By far one of the best places I’ve stayed. Location, service & quality of the place is amazing. Would definitely recommend Raptor Rise as a vacation spot. The wine Farm Diggers home my family and I attend amazing,from the services to the food.

Enjoyed the place so much that we extended our stay by another night. The rooms are well equipped, the kitchen in the 2 bedroom cottage had everything one could need. The unit was clean, the bed comfortable, the linen of good quality and Jo was a great and accommodating host.

We recently stayed at Raptor Rise Cottage with myself, my husband and our two girls who are 5years and 1years old and 3 of our close friends! We had such a lovely stay, the accommodation was amazing and the beds were really comfortable. The kitchen was fully kitted out so we didn't have to take anything along which was great. The biggest treat was having the horses and cows so close to our accommodation and even having two cows coming to graze in our back garden, the kids loved that. The weather was beautiful and it was such a lovely relaxing holiday chilling by the pool all day and having a lovely braai around the outside boma. I would love to come back again with my family :)

I had the most wonderful three nights. Lovely surroundings and only a short drive into town. Very nice and helpful owners. I left feeling totally recharged and will be back again. Cannot recommended highly enough.

We booked the 2 bedroom unit at Raptor Rise. What a beautiful property - I think one of the best in the area. It has a lovely view. There are small things that they can improve on, but I know that they are busy upgrading the property and will probably improve that then as well. The swimming pool is quite small, so if there are other people, there is not much privacy. The hosts really went out of our way for us and they made us feel as we where staying in our own villa. Nothing we asked was too much for them. We will definitely visit again and I can definitely recommend staying here.

Thanks for the review and compliments on the property. We are aware that the pool is a little small when the place is at capacity but we are in the process of upgrading and hope to address this at some stage in the not too distant future. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
