Tucked away on one of St. Augustine's intriguing little side streets, the Alexander Homestead is separated from the buzz of the historic district, but close enough to get there by foot when you want to. An immaculate, six-room B&B, the Alexander Homestead, in all its Victorian glory, is the real deal. Owner Bonnie is on-hand to make sure all is well inside this bucolic little world that dates back to the 1800s. W hile the building may be historic, it is by no means ancient or outdated, fusing fabulously to the modern world with creature comforts like surprisingly large bathrooms with whirlpool tubs or rain showers. Each room  (in keeping with the history of the era from which the building dates, they're referred to as "bedchambers") has its own distinct personality. I highly recommend those in the front of the house, which have porches overlooking the property's yard. For even more privacy, check into the Hideaway Suite, which is just that, over the garage with its own private entrance. The Hideaway Suite is also the only accommodation that allows (and is big enough for) children. Homemade breakfast, fresh-brewed coffee every morning, and a communal fridge with complimentary water, sodas, and red and white wine are just added bonuses. Ask Bonnie for recommendations on area sites and tours and her insider tips. Weekends have two-night minimum stays in each room, while major holidays may require up to a three-night stay in each room. Small dogs are permitted in certain rooms, with crate only.
