we stayed for 1 night and wish we had stayed longer. The cottages were spacious and spotlessly clean. Ken was a lovely host and very friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day. Hope to stay again on our next trip.Was ideally suited for all acitivities in storms river area.

Travelling with 2 adults and 3 children this place was perfect for what we needed. A lot of space in the cottage, small swimming-pool, fully equipped kitchen, braai facility and within the center of the beautiful Tsitsikama region. The place is very charming with the garden and the brick stones construction, friendly and very helpful hosts. Will definitively stay there... More

A series of neat cottages, grouped in sets of two, are set on the edge of a large garden, neatly maintained, with swimming pool. A little old fashioned in design, but space and comfort aplenty. Our cottage was nicely equipped with everything one would need for a self-catering stay. A good solid bed, a patio with a barbecue, plenty hot... More

After a long walk in the forest or a trip to storms river mouth, it was a pleasure to come back to our spacious & well equipped cottage, and put our feet up & enjoy looking at the tidy gardens or watching a movie on the flat screen TV. In the morning we looked forward to a full English breakfast... More

The Cottage was equipped with all amenities. We opted for self... More

We love the Tsitsikamma area and have visited on a number of occasions. This was our first time staying at Swallows Nest and our family would love to stay here again when we next visit this beautiful part of the world. The hosts, Ken and Corrie, were very warm, friendly and helpful. The accommodation was perfect for us. The cottage... More

This was only a functional night stop heading back to Cape Town, as we've already been in the Tsitsikamma area a week before, but we loved this place and will sure spend more time there next time. Storms River Village is very picturesque and these cottages are just at the entrance, surrounded by lush vegetation, many birds and even monkeys.... More
