The year 1969 was truly classic. It reminds us of mankind’s first moon landing and the last concert by the Beatles’. Another part of history from 1969 is this school bus that is now converted into a luxury tiny guest house listed on Airbnb.
Built with locally salvaged material, the school bus conversion is located in the rural residential area near Sooke, British Columbia. Once functional as a school bus for Courtenay, BC, it now serves as a rentable space for vacationers.
Blurring the lines between a school bus and a tiny guest house, the passenger area has been fitted with a kitchenette, countertop workspace, sitting area, and a queen-size bed with loads of storage options. There are lounging benches available besides a propane fireplace. Furthermore, the driver compartment has been successfully converted into a stand-up shower.
The kitchenette includes a bar fridge, two-burner propane stove, kettle and a toaster. For breakfast, you can expect homemade nutty granola, a couple of farm-fresh eggs or baked goods made by the host.
The host will also keep you entertained with board games, cards, books and art supplies, while the outdoor space includes a covered deck that lets you cherish the scenic beauty of British Columbia. There is also an attached bathroom complete with an Envirolet composting toilet, sink with hot running water and a salvaged chandelier.
The interior of the bus home is adorned with vintage items that will make you nostalgic about your childhood. With a 19-feet-long and 7.5-feet-wide interior space, the tiny dwelling offers comfortable lounging with a sturdy rooftop to endure extreme weather.
I am more of a rambler than a junkie traveler, and there would be more people like me who would prefer the countryside over a casino. To all the wanderers in the world, the 1969 bus tiny guest house is available for rent on Airbnb.
