It is our last day in paradise today. Spent eight incredible days here at Garden by the Sea. Our hosts Frank and Mickey went out of their way every day to make sure their guests had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. The B&B overlooks a salt pond just south of Cruz Bay.... More

We just recently returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation on St. John, staying at Garden by the Sea B&B. Frank met us as we stepped off the cab with a very warm welcome! We were sold from that point, however it only got better! Frank oriented us to our home away from home and drove us downtown to... More

We spent 4 nights at Garden by the Sea and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in St. John to attend a family wedding and had the opportunity to see not only our choice of lodging but also that of other family members who chose to stay closer to the center of town. We were so glad we that we... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and were thoroughly impressed. Lovely rooms, great hosts, delicious home-cooked breakfast, and a getaway atmosphere. The half-indoor half-outdoor showers were fabulous, and all told, this is the best value you'll find on St. John. The only downside is the distance from Cruz Bay. The owners are happy to drive you when... More

The four of us thoroughly enjoyed staying here because of the hosts, Nancy and John, and great food. The hosts were very helpful in obtaining ideas for sight seeing as well as making reservations. They were very pleasant to talk with. The B&B is showing its age and is "tired". The room a/c units are noisy and inefficient. The outside... More

I have been to St. John over a dozen times, and until I found this place, I rarely stayed at the same place twice. I liked moving around and experiencing different locales. During my last three visits, my wife and I have come back to Garden by the Sea and will continue to do so because of the atmosphere, the... More

What can I say about Garden by the Sea except fantastic! John and Nancy made us feel right at home. The room was tastefully decorated with items from local artists and windchimes Nancy makes herself. We stayed in the Wild Ginger room. It was clean and comfortable. Loved the open air shower! Nancy's breakfasts were unforgettable. Nancy was kind enough... More

My boyfriend and I spent a week over Christmas at Garden by The Sea. I really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it! Nancy and John have perfected hospitality! They are helpful planning what beaches/ activities/restaurants to go to without being intrusive. Breakfast is prepared every morning which includes smoothies, fresh fruit and switches between something savory and... More

This is our second visit to Garden by the Sea. John & Nancy are lovely and helpful hosts. Nancy makes a delicious breakfast (don't miss the smoothies) and John spots the birds and iguanas for us. We don't rent a car but walking into town, although hilly, is no problem. Working out the logistics is part of what the hosts... More

My husband and I recently stayed for five nights in the Terrace View room. The room was lovely and spacious and the private balcony had a gorgeous view. John and Nancy are very hands on owners and are obviously very knowledgeable about the island, however, they were also very interested in our opinions on the places we went to. Breakfast... More
