“Like staying with friends”

person found this review helpful

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”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

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”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

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.
