Great stay here, 1k walk from ferry and on the bus route. Friendly owners. Great decking out the front overlooking the beach, used the BBQ to cook dinner with a few beers. Comfy double bed with aircon and shared bathrooms which were all clean. Great budget accommodation

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. Although it is the most expensive hostel I stayed at in Australia, there are limited options on Magnetic Island. The location is good, a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal (they offer to pick you up for a charge, but it's easily walkable), and right on the beach. The room was...

We hadn't planned on staying at Arcadia Guest House but due to a booking mistake in the hostel we got to spend two nights - and I'm so glad we did! It's a beautiful house just one crossed street away from the ocean; you can hear the waves from inside. The house is beautiful and lovingly decorated, with many nice...

We rented a 4WD of Arcadia and it was great. We got a rustic dark red Suzuki (Jurassic Park style that we named Alan) and cruised around the island in. We played our music, had a right laugh bumping all over the place and saw all the amazing bays and viewpoints. The guy who we rented off was exceptionally helpful...

Everything about this place is perfect. The rooms are beautiful, bathrooms and showers are spacious, it's located right in front of the beach, it's got 2 fully equipped kitchens, and you can rent 4x4 vehicules, kayaks & snorkel equipment. But the best part is the staff. Annie, Jed, Angus & Andrew will go out of their way to make your...
