I stayed at Port d'Hiver during President's Day weekend, 2013! My experience with them began before I even arrived. I booked and paid for my room (the Yellow Room) 4 months in advance. I let them know that I was planning a surprise for my husband's birthday and that 4 other couples would be joining us for the weekend. We also had food restrictions, so we asked for a meat-alternative to bacon/sausage. As the time neared, I called to add an in-room massage for my husband(I ended up having to cancel it later). They were very accomodating and contacted me by phone and email to confirm. They also confirmed my dinner reservations for me! The week before we were to arrive, they emailed and offered a complimentary room upgrade to their Carriage House Suite! They thought it would add to the surprise for my husband and thought it would allow for more space for his massage! Wow!!!! Of course, I accepted!
When we arrived(there was ample parking, unlike many B&Bs), we checked in and were given a tour of the grounds, while our luggage was taken to our suite. The house/grounds were beautiful! Everything was so cozy, intimate, and private, even though it's located on the corner of a somewhat busy street. They were still able to create privacy by putting up bamboo-like walls around the establishment.
Our suite was gorgeous, spacious, and well-appointed! It included a king-sized bed(so comfy), living room area, flat screen TV, huge bathroom with separate shower and jacuzzi tub! They paid such attention to detail that to greet us, there was a note welcoming us, on the bed. They even included an umbrella in the closet, along with bath robes! They offer comlimentary room service for breakfast, so we took advantage of that the first morning(so did the other couples who joined us). Again, the attention to detail was well noted! They didn't just bring you breakfast on a tray, they brought a table cloth and spread it out in the living room, setting it up with salt/pepper shakers and silverware, wrapped in napkins, with napkin holders! They also remembered our food restrictions and served us turkey sausage with our meal, instead of bacon/sausage. Remember, this is a B&B, not a hotel, but they managed to combine the best of both worlds under one roof! This is my 6th B&B and I've never had the choice of having room service, and complimentary at that! Even the fact that they had bellman service when we arrived, is unique! The B&Bs I've stayed in, usually don't have anyone to help you with your bags-You are pretty much on your own for everything.
The next day, we decided to go to Treetop Trek and do some zip lining for the first time! One couple did not go and decided to surprise us all with a late lunch in their room when we returned. The B&B staff helped by assisting them with the presentation. Again, the attention to detail was top of the line! They included tablecloths, and trays for the food, ice buckets for the wine-They turned their room into a mini restaurant buffet!
They also include a turn down service in the evenings, so our room was always nice and tidy when we returned from outings! They include a nice mini dessert on your bed wrapped in tulle! One night we had tasty brownies!!! Yummy! Again-Turn down service in a B&B???? Loved it!!!!!
Our last morning there, all 10 of us ate together. I reminded them that we would eat in the main dining room and was told that our table was already ready! When we went downstairs, we had a separate table that was set so beautifully!!! The breakfasts were plentiful, filling and delicious! We had broccoli quiche, spinach frittata, turkey sausage, turkey bacon, homemade blueberry muffin, homemade caramel french toast, potato pancakes, hashbrown casserole, homemade zuchinni bread, fruit, orange juice, hot chocolate...My mouth is watering as I reminisce!!!! My compliments to the chef!!! My compliments to the owner, Linda, and her hard working staff(especially Jen, who worked all weekend) for making our stay so memorable!!!! I highly recommend this B&B if you are ever in the Melbourne/Space Coast, FL area!!!!
Go for the rooms in the North or South Cabana, rather than the main house. Although, all the rooms a...
