“What a fabulous and friendly place!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This beautiful Victorian home is situated under beautiful shady trees. it is walking distance to shops, restaurants and attractions. Our room was lovely and the service was incredible. The breakfasts were out of this world. We met some other couples with whom we enjoyed some complimentary wine on the balcony outside their rooms.! Bonnie, the proprietor, is a lovely hostess! I look very forward to returning many times! I highly recommend Alexander Homestead in St.Augustine, Fl.

We spent our 17th wedding anniversary at the Alexander Homestead B&B. My husband chose this B&B as a surprise for me and what a wonderful choice he made! We stayed in the Hideaway Suite which is a private cottage above the garage behind the main house. I would LOVE to build one of these in our backyard! It was perfect! It even has two bathrooms! It was very comfortable and decorated so beautifully. Bonnie is a wonderful hostess and cook. I would highly recommend this awesome B&B!

My husband and I returned to Alexander Homestead- our favorite B&B in the US. Bonnie, our hostess, is so helpful and friendly, always willing to go out of her way to provide recommendations. We stayed in the Hideway Suite for the first time and we deteremined we would like to retire and stay in the suite. The large front porch connected to the suite lends itself to true outside Florida living, sitting, sipping, and snoozing. Amazing time!

Room Tip: Rooms with the porches are wonderful (if the weather is not too warm).

We spent one night in the Hideaway Suite and wished we didn't have to leave. Beautiful, fresh and very clean with everything we could need available. Spacious rooms with very comfortable bedding - even the sofa bed was comfortable. Fabulous breakfast delivered to our room in the morning...so nice! We will definitely return.

My husband and I recently stayed the weekend at the Alexander Homestead B&B in St. Augustine. We were warmly greeted by our hostess Bonnie, who was very accommodating from the start. We arrived a little early and so we called her and she made sure to have everything ready for us to get settled in so we could get out and do some early sightseeing.

We stayed on a Friday-Monday in the Queen Anne room. We had originally booked the Lady Grace but changed at the last minute since we wanted the private balcony. We were so happy we did, as this room was perfectly located. We were at the top of the stairs, but not to far back that it was inconvenient to bring our luggage. Directly in front of our room was a large refrigerator that stocked sodas, water, ice, etc. This was so perfect as we were able to keep food cold and enjoy the complimentary beverages she provided. There was also complimentary red, white, and zinfandel wine, as well as a delicious apricot brandy for guests to enjoy. Each morning fresh hot coffee (both regular and decaf) were brought up to the room outside.

Our room was a good size and our balcony was so delightful to sit on and enjoy the scenery and beautiful weather (with the exception of Saturday when it poured). The bathroom was small but sufficient. The shower had great water pressure but did have some temperature issues here and there, which is to be expected from an older home. There were wonderful little Alexander Homestead toiletries provided each day.

The one criticism about the room was that it didn't have it's own thermostat like some of the others did, so one night I was too hot, and the other I was too cold. It would definitely be helpful to have which rooms have their own thermostats on the website.

The breakfast each day was different and each one was better than the next. Each morning breakfast was served hot at exactly 9am. This was nice as it brought everyone together at the same time. In the past, I stayed at another B&B where breakfast was anytime between 8am and 10am. This was less intimate and we didn't get to meet as many nice people that way. Breakfast always started daily with a cup of fresh fruit (grapes, apples, pineapple, banana, etc.). There was vanilla yogurt to go over the fruit if preferred, and fresh homemade granola. So delicious!! Next, there was the main course - our first day it was a spinach and cheese quiche with bacon (ours was made sans bacon), potatoes, and Bonnie's Famous Homemade cinnamon sugar biscuit (which even had a cream cheese filling). The second day breakfast was my favorite. It was a french bread french toast with an almond syrup, and a cheese quiche baked with sweet honey chicken sausage on the bottom. There were even little mini blueberry muffins and butter. Unbelievable!! The third day, Bonnie was kind enough to accommodate us by making farm fresh eggs (instead of the bacon quiche), with potatoes, greens, and her homemade biscuit. Fresh orange juice, cranberry juice, tea, coffee, and water were served every day too. All of this took place in the wonderfully homey dining room by candlelight on her fine china dishes.

When we checked in, Bonnie was sure to give us a tour of the house, as well as a map to show where main points of interest were, and where recommended restaurants were located. She also provided us with a restaurant guide that had coupons and specials.

Bonnie and her sister and Terry were all very nice and we enjoyed sitting and chatting with them on occasion. The property is very close proximity to all major attractions within walking distance so that was very convenient. It's not too close where it was noisy outside, but close enough I was able to leave my husband to let him take a nap, and I went and shopped on St. George Street, King Street, and Charlotte Street without having to get a ride. Very safe part of town and there was plenty of parking on the property.

We got very beautiful photos of our experience and I can easily say that staying here was one of the highlights of my trip.

My husband and I came down for a get away and stayed in the hideaway suite. It was one of the most beautiful,welcoming,pleasant places we've ever stayed! Bonnie is incredibley welcoming, sweet and accomidating. Staying here felt more like staying with family than at a strangers home. We loved the seclusion we felt in the suite coupled with our delightful breakfasts in the main house with some wonderful couples and the most amazing food! Everything is within a beautiful walk from the house. The area is stunning and we have already started to plan our trip next year and will not be staying anywhere else!
