Peaceful spot and sweet and attentive hosts!

A little oasis here! Our host was very welcoming and shared a lot of travel stories. The setting is so pretty and the view from the patio is stunning. Many thanks BW and to our hosts!

A remarkable stay!

We had a very pleasant evening and a restful night at the home of this welcoming couple. They are very welcoming. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful place where they live with this breathtaking viewand all the animals around! Thank you very much, Rachelle & Yves

Peace in Mill Bay

This was our first Boondocker stay. The hosts are amazing and the setting is spectacular! After walking around their labor of love garden and sampling some of the bounty, we enjoyed some evening wine with the hosts on their waterfront deck which is spectacular. They graciously shared food from the garden and prepared a delicious appetizer. Very quiet scenic location. I would highly recommend a visit with Luciano and Donna. They are very warm and welcoming.

Very hospitable hosts in a delightful location

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and it more than lived up to our expectations. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and made our visit very special. We ate and drank with them over the course of the 2 day visit. The designated spot for the RV is flat and quite easily accessible, and the location of the property is really spectacular. We would highly recommend these hosts to other Boondockers.

Outstanding Experience!

From the get go this experience was exceptional: Donna and Luciano communicated directions well and offered areas to visit. Their home is beautiful and located in perfect area on the bay and minutes from town. The authentic Portuguese dinner the first night was of epic proportion as was the fish and chips the 2nd night. Electrical hookup and water was offered and appreciated. Top notch hosts with a great travelogue. Our paths will cross again as they too are travelers.

Wonderful hosts

We were treated like long lost family, nicest visit with anyone in a long time.
Gracious host, amazing people and dogs!

It was a bit of a squeeze, but Luciano expertly guided us into their parking spot. We were warmly greeted and warmly treated in this beautiful spot. The gardens were lovely, the views were great, and we were even invited to share the bounty of their garden with a stew prepared by Luciano. We even got to take some of Donna’s wildlife artwork with us in the form of notecards. It was a short ride to Victoria and Butchart Gardens, and the coastline is beautiful. Great place for smaller rigs to stay!

Amazing location and gracious hosts

Donna and Luciano - thank you so much for hosting us. We are sorry we came in so late in the evening as we really would have liked to visit with you and hear more about your adventures. We weren't sure you'd still be up when we came back from Victoria but hope we can visit another time and get more social time in.

Donna and Luciano have a magnificent garden and two lovely sweet dogs. They are so warm and welcoming - dogs and people :) The parking was fairly easy to get into with our truck and camper and their location is easy to find - a great place to stay!

What a wonderful time - Making new friends on the Island

Dwistle hosted us in August 2017 and we loved our stay with them!

We had such a great time together, enjoying good food out of their wonderful garden as well as good wine. They treated us like family and made us feel like home. Our dog Bella was warmly welcomed by them as well. They let us use their boat and fishing gear and helped us out with everything.

The spot for the rig was great, overviewing the ocean and with lots of privacy although not too far away from the house.

We couldn’t ask for more and we’d definitely recommend staying with this beautiful charming and heart warming couple. They have so many stories to tell about traveling and hosting people all over the world. They are still so young in their minds and we can learn a lot from them - we were having a blast. Thanks – we love you and wish you all the best!!!

Lovely people and great hosts

We spend two nights with Donna and Luciano and we overwhelmed by their hospitality. They treated us like old friends. Donnas pictures are amazing and Luciano's garden is an example!
It's been great. Thanks a lot!
