This is one of the few pet friendly places on St John. The owner was super friendly, knowledgeable about the island, and fun to be around. The environment is amazingly put together to induce comfort and relaxation. The rooms are spread out to offer privacy in the ambiance of para

My husband and I stayed at Garden by the Sea for 4 nights this month. We were greeted by Eileen and John who treated us like VIPs. The room and amazing shower were perfect along with the great homemade breakfast. The views from their deck were picture perfect. The best part is th

Hello I am very interested in the b&b tried to email you not sure if you got it, as never got a response. Was wondering how far are you from ferry dock? Is it within walking distance? I've read a few reviews one of the cons was you are completely closed in September is that true? I'm planning a trip in upcoming years not this year and want to book way in advance since you only have a few rooms. Thank you.
Hello Kim... sorry for the tardy responce... We are walking distance to the ferry/ town.. We’re new owners. The old owners closed every sept, and after what went on this past sept, we may close as well, still up in the air! You can call us at 340-779-4731 or email us We hope to see you soon!

I am only interested in Saturday Aug 26, 2017. Is there any availability and what is the cost? Your reviews sound wonderful. I am meeting up with family on Sunday so can only stay the one night. Also, do you have TV, refrigerator in the room ? Thank you, Tina W
There are no TVs in the rooms or common room. There is a refrigerator shelf for each of the three rooms available for your use in the common room. Hope this helps!

Is the B&B walking distance to any beaches such as honeymoon? Thanks!
Good Morning, thanks for the inquiry. We are 1 block from Frank Bay beach, which is a great snorkeling spot, nice sandy beach. BUT it is a rocky entry into the water. As far as honeymoon, ti's; about a 45 minute walk from the B&b to honeymoon and Salomon beaches. So pretty easy walk, a couple hills, but nothing too major. The B&B is an easy 10 minute walk to town. And from town you can walk to Honeymoon or grab a cab to some of the other north shore beaches that are farther away. THANKS for the inquiry. Go to our web site for more info Gardenbythesea. Thanks, Nancy
