I'm a single woman who full timed in a 25' Airstream trailer for 15 years, I bought my house in Florida six years ago. I have a Collie and am a very conscientious dog owner. I always pick up after them, and barking isn't a problem.
If I can stay at someone's place all I ask is for some electric to run my TV...... I have a satellite on the roof and tape my favorite shows. I don't need water or sewer as my rig is self contained.
I can do some tiling, carpentry, general repairs..... I remodeled my house, and my Airstream. I'm good on the computer too.
Yes, an elderly rescued, Collie, like Lassie. He gets along with all dogs, cats and people. Sometimes he comes, sometimes he stays home.
I like Florida, Texas, Washington, Oregon, California and Colorado best......
My home is in central Florida adjacent to The Villages.
My trailer is a 25' Airstream Excella Classic..... my rig connected is 46 feet but I can unhook the truck in shorter spaces.
Airstreamingypsy became our second boondocker quest....She and her very well mannered dogs were a pleasure and we all became good friends.
Future host should benefit from her good company and RV expertise....(she is no novice).
Airstreamingypsy was a wonderful host. She took me in and kept me for almost three weeks! ...when it was really needed. We quarantined separately together during the peak of covid 19... I didn't have a place to go (I full time in my Airstream) and she was a dream come true. She has a campsite with 30amp hookup and water right in her yard. It was perfect and it was such a treat to spend time with her and Sam (her beautiful collie). Thank you so much!! xoxo
Great to see you again, and thanks so much for hosting us again. I just wish we had more time to visit. Hope you have a great spring & summer ... maybe we’ll see you next winter again. Pats for Layla and Sam!
Nature. Stars. Good conversation. Boatloads of laughter. Respite. Thank you. I’m grateful.
What a great stay. Plenty of space in a fenced in area. Spent the evening chatting with our delightful host. So many stories to share. We loved having her dogs roam free in the yard with us and being greeted by them as we came and went. Kind of like home.
I loved this host before we ever met and love her even more now. What a treat it was to finally meet in person. After a most memorable evening and morning together, we couldn't leave without accepting her invitation to return. Hopefully soon!
While staying at Airstream Gypsy's location we were invited to have dinner with Airstream Gypsy and Marianne Edwards, the founder of Boondockers Welcome, and her husband. The dinner and the company were both down to earth and much enjoyed. We've had nothing but great experiences with BW Hosts and now we know who founded BW and how/why.
This host provided the perfect space for us! It was super easy to pull our camper into and it was already level for us. We had easy access to plug in for electric and water hookups were also right there. Her dogs are super sweet and a lot of fun to play with!! Parking our truck was a breeze and we could come and go easily. Love the close proximity to everything we need! Definitely would stay here again!
We've only been here a few hours and it's been like visiting with family. Just be pretty good at backing up if you have a 41' fifth wheel. We made it into the driveway on the first try. Helping install some patio stairs. She says this will take care of the 30 amp hookup 😃
We stayed two nights here. Hunter greeted us and helped us park. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. We have made a new friend. We can't wait to go back.
Stayed with her a few times and love seeing our old friend. We would come to see her even if we weren't staying over. Always have a great time here.
We had a great stay, got a wonderful tour of the area, made a new friend and learned lots about travel and boondocking. We hope to visit again.
Great host , also dogs were great ! Could have stayed the winter !
Close to the villages & all the shopping u need
I had a quiet stay friendly conversation. Hope I am able to stay again.
Our host was friendly and helpful. She took us on an interesting tour of the Villages. We have similar interests so some good conversations. And we fell in love with the doggies!!! She is good people.
After visiting Aistreaminggypsy last year we enjoyed our return visit this year on our travels away from the Nova Scotia winter. We were welcomed as old friends and spend some time chatting.
Hope to return again if we are in the area
Second time staying with a wonderful host. We greatly enjoyed catching up over our fire roasted hot dogs. Easy access & safely gated parking spot.
We had a great stay with Airstreaminggypsy. After she got us settled in, she took us on a short tour of the area. Her dogs are wonderful and very well behaved. She even gave us two of her pairs (which were delicious!). Looking forward to coming back by for a stay!
Sunshine, blue sky, and a cup of coffee. I’m surrounded by birds and the gentle sounds of a neighborhood waking up. My stay here has been restorative. The area is accessible to all the necessities, but more importantly, it is a respite from the road. Shared a meal with this generous host, engaged in lively conversation with her, and enjoyed the visits from her two dogs. This area of Florida is gorgeous! Thank you for everything!
We can not say enough wonderful things about our host! We were greeted at the driveway,thrilled to have us staying there. Helped us back in and set up. A nice quiet area to stay in. We will have many great memories of RV talk, seeing the local sites and dinners with our host. A great place to stay!
