Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Grand Hibiscus Barbados!

Enjoy relaxing with your loved ones on the huge balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and pool with views of the sea.

Our condo is just steps away from the beach, dining and all amenities.

Located on the south coast in Hastings, Christ Church, you are in the best location for experiencing Barbados. The Barbados Boardwalk is right across the street which ends at the popular Rockley (Accra) beach.

Our condo is 1450 square feet with two air conditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. French doors from each bedroom and living room open onto the huge balcony.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, which includes a blender to whip up some cool drinks. The unit also includes an in suite washer and dryer, cable T.V., internet and local phone.

The beautiful gardens and pool are a great place to relax and unwind. The condo is gated and has plenty of parking out front and you can enjoy your own parking spot inside the gate.

Right next door is Lanterns at Hastings which has everything you need; restaurants, convenience store, shops, food court and a RBC bank.

Within walking distance you will find a variety of dining from Subway, KFC to sports bars, to five star restaurants. All major banks, plenty of shopping and full grocery stores are a short walk away.

The popular Rockley golf course is a short distance away and there are other beautiful courses on the island to try.

If you enjoy diving, there are many operators to choose from. Carlisle bay is close by and offers a beautiful beach as well as many great dive sites and snorkeling.

The local bus system is very reliable and can take you just about anywhere on the island. If you wish to rent a car, there are many from which to choose.

We hope you agree that this beautiful condo in this perfect location will give you lasting memories and a desire to visit again and again.

Welcome to Barbados and enjoy!

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.

stay at Margate Gardens August 2016

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was really nice -- everything you could wish for in terms of an 8 day stay --- WIFI and TV were great and the air conditioning was a welcome relief when we came back to the apartment -- all appliances worked really well not that we ate much apart from breakfast - the balcony is absolutely superb and really nice to enjoy a drink during each evening watching humming birds and monkeys in the trees -- superb panoramic view of the complex -- overall I would definitely stay here again as felt very safe -- lots of equipment for beach - chairs, snorkels, flippers, lounger etc

observations -- some of the kitchenware needs updating -- some of the stuff was rusty -- bathroom tiles need updating -- I would put a wet room in one of the bathrooms - probably the ensuite bathroom - strange siren like sound periodically (handyman said it was coming from next door but it was annoying) Oh and you know about the hairdryer -- never in 25 years of travelling has my wife ever had to buy her own hairdryer -- for £25 it stops any future complaints --- Overall your apartment is really really nice and we are already planning to come back and stay in August again -- don't worry we bought a hair dryer and will bring that

Thanks for a great stay

Owner's Response: Hi Darryl, Thank you for your review! It was very nice talking with you while you were enjoying Barbados! Thank you for your understanding with the hairdryer. We have not had many requests for one as our guests like using their own.It may be that we include one in the future. We try to have a good balance of items in our home that we like to use and what we think our guests will enjoy as well. Most of our guests love that we leave our boogie boards and beach gear for them to use and that our kitchen is so well stocked. A byproduct of that great breeze that blows through the condo is that we must replace things sooner as they start to show signs of rust. Our agent has been great in replacing items that are showing ware. We like your ideas regarding the wet room! It's possible that if we plan to renovate in the future, it may involve different tile. Thank you for your suggestions and for staying in our home and we look forward to your visit next year! Warm memories, Rod and Wanda

More than we expected !

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay July 27-Aug 3, 2016 and we were overly impressed with the condo . First, Rod and Wanda were excellent to deal with and always available for questions prior to the trip . They were so kind to even call us during our stay , to ensure that their home met our standards.

This condo is fully equipped with EVERYTHING! It's has a great view of the pool , love the balcony ( we ate all our meals out there), interior looks exactly like the photos and is very clean. The bonus is that you are in walking distance to quite a few amenities which came in handy . We felt safe at all times and would definitely stay in their unit again .

Thank you for making our stay a dream vacation !

A perfect location with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Rod and Wanda for an amazing week. The condo was well equipped with more than what we needed, boogie boards, snorkelling gear, cooler bags, beach chairs, towels, fully equipped kitchen and so much more. The location is perfect as it is central to a grocery store, restaurants and across the road from the beach and boardwalk. We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was here and we would highly recommend this condo for a Barbados vacation.

Parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié ce condo dans le sud de l'ile, il est bien localisé, propre et il y a tout le nécessaire. Vous avez tout à pied, la Plage Accra, une petite épicerie à coté, le Boardwalk tout en façe, donc bien utile. J'ai utilisé le boardwalk tôt le matin pour faire mon jogging, le chemin n'est pas bien long, il faut faire quelques aller-retour mais la vue est magnifique. Le condo est très confortable et propre, des grandes chambres et 2 salles de bain. Évidemment, nous avons bien profité de la grande terrasse tous les jours pour déjeuner et pour le souper. La village de Oistins avec tous les restos de poisson n'est pas bien loin, nous avons donc acheté la bouffe là bas et nous l'avons mangé ici sur la terrasse. Le condo est tranquille et sécuritaire , il y a une piscine et j'ai vu des petits singes dans la cour.

Nous avions une voiture de location, on a visité les plages du coin et la côte est, les plages sont magnifiques mais moins propices à la baignade. Mais il faut y aller pour admirer les paysages.

Bref ce condo est parfait et propre, si vous pensez venir en Barbade, n'hésitez pas à choisir ce jolie condo!

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at margate gardens, the gardens were beautiful and the view from the condo was amazing. We loved the breeze that would flow through and we often just sat at the table on the patio to relax....it was truly soothing and enjoyable. The pool was a great refresher and our children had so much fun splashing around! They also got a lot of enjoyment from the monkeys that visited around 5ish .... So cute and a great memory. The beds!!! The beds were so comfortable! So much so that we are talking about buying a new mattress now that we are home! :)) the kitchen had everything we needed and worked well for our needs during our vacation. We felt very secure in the gated property and our surroundings were very convenient!! Shopping, beach, tasty restaurants, and coffee/smoothie shop just down the street! Thanks Rod and Wanda for sharing your little slice of heaven with the world....it was a beautiful stay!
