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! Super friendly...

Thanks for your great review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here. We pride ourselves on our super relaxed environment and homely feel. Even in our busy periods our guesthouse never feels overcrowded or busy. We look forward to welcoming you back to our home should you ever return to beautiful Magnetic Island.

Ad in brochure (Magnetic Island Guide May -oct 2016) said from $50 to hire (displays picture of a mini moke)....surprise, surprise!....they do not have any vehicles for that price anymore (false advertising) & it is $80 for 5 hours. What a fun car NOT! Vehicle, while reliable, was very well used & the steering was rather sloppy & to disengage...

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...

Positives: the new managers were super friendly and seemed to keep the place quite clean. It was affordable, clean and in a good location with being close to other beaches. A nice cafe right behind it and a convenient store. Just a quick ten minute walk and then you're near another beautiful beach, bottle o and sports bar. There is...

I am glad you enjoyed your stay here with us on the island. Unfortunately you stayed with us on a weekend where the island celebrates its full moon festivities and one of the local businesses hold a full moon party.

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...

We live in Townsville and wanted a weekend away to chill out. And we found it here! Accommodation suited our needs, the outdoor tent rooms were fantastic and comfy. Probably wouldnt recommend in the warmer months. Guest house was clean and had everything we needed in the communal kitchen when we cooked dinner. This isnt a 5 star hotel, so...

Just left after a 3 night stay. The people who ran the hotel was very friendly and welcoming. Our beach safari tent was very cosy and it was nice to hear all the different birds in the night. It was only a 15-20 walk from the ferry terminal and a short bus ride (which costs $2.30) to Horse shoe bay....
