Perfect place to stay while visiting Tsitsikamma or Storms River. Stayed for two nights, the accommodation was equipped with all the amenities. The hosts were very helpful and warm. Highly recommended.

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 first halt for 2 nights along the Garden Route for my wife & me was at the Hyacinth Cottage ( accommodates 5 ; our daughter & son-in-law taking us around ) and was a most convenient base for going around Tsitsikamma area to see the various picturesque spots. 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

Nothing much you can do wrong in the lovely village of Stormsrivier but Swallow's nest is really an outstanding B&B. We were 3 (couple and a friend) to stay in a 2 bedroom cottage with a shared bathroom. Cottage is nicely decorated and fully equipped so self-catering also possible. Corrie (Dutch origin) & Ken are discrete and friendly hosts and... More

Friendly reception by the owners. Pleasant room/cottage with view of garden and mountain. Attractions close at hand such as Stormsriviermond and Tsitsikamma Forest. Lovely well kept garden setting. Delicious breakfast provided.

We were seven adults and stayed in Bluebell Cottage for one night. The owners were very welcoming and gave us good advice on the area and where to eat in the evening. (Within walking distance and safe!) Breakfast was great and the garden is fantastic. The rooms are a little dated, like previous reviewers have also written, but that added... More

Staying at Swallows Nest is like being transported back in time; the rooms are all a bit dated and would welcome modernization. That said, the bed was very comfortable and we slept incredibly well. The garden is fabulous and i found myself just smiling to myself whilst breathing in the scent from the flowers and marveling at the view of... More
