Searenity Holiday Accommodation
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The Searenity Holiday Apartment is the perfect place for a couples escape at Emu Bay. The equivalent of a 5 star hotel room, the apartment is immaculate and luxurious comes with a separate kitchen and bathroom and has free wifi. We would have happily stayed longer but the 1 night minimum was perfect as we headed over to the west side of the island for our 2nd night. Herb and Janette are wonderful hosts who are happy to help plan your time on the island too!

When you walk in the front door of Searenity you know straight away that you have made a good choice in accommodation. It is very modern with all expected conveniences, very comfortable and set in a fantastic location. Emu Bay is away from the hustle and bustle of Kingscote but near enough for shopping or restaurants.
Herb & Janette Stichel are excellent hosts who care but don't intrude.
We would recommend Searenity to others without hesitation.

Herb & Janette are the perfect hosts - down to earth, helpful and full of local knowledge to make your stay feel very "homely" - wonderful location with sea views of Emu Bay in a luxury filled self contained apartment. Not a thing hasn't been thought of here!! This was perfect for us, a young couple, and would also be perfect for a family or two! Thank you Herb & Janette, and we look forward to sharing our next adventure on the Island with you here : )

My wife's family from Malaysia joined us as a party of 9 people for a three-day sight-seeing tour of KI adopting Searenity Holiday Home as our base. We were delighted with the cleanliness, functionality and see-facing position on this home. Hosts Herb and Janette were a pleasure to deal with and went out of their way to assist with sensitivity to our needs. Whilst Emu Bay is some distance from the breath-taking attractions of the South-West of the Island it proved to be a beautiful location in its own right. We learnt to it becomes populated by the Island's locals during summer because of the perfect swimming beaches for youngsters. We made use of the excellent kitchen facilities to prepare evening meals choosing to eat out for lunches. Overall, we would highly recommend Searenity and Emu Bay to like-minded travellers.

Herb and Janette were delightful and very helpful. The house was cozy and well appointed. We were a party of 10 with 8 in the house and 2 in the apartment. When we were all together, we stretched, but did not exceed the houses capacity. Our hosts provided breakfast fixings each morning (this may not be standard as we were on a fully catered tour being offered by one of their friends) plenty of fresh foods mostly sourced from local farms – we loved it. Beautiful location on a quite Bay where we found lots of lovely shells. Voted the best place we stayed during our trip by several in our group - The Shangri-La Sydney and the Lizard Island Resort were among the competition!

My family spent three great days at Searenity. The home is beautiful and the view is just as shown on Trip Advisor. Herb and Janette are great hosts and made us feel very much at home - even giving us umbrellas when the forecast was for rain! The house is very clean, modern, has every amenity you could want. If you plan to cook while you are there, the tools that Herb and Janette have placed in the kitchen are incredible. They even have a garlic press!

Searenity is a beautiful place to stay in the gorgeous Emu Bay on KI. We really liked our stay, the place was very clean, comfortable with a very nice view and thanks for the hospitality, the owners were very helpful, We were welcomed by Herb personally and shown around the home and given advice on sightseeing and restaurants which was invaluable
