Interaction with guestsWe will meet you on arrival to give you the key and answer any questions you may have and therefore would appreciate if you could let us know your anticipated time of arrival once you have made your travel arrangements to the Island. We only need an approx. time. (If you are travelling on the Sealink Ferry from Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island you need to book your ferry passage in advance, as it is not an “arrive and drive on” ferry service).

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic place to stay on kangaroo Island
Stayed for a 5 day sightseeing trip around KI, well located as a base. Top class accom, great view across bay and last residence upon an open hillside. We saw an echidna in the front garden and lots of kangaroos grazing outside our window. A great location to relax quietly after a big day out visiting KI highlights. Herb and Janette made us feel very welcome, provided advice on the best places to go and were always available if we needed anything. I really liked being close enough to Kingscote for supplies but able to enjoy the peaceful solitude of Emu Bay. A close drive to Lavendar Farm for a great coffee , scones or meal. Brewery and Winery close by as well.

Excellente petit appartement
Sejour de 2 nuits dans ce petit appartement tres bien amenagé (chambre, cuisine, salle de douche, wc independant), a 2 mins d'une belle plage et au calme. Pas de lave vaisselle ni machine a laver mais pas un probleme. Proprietaires d'une extreme gentillesse, connaissant tres bien l'ile. Je recommande !

Idyllic setting, stunning property
My husband and I stayed several nights in the Searenity House at the rear of our host’s own beautiful home. We were most impressed by the standard of appointments and the obvious thought that had gone into setting up the house for guests. Although there were only the two us, the property can accommodate up to 8 persons with ease. Herb being a long-time local provided much helpful advice on how to best use our time on the island. Searenity is a quiet retreat overlooking the picturesque Emu bay and is well located for exploring the rest of Kangaroo Island.

Like staying with friends
This was the best holiday home we have stayed in. The house is perfectly located, with uninterrupted views over the sea, which we enjoyed each morning while having breakfast. Emu Bay is a quiet but beautifully located township. It is an easy 15 minutes drive into Kingscote, the largest town on Kangaroo Island. Herb and Janette provided a very warm welcome, showing us around the house and providing an itinerary for the first day of our visit. They both are a wealth of information about what to do and where to go on the island. We would certainly advise making use of their knowledge. The house was extremely comfortable and exceptionally well equipped, full of thoughtful touches that made our stay feel as though we were with friends. Herb and Janette were unobtrusive but accessible throughout our stay. We cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough.

Than you for taking the time to submit your very kind review. Our goal has been to make it a holiday "home" rather than a holiday "house". We are pleased to know your stay at Searenity Holiday Home met your expectations. It was lovely to meet you both.

Searenity is paradise
The house is amazingly serviced, with absolutely everything. The views are just gorgeous... sunrises and sunsets bring beautiful colours to the bay, and the private entry road means no traffic worries so the kids can play safely and with plenty of room. Just a short walk down to the jetty for a quick fish, to launch your boat, or to go the picturesque foreshore grassed area & playground. The hosts have been on the Island for the better part of their lives, and what they don't know about it would fit on a postage stamp (remember them?!) They are happy to let you explore on your own agenda, or are a great source of ideas and inspiration; it's never too much trouble to ask their advice. They are so friendly and welcoming. Thank you Herb & Janette. Can't wait to get back to Serenity at Emu Bay KI!

BEST EVER ACCOMMODATION AND HOSTS
We absolutely had the best time on Kangaroo Island due to Herb and Jeanette's warm hospitality. They were more like new friends than just hosts. Serenity Holiday House is just perfect, from the moment you step in the door you enter a very clean, spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with everything you need for your stay right down to the beach towels and cooler. Pride of ownership really stands out here. Herb and Jeanette even offered to get us groceries for our first breakfast as time was tight to get food our first night in. The view from the front deck is amazing, and you just want to sit down with a glass of wine and look out on Emu Bay (which we did), very peaceful. Herb and Jeanette are so warm and happy to help you in any way, from planning your time, where to go, finding you Koalas and fairy penguins to driving you on the beach. They are happy to have you join them on their morning walk (it's early) and point out local kangaroos, ant colonies, and tell you about the island. They love what they do and it shows. Nothing was ever too much to ask. They had great suggestions and tips for where to go and what to do to make the most of your visit. We were two couples travelling with our teenage daughters for three weeks in Australia and none of our accommodations even came close to Serenity Holiday House. We wished we had more time so we could have stayed longer on KI. I should add that it is only a few minutes walk to the beach(and it's a lovely long sand beach) and very safe for the girls to do on their own, only a short drive to Kingscote to get groceries and more wine, and our tour to swim with the dolphins started right at Emu bay....so convenient. We will be highly recommending this place to all our friends.

Amazing
I was organising a family holiday for 17 people ranging in ages 3 - 81, Janette and Herb were very helpful during the booking process and offered assistance over and above our expectations. We felt like they were our friends before we got there. The information that we received made it so easy with packing and the directions led us straight to the front door. The house had everything that you could possibly need on holiday plus more. Their attention to detail was excellent. The house was very clean and the decor was calm and relaxing. I particularly liked the way that all bedrooms had different colour towels - that way we were able to identify them easier. On our final morning they even came with us and took our family photos, which we will treasure forever. We had a fantastic holiday and made some very special memories. Thank you Janette and Herb.

Nice quiet holiday home
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!
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.

About the neighbourhood
Searenity Holiday Home is situated in Emu Bay on the North Coast and is only a short drive from Kingscote, Kangaroo Island’s largest town. Emu Bay is known as the home of the 'Long White Beach' and is a haven for holiday makers. Its beautiful 4km sandy beach offers safe swimming in its turquoise clear water and vehicle access makes it a favourite destination for locals and tourists alike. Anglers can try their luck from the jetty or launch their boats from the access ramp or take one of the fishing charters that operate out of Emu Bay. Based in Emu Bay our guests can explore the delightful North Coast with its mixture of tall cliffs, deserted sandy coves and beaches lining the coast and conservation parks, hills, valleys and rolling farmland meeting the sea. The South Coast attractions (Seal Bay, Flinders Chase) are also within easy reach from Emu Bay.
Getting around
I was a Park Ranger for 30 years and some of that time was spent at Flinders Chase National Park. I am more than happy to provide you with suggested touring information when you arrive to make sure you make the most of your stay on Kangaroo Island.
