We have barbecue facilities at all three our units and offer free Wi-Fi and DSTV at two of our units.
If thoughts of a typical country town bring a smile to your face, you are going to love Riversdale. We are just off the N2 highway on the world famous Garden Route, a mere half an hour from the beautiful blue flagged beaches of Still Bay. The area lies in embrace between the Langeberg Mountains, the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, and both the Breede and Gouritz Rivers.
Riversdale is an old fashioned agricultural town with yester-year values, albeit that it offers retail facilities to satisfy most travellers’ needs. It is a safe town, and the only crime we know here is of a petty nature – so long walks through our interesting town can be undertaken without fear for your safety. Our children still ride bicycles all over the place and kick balls around in the streets – isn’t that amazing?
In Room Facilities:
Nostalgia Self Catering Guest House comprises three units(rooms).
* Nostalgia Lane:
Your accommodation offers everything you would expect – your very own veranda with a lovely view of the Sleeping Beauty Mountain, a fully-equipped kitchen with a gas hob as well as a microwave should you wish to prepare your own meals. Naturally a fridge to keep things cool plus all the crockery and cutlery your heart may desire. The sleeper couch and three quarter day bed in the lounge is the perfect place to relax and watch Television, and when the kids get sleepy, can accommodate two or three of them comfortably.
There is a divine double bed in the bedroom, with an electric blanket for those cold winter nights. The room has an additional single bed tucked into the corner for a third child.
The bathroom has a large, modern shower, a wash basin and loo, and a small bath perfect for little bodies.
This unit is also suitable to accommodate four single persons.

The bedroom has a comfortable double bed and electric blanket to keep you warm, with an on suite shower, loo and hand basin.
You will have your own little garden for a private braai on warm summer nights, and don’t be surprised if our dogs Tino, Leyla, Roxy and Eva come to pay you a visit for a friendly hello through the fence.
* Nostalgia Farm Cottage:
Only 1 kilometer out of town, after a comfortable drive down the farm road (good enough for all kinds of vehicles) you will arrive at the cottage, perfect for your restful stay. From the very first moment you will know that you have arrived at a most special and peaceful place on our beautiful earth, and will start feeling relaxed almost immediately.
The cottage itself speaks of those sentimental days of the past, when life took on its own pace and the clock did not rule our lives.
Enjoy sundowners on your patio as you overlook Olive and Pecan Nut plantations in the distance, with uninterrupted views of the Langeberg Mountains.
After preparing your delicious meal in the farm-style kitchen, equipped with all the necessary appliances, relax in the comfortable chairs of your lounge.
Have sweet dreams in the comfortable double bed in the main bedroom, and know that those in the two single beds in the second bedroom are doing the same.
Wash the day’s dust away in the shower in the surprisingly spacious bathroom, also equipped with a basin and loo.
We truly are the floral paradise of the Garden Route, and our indigenous flora (called fynbos around here) delight visitors on hikes to the Sleeping Beauty Mountain, Crystal Falls or on the short and scenic drive to the top of Garcia Pass.
After a 12 kilometers drive towards the Langeberg Mountains, you will arrive at the Korentepoort Dam, nestled in between floral covered hills, where you can relax and "braai" at the picnic spots overlooking the dam, or if you are fortunate to have a boat, you can cruise, ski or try some fishing on the dam.
Still Bay, our local seaside resort, is a half hours' drive away, where you can enjoy everything it has to offer.
