Christmas Time at Southern Wind

5 on January 20, 2016

We had a wonderful Christmas in St Augustine, and so glad that we picked Southern Wind to stay at. The location was perfect for every place we went. Our room The Rosita Room: was comfy, spacious and quiet. I would recommend all to stay!! One of our best trips so far. We packed a week full of things to do. Thanks Scott and Donna for sharing your home. Tammy & Rick from Illinois

Great Value

If you visit their website then you know exactly what you are getting. The rooms are just as advertised. The location was great. We walked to just about everything, except for the horse carriage ride we did for fun. One of my favorite memories was opening the balcony door and just listening to the horse carriages go by. The trots of the horses was priceless. I highly recommend this place and I have seen some of the other high priced b&b and can not understand why someone would want to spend more money for pretty much the same service.

Beauty, Convenience, and Hospitality

We love, love, loved our stay at the Southern Wind Inn! We stayed in the Crystal suite, a queen sized bed, a day bed, and a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom! Such a relaxing visit for our romantic summertime getaway! Owners were very helpful, hospitable, and excellent cooks!

Nice place to stay

We only had a quick stay but enjoyed ourselves. It's a convenient walk and the city is beautiful. The breakfast had a very nice variety of foods and the main course was yummy! We would stay here again.

Great Place!

Vaporized expectations

We stay at a local B&B (Windemere) here in Central Florida once and awhile to unwind. The proprietors of Southern Wind should go there to experience what customer service is all about. A bed and a breakfast do not a B&B make. Signed, Bummed on our 33rd anniversary.

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the inn. It was very relaxing and romantic. We enjoyed the shops so close by. We took a wonderful carriage ride. The breakfast was wonderful. The hosts were outstanding. We even bought a coffee mug and picture of the inn, to remember that special time. We plan on coming back soon. Hopefully our 5th anniversary.
