Do you cater for children?
Alure Boutique Villas have been set up for couples to get away for a romantic and relaxing retreat. We are set up to accommodate only one couple per villa.
Alure Boutique Villas are nestled up against natural bush land that has an abundance of wildlife, with kangaroos, echidnas, birds and possums all inhabiting the area. For that reason we can not allow pets, as we do not wish to endanger the locals!
Are your villas smoking or non smoking?
Inside is definitely a non-smoking destination.

The Tented Villa is strictly non smoking inside and outside.
