What Past Guests Are Saying
Immaculate does not seem to do Searenty justice. It is all you could want in a holiday letting and it overlooks the sea at Emu Bay.The main beach is several kilometers long of white clean sand and has vehiclar access.Close to the property is a small rocky beach.Pelicans and black swans swim in the sea near the jetty.Its as good as it sounds.Emu Bay is convenient to view the Island and get into Kingscote.
The owners are delighful people who live next door but never intrude.They are friendly and helpful and rightly take pride in their very well equipped holiday home.
I would have no hesitation in giving it the highest reccommendation.
Perfect house in a truly beautiful location
Our family of four enjoyed a 1 week stay at Searenity. Despite our arrival late in the evening we were met with a very warm welcome from Herb and Janette. The following morning they sat with us and gave us a fantastic guide as to what to see on Kangaroo Island and how to get there. The local knowledge they shared with us helped to make our holiday really special, from great spots to buy and eat fantastic seafood, to detailed information on the National park walks and lookouts (Herb was a park ranger there); outdoor activities that would appeal to our children; and information about the beaches around the island. The level of service they provide is above and beyond and was very much appreciated.
The house has been fitted out with all you could want for, and then some! Nothing left to chance! Not once was there something we thought of, that wasn't on hand! The property is meticulously maintained, and it was a pleasure to call it home for our time there. The Foxtel was an added bonus for our kids.
The location at Emu Bay was gorgeous and looking out over the water from the front deck was so relaxing. We found Emu Bay to be a great base for us as it was only a 15 minute drive into Kingscote for supermarket/restraunts etc, but being just far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility it offered. The beach at Emu Bay was great for our children for swimming.
All in all it ticked all the boxes. We would highly recommend Searenity. Thanks Herb and Janette for a great stay.
Great family holiday home
This property is an ideal family hoiday home in an ideal family holiday location. The thought that has gone into design, fitout and inclusions meets the needs of anyone wanting a trouble free time away with family. Herb & Janette were ideal hosts - even if they had to shove off to Melbourne while we were in residence! Such was the attention to detail, we had no need to chase them over the airwaves. Their advice on where to go and what to do just prior to them heading off was spot on and greatly appreciated. Our one regret was that we were only there for 5 nights - 2 weeks would have been better - or maybe a month? Dang it all, let's just move in!
Absolute Marvelous Stay
The stay with Janette and Herb was absolutely cordially and gorgeous. The holiday appartment is very nice, warm, clean, calm and tastefully furnished. There is no other way than feeling absolute well there. We can 100% recommend this accommodation.

Very high quality accommodation in beautiful surroundings
Herb and Janette have thought of everything. The flat is of the highest quality with superb fixtures and fittings The view of the bay is wonderful. It is only a short stroll to the beach which has resident pelicans and variety of birds around throughout the day.
If you need to know anything about the island Herb was a ranger there for many years and was very helpful when we stayed. I should say that comprehensive information is supplied anyway.
Superb flat and good value aswell

Searenity by name and Searenity by nature --- just perfect
Our family of three were treated fantastically by our hosts Janette and Herb. We were greeted on our arrival and made to feel at home. Searenity is just a perfect location to use as a base to explore Kangaroo Island. The house is comfortable and we had everything at our finger tips. Little personal inclusions helped to make it feel like a home away from home. We have stayed here before and would stay again as its just so fantastic.
Perth, Western Australia
Lovely place to stay
Friendly hosts await you on this property at Emu Bay. Everything has been thought of in this very comfortable home.
Jess, Jack & Lachlan
Stunning views, private and well equipped.
The house is very comfortable, modern and extremely well equipped. The view is spectacular and due to clever garden design, you can sit on the deck and feel you are the only house at Emu Bay. We found the house to be more than comfortable and easy to feel at home and relaxed, making it a lot easier to travel with a 4 month old baby! Janette and Herb were very friendly and welcoming, without being intrusive. I would recommend 'Searenity' to anyone looking for a home away from home on KI.
We found this property very clean, comfortable, well appointed and well maintained.
Herb and Janette were friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and thoughtful, loaning us umbrellas.
We highly recommend this property
No wonder this house has 5*** !!!
This house is just exceptional. The location is fantastic overlooking the sea, the house is absolutely immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. The layout is simply superb for large groups and the owners are just great - so accommodating with a wealth of knowledge to make sure you make the most out of your stay.

