Allure Stradbroke Resort
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed in Shack 18, which is owner-managed, at Allure Resort. The owners were lovely to deal with, we arranged everything by email which was very efficient.

I loved staying at the beach shack, it was very cute and modern and had all the amenities for a comfortable weekend - could have easily stayed longer!

In a quiet part of Stradbroke, the beach shacks are very relaxing and you feel like you're a world away from everything else. Point Lookout is just ten minutes down the road and easily accessible by the frequent bus.

I loved every minute and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here at the end of May for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We booked the 'Whales Whales Whales' package for $450 which included 3 nights accommodation in a beach shack, late checkout and return transfer on the ferry which I thought was a really good deal compared to the other accommodation I had seen on the island. On booking we asked for a quite shack and were given shack 37 which backed onto bushland and was far enough from the car park one side and the bowling club the other to be a really quiet location. Our shack was well equipped for our stay and very comfortable. The staff that we saw were friendly and helpful at all times.

Attached to Allure is Tillers Café Pantry which we went to a couple of times for coffee and cake and also breakfast. The food here was very good and the cake portions were very generous which was appreciated! A short walk up the road is the Stradbroke Island Beach Hotel which we walked to during the evenings for an evening meal and drinks on the terrace. A short walk over the road from Allure is Home Beach, perfect for that lazy day on the beach or to watch the sunrise from.

Overall our stay at Allure was peaceful and relaxing and we would definitely return.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a quiet stay and are booking a beach shack, ask for one at the back that over...

The setting, location, style and feel from Allure really hits the mark, we felt like we were on holidays as soon as we arrived. The staff were efficient and pleasant and the facilities were well maintained. The on site cafe/grocer store was very handy and although we didn't use the pool as it was too cold for a swim, it looked beautiful. The gym facilities could be updated (i.e. the TV and aircon didn't work and the equipment was dated) but overall our stay was lovely and good value for money. Added bonus was the well-equipped kitchenette and outdoor eating area in a bush setting.

My wife and I stayed at Allure while getting married on Straddie, in a 4-room villa. Over the 5 nights we were there, we had 10 different people staying with us, and never felt cramped (although an ensuite would have been nice, 2 bathrooms for 10 people wasn't great). Nice big outdoor area was great for entertaining, large kitchen big enough for cooking for so many, and nice roomy rooms.

We've stayed at a few different places on Straddie now, and have to say Allure is as nice as anything we've seen out there, with decent furnishings and set in natural bushland, with some amazing beaches just across the road, a cafe (that made great coffee and sold some essentials) out the front, nice pool to lay around (although can't take alcohol in there) and a short stroll to the local Hotel. Lots of native animals around too, which our UK friends loved, including the hotel's resident goanna.

Biggest let down was seeing the 3-room villa that some family were staying at at Allure - it was definitely furnished and set out better then ours, including having 3 bathrooms, larger TV, bigger deck, and actually had a 4th small bedroom anyway. There also weren't enough towels provided given that our villa was set up to sleep 10.

Would definitely recommend Allure however for a great place to stay on Straddie!

We were due to stay in a Beach Shack for 3 nights in April 2014 (we were attending a wedding on the Island). Unfortunately, a Cyclone hit the area where we live on the day we were due to fly out, closing our airport & creating mass confusion and uncertainty. In the end, we managed to fly out the next day (the day of the actual wedding). The service we received from the staff at Allure over the phone and when we finally arrived was brilliant - especially the receptionist who quickly checked us in and after we dumped our bags, actually drove us to the wedding venue in her own car so we didn't miss the ceremony (we beat the bride by about 1 minute - yes, we were really that late!). Despite their T & C's being clear about refunds, given we were at the mercy of a Cyclone the resort offered to refund us for the night's accomodation that we missed (and the money is sitting back in my account as we speak). So all that, combined with the cute, bright and colourful beach shack we stayed in (and the excellent cakes at the cafe out the front) combined for a great, albeit short visit. Would highly recommend.

Stradbroke Island is a great get away from the busy-ness of Brisbane. Beautiful beaches, great cafe's and a refreshingly relaxed atmosphere. Stradbroke offers plenty of opportunities to simply hang out by the beach, go for beautiful walks, 4x4-ing, swimming, surfing, and most importantly, relaxing. I went out for a friend's 33rd b-day and had a great time with beautiful weather. Amazing a place like this is so close to a major metro area.

The actual resort offered excellent accommodations with great proximity to the beach (a 5 min walk), easy access to cafe's and pub. The units are clean, quiet and well maintained. Site staff are helpful yet it still feels private and personal. The floor plan offers plenty of space for people or kids to sleep.

It doesn't necessarily have ocean views, but that isn't really a deal breaker, Stradbroke is so stunning, you won't want to be in the room for anything but sleep anyway.

Highly recommended.

Stayed here for one night for a wedding. Was in the perfect location for wedding and reception which was great. Was a bit pricey for one night but more cost effective to stay for a few days

Was able to check into our room two hours early which was excellent. Room was modern. Water pressure in shower was very average and couch very uncomfortable. However, no big issue

Was incredibly quiet and managed to get a great sleep. There is also a pool and playground which is great for kids. Plenty of parking. Staff very helpful

Had a great breakfast at the cafe. Coffee was excellent! Get there earlier on weekends as gets busy with hotel guests etc
