Welcome to my delightful and spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom underground home. Located in a safe and quiet area of town, it is clean and comfy and offers a lovely feel and atmosphere of home. This dugout is let as a whole home and is suitable for singles, couples travelling together, as well as families. It offers all the comforts and facilities of home including linen, laundry and cooking facilities. With the kitchen and 2nd bedroom set along the front of the cut, it offers lots of light into the place, and the living and bedroom areas are large giving the dugout a nice airy feel. There is a small bbq area, a carport, and ample room for parking several cars. Although dugouts are renowned for keeping a constant temperature of between 18 - 25 degrees Celsius, they can vary after long stints of hot or cold weather, therefore I have installed a split system air conditioner ensuring your complete comfort for the duration of your stay whether it be summer or winter. Note: Pets allowed only with prior approval. If you are travelling as an extra large group my other dugout "Di's Place" is next door. It is a large 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom underground home which sleeps up to 9 people.
Welcome to my lovely dugout. I purchased it in 1997 along with the 2 dugouts next door. I love to renovate and over the last 20 years have continued to add and improve my homes.
We love out town. It is unique and the people who live here are friendly and always up for a chat and happy to help. The town itself is steeped in history of opal mining and outback. The desert views and night skies are like nothing you have ever seen before. As opal capital of the world it hosts beautiful shops and, if you happen to be looking for that fabulous and personable gemstone, you will find it here at a much more affordable price than the city. The tourism here offers great tours including the opal fields and outback. as well as our renowned mail run which takes you to the outback stations and shows you how vast our country really is. Other attractions include several underground churches, the award winning Old Timers Mine, Toms Working Mine, Fays Underground home, the break-a-ways; and the longest fence in the world, the famous Dog Fence, wraps around Coober Pedy, approximately 40km north and 30km south. As a multicultural town with approximately 45 different nationalities living here we have several clubs including the Italo-Australian Miners Club, the Serbian club, Greek Club and Croatian. Coober Pedy Races each October, Opal Festival each Easter.
