“A tranquil romantic paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

Kennedy's Beach Villa is a romantic, relaxing paradise - whether you're on honeymoon or a romantic getaway, this is the place to go.
The villa is breathtaking and the service is excellent. But the key words here are privacy and romance - from the milkbath beneath the milkwood trees to the hammock, private barbeque area and jacuzzi.
Our stay at Kennedy's was fantastic and we'll definitely return. My only regret is that our visit was too short.

We really enjoyed staying at Kennedy Beach villa. It is in a beautiful location right on a lagoon and bird sanctuary and the grounds are kept immaculate. The hot tub was amazing and we went in late at night watching the stars. Nothing was too much trouble for Mike our butler and Ymile gave us lots of advice on where to go and what to see.

Kennedy's is a perfect place for a couple who wants to reconnect and add sparkle back into their lives or just for any couple that wants to get away from the stresses of daily life and spend a weekend/week together.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our hosts were unbelievable friendly and so accommodating which just made our stay even better!
The whole villa is set in such a romantic & dreamy setting. The garden area is just unbelievable. We were in awe of our beautiful surroundings.
I think there is nothing we didn't like of The Kennedy's. The milk bath was something really different but was it was amazing! Very romantic!
I would recommend anyone and everyone to experience this place. Its a little paradise on its own!
Thanx Kennedy's! Our stay was awesome! Would definitely stay at your place again!

Warmest Regards
M&S

We were very privileged to begin our married life at Kennedy's. We were welcomed with warmth and felt that our needs were met at every turn. Apart from the beautiful surroundings, what struck us the most was the fine attention to detail and the thought that was put into making our stay a relaxing and memorable one. We are so chuffed to have our first pics as husband and wife with this haven as our backdrop. Thank you Ymile and Arwie and Isaac. Warm regards, Claire & Jon

We felt like royalty! It was a great stay, very private, very secluded.... just what you need on your honeymoon! The location is perfect and the view took our breath away.

The Kennedy's Beach Villa was a fantastic honeymoon getaway for me and my wife. Ideal for lovers of Brideshead Revisited or Out of Africa. Filled with marble and mahogany, it managed to be both comfortable and elegant, deserving of the title "villa". We felt instantly at home (the home of our dreams anyway) and deeply relaxed. Although our every need was met, we were completely alone and secluded. Swimming, sunbathing, and beach walks were literally at our doorstep, and Hermanus was a short drive away when we felt like being more social. In a word, it was perfect.

If you are looking for a decadently relaxing and private romantic getaway, Kennedy's is the place to go - private everything from the luxurious milkwood bath, to private tanning on the lagoon - side (with private access to the beach by little rowing boats if it takes your fancy), own braai facilities, a butler (for all your personal needs - heaven) and your very own magnificent view of the beach where you can go for long walks, catch a breakfast or just relax on the warm sand.

Ymile and Arwie Kennedy are the perfect hosts who welcome all who visit with warm open arms, they make your visit as comfortable and as tailor-made as possible.

It’s a must, go on and treat yourself!
