The artistic, hand crafted, 3-bedroom stone cottage is full of colour and character. Its very clever layout consists of separate living and sleeping quarters, 2-bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Located in a central Kangaroo Island location.

The space

This stone cottage was hand crafted by a local Island family. Each stone was collected near American River and together the family built the cottage, including the unique lead light windows and hanging art throughout the rooms. Staying at River Front Stone Cottage is like staying in a special piece of Kangaroo Island life-style.

The hand crafted, 3-bedroom stone cottage is full of colour and character. Its very clever layout consists of separate living and sleeping quarters, 2-bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. This stone cottage offers the perfect accommodation solution for families and groups of friends. The front building is the Kitchen and Living Room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are in the back building and each room opens up onto a covered outdoor breeze way, providing privacy for each of the 3 bedrooms. This is a very untraditional house layout.

This house does not have air-conditioning or central heating. There are floor fans and plug in electric heaters in each room.

My family stayed at Sarah's place and there were nothing but positive reviews! Super close to the ferry terminal, clean and cosy and the perfect size- would recommend staying at Sarah's as it is a good base location for going around KI :)

We had wonderful time at this house. in particular, spacious kitchen and clean bedrooms made us feel happy. and there is a jetty for fishing near this house so it was also very good to us. I strongly recommend that this house will be perfect for you and you will see more that you expect on it.

The stone cottage was ideally located. Overall it was value for money, but a few things to note were we did have some trouble finding the place at night as there is minimal lighting. The walls are not sound proof, so we heard our family talking when we were in our rooms. Also there was one but set of keys for the Main living areas / kitchen and we would lock up each night, so when someone wanted to go in there, we had to wake up the parents who had the keys.

Response from Sarah:
Hi Kendie, Thanks for your feedback. The walls are 30 cm thick stone (URL HIDDEN) I don't think we can make them any more sound proof :) Also, we are happy to have more keys cut...there has never been a request before. Luckily, Kangaroo Island is one of the safest places in the world and most of us never lock any doors, so having extra keys has never before been suggested. Thanks for the suggestion. Thanks for staying!

Great place to stay just across the street from the American River. Amazing sunrises. No issues with having the living and sleepings areas in two different buildings.

This is a unique stone cottage with bedrooms, bathrooms and toilets open to the outside. I quite like it. It reminds me of going to school camp. However my wife not used to this sort of living arrangement. American River is a central location to base yourself in KI while exploring the island. I had a wonderful time staying at River Front. Definitely would stay there again.
