A friend & I stayed here because we had a wedding to attend. Garden by the Sea (GBTS) is beautiful. John & Nancy are super happy & make sure you are as well. With a drink in my hand each evening and yummy, homemade breakfast each morning, who could ask for anything else. The place is very clean, the views... More

This was our second stay at Garden by the Sea, and it was as wonderful as the first. We really love this place. The rooms are nice. John and Nancy provide great service and a delicious breakfast in the morning. GBS is close to town so you can walk to dinner in the evening. St. John is an awesome place... More

We were on St. John for a family wedding and usually stay at a B & B when we travel, so decided to do so on the island, rather than a big resort. We were very happy with our choice! The Garden by the Sea was a wonderful experience for us. Our suite was super clean and well appointed. We... More

Wonderful stay in BEAUTIFUL St. John! Nancy and John are wonderful hosts, very helpful. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Our room was clean and spacious. The shower was the coolest I have ever seen. I will definitely stay here on a future visit to St. John and look forward to doing so!

Garden by the Sea was the most perfect spot for my vacation. After a cancellation of another booked vacation to Cabo due to the hurricane, I decided to revisit St John which is one my most favorite spots on earth! I booked pretty much last minute and had a wonderful experience from booking until the day I left. The rooms... More

Thank you for your great review of Garden by the Sea. And I would love to address the bed issue. I apologize if you felt it wasn't comfortable. We actually replaced that mattress the year before your visit. AND we replaced it with a fairly firm mattress. I guess that isn't your choice of mattress, I'm sorry. But we appreciate... More

My wife and I spent a great vacation at Garden by the Sea. Frank and Mickey were very helpful, from giving us great ideas of things to see and do, rides into town and to the beaches, great breakfasts every morning, and accurate and timely weather forecasts. They were a great source of local island information you would not have... More

Without a doubt this was so far my best B&B experience ever. Relaxing hospitality in short! From excellent communication, detailed directions, honesty, and compassion to carrying our bags to and from our room, sharing local knowledge, books of restaurant menu's, and most of all the most kind hearts ever!!!! AMAZING fresh breakfast every morning with meals that lovingly catered to... More

My fiancée and I chose Garden by the Sea based on its location and excellent reviews, and it still exceeded our expectations. Arriving at Garden by the Sea felt like coming home. Upon arrival we were met by Micky and Frank who were incredibly friendly and helpful. Frank carried our bags from the car to our room while Micky gave... More

My wife and I decided to book a spur of the moment trip to the Caribbean to celebrate the completion of her first semester of PA school (straight A's!). We had no idea what island we were going to visit, but luckily Delta had a very good deal on reward flights to St. Thomas, so off we booked! Once figuring... More
