Excellent B&B. Bonnie made you feel very welcome and at home, nothing too much trouble. Great breakfasts with home made food -- lovely. We had the "Blue Room" which was just as described. It was more like a suite with comfortable sofa in your own vestibule. Bedroom with very comfortable bed, which was very welcome after some full days wandering around St. Augustine. We also had our own private back entrance to our room so there was no need to disturb the rest of the house.
We first visited St. Augustine a year ago, just on a flying one day visit. After seeing what a lovely historical place it is we promised ourselves when returning to Florida this year we would do it more justice and stay for about 3 days. We bought the 3 day pass on the old town hop-on/hop-off trolley tours and off we went. A must-do visit is the Flagler College which was once a luxury hotel (how lucky the students are as much of the original features have been kept). Also included in our ticket was a free beach bus shuttle service which took you to Anastasia Island where you can visit the old lighthouse (219 steps up and 219 steps down!!). Also Alligator farm is over there, which is worth a visit. It is not a farm for the "farming" of Alligators but a sanctuary for Crocadillia plus a few other animals and a bird reserve.
All in all a lovely town and we would thoroughly recommend Alexander Homestead as a lovely place to stay and which is very conveniently placed for everything in the town.
- Also Known As:
- Alexander Homestead Saint Augustine, Florida
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Entering the Alexander Homestead through the picturesque front porch from the garden walkway you can hear strains of classical music and spy a small book of Emily Dickinson's poetry in the formal living room - rich with antiques and romance. This is a perfectly appointed inn, with five of the most inviting and romantic bedrooms that hint of lavender sachets and pale hues of vintage opulence. You'll return time and again to the Alexander Homestead! ... more less
