We're offering boondocking at our home in large part because we are interested to learn more about long-term RVing. We have lived in Central Florida for over 20 years and are knowledgeable about the area and its points of interest.
Very limited mechanical skills. We have a thorough acquaintance with non-touristy areas of Central Florida.
Various uninvited Florida insects
None yet. Costco would appeal to us with those famous $1.50 dogs and soda.
Our rig is still a dream yet realized.
We were originally going to be attending a martial arts event in Orlando but when the event was rescheduled due to Elsa we found we had some time on our hands in the Orlando area! We were welcomed to watch fireworks with this beautiful family and our kids loved playing with their kids! We took their recommendation to go to Smyrna Dunes which was a truly world class beach experience. Thanks so much! We had a wonderful time in Sanford.
Hosts communicate well. Very easy to communicate with as we made our plan. Hosts are very welcoming; came out & introduced & helpful. Sincere pleasure to work with. Driveway is level & comfortable. Partly shaded. They are just as they describe. We’d definitely return. Thank you for wonderful visit!!
Our first time ever as Boondockers Welcome guests was sooo far beyond THEE BEST here with Bill, Nina and family that words will never suffice.
Together with their three precious son's, Bill and Nina welcomed us with wide open arms and then kept them open continuously!!!
Their home and their town are both lovely and we would LOVE to return to see this wonderful family again.
We have new friends, and most certainly pray that one day we can host them as well!!!
Very level driveway with 15 amp electric and water. Very nice hosts! We rode our bike down the Sanford Riverwalk and found a wonderful coffee shop with a breeze and a view of Lake Monroe!
This was our first stay and they made it feel so easy and so welcome! We even got to take time and experience an Easter egg hunt with them! Great family, so caring!!
We had such a great time here. This family was amazing. We recommend anyone going to this area for any reason, stay here.
DUKE and I had a great few days with this kind family. Sanford is a beautiful little town and this location is in walking distance to the riverwalk. The kids were very kind with my dog. Even so kind as to babysit him as I got my Jeep repaired. Thanks again RV Dreamers! Hope one day your dream to travel comes true! A must stay if in the area.
We stayed for two nights in this quiet town. The family was very inviting and friendly. The Riverwalk was nice, and the town has a great brewery! We also kayaked on the Wekiva River; highly recommended!
Enjoyed visiting with the hosts as well as exploring the area. Thanks again!
Lovely family, very peaceful area. Lots of history and cultural interests. Great stay, thank you so much for adding to our current adventure.
RV Dreamers are such a sweet family and gracious hosts. Their parking spot is completely level and looooong. We stopped for an over night stay and I was able to leave my truck and trailer connected (28' trailer) with plenty of room to spare. We took a morning walk to the river and downtown shops. A wonderful town and nice quiet stopover... it couldn't have been easier and RV dreamers are more than accommodating. Thanks so much!!
Great overnight stay! Stanford is a nice town with a wonderful River walk for walking or biking. Cobblestone downtown area with excellent restaurants. Our hosts, Bill and Nina, were so friendly. Bill graciously told us a little bit of the areas history, which we enjoyed learning. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Highly recommend this as your next stop!
This is our second visit to RV Dreamers! They are such a lovely, generous family. We had several nice conversations with them. Their site and location are great too! We look forward to visiting them again!!
Wonderful friendly family... I really enjoy my stay and loved the fresh eggs from their chickens... Made a wonderful breakfast. Level driveway parking and close to a nice bike/ walk path along the river. Hope to visit again... Thank you
Wonderful family and a great place to park within an easy bike ride to the charming city of Sanford. Don’t miss the German restaurant (Hollerbach’s) and deli. If you’re lucky, you’ll get fresh eggs delivered to your door. Thanks to RV Dreamers for a great stay!
The RV Dreamers were excellent hosts! They invited us to dinner on our first evening and told us so much about the surrounding area. Their kids enjoyed an evening of hanging out with our rabbits and they gave us power when the sun failed us. If we were ever traveling through the area again we wouldn't hesitate to look them up.
This host has the most level driveway in the most beautiful neighborhood! The view of the oak trees from the driveway! Wow! We enjoyed bike riding in the neighborhood and to the local historic downtown and riverside walkways. Very sweet hosts with many suggestions. Our 29’ class C fit just right with the slide overhanging a bit in the neighbor’s yard (which is very roomy). Will be back!
