Outstanding!

My first Boondockers experience and it could not have been better... The host was friendly, fun to talk to, kind and generous. The parking spot was perfect for my Roadtrek. The yard and neighborhood is lovely and peaceful. Thank you!

Super friendly host and beautiful property!

We had a quick stay here for an overnight while passing through. The host met us in the driveway when we arrived and even had a print out for us to see local restaurants, attractions, parks and even wineries! It definitely made us want to come back when we have more time! Thanks for a great spot to park for a quick nights sleep!

Peaceful garden setting. Level parking on concrete driveway. Lots of information was provided from the kind host about the area and things to do, places to see and where eat. I had a very restful stay.

Beautiful and welcoming

Thank you for saving our trip!
We very much enjoyed your lovely yard and cool weather.
My view during dinner was looking out on your roses as the sun was setting.

Kelley Anne knows what shes doing and is gracious and organized!
If you are towing or have a longer rig I recommend you walk in and take a look first.
We have a truck camper, under 20 feet long.

Great home base in Sonoma

This is a wonderful base from which to explore surrounding Sonoma. The spot is in a secluded driveway with a view of the host’s lush garden. I needed to get some work done while also exploring a bit so stayed two nights and hooked into reasonable wifi. 100%recommend this host. Thanks for the stay!

Beautiful setting and great host

This host site was easy to find and navigate to park. The host greeted me with information on local restaurants and things to do all around Sonoma County. This was really helpful and made my stay extra nice. A bonus was a beautiful backyard with flowers everywhere. Just a wonderful place to stay and a very nice little town. Thanks!

Beautiful wine country stay

Kelly Anne’s place is a truly relaxing and peaceful setting for a stay. We were there spontaneously for one night after cycling for the day.

The setting is perfect to relax, surrounded by a beautiful garden and is super quiet and peaceful. My wife and I appreciated the warm welcome and peaceful atmosphere.

It is Class B parking, so nothing larger and that suited us perfectly. There is water and electricity available however we didn’t need them - but they were offered without us asking, part of the welcoming hosts.

Thanks so much!!

Super Hosts

This was the our first stay with Boondockers Welcome, and it worked out fantastic. Our hosts were very welcoming, with helpful tips for local wineries, restaurants, and activities. Their spot is ideal for a small camper such as our Sprinter Van, and their quiet neighborhood location is ideal for exploring the greater Santa Rosa area. Highly recommended!

Wonderful stay!

Our 2 nights at Kelley Anne’s was our first Boondockers Welcome stay, it was absolutely perfect. Not only was Kelley very welcoming (loved the tips on bicycling in the area) but we parked opposite her garden which was a delight to look at. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful experience; beautiful peaceful property and special people! I appreciated my last minute stay and the opportunity to book another night. Kelley goes above and beyond by offering water, electric and wifi, and the printed places of interest info was fantastic!

Exactly what I needed

I’m super grateful for this stay! It was quiet and peaceful with beautiful plants and landscaping. I stayed one night in my 25 foot rig while I came to town to run errands for the weekend. Kelley Anne was friendly and so easy going and made me feel very welcome. The way the driveway curves and the way you have to do a sort of three point turn to back into the spot in order to pull out the next day in a forward facing position, you definitely do not want to be over 25 feet as they clearly state. At 25 feet it was easy to maneuver, but if I were longer it would have been too hard and would block their garage. Thank you!

Shangra La

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. I cannot say enough positive things about the hosts or their site. It is within minutes of as many wineries as you have the time, or inclination, to visit. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Kelley Anne and Steve. We were given a .very informative information sheet of area attractions . . WIFI was available as well as an electrical hookup. The location is quiet and the setting is beautiful and immaculate. . The RV set up is perfect. Each morning I woke up I looked out my window at a very colorful and well tended garden. When walking my dog I was warmly greeted by the neighbors who were outside and in fact spent about 35
minutes in conversation about the area and its history with one of them. The street on which Kelley Anne lives
has beauful homes with large 1 1/4 acre lots which are all kept immaculate with beautiful landscapes. My wife
and .I agree that our time here was in one word wonderful

What a perfect spot!

