Garden by the Sea

Garden by the Sea
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.  The sun sets over “our” salt pond bird sanctuary every evening and the sun rises to the neighbor’s crowing roosters.   Garden by the Sea B&B is the place to relax,  refresh, and rejuvenate.  We are a 10 minute walk to town,  therefore a rental car is not a necessity.  The B&B is a 10 minute drive (by cab or car rental)  to the famous north shore beaches of St. John.  You will be served a delicious breakfast each morning on our tropically shaded veranda where you will be delighted by the bananaquit birds and geckos.  Your hosts have lived on St. John for many years and are very familiar with the island and the national park and are very willing to help plan your daily activities.  Or we can help plan your nap and reading times between meals.  Garden by the Sea is the perfect place for honeymooners, nature lovers, or those people who just simply need the perfect getaway.
Rendezvous by the Sea Villa

is a wonderful 3 bedroom  3½ bathroom villa perched on the water in the  Boatman Point  neighborhood on the southwest shore of St. John, USVI. The sunrise will wake you up every morning and if you’re lucky to be on island during a full moon, the moonrise is spectacular over Rendezvous Bay while eating a candlelit dinner on our screened veranda.  Rendezvous by the Sea is a convenient 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay but far enough away to feel like you’re away from it all.   Relax  in the pool and look down at the reefs below you.  You can actually see fish, turtles and stingrays from the pool deck – your own private aquarium!   Follow the steps down to the beach below us and on a calm day you can snorkel or swim in the late morning/early afternoon.  Return to the villa for a late lunch or early cocktails on the veranda.  The lush grounds around the villa are filled with local flora:  papaya trees, white and pink oleander, coconut palms, juniper and jasmine.  There are fun mosaics and eclectic artwork and prints throughout the inside and outside of the house.   This is a beach house at its finest!
