I stayed at Kathy's Place for two nights, one night before and one after going on a tour to Uluru. I had a really comfortable stay there, Kathy was very helpful with getting things organized and both hosts were very friendly and nice. Rooms and bathroom are nice, comfortable and clean and the breakfast was tasty as well. I'd go... More

This was like staying at my Mom's house in Saskatchewan many years ago, and that's not a negative. Be warned of a couple things: long walk to downtown, shared bathroom across the hallway with another room. It was very hot so walking out of the question, even in cooler weather, probably 30-40 minutes for long legged hikers! Karl dropped us... More

Yes, summer is a very hot time of year in The Alice, and walking in this heat is not encouraged, re the lifts into town. Winter tempertures are great and walking is a pleasure in the warm sun at this time of year, as many guests come to do the hiking that is available in Central Australia. A shared bathroom... More

The children were terrific thanks to great parents, and the fun they had in the pool was lovely to listen to. Glad the gear got back to you safe and sound. thanks for staying with us.

It was one of best place to stay at Alice, you is like staying at home, Kathy is very nice. They prepared the very good breakfast and it is very well organized. The pool is a great option when you arrive in the afternoon excursion. It's very nice family dinner with them.

Booking Process: during the booking process I contacted Kathy on about 3 occasions ( I needed to alter my booking ). Kathy always replied within 24 hours, and nothing was a problem. Accommodation: my room was large, comfy bed, very clean and homely. There was plenty of space for writing, storage for luggage etc. An electric heater was more than... More

We had chosen to stay here as all of our previous accommodation on this trip had been in hotels and apartments, i.e. in a more formal environment. We had hoped to come closer to Australian daily life here and were positively surprised. Our hosts Kathy and Karl provided us with a lot of insight into the town, the outback and... More
