Comfortable for a one night in and out city stay

We had minimal contact ... with Covid it's understandable... Adequate for a short stay

The wonderful Springfield/Jacksonnville historical district

Janie has been so accommodating letting me to use her property. I've learned so much about the history of the neighborhood, the houses, the festivities, and the very friendly people I've met on her block. Can't wait to come back when they have their block parties!

Thank you

This was my first boondockers experience and I hope they all go as smoothly. Great host. Very quick to respond. Directions were easy to follow and the spot was quiet and perfect for a night on the road. Hope to return soon.

In town

Beautiful old area of downtown Jacksonville. We had some nice walks with our dog and admired the restored houses. Easy in and out with our van, and our host was great.

Historic Jacksonville

Just spent a nice, restful evening in historic Jacksonville. A short walk away from several restaurants and a local bar, as well as old churches and a museum. There's also a small park and a frisbee golf course just a few blocks away.
Thank you Janie!

Great place to stay!

What a lovely neighborhood and host. Even though our host did not feel great she still let us stay in her backyard and even agreed on a second night when our plans changed. She gave us some great tips for things to see. It was very quiet and safe. Thank you so much!

Helpful and kind

This neighborhood is enjoying a renaissance. Beautiful large older homes w front porches minutes from downtown. I found it to be eclectic, quirky, quiet and safe. Just as she had shared. Alrhough we did not have a chance to meet, her directions and texts were very clear. Loved this very walkable area and hope to visit again. I have a 20 ft. Leisure van and the backyard parking was great. Thank you for the stay and great tips.

Very quiet

I believe this is the quietest spot I’ve ever stayed at and I had the best nights sleep yet. Even though I didn’t get to meet my host, she seems very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location, quiet neighborhood

I was only in Jacksonville for the night but was very close to the city and had the luxury to be parked in a quiet neighborhood from what I experienced. Janie was helpful for my short stay and I appreciated the time to refresh during my stay.

Nice quiet location in central Jacksonville,

Enjoyed being able to take advantage of this quiet and convenient spot and helpful host.

Nice stopover in a great little neighborhood!

The location was so convenient, just off the interstate, but far enough away so no noise. We were only at the Dollhouse from 10 pm the night of arrival to 6:30 am the next morning... We didn't have the pleasure of actually meeting JanieJax, but had nice discussions via text. We wish we had had more time to explore Jacksonville - we hope to be back! We have a 6 x 8 Runaway (Squaredrop) camper and we were able to park just fine.

Very quiet place. Went for a walk around the block to see the beautiful old houses. Would not hesitate to go back.

LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD

Janie was a wonderful host.
I so enjoyed walking my dog through the lovely historic neighborhood where she lives. I was able to drive to several beaches, less than 30 minutes away and enjoy the days relaxing.

Quiet and central

We really enjoyed our stay in the garden. It was quiet at night and was near to downtown. Also a few breweries in walking distance.

Had a great visit this this kind young lady.

Loved my stay at this young ladies lovely home. My rig was quite a bit to big but she was more than accommodating. Even let me set up right next to her home where DUKE could run free and play with his ball. Enjoyed the city and my stay. A definite must if you’re in the area.

A beautiful place in Jacksonville!

Really good stay with Janie, we had mechanical problems and she agreed to accommodate us longer without problem and gave us very good information to visit the city.

Pleasant stay

This was a nice spot for our overnight stay. JanieJax went above and beyond in being helpful, as I had messaged her asking for a nearby grocery where I could get a jalapeño pepper, and she messaged that she had asked some neighbors and found me three peppers within ten minutes! How nice is that? We were glad to meet her and get to chat for a few minutes.

Great Stay in Jacksonville!

We were there for a few days while we worked and our host was very quick to reply if we had any questions! We only met briefly but she was very kind and accommodating! Thanks again!

Convenient location

Great spot with lots to do in walking distance, we visited all 3 breweries located less then a mile away, and walked to downtown Jax as well. We also enjoyed walking the neighborhood and seeing the revitalization underway with many beautiful homes.