Such a great host in a lovely neighborhood setting. We were welcomed warmly and Kelley provided us with an info sheet with area attractions. The location and proximity to great things to do makes this a wonderful destination. We were offered electricity and WiFi too, which is always a nice treat! It’s a really beautiful setting and it felt very peaceful to be there. Thanks so much for having us. We enjoyed it!

Wonderful peaceful stay.

It was just lovely meeting Kelley-Anne, and staying at her beautiful park like quiet location. We slept soundly, and did not wake until 7am, at least an hr later than usual..

Lovely neighborhood, felt safe and secure and Kelley is a delight to talk to. Covid respectful. :)

She gave us papers with all the information we needed for the area. Just wish we had booked a longer stay!

Thank you so much Kelley-Anne, we hope our paths cross again, either here or in Ireland. 💚

Great location just outside Santa Rosa. Semi rural area, private and quiet.

My daughter and I stayed at Kelley Anne’s one night on our way to Mendocino just to break up the trip. It was a safe, beautiful, serene place to land. I would 100% stay again. Wonderful, wonderful!

Absolutely Perfect

We cannot say enough about Kelley Anne and her wonderful property. The property itself is like a park, with beautiful gardens and redwoods, and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, a lovely place to walk our pup. Kelley Anne greeted us and could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We stayed on our way up to the north coast, and it happened to be the night of the big thunderstorms in NorCal (which unfortunately sparked the later fires). But we were safe and sound, and experienced a beautiful and dramatic sky and night. Oh—and communication was excellent, too. Really just an absolutely wonderful visit. We loved it!

an easy rest

KelleyAnne was a gracious and helpful host who communicated swiftly with perfect detail. Her home is in a lovely and quiet neighborhood and the "dock spot" is up a long, private driveway. Please adhere to her length maximum because if you're longer, she's blocked! cheers.

Marvelous

KelleyAnne is a gracious host. She responded to us quickly with perfect detail and is so kind!
Her space is up a long, private driveway in a quiet and lovely neighborhood. Please adhere to her length requirements because longer rigs will block her garage! cheers.

Gratitude for graciousness

In this midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, one of my closest and dearest friends succumbed to stomach cancer. Kelley Anne graciously provided a place for me to overnight so I could say my last goodbyes to him while assisting with his hospice care.

Being able to tuck my van into the quiet confines of a lovely estate, and to avoid the July 4th frenzy, was much appreciated.

Delightful visit.....

Thank you to John and Kelley for hosting us last night. John met us when we arrived and helped us get parked and settled in. There was electric and WiFi for us and we used the back yard (which is beautiful) to enjoy a glass of wine and a relaxing Bit of reading before we tucked in to make dinner. Thanks again for the peaceful stay.

Beautiful place

We stayed at this beautiful property for one night. We were greeted when we arrived and they supplied us with water and electricity, what an unexpected bonus. They recommended restaurants and things to do around town and were more than generous with their time and information. We had enough room for our 25 foot van conversion but the area would not accommodate anything larger. Would definitely recommend.

Family Friendly Host

Stayed three nights with my grandson as a home base for taking the smart train and ferry into San Francisco each day. We received a very family friendly welcome. Kelley had lots of travel tips to share with us too. We especially enjoyed sitting under their big, beautiful shade tree in the backyard.

Kelley was an amazing host, perfect parking, with electricity and fresh water.
On the top of that she provides her hosts with wifi and a very informative paper of what can be done in the surroundings. Furthermore Kelley took the time to talk a bit to us and exchange about travelling, politics and much more. It was just perfect!

Extremely Nice Lady

Kelley is so down to earth and hospitable.
We really enjoyed meeting her. We missed meeting her husband.

Their place is lovely and quiet, with wonderful landscaping. It's also not far from a walking/biking/running trail along Santa Rosa Creek. I highly recommend it.

They are the most wonderful people to meet and stay with. We fell totally in love with them and their beautiful property. They have the greatest and warmest hearts and I hope that anyone who hosts them is also as warm and welcoming as they are to everyone! They have the most amazing garden to wake up to. It was a dream to stay at their place. We could not have been luckier. They generously provided us with water,electricity access and even internet access. I can't wait to visit them again and hope they come visit us too. We just could not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay in Sta Rosa thanks to them and how incredible their energy is. They made us feel like family. It's people like them that inspire us to be kinder to humanity these days. Bless their hearts!

You are our friends for life now :) XXOOXXO GRACIAS!!!!