"H" is a great host. Super friendly and helpful. Accommodations are first class. Sam & Layla are great assistants. Definitely plan to be back for more great Boondocking. Thanks "H" !
Our host was one of the most gracious individuals we have ever encountered in our travels. She offered many parking options and resourceful ideas for making our stay the pleasant one it was. She went out of her way to make sure we had all we needed. Great host!
Hunter was great as usual!
She helped us out of a bit of a jam as our black tank fell off the bottom of the motorhome 3 miles from her house. Came and rescued Sara. Also recommended a trustworthy shop to get an engine tune up. Even after all that drama she still invited us back!
She even listened to band practice patiently, with no wincing which is good for our self confidence 😁
As always, highly recommended!
All that you looking for from a host is Airstreamingypsy! Nice stay, quiet place with a little shadow!
If you want to be in or near the Villages, Hunter is the best host!
Wanted to be close to The Villages and I am. Cannot say enough good things about staying at Hunter's location, very comfortable, very friendly dogs that have taken to guarding me and my trailer, great location, just avoid heading to West when you hear the train.
What a wonderful stay! Hunter is a fun, strong, adventurous woman. I 2nd everything that was said here: level quiet secure RV pad, great stories and conversation, interesting tour of Villages and two vintages trailers, great pups! Wish I could've stayed longer.
This was our first Bondockers Welcome stay and it couldn't have been better. Hunter was a super host. Wonderful conversations and we really enjoyed our guided tour of the area. Highly recommended!!
My wife & I needed a safe place to overnight on our way from Tampa to the Okefenokee Swamp and this site fit the bill. I think usually boondockers park inside a gated area but we were allowed to park in the driveway which made it easy for us to get in and out without any fuss. There was a train that we could hear not too far away but it seemed like we stopped hearing it after 11PM - so we slept well.
H is a great host and has a very nice location. Convenient , quiet and super friendly. Great pups as well. I fully expect to return. Thanks H!
We parked With Airstreamingypsy for a few days and loved her quiet location. We have no pets but enjoyed her two dogs.
About as nice as you could ever ask. Very kind person who allowed us both water and electric.
Thank You so much!
Bruce & Gloria
We understand why Airstreamingypsy has earned the B.W. distinction of ULTRA HOST ! Well deserved. Thanks so much & Happy Trails always.
We stayed at Hunter’s’s home for two nights. She is a wonderful woman and loved to hear many different stories about RVing, renovations, dogs, horses, and many adventures in her life. We have met a new friend and hope she is able to come and visit us in Canada sometime. We shared a dinner that lasted many hours. So much to talk about. She has very nice dogs that we enjoyed playing with. It was nice to visit the Villages again.
We hope we will be able to visit again. Thank you very much Hunter.
Joan and Murray
We were both completely charmed by this wonderful hostess. We had a great time getting a tour of the Villages, hanging out and hearing good stories. The spot itself is awesome as well - security fence, flat concete slab, roomy, 30 amp power and water and 2 sweet dogs.
The only bummer is that we were only passing through this time, but we will absolutely be back.
Really grateful to come down and revisit Airstreaming gypsy and her well behaved dogs. Such a overall laid back visit. We look forward to them all coming up and visiting up at our place.
One of the best hosts around. Very accomodating and likes to share meals and conversation, She loves you to go with her while she walks her dogs. This is our third visit. Great toir guide. Has become on of our closest friends. Thank you again. Until next time
Virginia and Bob
We stayed on Hunter’s property for 3 nights. The location was perfect for our needs as we were in the area to visit friends at The Villages. Similar to Sarah Palin seeing Russia from her house, you can see roofs of The Villages homes from Hunter’s property! (I’m sure Hunter will appreciate the joke!) Hunter was a great host, outside when we arrived to direct us into our space, helping with the electrical hookup, and the evening beer and conversation was easy and fun. We feel like we’ve made a friend and look forward to returning to her property! Thanks very much, Hunter!
Hunter is one of those rare individuals you encounter when RVing and boondocking. She has RVed for a 15 year stretch before setting down in a sticks and bricks environment to look after her rescue dogs. Hunter is very engaging and incredibly interesting, especially when one learns about her early experiences on the road when she started in 1999. She has developed critical competencies in remodeling homes, RVs, Travel Trailers, and any mechanical/electrical device you may encounter. Yet, she is very gentle with her dogs and is a very unique, independent individual. Her generosity is very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing her and her dogs again in the coming year.
We stayed here one night and spend an evening meal with the host and other boondockers who where staying there. It was a relaxing evening with lots of stories about mutual Boondocking experiences.
