Okay location, Bad smell

  • 1 of 5

The unit was very dark, filled with cobwebs and in need of major upgrades. The area is decent, but there is a sewage break just outside the complex. Most days the smell was painful not to mention the bits of toilet paper floating in the street.

Great location, lovely safe property, beautiful grounds.

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely 2 weeks at the accommodation. It was well equipped and clean. Good wifi connection. The grounds that the apartment is in were beautiful and the pool was fab!

It's literally across the road from the boardwalk/sea and then a couple of minutes walk to the part of beach where you can bathe.

There's a shopping complex next to the complex which was very handy, and we loved hastings!

Great apartment & great holiday - we hope to return!

The apartment and location was amazing, loved IT

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at the apartment during the carnival period, the location was perfect during our stay. Shops and food where next door, so we did not have far to travel. Communication with the owner was easy and straight forward. The property was clean well laid out and most importantly comfortable, the pool was relaxing and pleasant. Im looking forward to our next stay the following year for carnival.

Ideal Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We are three female professionals living in New York looking for accommodation while returning home to Barbados for the Crop Over Festivities.

The entire process of staying at #15 Margate Gardens was top notch. Once we decided to stay at # 15, we contacted Mr. Marshall who was extremely professional and responsive to our many inquiries. He provided clear instructions and accurate description of the property. Mr. Marshall did everything to ensure we had a wonderful stay including arranging for a driver to collect us at the airport and take us to #15.

Upon arrival at the apartment we were promptly greeted by property manager Ava, who warmly greeted us with true Bajan hospitality and provided an overview of everything we needed to know. Comfortingly, she stayed two doors away in the event of any issues, of which there were none.

When we entered # 15, we felt as though we had already known the property. It was exactly as depicted in the pictures on the HomeAway site. The apartment was spotlessly clean and fresh.

#15 was well appointed with everything you need. Beach and bath towels, iron and ironing board, washer dryer, cutlery and cookware, glasses, plates and small kitchen appliances. There was even a roller way bed available. Ceiling fans and A/C units were available but hardly used as there is a cool breeze the blows through the apartment. The spacious and well laid out apartment was ideally located on the ground floor at the back of the complex so it is very tranquil with easy access to parking and pool areas.

The apartment complex is conveniently nestled in the hub of the South Coast activities. It is on the main Hastings Road directly across the street from the Boardwalk and immediately next to Lanterns Mall with many casual dining options, convenience store, boutiques and banking facilities. Also finer dining establishments like Tapas and Naru are across the street. You are literally a stone's throw away from the popular Accra Beach and and in close proximity to St. Lawrence Gap, Historic Garrison Savannah and Carlisle Bay.

I had several visitors during my stay and they too were impressed by the property and apartment. The grounds and pool areas of the complex were immaculately maintained.

Overall, I highly recommended this well maintained apartment for convenience, value, location, cleanliness, security and for the professionalism of everyone involved.

Thank you for allowing us to feel right at home during our stay.

Great Condo - superb location - Excellent Value !

  • 5 of 5

At Margate Apt#15 Dec 2014 2wks-longtime vacationer to Barbados (BGI)–over 30 times! Know the area very well-aware of associated costs/challenges for a condo owner–what they need to provide to the average renter in such a competitive/expensive rental mrket as BGI. This place IDEAL!

More than satisfied! Better than advertised! Without a doubt the nicest/most affordable property ever stayed at in BGI–Terrific value-most bang for my vacation buck! Awesome location! Like home.

Owner, Ray Marshall, very personable & accommodating-entire booking process was seamless/hassle-free from Aug2014 booking date–up to our arrival thru the entire stay he was attentive to our needs & most kind–convenient that he was at Margate in another owned condo 2 doors away -very considerate/friendly landlord!

Condo fully furnished - all the usual amenities one would expect to find at home–very comfortable! Kitchen fully stocked with adequate supply/selection of dishes/glasses, pots/pans, cutlery/utensils, blender, washer/dryer. Maid service avail at reasonable charge when required. Layout efficient/spacious w/ good useful placement of furniture - very clean. Both bdrms well sized-have access to their own bathrooms. A/C only in bdrms, should be used only at night with door closed given high energy cost in BGI - not a problem at all! During the day-good breeze blows through #15 from front door thru to back patio & there is are ceiling fans-door access front/back have lockable metal gates/bars–use for security reasons! Good WiFi too-works on patio!

Overall property is fantastic–well kept grounds, clean refreshing pool/shower-oddly quiet considering the main coast road is just steps away outside Margate. This place isnt overcrowded, feels like you have your own private pool! A well hidden gem! Perfectly located in Hastings - access to boardwalk across the street, pubs/bars/restaurants just a short walk away & of course the beach! Boardwalk access is at mid-point of 2-3km boardwalk stretch, so one of the best beaches in BGI, “Rockley” is 10min walkaway, & the CoconutCourtHotel beach is about the same the other way–very convenient! Buses/route taxis also available just outside Margate–and there is a shopping centre 5min walkaway with convenience store, restaurants, shops/bank.

Look forward to returning here end of 2015. It checks off all the things I look for in a hassle-free vacation where great value is found-Recommend this condo to anyone–they wont be disappointed.

Margate Gardens 2 bedroom ground floor apartment is very conveniently located on the South Coast of Barbados. Across the road from the popular 1.5 kilometre board walk. It is the first Barbados Boardwalk by the sea, complete with panoramas, seats and retreats. All ages and abilities use it. A breathtaking 10 minute stroll to one of the best beaches on the South Coast, Rockley, is only a stone throw away. St. Lawrence Gap, the entertainment centre of Barbados is just 2 km away. Restaurants, malls, bars, convenience stores, fast food restaurants, within walking distance. The historical Garrison is just 1 km away. Should you prefer not to rent a car, public transport is at your finger tips. For the golfers, Rockley 9 hole is 1.5 Km away and the local favourite Barbados Golf Club is 9 km away. Yet, once you are at Margate Gardens, surrounded by lush tropical gardens and central communal pool you feel relaxed and unaware of all that is going on so close. Quiet, serene and well kept.

Golf: In Barbados'Golfers can choose from among some of the best championship courses in the Caribbean.'

Sunny weather mostly all year round makes Barbados an ideal location for golf and the perfect vacation spot for golfers and 'would-be' golfers!

The glorious weather conditions are complemented by world-class golf courses and facilities. Most golf clubs offer professional instruction.

Several hotels and resorts offer special golf packages and Barbados is increasingly being regarded as one of the top English speaking islands for a Caribbean golf vacation.

Several golf tournaments are hosted throughout the year, attracting participants from a number of countries including Europe and North America. In December 2006 Barbados hosted the World Golf Championships World Cup. The four-day tournament was held at the Sandy Lane Resort on the west coast of the island.

In October 2004, perhaps the world's most famous golfer - Tiger Woods - chose Barbados as the venue for his wedding. The ceremony took place at Sandy Lane Golf Course.

Mingle with the locals at the Barbados Golf Club, or play at the spectacular Apes Hill Golf and Country Club; one of the most breath taking golf courses in the Caribbean.
