Bayfront Westcott House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 31 St. Augustine B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 March 2011

This is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The proprietors, Joy and Andrew, have gone to great lengths to make the house a home for guests. We stayed in the 'Loft' on the 3rd floor, it was elegant and comfortable -- with a great view of the water. The entire home is decorated beautifully with antiques. The breakfasts are unique, delicious and served on the porch or inside -- and the staff is most polite and gracious. We certainly plan to come back and visit. St. Augustine. Joy, Andrew and their staff are obviously knowledgeable about 'where to dine' -- every place they suggested was 100%.

Stayed here when we could not get into our regular hotel. We were not disappointed. The staff was kind and very helpful. Wanted to stay there this weekend but had to settle for the Comfort Suites as this wonderful inn on the bay was booked. Thanks so much to Andrew and Gene.

We stayed in Allison's Loft, which for the money, was not a bad room, but going to and from can be a little tricky with the narrow stairway and I did bump my head a few times.

We just recently returned from our first trip to St Augustine. I can't say enough good things about the Bayfront Westcott House. The owners and the staff are amazing! They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The breakfast is wonderful and the location is perfect! Such a great place to come "home" to at the end of a day of sightseeing. We loved everything about the Westcott House and the staff's hospitality is genuine! We can't wait to return.

My Fiancee and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. The price was great, the room was really nice, bed squooshy and uber comfy. the tub amazing (my man is 6'6" and he fit comfortably with me) showers huge! and the room was clean and near the attractions by flagler college, had great wrap around windows with a view of the bay. Could barely hear the other guests which made it feel like we were the only ones there in a private home which was fantastic! can't wait to come back!!

After extensive research on trip advisor and other websites, I chose Bayfront Westcott House and was far from disappointed with my decision. On the first day in town, I noticed all the other bed and breakfast places that I had seen online and none of them compared to the charm, beauty, and location of the Bayfront Westcott House. I have to say St Augustine is one of the most well preserved, historic,and beautiful places in the U.S. The town itself is just breathe taking. At night when there is less automobile traffic and just the occasional horse carriage, you can almost imagine yourself walking through the streets in the 17 and 1800's. As beautiful and as well preserved are most of the buildings and inns throughout St Augustine, the Bayfront Westcott House shines above the rest. It is a short walking distance to everything to do in the historic city and just across the street from the marina. It is just close enough to seem next door to all the excitement but just far enough to be lost in a romantic paradise filled with the most comfortable beds and incredible jacuzzi tubs. I can not say enough about the beauty and charm of this place.
The staff and owners of the Bayfront Westcott House are so nice and all seem to want to make you feel right at home. Well, a home where you are treated like kings and the rooms just seem to clean themselves in the blink of an eye while you are having some of the most tasteful and elegant breakfasts you can imagine. Everyone of the staff there worked with such pride and helpfulness that you would assume they were all part owners. No one was every in the way but was always there if you needed or wanted something. I would like to especially thank Jeanne who was always very sweet and helpful and always seemed to be there no matter the time of day or night. Also thank you to Angie, for the initial phone call that made the decision to stay at the Bayfront Westcott House for me. She described the place with such love and southern charm and even provided tips for other things to do that I knew that even if I could save a few dollars somewhere else it would not be worth it. My wife and I both never once regretted staying at the Bayfront Westcott House. Are only regret was that time could not stand still and our 5 days had to end. We highly recommend the Wescott House and hope to stay there again some day. We wish the owners and staff continued success.

Well, we barely know how to respond to that beyond-flattering review (other than perhaps you should consider travel writing as a career)! We especially appreciate your recognition of our staff by name. The experience we are able to give our guests hinges upon teamwork. We hold our staff to very high standards, they never cease to follow through, and it is so nice when they too receive formal recognition from a guest. We do hope that you will be able to stay at Bayfront Westcott House again. It sounds like a tall order to fill to make your next stay even better, but we are up for the challenge! Be well, and thank you again for this wonderful review!

Despite arriving a day early, Joy, Andrew and the staff made us instantly welcome.

Both rooms we stayed in were luxuriousy furnished and added to the pleasure of our stay.

We cannot praise the staff's service too highly.

Located on the bay with views towards the lighthouse and marina, it is conveniently placed for all attraction.

We had a great time and recommend the inn without reservation (no pun intended)!!

"Recommend the Inn without reservation." We surprisingly have not heard that one before. Love it! We might like to use that in our testimonals if you would permit! We were so glad we were able to accommodate your early arrival and so hope you will visit us again. Thank you for your kind words!

You all have one the best B&Bs we've been to. We went to Elizabeth Point on north end of Emilia Island considerated as one of the Best in the country, in the small category!
And another in Taos New Mexico, Inn on La Loma Plaza, also rated as one of the Best by many; and your place is right up there. The property is impeccable, the location the best, it allows quiet enjoyment of the Matanzas Bay, the full moon the view of the bridge, the charm of being in a really authentic "old Town" neighborhood. And all within a lovely couple of block walk to many of the best restaurants, historical things to see, and into the whole experience of St. Augustine without being trapped. The proprietors were helpful, professional and always available for a recommendation or smile.
