We live in a residential area which backs on to a pasture. We have space for a small RV (camper van or small trailer) in our driveway. Total length of driveway is 30 feet. You are welcome to hook up to our electricity and water.
Relax and have fun.
Driveway has a very slight slope-something to consider for leveling your unit.
Parking is available on the side of our property, just outside our side fence.
Not available for boondockers until April 2018.
Nanaimo Waterfront is gorgeous. Westwood Lake provides a 6 kilometer walking trail. Many beaches to enjoy just 30 minutes away in Parksville area.
We were stuck because of full ferries and I contracted Brenda. Within minutes she responded and accepted. I needed to work for a few hours and she provided me with Wi-Fi for my laptop. This allowed me to complete my work and not be stressed about the missed ferry. I am extremely grateful for this gesture and would highly recommend!
Brenda accepted our Stay Request with only a few hours notice. Even though no one would be home upon our arrival, she gave us directions & let us know her husband would check in with us when he got home, which he did. He was friendly & welcoming & offered us electricity & water. The next morning, we met Brenda & had a quick chat.
We loved our 1 night stay - it definitely was a ‘Home Sweet Home’. Very personable hosts who we enjoyed getting to know. Great paved and level parking spot! Thanks again you guys!!! Maybe we’ll see you in Ottawa...
Even though Brenda and her husband were having company for dinner they graciously welcomed me and offered a beautiful quiet place to stay. It is something we often Underestimate the value of... a safe and welcoming place to stay. Thank you so very much. I had to leave early in the morning for the ferry, but I do hope i will have the opportunity to return the kindness.
Brenda and John were so sweet, thoughtful and caring. I loved spending a couple days parked beside their home. It was perfect timing for fresh raspberry jam (tons of ride raspberries in their garden!) as Brenda was just finding a batch when I arrived. I can't say enough about these two. It really did feel like being at home with two dear friends. Thanks John and Brenda! Hope so cross paths again sometime.
Brenda and John are great people and wonderful hosts. Thanks again for sharing and providing a great stay on my journey.
Thanks Brenda and John for letting us stay with you on thanksgiving!
We left early because all of the other things we would like to visit.
Hope to see you again one day!
Sandra and Erik
Very nice folks.
Easy to find and a nice quiet spot, just what I was looking for.
Our Home Sweet Home were great hosts. They are a great couple. We stayed at their place 2 nights, and each day upon our arrival they greated us with refreshments and delightful conversation. They went beyond what is expected to make sure that we had everything needed for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The space provided for our small motorhome was paved and level and the right size for our rig. Their place is very well kept and the neighborhood is quiet. We very much enjoyed our stay at Our Home Sweet Home, we do not hesitate to recommend this host to other boondockers.
We stayed two nights with this couple. They both were lovely from the start!
Brenda made herself available for all of our questions and was flexible with our arrival times both evenings.
Their neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and we were able to plug in and fill up our water tanks. He also gave me the lead on directions to a free dump station.
Our Littles were delighted by their sweetness and couldn't believe that they weren't long-time family friends.
We would contact them again when visiting Nanaimo!
Their place was convenient to the main highway to the ferry terminals, easy to find, quiet & needed just an inch or two to level out our rig. They had water and electricity available all within easy reach.
Our hosts were as gracious, friendly and generous as you could imagine. We arrived needing just to organize and wrap-up a long road trip, and left with a couple of new, really kind friends.
Thank you again for everything!
