Beautiful period guesthouse at Byron Bay. Relatively central location and courtesy bicycles available for use. Only downfall is the period home characteristic besides it's beauty. 'thin' wall and crackling floor - beautiful but don't block noise.

Stayed 2 nights in the Queen Azul Spa Room. Absolutely, the most beautiful accommodation I have ever stayed in. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was immaculate. Although close to the main part of town, the room was peaceful, quiet and super relaxing. Dianne was also lovely host. Would definitely recommend when staying in Byron.

We stayed 4 nights in Arcadia House. The bed was comfortable and big. The bathroom is very spacious and clean. Diane is a lovely and helpful host, very welcoming. The guest house is in a very convenient spot, close to the beach and the town centre but far enough from the noisy streets. Only noise at night was the wind....

We stayed here for 2 nights and were in the Beachcomber room which had high ceilings, wooden floors, was spotless and spacious with a door leading to the verandah where you could sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Arcadia House is a stunning property and Dianne has really thought of everything - as well as a fridge in your...

We were bewitched by this charming, colonial guesthouse. Idyllic and beautifully renovated a lot of loving attention goes into every detail. The wrap around porch is begging for some relaxing downtime, reading a book, listening to the local birds as it is in a quiet neighborhood slightly away from the main part of Byron (still in close proximity, though). Dreamy...

We stayed here for one night in December. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and had a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath. The location was good, perhaps a 15 minute walk to the centre of Byron Bay. There are bikes provided for guests use. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone.

We stayed here for 1 night and the house and particularly the room we stayed in were absolutely beautiful. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and Dianne could not have been more lovely or helpful. It's a short walk to the most amazing beach and an equally short walk to the main town. Perfect location . I cannot recommend this place enough....

In Greek mythology, Arcadia was the home of the god Pan, and more recently it refers to an idyll or a place of harmony. Aptly named, Arcadia House has some idyllic attributes. The property is a renovated colonial home with a wide, dark central hallway and generous bedrooms opening onto leafy, cool verandahs. Our bed was very comfortable. Often in...

This was our second trip to Byron and our second time staying in Arcadia House, the stay as the first was top notch. Clean, quiet accommodation and only a quick walk to both the beach and the CBD bars and restaurants. Would recommend
