Larry & Lusie were a real pleasure to meet and talk to. Lovely couple.
We had just gotten home from a long trip which made it hard to spend time with them. We do hope they will consider returning so we can show them around and have time to visit .
Keep moving, Hugs Pat & Rudy
They stayed with us for a very short visit, just overnight as they were traveling on a time schedule. Really nice couple, would have them back anytime.
Every time we have new boondocks visitors I think they are the best. Well here again I have to say "These are the best". What kind people they are. I was hoping they would stay another night, but they had an agenda to "git them agoing" up north to a rally that sounded like a fun destination. I hope they come our way again. AFShore
Seastead are just the nicest people! They spent three nights at our camp on the Keweenaw peninsula in the Michigan U.P and we were lucky enough to be able to spend a few hours visiting with them. They are truly a delightful couple!
Had a great relaxing time and even saw some interesting planes over a couple of day.
Wonderful views in this air community. My hosts were so welcoming that even my pup adored them. All this and a hookup too! I highly recommend!
Very friendly and accommodating host. Decided to stay another day and host graciously allowed it even though he had intended to block it off for something else. Love being here and would stay again.
This host is very nice, pleasant and helpful. The site is interesting being next to a private airstrip. Would have liked to see some plane activity, but didn't see any.
This is a great boondocking site, the hosts were knowledgeable
of the area. There was plenty of level parking for our 34 ft Motorhome & my follow car.
They even sent us off with a pair of beautifully crocheted slippers as a
parting gift. Highly recommended!
We had a great stay at the flyers roost. Our son was very excited to see an airplane take off right out in the front yard (or close to)! We explored the nearby national monument castle as well as Sedona which is only 45 minutes! On top of it being an awesome location our hosts were very nice people who we enjoyed chatting with and the Mrs. even had a pair of knitted slippers as a going away gift for me! So so sweet and welcoming. Would love to stay here again if we are in the area!
Warm and gracious hosts, with great advice on where to visit in the area. Their spot is east to get to and mostly level. We even got the bonus of seeing a few planes take off. We loved staying at Flyer’s roost and enjoying visiting with our hosts even more. Thanks again for the stay and gift.
Airplanes were tucked away in private garages and the airfield was silent during our 2-night stay but we tremendously enjoyed the setting nevertheless. Our hosts were interesting people, the husband a longtime airline pilot (and sailor!) who was quite interested in our van-conversion project. His wife was equally pleasant & even gave us a parting gift. Hope to see you again, thanks!
We stayed in an AIR PARK!
Small gated community, not the best cell service but very peaceful! Hosts are very sweet and accommodating!
Larry was so accommodating. This location is amazing too! Fun spot to explore Montezuma castle and a great launching point to get up to Sedona, Flagstaff, and Grand Canyon without freezing at night!
Was here last winter as well. And the place was just as quiet and peaceful as before. Wonderful host, full of helpful information. Very friendly neighborhood. Will come again !
We felt very welcome and Seasted and his wife are so friendly. Safe quiet spot to stay with so much to see in this area. Good cell signal.
Highly recommend Montezuma Castle, Tuzigoot, Montezuma Well.
The location is perfect for exploring and the town is just lovely.
We hope to return one day.
Everything I could have hoped for.....charming and lovely hosts, a unique experience, and a safe and comfortable stay. Thank you so very much for your hospitality, I'll see you 'down the road'. :)
The Flyer’s Roost was the perfect place for us. We were able to leave our trailer and head into Sedona (30 mins away) for some adventures and hiking. Our hosts were gracious, generous and full of wonderful information. We will certainly be back!
We are so glad we stopped by here! The property is situated on an active airfield. Loved it! The hosts are both super kind, hospitable and very welcoming. Really nice people! We will definitely plan a second visit some time. Thank you so much once again!
We loved our stay here! I can't say enough good things about the stay and the hosts. They were so so kind, generous, and welcoming! The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet and we felt very safe. I hope we can come back and stay again one day.
Have a merry Christmas you guys!! Thanks for our slippers :)
We had such a wonderful time during our stay! The hosts were so gracious, and we really appreciated having electric and water. The area is beautiful and overlooks the city. It's quick to get to amenities like the grocery store, and a short drive to Sedona and other sites too. Thanks so much to our awesome hosts, we hope to see you again!
