Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rod & Wanda, Just wanted to drop you a line to say that we had a wonderful stay in your condo at Margate Gardens . My parents and I found the accommodations and property to be exactly as advertised and everyone from the maintenance workers and gardeners (who worked tirelessly) to Natalie were very helpful and friendly. Please let your gardeners know that all our visitors enjoyed the beautifully landscaped grounds. Back in the 70s when it was a hotel my wife and I stayed at Margate, so I was familiar with the convenient location of this property. Your condo is fully equipped, very well decorated, and we were impressed to see that you took such care to ensure that just about everything was provided for in the unit. We were especially impressed with the internet connectivity which allowed us to use our magic jack to keep in touch with home. Thanks again and I hope we will have the opportunity to avail ourselves of your hospitality again in the near future.

MAGIC

  • 5 of 5

Once again three weeks were spent at Grand Hibiscus. The owners Rod and Wanda are so easy to deal with and so accommodating. The accommodation is spacious...perfect for friends or family. The breezes blowing through the condo are fabulous. The beds are super comfy which makes for perfect sleeps. The location couldn't be better ....directly across from the Boardwalk/ocean and our favorite restaurant Tapas. The Farmers Market is a short walk up the road across from the Bandstand at Art Splash. The little white vans, the blue or yellow buses will whisk you ALL over the island so a car rental is not necessary. Accra beach is a short walk away and 4 beach chairs are provided. Pebbles beach in Carlisle Bay is a lovely beach walk away. The Garrison is the UNESCO site and walkable and also houses Coffee Barbados on the George Washington house property. Snorkeling is good at the Coconut Court Beach and the Amaryllis Beach. The Margate pool and gardens are beautiful and peaceful in the evening so a joy to sit on the balcony embracing the view.

Thank you Rod and Wanda for sharing your terrific Barbadian home.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as described by Rod and Wanda and the pictures. The location is great too. It is close to the boardwalk and Accra Beach and several good restaurants are within easy walking distance. My wife and I have called Grand Hibiscus our home for five weeks and our son and his wife joined us for much of that time. The condo comfortably accommodated the four of us. We were truly sorry to leave! Margate Gardens is a delightful gated community with lovely grounds and friendly , helpful neighbours. Rod and Wanda are attentive owners who are good to deal with and go out of their way to please, as does Jamella, the on site property manager. If we have the opportunity to return to Barbados we'll be heading for Grand Hibiscus again,

Truly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for us. It was spacious and very clean. It had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were handy. Lots of linens and towels were nice. Sitting on the balcony in the morning facing the pool was beautiful. The grounds were very well kept. The location is awesome. Able to get anywhere very easily, really good restaurants close by. Rod and Wanda are super people and made our stay very welcoming and wonderful. The manager was a great help with any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this rental property. Truly enjoyed everything and hope to return in the near future. Shauna Cassie

Exceeded Expectations - Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

Travelling from the UK with a family of five for three weeks in Barbados carried high expectations and Margate Gardens did not disappoint. A lovely spacious condo with very generous facilities was absolutely ideal for all five of us .... highlights included the generous balcony to enjoy the unique island breeze (and a glass or two), a modest but perfectly formed pool for the kids to play, aircon in the bedrooms to cool down after a hard day's boogey-boarding, plenty of beach towels as well as boogey boards and beach chairs, the private secure facility including parking, wifi for the all important 5 ipads!, attended to gardens and polite friendly staff and ... and caring, supportive owners who provided support from start to finish in a timely, professional and attentive manner. It is no surprise that this property ticks all the boxes!
