We thought we had died and gone to heaven when we arrived at Kennedy's. I had found the place through a web search and when I checked there were no reviews on trip advisor but we decided to go for it anyway. I called and booked direct with the owners who were friendly and helpful on the phone.

The place is amazing, situated in beautiful gardens with a huge deck overlooking the river estuary and the sea where you can relax under the sun umbrellas or chill out in the heated Jacuzzi. There are steps down through the milkwood trees to a grassed area by the river where you can go in swimming or take out the canoes (free). It is absolutely idyllic and as it is only for 2 people - a truly romantic experience. (You can even bathe under the trees by candle light in a warm roll top bath if the mood takes you - you are totally secluded.)

There is a kitchen if you want to eat in, a great BBQ area or if you are feeling lazy - walk the 60 seconds to the Milkwood restaurant for breakfasts and a choice of all day menus.

Our hosts, Ymile and her husband, were superb. They gave us great advice on the local area and restaurants as well as places to visit. An absolute gem of a find and if we ever go back to Hermanus we would definitely stay there again.
