In November, 2018, Trip Advisor named St. Augustine as one of 15 super romantic getaways in Florida, “guaranteed to make the perfect romantic vacation for young couples, newlyweds, and longtime lovers alike.” They said that spending a day enjoying the sun and sand at St. Augustine Beach, dining and shopping on St. George Street, and a sunset cruise on the bay make St. Augustine the” perfect spot for a romantic Florida couple’s retreat.”
Casa de Salona Bed and Breakfast’s elegant setting in the heart of St. Augustine’s historic city creates the perfect ambiance for romance. Many of the city’s most popular attractions are within easy walking distance of the B&B. St. George Street is only a block away. Plaza de la Constitución is just a 3 minute walk, and Flagler College and the Villa Zorayda Museum are within 5 minutes.
The seventh-oldest house on the oldest street in St. Augustine, Casa de Solana’s historic architecture is combined with luxurious 21st century amenities. Guests enjoy a gourmet breakfast featuring local produce and a different hot entrée each morning. (Room service is available for an additional charge.) A social hour with wine and cheese welcomes couples back to the bed and breakfast each afternoon. Each of the 10 guest chambers has its own unique décor.
The four rooms below often are chosen for romantic stays:
- The elegant Montejurra Room, with its historic beam ceiling and canopy bed, is designed for romance. There’s an electric fireplace, spacious bathroom with two-person jetted tub and shower, plus a shared balcony overlooking Charlotte Street.
- The Segui Room, a favorite of newlywed guests, is perfect for any couple’s romantic getaway. It also features the dramatic beam ceiling, together with a tiled electric fireplace, cozy seating area, and two person whirlpool tub in the bath. Guests in the Segui Room have a private balcony entrance overlooking Charlotte Street.
- The Kirby Smith Room is another favorite for romance. Wedding couples who are staying at the inn often choose this room with its outdoor seating area overlooking the garden. Like the Segui Rooms, it offers a sitting area and king bed. The spacious bathroom has a whirlpool tub/shower. An in-room sitting area is provided with a small sofa and chairs in front of the armoire.
- The Isabella Room is perfect for any couple looking forward to a private getaway. Located in the inn’s de Palma House, its balcony provides views of the courtyard, garden, and main inn. The guest room features an electric fireplace, seating area at the foot of the king bed, and jetted tub.
All 10 guest rooms include amenities such as cotton velour robes, multiple bed pillows, flat screen televisions, complimentary WiFi, and beach towels. Most have mini-refrigerators, jetted tubs, and fireplaces. Our B&B is happy to add any of our à la carte Romance Extras for an even more memorable stay. Options include inn-house massages, flowers, sparking beverages, and more.
