Welcome to Grand Hibiscus Barbados!

Enjoy relaxing with your loved ones on the huge balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and pool with views of the sea.

Our condo is just steps away from the beach, dining and all amenities.

Located on the south coast in Hastings, Christ Church, you are in the best location for experiencing Barbados. The Barbados Boardwalk is right across the street which ends at the popular Rockley (Accra) beach.

Within walking distance you will find a variety of dining from Subway, KFC to sports bars, to five star restaurants. All major banks, plenty of shopping and full grocery stores are a short walk away.

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 hope you agree that this beautiful condo in this perfect location will give you lasting memories and a desire to visit again and again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rod & Wanda, Just wanted to drop you a line to say that we had a wonderful stay in your condo at Margate Gardens . My parents and I found the accommodations and property to be exactly as advertised and everyone from the maintenance workers and gardeners (who worked tirelessly) to Natalie were very helpful and friendly. Please let your gardeners know that all our visitors enjoyed the beautifully landscaped grounds. Back in the 70s when it was a hotel my wife and I stayed at Margate, so I was familiar with the convenient location of this property. Your condo is fully equipped, very well decorated, and we were impressed to see that you took such care to ensure that just about everything was provided for in the unit. We were especially impressed with the internet connectivity which allowed us to use our magic jack to keep in touch with home. Thanks again and I hope we will have the opportunity to avail ourselves of your hospitality again in the near future.

Outstanding vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

There is little more I can say that hasn't already been expressed, but I will try!

From the moment we walked through the front gate onto the grounds of Margate Gardens we were smitten! The grounds are a lush tropical retreat that immediately puts the mind into a zen like state. It's a little piece of paradise on one of the best islands. The condo itself was also outstanding. Nicely decorated, clean and refreshing. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable that I my sleep was not interrupted in the least. TV had many channels but quite frankly, we didn't have it on all that often.

The balcony is a magical place! So well furnished, over looking the gardens and pool. We spent our mornings and evenings on it, enjoying our morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and evening dinner! The location couldn't be better if you decide to go without renting a vehicle. The local buses are a breeze to take and many local restaurants are within walking distance. We did visit several of them - Tapas, Chutney's, Akee's (the absolute best Roti!). We were lucky to meet up with a local resident and he was gracious with his time taking us around to the local coffee house at the Garrison. The food was outstanding (Barbados Coffee house) and if you get an opportunity to visit it you won't be disappointed.

We had no issues during our stay. Everything was in perfect working order. I've rented many many homes and by far this one is tops! The Barbados itself is enchanting and Margate Gardens is a homey, comfortable piece of Barbados. Rod and Wanda were fabulous to work with. We'll be back!

Great Find, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

I meant to write this review a while ago. We booked this condo as a last minute booking due to an emergency. The price was very fair. The Biggs were so accommodating during this time. We were extremely happy when we arrived and saw that the condo was immaculate & well maintained. It is like a contained garden oasis, so serene. It is in a gated community which we loved & made us feel safer. Both bedrooms are air conditioned & air conditioners work well. There is a large balcony overlooking the garden & the pool. We did not use the pool. We did encounter a slight plumbing issue that was hastily fixed when we contacted the owner. Across the street is the beach, down the road is a strip mall with a number of great places to eat in addition to a higher end restaurant across the street(can't recall the name)within walking distance. The pictures on the site are correct. This is a central location in the city. buses & taxis are readily available. We will definately look into staying here again if the property is available for our next visit

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Rod and Wanda's beautiful condo. There is so much we love about their place!

The location is ideal - next door to the Lantern Mall with its great shopping and eateries; the proximity to the famous south coast Boardwalk; across the road from the highly rated Tapas restaurant and a stones throw to the lovely twice weekly Hastings farmers market.

The condomitselfmhas been well maintained and is well equipped. The new living room furnishings are beautiful and comfortable and the new keypad lock is a real plus. The kitchen has everything you need to "cook in" which is what we love to do and then enjoy our meal on the spacious patio overlooking the beautiful pool and lush gardens. The beds - a king and a queen- are very comfortable ( with memory foam toppers) and ensure a good nights sleep. There are ample good quality linens and towels supplied in the unit as well. We really appreciate the beach chairs which take with us every day to the nearby Accra beach which saves $$ on rentals on the beach.

Jamella the property manager is very accessible and promptly addresses any questions or concerns about the condo. Nakita does a wonderful job maintaining the cleanliness of the unit weekly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and returned rested and renewed and look forward to our return in 2017.

Thanks so much Rod and Wanda for sharing your little piece of paradise with us again.

Very Nice & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. Clean, roomy, comfortable & beautiful. Everyone was very nice & helpful.

Barbados was interesting & fun to explore. We liked the Bliss Cafe for breakfast, & the Surfer's Cafe for lunch. The boardwalk was nice.

My husband & I are ready to come back!

Our overall impression is an unreserved five stars

  • 5 of 5

When we booked the property we needed a comfortable apartment a short distance from the Barbados Yacht Club as we were participating in an international sailing competition. Grand Hibiscus, Barbados proved to be an excellent choice. It is spacious, clean and very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and laundry. Being a short bus ride from the yacht club and just accross the road from the beach, board walk and an excellent Tapas restaurant gave us all the comfort and convenience we sought. The small shoppping area nearby was useful for its convenience store and bank.

We really enjoyed the balcony area, which over looks a beautiful garden and swimming pool, for eating and relaxing. The frequent visits of the finches and humming birds enhanced this enjoyment. The spacious living areas and bedrooms with large comfortable beds meant that we always slept well, even in the heat of Barbados.

Although near to the Yacht Club and Bridgetown we enjoyed using the variety of bus and taxi transport. The crowded mini buses were our usual preference as it gave the opportunity to engage with the ever-friendly locals.

The only problem we encountered during our staywas high winds which challenged the yachts but cooled those left on the shore. We simply had a wonderful stay in the apartment and Barbados. A big thanks to Rod and Wanda for letting us use their lovely apartment and to the West Indies test cricketer who gave us a lift when we got lost in the north of the island.
