Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Idyllically situated just south of Brandon, even the torrential rain one morning didn’t dampen the view or our enthusiasm. The property is as described, the photos accurate and the cleanliness and upkeep of the property impeccable. We particularly appreciated the goodies that were left for our breakfast and the little things like a well stocked bookshelf. Thank you very much....

The highest compliment you can give a vacation-rental owner is returning, and that's exactly what we're doing. We've already reserved The Swallow's Nest for five days next July. It was everything we could have hoped for, especially the setting and the view from the patio, which is breathtaking.

Management response:

Thank you and we look forward to your visit next year and for years to come. We will be working on the full sun perennial gardens between the houses by next summer.

Management response:

It was a pleasure to have you. We enjoy watching our guests enjoy the property.
