The Pictures don't do La Vista justice
La Vista was everything we hoped it would be. Truly, Dean's pictures do not do the setting justice. The views are gorgeous with Thornton Peak to the west and Cape Trib to the east. The sunrises and sunsets were magical. It was the perfect place to reunite with our son who has been in Australia since January. La Vista was also the perfect home base to explore the The Daintree, We hiked Mt. Sorrow, walked miles of beaches and discovered the undersea world of the Great Barrier Reef. But our favorite thing was just spending time back at La Vista. Cooking dinner together every night was great fun. I will admit I was skeptical of the outdoor kitchen and bugs, but none of my worries ever materialized! What made our stay at La Vista even better was Dean. He was so nice and helpful. We are so grateful to him for opening up his beautiful property to us for this very special trip! It was beyond perfect!

Amazingly beautiful view!
The view is what hooked me. We enjoyed the inside outside living. The house has lots of instructions and found it easy to navigate the systems. We were there for 4 days and felt the location was a great jumping off point to explore the area. We went on a jungle walk, croc tour, snorkeling, entomology museum, and played on the beaches. This was my first time staying in a rain forest and I felt like I got a chance to truly experience it.

5/5 Excellent

Jaw dropping!
Stunning doesn't even come close to describing this property! Everything is perfect! The bed is super comfortable but is nothing compared to spending mornings and evenings relaxing in the hammock taking in the views. The property is well stocked for everything you need in a stay. Highly recommended!

5/5 Excellent

What a view!
We had a great stay in La Vista. A breathtaking view, no neighbours in sight, you get the impression of being all alone in the rainforest, but with all the comfort you need! Tha shack and the studio are built with love and all is very well thought. The two Beds are really comfortable, but the additional sofa beds would do harm to the back of an adult. Those who sleep in the shack will hear animals going around the house in the night. In the studio, you just hear the birds singing. Dean was not on the site, but karen lives nearby and answered promptly to all our questions. Thanks a lot, Dean and Karen! Kerstin, nov. 2016

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful adventure.
We had a great time. The house was very nice and open. We were pleasantly surprised that there were so few bugs and mosquitos and we didn't have any problems with that. The view is stunning. We can definitely recommend it.
