    Historical Traveler Reviews Alexander Homestead Saint Augustine

    Very Nice B&B

    from

    The Alexander Homestead B&B is a great place to stay! We celebrate our anniversary each year by staying at a B&B - this year we chose Alexander Homestead. The "Picnic in the Park" package for a stay during the week gave us a discounted rate and gave us a chance to explore St. Augustine for a few days without feeling rushed. Bonnie's breakfasts were delicious and the picnic she prepared for us was nice too. All in all, we had a very nice stay and would highly recommend this B&B.

    Relaxing Atmosphere

    from

    There is no words to describe the incredible service Bonnie (the owner) and LaToya (head housekeeper) of Alexander Homestead gives to their customers. It's no wonder why she has such a large repeat customer base. It offers a homey atmosphere that makes you feel like you have escaped to a more relaxed bygone era. The house is beautifully and carefully decorated with lots of antiques to compliment the vintage charm of the house. The breakfast menu was a huge hit with everyone. Waking up each morning and walking out to the smell of something incredibly delicious cooking in the kitchen was the treat for the day. Alexander Homestead and St. Augustine together brings you the perfect combination for a truly enjoyable vacation spot to enjoy the escape of everyday life. The other couples that were at breakfast each morning shared the same experiences we did so that speaks volumes for Alexander Homestead. That kind of hospitality will keep bringing back more repeat customers just like us.

    Perfect Place to stay in St. Augustine!

    from

    I have never stayed at a B&B nor in downtown St. Augustine (I usually stay with friends in the suburbs) but this was the perfect weekend getaway, thanks to Bonnie. She welcomed my wife and I with full hospitality and a beautiful room with a porch. After dinner we sat on the porch drinking wine watching the beautiful St. Augustine night. The morning we were greeted at our door with fresh coffee followed by breakfast with other guests who were also very friendly. The breakfast was fantastic with Bonnie's home cooking. We did the usually tour of the cities landmarks. My wife was tired from the day so we returned and relaxed in our room and felt contempt with the relaxing surroundings. The next morning we checked out but while the stay was short it was the best getaway we ever had. I will recommend to all my friends. Living in a modern house in FL I rarely get the opportunity to stay in an old house and was like an old movie.

    The Best of The Best

I always come back to work more relaxed.You are always helpful with reservations and suggestions on things to do.I love to hear you tell how you got started with your B&B, and it's nice talking with other guest after breakfast,you meet such interesting people from everywhere.Keep up the good work, see you in October.A Very Relaxed Guest

    What's To Love? Everything!

    After many stays in St. Augustine at various hotels and bed & breakfasts we discovered the place that is a must-return, the Alexander Homestead Bed and Breakfast. Let's start with price. Bonnie has placed great prices on her rooms. Very fair. We stayed in a beautiful room on the second floor. The bed was so very comfortable with pillows to die for. There were two chairs, a dresser, antique writing desk, fireplace, and armoire with a safe enclosed. The porch with our room was enclosed with a screen so you could sit out any time day or night and not be driven crazy by insects. You could smoke if you chose to. There was a wicker rocker, chair, and a small table with two chairs. The bathroom was large with a wonderful tub (plenty large for two), shower, and was all white. The toiletries were all noted to have Alexander Homestead on them. Bedside are chocolates. At night she has cordials available outside the room which included creme de menthe. I am not sure what the other one was but it was delicious. It was nice to relax on the screened in porch with this lovely beverage before retiring. In the morning between 8:00 and 8:15 the coffee service appears outside your room (silver service). Your room has coffee cups and water glasses available for your use. There is a small refrigerator located outside your room which included various soft drinks, water, beer, and small bottles of red and white wine. Of course there are wine glasses available. I have never seen small bottles of wine before but it was a very nice touch. Breakfast proved to be a lively exchange. There was a very interesting lady from Palm Beach who told some of the best stories I have ever heard. It just happened that we were all from different areas in Florida. The food was of course a great topic of conversation. Bonnie has homemade granola to top your dish of fresh fruit and then a French Vanilla Sauce to add. There was orange juice, coffee, and tea if you wish. Saturday morning we had here homemade vegetable quiche, bacon, and Bonnie's secret biscuits. She would not give up this recipe but I have searched on line and think I can somewhat copy them but I am certain they won't be as good. Sunday included the granola, fruit, juice, link sausage, and the best french toast you will ever have. The recipes are on her web site. This could be topped with her homemade almond syrup. I must say this was all filling, fresh, and delicious. I had requested a cheese and fruit basket with a bottle of wine and this was set up and all was very good. She kindly made reservations for us at the Raintree Restaurant as well.