Location is amazing. Watching the close by air traffic was a first and only wish my sons were with us to see it. Very very quiet location.
Susan absolutely LOVES the slippers :) Thank you!!!
Host was very accommodating and great to gain new friends who we look forward to visiting again and hopefully in a post COVID era.
"Seastead" were great hosts, very friendly and loquacious, but also respected my privacy. Camp Verde is a beautiful spot, just off the Colorado Plateau near Sedona. Thanks folks!
First time staying as a guest. We really enjoyed the level site. The stars and view were great. Our host was kind to provide us a 15 amp plug. We will be back. As it’s just far enough to make a drive. And next time we will see the sites. This was a nice break. Very gracious host who we hope will visit us too.
What a wonderful experience! Fantastic people, great site and terrific travelling advice!
This was our second time at their place and it was great! Excellent hosts. Much to see and do in a short distance. We will be back.
Hosts were great. Very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Great sunrises and sunsets and though there is a airstrip just across the street was a very quite and peaceful two day stay.
Rainy weather kept us from visiting too much but we did get to visit for a few minutes. This is such a great spot with great hosts!
Seastead and his wife are the best! We picked their place to stay because it was very convenient for the places we were visiting but we ended up getting so much more. Great conversation and very congenial and inviting hosts. One of the best things about BW is meeting super nice people like this!
Wow! two of the most kind and generous people you will ever meet! The location is perfect for star gazing, sunrises, sunsets, visiting Sedona, local casino, watching the planes take off, and other local historic sites. They offered to allow us to stay a few extra days while we had some service work done to the RV and even gave us some super comfy slippers! We highly recommend vising this location and these amazing hosts. Thanks so much for your incredible generosity!!!
What a great location - safe, quiet, easy to find. The hosts couldn't have been nicer and supportive. And they are dog lovers !
Met me right outside and helped me set up my RV. Had access to electricity, thank you ! On their street the planes have the right-of-way :)
Host has tons of great travel information, not just in the Sedona area.
I hope to be back with them next winter !
Very convenient & enjoyed as always talking with another pilot.
Warm and wonderful people with a great location. I'm a former pilot and talking with the hosts and being right on the private airport was a grand time.
Great quiet location and very warm welcome from our hosts. What a sight to wake up to watch small planes taking off. Really, really enjoyed our stay here. Will love to come back when traveling in this region again
I never knew a place like this existed ! The hosts were very nice and welcoming . Beautiful view ! Saw a plane take off right from our rv . Very cool .
Host directed us to a nice site to set up. Perfect base to tour the area from and the sunrise was amazing. Interesting evening conversation with experienced and knowledgeable travelors. Very quiet nights. Hopefully meet again. Thanks so much!
Our hosts were both very friendly and accommodating. We had originally asked to stay only one night but ended up staying for two nights. They recommended visiting some local sights which turned out to be excellent. Their driveway was very level and quiet. We will definitely visit again if we pass through Arizona on our travels.
The hosts were very nice with us, we were able to have nice conversations with them.
The location is beautiful and secured with a private airport around (no noise!).
They allowed us to fill up the fresh water tank and connect our 15amp and the terrain is level.
We were supposed to be there for one night but we felt so good with the host, we decided to stay an extra night.
Thank you Flyer’s Roost!
We had a relaxing, enjoyable time with Larry and Liz at their unique home. The spot they provided us was perfect and they are both wonderful people with so much to share. Wish we would have had more time to visit with them. We highly recommend these hosts!
Flyer’s Roost is convenient to Sedona and to the interstate. Great place to leave your RV and drive your car to Sedona. The whole drive there is one absolutely spectacular view after another. Our hosts were most gracious and just a delight to visit with. We have had many great Boondocker stays but Flyer’s Roost was the top of the list of hosts.
We were there a quick night and was able to fill our fresh water tank. Thanks for having this spot available to rvers!
Larry & Liz are wonderful hosts, such a friendly and kind people. There property is very unique, we had a great time during our short stay! If you look out for an higher level in hospitality and kindness, then 'Flyers Roost' would be a great spot for you to visit, which you won't regret...
Such a special place. Seastead's were warm, welcoming and a joy to get to know. Met several neighbors as well. We'll definitely be back! Airplanes were an added plus.
