Quiet, clean, comfortable, convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week and loved this apartment in a quiet low rise condo development with a smallish swimming pool that is great for cooling off at the end of the day or a wake-up swim. The property is as it described - two large air conditioned bedrooms that sleep 2 people each, 2 bathrooms (1 with a shower and 1 with shower/bath), fully equipped kitchen with enough pots and pans to cook almost anything, plenty of utensils and silverware and dishes. The location is ideal - right on the Hastings Main Road (hwy 7) across the street from Tapas Restaurant and immediately west of Lanterns Mall. There are many restaurants and fast food shops, mini-marts, souvenir shops and even clothing stores within a 5-10 minute walk. The beach is 2 minute walk but if you want to bathe it is 5-10 walk on a sandy beach either east or west from the property. Even though the property is on the main road, this unit is located at the back of the development and is very quiet with virtually no road noise. The unit also comes with good wi-fi as well as a smart-TV with way too many channels. We agreed that if/when we return to Barbados we would rent this unit again.

Relaxing vacation in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for a stay in Barbados. We were one-half block from the beach and a beautiful boardwalk that stretched along the beach. Alexis was terrific in every aspect of our planning, indeed in suggesting this location over another we were considering because we had our 18-month old granddaughter with us, and this ground level apartment was more suitable for a toddler. The apartment has beautiful gated grounds and a pool where we spent much of our time. Alexis was very easy to work with; I would highly recommend the Margate Gardens for your stay in Barbados.

First time in Barbados, definitely not our last!!

  • 5 of 5

Margate Gardens was a great 2 bedroom condo in a secure complex close to all the amenities one could ask for. From dining options, beach access, transportation, banking and shopping ; everything is right there !!! The unit had all the comforts of home, the pool and a/c were a must to battle the heat. It was clean, well maintained and property manager Alexis was super to deal with and she answered all our questions quickly before and during our stay. We would recommend staying at Margate Gardens and visiting Barbados to all. From enjoying a great meal at Tapas, walking along the boardwalk, shopping in Bridgetown, a relaxing day at Accra Beach or by the pool and a nice meal and a glass of wine on the patio watching the sunset; Barbados is truly the jewel of the Caribbean!!!

Wonderful Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at this wonderful condo. We shared it with another adult for 10 days and found the layout perfect for sharing. The bedrooms are located at each end of the condo with the living area and kitchen in between. The condo is clean and has a well equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens. The Margate gardens are spectacular and well maintained by the grounds keepers. The pool area was a great spot to meet new friends and cool off after a day in the sun. We love the location of this property. It is right across the street from the ocean and the boardwalk which we walked every day. Lanterns Mall is next door. It offers iMart (a convenience store), a wine store, a bank/ATM and fast food restaurants. Many great restaurants are within walking distance. Favorites include Tapas, across the street, Shakers (up the side road from Bubba's) and Bistro Monet. Buses to anywhere on the island are available right outside of the condo complex. The Massey grocery store is a 20 minute walk or short bus ride away and provides a wide selection of food items. We ate in a lot particularly for breakfast, lunch and half of our dinners. Oistins is a small fishing village, a 20 minute bus ride away. We bought fresh caught fish there and cooked it at the condo. The Hastings Farmers Market is open Wednesday and Saturday mornings and is a 5 minute walk away. It offers fresh vegetables, fruit and baked breads. Alexis, the property manager, is very attentive and responded quickly to any enquiries or requests we had. She is wonderful to deal with and made our stay in this condo very enjoyable. We have already booked this condo for next February and would highly recommend it to others, without hesitation.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Just spent another fantastic Christmas in Barbados - two great weeks in this lovely apartment. Thanks Alexis for a great stay and making the rental process so easy and straightforward. The apartment proved to be as wonderful as last year. We so enjoyed the outdoor patio, the lovely gardens and the well equipped kitchen during our holiday. The location of this unit is ideal, close to the boardwalk, great restaurants and beautiful Accra Beach. We highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Barbados, perfect for a family or two couples traveling together. We've already booked our stay next year at Christmas.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in Margate Gardens. We were two couples looking for a relaxing and conveniently located flat for our week away and this was the perfect find.

Alexis met us right after our flight arrived- she was extremely friendly and helpful, showing us everything we needed to know and was on call to help if we needed absolutely anything throughout our stay.

The flat is located in a beautiful gated garden complex, away from the road so it's quiet and serene despite being close by to the amazing Accra/Rockley beach, loads of great restaurants (make sure you try Tapas and Naru) and a shopping centre with a small pharmacy/grocery store and a bank where you can easily exchange money. The pool in the complex was quiet and clean.

The flat itself was the perfect layout for two couples, the first room is near the front door with its own bathroom next door. The master suite is at the back with an en suite bathroom. The open plan living room and kitchen as well as laundry is in between and very spacious. There was loads of TV channels, great wi-fi connection and the kitchen was very well stocked with literally everything you could need- from turkey basters to Tupperware containers. There was also hair dryers in both bathrooms, beach towels for each guest, beach chairs and bath towels.

There was a safe to keep valuables in the master bedroom and bars on all the windows. Barbados was very safe, but it was nice knowing all our valuables were secure when we were out and about.

I would definitely recommend this property, Alexis was very friendly and prompt responding to our queries both before our stay and during the week and the apartment was perfectly located, spacious, lovely and catered to our every need! The perfect holiday home away from home and we definitely hope to be back in the near future.
