This couple were indeed Sunny and were charming, friendly hosts, especially for this first-timer on his first solo RV trip. He got me up on blocks and settled in their spacious driveway within minutes of arrival. We chatted a while and got acquainted and then they and I settled in for a quiet evening and a good night's sleep. I would stop again if I have the opportunity and would recommend them to other Sunny City travelers.
The hosts are lovely people with a great boondocking site. 30A, easy access and super helpful. Absolutely awesome!
The host are super nice and invited us with joy and even took the time to chat with us and share their story, experience and suggestions.
They have a very beautiful backyard and not to forget the grapefruit tree.
Very much enjoyed it here. A great place to ground and enjoy some comfort before heading back into the wilderness!
Thank you to the hosts for such fantastic hospitality!￼￼
We had a one night pleasant stay very nice community love the cactus and palm tree. Our host gave us fresh fruit from their tree and we have already consumed some and it was really good. Too bad covid is around because we
could of sit around and talked more. Very generous and kind people.
Such an amazing couple!
They offered us oranges and grapefruit from their trees! Really comfortable stay
We had a lovely stay at Sunny City. The hosts were warm and friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. They were so generous to offer us electricity/water and citrus. We enjoyed walking in their safe and well maintained neighborhood. We also enjoyed listening to the birds in the morning. Couldn’t ask for a better host.
They are such a nice and welcoming couple! This is a nice and quiet spot to stay near Phoenix. Thanks for the oranges!
Loved staying here! Very warm & welcoming hosts. They even gave us fresh fruit from their trees. Walking distance to grocery store. Highly recommend.
This was a great spot for us for a night! They are such a nice couple and made us feel so welcomed. They even shared some oranges with us from their trees! Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.
Kind enough to accept a last-minute request for an overnight stay, really appreciate it. Really nice people safe area. Wish them the best
Great stay, very nice and quiet neighborhood. Very kind people with a lot of rv experience. Highly recommend. Thanks for the oranges and grapefruits!
I had a wonderful stay. They went out of their way to make me feel at home. They offered practical suggestions, help with my rig, and I left with a bag of succulant oranges from their garden. Best hosts ever!
These hosts were most hospitable. I left with oranges, grapefruit and lemons that I picked from their trees. They even offered to let me stay another night. Everything I needed they offered to me. I would definitely stay again.
Very nice people, nice neighborhood, nice driveway. You need some ramps to keep you level, but I got 30AMP power which was great on this chilly Arizona night. Thank you
Staying on the bustermurphy's Sunny City host site was great. Friendly but low key, so they weren't intrusive. We even got grapefruit from their garden! Yum! The site is so easy to access; not far off major thoroughfares and has a nice wide street for maneuvering into the spot. Beautiful, well-kept property with charming decor and a view of palms, fruit trees and cacti out every window of our truck camper. Despite proximity to a major road, it was so quiet! The only word of advice for people staying here is bring extra leveling blocks for your streetside end. Also be prepared to leave with the knowledge that you are new friends with wonderful people!
Very nice two day stay in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. Driveway parking was just long enough for our 30 ft trailer and we parked our truck on the street. Enjoyed a cup of tea and conversation with Bustermurphy and shared our common travel experiences. They were very kind when we accidentally bumped their mailbox :-(
Very welcoming and gracious hosts. Super quiet neighborhood. Generous with gifts of oranges and grapefruit. A pleasure. P&J
Very nice couple in quite neighborhood. We stayed to hit a spring training game. Was within 3-4 miles of field. Some dog parks within a couple of miles and a Safeway you can walk to. All this and 30A power. I’m the morning they offered another nights stay if we wanted and gave us directions to the nearest free dump station. Would stay here again for sure. Thanks to the host.
This lovely couple was waiting in front of their driveway as I rolled up. Kind and generous people, and they even offered an electric hookup, though I did't need it.
Great hosts and a perfect driveway for the camper. Close to everything but out of the way just enough. 30A service was right there. If you prefer to use your own water hose, bring at least 30 feet. Very dog-friendly people and a good neighborhood for walking them.
Heart felt thanks for the help you did for us last Nov. Both of you were special. Our trip has been (sucessful and) safe travels.
We are now enjoying our first RV ralley here in florida. The toe injury has recovered nicely.
best wishes and thanks,
Our hosts were both so wonderful and welcoming as we enjoyed a lovely evening visit with delicious cake and coffee. Following were two nights on their driveway in a quiet and safe neighborhood. With their suggestions for things to do, our time with them was such a great introduction to the Phoenix area of Arizona! Thank you once again to our amazing hosts!!
