The spot that we have available is a 60 foot paved driveway located next to our home. We are located 3 miles off of a main roadway through Florida (Route 41) on a dead end paved road, 2 blocks from The Little Manatee River. Our yard is shaded by beautiful old Water Oak trees. We do accept last minute reservations, however we both work varied days and hours and do not carry our phones at work, we are both in customer service and very busy when we are working, so a quick response is not always possible. We will try to get back to you as soon as we can. Your best way to communicate with us is via text message or e-mail, we generally do not check our voice mail regularly or answer calls from unknown phone numbers. We hope this is not an issue for anyone, but when we are at work...we are working Suggested Local Attractions:30 minutes from the beautiful white sand Gulf beaches of Anna Maria Island. 10 minutes from absolutely stunning Tampa Bay sunsets at The Tiki [email protected] Little Harbor Resort. (Open to the public). 10 minutes to The Manatee Viewing Center in Apollo Beach. And 10 minutes to the Best BBQ,fresh seafood & homemade cheesecake in Florida at The Dog House & More

Easy going Details: Hi, we are Sheryl & Rick. I work part time in an awesome food truck/restaurant called The Dog House and More and Rick is a food & beverage manager for WAWA convenience stores. We have lived in Ruskin Florida for 6 years and are both originally from Pennsylvania. We are considering the full time RV lifestyle and going out on the road,so we thought that this may be a good way to meet some RVers and get some tips & advice. Home Town: We hail from Ruskin Florida, midway between Tampa & Sarasota (30 minutes either way) Skills or Expertise to Share: We know how to point you in the right direction for great beaches & stunning sunsets !

    We took advantage of a discreet and secure space made available to us by very nice bondoogess. This is exactly what we are looking for. We did not feel like disturbing our hosts. Thank you!

    I enjoyed my 3 + 1 night a Rick and Sheryl's Little Oasis. There blacktop driveway is level (if your rig isn't too long) and wide enough to comfortably Park your towed vehicle. Water and 15 amp electric were offered. Sheryl keep say beautiful variety of plants in the backyard and displays her hard work in the garden and on the porch. There screened in porch is available for lounging and chatting with a couple. Conversations with them are enjoyable.It is indeed an oasis and a great location for exploring the Tampa Bay area.
