“Just beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2009

My husband Mark booked this for our wedding anniversay, it was just perfect, the setting awesome, watching the sunrise over the horizon in the morning. This is a very special, very private place. The accommodation beautiful and set out tastefully, we didn't want to leave, so relaxing. Our host, Damien prepared a wonderful breakfeast iand looked after us well withou being obtrustive. If you are looking for that weekend to yourselves in a most beautiful setting it would have to be here. Would definitely recommend it

Sorry, but No
Don't get me wrong Byron Bay is an awesome place and the Vista is a nice place to stay, however the proprietor, Damien, doesn't really know about customer service.
He's a very gregarious character, however he thinks that this will get him through.
We had the unfortunate experience of running out of hotwater as he "forgot" to turn on a tap to a new gas bottle. He really didn't seem to think this was important to leave guests without showers or a bath for over half a day.
While he may seem flash in the kitchen we saw things that made us cringe - licking the top of the honey bottle and then using the honey for your guests breakfast is just not on.

So we're sorry - but no we wouldn't go back. Damien must have spent a heap on this place but he's missing the last 5% in customer service that would take his place from very below average customer service to an expceptionally great place.

I was surfing around AU and showed up to Byrons Bay. Damo, the proprietor, of La Vista convinced me to check it out. It is such a great place to bring your family or a few friends as he will make sure you are taken care of in a classic Australian fashion.

He is a great point of contact in the area, and a fantastic cook.

The place sits up on a hill just a close ride from town with ocean breezes. It is not a bed and breakfast, rather more like your own house with a great proprietor. If you want to have your own small compound for your family, or just a few couples check it out.
