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 Haagen-Dazs Cafe for your sweet tooth.

Within walking distance you will find a variety of dining from Subway 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.

Rod and Wanda are wonderful hosts. The condo and complex are just as pictured. It is spacious, clean, and well equiped with everything you need. The grounds and other buildings are well looked after too. Restaurants, shopping and of course the beach is all in walking distance. If you do decide to rent a car there is parking for it inside the gated complex.
The restaurants in the Lantern Mall (right next door) were great for a quick lunch. We also ate at Tapas and Blakley's and Champers (Champers is a bit of a walk up the street) be sure to try the chicken from Chefette :).
If you looking for a very enjoyable catamaran trip without a lot of people and loud music, try Bolador Sea and Land Tours. The crew of Geoff, Dani and Chad were great! (Geoff only accepts cash for payment).
We enjoyed everything about our 8 day vacation in Barbados!! Can't wait to go back, hopefully this condo will be available when we do :) Thanks Rod and Wanda!!

It's always a bit of a gamble when you opt for a private rental but this one certainly paid off!
We loved: the airy, breezy apartment, spacious balcony, comfy bed, beautiful gardens, superb 'extras' such as boogie boards, cool bags etc.
We spent 3 weeks in Barbados and split our time between Hastings and the west coast (near Speightstown). We hired a car for the latter 2 weeks, if (when!) we come back, we will just stay on the south coast as we found the beaches better (bigger and easier access) and the restaurants to be plentiful and less expensive. We wouldn't bother to hire a car as the local buses are great (if a little alarming at times!), cheap and drop you right outside the apartment for 2BD a ride.
The apartment was efficiently managed by Natalie and we were given a wealth of information about the area and all the in-house devices. I'm pleased to say that we didn't even turn the TV on! We had access to spare sheets and towels and the sunbeds provided were portable and very comfy - perfectly good enough to laze on the beach in areas where there were no rentals. We did a deal, however, with the sunbed chap on Accra beach as we paid in advance for 5 days (2 beds+parasol) for 100BD.
We had breakfasts and some lunches on the balcony but went out for dinner each night. There are so many great restaurants (all sorts of prices) that it was hard to choose. Our favourites were Champers and Tapas.
We loved our time at Margate Gardens and are very grateful to Rod and Wanda for providing such a delightful holiday home.

Excellent location and just as described

  • 4 of 5
The property was just as the pictures showed. The condo unit was spacious, clean and very well equipped. A great thing also is the easy communication with owners, manager and cleaning lady. It was our first trip to Barbados and what a lovely introduction. The location is ideal and we felt no need for a car & in fact only twice took a taxi and that was to and from the airport - even then you can take a bus. The beach right across the street is so much fun for boogie boarding (boards provided in condo) and a 20 minute walk or 5 minute van (private bus thing) ride to Carlisle Bay for perfect snorkelling. Easy walk to grocery stores & restaurants. The condo is very spacious , clean & bright & lots of cupboard space with a very large covered balcony. A breeze goes through the unit to keep the temperature just right. A huge thank you to Rod and Wanda for sharing their Barbados home.

We are so happy that you chose to stay with us for your first trip to this beautiful island. It really is so easy to get around from the south coast and the close location of restaurants and beaches is one of the reasons we chose this location. Thank you for taking such great care of our home and we hope that you will come back and stay again soon.
Until then,

Fantastic family vacation spot!

We loved Barbados! Can't wait to stay here again. The condo location is perfect. Close to shopping, restaurants and just a short walk across the street to get to a beautiful beach.

Rod and Wanda thought of everything! The condo was clean, comfortable and well supplied with needed beach items. We appreciated all the information they provided in their letter, phone conversations and binders and magazines in the condo. We were given lots of practical information and ideas for places to see and activities to do while in Barbados.

spacious, clean and well equipped!!

Let me start by saying that the pictures do not do this condo justice! I was worried that my son would not have anywhere to crawl...he had MORE than enough room!! The open concept living, dining and kitchen was great and the place was very clean with all danger tucked away so I didn't have to worry at all. It is definitely child friendly. :)

The only time we used the A/c was once when we got home from a long day a the beach when my mother had a migrane. And thanks to the big fans throughout the condo they did a great job at keeping most of the mosquitos out and the condo nice and cool.

The grounds were well kept and the garden was beautiful!

The condo had a lot of info on tours, nearby amenities and services that we could choose from which came in very handy.

Lanterns mall was very convenient (right next door).

The landline came in handy as did the WiFi!!

The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of cleaning supplies (which was great because I was traveling with my 2 children).

My daughter's favorite part was the abundance of water sports equipment. I did not expect that at all!!

The property manager (Natalie) was even nice enough to call and check up on us to see if we needed assistance with anything mid-week.

I must say that the owners went above and beyond to ensure that their guests would feel at home. There really wasn't much to miss at home except family.

Overall the condo was great, very comfortable and I will definitely be staying there again and recommending it to others!

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
