House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
Dugouts are remarkably sound proof, however, out of respect for neighbours it would be appreciated if the noise is kept low outdoors between the hours of 11pm and 7am.. Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the dugout. Extra people after 2 are charged $32/person/night. School holidays: after 4 $40/person.Please check your guest numbers before booking to avoid the embarrassment of asking for more money. The dugout is to be left clean and tidy. All washing up done and all rubbish picked up.

Interaction with guests
I like to greet my guests if possible, this gives me the opportunity to familiarise you with the dugout, as well as answer any questions you may have about the accommodation or general information about Coober Pedy. Sometimes however, time doesn't allow that so I am more than happy to leave a key in the door and the dugout lit up so you can see it clearly from the road.

About the neighbourhood
Coober Pedy is unique. It is steeped in history of opal mining and outback. As opal capital of the world it hosts beautiful shops, restaurants, tourist attractions, underground churches as well as beautiful desert views. The famous dog fence, separating dingoes in the north from the southern sheep grazing country, curls north and south east of Coober Pedy. There are many different tours available to satisfy any travelers curiosity and questions relating to the history of our fabulous multi cultural town and surrounding outback. Learn about opal and wonder at the different styles of mining, both old and modern day by visiting the renowned Old Timers Mine. Experience and see machinery working at Toms working mine.
Getting around
Di's Dugouts are situated in a quiet area 2.3 km north of the town centre. A vehicle is recommended as there are few street lights to town. Hire cars are available from Budget, Coober Pedy. For those people who do not wish to hire a vehicle, I am more than happy to provide a shuttle service. There are excellent tours available which pick up and drop off and upon request. Coober Pedy has an uber service called KC Transfers.
