Welcome to Nellie, or the 1984 Blue Bird Bus guest house

Theresa and Carlyle of Anchorage, Ala., are renting their 1984 Blue Bird Bus as a guest room on Airbnb. According to Airbnb, the company was founded in 2008 in San Francisco, Calif., as an alternative to traditional vacation lodging. People rent out homes, rooms and even buses as guest rooms for people on vacation.
A Bus Named Nellie states that in 2014 Theresa and Carlyle bought the bus and turned her into a home for themselves and their two children. After living in what has been nicknamed Nellie for a year, the family turned the bus into a guest room that they rent out to travelers to the Nunaka Valley area.
