High quality linen and towels are provided. The Shack has a fully equipped kitchen with a BBQ, Pizza Oven, a Gas cook top and a full size fridge/freezer with ice maker and cold water dispenser. There is a dining table, a pool table, a flat screen TV with DVD/Stereo and auxiliary port for your device. The Studio has a galley kitchen with an under counter fridge and an ice box. There is a coffee grinder and kettle. The galley is really just for breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks. The Upper deck off The Studio has a hammock, sofa and a small table and chairs. Relax, read, enjoy the view. The living area has a comfortable couch, large flat screen TV with Foxtel Movies, and JBL Stereo speakers with auxiliary port for your device. There is nearly always a breeze on the hill at La Vista. For those sultry days there are turbo ceiling fans in every room. Both buildings have Free WiFi coverage. The Plunge Pool and Spa are below The Studio’s upper deck. The Pool deck is the best place to cool off, relax, have a quiet drink and enjoy the fantastic View.More

How to get there
La Vista is sitting on top of a hill in Far North Queensland surrounded by rainforest, not a road in sight. However, La Vista’s concrete driveway is only 2 hours on the paved Captain Cook Highway from Cairns International Airport. Port Douglas is less than an hour away. Driving North on the Captain Cook Highway you’ll quickly leave Cairns and it’s northern beaches and find yourself on the coast road to Port Douglas. After ‘Port’ you’ll continue North through the sugar cane town of Mossman, and on till the Daintree River Ferry turn-off (right). Over the river, over the Alexandra range, and down into Cow Bay. Take the first right after the Cow Bay Hotel (pub) towards the beach. A further 500m on the right is La Vista.
