Garden by the Sea B&B is a quaint colorful Caribbean home with gingerbread trim nestled in lush gardens with coconut and banana trees; nesting birds, iguanas, and peacocks. We are located in Estate Contant and Enighed – a neighborhood just a short walk to Cruz Bay and 1 block from Frank Bay Beach. We offer three private rooms ,each with its own personality , all with individual air-conditioning and bathrooms . Our beautiful outdoor living room is for all to enjoy whether reading a book, listening to music or just relaxing with a sunset cocktail. Every morning, wake up to a full hot homemade breakfast served on our tropical Terrace, surrounded by nature . Once your belly is full, head off for a day full of adventure. We lend beach bags, chairs , snorkel equipment and towels along with coolers and Metal water bottles for your convenience. After a long day of sun and fun, enjoy a good nights sleep in our cozy beds and make Garden by the Sea your carribean home away from home!
