WHERE IT ALL BEGAN....


When our family first bought land in Ewingsdale in 1984, we instantly fell in love with this peaceful part of Byron Bay. In the early 90s we bought the block of land where La Vista now stands and knew it had so much more to offer.

A dream grew to provide a high standard of accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay where visitors could experience the magic of being the first to see Australia’s sunrise, every day, from the luxury of their bed.

The first stage of building La Vista was the main home, which we commenced in 2004. Then followed two villas and a third was built in 2007, along with the pool and landscaping design. We opened in 2008 as a Bed and Breakfast offering guests individual villas with lovely finishes, in a tranquil environment.

In 2010, we built our first self-contained villa, with a separate living room and full kitchenette, ideal for longer stays. Next was the meticulously constructed paved driveway and pathways, followed by
various rock walls and trees planted…our dream was slowly becoming a reality.

Fast forward to 2015, our private retreat was attracting visitors from all over the world, each experiencing Australia’s first sunrise, rising full moons and magical evening stars. In 2017, with our newest villa complete, La Vista can accommodate 10 guests across five luxury villas. We hope to welcome you to La Vista where you can enjoy wonderfully still mornings, kookaburras singing in our fig tree and the magic of our night skies.
