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.

Your unit had an oil heater and lots of blankets provided in...

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.
