It's a fantastic deal in KI.
We stayed here for 5 nights in June(winter), Ken is very friendly, kind and helpful! They would do their best to assist you. Give us tips and advices to exploring Kangaroo Island everyday. The room got Wildlife around,very comfortable mattress, quiet location.

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 children. Our children loved meeting Ken's Lorikeet and he made our whole family feel quite at home. Thank you Ken and Kim.

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 clean and spacious. No aircon, but the fans were sufficient so we could sleep even during the heatwave that struck the island while we were there. It was great having a kitchen - we suggest you buy some seafood from the oyster farm shop and cook it up one night of your stay. Delicious!

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 you could need to cook simple meals on the 2 ring hobs and microwave. The wildlife around the property was special, sightings aided by Ken's excellent knowledge.
I would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Ken - it could not have been a better stay for us. Excellent value.

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:) good value for money.

Reviewed 16 February 2013

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 relax, try some fishing and see some of the beautiful island. For this purpose the units was a perfect 10 out of 10 match! For fishing, plenty of close options, the beach (2 minute walk), the jetty (10 min walk) and charter boats leaving from the jetty as well.
Having heard of our first days unsuccessful nature, Ken delievered us one of his catches. Very unexpected and welcomed!! There is a great fish cleaning area at the units, with a free lesson off Ken to get us started. After a few days we managed to catch fish everyday for dinner.

American river was also a great location as it was a 25min drive to Kingscote for supplies and closer to Penshaw although we generally always went to Kingscote. American River was so peaceful and quiet, the people friendly. We had initially planned to stay half our time in American River or Kingscote and then stay on the other side of the island the rest of the time. We were so happy with our first 4 days at Casuarina units that we decided to stay all our days there PLUS extended our holiday for a few more days.

The units were clean and well maintained. The kitchen was COMPLETE as any I have stayed. We didn't need to have brought as much stuff as we did with us as everything was there.

We had a koala in the tree outside our unit for most of the stay, wallabies visiting nightly for a drink, and the sound of the birds in the morning just spectacular!

As you can tell, we loved it and will not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who is headed to KI.
IMO: Do not book anything with Sealink, after buying your (VERY expensive!!) ferry ticket, they try to sell you insurance, they try to convince you to book accomodation through them (at a higher rate of course),...like the $390.00 you got out of us for a 30min ferry ride isn't enough already!! come'on?