Home away from home
We had a great time at Searentiy. The house is one of the best supplied vacation rental properties we have stayed in. We had 4 adults and 3 kids staying in the house and had plenty of room. Herb and Janette go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Janine and Tim
Paradise at Emu Bay
We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay on Kangaroo Island. The home was comfortable, the views were beautiful and Herb and Janette were great hosts, helping us make the most of our time on the island with their advice and tips. My only regret is that we spent 5 days there as it should have been at least a week. Kangaroo Island is bigger than you think and we went way over the 500 kilometers allotted by our rental car company. When we return we will stay at Searenity again and allow more time for sitting on the deck and enjoying the view with a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
We could not have wished for better accommodation in a better lo
It was a pleasure to deal with Herb and Janette from the time of our very first contact. They had thought about everything than any family might want and provided it. Emu Bay is very peaceful and the views from Searenity are superb. Searenity provides all modern facilities in a very convenient location for exploring the Island, or just chilling out. Our week there passed all too quickly.
Graeme and Eleanor
Every comfort with the loveliest of hosts!
Herb and Janette were the perfect hosts and their lovely home provided us with all we neeeded to make our stay at Emu Bay a wonderful experience. Being two couples and having the benefits of an ensuite and a bathroom plus a lovely home with views out to the ocean was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you Herb and Janette.
Attention to every detail with stunning views
We stayed at Searenity with four children and two adults! What a wonderful experience it was for all of us. It catered for our every need from beach toys to first aid kits. The wi-fi definitely made our 9 year old happy!!
All the furnishing were tasteful and the kitchen has everything we needed. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Emu Bay was a delightful beach both for beach play and exercise.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone with children!!
The one-bedroom unit is fantastic but less marketed than the bigger unit, thus often overlooked (it is not even obvious on the website). Absolutely lovely apartment and cheap given what the owner asks for a night.
Victoria Point QLD
Truly enjoyable holiday!!
The house was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on K.I.
Wonderful location and great accomodation on Kangaroo Island
If you want to relax on Kangaroo Island, this is the place to go. The view from the front porch is extraordinary and the town is a great location not far from Kingscote.
The quality of the furnishings and the venue was first class. Nothing was overlooked or missed out. Very clean and modern accomodation. They even had the internet!
We will return again for another trip.
Thanks to hosts Herb and Janette for a wonderful relaxing location.
Stayed for the weekend - had plenty of room, was luxurious and well maintained. After travelling in a car all day around Kangaroo Island, there was nothing better than coming back to accommodation which had all the amenities one requires to relax. Herb and Janette were fantastic hosts - definite 10/10. Would not hesitate recommending this place to couples looking for a romantic get away (which was us) or families (has 3 bedrooms, pay tv and wifi).
Stayed in the luxurious 3 bedroom house with my partner for a weekend. Hosts were wonderful - sent us a amenities list to help with our packing and gave us advice on the best way to see the island.
House was in immaculate condition! 10/10. Short walk to beautiful swimming beach. Lovely ocean views. Sleeps 8 people with 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. No complaints - will definitely recommend Searenity to anyone heading to Kangaroo Island and look forward to going back!
excellent accomodation and lovely hosts!
We stayed for a week at Searenity (2 couples)and loved every minute. The accomodation was clean, spacious, well equiped and in a fab location (Emu Bay is the best place on the island to stay- in our opinion)
Herb and Janette are really helpful and went out of their way to provide tips and ensure we made the most of our stay.
Herb even helped us to gut and scale our catch, after our first ever fishing trip.
we highly recommend this accomodation.
Sheidow Park, SA
Wow - wonderful accomodation in a wonderful location.
The house was superb. Even with 5 adults and 2 children, we did not feel on top of each other. The facilities in the house were second to none - everything had been thought of. The location at Emu Bay is stunning with such a lovely view from the lounge of the house. Kangaroo Island itself it simply breathtaking.
Peter and Ros
A fantastic view from the very clean and comfortable living area
We were greeted on arrival by Herb and Janet who explained what we needed to know in the short term and offered assistance readily if we needed it later. The house was excellently positione and we saw dolphins from the front door on a couple of mornings.The house was very well equipped and was a delight to stay in.
Our view from the littlt deck out the front was very impressive. the only thing missing was an outdoor eating table for a group to enjoy the great summer weather. We also found that $30 per night extra for each guest when two were students and two were pensioners was a little steep.
Everything about the place was fantastic.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation had everything you could wish for and had been equipped with great taste. The property enjoys splendid views of the bay. We felt totally comfortable and relaxed, both with the accommodation and the proprietors.
Outstanding holiday experience
Our family of four stayed at the Searenity Holiday Home for 3 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is spacious, extremely clean, very well equipped, and with amazing sea view. Our host Jannett and Herb are fantastic, they provided us with lots of useful information, and have even taken us to see a local house decorated with amazing Christmas lighting. We would highly recommend this five star holiday house to anyone.

