We like to stay busy. We have been Rv'ing since 2017. Just a few trips a year for now but would like to increase our use of the RV to several months or up to half the year by 2025. We garden, golf, cycle and spend time with family. We enjoy travel and enjoy meeting people.
Jeff is very mechanically inclined. He does everything around our house and rig. My training is in accounting and have extensive experience in residential real estate.
We have a small, very small, dog. He is an indoor dog.
We have not yet boondocked.
We live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jeff grew up in Wisconsin and I grew up in Norman OK.
We have sold our fifth wheel and now travel in a 2014 Lance Truck Camper. Our F350 dually, carries our camper. Total length would be 24.3 feet as the camper adds 3 feet to the back of the truck.
A wonderful couple. We would welcome them back anytime.. And now I want another truck camper. 😉
A dear couple and their precious little granddaughter brought joy to our corner of the world with their stay. It was only overnight and we hope they will consider this a home away from home when they are on the road.
Pulled in through the gate and made a loop into our level spot next to the electric hookup. Large fenced backyard with grass & trees and plenty of gravel parking. Could have stayed hooked up but got in early enough to explore Tulsa. Enjoyed the river walk at The Gathering Place then enjoyed driving around old neighborhoods to admire the architecture and landscaping. Nice to visit with our hosts and always good to have advice from the locals! Perfect hospitality!
Hosts were so nice. They had a little box with local things to do which we gratefully used. Thank you for your hospitality.👍
We had a wonderful stay here. The hosts were warm and friendly. They gave us a bunch of brochures and recommendations of local things to do, which we really appreciated since it was our first time visiting Tulsa. Their property is located near many attractions, grocery stores, and anything you may need. They gave us a temporary lock code for their gate, which made us feel safe.
Great location for visiting sites in the city. Gated yard with pea stone, level parking area. Was great to have electric hook ups. Hosts are so nice, I definitely would recommend staying here if you are ever in the area.
Great host and location. Tulsa has some great things to see and this location provides a great spot to go and see it all. Really enjoyed the stay, quiet and secure location. Thanks so much.
Our stay here was fantasic! They are very gracious hosts, and even gave us info on the things to see and do in the area. We felt very safe in the gated yard. We most definately will return when in the area again!
Wow ! Great communication from beginning to the end. The directions were "spot on" and we were greated upon our arrival with a ton of tips and brochures. We appreciated the Electric power so that we could run our AC. The parking area was level and roomy. The bike / pedestrian trail that winds through Tulsa and the surrounding cities was just a few blocks away. Check out the Gathering Place in Tulsa. There is something for everyone. Thank you for the hospitality and for sharing your place ! We were able to get away from home and enjoy the outdoors. We hope to be back.
I am being prompted to provide review although I'm certain I did immediately afterward. Here I go again- Close to river walk so great if you have bikes. Host provided a notebook full of information and fun to visit with. Gated parking area.
We called and said we were arriving and was met at the front of their residence with a friendly wave,from Lee Ann. as we approached. Directions were spot on. She gave us a code for the gate so we could come and go as we pleased. They have a nice set up there. Tidy and clean. I was amazed at the awesome tree in the back corner.the base is about 4 ft across. I'm sure it has a story to tell! Would loved to have time to converse with them but being a short stay, we hunkered down in the rv and rested. Definitely a great place to book. Thanks for the hospitality!
Great hosts, yard, RV site, and location. Following directions from the hosts made this an easy location to find and easy access to the residence. These hosts are super nice and helpful. We sat together my first night on their back patio, ate appetizers, and drank wine. The conversation flowed effortlessly. They provided a tub full of brochures and magazines about diverse things to do in Tulsa (super helpful and I used it to find good hiking and dog friendly places). The site is level and enclosed in a large backyard that is completely fenced. The hosts provided a passcode for the gate. My dog enjoyed racing around without a leash and I felt very safe. The home is near to great grocers (Natural Grocers and Sprouts) and a variety of other shops. This is an all around fantastic BDW host!
Our hosts were very accomodating and friendly. Lee sat on the porch with us the first evening and chatted. She responded immediately by text to any questions we had during our stay. The parking area had plenty of room for us to turn our 36' Class A around without backing up.
Large, flat gravel parking area, electronic gate, easy in and out. Very friendly hosts. We will definitely visit again.
***Bonus*** if she directs you to the Sweing Machine Museum, be sure to ask to see the "Elly" machine. It belonged to my grandmother!
Quiet place with level surface and 30 Amp. Just a short drive from lots of stuff to do. Our host were very kind and communicated quickly. We’ll be looking to stay there again in the future.
Nice level open area to park with a gate and lights for safety.
Very welcoming hosts. We benefited from the "tub" of brochures of local points of interest. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the Vintage Sewing Machine Museum within walking distance; curator WK was a wealth of interesting information. Highly recommended hosts!
Excellent location for exploring Tulsa with wonderful hosts! We really enjoyed all the different neighborhood vibes and were able to check out some excellent breweries while in the area. We would definitely visit again. Thank you so much for having us!
We loved visiting with the Calypso's. Their property is perfectly set up for RV'ers. It's close to the freeway, has lots of room to stretch out, and is really comfortable. And our two dogs had a full acre to run around on, so they had a great time, too.
