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

Stayed here 3 nights. Ken the owner could not have been more friendly and helpful (Kim was away so didn't see her - next time !). The units were perfect to kick off your boots and relax after a hard days walking ! The kitchen units etc. are not modern but very well maintained and clean. The kitchen had everything... More

We stayed 2 nights at Casuarina and it was a perfect. Ken and Kim are good hosts, Kim provided us all the info we need to explore KI. The unit is nothing fancy but has everything we wanted for a comfy stay. If you can watch sunrise at the lagoon nearby,plenty of beautiful black swans... We would definitely come back:)... More

From the other reviews of Casuarina units, it sounded like the perfect spot for us and I can tell you we were not at all dissapointed. It was perfect! From the first interaction to the last, Kim and Ken were immensly helpful and friendly without being intruding or pushy. One of the main reasons we went to KI was to... More

I took my Mum across to Kangaroo Island as I had not been there before and I wanted to show her something different other than our usual Barossa and Handorf outings. I wanted a self contained unit without a big price tag. This was perfect for us, it had a good size fridge and freezer which meant we could keep... More

My daughter and I stayed for three nights and found it suited our needs perfectly. It was budget priced but was cheery, comfortable and homely. It was much nicer than staying in a park cabin. We were able to keep food fresh in a large modern fridge/freezer and use the small stove top and microwave to prepare our meals. The... More

When our family travel we do it on a budget and I am becoming tired of places that begrudge everything they provide for you. Casuarina is the opposite, everything you could hope to find in accommodation and providing extras that places far more costly don't. Plentiful linen and artisan soaps as well as large quantities of small wrapped bars, spacious... More
