No one there when we arrived in the afternoon. We could not contact anyone at the units, phoned twice and left a message, but they NEVER returned our call. Place was unkempt, dirty, grotty, and that was just the outside. The room was even worse, fridge not on and door left open, mop and bucket there on the floor. Also...

Its a really nice llace to live in american river. The units are clean only the area outside was bit grassy. The kitchenette is well equipped and one can bring raw materials and cook there. The bbq was bit dirty. The bed was too comfy.

We were very pleasantly surprised by our seaside stay in Island Coastal Units last month. It was clean, spacious, and fully equipped with every appliance a family of 5 needed. The location was just brilliant, situated in the heart of the township with views of American River Cove from our unit. The BBQ was a welcome find also, and it...

We stayed for 3 nights in March (unit 1). We found the unit clean and well equipped. The outdoor BBQs (2 of), for very unclean and not suitable for use which was disappointing. Of the three nights we were the only people staying (there were two other units occupied for 1 night). We were aware of the unit booked when...

We stayed at Island Coastal in February, and contrary to the reviews I thought our unit was clean and adequate. Our host Marian was delightful... she looked after all our needs and nothing was a problem for her. The location was nice with a water view. I'm glad we took a chance despite the reviews and booked.

I appreciate that there needs to be budget accommodation and this was the cheapest option when I booked on the SeaLink website. I also appreciate that we were traveling in low season. However, I do expect a certain level of cleanliness when I arrive at my chosen accommodation. Perhaps in winter it's hard to keep the bugs out of the...

Despite reading the previous reviews that were far from complementary, we decided to book the Island Costal Units for our trip to Kangaroo Island in early January. We stayed in a cabin & were pleasantly surprised to find that this suited our needs exactly. The cabins are ideally situated with a lovely veranda area where we ate our breakfast each...

Thank you for taking the time to review Island Coastal. I did welcome you when you arrived - I welcomed all your party. Almost 40 people arrived at the same time in the two sets of units I run. I remember well who was in each cabin and I viisited each twice on the day of arrival to check all...

There was no one to greet us. The house and grounds were completely unkept & filthy The floor had not even been swept when others had left. There were muddy footprints on the laundry floor. The clean dishes had food stuck on them. Main bed had been laid in & the covers pulled back straight. There was a dirty old...

I agree with a previous review. These units are VERY basic. Arriving for a winter visit our room had no heater, only 1 extra blanket for a single bed even though the beds had the thinnest of quilts on them. Once we managed to wrangle a heater, it didn't work properly. The bathroom door wouldn't close properly and kitchen equipment...
