Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and commentary of a stalwart of growing the town of CP. The house is lovely and well maintained.

“blast to the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

I used to drive tour bus in the outback of Australia during thr 70's and 80's. I had the pleasure of meeting Faye personally during that time. I was pleased to see Faye's hard work as a pioneer woman of the outback maintained and available for others to see.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

My partner and I headed up to this home not quite sure what to expect. We arrived in the mid afternoon and honestly felt a tad awkward that we were imposing on someone's life by just showing up unannounced. We are slightly awkward people so we did find this a little uncomfortable but this is more a reflection of us than of the hosts.

We were given a guided tour that gave us wonderful information and a really interesting insight into life in Coober Pedy. The host pointed out a number of things that we enjoyed hearing and the tour really was fantastic. Just me... but i did feel a little odd walking around someone's home. Despite that I definitely recommend that you pop in and have a look as you'll never see anything like it!

If you don't visit this iconic landmark when in Coober Pedy, you shouldn't bother stopping! It is the perfect view into life for a local Coober Pedy person ;-)

“Not to be missed in Coober Pedy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

You can't leave the town without visiting one of those awesome dugouts, as this is precisely what Coober Pedy is about: underground houses, underground churches, underground hotels... Faye's home is a must-do in a must-see place, that's all !
