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.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was a much needed vacation and this beautiful condo delivered!

We stayed in the condo from October 21-29 and it was perfect.

As soon as we exited the airport there was someone there to greet us from a car service that the owner had recommended and provided us with their number. When we arrived at the condo complex there was someone to show us to the condo, explain details and make sure we were comfortable. At any point during our stay I had the condo manager's cell phone number and I could reach her personally if I needed anything at all. The customer service was like no other. It almost felt like we were in a hotel. The owner even had a cleaning service come in mid-week to clean the condo for us, a much appreciated treat.

The condo complex was well secured and had immaculate gardens and grounds. The neighbours were friendly and kind and the condo complex was quiet and relaxing. We have three young boys that loved the pool and we were there swimming most days with a few days never leaving the condo complex because the amenities were so nice. When the boys went to sleep my husband and I enjoyed drinking wine on the balcony and relaxing to the song of the whistling frogs.

The condo is situated right in the middle of everything. We walked most places and visited a new beach everyday! Directly beside the condo is a plaza that contains a drugstore/mini mart, a wine and liquor store, clothing, restaurants and more. We found it very convenient.

We enjoyed the local cuisine at Oistin's Fish Market and Shakers, a local restaurant near by. There are many great restaurants in walking distance for anyone's taste buds, from fast food to fine dinning.

I would definitely recommend this condo to a friend or family member and I plan on bringing my family back here again soon. This was the perfect getaway and much more comfortable and enjoyable then a hotel.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Condo for 2 weeks from Sept. 24 to Oct. 8, 2016 sharing with our 2 friends. We each had our own washroom which was convenient. Plenty of room. It was clean and well maintained and was a great location. Close to many restaurants and bars, groceries and the beach. The condo had everything we needed and was as shown in the pictures. We didn't have a car and used the buses which were wonderful. It cost only 2 Barbados dollars and at times very entertaining.

People were very friendly and helpful at Margate Gardens and everywhere we went. We enjoyed the pool and the beach. It was great to have the beach chairs, boogie boards and a cooler. Even though the beach was across the street it was literally only 2 minutes walk. The beach was clean and sandy, no need for water shoes. The boardwalk was unique and convenient for walking to the beach and several restaurants. If not at the pool or beach we stayed on the large, comfortable balcony with a great view of the pool and partial view of the ocean.

The only negative is how expensive most grocery items are. The quality of some of the produce was mediocre at best. We ate breakfast only at the condo. You may wish to bring some coffee and some snacks as both are very expensive. You can get good fruit at the Farmer's Market nearby at the Art Splash on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Given this we enjoyed the abundance of restaurants nearby. You can eat at just the restaurants at the Lantern Mall next door. However, there were so many other good restaurants like Tapas directly across the street on the beach. Tapas is a 5 star restaurant with impeccable service and delicious food. We also really liked Ackee Tree, a family run West Indian restaurant that we frequented several times. Super friendly and really reasonable prices. We also had a great time at Cafe Sol, a Mexican restaurant in St. Lawrence Gap. Go for Happy Hour and pick a night they have your favorite drink 2-1 all night. Wednesday night is Margarita night with live music.

Rod and Wanda, the owners, were great to deal with and answered all of our questions promptly. Jamella, the Property Manager, took care of us and was available if we needed her. Nakita, the Maid, was excellent as well keeping everything clean and being so friendly.

We would highly recommend this property and plan on returning in the 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.
