Maui Campervan Holiday at NRMA Ocean Beach Resort & Holiday Park: Review

I have always been a campervan kinda gal. The idea of traipsing around in a compact, cosy vehicle and eating, sleeping and showering in it appeals to the all-in-one little kid in me.

I was given the opportunity to be in possession of the mighty, yet sleek Maui beast called the 'Maui Platinum Beach'. Here she is!

Here is a short and very informative video of the Maui campervan:

Before I brag you all about my mini trip and all the fun my family and I had and show off our pics, I am thrilled to share a Maui deal for keen travellers in conjunction with Destination NSW:

"As part of encouraging Australians to see more of NSW, Maui is offering up to 25% off bookings for travellers exploring the State between 3 March – 30 June 2014."

That's a pretty awesome deal!

Destination NSW guided our trip by directing us to the www.visitnsw.com website and the folks there suggested some routes for us, to make the most of of the wonderful view from the Maui campervan en route to our destination of Umina, on the Central Coast, situated south of Gosford, and 88kms from Sydney.

We took our Maui along the 'Legendary Pacific Coast' - see http://www.visitnsw.com/things-to-do/drives-and-road-trips/the-legendary-pacific-coast for useful links and maps.

Okay, so some more about the Maui baby we had at our disposal for a glorious Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the Maui brand.

Maui is one of Australia and New Zealand’s most experienced and trusted luxury campervan brands, with 25 years experience delivering five-star, luxury self-drive experiences. The Maui fleet includes three different custom-built vehicle models, sleeping two, four and six people. Its design aesthetic allows for travellers to live in style and comfort while packing until their hearts content, with space for fishing rods, golf clubs and other holiday essentials.
Maui vehicles are designed for apartment living on the road; all vehicles are quality European Mercedes or Volkswagen models. Featuring warm, neutral tones, leather couches, luxury bed and towel linens, china crockery, wine glasses and other luxury kitchen items, Maui travellers can feel like they are in a mini home with the apartment style cooking equipment, BBQ, LCD screen and DVD player. And guess what? We really did feel like it was our tiny home for a few days. It was cosy and comfy and so very functional.

Nothing is too much trouble when travelling with Maui; customers have access to the conveniences of iPod connectivity, GPS navigators, LPG bottle swaps and an exclusive valet service. The valet service provides customers the option to exchange their linen for a fresh supply at any of the ten branches. Those travelling 21+ days are invited to drop into any of the branches to have their campervan ‘spring cleaned’ inside and out at any stage of their journey.

Maui is perfect for luxury holidays to wineries, golfing getaways, coastal road trips and a great way to travel in comfort. This allows travellers to taste and enjoy Australia’s regional food and wine, without having to rush home.

We picked up our Maui vehicle from the Sydney depot at Mascot (not far from Sydney airport), and you can start your Maui journey from any of their depots around Australia; in fact, Maui vehicles are available nationwide from nine locations in Australia and three locations in New Zealand.

Okay… so, our trip!

I will say that from beginning that while I was enamoured with the idea of a camper van trip, I'd never travelled in one.

I'd also never experienced a holiday park quite like the Ocean Beach Holiday Park. It is hugely popular with travellers and I soon found out why; it has ALL you could want for a great mini break. Amenities close by, wherever you are parked in the holiday park. Brand new kitchen and toilet facilities. Super friendly staff. Loads of activities for the kids. A pool that looks like it belongs in a quality beach resort. Jumping pillows for the kids and a water park. LOTS! And Umina beach is just a stroll away. See more here and check out the fab photos:

The best thing of all is that Maui is open every single day of the year! So, if you feel like you want to escape TODAY, you can! Call ahead to make sure your Maui vehicle is available for you, grab a map, and go, go, GO! One of the best travel experiences I've ever had, and one I will be replicating again very soon. My kids and husband and I loved every single part of it.
