Best in St. Augustine

Casa De Suenos is truly a gem of a bed and breakfast. There are only a few rooms which adds to the quaint ambience. The staff is mindful of all your needs and always pleases. The close proximity to shopping makes for a perfect stay.


Great January Getaway

We enjoyed our stay. Were pleasantly surprised by the offer of the trolley ride to see the Night of Lights. The staff was very gracious and helped to make our stay very special. We will definitely be returning for another visit.

Would recommend this to anyone. We had a great stay and met other very nice guests. Convient location, parked our car when we arrived, walked around town and next time we used our car was to leave for home. Comfortable room, quiet, got a great nights sleep.


Great place to stay

This was our first visit to Casa De Suenos, and it won't be our last. The house is lovely, as was our room. Everything decorated for the holidays, and with breakfast, social hour & dessert included, we really got our moneys worth. Everyone was very nice and made us feel at home. I highly recommend staying at Casa De Suenos whenever you visit St. Augustine!


Wonderful stay

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Excellent accommodations, friendly staff, especially Stacy. Great breakfast, and happy hour and dessert were nice touches. The amenities available at the sister property, St. Francis Inn, were a bonus.


First Anniversary Trip

3.8 on November 30, 2016

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary in St. Augustine and stayed at Casa De Suenos. We had a lovely time! The food was great and the amenities were just what we wanted. No need to drive anywhere for it's in the heart of St. Augustine. The only time we drove was when we to visit the Fountain of Youth Park and visit the outlets. I would highly recommend staying here!


GREAT LOCATION IN COMFORTABE ACCOMADATIONS

4.8 on October 01, 2016

Overall Casa De Suenos more than exceeded my expectations! It was my first experience staying in a B&B and I honestly didn't know what to expect. I had fears that it would be similar to staying with my grandma as a child. You know, weird odors, dusty old furniture, sharing the bathroom with my crazy aunt! But happily none of these things occurred. The accommodations were very comfortable, the food very good. Being a perfectionist, I would need to add that there were a few things that did bother me a little. The room was advertised as having a Juliet Balcony yet upon my inspection I noticed that the door and windows were nailed shut. Also the glass was frosted which for a person with a touch of claustrophobia caused me a little discomfort. I imagined that I could possibly perish if a fire were to occur! Another thing that was a little uncomfortable for me was that the "Innkeepers" did not stay in the house in the evening. They left at 9PM and guests were given a phone number to call in an emergency. I was staying there alone so it felt odd that I was in a house full of strangers. I would probably not stay in an Inn that did this in the future. My only other minor complaint is that there was no fresh fruit for breakfast on my second day. Being a weight watcher, I tasted the delicious quiche and oatmeal but I would have liked to fill up on some fruit.The Innkeepers were lovely and very helpful in giving directions etc...
