My wife and I were looking for a nice, quiet, comfortable hotel or inn that was near the sites in St. Augustine, FL, the nation's oldest city. We definitely found that experience at Casa de Suenos Bed & Breakfast. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the host and owner of the inn. She gave us a tour of the entire inn, and guided us to our room.
The room was very nicely decorated with shades and curtains on all windows, and provided us with all the necessities of home, including HDTV, radio, CD, DVD and VHS players, a small refrigerator, and wireless internet. The king size bed was very comfortable and also nicely decorated with pillows and a soft comforter. Our room had a big bathroom, with a shower and jacuzzi bath, complete with candles! We also had a private balcony with seating.
The inn was within walking distance of the main gates into the old city and most of the popular sites. Once we parked our car in the private parking lot we never had to use it.
Our host also provided us with information and directions, and answered all our inquiries about the city and popular sites. She also provided us with menus, fliers, coupons and walking maps to all restaurants and site seeing tours in the city. A small seating room and library in the inn contained information, books, and DVD and VHS tapes that could be borrowed for viewing in our room.
Breakfast each morning was delightful, with fresh fruit and breads, and a warm, delicious, quiche or french toast, served with soft butter and warm, maple syrup, and all the fresh coffee or juice we desired. On Friday evening, there was a social hour, were we had the opportunity to meet and greet other guests at the inn and share our experiences and sites of the city.
The only thing missing from the room was a phone. However, we did not notice since we always use our cell phones and any information we needed was provided by our host!
Yes, Casa de Suenos provided us with all the comforts of home and more.
