Perfect guests

It is always a pleasure to meet people with a zest for life - and that is this couple. They are experienced travellers, and perfect guests. We hope they will visit us again on their future return visit to the island.

Delightful Guests!

We had so much fun sharing stories (and wine) with this fun couple! We have made new friends and hope that one day we will meet up again. This is the best part of Boondocking, and why we love hosting. We wish them well on the rest of their journey!

Our new Dutch friends

We really enjoyed Robert and Nelleke. We shared lots of stories and really enjoyed seeing their motorhome and bicycles. We took them on a bicycle trip for a day and convinced them to stick around for a family BBQ. We are hoping to visit them when we go to Germany next year.

A Delightful Couple from the Netherlands

Robert and his wife Nelleke stayed with us July 13. They were very easy guests to accommodate. They didn't need any hookups, and power wouldn't do any good as their Class B, which they shipped from Europe runs on 240 VAC. Robert offered us some tree pruning tips as they used to live on about 2 1/2 acres or around 10,000 square meters. We'd love to have them stay with us again.

Wonderful Guests!

Lots of fun visiting with this delightful couple from the Netherlands. We learned a lot about their home country and their worldwide travels. They were fun, energetic, friendly and they are welcome back anytime! We found many hobbies and likes in common.

What a joy to host!

Do not miss an opportunity to meet this lovely, personable couple. We have fond memories of Nelleke’s easy, sweet laughter and Robert’s warm personality. They have so much enthusiasm about touring the USA...with a daunting, detailed itinerary in hand...that their travel stories will only become even more interesting. This couple loves life!

Drove in as strangers but left as friends

This was a very short stay but we wish they could have stayed longer. Rob and Nelleke are such happy and friendly people from The Netherlands travelling the US and Canada, it would be hard not to like them! We had such a nice time visiting with them.
We would welcome them back any time and any other Host would be lucky to have them as guests!

Safe travels Rob and Nelleke!
