Hello Fellow Traveler, PLEASE NOTE: MY URBAN DRIVEWAY MEASUREMENTS ARE 17 FEET WIDE AND 18 FEET IN LENGTH. THE DRIVEWAY IS NOT FLAT. SEE THE PHOTO BEFORE REQUESTING A STAY, THANK YOU;) I am located between Gilroy and Monterey, a few minutes west of Highway 101. Travel time to Monterey/Carmel is about 15 minutes. Santa Cruz is about 35 minutes (depending on traffic). Access to highways 101, 156, and 1 is pretty easy from my location. Several grocery stores, pharmacies, a brewery, restaurants, and an auto supply store are nearby in case you need to get provisions. I live in an urban working-class neighborhood in Seaside. Seaside is located between Santa Cruz and Monterey on the California coast. Morning fog is not uncommon, but that keeps our temperatures pretty mild. You are welcome to boondock in my driveway. PLEASE NOTE: MY DRIVEWAY MEASUREMENTS ARE 17 FEET WIDE AND 18 FEET IN LENGTH. THE DRIVEWAY IS NOT FLAT. SEE THE PHOTO BEFORE REQUESTING A STAY, THANK YOU;) The driveway site is suitable for vans or smaller Class B rigs (less than 20 feet) and you will need to back in or back out. I am not sure if there is room on either side for slide-outs. Electricity and water can be made available if requested for a $15 donation. There is a small seating area in the front yard for you. No other amenities are available. Happy trails to you! See You Down the Road... Suggested Local Attractions:There are so many unique attractions and tours in Monterey County that it can be hard to pick just one! From historic sites to wine and agricultural tours to scenic drives, beaches, and even aerial tours, the sky's the limit! There's something for every type of travel interest whether you're looking to see some of the more iconic attractions like Big Sur, Carmel, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17-Mile Drive, Cannery Row, and Fisherman's Wharf or simply hang out at the beach...

Age:

55-65

I am a middle school teacher who enjoys a good joke and camping and van life. Details: My goal is to create a well-lived life that sparks joy! I love to learn new things, meet new people, and go on new adventures in California One (my camper van)! Top Three Expectations: 1. Laugh a little (or a lot) have fun. 2. Follow the Golden Rule. 3. Be gentle with yourself and others. Home Town: When I am not traveling Sand City's West End is where I hang my hat. It is an exciting blend of art and industry in the transformed area dubbed the ‘West End.' The community opens its doors most weekends with some type of music, dance, street performances, local restaurateurs, and food producers in celebrating Sand City’s unique ways of living and working. The West End features open studio tours, permanent murals, pop-up art exhibits, live entertainment, food, craft beer, wine tasting, and other activities. Favorite Boondocking Locations: The Carmel Beach and West End city streets...

    Super friendly host, moved car to street so we could park in driveway. Space can be tight for larger rigs, but perfect for our small class B.

    This was my first BW stay ever. Martha was super-communicative, replied promptly to all of my questions. She was gracious, giving info on local attractions. We had a very quiet, long, uninterrupted good night’s sleep. Thank you!

    The host has a great location close to Monterey and the shore, and a fabulously fun yard to boot. My daughter loved looking at the garden, the milkweed for the Monarchs, and the tiny library, among other things. The host was extremely communicative and helped us have an educational experience while in the area. The space was great for our 21-foot van, but would be tight for anything longer. We slept well and were happy, and are thankful for it. We highly recommend this host.

    I appreciated the host letting me stay on her property. She was very friendly and suggested different activities that I could do while in Monterey. The spot was relaxing and quiet.

    We were honored to be california1’s first-ever Boondocker guests. We arrived after dark so didn’t have much time to chat, nevertheless she was warm and welcoming. The driveway was too short for our Sprinter van but we found room on the street in front of her house and got a good night’s sleep. In the morning we discovered her entire yard is full of gardens including a section to sustain Monarch butterflies.
