Felt like Family

Dave and I enjoyed out boondocking experience with bustermurphy very much. They were delightful hosts and a special treat was coffee with them and their neighbors who are also boondocking hosts......good conversation and good coffee was enjoyed by all!
Thanks so much,
joan and dave

Got lucky on my very first Boondockers welcome stay!

I’m very fortunate to have found such a wonderful place to stay my first time using this service. The accommodations and company were first rate. I would and plan to visit again. I feel like I have friends in Phoenix area now:)

Convenient location in Sun City, close to Glendale Folk Festival

Friendly hosts that offered us 30 amp power for the night! They also invited us into their home to enjoy dessert, decaf coffee, and travel stories. Great stop!

Two Thumbs Up!

These two are great hosts, and wonderful people as well! They are so friendly and made me feel right at home. I definitely recommend them.

Great hosts, wonderful overnight!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these folks and "borrowing" their driveway for an overnight. They immediately offered a power hook up which was kind, but we declined as we have a lot of solar that works great in the Phoenix area! They are a very interesting couple and they have all kinds of hobbies that are fascinating. We had a good time visiting and having coffee with them later in the evening. Couldn't ask for nicer folks to meet. Especially as this was our first Boondockers Welcome experience.

Thank you for your hospitality! You made our stay fun restful and just downright nice. Great hosts and great neighbors too!

Wonderful hosts

This was our first Boondocker's experience & we were delightfully surprised at what a great experience it was. Our hosts were very helpful in seeing that we had water, power & leveling but even more than that, they were the nicest, most interesting folks you could find. They are very experienced travelers & lovers of life. We count them as really good friends now after staying on two separate occasions. We hope we will see them sometime in our area.

Bustermurphy and his parents were AWESOME hosts and new lifetime friends. We had some unexpected rig issues and it pushed back our date of arrival by a couple of days, but our hosts were very understanding and welcomed us with open arms.

They immediately offered us 30 amp and water. AMAZING!

We enjoyed a pleasant happy hour (or 2) on their back deck that over looked a golf course - absolutely lovely! Oh... and I can't forget the homemade lemon pie made from the lemon trees in their back yard. YUMMY! They have great stories about both RVing and sailing. These folks know how to live life!

The area is very safe, quiet, and comfortable and has a beautiful aroma.

We very much enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to see these folks again!
