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

We just returned from our honeymoon in St. John, USVI. We stayed at a B&B, Garden By the Sea and loved everything about the place. It was walking distance to town and some beaches. The view was spectacular and the ambiance was amazing. We were in a true paradise. We stayed on the top floor called the terrace view and... More

Our first trip to St. John would not have been the same if we had not stayed in Garden by the Sea. The hospitality and professionalism shown by Frank and Mickey helped us in knowing where to snorkel, hike and take the jeep. The day always started with fresh coffee, weather updates, friendly guests, hummingbirds and iguanas, beautiful breakfasts and... More

The garden shower was my favorite! It was so nice taking a shower in the beautiful garden listening to all the nature sounds. I... More

We just returned from a lovely and rejuvenating time on St. John, and Garden by the Sea did not disappoint. When we were there celebrating our honeymoon 13 years ago, we thought our accommodations could not have been any better. BUT, alas, they were! The added air conditioning and WiFi were a definite plus, but my oh my, what wonderful... More

I have never stayed anywhere so accommodating. Frank and Mickey were excellent hosts that went the extra mile to help us plan our days. They would ask what we were interested in doing, update us on weather and water conditions, give us tips on where to eat, who to contact for a jeep rental, what routes to take, etc. They... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Garden by the Sea B&B is the quintessential Caribbean home: bright, colorful walls; local art and paintings; gingerbread trim; lush gardens with coconut and banana trees; & nesting birds, iguanas, and peacocks. We are located in the heart of Estate Contant and Enighed – a funky little neighborhood within walking distance of Cruz Bay and 1 ½ blocks from Frank Bay Beach. Your hosts have lived on St. John for over 12 years and are very familiar with the island and the national park and are very willing to help plan your daily activities. ... more   less
