Certificate of Excellence
English Breakfast at the Milkwood Restaurant - 3 min walk from Kennedys. This unique Guesthouse the scenic beauty of Hermanus and the Cape Whale Coast. "When it comes to the combination of utmost privacy, luxury, romance and organic lifestyle - there are very few places on earth as special as KENNEDY'S!" - Mariette du Toit-Helmbold (ex-CEO of Tourism - Cape Town). Villa, tucked away in a Milkwood forest,the ideal hideout promising complete privacy. A unique Honeymooners paradise! Villa - Have a lovely view of the beach from outside balcony - own " little private beach" after passing your own Milkwood Forest! PLEASE NOTE: Due to the natural surroundings and uneven surfaces at Kennedys, "Villa" NOT recommended for elderly people with walking difficulties. The Beach Suite with its sweeping ocean views sunken Jacuzzi on the spacious deck overlooking Beach and fantastic whale watching in season. Also private, but not as exclusively private as villa!
