Hosts are very nice and friendly. They will recommend you places to go and how to plan the route. There's basically almost everything in the house that you will/might need. The house is very neat and tidy. And the environment is peaceful and amazing. Will recommend to anyone who's going to kangaroo island!

Over the years we have had good and fair experiences with B & B style accommodation, so we tread cautiously when trying a new site. We looked for something with a view on a 3 night visit to Kangaroo Island and found Searenity. It is fabulous. A stand alone home next to the hosts home with a view of the... More

We loved our stay in the one bedroom apartment. Very clean, lovely decor & great location. The hosts Herb & Janette were very welcoming & had great knowledge of the island. Perfect place for our wedding anniversary escape.

Our hosts were extremely inviting, friendly and helpful. They offered sightseeing recommendations as we did not have a set plan and also offered help day and night. The apartment was extremely well equipped and in a great location. Our experience was wonderful and we would recommend anyone to stay here in the future.

Emu Bay is a great destination on KI- close to Kingscote which is the biggest town, but peaceful, remote and pristine.

If you are planning a trip to KI then you can't go past this excellent accommodation at Emu Bay, perfect for the family with all the facilities and more that you could want.

We had the perfect stay, at the perfect place. Tons of value for the price. There were four of us (two couples), so one bedroom with a bunch of bunk beds wasn't used. The home was seriously comfortable, and the hosts were outstanding in providing advice for our three-day stay. As one of us said, "This place is a winner!"

We spent two nights at this delightful apartment which is a great place to explore Kangaroo Island. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the place is comfortable and excellently equipped for self-catering. The location, a short walk from the foreshore (where we saw an echidna out for an evening stroll) is perfect.
