Thank you for staying with us and giving your thoughts in a review. It is a constant attention on the little things like utensils that helps make a holiday meal enjoyable. My neighbours that clean let me know what to provide in the kitchen as i am not the cook. I build the kitchens and lay them out as best i can to be easy to use. We have added extra cabinets for guests to put an esky, cereals, snacks and plates to serve up so tge new photos will show that. It looked to me like guests had woolies bags on the floor which i thought would annoy me so made the extra shelves and benches for every apartment.

Thank you. Our apartments are all larger than the norm for the Island. Your apartment was built to an architect design (my Daughter's) to easily accommodate mobility equipment such as wheelchairs and lifters, sky bridge, ramps and hand holds. Very proud of what we have achieved and your 5 out of 5 gives us a real sense of fulfilment so thank you.

Gorgeous views, good location if you want to be away from other tourists, brand new unit is modern and very lovely. Just a few issues: shower runs either scalding hot or ice cold, and water goes everywhere as there is no curtain. Also no where to hang clothes. But we had a really nice stay and would stay again.

Thank you for your kind words and your help re the shower. We run on rainwater which is great for washing and drinking but the pump needed to be changed to suit the Hot water service. It was a case of trying too hard to give a great shower without flow changes and we just reverted to an old tried and true system to fix it. Re the hanging spaces we have that setup now. Just a few things to get it just right as we have on the other apartment. Thank you for the feedback and thank you for explaining it to me when you were here so I could work out what was happening with the shower.

Pros: New and clean with modern appliances. Provides two separate and spacious bedrooms. The exterior is well lit, with state of the art security features.
Cons: If you could slow down time to enable even more time to enjoy this place, then that would be ideal.
Location: A very quiet and peaceful town situated on the coast. Stunning views of the inlet and surrounding parts of the island. Visit the oyster farm shop.
If you need a private getaway from the city life then this is it. The views from the front are absolutely beautiful as you can see the bay a stones throw away. The staff are friendly and provide assistance if needed. A short stroll away from Sunrise is a local restaurant called Wanderers Rest where you can enjoy a lovely meal overlooking the bay. American River is a very small community and consists of a post office where you can buy basic essentials. However, it is strongly recommended to have a vehicle for transport to visit the surrounding tourists attractions, such as The Oyster Farm Shop and The River Deck Cafe located in town. The town is an ideal location as it is a short drive from Kingscote and Penneshaw in either direction, these being the major towns on the island. There are many wonderful places to visit and sights to see on Kangaroo Island. I highly recommend Sunrise on Falie as the place to stay while doing so.
