Nice Local Couple

Always nice to meet locals getting out exploring close to home. This well-traveled couple are great guests.


June 2020

Finaly in Bergerac

Due to our first absence and all lock-down problems this couple used this first opportunity to travel in freedom and arrived at our site. We had nice chats and also provide suggestions for their journey to Antwerp. Hope they enjoyed the new normal traveling. Always welcome to meet again. Have a safe trip home!

We enjoyed our time with this couple. They are easy communicators and they are clean, respectful and friendly guests. We would happily have them stay again.

Real adventurers

Leslie and I had exchanged so many emails before they arrived that it was like welcoming old friends. We were fascinated to find out how they'd brought their own van over from the USA and talked about this - and so much more - over the days they were with us. Hopefully we'll see them again during their extended trip to the UK and Europe.

Good people to have staying with us. Discussed our upcoming trip and they politely suggested an alternative route.

Our new Road Is friends

We had a great visit. It is always interesting to meet Rvers with a similar rig, especially when they come from a state we have not visited. We hope to reconnect in their home base.

Wanderful guests

Enjoyed hosting this lovely couple for one night in our newly expanded boondocking pad we just had poured. They were gracious enough to give us the grand tour of their " Westy " and we loved it! They are very well travelled and we aspire to be as "wanderful" as them one day. Hoping to meet up again at their place in the fall on our way to the Atlantic Provinces. We would not hesitate to host them again. Good people.

Had a wonderful time

Had a wonderful time with Sunny27. They have a great location and a beautiful yard! I was heading to New Bedford Ma to visit a couple of museums. Stopping at Sunny 27 made the trip perfect.


August 2021

Peaceful Stay!

My hosts were very kind and hospitable from the first RSVP confirmation, and were very inviting upon my arrival.

They had a great spot for me to park, in a shady space and the area was very peaceful. My hosts had great suggestions for sightseeing on my bike and then even took me for a kayak ride at a beautiful marsh.

I am grateful for their generosity and hospitality!


August 2021

Nice spot!

Enjoyed meeting and talking to our hosts. They suggested some good things for us to do during our visit to New Port. Their property was very pretty and out parking spot felt private.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful spot!

Peaceful spot facing a beautiful wooded area, and our hosts couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. We loved chatting about past lives and adventures in travel. Hope to visit these wonderful folks again!

I was travelling through Rhode Island and needed a quick stop to sleep for the night. The hosts replied the same day and welcomed me for the night. They also offered my their washer and dryer for a load of well needed laundry. I would definitely recommend and stay here again!


October 2018

A quiet & serene spot.

We had had a long day driving and were so excited to see what a wonderful spot Sunny (Leslie) and Al's house in the woods was. Not only was it a quiet and beautiful but Leslie and Al were very gracious hosts. They shared tips on their travels and what we should see, let us tour their camper van but the best part was how comfortable they made us feel.
Thank you for the wonderful stay! We look forward to returning the favor in California!

Gr8 hosts!

Had a wonderful stay! They were helpful and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to stay here again!


August 2017

very informative

very friendly lent us a lot of information pamphlets so we could see what was in the area, out to assist us with where to park and see that we got hooked up. very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and sites.


July 2017

Rhode Island Recommendation

What a friendly and knowledgeable couple...they even have a blog regarding their travels. If you need to know interesting places to visit in the area then they're the people to ask. Al's always got several projects on the go but still put himself out to try and diagnose an electrical issue with my camper. However be carefull! He'll have you up on the roof cleaning gutters if you're timing's wrong....<emoji><emoji>.
Nice quiet camp spot with your own grassed area and friendly helpful hosts......what more could you ask. I hope we can catch up with them in the future.


June 2017

Wonderful Kind Hosts

Sunny27 couldn't have been more welcoming and kind - helping me to back in (I'm not elegant with this skill yet) and getting settled. What a wonderful setting they have. Such fun to watch her feed their fish and listen to the birds in their beautiful little nature habitat. Thanks again for sharing your travel adventures and hosting me. Best wishes in your future travel plans.


May 2017

Very accommodating hosts

Nice and quiet area with easy access for our trailer. They were quick to get power out for us, lent a hand with a quick lubrication for our stabilizers and even took out trash! This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and if all our hosts are similar, we will be very satisfied. We would definitely recommend.
