About Heather Swift
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
Why Heather Swift chose Long Bay Estates
My grandmother bought this house in her retirement as a pre-fab in 1969. She 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.
What makes this house unique
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!
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."
