Looking for a quiet beachside holiday? Alkira is a beautiful tranquil getaway from the frantic pace of city life. This fantastic two bedroom villa is located just 50 meters from one of Byrons best surf beaches. Enjoy gentle sea breezes with the sounds of the surf lulling you to sleep and birdsong in the treetops when you wake. Start your day by heading down to the beach to catch your first morning wave as the sun rises over the horizon, or take your dog for an early morning beach walk. or just grab a coffee and sit and watch the sunrise. You may even spot a whale or some dolphins frolicking in the surf.
Alkira is a light and airy spacious retreat for a romantic getaway any time of the year. Alternatively it is a great space for a small family or 2 couples looking for a holiday in this little piece of paradise. Well behaved pets are welcome with the pet-friendly leash- free section of the beach only moments from your doorstep!
The ground floor has an open plan living area that overlooks a private courtyard. It features louvre windows, high ceilings and fans to catch the sea breezes making the villa cool in summer, while a cosy romantic fireplace provides wintertime warmth. An additional sunroom area extends the living space and provides a separate nook where you can spend an afternoon reading or snoozing in comfort and let the kids watch TV. The villa is equipped with Foxtel, Blu-Ray DVD, stereo with IPod dock facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The sunroom opens through bi fold doors to the compact and smart courtyard. There is an electric BBQ and outdoor shower with hot and cold water. perfect after a refreshing swim at the beach. The courtyard captures the morning sun yet is well shaded in the afternoons when you want to relax in a cool tranquil space. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you need to cook up a storm including a coffee machine and a vegetable juicer for you to kick start the morning.
The villa is one of two and is situated at the front of the property with a private entrance and has no shared walls or ceilings. It can accommodate four people in two bedrooms upstairs both with queen sized beds. The master bedroom is generous in size with a large desk (if you must work), and a sunny balcony where you can relax with a good book. or in the evening sit with a glass of wine under the stars while listening to the surf. The bathroom has a separate bath tub and shower. There is a second toilet in the fully equipped laundry downstairs.
For those who haven't stayed in Suffolk Park before, you are sure to appreciate retreating to this little slice of paradise during your stay in Byron Bay. It is a great base to explore the beautiful hinterland and all that Byron Bay and its surrounds have to offer. It is only 5km away from the vibrant yet occasionally hectic Byron CBD so you can enjoy Byrons enchanting shops, unique markets, restaurants, music venues, cafes and cinemas. There is also a fabulous bike track at the northern end of Alcorn St for an easy bike ride into town and an hourly local bus service into Byron Bay. The Suffolk Park village shops include a supermarket, chemist, pub with bistro and bottle shop, casual restaurants and a very popular gourmet bakery.

Alkira was a lovely, well priced property which allowed us to take our dog with us. There was a small courtyard for her to be in whilst we were out exploring Byron however as Byron is a very dog friendly town she was with us for most of the time. The property was spacious and convenient enough to Byron Bay (approx 7 min car ride). It was a well prepared, self contained duplex and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to avoid eating out all of the time. As we went in December it was a bit warm so air conditioning would be the only thing we would add as the upstairs area does get quite warm. However, the fans and windows did help most of the time. We will definitely stay there again.
