Building a better life, one day at a time.
This off grid homestead has been a dream that began coming true in 2018 after a long search for the right property with lots of natural beauty.
Gated and fenced, mature trees, private pond, trails and easy access.
Currently 4 solar systems in use, communal bath house in progress with large open air shower. Spring water and finishing up artesian well with solar pump. Septic is present, for bath house flush toilet.
Multiple spots for camping to choose, from tents to class A.
Able to show and use solar to charge, and small generator for ac.
Very much varied, from construction to management, 12v wiring and solar. Learning more every day.
Two Small dogs, one young and hyper mine old and grumpy. Both are hesitant at first but just being protective. Good with other dogs and kids but prefer no large dogs or kids unless very well adjusted to rural life.
Preferred is on private land, but mostly rest stops or just side of the road.
Born in WV, raised in and around Daytona FL. Moved a lot but building permanent homestead in Hollister FL
The location was very level, shaded, and very quite. We did not have any issues getting our 35' Class A into the site. Clinecustoms allowed us to set up on a day he was not there, which he communicated with us via text. The next night he lit a campfire and we talked about RVing and other relevant topics. We found the host to be very accommodating and neighborly.
We very much enjoyed our stay with this amazing host at his location. It shows that you can enjoy more life on less of what most feel are necessities. Thanks again. Millerpond I & E
If you are looking to park in suburbia, at a golf course, or in pristine pastoral countryside, look elsewhere.
But, if you want to meet an intelligent, self-motivated and hard working young man, friendly and conversant, who is building his dream out of the rough Florida hammock (bush, forest), you will appreciate his hospitality and his in-the-rough homestead. No amenities or utilities, more boondocking then typical drycamping, with only a few neighbors in this rural residential area. If you are traveling thru this part of central Florida, give Matt a shout.
Requested a night. Responded to my request the next morning. Conversation was good. I have 3 kids and he felt like his place wasn't safe for kids. He let me know. I appreciate him looking after the safety of my kids. Maybe next time.
