We are located in Port Charlotte, FL near Gulf Coast of Florida. Centrally located for attractions, waterways/canals and beaches. Lots of boaters come here for free boat launch access points.
Our home is modest with a simple cement driveway plus gravel area to accommodate rigs up to 25 feet. We do have accessible front yard grassy area for overflow parking as need.
Just be respectful and enjoy your stay!
The main street to our house is paved. Guest vehicle can park in driveway or along front yard grassy area if necessary.
We are retired military empty nesters with our own 24-foot sprinter van. We lived full-time in our sprinter van for about 8 months mainly boondicking in Bureau of Land Management, Wildlife Management, and Forest Service areas. Visited several national and state parks from West coast CA to east coast FL. We understand the ups and downs of RV lifestyle and "decision fatigue" that can set in when traveling to unknown places every few days.
We do a lot of last minute trips year-round and also rent out our home on Home Exchange, AirBnB, etc but feel free to give us a shout and see if we can accommodate you.

Very nice couple, who had lots of tips to share about boondocking and travel. I hope to cross paths with them in the road!
Such a wonderful stay! We were only passing through, but wish we could have stayed another night. RVAdventure were so friendly and welcoming. They gave us great suggestions for where to visit nearby and when we came back we had a nice conversation outside their house with some drinks. They recently finished a journey similar to what we're hoping for, so they gave us some great tips that we might try to implement. We'll definitely be back if we're in the area again!
