“rancho relaxo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

We have visited Byron Bay on and off for nearly ten years now, always staying on the beachfront. This time we opted to stay at a place called La Vista, a few minutes from Byron Bay, at Ewingsdale for the first three nights of our trip. The place is amazing, very quiet and peaceful with unbelievable views and still only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Byron. We then moved into town for the weekend. On the Friday we had another great evening meal and then retired to our room on the beach. The noise didn't stop till the early hours and was much the same on Saturday night so we opted to move back to the ambience of Ewingsdale. The host at La Vista, Damien, was kind enough to let us have our room back for our final two nights. The breakfasts, the pool, everything about this place is so warm and friendly. When we come back in August we will be booking La Vista again. Thanks Damien for a lovely holiday...

My partner Kerry and I recently went on our first holiday in over a year after setting up our new business. We have never left a place so relaxed and refreshed as we did last month. Country Living by the ocean, nothing beats it. And yes the pool is the the best out there. THANK YOU and see you soon.

We recently returned to la Vista after discovering it on a visit last year. Nothing has changed since our first trip, everything was wonderful. Our room had everything you need for a relaxing holiday, the bathroom has a great open air feel with its bi fold windows and plenty of privacy. A huge comfy bed and relaxing sofa to lounge on while watching a movie. We love the pool and the beautiful atmosphere of the out door area. Our host Damien was a complete delight with all his tips on places to go and things to do, he is also a fabulous cook. and friendly host. We cant wait to go back. xx

Anyone looking for a romantic getaway in Byron has to check this place out. Super private villas with amazing views and a very relaxed vibe. Forget the luxury apartments in town and truly escape at La Vista. You might rock up here being on city time, expecting everything yesterday, but you will definitely leave on Byron time and being much better for it! Damien looks after all his guests and the website actually does this place justice and is what it looks like.

My wife and I have just returned from a trip from Sydney up the East coast of New South Wales and stayed at Angourie and Byron Bay, both are really beautiful places. We wanted to share with your readership a small exclusive resort a few minutes form Byron Bay called La Vista. This place is magic, the most amazing Villas and spectacular sunrises. The serenity and quiet nature of the resort is soul warming and the bird life is awesome. We only stayed four nights in the Grand Villa but could have stayed weeks. So relaxing and Damien was so helpful with three out of three brilliant evening restaurant suggestions. He cooked for us on the last night the most amazing baked spatchcock (wrapped in prosciutto) we have ever eaten. Damien we will be returning, miss the fresh fruit salad every day and your omelette's....

La Vista Byron Bay is the perfect honeymoon destination. Imagine the most expensive suite at a Pacific Island Resort, then take away the shared hallways bustling with a thousand other guests, the children overtaking the swimming pool, the buffet breakfast dash in a noisy communal restaurant and you have La Vista! Perfect views, delicious macadamia nut muesli and lemon myrtle and macadamia yogurt for breakfast and absolute peace and quiet. Our host Damien has lived in Byron Bay for years and recommended excellent restaurants all located within 5 mins drive of home. The beaches in Byron Bay rival the best in the Pacific, the water is clear, the sand is white and there is no hint of overcrowding at all. We enjoyed the freedom of being able to relax at home in luxury and pick up gorgeous Thai or Italian takeaways, or either walk or drive to some fine restaurants. Best food ever! Many organic options available in the quaint town with some surprisingly good shopping too. We will definitely be back, its the perfect honeymoon venue for those who want the "island holiday" honeymoon but want to have life's essential luxuries on their doorstep 'just in case'. In our five day stay, in complete relaxation mode, we managed to fit in a day spa, snorkeling, four excellent restaurants, surfing, tourist visits to the lighthouse, more eating, shopping in Byron Bay and the Gold Coast. We came back feeling relaxed after the stress of a wedding. Honestly, be a little different, for the same price as a package holiday in the Islands, we couldn't recommend this place highly enough for that independent couple who just want to get on and do whatever they want on their honeymoon. Thank-you Damien!

We came across La Vista a few weeks ago, a boutique resort style accommodation with four luxury Villas to choose from, just outside Byron Bay only minutes by car. We stayed with another couple and we loved the weekend break from Sydney, so calming, after a tumultuous month in January. We just wanted to thank Damien for his most generous gesture and warm hospitality. At the resort The Villas are superb, brilliantly appointed and his breakfasts are to die for every morning. Each day we woke up and couldn't get to the top deck quick enough. Best breakfast in the Bay. Anyway thanks again Damien it was a wonderful break and your kindness won’t be forgotten.
