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.
