“Best B&B Ever! Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My husband and I were in town for my best friend's wedding (Sept 28, 2012 - Oct 1, 2012), and we all stayed at this B&B. First of all, the location is fabulous. It's within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to do while there. The room we stayed in was the Princess Margaret room, which was recently renovated, and we loved it!! The bathroom had a big jetted bathtub, and a huge shower with multiple shower heads. The bed was very comfortable (best nights of sleep I've had in a while) and there was an electric fireplace to give a romantic ambiance. It was very clean and tastefully decorated all around. Outside of our room (2nd floor) there was a seating area where we met up with friends to enjoy a cocktail and take in the view of the water.

We ordered breakfast in bed two days, and ate in the courtyard one day. The food is delicious!! A special thumbs up on their french toast and grits - best I've had in years!! They also have happy hour from 5pm-7pm daily, and the homemade sangria is amazing.

The owners (Mike and Sandy) and the rest of the staff are kind, inviting and take time to talk to you and ma ke sure you are always taken care of. We felt some at home here, and will definitely be coming back soon. We're already discussing our next trip in February.

Room Tip: All of their rooms have different themes, so make sure you go online and look at the pictures before...

We stayed here for one night when we went to a concert at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. We fell in love immediately! The location was great within walking distance to historic downtown where all the eateries and shops are. Our room was beautifully appointed and very well maintained. We had breakfast in the veranda overlooking the lake, which was so delightful. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We will be back soon!

I recently returned to the Bayfront Marin House to attend a late-afternoon, outdoor wedding. Several members of the wedding party stayed at the B&B, and thus were relaxed and all smiles for the ceremony. The waterfront setting couldn't have been more picturesque. The whole event was beautifully managed, the courtyard gazebo was attractively adorned, and the 50 or so wedding guests were made to feel extremely comfortable. Everything went off without a hitch. Thanks to the Bayfront Marin House staff for an unforgettable evening.

Stayed for 4 nights in Sept 2012 and loved it. Location is excellent within easy walking distance of all the main sites and restaurants of St Augustine. Our balcony room was large with an extravagant bath and high four poster bed; it was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed both our breakfasts and the happy hour drinks and nibbles. We spent most afternoons relaxing in the grounds of the B&B, sitting in the shade of the gazebo or lying in the hammock, which were perfect ways to escape the heat and humidity. Everyone at the B&B were wonderfully friendly and very helpful. We had 4 laid back days enjoying the sites of St Augustine and the comforts and hospitality of the Bayfront MArin House B&B.

We just returned from a trip to the Bayfront Marin House.We were there from Sept.16th -Sept. 19th. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. Our anniversary was actually in Aug., but we decided to wait until Sept. to go to Florida, because we knew it would be a little cooler. Our trip was definitely worth the wait. Everything was perfect; from our lovely Hopkins cottage with double jacuzzi, to the swing outside the door. I even had a beautiful bouquet of roses waiting for me in our room.Mike, you and your staff were super. We appreciated the hospitality so much.We felt like we were family. We enjoyed having our breakfasts in the courtyard every morning and having the beautiful view of the bay. We also enjoyed happy hour in the afternoon and watching the beautiful sunsets from the courtyard and the swing. Mary's breakfasts and desserts were delicious. She even shared her recipe for strawberry rhubarb dump cake with me. That was so sweet. We were impressed that your staff arranged a carriage ride for us, and that the carriage picked us up right out front, took us for a tour, and delivered us to a restaurant. It was great to not have to try to schedule it ourselves. We have stayed at many B&B's in other states, but this is the best one that we have ever stayed in. We were also impressed at how close it was to everything and even to the beach. If you are looking for romance, this is definitely the place to go. We felt like we were on a second honeymoon. Thanks again to all your great staff for going out of their way to do anything for us. We hope to return to the Bayfront Marin again someday.

Room Tip: Having a room on the 1st floor is nice to have when carrying in luggage.

B&B is located right across the street from the water & within walking distance to local shops & restaraunts. Beaches are just across the bridge (which is a few blocks away) and take only a few minutes to drive to. The variety of breakfasts ea morning were delicious and always looked forward to. The room was very clean and welcoming. We used the bicycles & beach chairs/towels which was very nice to have as an amenity. The staff was very helpful and available & always asked if everything was alright, they were geniunely interested to know if something was not to your liking. I would go again.

Room Tip: Room on the top floor front of the building is the most private.

After months of review searching and research we decided on the Bayfront Marin Inn in St. Augustine for our baby moon. We only live a short 45 minutes away and have never stayed in San Augustine before but have always wanted to stay at a bed-and-breakfast. Upon arriving, check-in was very easy, and we were taken to our room after being given instructions on how to decide on breakfast food and location for the following morning.
We had a little trouble with our room (not their fault). Being 8.5 months pregnant it was a little warm and we were warned that turning the air conditioning down too low may freeze the unit. So instead they just relocated us to an upgraded room at no additional charge, may I add. I believe this was the King George room with a private front facing porch and very spacious interior.
We thoroughly enjoyed being able to lounge on the many choices of outdoor furniture both on the first and second-floor porches. This is where we spent most of our time during the weekend.
As for breakfast, we loved being able to sit in the gazebo or the courtyard and not just have to settle for an indoor dining room. The staff was very attentive and we never left feeling unimportant. I don't even like eggs Benedict, but I did thoroughly enjoy these. As for my husband who orders eggs Benedict any time we eat out, he said these were one of best he's ever had.
Our stay was very quiet and relaxing. We are so happy that we chose to stay here and will absolutely be back as well as highly recommend it to anyone who will listen.
