Wonderful first boondocking experience!!

Eric was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable to be doing our first boondockers welcome stay. He responded within a few hours to our request and welcomed us with two beers in the snow as the first guests of the year. He recommended the best place to go for poutine and we were very happy with our stay :)

Actually never got to meet this wonderful host, but feel like I got to know him. Very communicative, helpful, easy and kind. While in the city I left my van parked in this host's driveway about 5 days and it was easy to get to, safe and a short walk to the metro. Highly recommend, total 5 stars! Thank you bunches and hope to meet one day. Take care always and until then,

Friendly host in good location to explore MTL

Urbansurfer was very welcoming and helpful in all our interactions. The street is busy but seemed much less so in the evening. We found getting in and out of his driveway in our high roof,extended Fird Transit cargo van to be much easier we expected. Public transportation is really close for adventuring into other areas of MTL.

Excellent host

I stayed in Urbansurfer's driveway for 4 nights in June, and was very pleased. I was coming in late every night (quietly) and sleeping late in the morning, but I was still able to sleep thru the 8am rush hour traffic noise. Great location. I had a bicycle, so I didn't need to use public transport... but it was definitely close by.

Super séjour à Montreal

We stayed for a while in front of Urbansurfer's house and our visit of Montreal was super ! The place is great to go in downtown by buses. The road may be a little bit noisy by the beggining of evening but is not awful at night. This is a huge city ! He is a very attentionned host, kind and open minded. He did everything to make us comfortable. Thanks again. Laurent & Adeline

Very well situated

He welcomed us in front of his door. We had a nice talk together and he showed us many things to do and see in the city. A lovely stay with water and electricity. The location is very well situated for those that want to venture into Montreal. You easily can use the bus. Thank you for having us.

Couldn't ask for a better location or host!

We were greeted with a couple of beers cooling in the snow, if that doesn't set you up for a good boondock experience I don't know what will! (Even though we don't drink it was the gesture that counted). Considering this was Urbansurfers first time as a boondocking host he was impeccable. His recommendations were spot on and he very kindly let us hook up to his electric to keep us 'winter warriors' toasty. The city of Montreal has so much to offer and the location of this spot could not be better! The transport system around the city was very easy to use and pretty much on the doorstep. Being on a busy road if you are a light sleeper I would reccomend earplugs but if you're seeing the city right you'll be so knackered that sleeping won't be a problem! Thank you so much for having us... We hope to return the favour one day :)