Absolutely lovely family in a safe quiet neighborhood. Look forward to staying again sometime! Thanks so much for everything!
A nice family in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to the river. They are kind enough to offer an electric hook up and water refill. 30 mins to Orlando.
A beautiful family and the perfect place to park. I can't thank them enough for their kindness and generosity. A destination with lots of outdoor activities close by . Hosts knowledgeable and thoughtful to share lots of information..😀
Driveway was quite level and we were greeted by the whole family, we chatted for a while about RV life and local recommendations. Quiet area and good night's sleep, we were ready for the road again the next day. Thanks for everything, especially the eggs!
Wonderful host, nice long flat concrete driveway in a quiet neighborhood. A little tight width wise but doable and easily fit our 35 ft with room to park the toad. They offer free water and 110 volt hookup as well.
Great loction...easy walk to town. Great Hosts. Great people! We made new friends and would love to come back one day.
Loved our short time in Sanford. Can't wait to come back and check out more sights and eats.
RV Dreamers are a lovely family in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Their site is perfectly level and the water and 15 amp electric were great to have. We enjoyed our conversations and they had great suggestions of places to visit. We would definitely like to stay again when we are in the area.
We had a great stay at this great location. Very nice hosts and safe neighborhood.
The hosts were very nice and the spot to park was level and clean. I pray they get their RV and get to travel with the kids. Thanks so much.
The Dreamers were very welcoming and they were such good people to meet. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. Sanford is a gorgeous town with its downtown and river walk along the St. Johns River/Lake Monroe. Volusia County's Lake Monroe Park is not far with an RV dump for $5.33, which was a nice bonus. Just north of the park is the northernmost SunTrain station and we took our host's advice and took the train to beautiful Winter Park for a walk around the square.
Do not miss the chance to meet this awesome family and city!
We enjoyed our stay in this very nice and safe neighborhood. The hosts are friendly and made us feel welcome. Definitely recommend this location.
Lovely family in a very quaint town! Would love to stay again if ever in the area. Wish you well on your journey!
RV Dreamers are our go to stop when traveling to Sanford for our kids sporting events. Great hosts! Great conversation. Everything we need for our small travel trailer. Looking forward to our next trip out that way!
Nice big flat spot. Very nice hosts. I would stay here again. Thanks so much for the nice evening.
We loved our stay in Sanford! Our hosts were so kind to us... our first Boondockers Welcome experience!
RVDreamers has become our second home during travel baseball seasons. Both of my boys play in Sanford regularly and the RVDreamers always open their driveway to us with open arms. Had the opportunity of snacking on some amazing home made pizza this last trip fresh out of their pizza oven. Always a pleasure staying with the RVDreamers. See you in a few weeks!
I've stayed at RV Dreamers multiple times and it is always a pleasure to see them. Good conversation, great location with electric and water. Easy in and out. Look forward to seeing them again soon on our next visit to Sanford.
We were happy to meet you and your family. Very impressed with your boy's coming out and introducing themselves and a beautiful wife. We were sorry the Rocket Launch was canceled but enjoyed your park on the St John's River You have a perfect spot. Looking forward to coming back to do more sightseeing. Thanks again for your hospitality
This was our first Boondockers welcome stay and it was a great one. The location allowed for us to bike into downtown multiple times a day to enjoy both the Riverwalk and delicious dining. Our hosts were very hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel welcome, even bringing us to church with them. We look forward to coming back sometime.
Our hosts were awesome! They welcomed us and made us feel right at home. We didn’t get to chat as much as we would have liked because of the current events but we were always greeted with a warm smile and hello. Their property is gorgeous as is their neighborhood. We had a great stay and would definitely love to visit again.
We had such a great time with this very nice, welcoming and helpful family. They allowed us to stay an extra night as we had to remain in the area and we were so happy to spend one more evening with them. We had very interresting conversations and the 3 kids are so sweet. We wish we could have more time sharing activities and meals together. Hopefully we'll meat again in France or anywhere in the world! Again thanks for all. We highly recommend!