Quiet spot in the city

My host was gracious enough to let me stay on Christmas day. Even made me feel welcome to join in some festivities. Quiet spot especially considering it’s close in Jacksonville very interesting historic neighborhood.

Welcome to the neighborhood

JanieJax provided a quick confirmation and through directions to the location as well as detailed instructions for where to park. The parking location is on the side of her yard next to the alley and is best suited for smaller vans. Our 21 foot Class B had no problem fitting in the space. After we arrived, she let us know about the ''Run, Santa, Run'' event that was occurring that evening in the park nearby. What fun to walk over there to see the lights, hear the music, and participate in the walk/run with Jacksonville community. Thanks!

Very nice

Thank you for providing such a nice and convenient place for the night. The area was very quiet and safe. We loved the Carolers that came by last night.

Most beautiful spot in Jacksonville!

Oh wow is this neighborhood ever beautiful! We stayed here because we were passing through, and weren’t planning on staying there more than just to sleep but we ended up having to go for a walk around the neighborhood houses to ogle and enjoy in the morning.
Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a space in this area!

A very peaceful night in downtown

JanieJax has a perfect overnight spot in a very quiet neighbourhood in downtown Jacksonville. We followed the very detailed instructions to find ourselves a very quiet spot for the night. A wonderful stay!

Southern style in an historic neighborhood

We loved the beautiful historic neighborhood that our host lives in. Close to a large park and coffee shops and restaurants. The pups loved the large dog park. Very easy access from 95. Thank you so much for hosting us!

Pleasant downtown stay!

A very welcome respite after 18 hours of traveling south (from New England) to stay ahead of Jack Frost and Mr. Freeze! Our generous host made us feel right at home well before we’d even met face-to-face, including clear instructions on how to get there and where to park our 23-ft long, 9.6’ high rig (about the biggest size that will fit). We felt perfectly safe in a quiet downtown neighborhood that clearly is on the rise, and is within easy walking distance of great BBQ, brew, and other amenities. Many thanks!

Beautiful 19th Century Urban Setting

Beautiful old inner-city setting. Would stay here again. Host was very gracious, and is correct about size; our class A is 24 feet long and we push the limit of the space. A big thumbs up!

Peaceful site in the city

We stay just for one night. The host was very friendly.

The site is perfect for our short rig, lot of space. Very calm even if we are in the city.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Safe haven in the city

Enjoyed a quiet, peaceful night stay in a spacious (for a city property) backyard not far from downtown.

Perfect for a small rig.

Missed meeting JanieJax but she was wonderfully accommodating and quick to answer texts. Thanks Janie!!

Lovely stay

Our host was super accommodating and pleasant. The space for R.V.'s is private, with no traffic noise. There are some restaurants and bars within walking distance. All in all, very, very nice stay!

Nice quiet spot

Janie welcomed me in after a long days drive. I arrived later than expected and she took the time to guide me into the area in back of her house. She is very nice and helpful. I was hoping to arrive earlier to be able t talk. After filling my water tank it was off to bed for some much needed rest.
I left early in the morning to catch the sunrise at the beach.
Thank you.

Beautiful place and awesome host

We were fortunate to find such a sweet host in a beautiful location. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Janie was super helpful, gave us many recommendations and was communicative. She made us feel at home. Her home is in a beautiful historic neighborhood just a short drive to the beach. We loved it!!!! We would love to go back :)

Southern Hospitality at its Finest

Janie warmly welcomed us with open arms to her back yard located in the charming historic district known as Springfield in Jacksonville, Florida. We were delighted to be invited to gather with her neighbors where we sat by a fire pit and toasted marshmallows to make smores. We enjoyed conversation over sipping refreshments and learning about the historic homes revitalization programs going on in the neighborhood. The location was superb for us to park our travel trailer of 21 feet for an overnight. WEe felt safe and comfortable to explore the area homes that dated back to circa 1887. Many of the architectural homes in the district of Springfield have real possibilities to be magnificent again and many were stunning to see after the completed preservation. We highly recommend visiting with Janie and we look forward to stopping back on our return trip for a repeat experience. Thank you again Janie! See you on Facebook and looking forward to keeping in touch with you.

Best regards,

Chrissy and Tom
