The amazing Down to Erth B&B, and hosts Alex & Rose, were our wonderfully warm welcome to Coober Pedy! After 8 hours on the road, to arrive in Coober Pedy late afternoon & witness the remarkable scenery and changing colours was spectacular enough, but to then discover the underground gem that was our accommodation was simply amazing. Alex's attention to... More

We were treated extremely well by Alex and Rose with nothing too much trouble. The accommodation was great with a well stocked kitchen for breakfast. Very close to town I doubt there would be better value in Coober Pedy.

What an experience! It's great to experience underground living. We had a wonderful time when stayed in Down to Erth. Rose & Alex were very kindly people! Any time we are in Coober Pedy we will be staying there! Stanley & Sunny

Rose and Alex were very friendly hosts throughout our stay! The place was big for $165 a night. Well signposted directions from the main road led us right into the place which was through unsealed roads off Stuart Highway. The turnoff is right after the turnoff to Williams Creek. Rose met us and brought us around the whole place to... More

A couple of kms to the south of the town this is a great way to experience underground living. The host is a great and very helpful lady. This is a single two bed apartment that is self contained including it own pool. Well equipped kitchenette and BBQ. Would not hesitate to recommend.

We recently stayed at Down to Earth B & B, great place for a night or more if you want to explore more of Coober Pedy, just on the edge of town. Rose was fantastic with any help we needed, the apartment was beyond our expectations the quietness of being 10 feet under was amazing as well as being cool... More

Prior to travelling we cruised Trip Advisor for an underground B&B for our night's stay at Coober Pedy reliving an earlier experience when travelling with our children 25 years ago. We are delighted to report that the excellent reviews posted are 100% accurate. Rosie and Alex are the consummate hosts. The spa was particularly refreshing after an 8 hour trip.... More

My two adult daughters and I stayed at Down to Erth on our February drive from Sydney to Darwin. As we arrived Rose showed us the shaded thermometer reading 46C. So the pool was a welcome respite. The rooms were comfortable and well-equipped, and pleasantly cool, and the B&B was a lovely place to stay. Rose and Alex were excellent... More
