“Can't say enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

First I want to thank prior reviewers for their accurate reviews which made me feel comfortable to make the reservations. I now am also reviewing in hopes that business continues to boom for this location ( but no too much so that I can still book in the future again :) but so that they ( the guest) continue to make an effort to care for the property & keep it clean during the stay.

The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable, completely furnished and the sunrise/sunset view was gorgeous ! Bonus is that our 4legged baby ( the dog) was able to also stay and is permitted on the beach.

During our stay noise from ppl nor other dogs were never an issue or concern. The breakfast hands down was wayyyy yummier than any chain restaurant out in town. The food, service and variety of breakfast items was outstandingly impressive... Again as prior reviewers had said it would be.

All the Staff were kind, pet and veteran friendly. Location was perfect, especially if you are into fishing/boating. We would definitely stay there again as long as the owners, service and the price stay relatively the same. Totally worth the 4 hour drive to st. Augstine...

Staff was quite wonderful, friendly, and accommodating! The rooms were airy and clean, and fresh towels were plentiful, which was great, since our wedding party used the rooms to get dressed for the wedding after spending the afternoon relaxing on the beach. Location was fabulous -- we just strolled down to the rock jetty on the beach for our ceremony after the (thankfully, brief!) rain let up, and could not have asked for a more beautiful outdoor cathedral.

We stayed here the end of June, 2014....with our dogs. Pet friendly is huge for us but makes you wonder if when you get there it'll be clean or full of fleas, etc. The rooms were immaculate! Tile floors were nice and clean, bathroom was sparkling clean....the entire room was perfect....even the nooks and crannies! There were no dust bunnies or cob webs and NO DEAD BUGS!!! This place is right on the beach a beautiful view we had from our room on the first floor. The folks that run the place were very very nice and they even have a little eating area and cook you breakfast each morning! We had awesome breakfast each day.....eggs, biscuits, gravy and homemade quiche and muffins! Can't say enough about this place! We will be back! Only one thing that would have made it a little better.....a pool.

Room Tip: Room 106 was nice and quiet, first floor, on the end.

We spent six wonderful nights at the St. Augustine Beachhouse! Everyone of the staff were just as hospitable and pleasant as you could hope for. There was a wonderfully prepared hot breakfast every morning, served with a big smile! The location of the Beachhouse is right on the beach and within 2 to 3 miles of the historic downtown area. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is in the area to stay at the St. Augustine Beach House! I'm sure you will have a wonderful experience there, just as me and my wife did.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely hotel. It has a very charming appeal to it. Although our room was on the first floor we still had a nice view of the ocean. The lady who makes breakfast every morning always had something delicous to eat. If you don't like dogs I would not recommend staying here since they are allowed. However we are animal lovers so I don't feel it was an issue for us. Short walk to beach. This was a great stay!

Room Tip: I think any room is good since they all face ocean. First floor obviously not as expansive of a view...

We were pleasantly surprised! We are from Jacksonville and needed a pet friendly hotel close by and to find one oceanfront was perfect! It is an older hotel, but it is small, which means greater customer service and more of a beach feel. The rooms were like suites. Sink, good sized refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, etc. If you need plates, utensils, etc. you can get them through the front desk. They were spotlessly clean. Even the sheets smelled fresh and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A hot breakfast is included. The made to order waffles were delicious. 2nd floor room had a great ocean view. I can't think of anywhere else I would rather give my business to in the Vilano/St. Augustine area. Price was a little high, but you are going to find that at any oceanfront establishment in Florida during the summer.

My husband and I recently had the occasion to stay at The Saint Augustine Beach House and my o my what a delight. We have stayed in numerous condos and private homes along the beach but this hotel is jewel on the beach.

We were met by the innkeeper who took us directly to our room and what a surprise as we walked into an immaculate beachfront room. A crispy white King Sized bed was the first thing that you were drawn to which was located next to the door which opened onto a private balcony. It was as though you could reach out and touch the ocean.

The room contained a mini kitchen, pull out sleeper sofa and full bath. It was wonderful. Each morning a full breakfast was served from 7-10:30, oceanfront in
the dining area. The staff treats everyone as though they are part of the family and work hard to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

I highly recommend The Saint Augustine Beach House to anyone looking for a great place to stay without breaking the bank.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on each floor are breathtaking.
