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.

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.

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 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 was a beautiful stay!

Outstanding vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

There is little more I can say that hasn't already been expressed, but I will try!

From the moment we walked through the front gate onto the grounds of Margate Gardens we were smitten! The grounds are a lush tropical retreat that immediately puts the mind into a zen like state. It's a little piece of paradise on one of the best islands. The condo itself was also outstanding. Nicely decorated, clean and refreshing. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable that I my sleep was not interrupted in the least. TV had many channels but quite frankly, we didn't have it on all that often.

The balcony is a magical place! So well furnished, over looking the gardens and pool. We spent our mornings and evenings on it, enjoying our morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and evening dinner! The location couldn't be better if you decide to go without renting a vehicle. The local buses are a breeze to take and many local restaurants are within walking distance. We did visit several of them - Tapas, Chutney's, Akee's (the absolute best Roti!). We were lucky to meet up with a local resident and he was gracious with his time taking us around to the local coffee house at the Garrison. The food was outstanding (Barbados Coffee house) and if you get an opportunity to visit it you won't be disappointed.

We had no issues during our stay. Everything was in perfect working order. I've rented many many homes and by far this one is tops! The Barbados itself is enchanting and Margate Gardens is a homey, comfortable piece of Barbados. Rod and Wanda were fabulous to work with. We'll be back!

Its a great location to start your day exploring and end up relaxing at one of our great restaurants near by in the evening. The staff at Margate are exceptional and do and amazing job of looking after our guests and our beautiful gardens. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon! Warm memories, Rod and Wanda

Great Find, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

I meant to write this review a while ago. We booked this condo as a last minute booking due to an emergency. The price was very fair. The Biggs were so accommodating during this time. We were extremely happy when we arrived and saw that the condo was immaculate & well maintained. It is like a contained garden oasis, so serene. It is in a gated community which we loved & made us feel safer. Both bedrooms are air conditioned & air conditioners work well. There is a large balcony overlooking the garden & the pool. We did not use the pool. We did encounter a slight plumbing issue that was hastily fixed when we contacted the owner. Across the street is the beach, down the road is a strip mall with a number of great places to eat in addition to a higher end restaurant across the street(can't recall the name)within walking distance. The pictures on the site are correct. This is a central location in the city. buses & taxis are readily available. We will definately look into staying here again if the property is available for our next visit
