Hastings Apartment Rental Photos and Description
One bedroom and two bedroom apartments. Can be used as a 3 bedroom
Swanage is a truly special place. Designed in keeping with the old Barbadian chattel house tradition, it is tastefully decorated and furnished to make it a definite home away from home.
There are very few beach front villas in Barbados that puts you this close to the sea. Relax on the patio, watch the spectacular sunsets, sip a drink and look down at the ocean literally at your feet.
Located right at the end of the fabulous South Coast Boardwalk The famous Accra (Rockley) Beach is 5 minutes walk up the board walk and Hilton & Coconut Court are both a few minutes walk down the beach.
This villa is very central located right on a public transport route but is also a very tranquil beach front location.
Renting a car is optional as there are many restaurants, shops, banking, tea & coffee houses, bistros & spas within walking distance of the apartment. You can take the public transport to the local grocery store & they will drop you back free of charge.
Hastings Historic Area: Hastings is part of the Historic Garrison Area of Barbados. It is the location of the Old Colonial Officers Quarters and Army Hospital, (now Pavilion Court) It is also the beach entrance to the new Boardwalk. The Savannah consists of the Main Guard, a beautiful Victorian building complete with a large collection of Old Cannons, the Barbados Turf Club (Horse Racing), the Museum, and a vast open area of sports grounds for Rugby, Football, Cricket and Basketball all surrounded by walking and running tracks.
The South Coast Boardwalk: The fantastic new boardwalk runs from Rockley Beach for approximately 1 kilometre towards Bridgetown. The boardwalk starts just below Accra Beach Hotel, running parallel to Hastings Main Road, stopping just short of Coconut Court.
Not only does the boardwalk run side by side to the beautiful turquoise sea and white sand, but it has also been complimented with strategically planned view points and landscaped gardens, to let you enjoy the views of the South Coast and the incredible sunsets.
The multi million dollar project has brought new life to the area, linking hotels and apartments, local restaurants and bars. The boardwalk opened in December 2008 and is being used by tourists and locals, either walking to the beach or local businesses, or simply utilizing the new facility to exercise, meet up with friends and enjoy the views.

Guestbook comments from the manager
What can i say....we stayed in lower swanage for 14 nights and it was everything we expected and wanted.Promtly greeted at the airport by Rodney our taxi driver,organised by Tina the property manager, taken straight to the appartment where we were met by Tina and her husband Philip.A quick run through the workingsof the appartment and straight onto the balcony for a well derseved Rum whilst watching the sun go down.
The appartment is very clean and well maintained, open the balcony doors and the beach is right there and only seven metres to the water.During our stay we wanted to hire a car and take a boat trip, one phone call to Tina and all was sorted and organsised for us.
As mentioned in other reviews, the beach is very small, but if you want to go somewhere else to soak up the sun, there are plenty of bigger beaches within 5 mins walk.There are plenty of shops within walking distance and a supermarket just a short Van ride away.
If I had to find anything negative to say(which is difficult) it would be that the sun beds provided could do with being upgraded and a new coffee maker is needed!
In all a perfect place to stay and chill out, we have already booked for next year and carnt wait to return!!
