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.

Most positive experience

  • 5 of 5

As a renter, reserving through VRBO with Rod and Wanda was quite excellent. All aspects were taken care of and their home was very well kept. Even the support staff was welcoming.

The premises were ideal for an older couple who looks for respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

In conclusion, in the realm of a VRBO reservation, we are entirely satisfied . We only wish we could return with absolute certainty, but we understand that return-renters have priority.

In the hope we can do business again in the near future, thank you for a wonderful experience .

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

The condominium was in beautiful grounds, very clean, and had most things we needed, but it did not have a safe, and did not have any long mirrors, only the mirrors in the bathrooms.The manager was not always around when we needed her, but when she was there was very helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Kay, Thank you for your review! It was very nice talking with you. Thank you again for your suggestion on the long mirror, its a great idea and we will look at adding one to the ensuite. We have wonderful caring staff at Margate and they look after us and our guests so well. They also look after all the other owners and guests and unfortunately can't be available right away all the time. We are so happy that you had another great vacation in Barbados and we hope that you will come back again soon. Warm memories, Rod and Wanda

Spacious, well equipped and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Such a convenient base close to shops, banks, restaurants and the beach. Buses to pretty much everywhere from 30 seconds down the road and an allocated parking space.

The property itself is well maintained with a gorgeous central view of the pool and beautiful gardens and that luxurious long balcony! What a way to enjoy morning coffee and an aperitif at sunset!! Very comfy beds and everything you could want in the kitchen to prepare meals as you would at home. We felt very safe, comfortable and very much at home.

Rod was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and security deposit was returned promptly. We spent more on this holiday than we normally would but the accommodation (and the island) definitely delivered. Now we can't wait to return! I wish I could visit Barbados every year. Sadly, with the pound as low as it is, I think it will be a long time before we can afford to return but if/when we do, this condo is my first choice accommodation.

Thanks so much Rod and Wanda for opening up your beautiful home. It was a central part of us really enjoying our first ever proper family holiday. We'll never forget it. In fact I hope we will be back in the not too distant future. Fingers crossed!!

Another perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second visit to this condo, and I am thinking about booking my third year in a row! First, it is very clean and well maintained. We ate every day on site, there is nothing missing: pots, utensils, can opener, coffee maker, etc. The place is secure and the staff is very friendly.

The highlight of the condo is of course its location, the sea is on the other side of the street, close by. The board walk is beautiful for walking or jogging in the morning. There is a small grocery store the Imart open till 10pm every day. The massy and the Trimart are also nearby for a bigger grocery store. The island is really beautiful, I can not wait to go back. We loved it ! Go there without hesitation it is a small treasure!!!
