“Charming accommodation”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Had 2 nights in the 'Gone Fishing' room and we loved it. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was warm, inviting and well appointed. So close to everything, we would certainly be back again for another child-free weekend.

We stayed 4 nights in the Beachcomber room and absolutely loved it. It really does feel like the old Byron Bay, nicely removed from the touristy stuff but still an easy walk to town and the beach. The room was nice and spacious with great character, and special mention to the super comfortable bed. Diane was a fantastic host with lots of recommendations about where to eat in the local area. Thanks so much for our lovely stay and hopefully we will see you again very soon.

After staying 2 nights at Arcadia, our first night in seafarers and the second in queen azuls spa room I have to say it was everything I was looking for. As me and my boy friend are over from england travelling Australia living in the back of our van we thought we'd treat our selves for my 21st. Both rooms were immaculately clean and the decor was impressive to say the least but still with a personal touch which reminded us of home. Both with big flat screen TVs, big comfy beds and lots of space, the rooms had tea and coffee making facility's (which was perfect for us) and our second room had an amazing Spa which felt like a real treat compared to our usual cold shower routine. Overall we throughly enjoyed our 2 days of relaxation an really did not want to leave, wishing we could have stayed all week! Would highly recommend! Heather and Julian

I stayed at Arcadia House for the first time last week and loved it. The balcony is gorgeous, the room was fantastic and I loved the location. Its away from the hustle so its peaceful but close enough to jump in when you want. Dianne is very welcoming and I'm already in the process of booking it again in July.
I cannot recommend it highly enough !!!

We had such a great time staying at Arcadia, the Queenslander style home really gives you a sense of living in someones beautiful home. Perfect location to the centre of Byron, about a 10 minute walk - just enough to avoid the noise and traffic. We rode the bikes into town that were there for use - which made it such a great way to get around town & live the Byron life. The rooms are gorgeous, high ceilings & all updated (some bathrooms still to be updated - but still very presentable) whilst keeping the old traditions. The house and the rooms (ours in particular) was very clean, tidy & cosy. We shared drinks on the outdoor deck in the afternoon watching the sun go down, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Our host Dianne was so lovely & friendly, very accommodating & made us feel very welcome. Great to stay here as a couple, on your own or with a group of friends each having their own rooms - you could hire the whole house out if there were enough of you, which would be amazing! Highly recommend it - a nice treat to have such a traditional (but updated) style home to stay in whilst in Byron, it suited the location very well. We can't wait to go back :)

Okay so we stayed here in December and booked to go back last weekend for a wedding in Byron. To my surprised the place was not booked out and Dianne offered us an upgrade so we could stay in the same room again - what a wonderful gesture, it made my day! Once again the place was spotless and the locality quiet. Can't fault this place. Id recommend the Beachcomber room as it opens on to the expansive deck and is spacious!
