This was our first post-hurricane visit to St. John and our third stay at the Garden by the Sea. The island is ready and waiting for the return of more visitors and I cannot recommend Garden by the Sea any higher. Under the new management of Eileen and John Cullen, you can

There is something very special about this place you need to discover. I won’t say what I think it is because it’s different for each individual, but it’s a gem. My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days and loooooooved it. To start, we had a room with an indoor/outdoor

We stayed at this B&B for three days while visiting St. John and could not have been happier with it. The rooms are charming and islandesque, as well as very clean. The common area is really cozy but open air and it’s so relaxing to sit out there with a cocktail or a snack and

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
