What B&B's meant to be!!

3.8 on November 02, 2015

We had never been to St. Augustine and don’t normally do B&B’s. This changed our minds! Upon arrival, we entered into a lovely restored Victorian home. We were greeted warmly and offered refreshment by Michaele. Apparently she had purchased it a few years ago and has put a substantial amount of work into it to bring it up to its present condition. She was very helpful and knowledgeable, explaining in great detail things to do and see, and ways to get around. We stayed in the Platinum Room which was perfect with all the right touches. Both the first floor and the second floor have porches where we would sip our morning coffee while planning our day. The location was ideal, in that we could walk to everything in the Historic District easily. Breakfast every morning involved heavenly homemade dishes served in an impeccable setting. No details were missed. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Next time we need to stay longer. Michaele obviously enjoys her work and does it very well. Side Note: Rooms, Service & Cleanliness should have received 5 stars, but website wouldn't allow it?!?

St. Augustine Gem.

4.4 on December 17, 2013

The "cottage" is perfect for two couples or family wanting a little more privancy than offered at most B& B's. The new owners and staff are excellent. They made us feel right at home. The location is perfect, being a short walk to the center of St. Augustine. And it has complimentary, on-site parking! Something not all St. Augustine B&B's can offer. Breakfast was exceptional. Hot entree with fresh fruit and home made banana bread! We've stayed at numerous St. Augustine B&B's, and this is not only one of the best, it is also a good value! We will certainly visit again.

Awesome, Convenient and Accomodating

5 on December 06, 2013

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful home away from home to base my discovery of the quaint historic town of St Augustine. Arriving late in the evening from Australia, I was welcomed with a very comfortable bed and hot shower. Michaele was very helpful and able to whip up a dairy free / gluten free breakfast for me to indulge in before I enjoyed Gold's Tours - (highly reccomend) and the Flagler College Tour before venturing out to the fort. Carriage Way is a great location, short walking distance to everything and very accomodating. Highly Recommend.

Cottage Stay Oct. 2013 after the Johnson's sold the B&B

2.8 on November 11, 2013

This was our 5th stay at the Carriage Way B&B, but our first stay after The Johnson family sold the place. My sister and I were there last December and we decided to schedule a family get away for my mom's birthday. My husband and I live in Tampa, but the rest of my family flew in from Mississippi. There were 8 of us (my husband and me and our children -3 and 6, my sister and her 12 year old daugther, and my mom and dad.) The Johnson's booked with us, but prior to our arrival, Michaele (the new owner) emailed us and told us that she was the new owner and children are not allowed -even at the cottage, but she'd uphold the original agreement since I'd already put down a deposit. Upon our arrival, we were asked to pay up front. It was quite awkward since we were gathered in the foyer and fumbling around for money. Since It was a gift to my mom, we didn't want her to know the expense, but the way that it was...she tied to pay for it. We let that go without saying anything althought it was uncomfortable. The next morning, we were awakened at 8:10 am by someone coming into the cottage where we were sleeping on the fold out in the living room. Needless to say, it scared us to death! When we questioned the employee, we were advised that she came in to look in the storage closet for a shower seat for another guest in the main house. It was not there and she left our cottage room empty handed. We adivsed her to let Michaele know how displeased we were with that, but nothing was ever said to us. A couple of other minor issues also... Our next visit to St.Augustine will unfortunately not be at The Carriage Way since the Johnson's are no longer there. .

Wonderful time

4.6 on November 07, 2013

I came to town for a parent event at Flagler College -- only 2 short blocks away -- so Carriage Way was a perfect location for me. It is also close to so many restaurants, shops and other amusements. Michaele, the hostess, went out of her way to make my daughter and I feel at home from the minute we arrived. The breakfasts were varied and delicious and the room was clean and very comfortable. With nice touches like fresh baked cookies and cold beverages, it was nice to return "home" to Carriage Way at the end of a long day. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Great place to stay in the heart of St. Augustine

4.4 on November 07, 2013

My fiance and i stayed here for our anniversary in November of 2013. Friends of ours stayed here 9 years ago and highly recommended it. It was just as great as they had said. The staff was great, helpful and friendly. The accommodations were very home-y. The location was in the heart of the city, so we were able to stop back to our room whenever we wanted to throughout the day. Overall, we had a great weekend here!

Wonderful B&B Experience!

5 on October 30, 2013

We recently had a fabulous stay at Carriage Way. From the moment we entered this beautiful bed and breakfast, we felt at home. Michaele is an exceptional host. When we arrived, she gave us a map of St. Augustine and spent much time talking with us about places to see and things to do. She asked about our interests so that she could help us plan two days of sight seeing based upon what we like/like to do. Our room was comfy and cozy. Breakfasts were very good. Each evening, there were drinks and snacks provided for guests. The location is perfect... within walking distance of all attractions. If you are planning a trip to St. Augustine, you will want to stay at THIS bed and breakfast!

carriage way b &b

4.8 on October 16, 2013

The property was lovely and the service was outstanding. The only warning I would give to future guests is remember that this B & B is in the historic district right downtown. It can be loud at times due to street noise and passers by. Streetlights can be a downer depending on your room location.

My first stay at a B&B

4.8 on October 15, 2013

Only problem we had was that our room was roadside and was noisy late at night, lot of traffic.

Clean and Cozy

3.6 on October 14, 2013

Hubby and I spent a lovely night at the Carriage Way B & B. Located 2 blocks from the heart of the historic district, we were able to leave our car in the private lot and walked to all the action. After dinner we were glad to leave the noise behind us and sleep in a quiet room with adjoining bath. Be aware that all rooms have a private bath to use, but some have bathrooms down the hall (out of the room).