    Her home is lovingly decorated in Victoriana. Her parlor had music playing all the time very quietly.

    I would recommend staying at the Alexander Homestead. I hope to return again, the next time taking my mother who will absolutely love the home and the atmosphere. Thanks to Bonnie and her friendly staff for making this a weekend to remember.

    Warm and Cozy

    This past weekend we stayed at the Alexander Homestead Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine, Florida. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and we loved it. The website is excellent and very detailed. I knew just what to expect. All of the guests were very friendly. The location is quiet but just 3 short blocks to walk to the historic area near St. George St. Bonnie, was the innkeeper. As soon as we arrived she said she had been waiting for us. She showed us our room, which was so bright and had a private porch(Queen Anne's room). She also had beverages and cordials upstairs if we wanted any. The breakfast was all homemade. Delicious. We would return as well as recommend this place to our friends. Again the website gives full details about the house, what it has to offer and great pictures.

    My First Bed and Breakfast

    from

    As a surprise my husband arranged a stay at Alexander Homestead Bed and Breakfast. I was a little leery at first, we have never stayed at one before. Well if you want comfort, good food and a home away from home this is the place to go. There is nothing that we wanted for, comfy beds, robes, fresh bubble bath everyday. I am a smoker and what was great about this is the rooms have porches and our's was screened (in Florida nessary). If you are a smoker you will understand the importance of this feature. I would highly recommened the Alexander Homestead. And we will sure to be back.

    Back in Time

    from

    An enjoyable stay in an historic environment. Bonnie has meticulously dressed the house in Victoriana. The house compliments a visit to historic Saint Augustine. After an exhausting day exploring the beautiful town you will return to a cool deck or verandah, a welcome glass of chilled wine and have the benefit of observing a friendly community.

    Couldn't have asked for more!

    from

    This was our first experience in staying at a bed and breakfast, and we fear that Bonnie and her Asst Manager Latoya may have spoiled us for life! The home is BEAUTIFUL, a nice mix of antiques and romantic treasures. Our room was SUPERB with the most comfortable bed in the world (King Sized too!) and decorated like a room on a decorating magazine cover would look! The Jacuzzi came complete with candelabra, and the innkeeper skimps on NOTHING! Lots of Bath ammenities (all Branded Alexander Homestead) Lavender for the bath water, cordials in the room in pretty decanters, a mini-fridge stocked with soft drinks and beer and wine coolers. I could go on forever... Did I mention how we enjoyed the breakfast with HOMEMADE almond syrup? Everything was TERRIFIC and we can't wait to go Back!

    Loved this little house

    from

    My boyfriend surprised me with a long weekend in St. Augustine and we stayed at Alexander Homestead. What a great place!!! The owner is a very nice woman with a cute little doggie that greets you in the morning at your bedroom door. We had a balcony with chairs and it was beautiful to sit out there at night. Breakfast was plenty of homemade goodies and very nice comany. Would definitely go there again!

    ... Spain's interests. On September 8, 1565, with much pomp and circumstance and 600 voyagers cheering, Menéndez set foot on the shores of Florida. In honor of the saint whose feast day fell on the day he first sighted land, Menéndez named the colonial settlement St. Augustine. Menéndez quickly and diligently carried out his king's instructions. With brilliant military maneuvering and good fortune, he removed the French garrison and proceeded to consolidate Spain's authority ...

    This has been a fun few days, but it has come to an end and it is time to head home and back to the real world.

    I had my last day of "room service" breakfast for this trip and I like having people. Check out my breakfast. Not too shabby.

    We packed the car and said good-bye to Bob. We were hoping to see Bart's group this morning but they ...

We did some window shopping and Tricia and Trey went in search of the Oldest Schoolhouse and to see some of Old Saint Augustine.  It started to rain so we hot footed it back to the car and made it just as the skies opened up and it poured rain. Whew, dodged a bullet there. We decided to ride south on A1 to check it out. We got close to Palm Coast and turned around and headed ...

There were soooo many places but a small group of us went to a Italian called pizzalleys! Oh my god! Never had food like it. The pizza was insane & so massive!!!! I had crab cakes to start but it was a main course size so felt full from that before I had even tucked into my pizza. Was such a good ...

    This morning we went to the Fountain of Youth, which is a Spanish dig site. It was home to the first white settlement in America.

    We saw:
    1. A musket firing
    2. The planetarium (to show how early explorers navigated)
    3. A canon firing (it was loud)
    4. The Fountain of Youth spring (it tasted sulphuric)
