We enjoy exploring new places and having the opportunity to meet new people. We are especially fond of finding interesting spots close to beaches orr small towns, where we can park our 20ft travel trailer for a night or two. We like places that offer areas to walk, ride our bikes, or just relax. We enjoy the chance to learn about the history of an area and the local cuisine.
We have enjoyed many years of traveling, first with a tent, then pulling a tent trailer, then a small R-pod, and now we have a 20 ft. Prolite. Our travels have taken us all across Canada, the Magdalen Islands and throughout the eastern United States. We have traveled across Canada in a 23ft Class C. We have also camped by tent in Germany, New Zealand and California.
Not at the present time.
We like to travel on the smaller highways through small towns, stopping by a picnic area or by beaches.
We live in a small picturesque seaside community called, Hubbards on Nova Scotia's south shore. We live near a number of beautiful beaches and are not far from Peggy's Cove and the historic town of Lunenburg. As well, we are just a 40 minute drive away from Halifax City.
We pull a Prolite Supreme with 2 bikes on the back. Total length with bikes would be 24ft. It has 2 slides, one on either side, for a total width when they are open of 8ft 4 in. Overall height is 8ft 6in. Our towing vehicle is an SUV.
They were both very nice. Appreciated the toilet paper!! Welcome back anytime
We didn't get to share much time with this couple because of requirements for "Social Distancing "with fear of virus spreading but the short conversation with this couple was certainly welcoming and a slight stress reliever from these difficult times we are going through. We would Love to meet up or host this couple again to become better aquainted.They really seemed to be a great people! They are welcome back anytime! Safe travels and Good health!
We shared a very enjoyable experience with this couple.
Good time sharing experiences around a campfire.
They are welcome to visit us any time.
Unfortunately I didn't get an opportunity to visit with Sailon. I am glad to have hosted them and hope to cross paths in the future.
What a wonderful and friendly couple they are! I truly enjoyed talking with them. They cooked a wonderful soup and offered me some and I just had to have the recipe, it was soooo good! They had great stories to tell and I look forward to joining them at their host location! Can’t wait! My only regret is that they didn’t stay longer! Will welcome them back anytime! Wonderful new friends I made!
We had the pleasure of hosting these two for a night. They invited us to tour their travel trailer, chatted about sailing, life events, etc, and invited us to Boondock at their place up North when we eventually make it that way. We would 100% enjoy their company on a future stay should they pass back through our way.
Great visit with wonderful couple. Felt like instant friends. Good conversation and sharing tips on travel. Gone have to make it possible to reconnect!
Very nice couple from Canada. Great talking to them. They are welcome back anytime. We hope to travel to Nova Scotia next year. We will definitely stop by.
Nice to meet our "neighbors" from NS. Our pleasure to meet them and share our love of travel with them and learn new things from them too. Gift of homemade bread was awesome. Looking forward to next time we can get together. Never been on a sailboat so it sounds very interesting!! Very friendly folks.
So many good things to say about this interesting, personable couple: respectful of your schedule, time, and, space; gracious; excellent conversationalists. We are so pleased that they chose to be our guests and, quickly, our new friends. Looking forward to meeting up again on their home turf in beautiful Nova Scotia.
This was the third time we met Sailon, as we exchanged homes in 2018 and 2019.
They are a lovely couple, and have been incredibly kind, patient and helpful to us as we planned our return trip to NS to pick up our RV, adjusting to our evolving plans and needs as we were travelling during covid.
We had originally planned a quick stop to pick up a box of supplies that they kindly stored for us, but we parked for the night on their suggestion. Though it was 10:00 pm when we arrived, they were patiently waiting on their front patio, with big smiles and a friendly hello!
And what a beautiful location in the St Margaret's Bay area - well worth a visit!
Really enjoyed our stay, and meeting Hosts. They suggested places to visit which were fantastic! Lovely! Thank you so much.
Très bel endroit .Ont pris le temps de nous informer des endroits à voir . Même si on ne parle pas bien anglais , très bon accueil. On à fini par se comprendre .Merci beaucoup.
Two of the most pleasant, patient and generous people you could want to meet. Despite various trials and tribulations - all caused by us - they adapted willingly and cheerfully. A great spot to stop over and a wonderful location to visit. How can you go wrong here!
Unfortunately we did not get to spend a lot of time with our hosts, but we had a lot in common with this lovely couple. They gave us great information of the area and local sights. Highly recommend a stop over here at Sailon.
i can’t say enough about the kindness and generosity of our hosts! From the moment we arrived, they made us feel at home! Location was lovely, we were able to walk to 2 beaches, and it was a beautiful drive to Peggy’s cove, and the next day to Lunenburg. Thank you both for a memorable stay!❤️❤️
We were made to feel so welcome by the kindness of this wonderful couple. They are very knowledgeable about rv and camping and sailing! They had great suggestions on how to maximize our time in NS. Some lovely chats over coffee and wine. Please stop by if you are ever in southern Ontario!
Great nights sleep in this beautiful neighbourhood! The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. They gave us great recommendations for travel plans and some local eats/attractions, which we followed and it worked out great! We just wish we would have shown up a little earlier in the evening to have had more time to chat.
Thanks so much for the stay.
A perfect respite for the night. Woderful hosts full of local knowledge and had a great chat with them. Thanks so much
What a warm reception, and so friendly. Sailon were very nice and helpful to us.
They give us much more then just Boondocking, we are very grateful to them.
We love their stories.
Mia & Clemens
Loved this beautiful and interesting location, which is in an area we would not have otherwise discovered or enjoyed. Sailon represents everything that is best about Boondockers Welcome. We are so happy to have come to know them and grateful that they opened their home to us.
We greatly appreciated our stay. This was our first experience with Boondockers, but certainly not our last one. Thanks a lot to Terry & Cherie who went far beyond what we expected. Hope to see you again:)
Denis & Danielle
I must apologise. When we returned from our trip in June I wrote a reference for this wonderful couple thinking it had posted. I am now aware it didn’t, my bad. We had a great stay at between the beaches. It is indeed near some of the most beautiful beaches. Sailon were very welcoming and we had an interesting talk and enjoyed hearing of their travel experience, learnt a lot.
Thank you again and hope to be back in beautiful NS someday.
Great spot! Welcoming stay and enjoyed conversation ... enjoy when teachers get together :) ! Loved the homemade granola! - recipe? :)
Thank you for taking my Boondock on short notice, truly appreciated! Got a chance to drive the area, look at listings, and go to the beach - crossing my fingers! Did my groceries at Sobeys which was great to be able to stock up on the way to camp (very close), my gas (where you directed me) ... and went to Peggy's. Very good location with tourist destinations, gift shops and amenities! Beautiful Gentle Nova Scotia!
hello from Big Pond thank you for letting us stay at your house and giving all the good travel tips.
We had a great time with Sailon and enjoyed the time with them. My wife and I are endorsing this wunderfull couple and hope to meet them again in the near future.
a big hug from Gabi and Joe
