“ROMANTIC ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We had an absolutely awesome time at Wolfkop this weekend. The peace and tranquility was simply amazing and the privacy was perfect for this romantic anniversary weekend. Not to mention the jacuzzi which was a sure winner. We enjoyed it so much we would have stayed longer if we could. This is an ideal venue for some R&R and just to get a way from the busy city life. We stayed in Botterboom which was simply awesome. The managers Karin and Bernice was also very friendly and helpful. They were always available and any issues were sorted chop chop. Karin and Bernice, thanks for a wonderful weekend.

We have stayed at Wolfkop Nature Reserve several times, but this time was definitely above our expectations! We have returned to our second Home - Totally Relaxed!

Different from other Accommodation Types in Citrusdal, the Cottages at Wolfkop Nature Reserve is totally private and secluded! Each Cottage has a very special view over the Valley – We have ended each day in the Jacuzzi with Sundowners, Perfect!!

As we have stayed for 5 days, there were more than enough activities to keep us busy during the day. The Canoes at the Dam was amazing to cool down after the 3hour hiking trial up the mountain. The men were able to catch some bass fish in the fishing dam, while our women have relaxed in the shallow water!

The kids could have enjoyed themselves playing at the Jungle Gym, while we relaxed in the hammocks (still having an eye over them!)

Dinner was especially tasty, as we could have used some of the herbs in the private herb garden!

Thanks to everybody who had a share at this unforgettable holiday! We will definitely return!

We really enjoyed our weekend. Wish we could have stayed just one more night ;) We were lucky to get the new cottage and it is really really nice! Thank you to Karin for being very welcoming! We had some trouble with our jacuzzi, we phoned Karin and told her about it. Not even 10 minutes later someone arrived and all was sorted! We look forward to our next weekend at Wolfkop!!!

Room Tip: Both rooms are equally nice!

We stayed at Wolfkop recently and we enjoyed ourselves so much.

The cottage we stayed in really was fully equiped with everything, the bedlinen crisp and fresh and then there are the personal touches that make you feel so welcome. The view was amazing and to sit on the stoep or even in the bubbly jacuzzi with a glass of wine and look out over the valley was a real treat.

We made use of a canoe down by their dam and did the hiking trail - we didn't even have to go anywhere else do do these things.

We will definately be back to this little peace of heaven. Keep it up!!

We stayed at Harpuishuis at Wolfkop during the last weekend of July 2012. What was almost a relaxing weekend turned out very unfortunate: we were robbed late on the Saturday night - while four of us were in bed and two of us in the jacuzzi - frightening how vulnerable we all were. Though only petty crime (two cellphones and a wallet was taken), the response from management was simply shocking. After the police was called out, the detective and constable shared with us how ours was not the first incident on the farm, and even not the first at Harpuishuis. Constable Coetzee from Citrusdal police station stated that ours was the 17th incident on the farm. Bernice, our contact person, was present and she herself also mentioned how it wasn't the first incident on the property. She, right there and then, committed to refunding us for the weekend. However, after contacting the owner, Werner, with news of our unfortunate experience, he managed to find enough reason not to believe and implicating that we were lying, saying there had never been robberies at Wolkop and that the police report states that no fingerprints of footprints were found. I subsequently phoned the detective Coetzee (Citrusdal Police station) and constable Valentyn (Vredendal police station) on Monday morning and to confirm what they told us the Saturday night, which they did. Still this wasn't enough for Werner. This is the first time in my history that I have heard of the manager of a hospitality establishment washing his hands clean from his clients' loss by calling them liars. I shared with Werner that I will convey all as it happened, including his reaction, by posting them as they were on all necessary travel websites. His reaction was that he would respond on my posts by stating that I was lying. Even Bernice now denies to have said that we would be refunded.

Wolfkop is a lovely farm with spectacular scenery. If you do go, keep those doors and windows locked tight and best leave your valuables at home. You will be the only one living with the unsavoury aftertaste and having the bear out the loss.

dreamdreamy, Owner at Wolfkop Nature Reserve, responded to this review, August 20, 2012
We can unfortunately not refund a guest when they claim they had theft taking the following points in concideration:

we have never had a break in
We have a 90% ocuppancy rate - why first time now if cottages are far up in the mountains?
police got no force entry
police got no finger prints
police got no foot prints
Police stated this case looks suspicious as they could find nothing and on there recommendation they told us we should not take this claim serious.

This guest then threatens us by saying we should fully refund them and if not he will post on every traveller site. i can unfortunatly not let guests like these threaten me in this way with these suspicious points as mentioned above.

Kind Regards,

Werner Rontgen

While us hedonist types at Budget Getaways will be hard pressed to leave the hammock there's a lot to do. ... more   less
