B&Bs are ideal for regular romantic getaways, but they are also perfect spots for weddings and elopements. Below is a review from a couple who got eloped at Casa Grandview, a BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection property located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The renovated 1925 Mediterranean Revival house has five luxurious guestrooms and suites, plus 12 cottages and art deco cabana suites. The inn has a tropical but modern feel.
This perfect review is from an elopement and stay in April 2011.
I'm not sure which was the better of two EXCELLENT decisions: to elope, or to elope to Casa Grandview! We are inexperienced travelers, have incredibly tight work schedules, and had only a couple of weeks to make all the arrangements. After narrowing down our destination to South Florida (we're having a cold snowy spring in Wisconsin and we wanted OUT!), we decided to search for the highest rated places, as well as something quiet and maybe a bit different..It seemed too good to be true, but it's ALL TRUE! Not only did the proprietors, Cheryl and Kirk, take care of us as promised in the website, they went the extra miles for us regarding local help with wedding hair, photography, even the officiant! We stayed in Sundance North and it was perfect in all ways. I lived for many years in Santa Barbara and this bungalow brought back memories; and we are renovating a 1920 California Craftsman at present so it was even MORE fun to spend a few days where everything was done to the last detail in similar architecture. Scrumptious breakfasts on the main house patio lined with homegrown culinary herbs (hot-from-oven croissant and lobster omelet our last day there), gorgeous pools with hot Jacuzzi too, effortless gracious atmosphere inside and out, just peace and quiet and romance and rest. The landscaping makes each house seem a world unto itself. My new brother-in-law visited us there one evening; he's a professional landscaper in Palm Beach Gardens and he was just floored by the quality and design of the grounds. "Come as a guest, leave as a friend" is the TRUTH! Hard to put into words how exceptional it was.
