It astounds me how generous people are. Lucas and Sarah are wonderful hosts to share their little slice of heaven with us. Easy in. Easy out. Walked to the local trail that takes you down (steep) to a secluded rocky beach to enjoy Sealions and a variety of birds. Real serenity. RT less than 2 miles! Before we left there for the wet coast Sara mentioned Tofino was a beautiful place. Appreciated the locals tip. Folks like them make the world a better place. Thank-you Lucas and Sarah.

A huge thank you and shout out to our hosts - it is a very special place. This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and I have to say it was very positive. Both our hosts came out once we were settled and introduced themselves, gave us some insights about their property, location and local information. It is a little out of the way in Merville, but with our toad it was no problem at all to get out and about. The site was super quiet with power and water available; chickens are on the property - the eggs we purchased at the gate were awesome. The weather prior to our stay was hot with no rain for weeks. The field is tinder dry so I would recommend that one use the hose and spray the area under your rig upon arrival and if using a grill to give the area under and around your grill a good soaking prior to lighting. All in, a great stay!! Again, thank you hosts!

Had a great stay here. We walked to trails in the nearby woods and also went down to beaches just a short drive away. Was very glad to have an electric hook-up as my batteries are reaching their end of life. The host was very friendly and helpful. We hope to stay here again the next time we visit this area.

This was a beauty!!...back to nature with lots of trees and off the beaten path. Host was very generous and down to earth, ensuring we had all that we needed. Would highly recommend a stay
