Great location, quiet neighborhood

This boondock is located in the heart of the Manhattan Beach area (which is amazingly beautiful!) The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. There was plenty of room for our 18 foot class B. We enjoyed a wonderful night’s rest and would definitely stay again next time we’re in the area!

Great hosts!

Joe and Jackie were such wonderful hosts and were very helpful in so many different ways! Had some wonderful conversation and a very good night's sleep! Highly recommend!

Amazing host

This is our first boondocker welcome experience. I was very nervous, and felt so out of place in my hippie old camper in multi million dollar street. But Joe was so kind and helpful and welcoming. Helpful with great recommendations and resources. We spent my daughters birthday in universal studios about 40 minutes away. So thankful and lucky that they allowed us to make that dream a reality.

Perefect driveway and hosts

Lovely hosts who bring hosting to a new level! I had to have been the most flaking-seeming guest; I mixed up weeks of all things (not my typical m.o.) Yet, J & J were incredibly accommodating. When we arrived it was dark. They have special, custom-made ramps to get you level. They directed me into their driveway like pros. In the morning, when I finally saw how we were parked, it was brilliant! They also gave us some info on the area and ideas of fun attractions to take in. Thank you for a safe and hospitable place to stay the night.

Adorable town with amazing beach views and walking trails close by. They were great hosts, and helped us find a grocery store near by.

Wonderful stay in Manhattan Beach

Joe and Jackie were lovely and very helpful! We loved the welcome packet and found it very useful! We were able to walk to the beach and spend some time enjoying the scenery. We also were able to share a drink with them and had a wonderful time getting to know them. Highly recommend this wonderful spot!

Nice and quiet with great hosts!

Enjoyed my overnight stay here at Joe and Jackie’s! Thank for the use of your levelers! Very enjoyable!

Beautiful location

This was our first boondocking experience in our campervan during the pandemic. Great, quiet location within walking distance of the beach. Joe allowed us to use leveling blocks which was generous.


August 2020

worthwhile getaway for sure

The Hosts were very hospitable, inviting, generous, and all-around fun to be with. My wife and I totally enjoyed our stay in August of 2020. We had much to talk about, share, and relate to. We enjoyed a meal together, took a walk together on the beach boardwalk, and played some games. it was a wonderful time and we hope to visit again.


August 2020

Beautiful place

I cant say enough good things about staying with these wonderful folks, wonderfully polite hosts as well as exquisite location about a 15 minute walk from Manhattan Beach. The area is stunning but the hosts are what really shine!


May 2020

Great quiet location. Amazing helpful hosts. Minutes from the beach

Manhattan Beach Getaway is exactly that. So quiet and peaceful in an amazing community. Their spot is perfect for camper vans. Ours is 21' and worked well with their driveway.

Wonderful Getaway

Joe & Jackie were great hosts. They were very responsive to emails, assisted with parking and had a great welcome package listing great things to do. The beach is just a short walk away, and I had amazing sunsets and went on several long bike rides. Thank you for hosting my cat Copper and I.

Great and hospitable hosts

Joe and Jackie are great hostst! They are so nice, friendly and courteous. We had some great days in a nice and quiet neighbourhood in Manhatten Beach. Joe&Jackie gave us their bakes for one day and we had a wondeful trip at the beach, a lots of maps and information about LA. There were no problems with the electric and water hook up. Thank you so much for these great days with you!

Wonderful Host!

What a great getaway! And most of all, Joe and Jackie are really generous and kind. They are really really helpful, making suggestions of activities nearby. It was a pleasure to be there 2 nights! I liked walking in the neighborhood and at the pier.


December 2018


Joe and Jackie were such wonderful hosts! I felt very welcomed and their house is so conveniently located and you can walk to the famous Manhattan beach, nice restaurants and bars. I was invited to a glass of wine and a nice chat. Thank you again for having me and hopefully to another visit soon. :-)

Very nice and lovely hosts!

We arrived at Jackie and Joe's house with a warm welcome. They were very accommodating and helped us to get some "outdoor stuff" we couldn't find before. We had very interesting conversations too! We were glad to meet them. Thank you for everything:)


September 2018


They are an amazing couple. They even invited me in for wine. We laughed and had sooo much fun. I would highly suggest people stay with them!!


