“Great location, friendly staff, delicious breakfast!”
Reviewed 31 May 2011

I took my boyfriend on his first excursion to St. Augustine for his birthday. We stayed here based on the recommendation of a friend. So glad he told us about this place. This is my 4th visit to St. Augustine and the best yet! The staff was super welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent...much better than dinning out. You can eat breakfast in their gazebo, the front lawn or in the house. I recommend eating outside for the view alone. You are directly accross from the intracoastal. We stayed on the first floor which was very convenient, but they are pet friendly (1st floor rooms only) and we were kept up by a barking dog one night. They have a great Happy Hour from 5-7pm which makes for a nice break after sightseeing all day. When we come back to St. Augustine...which we will...we will definitely stay at the Bayfront Marin House.

Room Tip: If you are not into pets stay on the second floor.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay--thank you for the nice review! And we're so sorry that you were affected by a pet one night! Each of our guests traveling with pets signs a contract regarding the pet's behavior--one of the things it says is that if their pet barks and bothers another guest they must come and get the pet IMMEDIATELY (and if it doesn't stop, they must leave the inn). We wish you had called us so that we could have fixed this for you while you were here!! Just so you know for your next visit--our personal phone number is posted in every room and at the entrance to the inn--that's what we're here for!! We're glad that the rest of your stay was wonderful--please come back and see us again soon!!--Mike and Sandy and the whole BMH staff

The Bayfront Marin House is a gorgeous, quiet B&B located right on the bay in St. Augustine. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and sight-seeing attractions.

Our room featured a antique, very comfortable queen size bed, HDTV with DVD player, 2 person Jacuzzi tub, and pet friendly. This Inn was far nicer than any we have stayed at before that allowed pets. The staff made all of us even our dog feel welcome and at home.

They provide a welcome happy hour with plenty of finger foods with Beer, Wine, Sangria, tea and water. This is a nice touch when you are first arriving and assists to help in the decompression when first arriving on vacation. This is available each day from 5-7pm....

Brian and Claudia at the front desk were able to recommend everything from pet friendly restaurants to attractions. They even assisted us with reservations.

Our stay was short, but very pleasant; we hated leaving....
The B&B is beautifully and tastefully decorated - the breakfast is deliciously divine.....consisting of a warm choice and your choice of fresh fruit, toast, pastry, bagels and orange juice & coffee.

The staff makes you feel right at home - If anyone is looking for a B&B in St. Augustine, I highly recommend staying here!!!!! You will have the best of everything: a beautiful, cozy, clean place to stay as well as a fantastic staff who make you feel at home. You'll have to stay here to find out his unique features which make staying there so special.

We booked 8 rooms at the Marin Bayfront Inn for my daugher's wedding. Sandy, Mike and the staff couldn't have been sweeter. The inn is just wonderful in every way. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and the food is delicious. The courtyard carches such a wonderful breeze off the water and features the best view of a sunrise imaginable. There is no better place to stay in St. Augustine, and it is a terrific place to house out of town wedding guests. Thank you to the fabulous stafff for a great stay.

My wife and I just got back from a weeks stay. We were in St. Augustine to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Based on the other reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose the Bayfront Marin House....It exceeded every expectation that we had!

Check-in wen't smoothly, It took less than 5 minutes. We were personally escorted to our room (#14, the Governor White) by Emory and given a quick tour and orientation.

The room was elegantly appointed with antique furniture, HDTV with DVD player, 2 person Jacuzzi tub, plus a daybed. The balcony in front has a view of the sailboats in Matanzas Bay and part of the Bridge of Lions.

We had arrived just as happy hour was beginning. There was plenty of finger foods with Beer, Wine, Sangria (ask for the recipe!!!), tea and water. We took this opportunity to meet our fellow guests.

Emory and Brian at the front desk were able to recommend everything from the closest Target to the best beaches and restaurants. They can make any reservation you need them to.

Breakfast was fantastic!!!! Expect to be doted on by the ladies that take care of it, they make sure you don't want for anything and don't leave hungry.

Mike even came out several times during our stay and made sure all the guests were taken care of and thank us for our buisness!!!

You do have to park off-site in a reserved lot, but everything in the area is an easy walk or trolley ride away

Overall, you can't go wrong with a stay at the Bayfront Marin House. We will definitely be back!!!!!

I just arrived home from Afghanistan. My finance suprised me with a romantic stay in St. Augustine. We loved every minute of it. We loved it so much we upgraded to thier best room for an extra night. The staff was awesome! Brian and Emmery helped me with everything from tracking a lost stuffed animal in Kissimee to planning the perfect romantic evening. The rest of the staff was great too. Every morning we were greated like family. We enjoyed our morning conversations with our new friends over breakfast. We had a blast with our new friends over Happy Hour! The staff helped with every activity we wanted to do. Emmery arranged dinner reservations with transportation and arranged a romantic carriage ride for us. This was the best trip I have had in years. We loved it. I fell in love with my fiance all over again. I'm looking forward to staying with them again.
