“Fantastic place to stay & unwind!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We've just had three really relaxing nights at La Vista. Damien is a wonderful host, puts a SENSATIONAL breakfast together (best omelettes ever) and provides great company if you'd like a chat or leaves you alone if you'd prefer that. We stayed in "view" and it was just right for the two of us - living area, bedroom with an awesome view of the coast and a huge bathroom with a quality kitchen in the living area. Not overlooked by other guests and could very much come and go as we pleased but with Damien always available to advise on great ways to spend the day.
We'll go back for more than three nights next time - it really is that good.

Room Tip: All four units are fully self contained and private - none of them overlook each other and they all...

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at this lovely establishment, where we were made to feel very much at home by Damian. Our villa was delightful, very spacious and comfortable with the added bonus of a covered verandah where we sat in the evenings soaking up the view! La Vista is beautifully situated just outside of Byron, only a short drive. Our host was well versed in all the attractions, restaurants, etc, which made life very easy for us. We can highly recommend a stay at this delightful B&B.

This was quite simply the most wonderful B&B we have stayed in. Damien was a great host always welcoming and very good with advice on where to go and where to eat. All recommendations were spot on.
We found the location perfect, only a few minutes drive to town yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful place – it’s the best of both worlds.
Our Villa was beautifully furnished with breathtaking views of the rolling hills to Byron. Breakfasts each morning, just delicious. Fresh fruit juice, organic yogurt and fresh fruit, fresh coffee and the local muesli, totally scrumptious. we were very sad to only be staying 2 days.
We will definitely be back to stay! Thanks for looking after us Damien

Room Tip: Can highly recommend the Escape Villa, also you will need a car. Its a little to far to walk to town...

was really disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. The room was spacious, bedroom was nicely laid out, but the furniture in the lounge area was a bit tired looking and even a bit grubby looking. Didn't enjoy seeing or sharing with bugs and spiders, and seeing so many spider webs around the room.

Views are absolutely fantastic and the owner is friendly and helpful.

Car parking is a little inadequate for the size of the property and the number of rooms.

Found the beds to be really hard.

The rates are advertised, then you find out that it doesn't include GST and then you have to pay a surcharge for using a credit card. However, still continued with the booking and stayed. Don't think would stay again.

Thank you Lorelle, very much for your trip advisor review.

We always appreciate feedback and reviews as so many travellers do use Trip Advisor when researching holiday destinations.

In regards to your recent review thank you for taking the time to critique our family operated resort.

In regards to your review....The lounge in the View Villa, was brand new in March 2013 and you visited with us in June 2013. The lounges are all steam cleaned professionally every six months and spider webs removed each visit by our cleaners.

We have now changed the policy on GST and reverted back to include the GST. In regards to merchant fees, I do understand your frustration, however this seems to be a way of life now with everything that is paid by credit card.

It is an interesting statistic that of the 1900 couples we have taken wonderful care of at La Vista and had the pleasure of receiving wonderful comments in our five guest books, very few have posted comments on Trip Advisor. Of the 100 that provided a review unfortunately there have been a few very hurtful reviews in six years however we do appreciate all the reviews and thank you once again Lorelle.

We do thank you for your review and trust that you may choose to return to La Vista again sometime soon, as you would be welcomed with open arms.

Best Regards
Damien

This is the perfect place to relax in Byron Bay. Everything is absolutely beautiful and it is located a few minutes by car to the town centre. The owner, Damien, is extremely attentive and just an overall amazing host. I can't wait to return and highly recommend this villa to anyone who is planning on visiting Byron Bay.

Very nice place!!
La Vista is with no doubt the place to stay in Byron Bay. The villas offer a very private and relaxed stay. Well equipped, modern and comfortable.
You will experience a unique stay with an amazing landscape. The distance from town is just perfect and very accessible.
Damien (owner of La Vista) is always there to help in a way that preserves the privacy of the guests.
I can say that I have stayed in many luxury villas and I will always remember La Vista.
Thank you for everything and I hope to return soon.

We visited La Vista in Byron Bay to spend a few relaxing days after we got married on the Sunshine Coast.

The 10 days we had already spent in Australia had been amazing but the 4 days we spent in Byron were just beautiful. The location of the villas is amazing and the view is breathtaking. The villa was well equipped and sitting outside on the deck watching the sun go down will forever be an image I will cherish.

Damien the owner is all that the other reviews say. A friendly and knowledgeable host he even gave us a lift in to town on our first day as we wanted to go for some food and a drink. He didn't bat an eye and offered to take us in to town. What a top bloke!

If you want to stay in Byron Bay but without the busy vibe then La Vista is the place you'll get it.

Five stars and we will definitely stay there again!
