        Fantastic place to stay! ”

        Great location, and being built into the upper side of a hill, the elevation gives a fantastic view of the desert landscape. The apartment was far bigger than I had anticipated with plenty of room to spread out. Good facilities inside the apartment and around the complex. Free WiFi..cha-ching, but I couldn't get it from the comfort of my king bed so deep inside the rocky hole; par for the course I guess. The staff were very friendly and offered great advice as to things to see and do during my short stay in Coober Pedy.

        I have stayed at this site a number of times before. i like it primarily because of the location and the view. I also like that I am able to prepare my own food - given that I usually get to Coober Pedy about closing time for eating establishments. There are a few basic food preparation tools in the kitchen, including plates, cups, glasses, cutlery. The Management have always been friendly and helpful, apartments are comfortably fitted out and it is very quiet.

        I felt I could have been messing Tina around when my booking experienced some possible stressful changes, but top marks to Tina for going out of her way to make the stay as smooth as possible. Now THAT'S what travel in the outback needs quite often...supportive and experienced staff. The apartments were quiet and so so cool. They are in a very safe and secure part of town. Units are so big as well so you don't feel you're cramped at all. Thanks Desert View Apartments 10/10.

        We have stayed in one other place in Coober. This place was better in every way for the same price. Sure, the property could use some TLC, but it was clean with a decent kitchen and huge rooms for the family. Would have stayed another day had we had time.

        The apartment is big, however, the decoration seems a little aged, it is time to remodel it. the desert view just outside the yard is wonderful. The kitchen facility is enough for us, the big refrigerator is so big which is also a point of sales. It is very good for family traveler, or a group of friends.

Added bonus is a shady late-afternoon courtyard, swimming pool, and a nice view of the desert.

        Everything was clean and tidy. Facilities were good though the shower strangely opens onto the toilet. There were no clothes washing facilities to be found and several attempts to visit the office found it closed on all occasions over the 3 days. Access was easy on arrival and check out was equally seamless, however, the invoice left in the room was for someone else and showed lower rates than was taken from our credit card. Soap and shampoo were sufficient for one day only - not sufficient for 3 people for 3 days. Overall, though, we made it work and the value and location would encourage us to visit again.
