We stayed two nights and loved this place. Especially the sun deck with the stunning view to the sea. The room is big and very clean Ymile and James are nice people and helped us to find good places for dinner. We'd love to come back.

James, the butler made us feel so welcome and was more than happy to cater to our every need. One of the most beautiful views in Onrus/Hermanus. All round fabulous!!! We will be back again and again!

We had such a lovely stay in this gem, James and the owners were very helpful. It was peaceful and romantic. This is a lovely place for love birds. It is clean and well maintained, the terrace is over the lagoon and you are basically on the beach. Lovely restaurants close by and is not to far from the wine...

After 6 weeks of searching for the ideal place for a retreat with my significant other I decided upon Kennedys and i can honestly say i was not disappointed. The view was amazing from the deck and the sound of the ocean in the morning was fantastic. The only regret that i had was that my stay was to short....

A 2-day visit to Kennedy's in Onrus was a wonderful and peaceful experience. The luxury room with beautiful ocean views and the very nearby Milkwood Restaurant was just great. James is a great butler and the owner Ymile is so friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend the Beach Room to any couple wanting a getaway.

Stunning views across the ocean and very private. Beautiful accommodation in the Beach Villa tastefully decorated and well looked after by Ymile and James. The perfect 3 day end to our month in South Africa celebrating our 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary. Thank you to you all for your kindness and welcome.

Finding a gem like Kennedys is rare. The location is in exceptional, set on the lagoon with a private beach overlooking Onrus main beach.
