We have been caravan owners at Haven Cala Gran for over 4 years now and love it well most of the time.
Why have we set the caravans up as Autism Friendly ?
Is one of the most asked questions we get. I have a son Lucas who is 11 and has autism and the reason we set the caravans up like they are. There isn't really anything set up specifically for families that have children with autism and everyone we have spoke to don't know of any other caravans set up like ours. We where the first caravans in the UK set up especially for families that have children with autism and allowing families to get away with out all the stress & anxiety. And just to allow families to actually be able to go away and have a family holiday without worrying whether will it be suitable for there son or daughter. This year alone we have had 6 lots of families where it was there first ever holiday away and booked again straight away where they got back home as there child loved it that much.
What makes the caravan Autism Friendly ? Is another questions we get asked a lot
We thought long and hard of what we would want in the caravan if we where looking at going on holiday and Lucas had a big say into what he would like in the caravan to make it feel more homely and relaxing. Of course the first thing he picked was a games console with Minecraft on it no surprise there.
We also installed LED Sensory Lighting, sensory play zones, interactive lighting, themed bedrooms, bubble tubes, lava tubes, sensory boxes, arts and crafts boxes, games consoles & games in the children's bedrooms and living room, Ikea egg chairs, activity tubes, Lego Play Zones, themed bathrooms with waterproof colour changing lighting, full SKY TV, access to internet*, we have also made quiet zones under the bunk beds with its own sensory lighting, tv/DVD player and sound system.
The Themed Bedrooms are
New Caravan - Dr Seuss & Disney Pixar
Other Caravan - Disney/Olaf & Mario Bros
But we also thought of other family members and things we could put in the caravan to make there holiday in our caravans just as special so included things like popcorn machine, hot dog machine, Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine, board games, themed double bedroom, outdoor games, gas bbq, outdoor rattan seating, the list could go on and on. Also included in the caravans are high chairs and travel cots.
We also listen to guests feedback and starting in 2019 holidays bedding and towels will be included in all holidays and cleaned by our cleaner when guests check out giving them one less thing to worry about.
In the new caravan we are also getting a unlimited internet box which can be added to the booking for £10 per break is pay as you go in the other caravan.
In both caravans we also included for FREE. Pods for the Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine, tea bags, sugar, sauces, Condiments, toilet rolls, kernals/oil for the popcorn machines.
Do we only rent out to families that have children with autism?
No we rent out to almost anyone apart from groups of young people, stag and hen parties for obvious reasons because of how the caravans are set up.
Do we allow pets?
Yes we do in both our caravans as long as they are fully trained and we are told about it when guests book. Maximum of 2 pets allowed.
About the caravans
All the caravans are modern 8 berth 3 bedrooms, fully double glazed, heating in all the rooms, 2 bathrooms.
Our monthly payment plans
We allow guests to pay monthly to make the holidays more affordable with 2019 Holidays we allow upto 20 months to pay for the holiday. All holidays need to be fully paid 5 weeks before guests are due to go on holiday.
We don't have many rules apart from under no circumstances is there to be any smoking in any of the caravans. All we expect is guests to try and leave the caravan how it was when they arrived.
