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 service on offer it made for an effortless holiday. Rika went out of her way to add that extra special touch for example we had snacks, milk, coffee and other bare essentials in our units upon arrival, a choccie in the bedroom not to mention a surprise on Christmas day ! We loved the peaceful atmosphere at night, nothing beats a braai outside in summer. Rika accommodated our mountain bikes as well, and provided a safe and secure lock up room for peace of mind. We definitely are keeping this one on our list. Rietvlei is just outside Plett and for us the location was perfect.