Everything you could want for a relaxing holiday experience
You could not ask for more! A wsrm welcome, a property that you would think is brand new with all your needs covered and wonderful views over the sea. If you want to enjoy the very best of a Kangaroo Island holiday then put Searenity high on your list.
Great Host / Home
Home very clean
Great host on arrival
Rang to say come early as home vaccated early
We spent 2 nights in Searenity Holiday Home with our friends, and we were very surprised finding us in a five star luxury resort. The owners did an excellent job to spoil their guests with all the comfort you can imagine. The house has a beautiful setting, directly looking to the ocean, if you are not in a hurry to explore the island you can spend your time on the sofa just watching Emu bay's beautiful beaches.
The perfect holiday retreat
My wife and I were married recently and we chose to stay at the Searenity Holiday Home for a week-long getaway. We could not have chosen a better location. Beautiful ocean views from the doorstep of this well appointed, modern holiday home was one of many highlights from a wonderful holiday. Herb and Janette are the most friendly couple you will ever meet; the warm, friendly greeting and island travel tips we recieved upon arrival were invaluable and greatly appreciated. This really is a value for money retreat at it's best. If you are planning a holiday to Kangaroo Island, I strongly suggest you give Herb and Janette a call.
Wonderful experience, great hosts, beautiful view
Searenity is a wonderful place to stay if visiting Kangaroo Island. The view from the living area is stunning. Herb and Jeanette were brilliant hosts. The property was spotless and in great condition. We would highly recommend staying here.
I think about our stay at Searenity on a daily basis, months aft
My daughter and I arrived at night in the dark thanks to the helpful directions provided us. The house was quiet, beautiful and warm, just the perfect size. When we woke in the morning - wow!! What a gorgeous sunrise over the water. The house is in a perfect location providing incredible views. We spent a lot of time roaming the island but were so comfortable when we arrived to Searenity in the evening. Owners Herb and Janette were out of the country during our stay but made sure someone was there to take care of any needs. They were so helpful with all of my questions even before I had booked the property. I only hope I can return to meet them in person and stay longer!!
NIck and family
A1 facilities and view, friendly and helpful hosts.
A modern house with a lovely view and surrounds. Emu bay is a scenic spot, convenient location and lovely beach. The hosts were very helpful, warm and friendly. We will return as soon as possible.
Wish I was there!
Peaceful, beautiful and full of everything you need on holiday
We spent a short 4 days at Searenity and combined time at home with travel around KI. The house was ideal as we could cook when we wanted to but also were close enough to Kingscote to go out for dinner on other nights.
We all slept so well each night and really enjoyed both sitting outside reading and inside chatting or watching TV.
The internet was very cheap and meant that I could keep in touch with my work even though I had no mobile phone (this being due to no Optus coverage, not Searenity).
In general a great location, a great house and a great time was had by all!
Oxford, United Kingdom
Everything you could wish for in holiday rental
We stayed in the self contained apartment attached to the owners' house. It was perfect for the two of us-beautifully decorated, immaculately clean with a very well equipped separate kitchen. Herb and Janette were very welcoming and gave us good advice on which parts of the island to visit in our short stay.
You will love it here
A group of 5 of us (all adults) stayed at Searenity for 5 nights in early February 2011. Searenity lives up to its name. On the edge of the small town of Emu Bay with glorious views over the bay and a short walk from the fine white sand beach Searenity provides a quite, very comfortable, and extremely well appointed base from which to tour Kangaroo Island or to simply chill out and relax. The owners, who live right next door but do not intrude on their visitors, are extremley friendly and very helpful. They have thought of everything possible to make Searenity a home from home for those staying there. We had a great time and would heartily recommend Searenity to anyone looking to stay on the island.
