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 had a fabulous time at Grand Hibiscus!!!
PERFECT....location, well equipped accommodation, comfy beds, lovely pool oasis to enjoy, terrific restaurants across the street, the Boardwalk across the street by the ocean and walks that continue forever on the coast.

Great condo in perfect location

Everything was perfect from start to finish. The owners Rod & Wanda are completely reliable so there is no need to worry about your holiday turning into a nightmare. We were two couples so the layout of the condo was just right with the living/dining/kitchen area in the middle with the bedrooms and bathrooms on either side. We bought groceries at the Super B so we cooked our own breakfasts which we enjoyed out on the large deck. Also enjoyed our happy hours there as well. There was always a nice breeze so no need for air conditioning during the day. At night we enjoyed the air-conditioning in the bedrooms while sleeping on extremely comfortable beds. Slept better here than at home!! The Wi-Fi also worked perfectly which was good for our husbands to keep in touch with their offices! Rockley beach was our favorite which was about a 10 minute walk. We always brought along the beach chairs, boogie boards and coolers so there was no need to rent anything. We decided to rent a car even though you could manage quite well without. We explored the island and enjoyed the small town of Bathsheba as well as St. Nicholas Abby where we were able to watch them crushing the sugar cane. Also purchased their award winning rum! There were plenty of good restaurants within walking distance and we also drove to St Lawrence Gap and tried a few restaurants there as well. Food was always great! The people of Barbados were so friendly and communication was always easy. For those of you who need to eat gluten-free, there is a gluten free deli just down the street! They serve breakfast and lunch and the food was great! After exploring much of the island we still felt we made the best choice and would stay here again for sure!
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us a review of your vacation!
Accra beach is such a great spot to hang out for the day. It has something for everyone. You can do nothing but soak up the sun or play in the surf or snorkel on the reef. There are many places to eat close by as well and its just a quick walk to the condo. Go for a dip in the pool and then freshen up for a night out on the south coast! It sounds like you found the perfect balance of sight seeing and relaxation while in Barbados.
Please come back and stay with us again!
Warm memories,
The Biggs family

Nous étions 2 couples (Michel a d'ailleurs laissé ses impressions et je suis tout à fait d'accord avec lui) et tout était parfait Le Condo est exceptionnel tout équipé de A a Z (Les propriétaires ont pensé à TOUT) l'endroit est Sécuritaire on se sent chez soi. Un jardin magnifique avec piscine privée pour le site à condos, une plage à couper le souffle a quelques minutes de marche sur le bordwalk qui est de l'autre côté de la rue du site, mini centre d'achat et restaurant à porter de main. Moi et mon conjoint nous sommes promis d'y retourner ce fût notre premier voyage a vie et nous n'en sommes pas déçu, loin de là nous y rêvons encore ...............
Owner's Response: Merci pour votre merveilleuse revue de vos vacances!
Nous sommes très heureux que vous vous sentiez à la maison et fait tant de bons souvenirs.
Nous nous réjouissons de vous accueillir à nouveau dans l'avenir!

Fabulous

My husband and I would like to thank Rod and Wanda for allowing us to stay in there piece of paradise for 6 weeks. They were excellent to work with and answered all of our questions quickly. The pictures represent the condo and grounds perfectly. We loved starting our mornings walking the boardwalk and being able to walk along side the sea. The sand is white and the ocean so blue. We loved the balcony, it is so large. We never dined inside and ate our meals overlooking the pool and gardens and sea. There are 4 beach chairs, beach umbrella and boogie boards, sand toys and 2 beach coolers which come in handy when getting groceries. We saw monkeys 3 times in our gardens and playing on the buildings here. We also saw 4 green parrots from the balcony on several occasions. We loved it here.There is an ocean view from the balcony. The maid was lovely as we're the gardeners who work constantly to keep everything looking so beautiful. We had 2 other couples that I work with that were in Barbados at the same time and came over for happy hour and were very impressed with the condo and grounds. Natalie the on site manager was very friendly and available at all times. We love Barbados and the people are gracious and friendly. We visited many restaurants that Rod and Wanda recommended. We really enjoyed Cafe Luna,Champers,Bistro Munet,Shakers and Cuz's fish shack for a fish cutter. You do not need to rent a car as you are able to walk to many restaurants and there is Lanterns Mall next door which is more like a plaza with a convenience store as well. The bus or ZR bus are only 2BBD and they pass often. Wine World which is across from Accra Hotel sells wine and beer and if you buy it by the case there is a reduced rate. You can also take your beer bottles back there as well. There is an elevator in this building as well which comes in handy on arrival and departure day. It was generally peaceful, quiet and serene and loved the beautiful Grand Hibiscus. Do not hesitate to book it is wonderful. Thanks once again to Rod and Wanda.

We would stay at Margate Gardens again. Rod and Wanda were very helpful in setting up the reservation and answering any questions about the property and the services within the vicinity. Natalie provided a warm welcome and made the long day of travel a little easier. The condo is very easy to find thanks to simple instructions from the rental car agent. The complex is very clean and the pictures show the interior of the condo very well. The balcony and the teak furniture is a huge plus. The air conditioning units are very quiet, efficient and cool off the room within a half hour. The other families at the complex were polite and one of the residents, who is a long-time resident of Barbados, apologized for the first two days having an overcast afternoon. The condo is across the street from Tapas restaurant, which is the best in the area. Blakey's is also good for the oceanfront Caribbean bar. There is also Mama Mia's, which is within walking distance, and an option for authentic Italian food. Naru had great food, but really bad service. Champers was closed due to construction and renovation for, what looked like, a big expansion. While there is an iMart in the mall next door, a car is recommended for the Super B grocery store. Bridgetown, Crane Beach, Miami Beach and the eastern/western coasts of the island are all worth a visit. The modern boardwalk across the street is maintained throughout the week and provides a beautiful walk along the shore. Rockley Beach, at the eastern end of the boardwalk, has a few guys that rent sets of beach chairs. Two chairs and an umbrella for 30 Barbados dollars, all day, is a great deal. If you are there for peak season, get there by 10 am for a good spot on the beach and the parking lot. The coolers in the condo were a nice addition for the trip to the beach. We already look forward to returning to Hastings. The warm weather and sun was quickly missed when we returned to snow and near zero temperatures in New York. Thank you.
