“A true Coober Pedy experience, great Accomodation & charming hosts”
Reviewed January 6, 2011

I based my selection of the Down to Erth B&B on other Tripadvisor reviews and was not at all disappointed. The underground accommodation was excellent and the hosts Rose & Alex were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our 2 night stay was definitely memorable. We highly reccommend this B&B.

We stayed at Down to Erth for one night and really liked it. Our 3 year old daughter loved the two dogs and we all enjoyed a swim in the pool. Rose and Alex are very welcoming hosts! Joost, Inge and Mia, Melbourne

If you're traveling through Coober Pedy, you MUST book in and stay at Down to Erth B&B. Alex and Rose have created such a wonderful space for their guests. Rose has thought of EVERYTHING in making one's stay there very welcoming and comfortable. Our first morning in Coober Pedy, we actually didn't want to leave the B&B! It was very hot outside and very cool and comfortable and lovely inside. The space is completely separate from Alex and Rose, so it's very private and relaxing; however they are just next door and readily available if you need anything or have questions about what to see and do in the area. Also, they're just lovely people to visit with. We would most definitely stay here again; loved it.

Rose and Alex are super nice hosts with a very clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment. Nice big spa bathtub, washing machine, comfortable beds, complimentary wine, breakfast included several choices of cereal, toast with butter and jam, yogurt with a home made compote (husband loved the compote) and milk and juice to drink. Would definitely stay here again!
