Just had a family (4 adults + 2 kids) holiday on Kangaroo Island, from WA. Searenity was perfect, even in winter! Plenty of space for us all, more than adequate facilities and a beautiful location. Would definitely come again.

The Searenity is clearly a top class home away from home. The hosts, Herb and Jannette, have paid attention to all the details of making a comfortable home for the guests. We are three guests and stayed in the home at the back of the home of the hosts. The location is convenient for travelling to all areas of tourist...

Searenity Apartment was absolutely lovely. It is in a very peaceful location and only a short drive to Kingscote - the perfect location from which to explore the island! Herb and Janette were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They were a wealth of local knowledge and offered us extra space to dry our scuba diving gear undercover (which was much...

We spent a very enjoyable nine days at Searenity - it has everything you need for a great holiday.

Very welcoming hosts. Lovely apartment, much bigger than we had expected. More of a complete kitchen than just a kitchenette and really well equipped. Wifi fast and reliable. Great views, 2 minutes walk to Emu Bay. Didn't see anywhere else we would have rather stayed. Would definitely recommend to a couple.