Los Altos, California
Stunningly Beautiful and relaxing
We loved staying at serenity. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
The house was clean and well maintained. It was tastefully decorated and comfortable.
The house had stunning views. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and looking out to the ocean.
The beach at Emu Bay was beautiful with stretches of white sand. We enjoyed jogging along the beach with the water lapping at our feet. It was truly serene!
Kanagaroo island has a variety of wild life. It was a once in a lifetime experience to see Koalas, Kangaroos and Wallabies up close. The sea lions, the seals and the strange stone formations all add to the islands attractions. We would strongly recommend the bird show on the island.
We will definitely return to this place again and stay at Searenity to enjoy its unspoilt beauty.
Beautiful, well equipped vacation home on picturesque bay
Searenity was a fabulous property and Herb and Jeanette made us feel right at home. We needed to check in earlier than anticipated and they were so nice about accomodating us. The home itself was clean, well equipped and had all the comforts we were looking for. The kids enjoyed the large flat screen tv and the adults enjoyed the beautiful views and peaceful setting. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Dallas, TX USA
Extremely Successful Self Guided Trip To australia, Kangaroo Is
We could not have enjoyed a trip more than this one. It was our first visit to australia and we did all the planning, driving and visiting on our own. We even started speaking the language. We arrived in Melbourne, toured the Botanic and Victoria Gardens (highly recommended) drove the Mornington Peninsular, crossed on Ferry at Portsea, drove the Great Ocean Rd, to adelaide. Enjoyed Cleland Wildlife Park, and spent two days touring the adelaide's Botanic Gardens and Zoo. Took Ferry to Kangaroo Is, and stayed at Searenity Holiday house for approx three weeks and just took our time and traveled the island in great detail. We then took the Dukes highway and drove back to Mellbourne (Magnolia Hotel) where we stayed another two days and went back to the Botanic Gardens, then the shopping area on Collins street, where my wife bought three pair of shoes and was thrilled with the selection.
We believe that the Searenity house owned by Janette and Herb Stichel is the best place that we have ever stayed on all of our worldly trips. Very modern, clean, great location, and very quiet. Ocean View out the large floor to ceiling windows. Fantastic attention to comfort and detail and wonderful host. We travel extensively and this is by far the best trip that we have taken. Highly recommend the facilities and if you want to see Penguins, Koala, Kangaroo, Wallaby and all sorts of colorful birds, then go to Kangaroo Island.
Great place to stay!
We love this place from the first moment we walked into this holiday home! Fully equipped with everything that we could possibly think of, extremely clean, beautiful and well decorated home! Feel like our second home.
The owners,Herb and Janette, are such a lovely couple and gave us a warm welcome after we arrived at Kangaroo Island. They even provided us with some tips on the best spots to visit around the island. Thanks so much Herb & Janette!
Great location too as close to the main town Kingscote. Will definitely book this place again for longer period when come back! Highly recommended accommodation if you visit Kangaroo Island!
Gav and Jan
Peace, quite and Searenity
The house was immacuately presented. Spotless, modern and very possible need provided for. Located at Emu Bay overlooking the ocean. Short stroll to the beach and 20km to Kingscott for shopping. The first minute you walked into the house it felt like home. Magazines on the coffee table, throw over rug on the lounge, the small things which made it such an enjoyable place to stay. The name of the property says it all - Searenity.

