This is a 1969 school bus lovingly converted into a tiny guest house in a whimsical garden space.
We are located in a rural residential area near Sooke BC, just off the Galloping Goose Trail. (Km37)
Surrounded by stunning beaches, pristine forest and coastal hikes, refreshing lakes and rivers, wildlife and natural beauty galore. A 30 minute drive from Victoria, or approximately 3 hour bike ride if you’re feeling adventurous.

The space
Welcome to the Old School BnB Sooke!
What was once the school bus for Courtney BC has been gutted and meticulously restored into a unique space with a retro flare using many reclaimed and salvaged components.

There are lots of features packed into this short bus- a super comfy queen size bed, room darkening curtains, a kitchenette, a propane fireplace heater, stand up shower, a penny counter-top work space and a cute sitting area. The attached bathroom is an outhouse fit for a queen (but not a princess!) complete with envirolet composting toilet, sink with hot running water and even a chandelier that I found at the side of the road.

Prepare for an old school experience. There’s no wifi inside the bus, but there is cell reception- so call your mother! You’ll also find board games, cards, books and maps of local areas, art supplies and good, old fashioned postcards and letter writing supplies- So you can write to John Horgan and tell him to stop old growth logging on Vancouver island!

The outdoor space includes a covered deck with seating, a propane BBQ, a hammock in the trees and a private fire pit area with Adirondack chairs.
Lovely gardens and tall trees surround the whole area.

The kitchenette includes a bar fridge, a small 2 burner propane stove, kettle and toaster. You’ll be stocked up with black, green and herbal teas, pour over coffee set up, sugar/honey, spices, oil and vinegar. All of the necessary pots/pans/ plates/ cutlery and cups. Plus an outdoor bbq and the accessories to use it.

The fridge will be stocked with regular and non- dairy milks. Also ketchup and mustard.

For breakfast you will either get some of my famous homemade nutty granola, a couple of farm fresh eggs laid on the property or some kind of baked goodie. If you have a strong preference or a serious allergy, let me know and I’ll try my best to accommodate you.

LGBTQ Folx are very welcome here.

Well behaved, small, hypoallergenic dogs will be considered- enquire ahead.
