About this space

Meet “Happy” the bus! Happy is our pride and joy and we can’t wait to share her with you. With about 240 sqaure feet, it’s pretty easy to say we love every inch of her. We spent a year dreaming and working to convert her into the perfect home for us. When you step in the space you immediately feel all of the love and good vibes that radiate with in our girl Happy! Come see what it’s like to spend a night in a bus!

The space

Our babe of a bus is the perfect spot for you to unplug, relax & lean into the simple life. Happy is crafted with love and meant to create a space that really takes allows you space to slow down and connect. A space to connect with yourself and this big beautiful world around you.

Snug up in our bedroom nook, read a book, or enjoy your morning coffee or yoga on the rooftop deck overlooking the beautiful trees and ferns that surround you. If you’re feeling wild hit up some ping pong in our bonus space, “The Smokey Joe”.

Happy was a dream that we created for our sweet little brains, made it happen, lived it up.. and now for this next chapter we are so excited to share something that means so much to us with all of you! We’ve traveled all over the world and were always greeted with such kindness and hope to pay that kindness forward with anyone who stays in our space.

So if you’re looking for an adventure, come and find your happy!

Guest access

Happy is totally private with your own driveway + then she is nestled behind our additional carport surrounded all around by trees, ferns, and sweet little creek.

We also have a bonus room we call the “Smokey Joe” that’s a stand alone building away from our house but right next to Happy! (( this space is shared but we would holler to give you a heads up— what can I say we love to dabble in nice game of ping pong)).

Maybe just maybe if you’re good enough… you can wind up on our Ping Pong Hall of Fame.

*No pets or smoking inside of Happy or Smokey Joe*

Other things to note

Remember…Happy is a bus! With being a bus she of course has some quirks. To our tall friends of the world, you may need to duck a bit depending on how tall you are. For reference we are both 5’7 and fit perfectoooo with still plenty of head space. We promise to do everything to make sure you feel so at home during your stay. After all, our bus es su bus!

We have poured a lot of love and goodness into Happy to make her feel like a cozy little apartment, but at the end of the day… she is still a bus with lots of windows parked in the trees! So, you may encounter spiders or bugs during your stay. Bug spray is provided!

Side note: If you see a good looking dog trotting around it’s our Bernese Mountain dog, Chief. He is a big cuddly bear and just wants love. The odds of him being by the bus without us are rare but just know you might run into him. Sweet as pie that one.
