Great Guests!

Vandownunder were very thoughtful guests, keeping us informed about their arrival time, especially since their dates changed because of weather conditions where they were. They were quiet and took the time to visit before leaving, sharing information about their extensive travels and their home base in Australia. Would welcome them back anytime.

Even though we didn’t get a chance to meet this couple, through our communication we recognized they were a lovely, respectful couple, enjoying America!

We certainly hope to see them come through again. They are welcome anytime!

Awesome couple.

Very courteous and friendly.
Storms came in last night so I opened my garage and had them drive their RV in to protect it from the hail storm that came thru.
Welcome back anytime 😎👍

G'Day Mates!

It was a wonderful experience to host this warm and delightful couple that hail from the great country down under, Australia.  We lived in Australia back in the early 80's so we are always interested in meeting anyone from there.  We have always considered Australia our second home.

We spent the evening chatting at length about our shared interest in traveling. Toward the end of the night they taught us how to play an Aussie card game. The evening ended much too quickly.

 Vandownunder are quiet and respectful guests. They are welcome back here anytime. Hopefully we will see each other again. Who knows, maybe we will be knocking on their door one day in Australia.

very active pair!

what a great stay with us... got to kayak to the manatees, a long evening walk, campfire sit with other Bdockers guests and enjoy a dinner with them and 4 other friends... great conversations on all subjects.. they loved the fact that we do not eat our national symbol, bald eagle, like they do, the kangaroo!!

Fun couple

We had a great time with the vandownunder folks. They joined us for square dancing here at the house and at our regular weekly club dance. They are quick learners and everyone enjoyed meeting them. Welcome back at any time.

Welcome to stay here again anytime

We didn't get to meet in person, but it was a pleasure to host them as they explore our great country. They are welcome to stay at the 20 acre wood anytime.

So much fun!

They are so cute and charming! They have planned very well for their 6-month adventure in our country. Delighted to have met them, and we wish them all the best on their grand tour!

Great guests from Down Under!

We both wish we had had more time to visit with this interesting couple, but we did manage one evening one the dock talking and enjoying the wine they brought. They would be welcome back any time.

Terrific People!!

Vandownunder are the nicest young couple. They were exceptionally respectful of our location and were very communicative; they arrived timely and were a pleasure to Host. It is refreshing to meet such terriffic young adventurers - no doubt they will travel far in their lives with such a positive outlook. We would welcome them again should they travel our way!

Super visit with an inspiring couple!

So when you get a stay request FromAVanDownUnder, you have to stop and wonder! It was really great to be a part of Josh and Simone's travelling adventure as they make their way through the U.S. and Canada. We had wonderful conversation with this young couple and gained a lot of insight into RVing as well as life down under. Our sons appreciated Josh showing them a drone--now they have a new item for Santa to come through on! We plan to follow their travels and will enjoy hearing about their takeaways.

Awesome Aussies!

Really enjoyed meeting Josh and Simone. Their sense of adventure and taking in new experiences is inspirational; I can’t wait to do the same when I retire! These two volunteered their time at St. Mary’s food bank while they were here in Phoenix—super cool. If ever in Brisbane, I’ll be sure to look them up. 😃

Wonderful Guests

Josh and Simone were wonderful guests! Communicated well, arrived and left as planned, very friendly!! They were completely silent during their visit so besides the obvious RV I hardly noticed them after our first lovely chat. I would highly recommend them to any host!
