Hands down the best AirBnb I’ve stayed at ...

The Old School Bus is hands down the best AirBnb I’ve stayed at. Such joyous character coupled with thoughtful amenities highlighted just how much effort the hosts have gone to ensure a comfortable stay. The beds are super cosy, the towels are fluffy and fresh and the breakfast supplies are plentiful. We loved roasting marshmallows by the fire after cooking up a bbq dinner, and overlooking the sun kissed hills from the drivers seat in the mornings. Highly recommend a stay here in Bilpin.

Everything was exceptional!!

Everything was exceptional!!!. The items left for breakfast and other food and beverages supplied were super fresh and delicious. The choice was perfect. No one went hungry. Cleanliness and comfort were amazing and to be able to sit in the driver's seat and be apart of the "bush" a very special experience. The owner's have spent an incredible amount of time to create a very special experience for guests. Try it . . . .

A Wonderful Weekend Away!

The bus has a vintage charm about it, and everything was sparkling clean. We had all we needed for our stay, from the well-stocked fridge with fresh eggs, bacon and strawberries, along with plenty of pantry items, to the comfortable and cosy beds (the bedroom was our favourite space to relax and look out the window, or read). The owners had even left a special birthday card and box of chocolates for my daughter as they knew we were coming for her birthday. This was such a lovely added touch.
