First let me start off with how accommodating the staff is. I am in a wheelchair and have stayed at places that say they are wheelchair accessible and all that meant was you could get in the door. At the Bayfront Marin I was able to go anywhere on the grounds with ease. The staff was amazing!!! They were friendly,... More

There were zero personal touches at this corporate owned b&b. We arrived later on a Thursday, no welcome, no introduction or info offered to any amenities. Our room had 2 tiny pictures on the wall, one of them in the bathroom, and that's it for decor. the room is tiny and the photos were misleading. Breakfast 30 minutes late the... More

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We wish that we were a corporate owned bnb in instances like this—it would make reading a review like this much less personal for us. Because it is all very personal: the three paintings in your room were done by Sandy’s mother (she is nationally known for her... More

My husband and I were on our 1 year anniversary and decided to stay at the Bayfront. Everything was absolutely wonderful. They have an amazing happy hour every afternoon, included with your stay, and their breakfast was delicious. We stayed in King Georges room which overlooks the bay, it has a private swing in the balcony and was extremely cozy.... More

Went there with a friend for a mini vacation to explore St .Augustine. It was the best experience! The room was great, the food was delicious and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. If I am ever in the area again I will definitely be staying there :)

We stayed at the Beach Cottages, and fell in love. The cottage was everything we hoped for and more. The views from the room were spectacular and the food was delicious. Each room has a unique decor to accommodate your individual style. We will stay here again.

My husband and I spent our 6th anniversary at the Marin and will never forget it. The room was beautiful and the staff went above and beyond any expectations. We are planning on spending every anniversary with the Marin house from now on.

Best BB I've been to for several reasons. The location is perfect and close to everything, didn't need my car until the beach. The staff is amazing and friendly, and even let me put my sons formula in their fridge and ice packs if I needed to. The included breakfast was better than I would get at any hotel and... More

This is one of the best bed and breakfasts in St. Augustine, which is crowded with them. The rooms are excellently maintained, charming, and clean. They have kept historic details, but have updated finishings and kept it from feeling dingy. It was very quiet and relaxing. We were able to come very late after our wedding ceremony and the staff...
