“Family holiday”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed at swallows nest for 4 days to enjoy the outdoor activities in Tsitsikamma. May wife ans two boys, aged 11 and 9 had a great time experiencing the canopy tree tops zip wire, kayaking in Tsitsikamma gorge mouth and the local Segway bike tour, which was just down from the swallows nest accommodation.

Swallows nest cabins are grouped around a central grassy area and pool. The accommodation was perfect for a family with everything included, please note that there aren't ovens within the kitchen but a hob and microwave. We arrived later in the evening with our pizzas ready to cook only to find that we didn't have an oven, however the slows nest owners, Vicky and husband, we're very obliging and offered WTO cook our pizzas in their own house an delivered them 30 minutes later.....what a great touch and most appreciated.swallows nest is located at the heart of Tsitsikamma village and close to all activities and only 5k from the gorge and around 8k to the worl highest bridge bungy jump, for those brave enough to have a go (or like us watch from the viewing area). A great stay and highly recommend swallows nest as great and reasonably priced accommodation.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Hyacinte Cottage and enjoyed our stop-over. Ideal location for exploring the attractions of Tsitsikamma National Park. Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed our breakfast in the morning. Cottages are all situated in a large private location. Perfect.

My husband and I stayed at Swallow's Nest for 2 nights with a friend in one of the cottages. The hosts, Ken and Corrine, were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and the cottages are clean, spacious and very comfortable. Restaurants are within walking distance and offer good food. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to others.

We stayed for one night in the selfcatering cottage. The cottage is very spacy certainly for two. A very big bedroom, sitting room and kitchen with a bathroom that has a seperate bath, shower and wash basin. Great outside patio and braai! All set within a lovely and well maintained garden which provides every of the 8 units enough privacy. The garden also has a nice swimming pool in the middle. The unit we stayed in was only a few years old and had a modern touch to it. Unfortunately we could only stay one night because the place was fully booked. We would certainly return.

Room Tip: Big well maintained self catering and BB units. Excellent value for money.

Lovely cottages with good size rooms and patio area. We had a warm friendly welcome, the pretty garden had a real english feel to it, very peaceful
We have been to South Africa several times and my husband fancied going up to Storm river, but we were disappointed with the area.
We had 2 lovely meals at very local hotels.

Our 3 night stay at Swallows Nest Cottages was very peaceful. We opted for self-catering and enjoyed sitting outside with our pre-dinner drinks. The gardens are truly lovely and the hosts are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A great venue.The frogs outside kept us awake at times but this is nobody's fault and was quite a fun sound which was no longer gets in the city.The 6 cottages are well spaced out so that you are not in your neighbours face. There is a pool to complete the picture. Loved the peaceful atmosphere!