Very quiet neighborhood setting with a nice family as hosts. They offered hook ups but we really didn’t need them so we declined. Had a relaxing evening and a good nights sleep. Would definitely return.
We had such a wonderful time with this kind fun family! My kids had so much fun playing with their kids! They live in a beautiful neighborhood in a great location! We would absolutely stay again, and we hope they come visit us when they go out on the road! Thank you very much for your hospitality!
What a nice family! Our kids had such a blast playing with their kids and we had such a blast chatting. It was so nice talking homeschooling, kids etc. We hope we will be able to meet up again! Thank you so much for a memorable stay.
Second time staying with RV Dreamers. Always a pleasure staying with them. Great location and downtown Sanford is a hidden gem. The lake is beautiful and great places to eat downtown. We travel to Sanford frequently for baseball trips for my son and its always great to see the RV Dreamers. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon.
I am very grateful to their family and gave me a lot of help. We live in a very comfortable and beautiful place. BILL's home school is great. I appreciate this approach and they have received great results. Children are great and have great expectations in the future. We will be permanent friends and thank them again.
You can follow my channel first and wait for me to make a video for uploading. You can learn more about it here.
We had a wonderful stay at RV Dreamers. They live in a peaceful neighborhood with walking distance to the quaint town of Sanford. Our hosts were very accommodating, and were quick to suggest perfect places to suit our needs! Our host family were very warm and friendly! We enjoyed great conversations and our 11 month old enjoyed playing with the boys! Thank you so much for letting us stay! We hope to cross paths again, perhaps one day on the road. 😉
Thank you for your hospitality. Your family made me feel right home. Level concrete driveway on side of house. Sanford was a cool town to visit...caught Porchfest while I was there with bands playing on local historic homes’ porches.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this host if you are in the Orlando area. May your RV Dream come true.
We could not have asked for nicer hosts. He even helped us with an issue on the rv. The boys are very sweet and well-behaved. We were given a map of things to do by the oldest son. We will remember this sweet family fondly. Thank you once again for letting us stay with you in your very nice neighbourhood.
This is the perfect boondocking spot! The host and their family are very welcoming. Downtown Sanford is a great area to walk to from their house. We hope to be back one day!
Thanks so much to RV Dreamers for sharing their place and providing room in their driveway. We didn't actually connect because we were off early to see the Kennedy Space Center. I know you are both anxious to learn about RVing and dream of getting on the road some day.
Good luck with your dream and we wish you well.
Thanks for being part of the Boondockers Welcome Community.
David & Judy Hale
So impressed by this family’s kindness and care they showed us! Hope to one day give back to them. Best behaved, respectful children, It was a blessing to see! Thank you again for your kindness! And allowing us to be a part of your Paradise! Sincerely TheTrampers
The hosts were lovely, providing a 20 amp connection and sightseeing tips. My Class C just fit in the driveway with no slides out. Close enough to bike into Sanford for a meal.
A beautiful family, the place is very calm, no noise. Near of many activities. We recommend!!
Great down town with many restaurants & coffee shops , recommend b bill & Nina
Great kids busy with home school
Interesting town with historic district
Thanks bill & Nina for a nice stay
Great stay at RVDreamers. Level concrete driveway. Electric and water provided and close to the Boondocking site. Bill, Nina, and the Boys were very welcoming and polite. Will definitely look to stay at their location again in the future. Nice location, great accommodations and even better people. Thanks again.
This is our second time staying with RV Dreamers and it was just as wonderful as the first time. Without their recommendation we would have missed the manatees. Thanks, RV Dreamers. We hope to see you the next time we are in the area.
We met Nina and the boys on arrival. Great family. We backed into their driveway with no problems and our 38 foot fifth wheel had plenty of room front to back. The spot is next to their carport, so we couldn't put out a couple of the slides.
The neighborhood is very quiet. We slept great. Sanford is a really nice small town on a beautiful lake. Lots to see and do. We highly recommend this host and wish them well in their dreams.
Our hosts were amazing! They were extremely kind and welcoming. The space was super flat and easy to park in. Electric and water were right next to the space and super convienent! Love the location near the water!
Very good contact, this place is very quiet and near to downtown and lake Monroe.
Très bon contact, tout près du lac Monroe. Une piste de vélos ou pédestre longe le lac.
