This bed and breakfast is every bit as beautiful as it is in the online photos. In fact, when you factor in the cool bay breezes and the fresh roses that are displayed throughout the common areas, the house is even better than we expected.

Andrew greeted us upon arrival and allowed us to check in several hours early. He provided us with the excellent information about the area and the local restaurants.

We stayed in the Esmeralda room. It is a nice room and very conveniently located on the first floor right next to the office and just off the side porch, where we enjoyed sitting for breakfast and for the evening social. The beds are comfortable and the room is very clean. It is also beautifully decorated. The floors and the bathroom door are a bit squeaky, but that is to be expected in a house of this age.

We presented our breakfast order cards the night before, specifying what we wanted to eat, where we wanted to eat, and at what time. There was a large variety of choices, just as explained on the website. Every morning the staff greeted us with a friendly smile and got our order perfect. The food was high quality and delicious.

The evening social food and drinks are also wonderful. We had a variety of crackers and chips with different types of dips, like guacamole, spinach artichoke, and fresh salsa. There was also a nice variety of beer, wine and soda. We really enjoyed sitting on the side porch, looking at the bay, and enjoying the breeze. For June in Florida (with temps in the low 90's), this is a great place to stay and even sit outside because of the shade and the cool bay breezes.

Although the social does not begin until 5:30, when Joy saw us around 3 pm, she asked if we would like anything to drink. She brought us our requests, which just exemplifies the service at this establishment.

The location is also wonderful. The inn is far enough away from the bustle that it is quiet, yet close enough to walk to most of the major shops, restaurants, and attractions, if one is in good health. There are several good restaurants very close to the inn and a trolley stop nearby, for those who have difficulty walking a distance.

The parking lot for the inn is several blocks away, but it was not a big inconvenience. We easily found street parking (paid and metered) in front of the inn for check in and check out, then we moved our car to the lot. We could even park the car in front of the inn for free overnight if we wanted (if we could find a spot), as the street parking is only enforced from 8 am until 5 pm.

We saw most of the other inns in the area, and we decided that we chose the best one. The location was the best and it was such a beautiful inn with amazing porches, great service, nice rooms, and yummy food. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Check out the website! Choose the room for you!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Service was excellent, grounds were relaxing, room was great. This is a great place to relax and enjoy St. Augustine. Easy walking distance to old town. We would come back. Owners were very accomodating and go out of their way to make sure you are satified.. Loved the place.

Room Tip: Look for any specials they have to offer..

This was our 3rd stay at the Westcott over the last 10 years and it just keeps getting better and better each time. We love the location right on the bayand a short wlk to historic down town. The owners, Andrew and Joy as well as their whole staff go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and pampered. The room rates are a great value considering that along with a fabulouse room you get to enjoy a hour and a half social event each night with complimentary wine, beer and beverages served with hors d'oeuvre's and a 5 star breakfast served to you on the open patio, white linen and all.
Can't wait to go back!!!

We stayed at the Bayfront Westcott for two nights and wished we had been able to stay longer. Can't say enough great things about this B & B. Andrew and Joy were delightful hosts, ready to help with any request. The food was amazing! Loved their twists on southern favorites, particularly the grits! The evening social hour came with beer, wine, or soft drinks, and a variety of yummy spreads, cheeses and crackers.
Soft sheets, good coffee, great food, and perfect location. Really, I can't say enough good things about the Bayfront Westcott!

This was our second time staying at the bayfront westcott :) The first time a few years back we got the menendez room which is roomy and beautiful, the second time we got the Ponce de Leon room, which has a spa tub. (note to self, I nailed my knee on the sculpted leg of the bed about 7 times in the ponce de leon room so beware, its a tight space there, lol) We got a romance package both times, the massage therapist that does the incall massages is fantastic and the bath stuffs were cute and functional. This a great place to get away if you want some quiet romantic time with a loved one, they have a happy/social hour which is a great way to say hello and have a glass of wine before trekking out to dinner. Breakfast was a friatta with assorted fruits and bagel/toast with pb or cream cheese. We were very satisfied and would love to return for our next anniversary.

We only stayed in St Augustine for one night before driving to Orlando to fly out. It was the end of our roadtrip from Washington DC so we were a bit tired. This was a perfect place to relax and catch our breath. Wish we could have been there longer.

The owners were so helpful in every way. Apparently, they have only owned if for a year and have made a lot of changes. I am not sure what all of the changes were, but the rooms were lovely, the staff/owners helpful and sitting on the porch to start the day with a wonderful breakfast with the water right across the road is perfect. Wine with cheese and crackers is served in the evening.

Loved the Westcott House!
