“Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2011

I can't rave enough about this B&B! Our Burgess room was gorgeous, comfortable and elegant. Some B&Bs feel old and not quite clean. This one was beautifully decorated to give the antique feel, while having clean new bathroom with Jacuzzi, bathrobes, etc. like the finest hotels. Top that off with a waterfront location on the bay and friendly and helpful service by everyone we met, from the owner, Mike, the front desk to Emery, Brian and all the servers (Oh, I forgot to mention the gourmet breakfasts, home baked cheesecake and wines for happy hour). Need I say more. I loved St. Augustine and staying at Bayfront Marin House made our visit very special. We'll be back and have already recommended it to friends. Sandy & Harold

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are glad that your time with us was memorable. I think you were one of the first ones to try our new cheesecake recipe--you'll be happy to know it's earned a spot on the rotation!! We look forward to seeing you both again soon. --Mike and Sandy and the BMH Family

Beautifully, victorian decorated rooms with luxuries like jacuzzi tubs and the best towels on the planet. It overlooks the waterfront, breakfast was delicious. Quaint, cozy and romantic and only a short 5 minute walking distance to main downtown.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! And we're laughing about your mention of the towels...we bought 10 samples, and tried them all--these were far and away the best! We do that with everything at the inn...it's great to hear that you appreciated the extra effort!!! Please come back and see us again soon! Mike and Sandy

My husband and I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast with two friends. We had a great time. From the excellent, friendly service to the great breakfast everything about our stay was great. The view was so pretty and the rooms were great. I would highly recommend staying here.

This was the last of several stops on our first vacation in Florida (we live in White Stone, Virginia). The Marin House Inn is in a fabulous location on the waterfront in the beautiful historic district of St. Augustine, a ten minute drive from great beaches. The old historic building has small unique distinctive rooms elegantly furnished. Exterior balconies are lavishly furnished for lounging. The staff are exceptionally friendly, interesting, and accommodating. Happy hour every day provides hors d'oeuvres, beer, wine and sangria (red.and white!) at no additional cost. The complementary breakfast is very good and made to order and served inside or in the courtyard (or in your room for an added charge). There's a hot dish each morning in addition to fruit, breads and spreads, coffee, tea, juice, etc. If you want to experience old St. Augustine in comfortable style at a reasonable price, this is your place. And no, we were not compensated for this review! The place really is this good.

We stay in the Marie Antoinette at Bayfront Marin House twice a year and we love every minute of it. We are always treated like family. Everything about the place is top notch. Much better view that any other inn in the area. Walking distance from almost everything. Great food. Friendly staff. =)

On a scale of 1 to 10 --this B&B gets a 10 rating from me! Location, location, location---The view was outstanding! This inn is right across from the water! I walked to shops and restaurants and the bay is RIGHT there outside my window and door! The room was very comfortable. I enjoyed the high, comfy bed with lovely bed linens. The room was tastefully decorated but not overdone. ( I have stayed in some B&B's where there wasn't an empty space to put my stuff.) This was just right. Not cluttered. The whirlpool tub was a welcome added treat--as was the fireplace! The furniture and wood floors were beautiful.
The Inn-Keeper even drove me to my meeting because it was raining!
Details were extra special----the garden, gazebo, porches, flowers in the lobby, coffee, --- were all exceptional. The breakfast was the best I have ever had at a B&B. Special diet needs were accomodated perfectly. Friendly staff! Dear Inn Keepers--- I had a lovely time but it was too short! Thank you for everything you do to make your guests feel special. I will be back with a friend and I will stay longer next time! Connie Ruth
