Arwie and Ymile Kennedy
Kennedys Beach Villa has been voted as one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations in Hermanus and the Western Cape, and offers the ultimate in luxury honeymoon accommodation at this exclusive guest house in Hermanus. At Kennedy's romance, tranquillity and privacy prevail and your hosts Ymile & Arwie have created the ultimate hideaway hidden at the estuary of the Onrus River, ideal for a special occasion, luxury honeymoon accommodation, anniversary, or just a much needed romantic weekend away!
I Have been in the Tourism Industry for nearly 25 years - having said so, while having our Guest house in Upington and renting it out, it was voted as the Nr 1 Small Hotel Internationally by AA/Rennies! I am a farmers wife and been into politics for 7 years, but now retired and love spoiling my guests at Kennedys Beach Villa!
