Want a larger space downtown where you can safely stay with your family or friends? We’ve got the perfect private space for you! The Sanchez House is an authentic Spanish Colonial home, built by Jose Simeon Sanchez in 1790. Located on the bayfront, in the historic district, the building is adjacent to the Marin House.
You can rent a single suite, or rent both and enjoy the whole house. There are two suites in the Sanchez House: the Josephina Wedding Suite (2nd floor) and the Jose Simeon Suite (1st floor).
The best space may be outside! The second floor has a 35-foot long porch overlooking the Matanzas Bay. You have access to the walled courtyard, as well as the front lawn. Bring your bocci set!
If you’re thinking that the Sanchez House would be perfect for a small party, or a wedding—you’re right! We host weddings up to 60 people, and can provide on-site catering as well as a perfect backdrop for the ceremony. When you book the venue for a party of more than 10 people, the rooms can not be used as overnight accommodations. The city required special zoning for this historic house, which includes its use as EITHER overnight accommodations, OR an event venue. Guests who use the Sanchez House as an event venue can conveniently stay at the Bayfront Marin House right next door.
All events (even small get-togethers under 10 people) must be coordinated with our wedding planner, and will require additional fees. Give us a call at (904)824-4301 to plan your special event!
You will love this two-bedroom, two-story building, with lots of the home’s original charm. From the exposed ceiling beams to the historic fireplace mantels, you will feel like you stepped back into a simpler time. Amenities include:
- 2 King Bedrooms
- 2 Master Baths
- Full Kitchen
