarmac roads - so please, no crazy off-road exploring!

Interaction with guests

I am happy to be available for any & all enquiries during the time of your stay. After our first meeting to hand over the van, you will have all my contact details for anything as trivial as choosing the best place to eat, the smartest (and best) places to free-camp to what do do if something stops working in the van. No worries contacting me before & during your stay - I'm always available to help in any way I can!

Other things to note

AIRPORT PICK UP + DROP OFF @ Santa Cruz De La Palma Airport (SPC) are currently INCLUDED FREE OF CHARGE! Please contact me for further details...
As you are effectively hiring a vehicle as well as making a reservation for accommodation, I will insist on the following to complete your AirBnB reservation:
1. Photographic evidence that you are over the age of 25 when the reservation is due to commence.
2. Photographic evidence you have held a full driving license for a minimum of 3 years.
3. The completion of a short disclaimer form for insurance purposes on your arrival. This disclaimer form can be provided on request prior to you completing the reservation.
4. On handover, a €200 cash deposit will be left with me. The deposit covers any damages/losses to the contents of the vehicle or the interior/exterior of the vehicle during your stay. (This is in addition to the Airbnb Security Deposit of €500. Please note NO FUNDS are required for this - it is just extra insurance for me to cover any large damages/losses). The €200 cash deposit will be returned on the final hand back of the vehicle after full & satisfactory inspection. Should the interior/exterior of the van be returned in an unacceptably dirty condition, my right is reserved to retain up to €100 of the deposit to cover the additional cleaning/valeting costs.
PLEASE NOTE: Although the van is based on La Palma, it can be made available for use on the neighbouring Canary Islands of La Gomera, El Hierro & Tenerife for an additional charge. Airport/Ferry Terminal (SPC/TFN/TFS/Santa Cruz/Los Cristianos) handovers can also be arranged. Please contact me for further details...

Alistair is a very nice guy who gave us excellent tips on where to camp on La Palma. Therefore we found very nice camp sites with amazing sunsets. The camper was in good condition with a comfortable bed and excellent audio.

Our time with Als van was perfect. We didn't really want to give it back ;-) The work Al did on the van is very nicely done and the van is very clean. It contains everything you could probably need. Waking up in a cozy bed on a lonesome beach, every morning a different place is perfect to discover the island. Alistair is the perfect host. Communication was easy and always quickly, bevor and during our stay. Handover took place in locations that where easy for us to reach and finde. We do recomend the van and surely would want it again, if we come back to La Palma!

Alistair ist ein sehr freundlicher, aufgestellter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber (in allen Situationen). Er holte mich beim Flughafen persönlich ab und nahm sich viel Zeit, um mir Übernachtungstipps zu geben und mir alles zu erklären, was ich über das Auto wissen musste. Der VW-Transporter ist nicht mehr der jüngste, aber ich konnte mit ihm die steilsten Strassen zu den Stränden gut herunterfahren und wieder hinauf. Das eingebaute Bett ist gross und unter dem Bett hat es viel Stauraum für persönliche Sachen. Wer die Freiheit liebt und gerne flexibel unterwegs ist, muss die Insel unbedingt mit Alistairs Campervan erkunden!
