Kennedy’s Beach Suite... what a find! Best parts... the serene setting, privacy, huge outdoor deck and amazing jacuzzi, proximity to beach, coastal walk and fab restaurant ... no need for car ! Extra large room, comfy bed with view! Very fortunate to have had 3 “summer days “ in June! Constructive tips ...there was no bath mat and the bath towels were a bit tired. There’s a microwave, bar fridge and coffee “station” .. think it could be rearranged to make better functionality ... and coffee mugs please! For coffee lovers a teacup too small! Thanks James for the chats! Thanks Ymile for your warmth ... we will be back for sure! We had the best time at Kennedy’s!

This venue is truly special. Tucked away in a secret garden. Gorgeous old world charm. And so well located with a view down the lagoon to the beach and then a very short walk to the beach. I highly recommend this as a couples get away.

The location and view for this spot was excellent and being pet friendly makes it a unique getaway for the weekend. Service from James was most attentive....almost too much so. We would like to recommend 2 suggestions, namely that a breakfast deal with Milk on the Beach, be included in the package and that an alternative to paying the balance in cash be found. Carrying cash is a huge risk.

Our family had such a fantastic stay this long weekend. We enjoyed the villa among the milkwood trees with big open windows to celebrate nature when you wake up. The hot tub next to the lagoon was the highlight of the weekend. The fireplace inside gives it a cosy atmosphere. I would highly reccommend this stay to anyone!

We stayed in the beautiful beach suite for our anniversary. Well they say suite, but it is actually a very large suite with an enormous outside area with private gazebo, garden area with loungers and private jacuzzi overlooking the lagoon and sea. We are all about views, and this you can’t beat. James was amazing and gave us a run down and assistance with anything. Really worth it!
