Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband John and I have been retired for three years and are planning to travel to Nova Scotia in the coming year. We live in Nanaimo,BC and look forward to hosting boondockers as we are able. In our former lives, I was a medical secretary and my husband was an industrial accountant.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anywhere on Vancouver Island but also have had lovely camping experiences on the Washington, Oregon and Califormia coast.

Very Thoughtful :)

We were out of town when Brenda and John stayed. They left their site so spotless we would never have known they made their way here....except for the LOVELY card and gift they left on our front porch!!!! I had such nice email exchanges with Brenda and I was really hoping to make another new friend from Nanaimo. Now we just have even more reasons to make it to their beautiful part of the world. In the mean time....they are always welcome back here at The Mudbugs pad.

Hope to see you again one day!

WOW, great stay

Our Home Sweet Home were great hosts. They are a great couple. We stayed at their place 2 nights, and each day upon our arrival they greated us with refreshments and delightful conversation. They went beyond what is expected to make sure that we had everything needed for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The space provided for our small motorhome was paved and level and the right size for our rig. Their place is very well kept and the neighborhood is quiet. We very much enjoyed our stay at Our Home Sweet Home, we do not hesitate to recommend this host to other boondockers.

An amazing time

We stayed two nights with this couple. They both were lovely from the start!

Brenda made herself available for all of our questions and was flexible with our arrival times both evenings.

Their neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and we were able to plug in and fill up our water tanks. He also gave me the lead on directions to a free dump station.

Our Littles were delighted by their sweetness and couldn't believe that they weren't long-time family friends.

We would contact them again when visiting Nanaimo!

Great Hosts-Great location

Their place was convenient to the main highway to the ferry terminals, easy to find, quiet & needed just an inch or two to level out our rig. They had water and electricity available all within easy reach.
Our hosts were as gracious, friendly and generous as you could imagine. We arrived needing just to organize and wrap-up a long road trip, and left with a couple of new, really kind friends.
Thank you again for everything!
