Down to Erth B &B
Ranked #2 of 4 Coober Pedy B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stayed in down the earth B&B in december during our road trip Uluru. Rose and Alex are the BEST host anyone could ask for; such genuinely lovely people. They were extremely welcoming right from the beginning, accommodation was beautifully prepared, and they also recommended really wonderful places to visit. We had the best time in Cooper Pedy and really enjoyed our two nights in this unique accommodation. Would recommend this place to everyone, you will not be disappointed!

I stayed here in December 2012 with my wife and her family visiting from China. Rose and Alex made us feel so welcome. They showed us through their new house and took the time to explain a little about opals and noodling for them. Our visitors were very impressed at how friendly Rose and Alex were. We highly recommend Down to Erth.

We took two nights out from a busy period and felt like we'd had a decent holiday by the time we got back. The accommodation was great, the 'small touches' appreciated. Rose's veggie patch was an inspiration. We bought our own food in town, cooked our meals on the BBQ and relaxed by reading out in the courtyard. Wonderful!! During the day we went out on tours with Wayne Borrett from Arid Area Tours and had a fabulous time. We will go back for a longer stay and will definitely book Wayne's services again.

Room Tip: It's a bit far from town without a car (we flew in), but Rose and Alex were very accommodating.

What a find this place was! Rose and Alex are the owners and have done a fabulous job with this 2 bed stay 10 metres underground. Well appointed, nothing is left out and you feel like you are in your own home. We did not want to leave as I am sure so many others have also thought!

Kitted out with a magnificent comfy bed, kitchen complete with coffee grinder and beans, continental brekkie included, along with teas and hot chocolate. The lounge has complete home theatre needs plus booster for wifi and phone signal. Board games are also provided. The bathroom is wonderful and there is a washing machine as well. The apartment is beautifully turned out with wooden rails and other furnishings handcrafted by Alex. Is completed by a plunge pool outside as well as a BBQ and outdoor seating. Will recommend this place to anyone and think about staying a few days- great place to relax and see the surrounding sites. Don't be put off by its location being out of town- it is worth it. Can't wait to go back there!

Rose and Alec are most welcoming, relaxed people. Alec has dug the accomodation himself which is an amazing job, and Rose loves looking after the place and the guests, many thoughtful attentions all along (home-made fruit compote in the fridge, chocolate and wine, tasty decoration, sieves and shovel available to go opal noodling). The pool and barbecue area is great to cool down, and after that you can watch documentaries about the region on DVD (lake Eyre, Opal fever). Fantastic place to stay, I just didn't want to leave so soon !!
(Also check out Arid Areas tours ! Rose and Alec know the guide Wayne well, and he will pick you up at the B&B to show you the beautiful outback around !)

What a terrific place! Comfortable, spotless, and wonderful facilities - the little touches like the wine and chocolates, the teddy bear on the bed, selection of games, laundry facilities, scrumptious breakfast - was just fantastic!

Rose and Alex were terrific hosts - warm and friendly, and able to give us plenty of help with planning what to do and see around town.

We only booked in for one night, and if we'd been able to, we would have changed our plans and stayed longer!
