Then we went to the old fort, Castillo de San Marcos. This was built in 1695 to protect the town from pirate and other attacks. It was never captured by force. It was star shaped with walls constructed of limestone shell that wouldn't crack. And the walls were over 5m thick on the outside. It had a gun deck lined with canons and sentry posts and a mote.
... drove to the fort. It was a big building made out of stone. We went on top and it was a beautiful view but we got sent down because there was thunder and lightening. Then we walked and had a drink.
PS The fort was called Castillo de San Marcos and it's over 300 years ...
... br> We saw lions, tigers, leopards, lynx, wolves, hyenas, bobcats and a porcupine. One jaguar had had a good life with his owner and got left there while his owner went on holiday but he never came back so the jaguar suffers from depression. There were more stories like this. All these animals could be walked on a leash.
We weren't allowed to take photos because it would scare the animals.
CROSSING THE LINE
As we finally crossed the state line into Florida and pulled into the first rest stop, we were absolutely overwhelmed by the mass of people accumulated at the rest stop. The lot was full - of tourists. We couldn't imagine where they all came from. Never saw so many in one stop before.
AND THEN THE BRAKES FAILED
... for any objects ahead or to the left or right of us. That was it. Hmmm. Seemed easy enough. By 2am I found myself hanging over the port side vomiting. Sea sickness. Just a minor case but awful just the same. Anthony prepared a comfy possy in the fresh air - where I spent laying down, incapacitated for the remainder of that journey. This was my welcome and intro to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Our House of St. Augustine Saint Augustine
Great, Wow!, ... No, better than that, Fabulous!
David was an excellent host. The conversation was stimulating, the gourmet breakfasts were perfect, even the afternoon appetiser and wine were par excellence! The mattresses were terrific, wish I could bring the bed home with me, the Jacuzzi was perfectly romantic and soothing after the busy days of following David's recommendations. I have been to a lot of B& Bs, this was the best!
Best bed and breakfast in st augustine
I would recomend "Our House" to anyone visiting the St. Augustine area. Dave has created a warm and wonderful enviroment. His chef and piano skills are tops and he has created a great B&B without all the victorian overload (we thank you for that). The bed (i am sad to say) is more comfortable than my one at home and the rooms are beautifully decorated... so much attention to detail. This is a six star B&B on a scale where five stars would have been tops.
A Perfect Getaway from it all
Our House was exactly what we were looking for in a B&B. Tastefully decorated with a luxurious tub to soak in, I highly recommend Greehaven. Next time through St. Augustine I think we'll try Morningview to change things up. David is a great host that is forgiving of his guests when they forget things.
Quiet,comfortable and romantic
Dave Brezing is a gracious host his Breakfasts are wonderful. The room is very comfortable and like the rest of the house just beautiful.We are really happy that we chose "Our House" to celebrate our 20 year anniversary it was peaceful, romantic and quiet. we will return as soon as we can and we highly recommend staying there.
This was our first stay together in a B&B. We were very pleased with the service, the food, the atmosphere and the location. Dave is a marvelous host who also happens to be a fantastic cook and talented musician.
Our House is not a 'step back in time' but a 'leap into gracious living and serenity'. We hope to stay there again soon.
Thanks Dave for all the wonderful little touches you provided to make our stay memorable!!
It was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast where we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. We loved the whole experience. It was romantic, the rooms were beautiful, and we woke up to fresh coffee at our door every morning. We knew breakfast was ready when Dave, the host, was playing the piano. The food was incredible and the company was great. We felt like Royalty. I highly recommend it. It was first class all the way.
Thanks again, Juliette & Andy!
Cozy quiet very romantic
Went here for our anniversary and had a wonderful time!!! Lovely house and David was a great host. The B&B is a little off the tourist track which makes for a quiet respite, but it is right in the antiques district and walkable to the other tourist attactions. The rooms are lovely and you will soon feel like "Our House" is your house!!
Incredible! I love this place!
The perfect place to get away from it all. The house was charming and our room was beautiful, not to mention soooo comfortable. The entire home is tastefully decorated without all the doilies and flowery wallpaper I have come to expect at bed and breakfasts. It really did feel like home. The veranda would have been perfect for reading a book, but we could not make ourselves get out of the bed. I can not describe to you how wonderful the bed was!! Trust me, after the hours of shopping at all the antique store just around the corner, the bed beckons you to crawl beneath its soft sheets for a nap. And the breakfast was incredible--I can't stop thinking about that sweet potato pancake! Dave was charming and friendly, but intuitive to our desire for privacy. This is a wonderful place for a romantic weekend away from it all in a beautiful home.
Heaven on Earth
David Brezing's enchanting "escape from reality" was my first experience at a Bed & Breakfast and what a delightful one it was. He was an attentive and gracious host, catering to our every need. All the personal touches you could ever imagine were offered with the utmost attention to detail; from the soothing piano music he played for us in the morning to the delicious and beautifully presented multi-course gourmet breakfasts (yes, he's a marvelous chef, too) to the elegant ambience of each lavishly appointed room and so much more. There are larger lodgings in the area that offer an array of amenites, but in my opinion, they do not compare. Call me spoiled.
Thank you, David, for all of your talents and treating your guests to a little "heaven on earth".
Our House Inn of St. Augustine is a must! My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was amazing. The personal service is second to none and the attention you get from your housekeeper is amazing. We highly reccomend the visit to anyone coming to the St.
Augustine area - we will be back next year!
