“Sublime! Really get away from it all!”
Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Vista Abril is not really easy to get to! It is in a remote location that can only be reached by 4x4. And this is precisely its attraction! You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere (you are!) and yet you are in the lap of luxury.
It consists of a beautiful beach house with remarkable views and a well appointed annex. The staff are wonderful, friendly and can't do enough for you whilst being completely unobtrusive. You feel like the beach is your own. I cannot recommend this destination highly enough!

“Secluded luxury beach holiday”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Situated on the best plot in the area, stunning views and stepping out of the house onto the beach. Great swimming just in front of the house, with rock pools for the kids. Great snorkelling accessible with a fun boat trip. Thomas and Mathilda took care of our every need. Thanks for an amazing stay

Insane place. Something for the whole family. Bush, sea, surf, fish... or just take in the spectacular views over an ice cold G&T

“A real privilege to stay here!”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Vista Abril is a very secluded, luxury residence set in pristine dune vegetation with the most incredible views of the coast you are likely to find anywhere!
Exquisite attention to detail. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. And good fishing! A real privilege to stay here.

“Incredible Luxury Hideaway ' Pure Africa' raw and unspoilt”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This is a luxury 'Hideaway' set high up in the dunes. We had no idea of what to expect, but we were blown away when we opened the front door to a stunning vista of the beach and coastline. The design and construction of the property shows a real attention detail and its positioning high up on the dune is commanding and perfect. This is a 'Very' private residence and the beach feels like its yours. We rarely passed other people in the 6km walk along the shoreline we made each day. The staff are super friendly and helpful, but blend seamlessly into the property until you need them. This really is outdoor living on a luxury scale. We absolutely loved our stay here and would love to return. Vista Abil really is 5 star!! we loved it.

“Beautifully designed, secluded beach house”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This beautiful beach house is set amongst sand dunes over looking the most incredible view of the ocean. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the communal living spaces are open, allowing you to never forget where you are. It is very secluded with it's own access directly on to the beach. Just perfect in every way.
