“Nice quiet holiday home”
Reviewed 16 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This was a lovely holiday home with wonderful hosts - who greeted us with warmth and friendliness. They gave us great insight into what to visit .
The house is furnished beautifully - it would have been nice to have some milk in the fridge - and only basic tea & coffee supplied .
Emu Bay is a tiny little town with no shops and the drive into the nearest town is only 15 mins- but at night after a meal in town the drive home can be a little stressful with all the wildlife around. But it is a very pretty and quiet town - with a beautiful beach not far to walk along - we did enjoy our stay .

“Immensely satisfied!”
Reviewed 24 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The house has a most beautiful sea view and is immaculately kept. There are sheep grazing on the land next to it and 2 wallabies came by to visit one evening as we were reversing the car out of the driveway.

Herb and Janette are good hosts; Herb gave us a quick overview of KI when we arrived in the early afternoon and even suggested the places we could visit on our first day and Janette kindly called Andermel Cafe when she learnt that we intended to go there for a late lunch of marron.

There was some digging at the back of a neighbouring property during the period we were there and we had to be careful that the windows were closed when we were out so that we would not return to a layer of dust on the table and counter tops and the floor.

Our only regret was that we did not have the luxury of time to have a barbeque and enjoy the sea breeze at the front porch!

Thank you for your kind review,we are pleased to know you enjoyed your stay. The excavations on the property behind Searenity have now been completed and we have also had some rain which settled the work site and are thankful we no longer have the dust problem.

“Lovely and peaceful luxuary one bedroom apartment with great hosts”
Reviewed 28 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed in the one bedroom apartment for a week and had a lovely time. It is very quiet and peaceful there. The apartment is very well equipped, far above standard for holiday rentals. It was also very clean and well maintained. Wifi was provided for free. The beach is just a short walk away and the location is suitable to explore the whole island if you don't want to move around.
The hosts Herb and Janette welcomed me on arrival and were happy to help with tips for places to see and walks to do. Herb knows the island very well and can give excellent advise. I would happily stay there again.

“Highly recommended - a wonderful gem in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed in the couples apartment and were fortunate to get a tour of the much larger separate holiday home during our 5 days - both are spectacular and immaculate. The couples apartment has a large fridge, microwave and two burner stove with all the cookware you need and a few nice extras. You are also about 15 minutes from Kingscote if you want to eat out. It is very well built - noise was not an issue It actually could be classified as an eco-lodge given the rainwater catchment, solar power, recycling, etc. They are perfectly situated - at the end of a paved (sealed) road with the occasional koala in a tree or echidna wondering by and spectacular views. Its a quick walk to the pier and the beach or just up the hill where we encountered kangaroos and beautiful view of the bay.

You could not ask for more knowledgeable and gracious hosts who are available to help you plan your time on the island - not only have the lived on the island for years, Herb was park ranger and has wonderful insights.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at Searenity for 3 nights as part of a 3 1/2 week trip which included 5 self-catering stays of 3-4 days each in South Australia, Queensland and Sydney. All were highly rated on Tripadvisor and all were great - Searenity, though was the best, outstanding from the moment we arrived. We loved the coastal views and the peace. Also the welcome and attention we received from Herb and Janette was pitched just right - there without being stifling. We appreciated the help from Herb with touring suggestions and showing us a visiting koala in the trees 30 metres from the house. Emu Bay is beautiful - the jetty, beach, pelicans yet only 15 mins into Kingscote for all supplies. Totally recommend this accommodation.

“Exceeded expectation! Just wonderful!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Searenity for a bit over a week and had a wonderful time. The location is excellent with amazing views of the bay from the deck, 1 min drive to arguably the most beautiful beach on KI, quiet location but only 15 mins to Kingscote. The accommodation itself is outstanding with everything you could ask for. The beds are so comfortable that I really didn't look forward to sleeping in my own bed again! Ideal for children too. Wonderful hosts who are completely helpful and friendly yet not intrusive.
Thank you Herb and Jeanette for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back!
