If you want to go to a place that you just want to relax, unwind, and be pampered the Bayfront Marin House Bed and Breakfast is the place to go. My wife and I just wanted to get a way for the day and night so we decided to visit this place. WOW is all I can say. Great rooms, great views of the bay and walking distance to any shop in St Augustine. I highly recommend this place

My wife and I stayed at the Bayfront Marin House, at the same time they were filming the B&B for some travel websites. To our delight the owners offered us complimentary champagne and asked if we wanted to be part of the filming. We ended up having a great time, and are really excited about possibly being feature in their video. Our room exceeded expectations, and was decorated beautifully. The breakfast was delicious and was delivered to us by our request in the gazebo. Despite the fact that the owners were busy with the filming they took the time to chat with us whenever possible. We also had a great time drinking the complimentary sangria, and chatting with Mary in the evening. We will definitely be back and would recommend the Bayfront Marin House to anyone.

Now I have stayed at many B&B’s across the US and I must say, “This one has it all”! You can’t go wrong with the Bayfront Marin House! The atmosphere throughout the Inn is warm and charming. Our room was cozy (but still spacious), beautifully decorated and the bed was perfect. Breakfast was delectable, too. And the location is perfect: directly across from the bay and within walking distance to all St. Augustine has to offer. But the best part of staying at the Bayfront Marin House was the hospitality. Mary, Donna and the rest of the staff is what really makes this place. You actually see them throughout your stay, not just at breakfast. They actually take time to visit with guests and offer great suggestions on things to do and local dining. Don’t miss out on this wonderful place…it is truly a gem! We highly recommend the wonderful establishment!

My boyfriend and I had an AMAZING time at the Bayfront Marin House. When we arrived early, we checked in, parked our car, and borrowed bikes to ride to the beach and farmers market. It was amazing. We took several detours on our way back to explore the lighthouse and take in the views at the top. Back at the Marin House just in time for their TWO HOUR long happy hour which had beer, wine, sangria, and appetizers! We sat in the courtyard and watched the sailboats in the bay, then sat outside for some sushi at "Spy" and had some sake in their new bar! The sushi was fabulous. We were excited to get back to the room to relax and use our jacuzzi! My boyfriend surprised me and had them put flower petals and champagne in our room, and light candles for us! So romantic! After having an amazing nights sleep, we woke up in the morning for breakfast (and mimosas!) in bed and watched the ocean. It was one of the best trips we ever went on- the rooms were amazing, St. Augustine was great, and the staff was soo helpful in doing everything they could to make our stay as perfect as possible. Definitely going to return. BEYOND Highly recommended.

My wife took me away on a surprise weekend getaway for my Birthday. We arrived at our destination and were very pleased at the location and the overall look of the place. We checked in and everyone was extra friendly and helpful. We quickly arrived at our room which was ready for our romantic weekend, champagne, flower petals, candles, chocolate covered strawberries all set and ready to go (call ahead to add these features). My wife added the optional breakfast in bed... the food was amazing!! Rooms were clean and looked newly refurbished. Comfortable pillow top bed, jacuzzi tub. Can't say enough on how pleased we were with this place. We will be back again for sure. All the best places to go and see in the Old St. Augustine village are walking distance.

I totally surprised my wife with three days at this enchanted Bed and Breakfast. No special occasion. A “just because I love her” trip. So I wanted everything to be perfect. The folks at The Bayfront Marin House made sure that everything was just perfect. It was an enchanted stay that brought my wife and I even closer to each other after 32 ½ years of marriage. The antique furniture and the jacuzzi was only topped by their Sweetheart package. The Carriage ride was the Pièce de résistance. We reluctantly left but even more in love than I thought possible. We will return to be pampered by our friends at the Bayfront Marin House.

If you're traveling to St. Augustine, FL then this is the place you want to stay. We checked out every B&B in town online before our trip. None could compare when we were in town and walking around. The Bayfront Marin House sits right across the street from the bay. You can sit on the porch and swing while watching the boats, the lighthouse, the drawbridge and, of course, people watching. It sits in a quieter area of town right beside another beautiful B&B, The Westcott. We had looked at many online and after arriving and seeing their locations, we were glad we chose The Bayfront Marin. We stayed in room 8, The Forrester Suite and it was very nice. We liked having the jacuzzi in the bathroom where it belongs! The bathroom was nice and had a separate room for the shower and toilet. The bedroom was nice and comfortable and you could look out the windows over the bay. The bed was also comfortable and that was a nice surprise as many times they are not! We also were shown room 2, Marie Antoinette. It's a beautiful room as well, with somewhat private porch with swing and couch to sit and overlook the bay. Breakfast was served where you choose and the time of your choice. We chose the gazebo because it was much cooler than the courtyard. The breakfasts were very delicious and the staff is so friendly and helpful. They really try to help you with anything you need. If we ever go back to St. Augustine, there is no other place we will stay. I have not stayed in a nicer B&B and I have stayed in several. Right now, it is VERY HOT in St. Augustine so beware. Also, they have been doing construction at the bridge and they are cleaning that up and the lions are in storage right now. Also, there are some excellent restaurants to try. The Raintree restaurant is wonderful and they will come and pick you up at the B&B and take you back. The trolleys are okay, they are not factual. They don't have all of their information right. The Oldest House is great and they have their facts right! You must see Flagler College - it's really beautiful and informative. Everyone in town is very nice. We also LOVED eating at Mango Mango's, its across the Bridge of Lyons at St. Augustine Beach. Very good - try the Yucca Fries! I hope you will go and have a good time.
