Our First Boondocker Guests

Doug, Jillian & Sofie were our first Boondockers Welcome Guests and we could not be more thrilled. It was relaxed, very enjoyable, great company etc etc etc. I feel like we have made new friends and look forward to visiting them sometime in the future.
Thank You for The Best First Time :)

Welcome anytime

Doug & Jillian (along with Sophie) were great guests. Enjoyed hosting them for just a short one night stay, so we didn't get much more than a short chat with them. They are welcome back anytime.

Oasis Yard

Fantastic hosts, so very personable and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed their tour of their backyard Oasis of beautiful flowers and trees. Great conversationalists and super people. Just a 4 block walk to a magnificent ocean view and down to the beach at low tide. Highly recommend this boondocking site.. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place.

Great first experience with Boondockers Welcome

We really enjoyed our first experience with Boondockers Welcome. Our host was very friendly and hospitable and made us feel welcome to stay on their property for our 2 night stay in Parksville. The tour of their garden and being able to sit out in the privacy of their delightful front yard was a bonus!!!

A wonderful peaceful stay in turbulent times

Thanks Doug and Jillian for allowing me to stay at your home's driveway while in quarantine for the Covid-19 virus situation. It made it being trailer bound a lot nicer. The neighbourhood is lovely and quiet and I liked looking out on your beautiful garden. Spring is springing!

Absolutely great experience

Loved staying at Doug and Jillian’s home for several nights. Wonderful hosts. I enjoyed their beautiful garden and quiet neighbourhood. Nice level driveway and close to all amenities. Would love to come back on future trips.

An inspiring couple

Such a welcoming and relaxing stay. Lovely home and gardens. This is the couple we aspire to be when we "grow up." They are doing the things they love and living life to the fullest. Hosts were there to greet us, take care of us, make us feel welcome. In addition, they were there to see us off - we felt we were leaving as new friends.


July 2019

The Perfect Hosts

We had a great 2 night stay in Parksville. Fantastic hosts who were very personable and whose hospitality was amazing. Level paved parking spot close to the beach and other tourist areas. Just loved our stay here!!

A very pleasant stay!

Eventhough Doug and Jillian had family over, we felt a very warm welcome. Doug was helpfull with the connection of the electricity. The place was quiet and we could walk to the sea. Thanks again! Henk & Carolien from the Netherlands

Quiet spot, kind folk

A fine spot in Parksville, room for both truck and trailer. We enjoyed a tour of their beautiful rhodo garden, spent the evening talking over tea and cookies, and a very quiet night's sleep. Thank you for your warm hospitality.
