“First Time, but not Going to be the Last”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

This is the first time we (my wife, my 9yr old child and myself) stayed at Alexander Homestead. Fantastic location (literally only two blocks away from the heart of St. Augustine); superb breakfast; and lovely room (we stayed in Sweet William). More than all this, what really pleased us was how friendly and helpful Bonnie and Terri were. We arrived late (later than 1900hrs which is stated as the last check-in time). But Bonnie had called me on the cell and told me where the key would be. She had complete and accurate instructions, and she even had listed several restaurants where we could have dinner on Christmas day night (when quite a few of the restaurants in St. Augustine were closed). A B&B that we would definitely use the next time when we are in beautiful St. Augustine.

Room Tip: We stayed at Sweet William. Small room (probably the smallest at Alexander Homestead), but perfect f...

We stayed at the Alexander Homestead for a Christmas weekend last year to enjoy the festivities in St. Augustine. We liked it so much we had to return this year. Chose the same weekend before Christmas Day and the same room, the Queen Anne. It was like returning to a friend's home. Bonnie and her staff are very nice. The home is beautifully decorated for Christmas. The huge tree in the old fashioned parlor is like a Christmas card. Breakfast is great and served on Christmas china in a Christmas decorated dining room. A wonderful way to experience an old fashioned Christmas - staying here at the Alexander and taking in all St. Augustine offers during the holidays. The location is close enough to easily walk downtown, but out of the hustle and bustle. The wonderful second floor front porch complete with swing makes the Queen Anne room extra inviting to us. We will return. Would not stay at a hotel after staying at the Alexander Homestead.

Room Tip: Choose one of the front rooms with the wonderful sitting porch on the second floor.

As usual, my wife and I had a wonderful time at the Alexander Homestead this past weekend. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and our room was spotlessly clean (as usual). We brought another couple along with us and we have no doubt that they will become "regulars", too.

Room Tip: Every room is excellent. Some have fireplaces and some have a balcony. It all boils down to what you...

Beautiful property. A few blocks away from the action. If you get a room with a fireplace, you may want to bring your own log - the ones we were provided refused to light, so that was a little disappointing. Breakfast was great. There is a cat that comes into the house. My husband is allergic and we did not know that ahead of time, but wish we had. Overall, it was a great experience and recommended if you don't mind being a bit off the beaten trail.

Room Tip: Ask where the room is in the house. Ours was right by the front door, so there was a lot of traffic...

For 21 years now we have been staying at the Alexander Homestead when we go to St. Augustine for a weekend getaway. Just love it there. Breakfast is absolutely great. Every room is really nice. Bonnie and Terri are the best.

My husband and I and best friends just returned from a weekend at the Alexander Homestead. We had a wonderful stay. Both of our rooms we fantastic and so very comfortable. We had two of the rooms upstairs and ample space. The beds were supper comfortable and the furnishings were charming. The breakfast was fantastic. The food, the company and the dining room was stunning and yet so inviting. We will make sure we return to the Alexander Homestead...oh and the location could't have been better.

Room Tip: Sweet William and Queen Ann

Wife and I returned to the Alexander Homestead as Bonnie had told us to come up after Thanksgiving to see the Holiday lights. We took our son Edyn with us. We had two rooms, the Victoriana and Queen Anns room. Bonnie made her usual great breakfasts the two mornings we were there. The B and B was decorated to the nines including a 10 foot xmas tree in the living room and other decorations all over. As usual there was complimentary coffee outside your door at 8 am and wine and brandy at night as well as a refrigerator full of sodas and water.

The lights of St Augustine were great but this B and B is great any time of the year. Our third stay.

Room Tip: A large family can get the private rooms over the garage. Check the website for each room's spec...
