We have a long, fairly wide concrete parking pad/driveway that could accommodate up to a 28' rig. Getting in and out of the driveway is the trick since we live near the end of the street (not a cul d'sac), with some jockeying required to either back in (easy getting out), or back out (possibly a little more challenging). Once you're parked though, you're in a very quiet neighborhood in the beautiful town of Edmonds, Washington. It's on Puget Sound, between Seattle and Everett, Washington. Walking to town or to the waterfront is a pleasant, easy 1+ mile walk, or public transportation is available 2 blocks away if you don't tow a car.
We have no specific house rules, and haven't had any occasion to establish any because everyone so far has demonstrated basic courtesy and consideration of our neighborhood.
The main issue in accessing our location is the last 2 blocks. We live almost at the end of a narrow city street. Big delivery/cement/dump/garbage trucks manage to maneuver around this area, but it's sometimes a challenge. If you're concerned or have questions, please contact us and we can give you more specific information.

Thank you for a perfectly wonderful experience. Happy travels and many blessings!
Jean & Daniel were very helpful to get me all set up to stay. Quiet nice location love Edmonds very special town.
Jean and Daniel are very kind and welcoming. It was very pleasant to talk with them and pleasant to sleep next to their house, a very quiet place. Thank you for everything and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Europe!
Jean and Dan were very kind and helpful when staying close to Seattle! A great private lot, very friendly, and offered us advice and help getting around the city! We will be visiting again!
Dan and Jean provided my first stop over in the U.S. Interesting and gracious hosts. Dan makes a great latte.
I would def recommend jeananddaniel to others to boondock with. Very welcoming and just some really cool folks. I really enjoyed talking to them and also enjoyed a nice dinner with them that they prepared. Thanks again and great meeting y'all
We didn't get to spend that much time with Jean and Dan since I was visiting a friend but my parents did and very much enjoyed them. Our stay was comfortable and they were warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend their place to anyone exploring Edmonds.
Great location and excellent hosts. We really enjoyed our stay. We hope to be back this way.
We stayed with Dan for 2 nights in early March 2017 while we visited family in Seattle.
Although all communication prior to our arrival was done with Jean on the computer, she was away visiting family when we stayed there. She was very quick in her responses and and very friendly and informative, we were disappointed to not have met.
Dan however was a most WONDERFUL host. A very interesting man and we had some great conversations!!! We felt VERY welcome and he was very kind to us. Thanks Dan and Jean!!!
We had the pleasure of staying with jeanandaniel.
They were absolutely lovely, accomodating and flexible.
A little bit of a wiggle with the trailer getting into place, but we all fit in the driveway fine.
What a great little spot you have in the world!
It was great to meet you both
Savannah, Tom and Knox

We stayed here and had a very warm welcome. Nice quiet comfortable neighborhood with easy in and out access for our RV. Close to a beautiful town which we walked to (about 2 miles?) close to a beautiful short 30 min ferry ride from the town.
