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.

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.

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.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Rod and Wanda's beautiful condo. There is so much we love about their place!

The location is ideal - next door to the Lantern Mall with its great shopping and eateries; the proximity to the famous south coast Boardwalk; across the road from the highly rated Tapas restaurant and a stones throw to the lovely twice weekly Hastings farmers market.

The condomitselfmhas been well maintained and is well equipped. The new living room furnishings are beautiful and comfortable and the new keypad lock is a real plus. The kitchen has everything you need to "cook in" which is what we love to do and then enjoy our meal on the spacious patio overlooking the beautiful pool and lush gardens. The beds - a king and a queen- are very comfortable ( with memory foam toppers) and ensure a good nights sleep. There are ample good quality linens and towels supplied in the unit as well. We really appreciate the beach chairs which take with us every day to the nearby Accra beach which saves $$ on rentals on the beach.

Jamella the property manager is very accessible and promptly addresses any questions or concerns about the condo. Nakita does a wonderful job maintaining the cleanliness of the unit weekly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and returned rested and renewed and look forward to our return in 2017.

Thanks so much Rod and Wanda for sharing your little piece of paradise with us again.

Our overall impression is an unreserved five stars

  • 5 of 5

When we booked the property we needed a comfortable apartment a short distance from the Barbados Yacht Club as we were participating in an international sailing competition. Grand Hibiscus, Barbados proved to be an excellent choice. It is spacious, clean and very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and laundry. Being a short bus ride from the yacht club and just accross the road from the beach, board walk and an excellent Tapas restaurant gave us all the comfort and convenience we sought. The small shoppping area nearby was useful for its convenience store and bank.

We really enjoyed the balcony area, which over looks a beautiful garden and swimming pool, for eating and relaxing. The frequent visits of the finches and humming birds enhanced this enjoyment. The spacious living areas and bedrooms with large comfortable beds meant that we always slept well, even in the heat of Barbados.

Although near to the Yacht Club and Bridgetown we enjoyed using the variety of bus and taxi transport. The crowded mini buses were our usual preference as it gave the opportunity to engage with the ever-friendly locals.

The only problem we encountered during our staywas high winds which challenged the yachts but cooled those left on the shore. We simply had a wonderful stay in the apartment and Barbados. A big thanks to Rod and Wanda for letting us use their lovely apartment and to the West Indies test cricketer who gave us a lift when we got lost in the north of the island.

The accommodations were exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation experience! The condo was immaculate and had all the comforts of home. The weather was great and the balcony made our mornings and evenings a perfect setting. We enjoyed Tapa s restaurant and would recommend this to everyone. Having the mall right next door was perfect for takeout, for a convienence store, ice cream shop and health food store with an excellent variety of protein shakes. We would definitely consider staying here again!

Barbados 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Barbados 3 times now, and this was by far the best condo we have stayed at. The condo is perfectly located close to anything that you would ever need. The gardens and pool are majestic. You are beside the main road and all the action, but would never know it sitting on your peaceful balcony. Speaking of the balcony, big and beautiful with 2 palm trees and a great view of the gardens and ocean. Great service and everyone on the compound is so friendly. The condo itself is very clean, has everything you need and more!! The owners are caring and helpful in anyway they can. I could go on and on. On our next visit we will definitely be staying here if available. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

We all loved the big open Balcony looking over the Pool and Garden

  • 5 of 5

Stayed two weeks at this lovely homey condo. We were a couple and a friend so the two bedroom and two bathroom arrangement with central open kitchen and great room worked perfectly. The two ladies cooked most of the vacation and appreciated the well stock kitchen with high-end cookware. Every kind of kitchen gadget was available. The George Foreman grill worked well for our steaks.

The location is perfect. We walked on the 1 mile board walk just across the street every morning and many afternoons to shop. Consequently no one gained any weight even with the nightly drinks before dinner on the balcony. Weather was so great we never eat inside once. Watched the monkeys come for the bananas in the garden late afternoons.

There was AC in the bedrooms and didn't miss it in the great room since with the doors open front and balcony there was always a good breeze.

While Barbados is lovely, good accommodation makes all the difference.

This is the Biggs' home away from home and they make you feel it is yours as well.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at this wonderful condo from mid-January to mid-February 2016. We shared the condo for 2 weeks with another couple 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 patio/balcony is huge and nicely furnished with a patio table and chairs to accommodate 6 people, a lounge chair and 2 rattan chairs all overlooking the spectacular gardens and pool of Margate Gardens. This condo is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. Beds were very comfortable. The location of this condo is ideal. Across the street is the ocean and the boardwalk which we walked every day. Rockley/Accra Beach is located at the end of the boardwalk. Try the fish cakes at Joan's Oasis bar at Accra Beach. They are a must! Bus service is just outside the front door of the condo complex. Several good restaurants are within walking distance. Favourites include Tapas, Bistro Monet and Shaker's (up the side street from Bubba's). Oistins is a small fishing village, a 20 minute bus ride away. We bought fresh caught fish there and cooked it in the condo. The Massey grocery store is a short walk or bus ride away and offers a great selection of food items. The Hastings Farmers Market is up the street from the condo and is open Wednesday and Saturday mornings and offers fresh fruit and veggies and baked breads. The owners, Rod and Wanda, are very accommodating and extremely easy to deal with. Rod called us to make sure everything was OK during our stay. We would definitely stay at this condo again and highly recommend it to others.
