Delightful ocean front guest house. Very clean and well kept, close to restaurants and grocery stores. Betty and staff very friendly, and a non smoking facility. Looking for a quiet relaxing holiday this is a great place.

We spend two weeks at this guest house every November. We love Betty and her staff. They are very friendly and attentive to our needs. The guest house is located on the beach in Simpson Bay. The beach is beautiful, clean and quiet. Services and restaurants are within walking distance. Evening socials provide an opportunity for guests to interact and... More

We would like to express what a wonderful vacation we had during our Nov 2013 stay at the Horny Toad Guest House. Everything was so relaxing, we felt like we have our own private beach. The guest house owner Mrs Flynn is the best, she will do everything to make her guests happy and comfortable. The two maids Gloria and... More

Very clean and great service. Can't beat the relaxation factor of stressfree vacationing. Send them your grocery list and they will stock your favorites upon arrival. The friendly staff (Gloria and Cherry) are always a pleasure. The "social" sunsets are a nice way to get to know the other guests and build long term friendships. Simple and basic the way... More

I spent several days with a group of friends, just prior to boarding a lovely sailing ship (Sagitta). My roomie and I had a ground floor room looking right out to the beach and the room was perfect. We had a comfy bed, little kitchenette, and interesting bathroom. Our hostess, Cherry, was amazing! She was more than an innkeeper, she... More

Great place right on the beach kept clean and sparkling by friendly Julie while her lovely sister Cherri keeps everything else together with a big smile. All rooms are different but well furnished full kitchen and en suite. Communal BBQ area very comfortable.

I just returned from two stays at Horny Toad Guesthouse – five nights before and one night after sailing S/V Sagitta (Island Windjammers) out of Philipsburg for our 15th Annual Jammerfest celebration. Both stays were fantastic! Before sailing our group of 15 took over Horny Toad, booking all 8 rooms. The property exceeded our expectations in every way! First off,... More

We stayed there in late June in unit #7, an end unit on the ground floor. The unit is very large with a separate bedroom. The unit had a full kitchen, which we only used a bit, but it was good to be able to keep items cold in the refrigerator and make coffee and tea. The kitchen is well... More

We stayed here in May 2013 for 10 days, this was our 5th time there and had an awesome and very relaxing time. The unit was very spacious with a full kitchen and separate bedroom. We love the idea that we are right on the beach. Several restaurants nearby that you can even walk to if you want the exercise.... More
