To have the experience of staying underground, this is a nice place. The apartment was clean and spacious, and the hosts very friendly. Just ask and they are only too pleased to help with sightseeing or dining advice.

The apartment was great. Underground was a good experience. No aircon because your underground you don't need it. You do have ceiling fans. 2 bedroom with lounge and kitchen and bathroom and dining. Was spacious and had everything we needed. The price was good too. Not in centre of town but not too far too walk. There are no taxis...

Kitchen is stocked with ample crockery and cutlery, and has a full size fridge. 6 seater dining table. Very large lounge area, one main bedroom with a king size...

We stayed here two nights. The location is great, not central to town (but not a particularly long walk), but great for views at sunset and sunrise. The accommodation is good...spacious and comfortably furnished with enough kitchenware to be able to be truly self-sufficient. Internet was pretty good too.The first night there was a town power outage...which was fine, all...

Not luxurious by any standard, but again, neither is the price, it is the friendly hosts and cleanliness that make this place a worthwhile stay. Had trouble working out the television, then gave up, while there is mostly workable WiFi if you sit outside where the WiFi can connect. An above ground pool and small play area for kids seem...

One night stay after a trip to the outback. Staff very friendly and informative, rooms very clean and beds comfortable. Staff very accommodating to change our room to be more suitable for two couples. WIFI was reliable and fast even with 4 adults catching up on the world after two weeks with no service.

For me, this place ticks all the boxes. It's perfectly located in a quiet area but minutes to everything in town. It's got an exceptional view on the desert. The underground apartment is vast, clean, comfy and well equipped. Linda and Tony are very friendly, helpful and a mine of information (sorry, I could not resist). I recommend to anyone.

Good place, friendly and helpful hosts, comfortable and well appointed, good no-fuss wi-fi so we had happy teens, well located, could walk up on roof to see speccy sunsets (or sunrises if one got up at such ungodly hours). We enjoyed our stay.

This accommodation is centrally located and within minutes of all amenities and places of interest. Is clean and very large with a full kitchen and pots and pans etc. Great host cannot do enough for you. Great places of interest close by.
