Overview

Hastings Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartments.

Facing the ocean, Beachgate lies on the vibrant south coast in Hastings, just west of the popular Boardwalk. Approaching this charming architect-designed villa, you are amazed to discover it opens up into two large apartments, the upper a 3 bedroom en-suite, the lower, two bedrooms en-suite. Both are tastefully furnished, with spacious, open-plan living/dining areas that flow out onto large verandahs.

Steps from your door lies the ocean. There’s always the constant sound of the sea, an unforgettable view, and the gentle rustle of trade winds in the Coconut trees. You can sit on the wide stretch of beach, swim and snorkel in the protected lagoon (perfect for kids) or the more adventurous can surf or snorkel the barrier reef just beyond.

If sand and sea are not really your thing, relax and sip a drink by the pool which is shared by both units. Whether to unwind, go for a nearby adventure, treat your taste buds or explore local culture, Beachgate is perfectly suited. Most of our guests choose not to rent a car as everything is close by!

Step out onto the beach. Turn left and you can walk on the boardwalk to the spectacular Rockley beach, aka Accra beach, with its famous ultra fine white sand where locals and tourists mix. Turn right and stroll along the peaceful coast towards the famous Hil-ton beach. Back at Beachgate, you will take with you a lasting memory of the sun sinking into the horizon, and as you sit cocktail in hand, you may even see the elusive green flash.

For foodies:

There are three great dining choices on the boardwalk, Blakey’s, Tapas, and Naru with a half dozen others within walking distance. Also be sure to catch the Saturday farmer’s market opposite Blakey’s from 9AM to 1PM for your typical local Barbadian produce and crafts.

For shoppers:

It’s a short walk to Lanterns mall, a great stop for groceries and general supplies, a pharmacy, health food store, Haagen Das ice cream, and tasty local and foreign food alternatives for those looking for a quick meal.

For duty free shoppers:

There are duty free shops in Worthing, five minutes by local bus or take a ten minute ride to Bridgetown. On Broad Street you will find fine jewellery shops, Cave Shepherd, a large department store, and other shops. For a great local shopping experience visit bustling Swan Street.

For history buffs:

There’s the Hastings Historic District and storied Garrison area of Barbados. It is the location of the Old Colonial Officers Quarters and Army Hospital. The Savannah comprises the main military guard buildings, with beautiful Victorian architecture complete with a large collection of old cannons, the Barbados Turf Club (Horse Racing), the historical museum, and a vast open sports area for rugby, soccer, cricket, all surrounded by walking and running tracks.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Upper Beachgate is a fabulous place to stay. The property was beautiful, the kitchen well equipped and out hosts, Tina and Phil, were the best! Tina suggested a Catamaran cruise (which she kindly booked for us) and it was one of the best tours I've been on. The sun is strong in Barbados, so it was a treat to discover the pool is in the afternoon shade. It is also very easy to get around the island. We (6 of us) hired a cab for the day. The grocery stores are very accommodating and have courtesy shuttles back to your cottage. Staying at Upper Beachgate was everything we expected and more!

The absolute best place to stay in Barbados. Believe the pictures. The place is better still. Right on the water. People walk by on the beach and look up at us eating dinner, playing cards or just enjoying and you see on their faces they wish they had this place to stay. Very open and has everything you need. Went in the ocean and pool everyday. People on the island are great and the fresh seafood is outstanding. You can find so many ways to get around the island and exploring is fun. Great beaches close by and turtles in the water everyday. The house has everything and you won't be disappointed, Tina will make sure of that. Great people. We stayed 10 days and almost stayed another week. It is that good. Will go back. Worth the long trip from the west coast. Stay here. You will love it.

My family and I spent two wonderful weeks at Upper Beachgate in Feb this year (2014). We have a 2 year old who settled in immediately. The villa is large and airy and exactly how the pictures depict. It is very conveniently located with lots of bars, restaurants and a lovely farmer's market every Saturday. I can't recommend this villa enough just to say that I have already booked again for next year!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5
Six of us(3 couples) visited Upper Beachgate in June of this year and loved it. Tina and Philip are excellent, very attentive caretakers. The house is kept very clean and functional and the porch has a beautiful view.
The water directly in front of the house is a little rocky, but there is a sandy lagoon in front of Swanage(next door).
The porch has a big gas grill, so hop on the #11(the house is right on the route), head down to the Oistins Fish Market, and buy right off the boat Mahi Mahi for $3 US per pound. Marinate in a little Delish Bajan seasoning, and wash the whole thing down with a Banks. We also ate at the stalls at Oistins many times during our stay(our favorite is Uncle George's). Every stall has pretty good fish and 3 for $10($5 US) Banks beer.
Also be sure to visit Coconut Court(a few doors down to the right) for happy hour. The drinks are cheap and Antonio is the best bartender on the island.
There is a surf shop across the street that not only rents boards, but will also give you a ride over to a good break.
There is a supermarket down the street(short van ride, but they have a courtesy shuttle that will bring you back) and also an iMart convenience store within walking distance that has a surprisingly good amount of food items.
As stated before, the house is right on the #11 route(small white van with a purple-ish stripe down the side). Taxi's are very expensive on the island, so if you're not super high maintenance, jump on the #11. It goes back and forth along the South coast to and from Bridgetown, and is only $2 BDS to ride. Get cozy with some locals and enjoy the ride.
We look forward to visiting again. Tina and Philip, thank you for everything!

Surf/Swim/Stay Paradise For All Generations

  • 5 of 5
I keep dreaming about our stay in Barbados -- the gorgeous views from the veranda, the perfect swimming beach ocean alcove out front, the amazing sunset views, the pristine pool, and the best pina colada ever down the boardwalk. Add to that the fish fry, boardwalk restaurants (TAPAS), catamaran cruise, etc. My 70+ year old parents were in heaven, my 40+ surfer husband walked to a great break twice a day, my 11-13 kids went from pool to beach all day and I could relax and enjoy it all. Loved the food and proximity to everything. Loved the wonderfully appointed house and our very friendly and attentive hosts, Tina and Philip. Thank you!!! Can't wait to come back. - Wendy and Martin

Dream Property

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four had more than enough space. The interior is bright and cheerful. We were worried about being so close to the street, but with the windows closed and the A/C on at night the only sound was the local church bell chiming at the top of the hour. The pool and grounds are well-kept. To get onto the property from the street or beach, a code is used to unlock the door, so it feels safer. Location is fabulous to get to the best beaches. The ocean and the Gap Boardwalk are steps away. We saw turtles in the water. The waves are such that snorkeling is a bit rough. Better at higher tides. We took several walks down to Rockley Beach to play in the waves and eat at the Tiki Bar. Renting a car we were able to see much more of the island (and get to the bigger grocery store). In the evening, we could drive over to St. Lawrence Gap for all of the restaurants and not worry about walking home in the dark. We also drove up to the Wildlife Refuge and St. Nicholas Abbey (loved both!). Stoutes Car Rental delivered the car to the house and was flexible when we asked for extra days. Tina and Philip were attentive knowledgeable hosts. We love this property and love Barbados!!!
