Samphire is a stunning holiday house that is located directly on the waters edge, overlooking across the American River Channel to Island Beach. There is no other house in this position which is the best in American River. Ideal spot for bird watchers, nature lovers, fishermen or a family just wanting to hide away for a while.

This was a great place to stay with our 3 year old to explore the island. Super close to the waters edge with a ‘mini’ beach to explore, visiting pelicans and swans made for a great experience. The fire pit was a favourite and used every night. Our little one didn’t want to leave…

One of the most amazing homes we have stayed at. Marvellous waterfront view, gorgeous wood heater and clever, thoughtful touches to the home which made the experience ever so sweeter. Will be back soon!

Location was a little hard to find due to a lack of signage. Thanks to the help of the kind neighbours who helped guide us to find our home for 2 nights. The home has a perfect view overlooking the River. You can watch the moon and stars at night or sunrise at daybreak.

Samphire cottage is located right on the beach. From the bedroom you have a better view than the bird lookout just next door. We really enjoyed sitting inside and outside the house while our children chased birds right in front of the house.

Magic little spot. Veranda was facing the morning sun so even though it was cold weather we could still sit outside for our morning coffee. Top visit and highly recommended.

American River is a great place to stay when visiting KI and Samphire cottage couldn't be better situated. Great views across the inlet with lots of birds for company a short walk to the post office, cafe and oyster shop. We loved it
