They are both exclusively yours.
Ideally a couple can stay in The Studio retreat up top and another couple or children can have The Shack. Both have a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. The Studio also has a bathtub with views to Cape Tribulation. The Coral Sea, and Thorntons Peak (Queensland’s third highest mountain). Hotel 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 filtered water dispenser.

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 also has a hammock, sofa and a small table and chairs. Relax, read, enjoy the View. The living area has comfortable sofas, a recliner swivel armchair, large flat screen TV with Foxtel Movies, and JBL Stereo with auxiliary port for your device.

There is nearly always a breeze on the hill at La Vista. Perfectly positioned Windows, Doors & Turbo ceiling fans in all rooms make La Vista your very comfortable Holiday Home.
The Plunge Pool and Spa are below The Studio’s upper deck.
The Pool deck is the best place to cool off, relax in the hammocks, have a quiet drink and enjoy the fantastic View.

WILL I RECEIVE CONFIRMATION OF MY RESERVATION ?

WHERE ARE THE KEYS TO THE PROPERTY ?

We usually meet and spend 10 minutes with our guests between the hours of 2pm and 6pm.
If you arrive outside of these hours, keys are always available in the lockbox by the Shack entry door..

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED ?
Secure payments can be made by Credit Card, Debit Cards or Direct Deposit EFT's:
Visa, Mastercard and Paypal are accepted.

DO I NEED TRANSPORT ?
There is so much to see and explore in this beautiful location that it is really worth hiring a car. A two wheel drive car is all you need for local exploring. La Vista's paved concrete driveway looks steep at first but is easily accessible with a normal two wheel drive car.

DO YOU HAVE A SWIMMING POOL ?
We have a sparkling plunge pool with an attached 3 seat mosaic tiled Jet Spa.

HOW FAR IS THE BEACH ?
My favourite beach is at the end of the road; less than 3 minutes by car. It's a lovely quiet sandy beach in a small cove. (every chance you'll have it to yourselves). Thorntons Beach, a long stretch of white sand, and Cafe are 20 minutes by car. Of course you could go a little further north to Cape Tribulation; 30 minutes by car.

HOW FAR IS THE NEAREST RESTAURANT ?

There are several places to eat nearby. Crocodylus, a favourite with the locals is just 500m towards the beach. The Cow Bay pub which is 750 metres back on the main road. Floravilla, just before the pub, has great homemade ice cream.
Within 5-10 minutes you can drive to four more restaurants:
Daintree Wilderness Lodge.
Fan Palm Boardwalk Cafe.
Lynchaven.
Heritage Lodge.

WHERE CAN I BUY GROCERIES ?

You can buy essential items at the local shop, however, Woolworths in Mossman is the best place to stock up.

DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION POLICY ?

Yes, since the property is rented exclusively, we do have a cancellation policy:
Please contact us at your earliest convenience. Please check our Rental Terms & Conditions Policy below for details.

Location

Cow Bay, Queensland, Australia

When you visit La Vista for a night or two’s stay, or a special celebration with family or friends, you’re entering a simply stunning environment that you’ll fall in love with and remember fondly for years.

La Vista is not just two stylish post and beam houses built by hand, from sustainable timbers, not merely a wonderful place sitting high on the hill with Mountain and Ocean views – it’s an experience, a real taste of life in a tropical national park that many of our overseas friends tell us they’ve always been searching for, but never previously found.
“A little piece of rainforest heaven, with simply stunning views, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Daintree National Park, a true treasure.”

La Vista originally attracted us because of its absolutely amazing views right out across the breathtaking rainforest valley to Thorntons Peak (Queensland's 3rd highest mountain at 1320m) and beyond to the Coral Sea.

Our superb decks, by the pool, and terrace, provide charming vantage points from where you can relax, enjoy food, drinks and the stunning Vista.
We offer a place to relax and take a break, away from the crowds – but we’re not totally cut off, we do have free Wi-fi and Foxtel for those who want to stay in touch with the outside world!