Flyer's Roost was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. It more than fulfilled our expectations. We really enjoyed our coffee time conversation with our gracious hosts, a retired airline pilot and his talented wife. Both very interesting people! We are so thankful they shared their unique location with us.
Very very good. I practiced my English language
We had a lot common discussion ( airplane , hens, roaster chicken, etc. )
Thank you so much and see you next year.
We had a beautiful stay here, right next to a private airport (no flights while we were there) peacefully quite! Larry invited us in the next morning, which was a pleasure! What an amazing couple, so warming kind and generous, we have never met such kind people.
We are so so greatful for you having us and our little gift! They have kept us warm around them RV thank you!
We really hope you are able to get to New Zealand soon!
Lots of love

Larry came out to greet us upon getting here. Nice quiet top of the hill spot. Great views. Nice chats with Larry. He was helpful in given local info. Need be things to see. Going to have coffee and chat before we leave this morning.
Thank you. Will have to come back.
Larry and Liz were awesome hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed. Visited with them a few times and enjoyed our conversation very much. Arrived as guests and left as friends. Thanks Larry and Liz.
We had a great time with wonderful people. Very congenial. Pleasant conversation. Their home is exceptional. Must be seen to be appreciated. Small airport. We had a quiet and very peaceful night's sleep!
Thoroughly enjoyed our short one night stay at Flyer's Roost. Our host cam out and met my husband and guided us to park at a very level spot just outside of their home. We were able to fill up with water and connect to electricity. Their home is in an exquisite location where you are surrounded by mountains. Only a 10 minute drive to Montezuma's Castle. Watch the planes take off from the front yard, such a unique experience! Would have loved to stay longer but we were not able to get an excellent data connection for streaming for our jobs. Note, there is wifi connection and it was fairly good; however, our job is teaching overseas so we need strong data. We left the next day after a time of visiting and getting to know our guests just a little better. They are precious people with generous hearts. We are so happy to have met them and learned from them. Would love to come back and visit again.
My husband and I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple of nights at Seastead's wonderful location which is next to his home and hangar within a gated private airport/neighborhood. They are a delightful couple full of zest for life and people. We were fully enamored by their warmth, stories and generosity. Thank you for such a welcoming stay, Larry and Liz. We will definitely stop by again when in the area. Bonnie and Igor
Our hosts were very welcoming and accommodating, even when we arrived after dark. Much to our regret, we could only stay overnight. We wish we had more time exploring our surroundings and to get to know our hosts. Both captured our curiosity!
When we arrived, Larry helped us drop our cargo trailer and get our camper positioned and plugged in, but he had family arrive almost as soon as we got there, so no chance to visit. The morning we left, Larry came out and opened the door to his hangar! Inside were a sailboat and three airplanes.. One was in flying condition ,although Larry said he had not flown it for three years. One other was partially disassembled, missing the engine. The third was kit Larry had not begun to assemble.Will he fly again? Hard to say, but I would not count him out! Liz came out too, and had a nice gift for Patty, we thought it should be the other way around! We visited for about an hour, and it was very pleasant getting to know a little about our hosts! Very fun!
Larry and Liz are tow of the best folks we have met within the Boondockers Welcome network. They are charming, witty, and well read. Both of them are very engaged in helping folks who are entering the RV Nomadz lifestyle. Larry is quite the tinkerer. He actually has three experimental planes in various states of construction within the airplane hanger that forms part of their home, along with two ships.
Larry and I sat in his hangar in the evening and discussed how technology has so radically changed the world. Larry has an incredible range of experience, from flying as a United Airlines pilot to being a refueling pilot for SAC.
In the morning, some of the neighbours take off on the small runway with their own experimental planes, providing a most unusual photo shoot. We look forward to visiting them again some time in the coming year.
Our stay with Seastead at Flyer's Roost was beyond expectations. We leave there feeling like we have made some great new friends. They made us feel comfortable and we had a great visit with them. Thank you - thank you. AND if we make it back this way we will definitely want to stop in again.
Our family had such a nice stay at Flyer's Roost!! Larry and Liz were wonderful hosts! Very gracious and accommodating. They answered our family's endless questions and even shared some fresh eggs. We loved it and hope to be able to go back and stay again in the future. This was our first Boondocking experience and it was perfect.
