Casa de Solana B&B is proud to offer its guests a more upscale package than is typical for St Augustine. The Stairway To Heaven package features all the bling one would expect in a premiere luxury package!
Online PR News – 02-January-2013 – St Augustine, FL – The structure at 21 Aviles Street may be the seventh oldest house in St. Augustine and located on the oldest street in town, but the staff brings nothing but fresh ideas and forward thinking when it comes to your experience at this bed and breakfast in St Augustine!
Casa de Solana B&B takes its name from the original owner, Don Manuel Lorenzo Solana, a member of one of the city’s first Spanish families. He was 23 years old when the British claimed St. Augustine in 1763 and was one of only eight men (all Mounted Dragoons of the Spanish Army) permitted to remain in St. Augustine after the British took over. He built a tabby house on the property that year and soon after married London-born Protestant Mary Mitchell (with whom he had 2 children). Not recognized by the Catholic Church, that marriage later dissipated. With his second wife, Menorcan Mary Mastres, he fathered 11 more Solanas! Their house was well known to offer haven to Native Americans, injured soldiers, and any traveler in need of respite. Despite the harshness of the times, the Solana Family did persevere, clinging to the love.
Today, Casa de Solana is a 10-room, full-service St Augustine bed and breakfast, with that halo of love and residual energy still abound! You’ll often be greeted by the smell of something fabulous going on in the kitchen (e.g., cinnamon raisin soufflé, spinach quiche, apple harvest pancakes, roasted potatoes). The dining room presents with gorgeous dark wood floors, intimate seating, and elegant place settings. Each room has been uniquely decorated by the owners. Jeffrey has an incredible eye for fabric projects. Mary Mitchell’s room is an excellent example of his work, but there is fashion flare and a room type to fit most everyone’s desire.
Casa’s Stairway To Heaven package invites guests to climb the stairway to their personal heaven. Select from one of three luxurious, second-floor rooms (Montejurra, Francesca, or Isabella), each with a king-sized bed, a double jetted Jacuzzi tub and shower, gas fireplace, mini fridge, and private balcony. Included in this upscale offer is an over-the-top fresh floral bouquet, a chocolate-dipped champagne bottle, and a small veggies and brie plate in guest room on arrival. Casa is the first St. Augustine bed and breakfast to offer the private, in-room, warm-bamboo fusion massages as part of this package. The icing on the cake, so to speak, is a horse-drawn carriage with guest pick-up at Casa’s front gate and front-door delivery to the famed Casa Monica Hotel’s 95 Cordova Restaurant where guests will enjoy a $200 credit!
