We really wanted to stay underground since we were here where so much of the town is underground. This is an underground motel (built into the hill). I liked the fact it had a pool (great after a long drive) and it's pleasant to sit on the verandah and look out at the view it's named after. The rooms are...

Stayed here one night , authentic underground experience. Very spacious , quiet location . It's quiet dated but comfortable and plenty of hot water . The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Also crime rate is low in this area. Swimming pool small but full of inflatable toys . Great sunrise view over Coober pedy . Useable wifi .

This accomodation has now gotten better with free in-room Wifi. The accomodation is great for an overnight stay or even a little longer as the apartment means you can cook meals for yourself. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the proprietors are friendly. The kids enjoyed the pool during this visit. We will continue to stay at Desert View...

The stay in the desert view apartment was great..enough space under the earth..everything well equipped and nice and friendly owner couple. Worth staying at least two nights. The village is worth seeing with the old mine town and the fantastic churches underneath the earth too.

I visit far north SA on business about eight times a year and stay for one to two weeks. Desert view was recommended by a co-worker. The apartments are quiet and secure, a couple of minutes from the main street, large, unique and clean. The hosts are relaxed and make a real effort to make each stay an excellent one....

The hosts were friendly and very helpful. The apartment had a large kitchen, dining and lounge area. We had 2 bedrooms. The apartment are old and look a bit tired, but they are clean and have everything you want in it. For only $130 a night, it was very reasonable. Would recommend these apartments to anybody. They are very good...
