Gorgeous and cute, perhaps a touch romantic, The Shanty is a cosy, comfortable cottage only 200 metres from the wharf, boat ramp and playground at serenely beautiful American River. It is light and airy with a wonderful outlook across the oval towards Pelican Lagoon which is perfect for kayaking and birdwatching. This is a great place for a family holiday or a relaxing, romantic interlude on magnificent Kangaroo Island.

The shanty is located at American River, which is not too far to any place you want to visit, much better than staying at Penneshaw or Kingscote. The place is very clean and kitchen is full equipped. We couldn't expect more than provided. Highly recommended. Would love to come …

The Shanty is a complete self contained, comfortable accommodation choice. The location in American River was peaceful, quite and The Shed (community meal venue) just out the back gate was most welcome on our arrival evening.

Shanty was the key to our wonderful stay at American River. If there's a heaven I was in it. This all vintage holiday house was so evocative of happy summers by the beach. It was Immaculately clean and brilliantly kitted out. We wanted for nothing more. It was perfect.

Awesome little rustic shack in a sleepy neighborhood. Walking distance to the local jetty. Half an hour from the ferry. Our two primary school aged kids loved it too!
