Description

We live on a 1/2 acre minutes from US 290 in the Northwest Houston suburbs (Cypress area).
We have a 100 ft concrete driveway in the front of the house with an additional gravel RV pad next to the house with water and 30/50 amp electric.

There is a entertaining review from someone who was scared of the narrow driveway over the ditch - well lucky you, we have expanded the driveway over the ditch so it's much wider than it was before!

House Rules

No smoking in front of the house (only on the side next to your RV please)
If you spend a Saturday night, please consider Church with us Sunday morning (it's very casual)
Please do not pull into the driveway across the street from us (grumpy neighbors)

Access Road Conditions

Off the freeway (US 290) your exit is a 5 lane, then you turn on our street which is a two lane blacktop. Both are in excellent condition.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Driveway or in front of the RV.

Availability

It is always available. We will soon have a rod-iron gate across the property and drive, however in the unlikely event we are not going to be there when you arrive we can open the gate remotely for you.

We prefer to welcome guests who are staying in their RV visiting or touring the area and not using us for storage. Our business right down the street has daily & monthly rates for temporary storage if you just want a place to park while visiting relatives or going on a cruise out of Galveston.

Location

Houston, TX, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Houston Galleria, Traders Village, lots of shopping & restaurants in the area. Minutes from Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and about anything else you can imagine...

Lovely Family!

This was our first RV experience, we purchased our coach 2 days previous. This family was extremely helpful in providing us with tips and advice! Their kindness & generosity overflowed. Not only did we stay on their property, our family of 5 was graciously invited to spend the day with them on their gorgeous sailboat. These folks have set the bar high for us to follow in paying it forward to fellow full timers!
It was a tight fit for our huge 43' rig but my husband nailed it on his first try. We weren't able to fully extend our slides, but made it work. We have gained new friends and look forward to following their sailing adventures! Thank you for everything!!!

An Oasis in the City

A great place to stay in the heart of the City. Had excellent facilities and great location. Friendly hosts that made sure that we were set up just fine. Hopefully next time we will have time to get to know this great family :)

Awesome!

Great hosts in a great location! Backing into the driveway was easy in our 24’ class C. The shade from the trees was great, and we felt very safe all night. Thanks again and have a happy and safe 4th!

Nice location, kind hosts!

We were only there for one evening, but the hosts were kind and accommodating, and offered great hookups! Hosts are very knowledgeable about RV life & fulltime RV living.

Clear and Helpful

The instructions and layout for Tgmarrs were clear and the host helped with anything. We stayed in 35 ft 5er with slides on both sides and 13.5 ft height.

Great stay

We had a great stay with Tgmarrs. It is an urban area but was plenty quiet and easy to access. Nice family! Would not hesitate to stay again. Thanks Tgmarrs family!

Super nice family in a great neighborhood

Troy and his girls were very welcoming to our family. Got us hooked up and gave us valuable information for traveling full time with kids. We needed an extra night in the area and he graciously offered his business lot since he had another boondocker the same day. Thank you tgmarrs!

Nice private spot

We parked with Tgmarrs for 3 days while in Houston, and had an overall positive experience. I highly recommend getting there before dark, and I would not recommend a bigger rig than about 30'. They have a nice long driveway, but it's tricky to get the angle right to get into. It's one of those driveways that is narrow at the beginning, and has a HUGE ditch on either side of the driveway as you come in off the street, so if you don't get the angle JUST right, your tire will go off that edge and you'll be calling GoodSam. (Likely need a few repairs as well). Not a ton of room to maneuver in front, either. It was probably the most nerve wracking back up job of our 6 month tour. Once you get PAST that where you are IN the driveway, there is more room to maneuver, but the space for the RV next to the house and garbages is also pretty narrow because of a brick column, so again, only if you are super confident in your backing up abilities. So that's the space you're working with. Water and power are easily accessible, we never did get the sewage hooked up, but we were only there for 3 days, so didn't need it too badly.
Our schedules just didn't mesh up so much while we were there, but we did manage to finally meet on the last night and had a wonderful time chatting! A really wonderful family, and very interesting exchange students. Our daughter really got along with their youngest, so it was hard to get her to leave when it was time for bed! They invited us to go out on their boat and join them at their yacht club for fun and games, but we were unable to due to scheduling challenges. They were super communicative and easy to get a hold of.
I definitely recommend staying with them, especially if you have a smaller rig, and you are confident in your back up skills.

Quiet site and great hosts !

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Very helpful and generous regarding our needs. We have had a nice chat with Troy before we left. Wish we have had more time with them in this area. We do not hesitate to highly recommend this host.

Quick Response

I'd like to commend Tgmarrs for getting back to me quickly after I contacted them to inquire about our initial boondocking opportunity. Because of my own schedule, it looks like we won't get to make this connection, but I definitely look forward to meeting them in person in the near future!

Very accommodating and laid back...

The Marrs were very accommodating and made it very easy for us to come and go as we needed. We had everything we could ask for; and hopefully didn't cause to much of a ruckus with our 4 children!

I would definitely recommend you reach out to them if you need a place to crash while in the area.

Great people

This couple could not have been more helpful. They gave us a spot even though there was already a boondocker there. Very interesting conversation and we shared much in common. I hope he and his family make it to our place so we can return the favor and get to know them even better.

GREAT HOSTS

We had a lovely stay with Troy and Kari and their beautiful daughters and exchange students. They welcomed us into their family and we attended a musical function in which the children participated. The location is good and the parking spot flat and comfortable. Troy was particularly helpful with information regarding the motorhome and we look forward to keeping in touch with them.

Great Hosts

We stayed a couple of nights here, one night at their home and another at their business.
Their home and business are located in a nice suburb and there is hardly any traffic overnight.
It was so nice after a year on the road to be able to take advantage of Troy's kind offer to go to his business so that we could attend to the accumulation of tasks that needed doing on our RV. Nice to meet all the family and really appreciative of all the assistance given us to get a place sorted to store our RV while we go away for 6 weeks and to get topped up with water and get our tanks emptied was an added bonus.
