About Herb or Janette Stichel

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.

Herb or Janette Stichel purchased this house in 2005

Why Herb or Janette Stichel chose Emu Bay

Superb Property and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Janette and Herb have thought of everything! This beautiful, spotless home has everything you will need for an amazing stay! A beautiful location with sea views, quiet and private and walking distance to beautiful Emu Bay! A short drive to Kingscote and access to the rest of beautiful Kangaroo Bay. The only mistake we made was not staying longer at Searenity!

Searenity on KI was everything we were led to believe it would be and more. Herb and Janette were very helpful both before and after we arrived. Our stay was just lovely. Would recommend Searenity to anyone wanting to holiday on Kangaroo Island.

Emu Bay Beach

Emu Bay is known as the home of the "Long White Beach" and is a haven for holiday makers.

Its beautiful 6km 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 are also within easy reach from Emu Bay.