August 2018

Wonderful hosts, excellent location

We stayed at this location for one night and everything about our experience was easy. Great spot, took our beach cruisers and pedaled easily to the beach. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Hosts are so friendly and helpful!!

Great hosts and location! :)

Super nice hosts and wonderful spot! Thank you!


April 2018

Wonderful hosts

I was welcomed by friendly hosts who kindly offered me electic hookup. This is a wonderful location for leaving your vehicle parked and walking around the beautiful neighborhood. There are restaurants, shops and parks all within a few blocks.


October 2017

Awesome hosts!

Joe and Jackie were so kind and friendly with us. They make us feel really welcomed, and helped us with everything we needed, and even more!
Manhattan Beach is a quite, safe and nice area to set the "camprground", and a great starting point to discover L.A.
If returning to LA, we absolutely would stay there again! :)

A Lovely and very helpful couple

J & J were so welcoming when we arrived slightly later than discussed. They had to head out shortly after arrived but not before telling us where we could find local shops and getting us all set up. They gave us lots of helpful information on where to visit, where to park with the RV, local dump sites and more. We also had trouble with our travel cot so J took us to the local hardware store to help us out (the support lasted a long time but we then found a sleeve for the pole at an outdoor store). It is a shame we did not get to spend more time with you but it was a very busy time. Thank you for hosting us and for all of your help. If you are ever at our side of the world, let us know and we hope to see you again one day!

Lovely couple

we had a great time with Joe and Jacky. We loved the location for visiting L.A and the cost during the day and had a pleasant time in the evening with our hosts!

Beautiful People

Joe and Jackie made our stay a highlight in our travels. They are easy going, accomodating, and above all else welcoming. They had dinner on our first night (delicious). Great conversation and many excellent recommendations on things to do. We privileged to meet them.

Easy going

Good place, easy to find, well situated. Nice people. Very quiet and comfortable.


February 2016

Wonderful hosts

Staying with Joe and Jackie felt like a home away from home. They were very thoughtful and accommodating and we had a great time with them. Despite Joe's recent knee surgery, he was up and about and willing to help us with anything. We had a wonderful time with them and got lots of great travelling tips. These two have seen a lot! Only two states to go. They have a beautiful home, a lot of which they have skillfully done up themselves. The drive way was easy to get into and they graciously supplied a water hose and electricity cable. They are well read, well travelled active members of the community. We highly recommend staying with them and would love to host them in the future if we can.


February 2016

Gracious hosts

So much appreciate the accommodation despite Joes's recent knee surgery. Joe and Jackie were very sweet and welcoming. The driveway did require skill to back the trailer in but was straightforward to level. We did not take advantage of the offer of water or power. The location was perfect for our trip to see Venice beach-so grateful!


January 2016

Really great hosts

We spent 4 nights at Joe and Jackie's place and they were really nice. They helped us giving some information about propane station and dump station. They offered a gift for our elder's birthday, she was really happy and both of our girls liked them a lot. We spent a great time, really quiet place not too far from the beach.


April 2015

Wonderful stay!

Joe and Jackie went out of their way to make us feel welcome! Not only did they have us over for dinner, but they were full of excellent suggestions for things to do in their area. Manhattan Beach is beautiful, and we enjoyed exploring the town.


January 2015

Wonderful Welcome

Appetizers and Wine as a welcome, congenial conversation and helpful information about local services. Joe and Jackie were wonderful. Although our timing was not the best, they welcomed us to stay the two nights before Christmas, and we could enjoy their local beach. Water, power and Wifi in a snap, Leveling blocks all set up - we can but recommend Joe and Jackie to anyone wanting to experience LA Beach life - just be prepared for LA traffic to get there!


October 2014

great welcome and hospitality

Joe and Jackie are very welcoming. We shared our travels and was invited for dinner. My dogs made new friends as well..................thank you both


March 2013

Great Hosts and Very Convenient

We stopped by for a night with Joe and Jackie, and they were great hosts. We had a 19 1/2' LTV Class B and fit very well; Joe's leveling blocks brought the driveway slope up comfortably. Good conversation and a good location on our trip south. Thanks, guys!
