Fantastic stay. Julie was very warm and welcoming. Stayed in the room with own kitchenette. Everything was warm and inviting (especially their cat,who was sitting on my lap within 5 mins of being there). Gave us a tour of the house they rent out , which was fantastic for large groups or if you don't mind sharing. From Adelaide we went to Alice Springs . We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed there on the way home.
One tip though don't leave your shoes outside as their dog(very friendly) seems to like shoes. luckily it only tastes them but doesn't chew them
We met our young travelling family in Coober Pedy; they chose this B&B for us as a surprise and led us in. I had no idea what we were headed for but was pleasantly surprised to find a large spacious, well appointed fully furnished underground home suitable for all 7 of us. Breakfast was included.
Our hosts Julie and Marc made us feel very welcome and were wonderful with the children. A beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert!
Stayed there for two wonderful days in May. The propriotors are great to deal with and and share a yarn with.
Although some say it is a little hard to find there is signage around directing you, I gave them a call about 10km out and they were able to give me simple directions on the phone.
Rooms were great and you have a lot of space to relax.
If i ever pass up there again i will defiently be staying here.
My Wife and I recently moved from Darwin to SA and drove down. The second last night we stayed in JAM B&B. During the drive my Wife says "Oh we're staying underground tonight".. I was a bit worried UNTIL we got there, Jules was wonderful and welcoming, we both felt at home right away and after a long road trip this was welcomed! Our room was lovely and comfortable, well equipped and modern and even though the over night temperature dipped to about 10c the room stayed so toasty and warm.
We were greeted with a huge smile and a bottle of wine and some chocolates!. I enquired about the fire pit on the driveway and Jules response was "light it up!"..
I cannot rave enough about this place, we had a fire and watched the stars roll by in this incredible little B&B feeling welcomed and comfortable.
If we travel back to Coober Pedy for a little holiday or travel back to Darwin we will be staying here again!..
Oh and Coober Pedy is a GREAT little town full of life and Character. If you're a fan of Vin Diesel's Pitch Black film there are props from the movie all over the place. Definitely a must see..
Really really cool....stayed in some average motels along the way and thought I'd spend a little more a give Jam a go and was super happy I did.
Really lovely owners and not only was it comfortable and homely there were just some little extra bits of detail to make your stay a good one.
Next time I'm in Coober Pedy I definitely staying again.
J & M are the best hosts you could wish for in Coober Pedy. They are good people, super friendly and we were lucky to stay at their place for a night over the Easter weekend. Of course it is super cool to stay in a fully underground house in Cooby, but it was our hosts who made all the difference. We arrived dusty and dirty, with a minor accident (an oil can exploded in the back of my pick-up - arrgh!) that needed cleaning up and they allowed me to wash out my car in their underground yard. They even did a load of laundry for us to help clean up. The room came with full breakfast, fresh bread and coffee, which was much appreciated. Before leaving, they provided us with all the tips and directions we needed for exploring Cooby. Thanks again J & M!

Julie and Marcus are the perfect hosts. They make you feel as if you are a part of the family. The accommodation is brilliant, underground and comfortable and very well appointed. We were in the 'Love Shack' and our friends were in the main house but we all had the best Coober Pedy experience thanks to these amazing people.