It was a great experience to Liz and Larry meet in their beautiful living environment. A special place with very nice people. We are received with a lot of love and cordiality.
We still enjoy the delicious eggs of Liz her chickens. Thanks Robert and Nelleke
Our family felt very welcome and safe visiting. The location was wonderful! Larry even went out of his way to let us know a neighbor was flying in for us to see (a highlight for some of our kiddos) and Liz gave my boys a tour of their checkers and plants inside (highlight for other kiddos). This was our 1st experience with Boondockers and it couldn't have been any better!
I wish we had more time
This was just heaven
Super nice hosts
Larry and Liz are incredible hosts and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt almost like family. And what a spot to spend the night....parked in front of their hanger door at a private airstrip in Camp Verde, Arizona, and just a few feet off the taxiway to the runway. Coffee in the morning with Larry and Liz and neighbour Jim was filled with wonderful stories of their love of aviation. And Liz's chickens that lay "Easter Eggs" have to be seen to be believed...but we've got the eggs to prove it.
Wonderful hosts, had a great stay and look forward to coming back.
We arrived late and our host was very gracious. The next morning we toured the property and enjoyed seeing his plane and chickens. They even gave us some fresh eggs. Would recommend staying here.
Not only is the location peaceful, easy to get in and out (secure), and located within the Verde Valley that is close to a lot of natural sites to explore--Larry and Liz are truly the most kind, interesting and helpful people you will meet on the road. Their neighbors carry on that same sentiment.
You'd be lucky to share a glass of wine to two and engage in some great conversations!
We could not hear traffic from I-17 as other patrons noted. It really was quiet! They have chickens that lay healthy, delicious eggs and you would be quite lucky to be offered a handful or more. Our rig is bigger than most that come around and Larry brought us a plug-in that helped to keep from tripping. Water pressure is excellent. The airpark is a great location if you love personal aircraft!
We are really encouraged to see these two lovely people again!
We absolutely loved meeting Seastead. We felt so welcome! And what an amazing community - all the neighbours came by to say hello and invite us to join them for a weekly community dinner (we had our dinner already planned so regretfully declined).
Our hosts are such gracious, friendly people - we hope to come back and visit....and certainly hope one day to host them at our place!
I just stayed with Seastead and they were such gracious hosts!
They were flexible, accommodating, and made sure I had everything I needed and more!
I enjoyed meeting neighbors and friends, visiting, touring, hanging out, meals... I feel so cared for after staying with them.
They live in an Air Park where the houses have (or are in) aircraft hangers surrounded by a private airstrip. It was so fun to see the neighbors drive by in their airplanes and take off. Or come by to visit on their self-built e-trikes... It is the most interesting neighborhood I've ever visited.
It's also very close to Montezuma's Castle NM, which you should definitely visit while you're here.
Thank you so much, Seastead!
Seastead were extremely charming, interesting and accommodating. He responded on very short notice, She came to meet me at gate and guide me to the house because I arrived after dark. Enjoyed visiting with them. And he talked to a friend to get directions for me to a great boondocking site south of Williams, in the national forest!
We had such a great time here. We got invited out to dinner with the local community and made lots of friends. We felt so welcome, treated like family. Lovely spot with easy access to lots of local attractions. Hopefully they will visit us in NZ one day. Love you guys !
This was our first experience boondocking, and we were so lucky to find the airpark. We loved staying here and were so grateful for Seastead's hospitality. We felt like we were at home and can't wait to come back again :) Thank you!!
My husband, 2 fur babies and I stay on Seastead's property last weekend high above Verde Valley in a serene setting, with amazing views and delightful hosts. They even provided us with several area newspapers, offered to allow our 4-legged kids to run loose in the back yard and were sooooo very accommodating. We loved being there and hope to return soon. Thanks so much my new friends!
If you have the opportunity to stay at the airpark don't pass it up. Warm, welcoming, kind, the list goes on and on. We had the most wonderful time staying here and hope to come back.
Plenty of room at airpark. Nice to chat with Larry about his days as a pilot.
Larry & Liz provided us a very nice location in an air park on top of a mesa near Montezuma AZ . it was fun to see all his toys and we had great conversations about campers, boats and airplanes and how all the travel is possible.
A great place with great hosts.
Thanks Thijs & Rieneke
