He's a DIY'er and she's a planner. We are currently working on our yard. So many projects.....
One friendly beagle.
We live in Port Alberni, the centre of Vancouver Island. 45 minutes to the beaches of Parksville and Qualicum, 90 minutes to Long Beach (Pacific Rim National Park), 20 minutes to Cathedral Grove, 15 minutes to Sproat Lake.
We pull a 19 foot trailer with a Ram 1500. It is small, but has all we need.
We spent 2 quiet, lovely nights at Jasper's. Very friendly, helpful couple. Peaceful surroundings and I am sure it will be even nicer when they get all "yard work" done.
Warm thank you to Jasper who welcome us three nights on there idellic property. We felt welcoming and at home the minute we have met them. The yard was big enough that we could have our privacy and at the same time have good talks and laugh with our hosts. Thank you for your handy tips and for the best blackberries! We already miss the morning welcome of the little beagle. Would highly recommand these hosts! Thanks again, Cath & Frank
We were thrilled to stay on this beautiful property! Their hospitality was outstanding. Our kids were welcome to be kids and run about in the relaxing back yard. Thanks again!
Jasper's beautiful home and land is well situated in the middle of the Island. It makes it a great stop for a night or two while traveling through. But what makes it even better is the friendly welcoming of this newly retired couple. We were only there for a night but had a wonderful morning chatting and picking Black Berries from their beautiful garden. Our dog ran around with their litlle Jasper in the large backyard. A dream home! This was also our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and we are sure to do it again in the near future! Thank you for your hospitality!
We had a very nice welcome from our hosts. They made us confortable and were very helpful. The garden is very beautiful. We really enjoyed our 2 nights.
Wonderful property and great hosts. I would go back anytime. Highly recommended. Golf4Fun
We cannot express our appreciation enough or say enough great things about our hosts, a most lovely couple indeed. They were so incredibly welcoming and helpful, and have the most spacious and beautiful property. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and plugged our RV right into power (they offered water, too, but we had plenty on board). They loaned us their local hiking guide, took us on a beautiful hike to see the "Hole in the Wall" followed by ice cream at Coombs Country Candy, showed us the Mars Water Bombers (very cool!), and a hosted a relaxing evening around the fire pit with their lovely friends, and generally made us feel like family. We spent three nights, and much more than just a place to stay, we've made new friends. Thank you both, and Jasper (their awesome, friendly dog) for the hospitality. Your generosity of spirit is the epitome of Boondockers Welcome, and we're grateful for the opportunity to have met. Hope we get the chance to connect again, either the next time we're on Vancouver Island, or when you're on the road in your RV.
We loved the stay with this couple and got taken away by their dog Jasper. They are very friendly and helpful and made our stay very easy and relaxing. Enjoyed it!
We stayed at "Jaspers" for our 2nd Boondockers-Welcome-Experience, and it was the best we could wish. They are so welcoming, helpful and lovely people. As barch50 mentioned below, they went above and beyond what should be expected of hosts. As you travel in your mobile home in an RV, it felt really home staying with them. Thanks a lot for this great experience and especially for all the stuff provided.
We stayed at "Jasper's" en route to Tofino during the big Canadian Holiday weekend. They couldn't have been more lovely hosts. Their home has a beautiful property with a park like setting and an adorable beagle - Jasper, wild bunnies, neighboring horses that our kids loved. They were also extremely patient with our overtired kids upon our late arrival and met us at the neighboring Walmart to ensure we didn't get lost. Thank you for such a lovely experience. -Shani
We had the pleasure of being guests at Jasper's acreage in the Port Alberni area on June 3rd and 4th. They went above and beyond what should be expected of hosts to make us feel welcome. Having grown up in Port Alberni there knowledge of the local area was extensive. His uncanny instinct that I never turn down a bowl of ice cream and the subsequent conversation that ensued was most pleasurable, it seemed like we had been friends for years. They even have their dog Jasper trained to be a good host as he waited patiently at our RV steps to greet us each morning with his tail wagging. She even sent us on our way with a loaf of her homemade bread. We look forward to the opportunity to host them when they go on their cross country adventure, hopefully in the very near future.
Jasper has a great home, quiet location and nice flat area to park. They were very welcoming and helped us out with some email issues I needed to address. Thanks so much.
