We found Swallows Nest to be wonderfully relaxing, spacious and very well appointed. We particularly liked the large garden area. A bonus was that it was within walking distance of the Canopy Zip-Line which is a must do if you want to get up into the forest amongst the tall timber. Cute little monkeys visited us at the cottages.

Wonderful accommodation in a two-room cottage providing the warm comforts of home. A great place to chill out round the pool in a gorgeous garden. The kind hospitality of our hosts was well appreciated.

Excellent service, personal contact with a very friendly and helpful owner how cares for his guests. I respect the way Swallow's Nest is managed. This was the first but one of the best holidays in utmost comfort although a lot of available activities.

Stayed for 1 night only. Located beautifully in the Tsitsikamma National Park, minutes from the Canopy Tours, and 10 minutes drive to the Storms River Mouth. Very thoughtful and friendly hosts, charming cottages, very clean, good wi-fi, and nice breakfast too. Highly recommend

Very complete and spacious cottage. Friendly and hospitable people. We should have stayed longer, but had planned our travelscheme for long. The breakfast could be more buffet style and of more variety.
