Our visit to this outback retreat ended in a big disappointment. Our travel agency booked the Wurlie cottage but after arrival we were told that the owners decide on arrival in which cottage you will stay. We were put in a room with no other facilities, no kitchen, no bbq etc. It was not even on the website. The food...

We stayed two nights here in a converted stockman's cottage. It was comfortable, had everything one needed - it was about 10 miles from Alice Springs, but seemingly nearly in the middle of nowhere.

Wonderful place to stay. Perfect hosts. Great breakfast. Peaceful surrounds. Fantastic scenery - what more can I say. Not hard to find and being out of Alice Springs is a bonus. A special place to stay.

Very friendly people, we even got a bottle of good...

It is only 15 km north of Alice Springs, so you can stock up with food in the supermarkets there, and do your own cooking in the accommodation kitchen, or the gas barbecue on the veranda. You stay...

We stayed here In May 06. It was a wonderful experience. The property was really lovely and very comfortable and yet still had a feel of 'yesteryear'. Woke up in the middle of the night and just walked out on the verandah...totally amazing night sky! The owners brought over a really well stocked hamper, which consisted of homemade bread, butter...