Searenity - The Name Says It all - A Holiday to Remember
My sister and I took our elderly mother for a week's holiday on Kangaroo Island and had the fortune of booking Herb and Janette's lovely modern home at Emu Bay. It was a home away from home, except I would have liked to take the home back with me. Exceptionally clean and fastidiously maintained, the house caters for everything you would need and would also ideally suit those travelling light, not having the ability to bring things with them. Don't worry, it is all there. We just loved the big picture windows in the spacious living areas, overlooking Emu Bay, watching the dolphins jumping in and out of the water. The house is spacious and very tasteful, lots of built ins everywhere and lovely bath rooms. As we stayed for a week we utilised the laundry facilities which has a front loader and dryer. Everything is catered for as if it were your own home. The location is fantastic, not far from Kingscote and lots of scenic points around Emu Bay itself. We were able to tour most of the Island in the time we were there, both north and south. It's easy to get around and the scenery is just stunning, particularly the coastlines of KI. Upon our arrival Herb and Janette welcomed us and took us to the home showing us all the features. They live close by which is great. The location is quiet with lots of wonderful birdlife. Lots of blue wrens that do not seem bothered by people around them. All in all, a superb holiday in a great location in a magnificent home run by fantastic hosts. Could not fault anything. We have booked again for next year.

Fantastic facility, hospitality and value
From the personal welcome to final departure the hospitality and service offered by Herb and Janette was "unbeatable". The "home"(more than a house) had every facility you could need (plus more) and is one anyone would be proud to live in. Great location in walking distance to jetty and beach. We love Emu Bay - this was our 4th visit and we have already booked no. 5 - can't wait!
Pearl in the Oyster
Extremely good value for money. The house is clean (I'm a clean freak) and well equipped with everything you would ever need for either a short or long stay, mattress was heaven to sleep on. Heaps of room to spread out in the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen areas, just perfect for families. Good mobile connection which allowed us to dial into the internet.
I suggest you drive into Kingscote (15mins from Emu Bay) and grab some groceries at the well stocked IGA supermarket and also some bottles of wine at the bottle shop, as there are no stores in Emu Bay.
Watching the sun set over the point to the east (bit like Ayres Rock) with a glass of wine in our hand we knew this is what Searenity is all about.
My husband and I travel quite extensively around the world for business and usually stay in apartment style accommodation that have ratings no less then a 4star. Searentiy did not disappoint and if I were you I wouldn't look any further. Thank you Herb and Janette you both have done a fantastic job of providing an outstanding holiday home.
New Brunswick, Canada
Our family of 4 stayed at Searenity for 4 wonderful nights and couldn't have asked for a better accomodation. It was modern, bright and spacious and sparkling clean with a nice view of the ocean within a short stroll to the beach. Every detail was considered for self catering and comfort and the house is thoughtfully laid out. Our twins slept in their own single beds and enjoyed not sharing a bed as they often do on vacations.
The owners, Herb and Janet were very helpful and kind without being at all intrusive. It is obvious that they care about their guest's experience and have a love for the area that they want to share.
Kangaroo Island was a highlight in our month long Aussie vacation. There is a lot to see and do and Searenity was a great home base for our adventures. No matter where you base yourself, there is a fair amount of driving involved in seeing the island's highlights and Emu Bay was a great place to come home to in the evening. During our evening strolls at Searenity we encountered pelicans, penguins, a koala and we could see signs of a wallaby or kangaroo that visited the house nightly.
If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay with good karma, Searenity is a perfect choice
Perfect Stay on KI
We stayed at Searenity Holiday Home in Feburary 2010.It was great. It is a perfect home to discover KI. You feel at home from the very first moment. The house is fully equipped, in great shape and lovely interior. Kitchen and Bathrooms are definitly high above standard. Unfortunately we could only stay 2 nights. Next time it will be longer for sure.
ein kleines Paradies auf Erden
Beschreibung und Bilder im Internet haben mich verlockt, diese Unterkunft zu buchen.
In Wirklichkeit war sie NOCH SCHÖNER als erhofft.
Die Lage erlaubt einen traumhaften Blick über Emu Bay. Das Haus ist bis ins letzte Detail stilvoll gestaltet, perfekt ausgestattet, wunderbar geräumig, absolut sauber. Es gibt wirklich keinen Wunsch, der offen bleibt. Nur ein kurzer Weg führt zum herrlichen Sandstrand.
Herb und Janette sind glänzende Gastgeber. Wir wurden freundlich empfangen, durften herzliche Gespräche führen, bekamen jede denkbare Hilfe, und hatten zugleich allen Freiraum der Welt.
So Gott will, wird dieser erste nicht der letzte Aufenthalt an diesem paradiesischen Ort gewesen sein.

