Stunning beach-front villa with pool
from £184 /night help
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Beachgate is a beautifully appointed, tastefully furnished property in Hastings just to the West of the popular South Coast Boardwalk. It consists of a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom upper unit and a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom lower unit.
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 Hilton 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.

The Christ Church Parish region
Christ Church has some of the best beaches on the island. It also is home to St. Lawrence Gap, the principal area of entertainment in Barbados. There are two golf courses and a horse racing track in Christ Church. You can snorkel on the wrecks in Carlisle Bay and see lots of fish - and often turtles. There is a jogging track at the Garrison which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Many restaurants and bars are located nearby. There are many others services such as surfing, scuba-diving, sports fishing and boat charters located in Christ Church.
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.
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.

This place is great if you are staying in Barbados with a family or a group of friends, just make sure you bag the master bedroom. With views of the sea and the sound of the waves, this place truly is paradise. With the added bonus of swimming with turtles.
The location is perfect. Accessible from the main road into Bridgetown, so you're never far from the local buses that cost $2 per person to get anywhere.
We stayed in the upper beachgate, while others rented the lower at the same time. This meant that we had the pool and beach access to ourselves and didn't have to share with others. This is something that I would again recommend if you require 5 beds or more.
Tina and Phil are nothing but helpful and always on hand if you need anything from a taxi, to hot sauce for the cooking, they'll point you in the right direction.
Would highly recommend this location, for a fun filled Bajan holiday!
