Air beds/mattresses

Postby Kookla » Sat Feb 15, 2020 10:21 am

I was wondering if anybody has experience of buying ‘blow-up’ air beds in the Hania area. Sadly we sold all of our furniture when we had to move a few years’ ago. (and then moved back!) I now have guests arriving and nothing for them to sleep on!
It might be that proper beds will be cheaper. I thought that the teenagers would be able to use air beds.
Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

Hiya! We had the same issue as you as we have extra people coming for Easter this year. I feel sure that they must be available here but in the end we bought a blow up bed and camp bed from Amazon. Amazon do an excellent quality king size (extra wide single) camp bed with mattress.
Someday is now : )

Jumbo sell them. Good enough quality and not too dear.

I bought a single from Jumbo a couple years ago for camping at the Matala festival. Fine for a couple of nights in a tent but no more, then again i'm not a teenager...nowhere near. Quite narrow so not much room to turn over and best with a pillow. Mine uses a footpump to blow up although I have a electric pump that runs of the car cigarette lighter, much easier. Friends bought a double from Jumbo with integrated electric pump that runs off a house power socket although for camping they used a (my) electric pump from car lighter socket. Obviously the integrated one is a bit more expensive.

Comfort wise, well, they are blow up mattresses.

Even if it's for a couple I would suggest two singles rather than a double. Blow up mattresses transfer movement far more efficiently than a normal mattress. If one person turns over the other gets thrown out of bed if it's a double.

Well my goodness! Aren’t you all wonderful. Great ideas and comments, thank you. Will check out Amazon and Jumbo. Have a husband and a foot pump! Also I agree with two singles rather than a double. They are hardy youngsters used to camping and the great outdoors... might even put them on the roof terrace outside to enjoy the stars lol. Thank you.

If that comment is serious I would get a treated mosquito net as well, assuming you can rig up something to hang it from or stand alone ones are available.

Warwick - semi serious. Husband thinks they would enjoy it, as the stars really are spectacular. Good point re mossie protection though, if they do. I am more worried that rats would chew a hole in beds and that the boys would disappear upwards in a spiral swirl like in a cartoon, never to be seen again!
I think the dining room floor would be a safer option.

I also always try to look for positives in life.