Près du centre ville.
We enjoyed our stay in this quiet neighborhood. Walking into town by way of the river walk was delightful and we found a great little cafe to stop at along the way. We were welcomed by the entire family, and chatted a while, and were given ideas of things to see and places to go. Great stay.
What a wonderful couple and their three boys. They all made us feel so welcome. Their property is centrally located in a quite, residential neighborhood. We highly recommend this property and would love to stay there again when we return to the area.
What a nice family RV Dreamers are! They were warm and welcoming hosts. I hope we have a chance to return their hospitality.
nice welcoming familly. Famille tres accueillante et genereuse de son savoir historique de l'endroit et des activites a faire pas tres loin.
Always a pleasure to be in the company of Bill , Nina , and boys . Thanks for your hospitality .
Cheers Rei and Jackie
We had an absolute blast at this location. What a wonderful stay and we had a blast enjoying some of the holiday festivities. The town is full of some really friendly locals and the hosts were so warm and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this spot to other travelers!
We enjoyed our stay! Our kids had a blast with their sweet boys. Thanks for letting us stay even though you took off on vacay early.
We had a great visit with the Dreamers! They are a great family with wonderful kids who got along great with our kids.
We enjoyed driving about an hour to Canaveral National Seashore where we saw dolphins, armadillos, and turtles... and also to the Kennedy Space Center which was an amazing experience for us all!
The hosts were very helpful with their recommendations of things to do and meals to eat while visiting Florida.
We were able to back-in to the driveway easily - it was a little narrow for us, so we could only get our front slide out about 80% of the way - but it totally worked and we'd happily request to stay again to visit central Florida!
Thanks so much for your hospitality!
david f 12/3/19 to 12/7/19 great host i've enjoyed my stay here had a opportunity to see a rocket launch very quiet neighborhood couldn't ask for a better stay thank you
We had a great stay in their wonderful neighborhood. We were able to go to Universal Studios and see other area sights. An overall great location!
This host made my first boondocking experience wonderful. It was very quiet, and close to a historic district.You couldn’t ask for nicer people to stay with.
Lovely family with a warm welcome. This was our first Boondocking experience and it couldn’t of been better the family greeted us with open arms and told us all about the town of Sanford advised us where to go and we’re not to go they told us all about the history of Sanford that was very interesting and we shared some stories about our RV conversion. The town of Sanford is absolutely beautiful lots to do downtown, that is walkable😊 thank you so much for your amazing hospitality We look forward to passing through Sanford again
Bruce & Julie❤️
Charming family, spend a good time , very quiet neighborhood. Would stop again anytime.
We had such an amazing time with Rv Dreamers. They were the most kind and loving host we have ever stayed with. They helped our kids have an amazing Halloween and shared costumes to make it even better. We had a great time on Halloween with them and so thankful they allowed us to spend it with them. They made us feel at home and like we were family. They were so kind in so many ways and we feel privileged to have been able to stay with them and anyone who stays with them will be lucky. Thank you Rv Dreamers for sharing your amazing family and home with us. Thank you.
Very sweet family, very welcoming. I was visiting family in the area and was very happy to be able to stay nearby. Thank you. This was my first boondocking experience.
Thanks to Bill, Nina, Levi, Luke and Mika for hosting us on our return trip this year. We had a wonderful evening eating Bill`s homemade pizzas. Thanks again and happy RV hunting. Best wishes Phil and Jo.
Dunkin and I had a fantastic visit while we stayed here!
Nice paved driveway. Plenty of room for a larger rig if needed!
Lots of stuff to do in the area including a riverwalk just down the road, marina, restaurants, shops cafes and several of Florida's springs are located within an hours drive from here.
And while they don't yet have a their RV yet, this family is well on their way to having a lot of amazing adventures!
Thank again guys! We had a wonderful time!
Would definitely stay again!
It was refreshing to be around a young family , they were very welcoming and we learned a lot about the town of Sandford
Thanks to Bill and Nina and Levi, Luke and Mika hope you make it to Canada sometime soon .
Really enjoyed our stay with RVDreamers. It's a lovely quiet neighbourhood and the hosts were very accommodating. Thanks!
We've had the pleasure of meeting their lovely family and stays two nights at their place. Quiet and peacefull neighborhood, great conversations.
