In Coober Pedy we decided to spoil ourselves by experiencing the unique underground accommodation that the town is famous for. We stayed at Underground Bed and Breakfast which is dug into the side of a hill in the same way as most other underground houses (called dugouts) in Coober Pedy are. We planned to stay just one night, but we loved our first night so much we decided to stay an extra two. One night was not enough time to fully take advantage of the luxurious rooms, a fridge stocked full of homebrew beer, heated spa, relaxing outdoor entertaining area, a comfortable lounge with large TV and the novelty of staying underground. The lounge has DVDs of the movies made in the area – more than one night’s watching worth. Not only was the accomodation first class, but the owners, Ken and Ana, were so welcoming and friendly that it made the stay one of the most enjoyable times on our travels so far. We had dinner with them twice – once at the Greek restaurant in town and then at Ken and Ana’s house – delicious gnocchi home made by Ana. We would recommend a stay at Underground Bed and Breakfast to anyone visiting Coober Pedy. We are definitely glad we stayed there and will visit again if we return to Coober Pedy. Have a look on Trip Advisor to see what other guests are saying – you won’t find a single negative review.
