Grew up camping and exploring and looking forward to getting back into it now that life allows.

Fairfax VA raised Jacksonville FL is my current home
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!
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.
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.
Very hospitable host in a city with few choices. Great BBQ restaurant and brewery within walking distance.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
We had a lovely stay with our host. She was so helpful and accommodating and made us feel so very welcome. We would definitely stay again! Thank you!
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!
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.

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!!
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!
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.
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 :)
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.

Very cool revitalized neighborhood right near downtown. Easy to find, great location and lovely host. Woke up to birds chirping and a great meet and great with Janie!
Natural host and committed communitarian. Our stay was way too short. We're coming back - often!
