I found Arcadia Beach Guest House via the internet, and how lucky I was !
Pete and Jo, the new managers, picked me up by the ferry in a convertible VW Beetle. Colorful, friendly and helpful, always with a smile on their lips, if not a plain old funny remark, made this my most pleasant stay in Australia. Situated right by the beach and with great facilities, including a kitchen with all the cutlery you'd want, a great dining area with TV, rental cars on site etc. etc. Rooms were plain, but very clean. Dorms had two or four beds, all single-beds (no bunk beds for once). It's the kind of place, where you sit down and make friends with not just the managers, but also fellow-guests. Unlike Base Backpackers, it's a quiet place, where the focus is on a friendly peaceful atmosphere rather than party 24/7. Supermarket and restaurants close by, WI-FI on site. To top it all off, we were dropped off again by the ferry four days later in the lodge's Rolls Royce !!!
