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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sitting here on our last day, listening it the bells of the nearby church chime 7:00 am with the back-drop of soothing ocean waves as I sip on my morning coffee pondering all the blessings that I have. This is our 6th visit to the island of Barbados and our 2nd time staying with Tina and Philip at their Beachgate property. Karma and good fate brought me here last year and will never again stay anywhere else. I pack up to leave, and I am rejuvenated, ready to face the day-to-day trials of our life back in Ottawa ... For another year at least :) Should good fortune bring you to this listing, do not hesitate, as you will not be disappointed. There is not one thing I could find fault with this lovely home away from home. The accommodations are well represented in the photos. You are close enough to everything you may need and yet far enough away to find peace in watching the world go by around you. In fact, in the last week I have wandered no further than a 10 minute walk in either direction to find our evening meals, when I chose not to cook. Barbados is an island rich in history. Once you get a Bajan to smile they radiate friendship and goodwill. Getting off the well beaten tourist tracks you will see beauty all around you. Unfortunately for you, dear reader, I have booked this accommodation for years to come, as my oasis of tranquility the first two weeks of every February. Not only have I found a place to lay my weary head, I have the honor of calling my hosts friends. Tina and Philip are gems and I thank them for all that they have done to ensure our vacation is nothing short of perfect.

Upper Swanage is GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Three of us stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment at Upper Swanage. It was as advertised and more. The beach is right in front and swimmable with easy access for children and for those who want to swim a bit further. The breakwater in front is made of rocks, and little fishies live there, so you can even snorkel right there. Many amenities are short walk away including a couple of resorts with beachside restaurants and bars, and the new Hastings Boardwalk. The apartment itself had everything we needed and more. Tina and Phillip were always at the ready to help, and the owners who happened to be next door at the same time were so wondefully friendly. High marks, indeed!

An EXCELLENT Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Beachgate was perfect for my family. It was large and roomy. The veiw was breathtaking. I have two teenagers, and they loved the fact they could jump in the ocean mere feet from our door.
All of our needs were met-Philip and Tina arranged the taxi to the house; Tina was there to greet us, and they had even left fruit for us. They gave us many pointers that were definitely needed.
I would highly recommend this place if you are planning a visit to Barbados. It is close to Bridgetown, the airport, as well as great places to eat.
A comfortable place, cool atmosphere, great managers. What more can you ask for.

Beautiful house, beautiful location makes for a perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5
The photographs of Lower Beachgate don't do it justice - you miss the sound of the waves, the hot sunshine and the cool breezes! Everyone ( owners as well as Tina and Philip) was very pleasant and easy to talk to. The house is private, quiet and very clean. So relaxing to be in your "own" place. Nice to open the doors and sit out on the patio with your morning coffee. Perfect location - we went snorkeling every day and would finish off our "beaching" with a dip in the pool. The boardwalk is great for a run or a stroll - or even to sit and visit with others. Some grocery shopping is nearby; the larger store is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk. Word of advice: pay the money for an extra suitcase and load it with food - packaged/tinned- as food costs are high. Rent a car for a day and explore the island - the contrasts between the coasts is amazing. People are very good about directions if you are lost. We would definitely like to come back here or to its sister property beside it.

Much appreciated. 4 girls stayed there and was perfect with two bedrooms and two large bathrooms! great location and just amazingly beautiful, did not want to leave and definitely would look at booking there again! Thanks.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Lower Beachgate from December 5th to 15th and it was an absolutely perfect spot. The house is well appointed and the photos shown are extremely accurate, and if anything do not do justice to how beautiful a spot this really is. We spent many days and nights strolling down the boardwalk and exploring. There are all sorts of amenities in close proximity and Tina and Phil were terrific hosts and gave us loads of great advice. All of the folks we met on the island were fantastic and provided us with many great memories. Usually by the end of our vacation we are missing home and our family but this time it was really hard to have our last breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean. We will definitely be returning to Barbados and Lower Beachgate in the future.
