Herb & Janette were welcoming, attentive and informative hosts, who went out of their way to help make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. The apartment is beautifully appointed with all we needed plus more. There is a wonderful view out over Emu Bay and the location is perfect fro exploring the Island. Excellent value for money!

What a great place.
House is immaculate, 3 bedrooms , plenty of space, a1 kitchen and laundry facilities and a gas BBQ were great.
Herb and Janette outstanding hosts, helpful and the care and presentation of the house was first rate.
Emu Bay is a terrific place to stay , close to Kingscote and central in Kangaroo Island (KI) which makes it an ideal place to stay on on KI, the family had a lovely time. Would recommend in a heartbeat. We came from Singapore to attend and could not be happier to stay at ps Herb I think we left the heater- air cond when we left , sorry she was a cold day !

Great location and excellent view!
The hosts are very thoughtful and everything you need has been considered. Definitely go back again. House itself is very clean, fully equiped kitchen and even with foxtel!
Herb and Janette are very nice and welcoming, the tips they gave to us were very helpful. Herb even came by in one of the raining day and gave us some umbrallas! We were very grateful to have such a wonderful host for our trip in KI.
10/10 holiday house, highly recommended!

We stayed for a week in the holiday apartment on Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island and found it a quiet retreat with a comfortable bed, excellent view, central location for day trips around Kangaroo Island, so much so we did not want to leave when our time was up.

Herb and Janette were superb hosts who met us on arrival and provided knowledgable advice on what to see and answers to any of our questions about the local attractions. The facilities were excellent value for money and we found we were provided all the extras we needed, as standard. With a quality TV and free Wi-Fi our technology needs were met as well. We wish that all our other accommodation was this standard on our travels for the price!

Stayed: March 2012

We had the most amazing time celebrating New Year on Kangaroo Island and staying at the Searenity Holiday Apartment just made it even more perfect. Herb and Janette were fantastic hosts and were always happy to provide us with tips on places to visit and recommendations on where to grab great local produce. The apartment is so well equipped, clean and well designed. We absolutely loved our time at Emu Bay, it's a beautiful location and we would highly recommend it.

Where can I start, everything is perfect with this accommodation! Searenity is well situated on KI and the host was very welcoming upon arrival at the property. The accommodation has everything you could think of, the kitchen was very well equipped with the day-to-day cooking utilities (we were quite surprised to find a bottle of brand new tomato sauce in the cupboard along with glad-wrap, foil paper and etc).

Simply put, the accommodation could easily eclipse a number of 5-star hotels I have stayed in the past! I would highly recommend Searenity to anyone who intends to stay on KI!

Our family have been staying at Searenity every year since 2008 and will be again shortly in 2012. This would be the first time I have ever provided feedback on any business or service before but I think when you have experinced the quality and consistency that we have over the last 5 years it is worth commenting on. There are many choices on where we could go each year for our summer holidays but we keep returning to Searenity becuase of what Herb and Jeanette have created. Yes the accomodation is beautifully presented and the location is perfect but its also the warmth and graciousness of the hosts which has made our stay each time fun, relaxing, enjoyable and memorable. Congratulations Herb and Jeanette
