host Profile

Hosted By Joe and Jackie

Age:

65+

retired teacher; my wife and I finally saw all the states by RV (except Hawaii) Details: My wife and I enjoy the RV lifestyle. Have been renting RV's since 1978. Presently own a 1991 Fleetwood Searcher with super-low miles (it's still a "dinosaur"). We spent three months getting it road-worthy and back to almost original condition after the previous owner negelected it for basically 15 years. We live 10 blocks from the Pacific Ocean in Manhattan Beach, CA. Lots of things to see within an hour or two of our home: beaches, mountains, desert, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, etc. Our driveway is on a slightly uphill grade, but shouldn't affect operation of fridge. Can accomodate maximum of 27' length RV's. Both of our cars are garaged, but we can park them on the nearest cross-street for a day or so to accommodate boon-dockers. As of May, 2016, we have seen all 50 states by RV (except for Hawaii). Home Town: Manhattan Beach, CA Favorite Boondocking Locations: Lake Cachuma, Lake Casitas, Lake Lopez. But my wife usually prefers full hook-ups. Skills or Expertise to Share: Am fairly mechanical; had a handyman business for 10 years after I retired from teaching in 2002. Lots of tools on-hand if Rv'ers need assistance. Familiar with a Mac; not sure if I qualify as an "amazing" cook, but I cook a lot. Most of our guests seem to enjoy my cooking.

    I truly enjoyed staying in this lovely location close to Manhattan Beach pier and other attractions. The hosts were delightful and I enjoyed our discussions. Hope to stay again next time I’m in the area!

    I had a wonderful stay in my 24 ft rig. They helped me get it level and invited my pups and I to hang out in the back yard. Really wonderful hosts.

    My 3rd time at JJ's in 4 years and they are some of the most generous people I have met along my travels! PERFECT location to know your van is safe and enjoy the beach. I brought a bike this time and rode all the way from Manhattan to Venice beach and back. Wonderful trip! I highly recommend this host and hope to come back soon. Thank you again for having me.

    This boondock is located in the heart of the Manhattan Beach area (which is amazingly beautiful!) The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. There was plenty of room for our 18 foot class B. We enjoyed a wonderful night’s rest and would definitely stay again next time we’re in the area!