Thank you for all.
We were very pleased to meet such wonderful Boondockers Welcome hosts. They are as welcoming, friendly, gracious and generous a host family as one could wish for.
We camped in their drive, biked the shady, oak lined streets in their neighborhood, meandered the riverfront walk and strolled through their re-vitalized downtown area, hopping on a Saturday afternoon.
Also visited NASA Kennedy Space Center to witness the SpaceX Falcon9 rocket launch for the Crew Dragon demo.
But, the creme de la creme was our shared meal featuring our host's homemade Neopolitan pizza, baked at 900 degrees in his Italian pizza oven.
Thank you, RVDreaming. When you begin to realize your RV Dream, please come visit us in Colorado.
Pleasant stay thanks to Bill and his family. Good recommendations of things to see in the area.
We stayed for 3 nights recently and were blown away by the kindness of Bill, Nina and their 3 lovely young boys. From local tips, loaning of snorkeling gear and a homemade pizza night in the famous pizza oven! The spot was quiet, flat and perfectly located to visit Alexander and Wekiwa Springs. Highly recommend!
Stayed 2 nights. This family was very welcoming and accommodating. Enjoyed visiting with them and playing a game of scrabble with the oldest son (he won). A good bike riding area, close to downtown for restaurants. We enjoyed very much.
Really enjoyed our rainy stay with this wonderful family. Had nice conversations and ate lots of his tasty pizza. Their three sons were easy to talk to and very talented too.
Hope their RV Dream comes true.
Such a sweet family! Bill and family were very attentive and gave us great recommendations as to where to go and what to do. Their driveway was a perfect spot for our visit to Sanford and surrounding areas.
Awesome hosts! They even gave us a personal tour of the city. Friends forever!!
We had a great stay for the second time and do recommend this site.
I squeezed my big 5er in their driveway and would do it again when I get back to that area. They were very sweet and helpful. Love💗you guys🌸
We had a safe quiet place to stay, made new friends and thoroughly enjoyed our time with this lovely family. We feel that the entire idea of this site was perfectly executed in our stay.
Nina and kids joined us a couple days later at Blue Springs to see the manatees come in and we played and sang some too!
Bill even brought out tools I didn’t even know existed when I had to fix a leaking a/c - climbed up on the roof with me and gave me a lesson on how the unit operated.
Can’t wait to see these guys again!
We loved staying with this family! So very welcoming and family orientated. We went to the local festival that was happening in town together and had a great time! We already miss being there and look forward to visiting again.
First stay using the Boondocks welcome worked out to be a great one. We made last minute decisions to stay in Orlando for Turkey Day. Bill & Nina's allowed us to stay at their home for multiple nights, even though they where away visiting family.
Water, 20 Amp electric, trash, and a flat level concrete pad. Parking space is a double drive, that turns into a single driveway along the side of house/carport. We have a 40' DP that fit fine in the space provided. If you have driver side slides they will have to be kept in; depending on how far the driveway you back up.
The house is on a quiet street, with little traffic throughout the day or night. Neighborhood has sidewalks throughout and is only a 1.5 mile walk to the river walk.
We didn't get to visit with the family for to long, but the short conversation was great.
We would stay here again if the in area.
Sandford is a beautiful location. Our hosts are the nicest family and we had a lovely time chatting with them. There is a boardwalk along the water that is within walking distance and the whole area was lovely. Thank-you B&N (and boys) from Tony and Cathy.
We loved staying in Sanford. It is such a neat town, and not too far from Orlando. Our hosts are the nicest family, and treated us like family. You couldn’t ask for nicer people to stay with.
A big thank you to Bill, Nina and the boys for letting us stay at their place. They were wonderful hosts, made us feel most welcome. Sanford is a beautiful place to explore, eat wonderful food. Thank you for a memorable stay from Phil and Jo
We came yesterday and the host, Nina, was very friendly and accommodating. Nice neighborhood, only a short walk to the lake. Very quiet and pretty location. We will definitely keep this location as a favorite to come back to.
This host made my first boondocking experience wonderful. It was very quiet, and very close to a charming city with brick streets only 3 blocks to the lake. I wish I had more time to explore. Very friendly family.