The Calypsos were so fun to talk to. They're both really really nice. I think we kept them up too late, though, lol. They even gave us freshly picked asparagus and basil from their garden which was such a treat. We were only there for one night, but we did take a few hours to explore Tulsa before we left. Mrs. Calypso recommended a visit to the Gathering Place park which we loved. But, if that doesn't sound appealing, she has gathered info on all the local attractions to help you find something fun to do. Just another example of their excellent hospitality. Hope to see you again!!!
This host is very accommodating and easy to communicate with. They have an easy and secure in and out. Thanks Calypso
They were very accommodating and friendly. Unfortunately, we were in town to visit family, so didn’t get a chance to visit with our hosts much, but they were super nice. They didn’t even get mad when we accidentally left the gate open 😬. Will hopefully stay again when we are in town to see family in the future.
This was our 2nd stop with this host, once on our way south and then on our way home. Such great accommodations and and even better hosts! We enjoyed a fireside chat about our travels and we will look forward to seeing them again.
Plenty of room on this level, gravel, gated backyard with gracious hosts! We hope to stay again sometime.
As always very accommodating and flexible. Do to conditions in Tulsa we had to leave early.
Thanks to Calypso for letting me stay! This was my very first experience with boondockerswelcome.com and overall was very positive. They seem like very kind people and I was grateful to have a nice and safe spot during my stay in Tulsa.
We only stayed one night, so we didn't get to spend too much time with our host. The spot was nice and was even gated! Our host had a neat idea of a bin with brochures for local attractions. There was also a journal for guests to write down tips for things they'd done there in Tulsa, favorite things from their hometowns, or other favorite places. We went to the Gathering Place at their recommendation which was awesome!
Perfect location, 10 minutes from Downtown. Flat gravel lot with 50AMP power. We practiced social distancing and was able to break bread. I stopped through town for some meetings and ended up staying longer than expected. Calypso was very accommodating. Thank you so much! You guys are awesome!!
We had a short and pleasant stay at Calypso. Access was easy and the hospitality was wonderful.
We highly recommend this host in Tulsa!! During the pandemic, they could have said no to us, but with strong social distancing rules in affect, they opened their doors to us!! Our stay was peaceful and comfortable. The host did all they could do to make our stay comfortable. They gave us thorough details of what Tulsa and the surrounding areas had to offer. They even offered their horseshoe pit to us and we greatly appreciated it. Plenty of room to set up your own outdoor games. We will definitely save this host and spend other times with them when we are in the area! They are AWESOME!!!
We were just passing through, but found the host to be accommodating. We didn't get a chance to interact much but appreciated their hospitality. A good place to stop if you are in the area.
Nice large level Area for even big rigs to turnaround. Our hosts were very accommodating and even offered us some herbs from her garden. We enjoyed visiting and wish we had more to time to spend. Hope they can stop at our place in Florida on one of their trips.
JEFF and Leeann are awesome. Our towing truck broke down just before arriving at their home. They helped arrange for a tow on our truck and then towed our 5rh wheel to their home. Wow!!!!!
although i wasn't there much during the day, i felt safe and secure in the gated back yard. I was very busy with my work, and my hosts were busy people too. We talked a couple times and i enjoyed the chats. On my next trip through i hope to stay with them again.
The was a wonderful stop on our journey south, Calypso were phenomenal hosts who gave us great info before and during our stay (including arrival directions, be sure to follow their instructions and not GPS). They also offered a wonderful box filled with info on the local area, things to see/do/eat...that was so helpful.
The spot is level and offers an easy pull in/turn around, with the gated entrance it felt like being on a private compound. We were very grateful for the 30 Amp electric and fresh water fill before we got on the road again. These folks were kind enough to let us stay over Thanksgiving and even shared some of the amazing smoked turkey they prepared on their own smoker! A true taste of OK that was delicious.
We greatly enjoyed chatting life and RV travels with you folks and can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely home spot with us. Thank you for a wonderful stay and hope you can get your RV out for a trip soon!
Very gracious and accommodating.
Looking forward to coming back.
Calypso was so concerned about our arrival, when she found out the I-44 intersection was closed due to resurfacing, she notified us with new easy to follow instructions... Ezee Breezee! Upon our arrival, she met us at the driveway with a warm welcome and a box of tourist booklets for the area! This couple was warm and engaging friendly armed with a wealth of information for us to make plans for our sightseeing. Our sightseeing included, Woody Guthrie Center, Center of the Universe, Golden Driller, Gathering Place, The Vintage Sewing Center and Museum! We wish we had time to walk along the River walkway to see the wonderful art.
The RV spot was perfectly level and large. Our overall experience was 5 star !
Thank You Calypso for a great first exposure to Tulsa!!!
This was a great place. Super close to the city and secure with fireflies galore.
Also lots of helpful information about the area and more.
The host was great! Excellent and fast communication. Definitely take note when they tell you not to follow your maps. 😃 I was only there for a night but they offered a box full of brochures should I want to explore Tulsa! They’re really close to town, so it’s the perfect location if you want to be close to things to do!
Very accommodating. Enjoyed our stay so much we decided to stay a little longer.
What a great host couple! Had a wide array of local travel brochures on sights around town ready for me to peruse! They also showed us around town and made us feel so welcome! We definitely would love to stay here with again on our next visit to Tulsa!
I am quite sure this would’ve been a wonderful place for us to spend the night. We received great communication from the host and tried two different days to get there but weather and tire issues kept us away. This host was very understanding about our two cancellations. We will attempt to stay here another time when we are in the area.
