Why is it I can clearly remember the floorplan of my grandma's house ...from 43 years ago, down to what she kept in each kitchen cupboard & the fact that the built in headboard held all of window screens......, but can't remember what I walked into the room to get?

Tuesday Tourist

Beachfront Bed & Breakfast - St. Augustine, Florida

What a wonderful place to stay! I read the reviews before we left, the majority of which were very good. As always there is someone that has to complain about something......., well we had absolutely NOTHING to complain about! We were to check in at the hotel next door, which we did with no problem at all. We found the bed & breakfast easily, it is just around the corner. After standing on the staircase admiring the beach view, we went inside to find out room. The common area upstairs was very welcoming! We found our room with no trouble at all. It was exactly as the pictures showed on their website, very charming with lots of character. The view from the window was amazing!

upstairs veranda...what a view!

Highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast! No complaints here, other than we could only spend two days, but that was due to our schedule. Breakfast was great both days - fresh fruit salad, french toast, sausage, orange juice & coffee the first day. Egg souffle with muffins & scones, fresh fruit salad, orange juice & coffee the second day. Both days we were asked if we would like seconds. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The room was amazing, we loved the furniture, lots of character! The bed was very comfortable, too! Even though we were told they were full, we never heard any of the other guests. We didn't have time to use them, but they also offer a great looking hot tub & large pool with plenty of deck chairs, even a large hammock between the palm trees!

Absolute Best Place to Stay in Sebring!

I found Banyan Bay Club through HomeAway 
It was a GREAT place to stay! We stayed in 13A which is a very spacious King villa. It consisted of a large living room, dining area, kitchen, spacious bedroom with king bed & bathroom. The kitchen was very well equipped, it even had a dishwasher! It was bright & airy with high ceilings & ceramic tile floors. They have other smaller units available, also. It is gated, so the only people around are ones that are supose to be there. We were there in the "off season" so to speak, right after the 12 hours of Sebring race. We will certainly stay there again!! Highly recommend! Eileen & Tricia answered all of my questions quickly & were very nice to deal with.
The view below was from the yard with my back to Lake Jackson.
