Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Donna and Luciano, a Canadian couple, living on Vancouver Island, Canada, on water front property.
We love to travel. We are members of "Home for Exchange", "Couch Surfing" and "Boondockers Welcome". We have been doing a lot of travelling and now are enjoying travelling in our RV in North America. We have a pick up truck and a 31 feet 5th wheel, and that should make us self sufficient when we travel. We are easy going with a good since of humour, and like to socialise.
In our property in Mill Bay, Vancouver Island, we can accommodate a small motor home, small trailer or truck and camper, or something bigger on the driveway. We can provide electric power and water and wifi. We are home for most of Spring and Summer. If you plan to use our place, please let us know a few days in advance to check for availability. Safe travels.

Wonderful hosts

We were treated like long lost family, nicest visit with anyone in a long time.
Gracious host, amazing people and dogs!

It was a bit of a squeeze, but Luciano expertly guided us into their parking spot. We were warmly greeted and warmly treated in this beautiful spot. The gardens were lovely, the views were great, and we were even invited to share the bounty of their garden with a stew prepared by Luciano. We even got to take some of Donna’s wildlife artwork with us in the form of notecards. It was a short ride to Victoria and Butchart Gardens, and the coastline is beautiful. Great place for smaller rigs to stay!

Amazing location and gracious hosts

Donna and Luciano - thank you so much for hosting us. We are sorry we came in so late in the evening as we really would have liked to visit with you and hear more about your adventures. We weren't sure you'd still be up when we came back from Victoria but hope we can visit another time and get more social time in.

Donna and Luciano have a magnificent garden and two lovely sweet dogs. They are so warm and welcoming - dogs and people :) The parking was fairly easy to get into with our truck and camper and their location is easy to find - a great place to stay!

What a wonderful time - Making new friends on the Island

Dwistle hosted us in August 2017 and we loved our stay with them!

We had such a great time together, enjoying good food out of their wonderful garden as well as good wine. They treated us like family and made us feel like home. Our dog Bella was warmly welcomed by them as well. They let us use their boat and fishing gear and helped us out with everything.

The spot for the rig was great, overviewing the ocean and with lots of privacy although not too far away from the house.

We couldn’t ask for more and we’d definitely recommend staying with this beautiful charming and heart warming couple. They have so many stories to tell about traveling and hosting people all over the world. They are still so young in their minds and we can learn a lot from them - we were having a blast. Thanks – we love you and wish you all the best!!!

Lovely people and great hosts

We spend two nights with Donna and Luciano and we overwhelmed by their hospitality. They treated us like old friends. Donnas pictures are amazing and Luciano's garden is an example!
It's been great. Thanks a lot!
