Great Location. Easy Stop.

Hosts were friendly, offered electricity and water, and gave us clear instructions on how to pull up so that our slide faced over the sidewalk. We were able to disconnect our trailer and explore the area and visit friends during our 2-night stay.

We'll be back!

Friendly host, nice neighborhood

Friendly host who provided power. If you have a slide, you'll need to position yourself with your slide on the sidewalk side (if it needs to be out) was no problem to do so, just want future boondockers to be aware. A nice place to stay overnight on our way through the area.

Awesome stay!

I felt very safe staying in this gated community and the hosts were so welcoming! Loved hearing the stories and my dog loved the walks around the neighborhood! Thank you so much!

Super quiet neighborhood

Wonderful wonderful hosts!! I stayed while training for work and the stay could not have been more pleasant 😊😊

Wonderful Hosts!

The host came out to meet us right away and offered electricity. We had a wonderful conversation about family, traveling and careers and found out we had a lot in common. Our hosts were full of incredible stories and we really enjoyed listening to them. We walked around the peaceful guard gated quiet community and felt very safe. Would definitely come back!

Secure spot, friendly folks!

flyingcactus hosted me in the street parking spot in front of their home. This spot is very secure behind the gates of a gated community. They are very friendly and nice, and happily helped me figure out how to drive to my next spot. They provided an electricity hookup too! Thank you!

We had a lovely evening staying with these hosts. Parking was super easy for our 26' TC on the street in front of their home. They offered for us to plug in. We ended up chatting for a couple hours! About trips and life. They could not have been kinder & we had a peaceful sleep. Hope to be back or host them on PEI!
With great thanks,

Simply Wonderful

John and Debbie were lovely hosts. We felt so welcome and at home at their place. The estate is very neat and has plenty of space. We chatted quite a bit to John and have nothing but positive feelings about our stay with them. John gave us advice and assisted us with our RV (it was our first day with her). Thank you for everything! God bless you.

Heartwarming welcome!

Flyingcactus welcomed us very warmly, on our arrival he immediately went out on the street to guide us and offered us water and electricity! We had a very interesting exchange. We had a great night in a calm and safe environment. Thank you very much, Rachelle & Yves.

A warm welcome from John and Debbie for this Australian couple

We are an Australian couple who arrived in LAX. After picking up our RV we stayed with John and Debbie. What welcoming hosts they are. My stress levels were high after the previous couple of days, as we fitted into our new surroundings here in the USA. John and Debbie did wonders for my stress levels. This was very much appreciated.

Cheers John and Judy

Wonderful people

We had a great stay. The neighborhood was beautiful, safe, and a nice place to walk our dog in the evenings. The hosts were a delight to chat with. Thanks again for the hospitality!

A lovely host in a great neighbourhood

Staying with flyingcactus was our first experience with Boondockers. We had a lovely couple of nights in a great neighbourhood. Nice to be away from the central city and flyingcactus was able to help us out with tools for some minor maintenance on our RV. You are welcome to visit us in New Zealand if ever over here.

Great stay

We had a great stay. Very welcoming and friendly host. A safe, gated community. We were able to unhook im the street, in front of the house. We didn't get much conversation in with the host, but the small amount we had was pleasant. Don't hesitate to stay here!

Lovely hosts, beautiful neighborhood

Due to the inclement weather on arrival I unfortunately didn’t have much opportunity to spend time chatting with my hosts but they were very friendly & welcoming, offering me electric hookup etc. The parking spot in front of their home is on a level, very wide street in a beautiful neighborhood and my dog enjoyed our walks over to the the small park, about a block away. A very nice, quiet and safe spot for the night - thank you!

So friendly and welcoming!

Our hosts immediately came out to welcome us! We had a great conversation and they gave us some good advice on getting a solar setup. They also referred us to a close beach and a delicious pizza place. It's street parking, but it was very nice and quiet and we felt completely safe. We are grateful for such a great first experience with BW!

Wonderful beginning of our US trip!

It was our very first experience with boondockers and our first night in the US. We didn't know what to expect and it surely was better than we could have ever imagined! You showed us how welcoming and kind people can be to complete strangers. Thank you for making the beginning of our trip so remarkable, we are really grateful :)
Wishing you the best,
