Facing the ocean, Beachgate lies on the vibrant south coast in Hastings, just west of the popular Boardwalk. Approaching this charming architect-designed villa, you are amazed to discover it opens up into two large apartments, the upper a 3 bedroom en-suite, the lower, two bedrooms en-suite. Both are tastefully furnished, with spacious, open-plan living/dining areas that flow out onto large verandahs.
Steps from your door lies the ocean. There’s always the constant sound of the sea, an unforgettable view, and the gentle rustle of trade winds in the Coconut trees. You can sit on the wide stretch of beach, swim and snorkel in the protected lagoon (perfect for kids) or the more adventurous can surf or snorkel the barrier reef just beyond.
If sand and sea are not really your thing, relax and sip a drink by the pool which is shared by both units. Whether to unwind, go for a nearby adventure, treat your taste buds or explore local culture, Beachgate is perfectly suited. Most of our guests choose not to rent a car as everything is close by!
Step out onto the beach. Turn left and you can walk on the boardwalk to the spectacular Rockley beach, aka Accra beach, with its famous ultra fine white sand where locals and tourists mix. Turn right and stroll along the peaceful coast towards the famous Hil-ton beach. Back at Beachgate, you will take with you a lasting memory of the sun sinking into the horizon, and as you sit cocktail in hand, you may even see the elusive green flash.
There are three great dining choices on the boardwalk, Blakey’s, Tapas, and Naru with a half dozen others within walking distance. Also be sure to catch the Saturday farmer’s market opposite Blakey’s from 9AM to 1PM for your typical local Barbadian produce and crafts.
It’s a short walk to Lanterns mall, a great stop for groceries and general supplies, a pharmacy, health food store, Haagen Das ice cream, and tasty local and foreign food alternatives for those looking for a quick meal.
For duty free shoppers:
There are duty free shops in Worthing, five minutes by local bus or take a ten minute ride to Bridgetown. On Broad Street you will find fine jewellery shops, Cave Shepherd, a large department store, and other shops. For a great local shopping experience visit bustling Swan Street.
For history buffs:
There’s the Hastings Historic District and storied Garrison area of Barbados. It is the location of the Old Colonial Officers Quarters and Army Hospital. The Savannah comprises the main military guard buildings, with beautiful Victorian architecture complete with a large collection of old cannons, the Barbados Turf Club (Horse Racing), the historical museum, and a vast open sports area for rugby, soccer, cricket, all surrounded by walking and running tracks.
Very spacious, very clean, 3 bedroom large living/dining area few steps away from a lovely beach. The balcony's view is unforgettable. We stayed in the upper villa for 10 days and we never got bored of the fantastic views to the sea. The villa is located at an excellent position to see the rest of the island if you have a car, although there are several restaurants and convenient shops nearby. Tina and Philip were fantastic hosts; always eager to help us with all our questions and requests.
It was a dream holiday and would definitely stay there again.
Lots of room, 2 bedroom large living/dining area and steps from the beach.
Very nice pool with lots of lounges. Also has a great huge lanai covered for shade
Two large bedrooms.
Very clean and well maintained by staff.
There is also an upper villa.
Would definitely stay there again.
This is also a great property to rent both upper and lower level
5 Couples shared the whole villa and could not have been more happy with everything. we have been visiting Barbados for over 20yrs and this was to celebrate 2 couples 50th wedding Anniversaries. and we could not have chosen a better place. Tina and Philip gave us every assistance with our planning and were able to join us and friends and family on our day.
The following week I took a bit of a fall and once again Tina was able to help with recommend a delightful Osteopath that came to the house and help me back on my feet again.
We spent nearly 4 weeks at Beachgate and could have stayed much longer!

All of our very high expectations were met with this holiday and especially Lower Beachgate. Tina and Phillip met us and gave us a very comprehensive hand over. All of our communication from inquiry to departure was very friendly and prompt.
This is a most beautiful property in the very best position both on the island and with close proximity to the beach and boardwalk. We didn't really leave the surrounding area for the first 5 days as we just enjoyed the atmosphere this property provides. We never tired of the views. Sunset was simply stunning from the terrace and the perfectly placed palm trees providing the perfect vista.
The property is both spacious and luxurious, with every appliance and convenience you could possibly need. The housekeepers were very friendly and appeared often. The pool guy seemed to come every morning (quietly going about his business).
Some lovely restaurants near by, highly recommend Tapas on the boardwalk. Regular buses right outside the door. $2 anywhere. The supermarket is a short ride or taxi drive away (smaller mini-market near by). Supermarket prices were comparable to UK prices.
We made good use of the huge gas BBQ on the terrace and actually only went out 3 nights out of 16.
We just loved this holiday and that was particularly down to this beautiful accommodation. I would not hesitate to recommend this as the most perfect place to enjoy a very special holiday.
Can't wait to return!
Upper Beachgate is a fabulous place to stay. The property was beautiful, the kitchen well equipped and out hosts, Tina and Phil, were the best! Tina suggested a Catamaran cruise (which she kindly booked for us) and it was one of the best tours I've been on. The sun is strong in Barbados, so it was a treat to discover the pool is in the afternoon shade. It is also very easy to get around the island. We (6 of us) hired a cab for the day. The grocery stores are very accommodating and have courtesy shuttles back to your cottage. Staying at Upper Beachgate was everything we expected and more!
Hastings is approximately two miles from Bridgetown along highway 7.
It is home to the Historic Garrison area and of the Barbados Turf clubs horse racing track.
Brandons beach is good for surfing
The new south coast boardwalk runs from Hastings to Rockley and there you can find many fine restaurant and bars.
