Alkira is a beautiful tranquil getaway from the frantic pace of city life. This two bedroom villa is located just 50 meters from one of Byron's best surf beaches. 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. Well behaved pets are welcome.
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.
