A great couple , but weather and work limited the visit

Great couple out seeing the country and working along the way. Between the Kentucky summer heat and work we didn't get to share a lot of time together, but they were very courteous and gracious visitors. We really enjoyed our time together and hope to see them again soon. Maybe one day we'll get to go out their way!

Wonderful people!

This was the second visit with us for Papamimi and “Z”. They are warm and gentle folks and we always enjoy their company. They kept in communication with us along the way and we’re very considerate guests. They are welcome back any time!

Great Guests!

We enjoyed hosting Papamimi for one night.
We were able to visit with them and discuss Boondockers Welcome and solve some of the world's problems before darkness set in.
Seriously, nice couple. Easy to host.
Hoping we can visit them in California next year.

Great Hosts, Nice Location

Papamimi were wonderful hosts, area was able to accommodate our 28 ft motorhome and jeep. The home owners were kind, welcoming, helpful and generous. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and town and it's a short drive from the coast. We would definitely stay here again!

Thankyou!

With short notice and a Boondockers Welcome guest leaving the day we would be arriving, Lisa and Gary were willing to accomodate us and even extended their stay limit for us. Without them we would have not been able to visit Disneyland on this trip. Lisa and Gary were both warm and welcoming upon our arrival, offering us electricity and internet. Lisa and Gary, thankyou for your hospitality.

Thanks a lot!

we boondock a lot and we met mostly friendly people. Lisa and Gary are more then friendly. I looks like we knew them so long. We were invited for a drink, get very nice avocado's from there tree and visit with them a soccer-match (that what really Dutch as we are). We had nice talkings and hope really to see them when we come over to the USA next year. It was great to meet them. So many thanks!!

Wonderful people, lovely neighbourhood!

I stayed two nights at this location. My hosts were very helpful and accommodating. Aside from providing electricity and wifi, they presented me with some fresh avocados from their tree! The area is very walkable, with restaurants and shops close by. Thank-you both so much for everything!

Great walking in historic Old Town Tustin

We were welcomed by friendly hosts who kindly offered us electic hookups to the level parking spot on the street in front of their home. This is a wonderful location for leaving your vehicle parked and walking around town. There are historic homes, restaurants, shops and parks all within a few blocks. We stayed a second night so we could see the Christmas lights on the older homes nearby.

Awesome Place to Stay!

We only stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. They are a genuine couple who are very insightful and quite inspiring; so be sure to make room for conversation as they are a true delight. We definitely hope to see them again in the near future!

Fantastic!

Super friendly couple, who welcomed us on to their driveway with open arms! They provided us with everything that we needed. Really personal and warm individuals, we swapped RV/camper stories. Would have loved to stay longer! Hoping we get to see them again in the future (maybe in London!).
Thank you both so much!

Wonderful people

I was hosted by this very nice couple for a couple of nights. I was given the option of driveway or street. I choose street and they had a cord out for me and all ready, which I needed after I had a battery issue. The neighborhood is beautiful. It was only a few miles away from the place I was at a meeting 12+ hours per day. They were in communication with me and were still up to help me get settled. Very professional, easy to interact with, and great place. Outstanding place to stay!
