Description

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.

The 3 bedroom house sleeps up to 8 people. Layout includes 2 large bedrooms with double beds and one bunk room with 4 single beds. There is a large bathroom with shower. The kitchen has all the modern facilities required to prepare beautiful meals while looking out over the sea views.

There is a wood burring combustion fireplace and reverse cycle air con and heating. This house offers all of the modern conveniences while being submerged into nature. When we say that the house is directly on the waters edge, we are not exaggerating. It's a beautiful spot

New Owners

Samphire was recently purchased and renovated/updated by the new owners. It is a beautifully furnished house with all the comforts required to have a very relaxing and refreshing holiday.

There is a local property manager who will asset you with your stress free booking procedures and anything you need while staying at the house.

American River

In American River, you are in the heart of Kangaroo Island fishing adventures. The River is breaming with whiting and salmon trout. Squid can be caught off the jetty throughout the year. The house is within walking distance to the acclaimed Oyster Shop and other local restaurants. There is a small shop associated with the local Post Office which offers your basic supplies. The foreshore BBQ facilities, children's playground and public tennis court are located just down the road. There are beautiful walking trails and you are only a 5 minute drive from the stunning Pennington Bay or local hidden gem, Red Banks.

The house gives direct access to beautiful walking trails out to "The Cannery" which is an American River trail to Ballast Head. It's stunning

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant in all ways! Wonderful house that comfortably accommodated three generations for 5nights. Beautiful location on the foreshore, only neighbours were flocks of swans and pelicans. Perfect week, thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It doesn't get much better than this Modern, clean, spacious and well-equipped, this house is a wonderful place for getting away from it all with nothing to interrupt the peace and tranquility except for the calling of the dozens of black swans and other water birds. In addition to the swans, there were pied cormorants, silver headed gulls, ibis and pelicans - one of which visited us in the early morning and proceeded to put on a display of how talented pelicans are! The kitchen was very well equipped and the beds guaranteed a good night's sleep. We loved everything about the place - the space, the views over the bay and the quiet. American River is a very small town and the only general store (which used to sell petrol) has closed so that you need to drive to Penneshaw or Kingscote to stock up. The locals we met were so friendly and helpful (especially at the Deck Cafe where Marilyn went to a lot of trouble to contact the manager after we locked ourselves out of the house, leaving our mobile phone inside ... DUR!). We'll definitely be back!
