Hosts of the Holiday Accommodation
Meet the hosts of Searenity
Herb & Janette Stichel
Herb and Janette Stichel have a true passion for Kangaroo Island and will be your hosts when staying at Searenity. They absolutely love Emu Bay and everything this island has to offer so they are happy to help you with your KI trip!
They had previously lived on Kangaroo Island when Herb was the District Ranger in Charge of the west end of Kangaroo Island. During this time they lived at both Kelly Hill Caves and Flinders Chase National Park and therefore know the Island and all of its attractions very 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 their dream of an “Island Sea Change”.
“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 you have may.
We invite you to stay at Searenity to share this unique Island with its wonderful landscape and abundant wildlife.”
