Directions to Bayfront Marin House During King Street Construction

St. Augustine is currently working on a drainage project on King Street, directly at the base of the Bridge of Lions. The project has closed Avenida Menendez to the south, so our inn is not accessible from Avenida Menendez. Construction is due to be finished at the end of October, but that could be extended because city archeologists found an old fishing boat from the 1900s underneath the road. That’s one of the joys of living in the Oldest City in the Country! You can see the project area to the right.

Don’t worry–there is always a way! See below for directions to the inn, as well as our apartment and the Aviles Street Cottage. And if you still have problems, just call us at 904-824-4301–we’re happy to walk you through it!

How to Get to the Bayfront Marin House:

If you’re coming from Route 1, turn onto King Street as usual. Instead of going into town, you will take a RIGHT at the second light, which will put you on Riberia Street. (It is the street between the mini car rentals and 1-2-3 Burger House).

Once on Riberia Street, take a LEFT onto Bridge Street. (It is past the distillery).

Follow Bridge Street to the water. This brings you back onto Avenida Menendez, below the construction.

Take a RIGHT onto Avenida Menendez, and pull into our loading zone on the right. It is marked with slanted lines. Park there and unload your bags for the main inn (room numbers 1-17), or the Sanchez House (room numbers 18 and 19).

A parking pass with directions to your parking space will be in your room.

If you are visiting the inn from the Beachcomber Cottages–Finding Our Parking Lot:

Take the Usina Bridge west (away from Vilano Beach).

At the roundabout, get into the middle lane. Take a LEFT at the light, and then a RIGHT onto Carlos Avenue. Take a LEFT onto Route 1 North. From Route 1, take a LEFT onto King Street.
