On the plus side our chalet was large and spacious with spectacular views and not a soul to be seen or heard for days. It was neat and the linen was clean and plush. The only time we saw a member of staff was when she came to collect the balance of payment. The downside was that we struggled to switch on the DSTV, couldnt get the aircons to blow warm air, had to look for the hammock in the garage, and the electricity ran out halfway through our 3 night stay which switched off the jacuzzi!! The crockery and cutlery also had to be re-washed before we could use it. I would like to recommend that the management take a little more interest in what is potentially a wonderful place to get away for a few days.

Hi Helen,

Thanks so much for this review. We have definitely focused on these points and love it that you mention that you did not see workers or people while you visited as that is exactly what we try for your guests. The Electricity problem i have spoken to Bernice about and she knows she should not allow it to run out. Crockery is totally unacceptable and i have made a note in our control system.

Please do visit us again so you can see the improvements at Wolfkop

Kind Regards,

Werner Rontgen

We stayed for 3 days and it was perfect. The cottages are far apart, my son (9) could play, scream and shout without disturbing anyone. We lounged around on the beautiful deck by the fire and Spa bath. the view was fantastic. Everything that you see on the web site e.g. pictures, is what you get when you arrive. Everything was clean, fresh orange juice in the fridge. we had freshly ground coffee first thing in the morning, clean linen, clean towels, everthing. The cottage was well maintained, very cosy and welcoming. Even though it was cold we felt at home, sitting by the fire place inside.We would definately go back there again. Shops are close by if you run out of meat, refreshments anything. Thank you so much for the accommodation, it will definately not be forgotten. Regards Tania, Craig, Myles and Matthew Oliver

Our stay at Wolfkop was really specially seeing that the cottage was totally private and we loved the veranda with the braai area, Hammock and jacuzzi with our views over the whole valley. Bernice thanks so much for your warm welcome and the freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee grinder with coffee beans. We loved the idea recommend by Werner to drive into town for a breakfast and also made us for the herb garden when i cooked our meals at night time.

The hike is really special and should be done, but is 3 hours long.

Thanks Wolfkop for a absolute awesome time

We spent three days in the Waboom cottage at Wolfkop. This is clearly not the one they show in the photographs on their website as it is not as nicely furnished or as new as the website looks. However, it is definatley the most secluded of all the houses in the reserve. One other house was barely visible from the bathroom window and otherwise there is no sign of humanity nearby. We didn't see or hear another human for the entire three days - fantastic! Our only company were birds, insects and the occassional troup of baboons who fled if we clapped our hands (which apparently sound like gunshots?) All this just 10 minutes drive from Citrusdal village and less than 2 hours from central Cape Town!
The house is fine. Rustic, spacious and with every concievable appliance (except dishwasher), even an electric can opener! There is airconditioning in the main bedroom and lounge and ceiling fans in the other bedroom to keep things nice and cool in the Cederberg heat. There is also an indoor fire and heaters in every room so it looks like it would be nice and cosy in Winter too. The best bit was the hot outside shower where you can wash under the dazzling stars at night, we never used the indoor bath at all! There is a jaccuzi too which, while not the best one out there, has a great view, and two hammocks on the verandah so we could both swing in the shade and read at the same time.
Service was non-existant. We were told to get the keys from a letterbox and never heard from or saw a staff member. We were told firewood would be at the house, which it wasn't. Fortunately we had brought some of our own from the town. We had several phone numbers to call so I'm sure if we'd had a problem we could have found someone to sort it out. There is cellphone reception at the house but no landline phone. There are also two TV's with satellite if you must.
We were'nt very energetic but just a 5 minute gentle walk up the mountain behind the house brings you to a cave with bushmen paintings. Even the laziest tourist could make it that far!
Overall a lovely location and wonderfully silent stay. It would be better value for 4 people but then, not as romantic.

Stayed in the Boegoe cottage for 2 nights. The purpose of this long weekend was to relax and the stay could not have been more successful. The cottage is well equipped with all the necessities... microwave, cutlery, TV, airconditioning, etc. The jacuzzi on the "stoep", the built-in braai and the hammocks make the perfect setting for relaxation with a beautiful view of the Citrusdal valley. The setting on the lower slopes of the mountain make this a very silent spot, making it easy to relax. We spent the weekend without TV or music, listening to the silence and lounging about, reading some good books. This is an excellent place to go for rest and relaxation.
