Usually, a school bus is a means to a destination, but have you ever seen a school bus that’s the destination itself?

In a rural area in Sooke, British Columbia, Canada, a 1969 school bus has been converted into the loveliest tiny home that’s available for rent on Airbnb. According to its host Miranda, the bus sits on a landscaped garden surrounded by natural beauty; stunning beaches, pristine forests, and fresh lakes and rivers—all of which you can reach by walking or biking.

The immediate outdoor space, meanwhile, includes a covered deck with seating, a propane grill, a hammock, and a cozy fire pit. There’s also an outhouse complete with a composting toilet and a sink with hot running water.

Inside, the vehicle features a retro vibe with modern amenities such as a queen-size bed, room-darkening curtains, a kitchenette, a propane fireplace heater, a countertop work area, a small lounge, and even a shower where the driver’s seat used to be. 

The host informs though, to “prepare for an old school experience,” as the school bus has no Wi-Fi — but they do have cell reception and tons of classic board games, cards, books, and art supplies.

Also worth mentioning is the complimentary breakfast that Miranda will cook up: a serving of farm-fresh eggs, her famous homemade nutty granola, and coffee.

“Perfect getaway for those looking for an escape — a step up from glamping but the ultimate opportunity to unplug and explore the beautiful nature the island has to offer,” one review reads. Another adds: “This Airbnb deserves to be on the cover of a magazine. Miranda not only created a magical experience, but also put in so many little touches to make the stay extra memorable.”

Rates start at $110 per night. Hurry and book here before you get left behind by the bus.
