“Simply Marvelous”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

If you are looking for an immaculate home stocked with anything you could want for a weeks stay, a peaceful environment, a beautiful location complete with koalas and wallabies, and a welcoming reception from your gracious hosts - Jeanette and Herb, this is the place for you! Herb and Jeanette are former nature preserve rangers and they have a wealth of information to share -if you are interested - about Kangaroo Island and the natural wildlife of the area. We had a most enjoyable stay and have memories to last a lifetime.

We spent a fantastic couple of days with friends at this ideal spot. The hosts are gracious and thoughtful for your every need. The local bird life kept us amused: blue wrens, new holland honeyeaters, pacific gulls and even penguins. The walks on the beach, foreshore and hillside are good for the soul. A top spot to get away from it all and only 15 minutes from Kingscote.

Relaxation doesn't even begin to describe what we felt staying here.

My husband and I truly felt Serenity for the first time at Searenity!!

Contemporary and comfortable. We could not ask for anything more.

Emu Bay is unparalleled. I have never seen a more beautiful beach in my life!

We fell asleep to the sight of koala bears outside our window and we awoke to the sound of penguins outside our door. Truly an incredible experience in Oz!!

If your looking for a haven which is 'far from the madding crowd', then look no further. This is a high standard, we'll cared for accommodation. Herb and Janette are very welcoming and caring hosts who will look after your needs while on Kangaroo Island. Emu Bay is a beautiful beach, which you look out onto - lovely for 'chilling out' on or for strolling on. Don't hesitate to make this your choice.

Room Tip: The apartment is ideal for couples

I could not have asked for more out of a holiday destination. The location is perfect with a view of the pristine coastline from your window and widelife in the trees surrounding it was the ultimate relaxing holiday. The welcoming owners have created modern, well-kept facilities that are second to none with all comforts of home at your fingertips. With so much to see on the island this was the best place to be. Will be back!

Emu Bay is a lovely spot on Kangaroo Island, and this beautifully appointed home is the ideal location for rest, enjoyment and exploration. Every detail is considered and the owners are helpful and anxious to make sure you love their island as much as they do. The home has a great view of the bay and plenty of room for two couples as well as larger groups. No matter where you travel, you would be hard pressed to find many vacation rentals which rival Searenity. If you are headed to KI, you should definitely plan for at least a couple of nights at Searenity.

it was a 20 minute plane trip to Kingscote Airport from Adelaide Airport. we were whisked away to Emu Bay by the proud owners of Searenity Mr Herb & Mr Jeanette Stichel. from the minute we arrived the wave of relaxation hit us instantly. The koalas in the trees, the birds on the white beaches of Emu Bay. The food ! and the rest - I cant remember having a better night's sleep. thankyou for an amazing and relaxing adventure. one for the Bucket List for Sure. Andy Stabolidis.
