Our Location

We are in the ideal location for discovering the city's wonderful restaurants, shops, and attractions. The Hemingway House bed and breakfast is one historic house away from the Matanzas bay front. And we are 1050 feet from the historic fort, Castillo de San Marcos and just 600 feet to the Bridge of Lions.

If you are flying into Jacksonville (to our north 50 miles) or, Daytona (to our south 50 miles) or, St. Augustine/St. Johns County Airport (SGJ) (10 minutes) into St. Augustine, we suggest using an airport shuttle service. (Airport Shuttle St Augustine, Inc. 904-825-0004 OR Airport Express of St Augustine 904-824-9400)  We do so because we are in a 'park-in and forget-it' location and you will not need a car (except to get to beaches). But rental cars are available at all these airports.
