We stayed at GBTS in the Garden Suite for five nights near the end of January. First, John and Nancy (owners) are both knowledgeable, articulate, and willing to share information. If you have a question do not hesitate! The location? Excellent. 5 minute walk to the heart of town where there are delicious restaurants and shops. Cleanliness? Also excellent. Not... More

We just returned from six nights at Garden By The Sea B&B. It is an idyllic place in a great location. We stayed in the Terrace View room and particularly enjoyed watching the sunsets from our second level porch overlooking the pond. John and Nancy are amazing hosts with a wealth of information about restaurants, beaches and things to do... More

We could not have selected a better place to stay! 1. Location: The location of this bed and breakfast is a short and picturesque walk to the restaurants in Cruz Bay. Since parking is a challenge in town, it is important to stay in a spot where you can leave your vehicle and walk to town. This B and B... More

I don't even know where to start. We had such an incredible experience with Nancy and John. We had a rough time getting there and when we arrived Nancy and John were up waiting for us and called and made us a reservation for a late dinner (and drove us there!!). We stayed in the Ginger room and I loved... More

We stayed in the Wild Ginger suite and were very comfortable and happy here. The hosts/owners, John and Nancy, were very helpful in recommending restaurants, activities and even arranging a jeep rental for us. They even drove us to town one morning so we wouldn’t be late for our tour. The breakfasts were hearty and delicious and it was nice... More

The place is charming, every single detail is sense tickling. The couple who runs the place is awesome, they are doing everything to make sure that you have an exceptional stay. They even have extra snorkeling stuff, beach chairs, water bottles, guide books, games, bug spray, toiletries, coolers, etc to borrow. We stayed in the garden suite. There's an open... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon this summer. We came during the off season, but Nancy and John made a way for us to come. They were so warm and welcoming, and served us DELICIOUS breakfast (even gluten-free for me) each morning on their deck overlooking palm trees and the water. Our room was very comfortable, and...

My husband and I stayed at Garden by the Sea for a portion of our honeymoon earlier this month. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, nor had we ever been to St. John. Nancy and John were more than accommodating to us. They provided us with more than enough towels, robes, toiletries, etc. They also allowed... More

My sister and I traveled to St. John for the first time and we were thrilled with our choice to stay at Garden by the Sea! Nancy and John were so very hospitable and made our stay stress-free. We stayed in the Terrace Room which was clean, spacious and the A/C kept us cool. They provided excellent recommendations for meals... More

Nancy and John are two amazing people! My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon in St. Johns and we couldn't be any happier with our accomodations. They were extremely helpful throughout our entire stay. They gave us tips like what beaches to visit, how to get there and where we can grab good food. Nancy even booked our sail... More