This is a really nice neighborhood. It’s peaceful and gorgeous. I woke up every morning to birds singing and fruit trees right out my window. I would highly recommend stopping here if you’re going to be near Phoenix.
We only stayed for one night and we unfortunately had to leave early in the morning. But our host was welcoming and nice, we hooked up to water and electricity. Just what we needed!
We enjoyed our stay with bustermurphy. They treated us like family. We hope to visit them again!!!
Just good things and more. Sharing lessons learned will always be remembered. Again, glad to have met you.
What a delightful and interesting couple Ivan and Bev are. They couldn't have been more friendly, hospitable and accommodating. Their location is in a residential community that was very quiet. I enjoyed our conversations. And, Bev also provided me with some tasty treats. They are terrific hosts. Thank you.
You didn’t stay here? Fabulous folk. Nice old kitty, nice doggie, but then there’s the Jack Russellguard dog!
Delightful stay indeed!
2nd Time Boondocking, and another wonderful experience! Bustermurphy accepted our request at VERY short notice.
They were accommodating, helpful, and fun to chat with.. Hope to spend more time with them in the future! Kaileydog enjoyed all the attention too!
We had a wonderful stay with Bev and Ivan. They are a lovely, generous couple that graciously gave us a tour of the local area and invited us to join them for an outdoor community concert. They are in a convenient location near amenities but on a quiet street. An RV dump is available at a nearby RV dealer if needed. We look forward to meeting up with them again someday.
Such a friendly couple! Great suggestions on things to do in the area and other places to visit on our travels. It was a nice level place to park close to spring training games and other amenities. Thanks for sharing oranges and grapefruit with us!
My stay here was a very pleasant experience. The hosts are very friendly and kind. I would definitely stay here again.
Our stay at bustermurphy has been absolutely wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Highly recommended!
Loved our time here!! Very nice folks. Love all of the plants and decor!!!! Blessings to you both .. thanks so very much. ^_^
We had a great stay! What nice and friendly people. Originally we had not play on going to Phoenix but we are sure glad we did as we got to meet Bustermurphy! Our kids are going to remember picking oranges for a long time! Thank you!
We had a great stay! They greeted us and helped us to back in our trailer. We were immediately offered to hook up to 30amp and water. We were invited to use the back patio too! Great location close to shopping. Orangewood RV center is about a mile away with a free dump station. We stayed to attend the AZ Cardinals game and it took us about 15 minutes to get to the stadium. Overall a great stay!
Very nice stay again! Actually Bev & Ivan had their neighbors over for dinner and and invited me as well! Lasagna, homemade turkey soup, dessert and Bev had fun cookie decorating kit for us to share. It was a nice time and we will stay in contact as I travel to Texas, Hawaii and hopefully back to Phoenix in March, God willing. 😊🙏❤️
Another wonderful stay at Ivan & Bev’s! Visited a little the first night, played some Mexican Train the 2nd night. Very hospitable and friendly as usual!! Plan on staying 2 more nights before I head to TX.
We had two good nights at their drive way. Wonderful people, good talking and we even got some nice grapefruits:)
Thank you !
Easy going, warm and caring hosts with fun experiences and laughs to share. They invited me into their home for coffee and ensured I had what I needed. I loved meeting this charming couple; I wish they were my neighbors!
We enjoyed our stay at Sunny City, as well as our conversations with Bev and Ivan. They have a little haven off the beaten path with hummingbirds flitting around... a great place to park for a couple of nights. Thanks for letting us stay, and perhaps we’ll see you again!
Had a great couple hours playing Nexican Train dominos with Ivan & Bev! Tasty lemon pie and Ivan installed new water input connector for me! I look forward to hanging out again soon!
Bev & Ivan already feel like family! God has blessed me with more wonderful friends!!
Ivan & Bev are sweet people and I felt very safe and their neighborhood. I plan to stay again soon!!
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
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:)
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!
Had a great stay, quiet and peaceful. Thank you for the hydro and water fill up. May see you again before we leave Arizona.
A very pleasant experience. Ivan and Bev are both very kind and helpful.
I am very grateful.
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.
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.
Ken and Jerilyn
Thank you for your hospitality! You made our stay fun restful and just downright nice. Great hosts and great neighbors too!
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!
