“Comfortable Accomodation and Hospitable Hosts”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We can recommend staying in this little cottage. Everything was comfortable and cosy with attention paid to fine detail. We were private, had safe parking and the cottage had everything we needed. We were even surprised with a welcoming gift pack containing delicious goodies! The hosts are friendly and provide breakfast on request. We will be back!

“Pet-friendly farm cottage with spectacular view of the mountains”
Reviewed December 24, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Our farm cottage was just a couple of minutes from downtown Riversdale and, as indicated in the title, it was located in the countryside with views of the Langeberg Mountain Range, including the iconic Sleeping Beauty. Our hosts, Esmé and Charles were friendly and accommodating, driving out to the cottage and helping us – and our two dogs – settle in. At their recommendation, we enjoyed a great breakfast the next morning at the Old Jail coffee shop. We will definitely be recommending Nostalgia to all our friends!

“The True Hidden Gem of the Garden Route”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We truly had a magical stay at Nostalgia. It is the perfect stay over between Cape Town and the Garden Route and Highly Recommended!
Special thanks to our host Esme and Charles for the warm, friendly welcome and going out of your way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay.
Our accommodation was well equipped with comfortable furnishings to make our stay very pleasant. Beautiful and Spacious rooms with wooden floors, high ceilings and amazing attention to the smallest detail... one can only feel at home.
Nostalgia is within walking distance to town and is very safe and convenient.
This will definitely be a permanent stay over for us!!

What a cosy and charming unit with everything you need for the perfect stay! What really sets Nostalgia self catering guest house apart are the hosts, Charles and Esme van Wyk who make you feel right at home, so much so that you wish you could just stay forever. Very highly recommended for safety, comfort, convenience and real South African hospitality.
