Guestbook comments from the owner
"We hope you know how fond of the place we are and how much we look forward to being there each year. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful place with us and for all the memories and fun we've had there over the years" - every year since 2001 at least. We look forward to coming home to the Vagabond in 2013 after having to rent another house in 2012.

"Thank you again and God Bless You."

I'm a school librarian and 6th of nine siblings who have inherited this property. My earliest memory of staying here is when my grandmother rented this house out to military personnel, but kept the master suite for herself as a get away. We came to visit and had to sleep in a tent in the back yard.

Heather Swift purchased this house in 1969

My grandmother bought this house in her retirement as a pre-fab in 1969. The photo above is from the day it was placed on it's foundation in 1969. My grandmother made the newspaper for being the first house brought to the area on a tractor trailer. She chose Long Bay for it's quiet residential neighborhood and proximity to art workshops at Spring Maid Beach. She called it 'The Counting House' and rented it yearly to military families. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit and knocked her off it's foundation; thus she became the 'Vagabond'. Our father designed the additions and she was rebuilt on stilts according to federal guidelines. Momma Bette passed away in 2003 at 102 years old. The house is now owned by her daughter and grandchildren and her great grand children are enjoying it too. When we go down we find it most comfortable with two families and the grandparents.

We love the quiet atmosphere in our neighborhood away from the crowds. But, if we want entertainment it's all minutes from our house. We love walking to the pier at the State Park and Murrell's Inlet is one of our favorite places to find local seafood. The Vagabond is a lovely place to get away from it all!

WONDERFUL SPACIOUS HOME, EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Vagabond with our children and grandchildren was a wonderful experience. The home is exactly as pictured and described and has everything you could possibly need. Easily accommodates 12 without feeling the least bit crowded. A great home for kids. Excellent location, just a very short walk to the beach, close to Murrells Inlet, boardwalk, Broadway at the Beach, airport, yet tucked away in very quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle. Heather was very easy to deal with and we look forward to staying again!

GREAT FOR LARGE GROUPS

  • 4 of 5
This property has everything you need for a large group. There are two kitchen sinks, two ovens, two stoves, tons of dishes and cooking utensils. Quick walk to the beach in a beautiful neighborhood and there are a lot of separate hanging out spaces. Our family of 7 really enjoyed our time there, the beds were comfortable and Heather was easy to communicate with. Thanks to her for sharing her home!

VAGABOND!!

  • 4 of 5
Huge house, plenty of room, walking distance to the private beach...nice pond out back full of fish...close to all the tourist stuff. It was nice that we could bring our two dogs with us, but next time we will board them. It's a long drive from Michigan - too long for the dogs this time...brought our golf clubs and played The Witch which was awesome and another course I won't advise River Oaks Plantation course...We could have brought another family with us and still had plenty of space...WIFI worked well for the most part, nice garage underneath to park in which is great when it's 97 degrees out as it was the first two days...very nice place.

FAMILY BEACH VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Had a great time with extended family. The house is just as pictured, clean and well maintained. Loved that the kids could play on the big porch and under the house on the swings and slide on the days the weather wasn't the greatest. Spent many mornings and evenings on the porch rockers. What a great way to start and end the day. Would rent again! Not too far from attractions
