The Pines holiday house
About Mark Prater
We bought The Pines to use as a family holiday house. The location of The Pines makes it ideal for family activities such as walking, fishing, swimming and surfing.
Mark Prater purchased this House in 2006
Why Mark Prater chose American River
What initially attracted us to the property was its location, for though it is within walking distance of the key facilities of American River, it has only one neighbour, and has extensive views over the oval to the boat ramp and wharf.

Cosy family retreat
We had an amazing stay in American River, the community is wonderful, the meals next door at the club were great value, the tennis courts and the playgrounds got a work out and the location was a quiet, comfortable staging ground for the day's activities. The Pines is cosy and clean, it was great value and we will look here first for any return visits to the island. Thankyou so much for having us!
Great little cottage
Cottage was great. A perfect spot for the kids with the little playground and oval right next door. Our eldest child enjoyed fishing from the wharf which is also nice and close. Not a lot in American River but was so peaceful and was a perfect base to travel the island. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Mark was very quick to respond to any queries, very pleasant to deal with, making our check-in so simple. Thank you Mark.
nice break with dogs
Nice, quiet location. The house had everything we could have asked for. Just the key was only for the security door, we locked ourselves out as we didn`t have a house key. We were lucky that the neighbour was home and had a key to the house. Not sure about the water quality, we got quite sick after drinking filtered tap water.
Apart from that, a pleasant stay. It was great to take our two dogs. The property has a secure yard that was perfect for our little dogs.
Although I will provide additional assistance regarding the rain-water and keys, I am not responsible for guests locking themselves out of the house, or ignoring the information on the website regarding the water supply.
I am happy that you found The Pines clean and comfortable.
Excellent comfortable stay
Don't judge a book by it's cover, we researched many properties and in terms of value for money we could not complain. The communication with Mark was excellent and the house has everything you need for a getaway. Lovely, quiet neighbourhood and I love how pet friendly it was. Beds, shower, lounge, kitchen all very comfortable. Thank you!
