Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband, Steve and I are new to the RV life, however we are life long campers. We purchased our 2015 Navion in 2017 and are breaking it in with short trips around Florida and the eastern US. We plan to take a longer trip out West when we retire (in about a year). We currently live in Venice, FL and have been Floridians 40 years. We love traveling and meeting new people.

Steve is an accomplished handyman with audio, video, networking skills, and a pro writer. He also knows how to build things. Terri is a retired RN and Massage Therapist. She enjoys cooking and is a great problem solver.

Terri's Pets

We currently have 6 cats that we share our lives with. They do not travel with us.

Welcome back at any time

Sorry we couldn't meet in person, especially since it was your first time boondocking. Hopefully our paths will cross sometime in the future. You're very welcome to stay at the 20 acre wood anytime that you are in the area.

Great Hosts & Location

Hosts were very friendly and have a beautiful location. I really liked the proximity to the beach, hiking and cycling trails and the City of Venice activities.

Expectations Exceeded

My stay at River's Edge Retreat was exceptional. From the location, which was very quiet and scenic, to the incredible hosts. Hosts were definitely the highlight of the stay. They were so kind and I felt very welcome in their company and on their property. They are great people, Hopefully Oliver and I can stay there again soon !!

Magical retreat, groovy family, beautiful bonfire!

Wow! Our host couple and their groovy family were absolutely amazing! Words cannot properly convey our gratitude for their extreme kindness and generosity. We are SO grateful that we have made lifelong friends! We look forward to seeing them again. Beyond all that their property is magical. We found a little slice of heaven.

Had the best time staying in the Beautiful shady yard of Terri and Steve. They were so kind and helpful and I count on us to be friends, real friends, from this point onwards. Loved staying here and feel very grateful!
