Nice visit!

Very interesting and was willing to share camping experiences with me. Learned some new storage tips too. Great guest. Would love to host again

Such a nice couple

I meet the nicest people on
Coastsider travelers were so helpful and pleasant I can't impress how very nice they were to extend their kindness to myself and my fur babies. Looking at my repaired extension cord and the empty ground where my berry bushes once lived will always remind me of Coastsider❤

Very nice couple with a Tesla / trailer combo

After all the visitors we've had (31 groups last year) this couple arrived in a Tesla pulling a 16' Tab trailer. First time we've seen that. They were very friendly, respectful and it was quite enjoyable chatting with them! Glad they had such a good time hiking at least 3 trails and sightseeing here in the Carson Valley. They're welcome back anytime down the road.

Fantastic Hosts!!!!!

Barbara was SO kind. Her place is steps away from a marine preserve. She took time on one morning to give our kids a personal tour of her beautiful garden full of native plants.

Quiet spot

Quiet spot. Friendly hosts. Great communication.
We were even luckily enough to catch some tide pools walking distance from our van with our morning coffee before hitting the road.

Our stay in Moss Beach

It was absolutely wonderful staying outside of our host's home. They were both so welcoming and hospitable. The neighborhood is beautiful and right on the water with plenty of trails close by. The host has a rich knowledge of the local flora and fauna and it was great chatting with her. Would definitely stay here again!
