8/10 Very good

Traditional quiet holiday accommodation
A quiet place to stay a short walk to the waterfront. Large old fashioned unit with plenty of space. Worked well for two people but has the bathroom with ill fitting sliding doors between the two bedrooms which might concern larger groups. Friendly host, no Wifi as yet. American River is very quiet which is fine if that is what you want. Do not believe the brochures about choice of restaurants and cafes! Nice dinner at the local club. Koala in a tree and a seal on the wharf, lots of birds. Cheap for Kangaroo Island.

4 nights on Kangaroo Island
The checkin was made very easy with Danielle. A lot of the photos of the villas cabins were not for Kangaroo Island Coastal Villas. The villas were very small. Very disappointed with the villa as the hoots on the website made it look so much more roomy.

Stayed at the KI Coastal Villas for a few days as a base while I went driving around the island. I was in one of the air conditioned family units, which had a kitchenette with a stove and a full sized fridge. This was handy as there aren't a lot of places that are open after 5.00 in American River most nights, and driving to either Kingscote or Penneshaw for dinner runs the risk of roadkill, so being able to cook for myself was useful. If you're happy to have an early dinner though, there's plenty of options within a 30 minute drive if you don't want to eat at the three or four places in American River. The cabin was small but comfortable. There were two bedrooms, one with a king size bed that took up a lot of the room, and another with a bunk bed. There aren't much in the way of cupboards, but the shelves are enough to store a few days worth of clothes. Bring some coathangers if you want to hang anything up. The main living area had a small round table for four and a couch with a TV above the fridge. There's a small deck with a small table and a couple of chairs if you want to take in the sounds of wildlife. The beach is at the end of the driveway, with a playground, tennis and basketball court, and a 'take-a-book, leave-a-book' library attached to the shelter shed nearby. The boatramp is a five minute walk away with a cafe open 9-5 (try the eggs benny!). Great spot to unwind at and just relax.

comfortable quiet convenient
The units are comfortable and clean and provide the basics for a self catering holiday. Walking distance to the cafe and oyster farm , with a pleasant filtered view of the nearby water through the garden and trees.

A clean modern cabin with wonderful hosts who were both welcoming and helpful on arrival. The Nature Cabins were perfect for us as a young family, good air conditioning for our baby, great little kitchen (with microwave) for us to prepare meals in and was privately secluded but still a 2min walk to the beach! An amazing spot, would highly recommend.
