When incredible architecture meets breathtaking nature, the result is something truly phenomenal – and that is the case in this Cape Tribulation’s award-winning holiday house ‘Alkira’.
The ultimate in privacy, indulgence and advanced green innovation, this property is truly one-of-a-kind – and a must-visit on your Far North Queensland holiday.
Located in the heart of the world’s oldest rainforest, Alkira’s impressive concrete structure floats exquisitely on a lake, in the shape of a lotus flower.
Featuring a private pool, a stunning lake view and a whopping 600-metre stretch of private ocean beach along The Great Barrier Reef, the property is nothing short of amazing.
Originally called the Stamp House, the distinguishing features of the house are inspired by stamps, and the shape of the unique swimming pool is based on the silhouette of the head on the One Pound Jimmy postage stamp issued in Australia in the 1950s.
Existing in perfect harmony with nature, Alkira is powered by solar energy and its green design is an excellent example of sustainable rainforest architecture.
Specifically designed to stand the test of its tropical environment, Alkira was built to perfection – it is even Category 5 cyclone-proof and therefore classed as a cyclone shelter!
Sitting on 30 hectares of land in the glorious Daintree rainforest, three hours from Cairns airport, this mesmerising home is the ultimate private sanctuary, perfect for relaxing and unwinding completely.
The house features six elegant bedrooms, an open-air theatre, a Miele kitchen, teppanyaki grill, walk-in cool room, wine cellar, home office and a helipad – this luxurious oasis has everything you need for an unforgettable holiday.