The Serenity of Searenity!
I travelled to Kangaroo Island with my husband, and two other couples early February and we all stayed at Searenity. It was wonderful!! Having stayed in holiday homes before, this one was by far my favourite. The layout of the house was perfect with living areas in the front and bed & bathrooms in the back. It provided a beautiful view of Emu Bay and is only a short walk to the Jetty and the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed (some holiday homes only provided a limited amount of cooking items and utensils but this one left us searching for nothing)! All linens and towells were also provided including towells for the beach and deck chairs.
Our hosts were so friendly, greeting us upon arrival and giving us ample information on our area. Herb is a retired park ranger so he was able to give us lots of info about the wildlife. He even came and got us one evening when he discovered a koala in a tree by our house! They are located in the neighbouring house so very handy if there is anything you need during your stay (including a cup of flour, thanks Janette!)
The third bedroom in this place is set up with two twin beds and a bunk bed so one couple was in twins but no complaints. The beds were all comfortable. Ideally this place would be perfect for two families of four. We were aware of the bed confirguration prior to our arrival as they have a very accurate description of the holiday home on their web-site.
The holiday home is located at Emu Bay which does not have a general store of any kind nor any restaurants. This adds to the serenity of "Searenity". However, it is only a 15 min drive to Kingscote which has all you would need.
I would not hesitate to recommend Searenity to others, we enjoyed our stay immensly.
Thank you Herb and Janette!

A Memorable Stay
We stayed at Janette and Herb place last December. It was an amazing stay and they really contributed to make our stay a memorable one.
I definitely recommand to everybody to stay with them.
The place is very cleaned and very well decorated.

