We stayed at Bond Springs for 4 nights and wished we had more time to stay. The cottage is comfortable, spotlessly clean. Laura and Ben were excellent hosts. The breakfasts provided every day by Laura were amazing. Fresh bread, fruit, yoghurts, egg and bacon pies, the list goes on. A different feast every day. It was so quiet, just what we needed when we arrived in Alice. Bond Springs is easy to find and only a short drive from the town of Alice. Highly recommended.

Our visit to this outback retreat ended in a big disappointment. Our travel agency booked the Wurlie cottage but after arrival we were told that the owners decide on arrival in which cottage you will stay. We were put in a room with no other facilities, no kitchen, no bbq etc. It was not even on the website. The food and drinks we bought we had to put in the fridge in the kitchen of the main house. Which was not what we had in mind for a self contained cottage. After an hour we left the premises and stayed in Alice Springs.....

We stayed two nights here in a converted stockman's cottage. It was comfortable, had everything one needed - it was about 10 miles from Alice Springs, but seemingly nearly in the middle of nowhere. We had two wonderful breakfasts provided by Laura, and had the opportunity to "Barbeque" stopping at the supermarket in town for supplies on the way. We even had four cows just wander by the gate one morning, on their way to wherever. There was a small pool for the guests to use. Being so far away from unnatural light at night, the stars seemed to be very bright and the sunsets magnificent.

Wonderful place to stay. Perfect hosts. Great breakfast. Peaceful surrounds. Fantastic scenery - what more can I say. Not hard to find and being out of Alice Springs is a bonus. A special place to stay.

Had a lovely relaxing stay at Bond Springs. It really does feel in the middle of nowhere, probably because it is. It's about 8 miles out of downtown Alice Springs, partly on dirt road, this added to the attractiveness for us. Very old style, not phone, no TV, no internet. Very friendly people, we even got a bottle of good old rainwater.
