Raintree is a true paradise hidden away in the Umwinsidale Valley. The property has been developed into a unique up market venue providing an ideal setting for any event, from weddings to corporate and private functions. This breathtaking venue maximizes on the best that any venue has to offer with pine forests, landscaped gardens and sweeping lawns that roll down to meet the Umwinsi River which is a clear water stream that cascades over a granite rock waterfall to settle in an idyllic pool below.

We had a baby shower picnic at Raintree and it was so peaceful and serene. The spot we chose was kind of hidden and that added to the allure of the event. We sat on blankets and used some of the benches available. The place was clean. I will definitely host another function at Raintree.
