"Best thing for us is the beautiful location, the comfort of the house, the breathtaking night skies. Absolute peace and quiet, blue wrens, possums, goannas, dolphins. We caught some beautiful salmon trout for our dinner."

"Allure gave us a most relaxing holiday. The house was interesting, warm and very comfortable with stunning views of Pennington Bay. The driveway was a challenge as we did not expect it to be so long.. just over 800 meters. Our dogs just loved the freedom of exploring the natural bushland."

"This isn't true luxury in the classical sense but it is a magical place nevertheless. The driveway is an adventure and the house is a bit eclectic, but there is a peace to the place that just does make you relax."

"Stunning! we all loved the fantastic Art collection the groovy furniture. You can not often find rental accomadation that is so comfortable and as interesting as the actual location. 50 fantastic acres of wilderness (was to us city folk).The fishing was darn good as was lying on the balcony drinking the complementary K.I. wine"

"Loved the peace. The animals walking around at night. The stars are extrodinary.The house is very enjoyable with all the modern cons. Great to see an eco house that is workable and well just like a normaL HOUSE BUT NOT TO MANY PEOPLE Are blessed with those veiws , Pennington Bay is a fantastic beach."

"Allure Beach Retreat is an absolutely tranquil, beautiful piece of paradise nestled in the gloroius bushland a stone throw from the crystal clear pristene beach! It is by far the most beautiful and relaxing holiday house that we have ever stayed in! Cannot speak highly enough of the eco-friendly home! My favourtie thing was the bath overlooking the magnificant views and the outdoor shower under the stars in the moonlight on a hot summers night! Would highly reccommend this holiday home to anyone who wishes to have a romantic, tranquil escape with the beach at your doorstep!"

"We saw Dolphins Seals and had some great surf. All of this at our own beach.We ran around the house trying to find a room that did not have a veiw. Then we had a vote on the best room and could not agree. Loved the Allure of Allure Beach Retreat. Thanks again Alison"

"We had an excellent stay. The major need was to escape the stresses and strains of getting ready to make a major move from Australia to the United States. We couldn't have asked for a better location. KI is beautiful and relaxing and the Allure Beach Retreat is pretty isolated and represents a back to nature approach. If you want all mod cons and creature comforts then go stay elsewhere. If you're prepared to soak up the surrounds, chill out and just accept being helplessly relaxed then this is the place for you. We had birds swooping during the day and wallabies hopping on the verandah at night.
A major point to note...while isolated from the general public, there is not much privacy from your fellow occupants. Unless you are exceptionally liberated, I'd recommend staying with close family only. Showering and sleeping is pretty public. That said, if you're prepared to relax into it, you'll find it very liberating. Even my 15 yo son openly showered outdoors and also while framed in the glass windows looking out at the beautiful beach and surounds! Alison...massive thanks for a great stay and we'll be back when we return to Aus in a few years!"

"Allure is remarkable our party of 6 made it a very reasonably priced get away. We did not feel crowded even the open living worked. Interesting art works. We have booked it again."
- Kevin , S.A. -
"We have never slept so peacefully being city folk. Just to listen to the waves and hear the Kangaroos jump around we all loved it."
- Karen, NSW -
"We are comming back loved all the funky quircky furniture the house is clean with all rooms offering fab views of the ocean or hills"
- Amanda, NT -
"To be able to walk around naked to have a heated outdoor shower while watching the ocean all in complete privacy because you are situated on 50acres of scrub. Well just bliss!"
- Maggie, SA -
"'Allure' is perfectly located in the sand hills as a secluded and excellent retreat. The accommodation is well-fitted out with comfortable amenities. Stunning views from the balcony, lounge and bathroom!! I recommend it to others."
- Frank, SA -
"Beautifully secluded and comfortable retreat. The driveway was a challenge but enhanced the isolation. Would have loved to have seen a wallaby but alas only sighted animal tracks."
- Janine, VIC -
"A lovely, beautiful, perfectly remote spot. "

"The Allure Beach Retreat was comfortable and relaxing. The off-peak rate was very good value for the four of us. The overall experience was fantastic, we felt relaxed and free from the day to day hassles. It felt very secluded, like we were a world away. It was wonderful to be able to take our dog "Chica" with us, she had the time of her life, esspecially when she disappeared for over an hour in the scrub on our first night. I don't know how far she went but she practically slept the whole next day! My only concern is for those of us who have cars that are low to the ground, the track from the road to the house is a little treacherous. We only managed to get to the house because three of us hopped out of the car and walked and even then it was a little hairy (but fun!)"

"Fantastic location, rustic and wonderfully private. Thoroughly enjoyed our walks to the bay, the views from the bathroom and the house generally."
- Stu, VIC -
"We had great time, enjoyed the natural surrounds and the beach. Good deck and lots of space to lounge around in comfort and take in the outdoors. The wood fire was a must and kept us warm."
