To get you started when you arrive, the fully equipped kitchen will have a complimentary selection of staples such as crackers, butter, jams, juice, coffee, tea, sugar, bottled water, and fresh fruit, when available from the garden.

Ideally located on the popular south coast of the island, Glenville Gardens is just 5 minutes walking distance to the famous Rockley Beach (also known as Accra Beach). Also within a 5 minute walk are restaurants, supermarkets (with a shuttle bus service), shopping plazas, banking facilities, night clubs, taxi and car rental services.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I am back in Bermuda safe and sound. I am now at my desk facing the challenges and stresses of my world. Glenville was a welcome respite from all this craziness.



I had an absolutely wonderful time at Glenville. As I told you, almost all of my trips (about 12 times a year) involve staying in large hotels with all the creature comforts one could want. However, my spirit prefers to be surrounded by little "concrete" and lots of Mother Nature's bounty and so, Glenville was a beautiful diversion from the "large hotel scene". The gardens were beautiful; the sound of birds singing to me each morning and the home-baked goodies were a special treat :) I have yet to see the turtles

that are purported to be cavorting around the property :)



I really appreciated your warm hospitality and the relaxing atmosphere. I shall definitely be promoting Glenville as a place to get away form all the "hustle and bustle".

Perfect place for families

  • 5 of 5
It has already been the second time that we came to Glenville Gardens with three little kids, one being a baby. The place is a wonderful green oasis with lots of fruit trees, very cosy cottages with fully equipped kitchen. Also a washing machine is at your disposition. Just a 3min walk from the sea and boardwalk with nice beaches and restaurants. The hosts Barbara and Sugrim are very welcoming, their banana cake and coconut buns delicious! The kids can room around safely in the garden and play with or feed the chicken and turtles.

Excellent location to stay at in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5
Glenville Gardens is a wonderful place to stay for the sophisticated traveler. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and their recommendations were very appreciated by us. The service is very friendly and professional. Barbara responds quickly to email questions and kept in touch about our upcoming visit. The cottage that we rented was fully equipped and private, we felt as though we were staying a garden home, not a cottage rental. The decor is tropical, complete with two decks which we used every night for our meals. The location is very quiet and restful, and the cottage was extremely clean. At night you do not hear any street noise at all, and each morning we were awoken by the sounds of birds and monkeys in the trees. The location is within walking distance to the beach, shops, banks, and restaurants. The best part was that we were able to come and go on this beautiful property, which felt like home after merely one week.

Glenville Gardens - A Beautiful Sanctuary Tucked in the Middle of the Best of Barbados

  • 5 of 5
Just came back from a week in Glenville Gardens. The location is fabulous, just steps from Rockley (Accra) Beach, St. Lawrence Gap and lots of restaurants and shopping. Glenville is a group of lovely cottages that are enclosed in a sanctuary with beautiful gardens and animals (chickens, turtles, etc.). The cottages are immaculately clean, and the owners, Barbara and Sugrim are very hospitable and helpful. Outstanding value, great location, wonderful hospitality - we are already planning our return!

A quiet retreat among beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5
My husband just spent two beautiful weeks at Glenville Gardens, celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary. This is among one of nicest trips we have ever made to Barbados and we have made many over the years. Glenville one bedroom cottages are well equipped with all the house keeping utensils one would need. Plenty of fresh clean towels were provided along with the maid service twice per week. Glenville is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main roadway in a quiet garden that provides a beauty in its flowers as well as the occasional tree ripened mango for breakfast. Barbara and Sugrim are the kindest and most pleasant people. The homemade, warm from the oven loaves are an added bonus and a delight to receive after a morning at the beach or a long walk in the afternoon. I would highly recommend this lovely place in Barbados. What a wonderful holiday we had before the highly charged Holiday season begins

Wonderful stay, a must for a Hastings stay!

  • 5 of 5
Glenville Gardens is a very special place indeed, tucked away in Browns Gap Hastings, you are instantly moved to a wonderful, relaxing world. Owners, Sugrim and Barbara take great care and pride in their lovely establishment and have managed to create a great atmosphere in this property with its multitude of natural features, there are loads of fruit trees, chickens and turtles all of which give this place a unique and charming feel. They were also incredibly warm, welcoming and willing to help with any number of things to ensure a pleasant stay for guests. The cottages themselves are very comfortable and thoughtfully laid out. The kitchen in particular was really well equipped with almost everything you could possibly imagine, which made cooking or having a BBQ really convenient. Lots of information on the amenities, things to do and the local area was available in the cottage, however Barbara was always happy to assist with any questions. The cottages are conveniently located very close to the lovely boardwalk along the beach and near to the scenic Accra Beach. There is also a TriMart grocery store in the shopping plaza nearby on the main road along with a great selection of restaurants and other shops. Bridgetown is also a short trip away in a taxi or you can catch one of the frequent buses on the nearby main road. The airport is also a short 20 minute ride away with reasonable taxi rates. My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here and would be happy to return for the relaxing atmosphere and hospitality offered, its well worth a visit.

Holiday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We booked a one-bedroom cottage for a 10 day stay and were very happy with location, accommodation and service. Glenville Gardens is located in Hastings, Christ Church at the south coast of Barbados. The excellent Accra beach is only a 10 min. walk away. To get there don’t take the hot and noisy road but get on the beach at the KFC and take the beautiful promenade walk to the left hand side. This promenade is so beautiful that it would be worth a trip in itself but if you stay at Glenville Gardens this is the standard way to the beach! Accra beach is beautiful too with usually not too many people, the possibility to rent umbrellas, chairs and boogie boards and nice waves. The waves are usually not dangerous but make snorkeling difficult. As waves are much smaller on the west coast, snorkeling is much better there. If you have a car and take the Highway you could be on the west coast from Glenville Gardens within less than 30 minutes.
Supermarkets are slightly far away if you don’t have a car (Big B is the best) but you can take one of the numerous private busses on the way for a small fee of 2BDS to shorten the way. And the supermarket usually offers a complimentary trip back for you.
The cottages are situated in a beautiful garden with old Mahogany trees and beautiful flowers. With birds singing, a small tortoise family and the legendary banana bread of the host, Barbara, it is a small paradise, indeed.
The fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, large fridge and microwave makes cooking easy. If you are in the mood for steak you can use a gas barbecue in the garden. Just don’t forget to bring insect repellant for the mosquitos.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Glenville Gardens to everybody who wants a quite place for a relaxing vacation. 5 stars out of 5!
