Hi, Before I write about the house where we stayed, I must tell you about Janette & Herb; they are not mere run-of-the-mill renters waiting to grab a client; they are wonderful hosts, who live just next door, and would go out of their way to help their customers to make their stay a very comfortable one. Herb even called me several times before I left for Kangaroo Island (KI) and gave me good advice on the grocery prices in KI, ferry availability, roads in KI, etc etc. Now the house: It is an impeccably clean adobe that looks like as if it has never been lived in. We had everything we needed for a short stay, comfortable beds with clean linen, absolutely clean bathrooms with freshly washed towels etc. And, what's more, an outdoor gas barbecue. Hope you would have a great holiday in the house of Janette & Herb as we did!

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.

Fantastic house in beautiful Emu Bay, only a short walk from the beach. The view from the deck is great and watching the sunrise over the bay from just behind the house with just the sheep next to me was pretty special. The house was spotless, nicely furnished and decorated. It has everything one needs to have a great holiday, and I mean everything: this is one of the best equipped accommodations I have stayed in!!! Herb and Janette warmly welcomed us to the beautiful house just behind theirs, and made sure we had everything we needed. The only regret: we only stayed one night...

Janette & Herb User Profile

We lived in Bridgewater in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia for 20 years before returning to live at Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island in 2005.

We had previously lived on Kangaroo Island when Herb was the District Ranger in Charge of the west end of Kangaroo Island. During this time we lived at both Kelly Hill Caves and Flinders Chase National Park and therefore know the Island and all of its attractions well.

Apart from the 5 years based on Kangaroo Island he was also the Operations Manager at Cleland Wildlife Park in the Adelaide Hills and also spent a year working for the Oregon State Parks Service in the USA as part of the first International Ranger Exchange Program. In 2003 Herb left the National Parks and Wildlife Service after a 30 year career to pursue our dream of an "Island Sea Change".

Janette has worked as an Information Officer at Belair National Park and then spent 9 years as an Office Administrator at an Aged Care Complex in the Adelaide Hills before moving to Emu Bay.

As our son and daughter are now adults with their own careers, we have opted to pursue our love for the more relaxed lifestyle on Kangaroo Island.

We own and operate our Kangaroo Island Holiday Accommodation business which includes Searenity Holiday Home and a fully self-contained luxury holiday apartment on the lower level of our own home. We pride ourselves on providing a very high standard of presentation and customer service and are there to greet you on arrival to hand you the keys and answer any questions.
