We really enjoyed the location, no traffic, plenty of birds, freedom to bring only our food, kitchen well-equipped. Warmly welcomed and a feeling of security while we went touring. Will stay again, thanks Kim & Ken.

The cabin had evertyhing needed. I rose with the sun and slept so well with only wild birdlife sounds to hear. The walks around the area are amazing. The... More

Great spot, not fancy, but very relaxing and informal. The authentic American River experience. Kim was very helpful and friendly, and pointed us to some wonderful places accessible by bike, our only means of transport! We had a very enjoyable few days. Thanks Kim.

Dear Reviewer Thank you for taking the time to post feedback. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay; however my cleaner of several years would be appalled that your suggestion that the units and BBQ were not clean and I do not agree with your remarks. Your unit had an oil heater and lots of blankets provided in... More

We stayed at Casuarina Coastal Units for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. Before arriving the owners contacted us to check if we needed any extra's for our 2 year old boy. The units were very clean, comfortable and have full kitchen facilities. The area is tranquil, a walk from the water and there is a small play area for... More

We stayed four nights here and used it as a base for exploring Kangaroo Island. The owners were really friendly, and had even made some ice cubes in the freezer ready for our arrival. We really appreciated this as we were hot from driving down from Adelaide and crossing on the ferry. The unit was great - dated decor, but... More
