Excellent place in Alice Springs

I stayed in a studio which was very spacious and comfortable. It has all modern amenities. Communal areas are great! I specially liked the artwork in the rooms and outside. Overall fantastic place.

Stayed 6 nights in Oct. 2017

The upgraded accomodation was great.so much room.the pool was a great relief from the heat, it felt like stepping into a warm bath.we will definitely stay there again, possibly in the Studio apartment.

Location: The location in Braitling is close to the walking tracks, and if the weather is not too hot, it is an easy walk to the shops.

Can't ask for more.

We (5 of us) stayed in Vatu Sanctuary for (VC) 3 nights starting 6/7/2016. I was so busy enjoying myself in Ayers Rock that I have forgotten to call Colin to arranging the check-in. Colin couldn't call me as I didn't leave him a phone number. Colin, who has left me a e-mail that I didn't read, gracefully accepted my apologies and promptly orangised our check-in. He even left us a fruit basket! All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay in VC. The rooms were clean, aptly furnished. The air conditioners worked perfectly, not to mention the wifi, pool, BBQ, patio etc. What we enjoyed most is the kitchen where we have a lot of fun in preparing and cooking our dinners. We did try our very best to return the kitchen to its original sparking condition. Vatu Sanctuary is no doubt the best value for money accommodation we have experienced in the past 3 weeks in Australia.

5/5 Excellent

Peace and beauty with all home comforts

The garden is miraculous and full of roses when we visited. The Pond had three gardens from which to choose, all different, all beautiful. The fountains were particularly welcome. The kitchen was a cook's delight with a supply of herbs, spices and olive oil as well as loose leaf tea and real coffee. Art work throughout the house ( much of it for sale) added a personal touch. Colin the manager is a gem and on hand to help with every situation.

Pros: The choice of dining areas and the marvellous kitchen and there is a supermarket in walking distance

Cons: An additional toilet in the laundry would be a boon with 6 [eople when staying at the Pond.

Location: The house and studios are in a quiet suburban area, a few minutes from the centre of Alice Springs. A car provides flexibility.