This is our second stay and not our last.We have become friends. From the moment you land at her location you are welcomed with opens arms from the host and the two dogs who will lick you and love you. We had a mini potluck with other boondockers and the host as well as many walks, to the park with the dogs. A Super host
Thank you for your friendship
Bob and Virginia
Great conversation, a wonderful, wonderful host. Nice being around another RV'er and we really appreciate you opening up your home to us. We will be sure to stop by next time we're in town. BTW, Always glad to see LayLa, but also loved your new collie, Sam. Bob and Tina
My family had a wonderful overnight stay on our way to Walt Disney World in Orlando, about one hour away. The hostess was very gracious and gave us a tour of her RVs. It Was a great experience, we would stay here again. Thank you for having us.
We stayed for three nights with this host, and we enjoyed it immensely!
She is such a sweet and considerate person, and she made us feel so welcome! She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed! I hope we can meet again! :-)
Thank you Hunter and Leah for being such wonderful hosts on our overnight stop with you on our way to Fort Myers. You made us feel so welcome and we really appreciated the guided tour of "the Villages". Highly recommend this Host.
We have been hosted for one night in December on our Road Trip in North America.
Hunter replied quickly and although was about to go out for dinner, has accepted my request.
We had an interesting conversation later that evening.
Wonderful place to visit. We were there overnight and Hunter made us feel very welcome.
Quiet neighborhood and gracious host.
We felt completely welcome and even used the shop for a project.
Talking about past adventures and enjoying a walk with the dogs were great.
We really enjoyed our host and our short overnight stay seemed long enough to recognize that we made a new friend.
Next day we all went to the park and walked with Layla. We hope to come visit again, but also hope this Airstreaming Gypsy comes up for a stay with us.
Highly recommend this host...
We had very nice conversations with Hunter. Her place was in a nice quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay here when we are in the area again!
A very gracious host who made our stay most enjoyable. Very personable and we felt very safe here. Her dog, Layla, is a sweetheart. We will definitely try to stay here again. This was our first boondocker experience and it was beyond our expectations. Thank you Airsteamingypsy!
Perfect spot to relax. Hunter is warm and welcoming and fun! Loved staying here. And her dog Layla is soooo sweet.
This was our second stay with this host and this time was just as good (if not better) than the first. Just like before, the host was very friendly and accommodating. We look forward to seeing her again next time we're in the area.
We had a nice experience, Hunter has a very nice, quiet and very accomodating set up. This was our first time to use boondockers welcome and we're happy that it was a positive experience!
I didn't stay long. She is a better carpenter/remodeler than I. Good visit!
What a great stay! The host was very friendly and accommodating. We couldn't have hoped for a better stay for our first visit to a Boodockers Welcome site. We are already looking forward to another visit with Airstreamingypsy and her sweet dog.
This is what Boondookers Welcome is all about. It was great to meet our host, have a comfortable and safe place to stay and make a new friend. Actually we made A new puppy friend too. We will be looking forward to visiting our host again on our way home. See ya😀
What a awesome host!!!! Has travelled all through the country and gave us lots of ideas. Went out of her way to make us welcome, thoroughly enjoyed our joint dinners together, one was even with another boondocker. She showed us around the area which was fabulous and we have now made a new friend. Hope to visit again when we pass by. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Airstreamingypsy is one Boondockers Welcome member you do not want to miss!
She was recommended by another member and I owe him a big thank you!
Her place is peaceful and quiet...and huge! She very generously hooked us up to electric...yay, no more dead coach battery in the morning...and there was water and WiFi...all the comforts of home.
I have no tow vehicle but seeing the sights was no problem...our hostess drove us around, even showed us the park we were headed for...and then cooked up a delicious dinner...a very generous lady. Creative too! Who would think of creating a porch chandelier out of baby cot bedsprings??!!
Her dog is very sweet and when we were leaving on day 3, it looked as if a bit of love interest was happening between her girl and my boy...tails were wagging. I do hope we can visit again and stay even longer. We had a blast!
This was our first boondocking experience and we couldn't have asked for a better host! She was wonderfully accommodating and helpful. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and went above and beyond in every department: giving us a tour of the area, assisting us in running errands and even making us dinner! What a wonderful lady and a great stay! Im sure we will be back to visit our new friend!
Planned on staying for one night, but we were so comfortable and welcomed that we stayed for a few. Wonderful hostess who took time out of her day to show us the area. Very friendly and has lived an interesting RV lifestyle. We feel that we have met a new friend, someone we will definitely see again!
We were lucky enough to catch airstreamingypsy when she was not on the road and we had a great time. Her spot was top notch and I feel like we've made a new and true friend. Her pups were great and the location is convenient to everything in the area. Thanks and see you soon!
I joined Boondockers not just to find free places to park but, to meet people that I'll want to visit again and again.
I've definitely be seeing this Gypsy again :)
Airstreamgypsy is a wonderful host. My wife and I both enjoyed her company. Nice quiet place to stay. This lady has so many interests that we where amazed. Her dog Layla is easy to like. Wish we could have spent more time at this location. Thanks.
