Escape the ordinary when visiting the amazing ancient landscape of Central Australia with its rich indigenous culture. Saturate yourself in local colour and be inspired by the power of aboriginal art in a living gallery environment.

Vatu Sanctuary and Vatu Homestead are two separate properties offering conveniently located, self catering apartments, set in an inspiring artistic environment with the concept of indoor/outdoor living, surrounded by natural beauty - a perfect oasis in the heart of Alice Springs.

We have created six gorgeous residences, varying from studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedrooms. Perfect for professionals coming to work in Alice Springs or for travellers wanting to experience more than a boring room in an anonymous hotel which could be anywhere in the world...

We have provided for everything you need. Just unpack your bags and start living!

Both properties are located on the north side of Alice Springs, 2.5 kilometres from town, towards the Telegraph Station. They are both discreetly tucked away behind fences with locked gates to ensure privacy and security. We love to create beautiful living spaces and we pride ourselves on having many repeat clients.

We are perfect for small groups, conferences and special events where we offer the exclusive use of the Vatu Sanctuary property.

Food baskets are optional extras. We also can refer you to local caterers.

Subject to availability, we are available for one week to a couple of months bookings. Bookings of 2 weeks or more include linen and apartment general clean.
