I expected a decent place for the price but I got a whole lot more than I expected! Rika has thought of everything and has really made Rietvlei Country Estate private and comfortable. Everything was perfect...the rooms were fully equipped and although it is self-catering there was filter coffee, tea as well as rolls with cheese, ham and tomato for...

The Estate was very well maintained and the accommodation very well serviced. It had a peacefulness to it that we really enjoyed. The host, Rika is absolutely terrific and made us feel...

We drove to Cape Town last month & I had the pleasure of staying at Rietvlei. It was absolutely beautiful, calming & the perfect getaway from the busy city life. We stayed in the Egyptian Geese unit & it was stylish & comfortable. The owners Rika & her husband were very welcoming, friendly & helpful.I would definitely recommend this place.

We spent 12 days at Rietvlei during the Christmas holiday 2013 and it was absolutely awesome! We stayed in the Guinea Fowl and Wagtail units. The units were very clean and spacious and are both great, guinea fowl definitely bigger and more luxurious if you have first choice ! With cleaning services coming in every day and an additional laundry...

This is a must! For couples, families and friends. We had a lovely time at Rietvlei. It is beautiful, luxurious, upmarket self-catering, meaning you can braai! You get a lovely farm feeling overlooking a dam and huge open field. It is 5 min away from Plett so you have best of both worlds. We will definitely go back and visit...

Excellent and upmarket self-catering accommodation situated approximatley 5 minutes outside the town of Plettenberg Bay. The rooms are beautifully decorated and we appreciated the quality and style.
