Where the Ocean Meets the MountainsALKIRAAn Air BnB Listing

This week we had the pleasure of meeting Tom and Colleen, from Coffs Harbour NSW. Tom and Colleen welcomed us into their gorgeous hillside property, ALKIRA, on the NSW Mid North Coast to take photographs for an Air BnB listing.

We spent a leisurely overcast morning walking about their home amongst fig, banana and lime trees and admiring their panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from their coastal home. Set on 13 acres and surrounded by beautiful rain forest, it wasn’t hard to imagine a relaxing weekend in their newly renovated private studio.


Featuring a separate entrance to a newly renovated and furnished private room, ensuite and laundry with direct access to the saltwater pool and an outdoor solar heated shower. With a magnificent outlook of sweeping ocean views from the elevated position and surrounded by lush green rainforest, you could be forgiven for thinking you had stumbled into a private oasis.

Colleen and Tom are so thoughtful in their hospitality that you can expect delightful homely touches in the form of fresh organic fruit (bananas, figs passionfruit, tree tomatoes and more, depending on the season) from their property, freshly baked bread and rolls, beautiful organic coffee, milk and breakfast spreads.

If you’re lucky, like us, you may even have a chance encounter with the local kookaburras and tree frogs.

They really do live in a little slice of paradise.