Searenity on K.I.......the place to be......
When preparing our 3 weeks trip in Australia, we're looking for a holiday home for our 4 days stay in Kangaroo Island.
In our best dreams, w've imagined a very nice and quiet spot close to Kingscote.....
Our dreams became reality and much more !!!!!!
Don't waste your time, book Searenity as quick as possible....it's really the place to be !!!!
Everything is great.....the spot, the house....
Why? Because of Janette and Herb who managed this Holiday Home for you. Thank you and BRAVO!!!
Because of you, our best Australian souvenir is Kangaroo Island......
Our Best Stay While In Australia
Searenity is the best and most relax stay for our 17 days trip in Australia. It's
so comfortable that we all feel home coming. All bedrooms, living room and
dinning room are nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with not only
stove and fridge but also with kitchen ware from fine wine glasses to oven. It is
also out of our expectation to find candle stand and we can do a wonderful
candle light dinner.
The host - Janette and Herb are very nice and helpful. We feel that we are their
VIP guests although we only stay there for 3 days.
Definitely, I will re-visit Searenity for my next vacation on Kangaroo Island
We had a great stay at Searenity.
We were two couples and stayed two nights. Not long enough as we felt a day
just relaxing in those lovley soft leather chairs looking seawards was needed.
Searenity is very well named. Lots of sea and peace and quiet.
The facilities were absolutely top standard with our every need and comfort
thought about and provided. Our hosts were warm, friendly and made sure we
were settled and happy.
The views are stunning
Searenity is great value for money and is highly recommended as a place to stay. The home is tastefully decorated, clean and modern looking. Everything you need is provided including a washing machine and dryer and small things like buckets and spades for the little ones. We had 8 people staying over the Xmas period and all had a great time. The kitchen is well equipped including a dishwasher and was more than large enough to prepare our Xmas Day meal. The views from the deck are spectacular and provide the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of bubbly overlooking the beautiful blue ocean. Herb and Jeanette are wonderful hosts with lots of local knowledge. They do everything they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. Nothing is too much trouble for them - all you have to do is ask. This is the second time I have stayed at Searenity and will hopefully be back for NYE in Dec 2010! Can't wait.
Searenity is the perfect holiday home
Their website said "Just sit back, relax and enjoy the panoramic sea view" We
Thank you Herb and Janette for provide us with a wonderful holiday home for
our family holiday. It had and everything and much more than we could ask for
to ensure it felt like a home away from home.
We plan on coming back!!
Great stay in Emu Bay
Recently stayed at Searenity at Emu Bay on KI for a week with our two small children. Property was beautiful - modern, spacious and clean, with everything included we could have wanted. Hosts Herb and Janette were very welcoming & gave us some useful tips on things to do locally. Location was just beautiful - fantastic beach for fishing and for kids - long, white and very safe. Had a great week and plan to come back again.
South Australia, and the UK
Home from Home
Searenity was just as advertised. The owners welcomed us to Searenity, and everything was perfect.
It was great to have 2 bathrooms, and the bedrooms were decorated differently which was a great touch.
There were toys, and sand toys for any children staying, and a fishing bucket for the fishermen.
The location was great, having breakfast and watching the sea. The amenities were very well appointed.
There was everything one needed in the house, and if anything else was needed the owners were just a few yards away.
I would recommend Searenity for a very relaxing, comfortable stay at Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island. Our visitors from the UK who were with us were very impressed.

comfortable and very well appointed with everything you may need during
We had a very memorable holiday and will certainly be returning next year.

How's the Searenity?
My elderly parents joined my husband and I for our 4 day mini-break. The property was well appointed with everything you'd ever want. We even tried the slow cooker out and loved that it cooked out delicious meal while we were out sightseeing for the day!
Herb and Janette were perfect hosts - always there if we needed them but not intrusive in any way!
We loved Herb's parting gift to us.... a peak at a penguin nesting right under our noses!
If ever we return to Kangaroo Island we'll be sure to stay here!

Super value on KI !!
Searenity has fantastic views over Emu Bay. The house is very recently built, beautifully maintained inside and out and has an amazing array of extras and little touches that make you feel right at home - everything you could want in a house. The owners are very welcoming and go out of their way to assist in any way they can. It's an easy 15min drive to Kingscote and an ideal base for touring on Kangaroo Island. I would highly recommend Searenity to other travelers.

Quality holiday rental
When we walked into Searenity we thought that it could only be a few months old at most. What a surprise to discover that it was 3 years old. The condition of the house is superb. It is beautifully cared for and maintained. Add to that the friendly welcome from the owners, the beautiful views of Emu Bay and the sea, the seclusion and quiet...what more could we have asked for? We thoroughly recommend Searenity to anyone who is willing to respect the quality of the house, its decor and contents. We found the location ideal for exploring the Island and looked forward each day to returning to this beautiful, peaceful spot.
What a delightful experience!
What a wonderful place for a relaxing break.
The owners have created a holiday home second to none, which they are passionate about. And it shows. Nothing is too much trouble, because they are determined that your holiday should be a success. They have thought of everything.
The views from the property are stunning and seem a million miles from city life
We liked everything and disliked nothing.
Go there soon, you won't be disappointed
Highly recommended for all travellers.
Excellent Value For Money
What a wonderful place to stay. Fantastic location, views and presentation. Unbelievable value for money. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
We had a newborn and a two year old and were delighted to see that they could cater for us with a cot, high chair and even a toy box!
