We are a retired couple who love to travel in our sprinter van. We have been campers for many years and just got home from a ten week trip as far northeast as Newfoundland

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We love to meet new people and connect with locals when we're traveling which is why this boondocker idea really resonates with us. We live in a lovely area and we know how hard it is to find a place to park here without being hassled. Most of the state parks here are booked very far in advance so it makes traveling without an itinerary very challenging. We've lived in Santa Cruz for about 40 years so we know the area well and would be happy to give advice if it is wanted. Our most enjoyable travels have included meeting locals and we look forward to being both a host and a user.

Wonderful people

Donna was beyond kind. Very friendly and welcoming, I immediately felt at ease. She helped get me set up in her back driveway. Her house was beautiful and it is obvious they are a very conscientious couple. I didn't meet Doug, as he was skydiving to celebrate his 70th birthday. How cool is that!

Excellent hosts!

Doug and Donna are exceptional hosts! Their spot was prepared and ready when we arrived, and they were available to greet us and help us get settled right away. We shared great conversations about our travels and what to explore in the surrounding area. It was a treat staying with them!

Great stay

We had a great stay at Doug and Donna's. They were very warm and welcoming and happy to give advice on what to see in Santa Cruz. We had a nice time chatting. The space was all that we needed and more :)

Special place In Santa Cruz

Wow! Doug and Donna were terrific. Power, water, and even a sewage drain. The location is cozy, in town, but quiet, and close to the ocean. None of the things their location offer matter as much as the two wonderful hosts. We had nice conversations and learned a lot from each other. Thank you Doug and Donna for the special place in Santa Cruz.
