Booked last minute so got a great deal. Very warm welcome, great front deck area for evening drinks, the room was spacious and the bed incredible (Florence bay was our room). Air con was a little noisy but the fan did the job well enough. Thanks!!!

Thanks for your great review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our front deck is such a wonderful spot to start your day with a coffee or finish off your day with a cold beer or glass of wine. The beautiful sea breezes are amazing. We look forward to maybe seeing you again oneday.

This accomodation is in a great spot, we just walked there from the ferry (10-15mins walk) and it was easy to find. Very cool and laid-back hostel vibe once there. A little bit of a surprise to us because of the price bracket in which we had booked (a private room with ensuite that was $140/night). We felt it was...

Thanks for staying with us on your recent visit to Maggie Island. We are located pretty central to alot of things here and the walk from the ferry along Gabul way is spectacular. I'm sorry to hear you were uncomfortable with our open plan ensuites, but we do have other accomodation suitable for all budgets.

COME TO ARCADIA BEACH GUEST HOUSE!!! Magnetic Island was really busy this weekend because of the full moon party so the only room available was a twin mixed room here.

Absolutely awesome stay! We stayed in the Fishermans Hut and to say it had enormous amounts of character is an understatement! The place also has a front deck where we met fellow travellers and local wildlife! We were extremely well looked after and wish the new managers all the best, they are doing a stellar job...

We originally booked to spend 2 nights in the safari tents and loved it so much we extended our stay on the island another night. We spent 3 nights staying elsewhere but this was definitely our accommodation highlight. We went in the low season so there was only a handful of other people staying. The owners were wonderful!

We stayed at Arcadia Beach Guest House in the Safari Tents for a long weekend winter getaway and couldn't be happier. Annie and Jed went the extra mile in making sure our stay was fantastic, even to the extent of driving us in the Rolls Royce to our afternoon festivities. The rooms are clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced...

We stay in the front room in July 2015. The place had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday: from breakfast at the door to washing facilities to clean our snorkelling gear. The shared facilities looked excellent (although we didn't cooked there). Restaurants were closed-by. Great snorkelling just across the street. Pick up and drop off from the ferry terminal...
