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.

A great place for families : lots of space, confortable beds, and a swimming pool ! Very typical : you are staying in a dry cave. No humidity at all ! Because it's a cave, there is no air conditioning which is ok, if your kids don't let the door open ! :-)

I booked here for two nights and was given room 2, a huge 3 bedroom apartment. Very comfortable and well equipped, especially the kitchen. It is built into rock and so you have the unusual underground experience, no windows of course, except for the one next to the door. There is no air-con because it never gets all that hot,...

We stayed here overnight on the way to and back from Uluru. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable on the local opal mining attractions plus eateries. Staying in the underground dugouts is a great experience and both of the apartments we stayed in were well equipped and very clean - one was ready for a revamp though. The position...

My husband and I stayed for the night to break up our trip between Uluru and Adelaide. The rooms were clean, large, cool and self contained. There is also the opportunity to catch the wonderful sunsets from the roof. The owners of the property are extremely helpful and friendly. The property provides an authentic underground experience. If you don't wish...

Great location, marvellous views of the Breakaways and desert region. The apartment was roomy, quiet and well equipped. The rooms were neat and tidy, service was excellent. Hosts Tony and Linda were wonderful and nothing was too much for them.
