About this listing
A magical 1984 Blue Bird Bus converted into a beautiful rustic tiny home.
Experience a little Alaskan magic by staying in the cozy Blue Bird tiny home. Nestled in the darling 1950’s Nunaka Valley neighborhood, this 1984 Blue Bird Bus (also known as Nellie) has an adventurous story. For over 30 years she ran as a Kenai Fjords tour bus through Denali National Park and a route from Valdez to Seward until she recently retired in 2014. Nellie was picked up and by a sweet little family of 4 in Seward and customized into a beautiful tiny house, where they lived for a year. She is equipped with beautiful reclaimed maple floors, custom wood interior, comfy sofa, full kitchen with dining area, bunk beds, queen master bed, flat screen TV with movies, mini solar shower, and compost toilet. Now Nellie is ready to share her magic with people from all over the world as a B&B. We are thrilled to host your stay, so please make yourself at home.
You will have your own private entrance to the bus and have the place to yourselves, reserved parking in the driveway.
Interaction with guests
My husband and I have lived in Anchorage for 7 years. We’ve had many adventures here traveling the state and are active members of the community. We love nothing more than to share what we love about Alaska with visitors. We are happy to help make your trip awesome, so if you need help, just ask:)
Other things to note
The bus is not well insulated, in the summer months it can be very hot, and on a cool day it can be very cool. We have space heater and ample blankets to keep you warm, and fans and a cold shower to cool you off :)
The bus does not have plumbing. But not to worry, you will be well taken care of and get an authentic Alaskan experience here :)
We want to make the best experience for everyone so we are sorry to say that we do not allow smoking or pets on the bus. If you have allergies, you should know that the previous owners had a dog.
This is a peaceful family neighborhood with houses in close proximity. We want you to have a great time while you stay here but please be respectful of noise especially during the wee night hours.
