What a wonderful, relaxing stay and fun holiday we had. Kangaroo Island is a magical place and the week that we had here was not nearly enough to experience all the island has to offer.
"Searenity" was a fantastic place to call home and so comfortable we didn't want to leave!

Emu Bay is the perfect location.

Many thanks and we will definitely be back!

Words cannot express how wonderful our experience was on Kangaroo Island and it begins and ends with Herb and Janette. They provided a lovely one bedroom holiday apartment that was clean, up-to-date and filled with everything you needed to be independent. But, besides the apartment, it was Herb and Janette that offered so much more. They gave us recommendations on what to see and do, how to find kangaroos and koalas, and just anything you would ever think of! They are by far the most gracious and wonderful host and hostess we have ever encountered. And besides all of that, Kangaroo Island is Idyllic!

Room Tip: We had the one bedroom holiday apartment, but they also have a another holiday home which can accomm...

We arrived a middle of the day and were met at the airport once in, and warmly welcomed by Herb and Janette, a wonderful five days began. We stayed in the back house and were delighted with the room and all the amenities. Clearly someone put a lot of thought to ensure that all needs had been considered. eight others from our friends also stayed at this Inn as we had all come to Kangaroo Island to attend a wedding in Adelaide. We really appreciated having the in-house amenities and the very attractive spacious living room - we made great use of both as we caught up on news and american sports.
We will definitely look for another opportunity to stay here.

Right now it is freezing in Boston. I am dreaming of being back at Searenity Holiday Accommodations The location, the view from the house and especially the proprietors were extraordinary.The flat is fully equipped with every amenity you could and would need. And anything else that you could need/want either Herb and Janette would get for you or for a short drive to town and you could purchase.I would highly recommend getting an auto to go to see all the KI sights especially the remarkable rocks, the secluded beaches and the seals. There is so much to do I wish we had been there longer than 3 days. KI and Searenity Holiday Accommodations were simply a great experience for us. I give it an EXCELLENT rating.

Arriving exhausted from a busy year and hosting relatives for Xmas, our family of four stepped into the Searenity holiday house and instantly started to relax. Upon meeting Herb and Janette, we were made to feel so welcome. As a family we book apartments or houses over hotels wherever we can for value, space and character and always use Tripadvisor; this was the best equipped home we have stayed in.

The wildlife and scenery was great- we are spoilt coming from Victoria in that we have travelled often to parts of the Great Ocean road, done the Great Ocean walk and been all over Wilson's Promontory which reminded us very much of Kangaroo Island. The difference here apart from the home is clearly Herb and Janette; in fact the only one out of 97 review not to give 5 stars were the couple that didn't meet them!
All of there recommendations were spot on and the "extra miles" we had included Herb demonstrating his remote controlled plane to our son, ferry crossing g weather updates and not least pulling apart one of the arm chairs to retrieve our daughters mobile phone - fantastic stay.

We were welcomed at Searenity by the owners Herb and Jeanette. They not only were excellent hosts but were genuinely happy to share their beautiful island with us. Herb was a retired ranger who worked on the island, so his knowledge of the birds, animals, plants and environment made the visit even better. The house was comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped with every utensil and appliance, and the location was central to our day escapades. We loved taking morning walks to see wallabies hopping by and koalas sleeping in the trees. We spent 3 nights here and wished it was longer! Steve and Jacquie
