Have just come back from a girls weekend away. The house was perfect! had everything you need and a great view to add to it. The house was very well looked after. Would highly recommend to stay here. Herb was very friendly and helpful. His prepared map for the best way to get around the island really came in handy. Thanks again!

'Searenity' at Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island, is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay with all mod cons and more. Janette and Herb are wonderful hosts and really enjoy showing you around their bnb as well as being great ambassadors for the whole of the island. They are most helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The lounge area and deck have amazing views of the bay. The beach and rocky area just a short walk away are wonderful for exploring. We visited on the Queen's Birthday long weekend 2020 (which was fairly cold) and found the house comfortable and stylishly furnished with heating in the main living area and electric blankets ont he two Queen sized bed). We wanted for nothing, there were even picnic utensils and thermoses for hot drinks when out and about. Everything was clean and tidy and very well organised. I would highly recommend this bnb for anyone visiting KI and wanting a comfortable, relaxing home to stay in. The location is about 15 - 20 minutes from Kingscote so you will need your own transport to stay at Searenity.

Recently, my husband and I spent 5 glorious nights in a self contained, fully equipped, 1 bedroom apartment at SEARENITY at picturesque Emu Bay, with its long white sandy beach. After disembarking from the ferry at Penneshaw, we arrived at our accommodation to be welcomed by our hosts Herb and Janette who showed us over the spacious apartment with its modern fully equipped kitchen, beautiful en-suite, living/bedroom area with flat screen TV with Foxtel, and free Wi-Fi. There is also a 3 bedroom self-contained house situated at the rear of the property, ideal for larger groups and families. Over the coarse of the following 5 days we visited many of KI's tourist attractions and also wineries, breweries, distilleries, and restaurants, where we thoroughly enjoyed the local produce. Herb was extremely helpful with directions and other advice because of his thorough knowledge of the island On a couple of occasions we even drove the short distance into Kingscote to purchase fresh seafood which we cooked up in our kitchen for dinner. A thoroughly enjoyable 10 out of 10 holiday stay in a serene and tranquil setting. A big thank you to Herb and Janette

Responded 7 Apr 2020
Thank you for taking the time to write your very kind review - much appreciated. We are so pleased you found enough places to visit and enjoy to fill your days even though there were some major tourist attractions closed due to the impact of the recent bushfires. We're glad you chose and enjoyed your stay in our holiday apartment and maybe you'll consider returning to visit and enjoy those places you couldn't see this time.
