About Swallows Nest Guest House

Swallows Nest Guest House is situated within walking distance of the lagoon and the beach. You can be assured of a very memorable visit to Plettenberg Bay, which is called "The Jewel of the Garden Route."

We offer five luxury rooms which are all luxuriously appointed to cater to your every need. Each room includes a complimentary sherry on arrival, a TV with DStv, a bar fridge, tea and coffee-making facilities, a ceiling fan and a private patio. Electric blankets and heaters are supplied for winter and there are laundry facilities available.

The unique and most exciting feature of this area is the abundance of marine mammals in the bay, which is flanked by two marine nature reserves and therefore rich in food for the resident whales and dolphins. During July to September every year, the southern right whales migrate to this part of the Indian Ocean to calve. There are boat trips all year round to see brydes whales and dolphins.

                  The space above the fridge where the kettle was standing etc. is very cramped.

                  Because the rooms are situated downstairs, you can hear everything going on upstairs, which is not normally a problem however when it is movement in the middle of the night it makes it very hard to sleep. Also the road next to the guest house is very busy also a distraction while sleeping. everything else is very nice and tidy.

                  The rooms were well furnished, the water hot, the view was brilliant(upstairs) and the breakfast delicious. And In general warm and welcoming from the cook to the proprietor.
