If your looking for wonderful hospitality and the most comfortable bed and breakfast, On The Bay is your choice. Located yards from a beautiful and empty beach, the sunsets are a photographers dream. You get a modern and clean room with an incredible breakfast, that you will never get
at any restaurant. Trevor and Ingrid are excellent hosts who will help give you some great info for touring the "island". I have stayed at around ten B&Bs and On The Bay was the best of them all. I'm looking forward to another trip this year to enjoy the island.

What can I say. My son and I stayed here one night. Fantastic location, right by the beach, 35 minutes from the ferry. Clean room, good beds (my son is 6'5"), great hospitality and an awesome breakfast for two men who love a hearty breakfast. All for a very reasonable price.

Ingrid and Trevor provide a very welcoming experience. Clean comfortable room, tasty breakfast. Ingrids knowledge of places and activities is outstanding, she has provided us with numerous ideas of exploration and of the culture of the island that we just have to keep coming back, there is always more to see. Of course we will be staying at On the Bay B&B each time we come back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable but the preference is the Providence room.
