“Really great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is a really nice place. The rooms are comfy, with soft robes, soft lighting, great bathrooms, and our room had a nice deck. Kathleen was really nice and went out of her way on several occasions to make sure we had everything we needed. It's on the tour route, and we were able to hear the clip-clop of horse hooves as the the carriages passed by the house. They also have wi-fi for those of us who had to keep up with work and e-mail. If you are looking for something clean, comfortable, a great breakfast, and in a location close to everything, this is the place.

Charming bed & breakfast in the heart of historic St. Augustine. Kathleen, the owner, is the perfect host. She starts by giving you a tour of her home, pointing out things like free goodies plus wine and beer for your evening cocktail hour. She's a wealth of information about local history, attractions and restaurants. Her B&B is filled with charming items throughout and our breakfasts were delicious and served on a place setting normally found only in upscale restaurants, but in a friendly make yourself at home atmosphere. The inn had everything we needed and Cathleen made us feel welcome.

Would I stay there again, absolutely.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending three nights here in late January. We got into town early, but Kathleen invited us to move in anyway. She gave us a tour of the very nicely decorated Bed & Breakfast, invited us to have a glass of wine and let us settle in. Kathleen is a wonderful host and has kept her home immaculate. She was also an excellent resource for questions about St. Augustine.

Casa de Suenos is located in a great spot, within easy walking distance of all the sights of St. Augustine. We stayed in the Cordova room, which features a balcony, jacuzzi tub with separate shower and another separate bathroom. The room was nicely furnished and the balcony was great! We ate a couple lunches out there, having picked up some food items from local restaurants and enjoying a glass of wine from Kathleen's selection. The room was a little noisy Saturday night, with the party-goers out on the street. That did not bother me, but my wife is a light sleeper, and was a bit disturbed by it. Sunday and Monday nights were quite peaceful. The sheets are incredible, and Kathleen has them available for purchase.

Breakfasts were superb with fresh fruits and berries and excellent dishes from Kathleen's kitchen. She had baked treats available throughout the day, wine in the afternoons, and cream sherry in the room for a nightcap.

We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast and would readily return there if we get back to St. Augustine.

Room Tip: I recommend the rooms with a balcony, just for the pleasure of sitting outside and enjoying the atmo...

My wife and I have made 5 visits to Casa De Suenos; 2002,04,06,08, and recently in Feb 2014. each time we were met with the utmost warmth. The inn's attention to every detail is obvious and it's quality has never waivered. Kathleen has always been an excellent host and each stay was truly a perfect blend of elegance and casual comfort. The Cordoba room is our home away from home and we are looking forward to returning there as soon as we can.

Room Tip: The Cordoba room has it all, and a great balcony!

We finally took Kathleen's advice and came for the "lights". Not only was Casa De Suenos superbly decorated and well lit, the rest of the city lived up to billing, 3 million lights and counting....but the real pleasure was returning to our favorite B& B right in the heart of it all. Kathleen's attention to detail is what separates this place from any other. We look forward to our next booking.....

Room Tip: Can't miss on any room but the Cordova (front right corner ) is really the best

My husband and I were only at Casa de Suenos for one evening and for one breakfast. That was truly our loss. We were given a warm welcome by the staff and the innkeeper, Kathleen Hurley. It is a beautiful home and extremely well appointed in the heart of Old St. Augustine. Breakfast was remarkable and I even came home with the recipe! Don't miss this stop.

Room Tip: First floor room was equipped with ramp which helped because my husband has a balance problem.

We have been coming to St. Augustine during the holidays for the past 11 years, and we have stayed with Kathleen for the majority of those visits. The times that we did not stay with her were less memorable, and we could not wait to get back to Casa de Suenos! Kathleen always makes you feel so comfortable and at home with her hospitality. We have always stayed in the Cordova or Valencia suites, which have a wonderful balcony to enjoy a nice cocktail or just people watch. They also have a Jacuzzi (which is wonderful after a day full of walking), and amazing, comfortable beds. Each of the rooms are also decorated with it's own little Christmas tree. If you need a dinner reservation or want to take a carriage ride, she will take care of those for you as well. And the breakfasts are just amazing. Hot tea and coffee are served, followed by fresh fruit with a delicious yogurt sauce for dipping, and ending with a hearty breakfast. This past time we had praline French toast with turkey sausage, and another day had bacon, English muffins and a cheddar cheese/egg quiche. Yummy!!

We just love St. Augustine, and particularly love staying with Kathleen at Casa de Suenos. She is a very special, lovely woman! Can't wait to come back again soon!!
