Perfect Couple for a Rookier

This couple were indeed Sunny and were charming, friendly hosts, especially for this first-timer on his first solo RV trip. He got me up on blocks and settled in their spacious driveway within minutes of arrival. We chatted a while and got acquainted and then they and I settled in for a quiet evening and a good night's sleep. I would stop again if I have the opportunity and would recommend them to other Sunny City travelers.

Super nice host in a very nice neighborhood

The host are super nice and invited us with joy and even took the time to chat with us and share their story, experience and suggestions.

Lovely stay

We had a lovely stay at Sunny City. The hosts were warm and friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. They were so generous to offer us electricity/water and citrus. We enjoyed walking in their safe and well maintained neighborhood. We also enjoyed listening to the birds in the morning. Couldn’t ask for a better host.

Best Stay and Host

I had a wonderful stay. They went out of their way to make me feel at home. They offered practical suggestions, help with my rig, and I left with a bag of succulant oranges from their garden. Best hosts ever!

Very nice stay

These hosts were most hospitable. I left with oranges, grapefruit and lemons that I picked from their trees. They even offered to let me stay another night. Everything I needed they offered to me. I would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your Safe Place

Very nice people, nice neighborhood, nice driveway. You need some ramps to keep you level, but I got 30AMP power which was great on this chilly Arizona night. Thank you

Sunshine-y Visit with Perfect Hosts

Staying on the bustermurphy's Sunny City host site was great. Friendly but low key, so they weren't intrusive. We even got grapefruit from their garden! Yum! The site is so easy to access; not far off major thoroughfares and has a nice wide street for maneuvering into the spot. Beautiful, well-kept property with charming decor and a view of palms, fruit trees and cacti out every window of our truck camper. Despite proximity to a major road, it was so quiet! The only word of advice for people staying here is bring extra leveling blocks for your streetside end. Also be prepared to leave with the knowledge that you are new friends with wonderful people!

Perfect sunny stay

Very nice two day stay in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. Driveway parking was just long enough for our 30 ft trailer and we parked our truck on the street. Enjoyed a cup of tea and conversation with Bustermurphy and shared our common travel experiences. They were very kind when we accidentally bumped their mailbox :-(

Great place near Spring Training Fields

Very nice couple in quite neighborhood. We stayed to hit a spring training game. Was within 3-4 miles of field. Some dog parks within a couple of miles and a Safeway you can walk to. All this and 30A power. I’m the morning they offered another nights stay if we wanted and gave us directions to the nearest free dump station. Would stay here again for sure. Thanks to the host.

Welcoming and Convenient

This lovely couple was waiting in front of their driveway as I rolled up. Kind and generous people, and they even offered an electric hookup, though I did't need it.


WaterDogs

February 2020

Easy parking and lots of grapefruit and oranges

Great hosts and a perfect driveway for the camper. Close to everything but out of the way just enough. 30A service was right there. If you prefer to use your own water hose, bring at least 30 feet. Very dog-friendly people and a good neighborhood for walking them.

Heart felt thanks for the help you did for us last Nov. Both of you were special. Our trip has been (sucessful and) safe travels.
We are now enjoying our first RV ralley here in florida. The toe injury has recovered nicely.
best wishes and thanks,

Wonderful stay with a delightful couple!

Our hosts were both so wonderful and welcoming as we enjoyed a lovely evening visit with delicious cake and coffee. Following were two nights on their driveway in a quiet and safe neighborhood. With their suggestions for things to do, our time with them was such a great introduction to the Phoenix area of Arizona! Thank you once again to our amazing hosts!!

Great Hosts and Neighborhood

This is a really nice neighborhood. It’s peaceful and gorgeous. I woke up every morning to birds singing and fruit trees right out my window. I would highly recommend stopping here if you’re going to be near Phoenix.

A Real Treat...

What a delightful and interesting couple Ivan and Bev are. They couldn't have been more friendly, hospitable and accommodating. Their location is in a residential community that was very quiet. I enjoyed our conversations. And, Bev also provided me with some tasty treats. They are terrific hosts. Thank you.

Great Hosts!

We had a wonderful stay with Bev and Ivan. They are a lovely, generous couple that graciously gave us a tour of the local area and invited us to join them for an outdoor community concert. They are in a convenient location near amenities but on a quiet street. An RV dump is available at a nearby RV dealer if needed. We look forward to meeting up with them again someday.

Sunny & Football!

We had a great stay! They greeted us and helped us to back in our trailer. We were immediately offered to hook up to 30amp and water. We were invited to use the back patio too! Great location close to shopping. Orangewood RV center is about a mile away with a free dump station. We stayed to attend the AZ Cardinals game and it took us about 15 minutes to get to the stadium. Overall a great stay!

Just like family

Very nice stay again! Actually Bev & Ivan had their neighbors over for dinner and and invited me as well! Lasagna, homemade turkey soup, dessert and Bev had fun cookie decorating kit for us to share. It was a nice time and we will stay in contact as I travel to Texas, Hawaii and hopefully back to Phoenix in March, God willing. 😊🙏❤️

Sunny Stay

We enjoyed our stay at Sunny City, as well as our conversations with Bev and Ivan. They have a little haven off the beaten path with hummingbirds flitting around... a great place to park for a couple of nights. Thanks for letting us stay, and perhaps we’ll see you again!

Great hosts, wonderful overnight!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these folks and "borrowing" their driveway for an overnight. They immediately offered a power hook up which was kind, but we declined as we have a lot of solar that works great in the Phoenix area! They are a very interesting couple and they have all kinds of hobbies that are fascinating. We had a good time visiting and having coffee with them later in the evening. Couldn't ask for nicer folks to meet. Especially as this was our first Boondockers Welcome experience.

Wonderful hosts

This was our first Boondocker's experience & we were delightfully surprised at what a great experience it was. Our hosts were very helpful in seeing that we had water, power & leveling but even more than that, they were the nicest, most interesting folks you could find. They are very experienced travelers & lovers of life. We count them as really good friends now after staying on two separate occasions. We hope we will see them sometime in our area.

FANTASTIC

Bustermurphy and his parents were AWESOME hosts and new lifetime friends. We had some unexpected rig issues and it pushed back our date of arrival by a couple of days, but our hosts were very understanding and welcomed us with open arms.

They immediately offered us 30 amp and water. AMAZING!

We enjoyed a pleasant happy hour (or 2) on their back deck that over looked a golf course - absolutely lovely! Oh... and I can't forget the homemade lemon pie made from the lemon trees in their back yard. YUMMY! They have great stories about both RVing and sailing. These folks know how to live life!

The area is very safe, quiet, and comfortable and has a beautiful aroma.

We very much enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to see these folks again!
