Upper Beachgate is a beautifully appointed, tastefully furnished 3-bed/3-bath apartment on a white sandy beach in Hastings.

The space

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.

Upper Beachgate was a wonderful vacation home for our family. Tina answered all our questions pre-trip and she and Phillip met us on arrival and were excellent hosts. They even stopped in on Christmas Eve to bring us Christmas cookies. The Gardner and cleaning ladies they have for the property also do a great job. The house location for us was great. We could walk to several places but also used a rental car to explore the island. The view from the verandah is amazing. We really enjoyed our stay.

Philip was at the house when we arrived w a 6 pack of local brew ready. We were there just as Tropical Storm Matthew was coming to Barbados and he gave us info on what to expect and any cautionary info to note. The location is beautiful & situated very close to shopping and restaurants. It is also a short Z cab ride to Bridgetown for even more local shopping. I could wake up at Upper Beachgate every day for the rest of my life. We can't wait to return, we met the couple staying in the lower section of the house and they've been coming to Barbados for over 40 years! Thank you Philip & Tina for a wonderful experience! ~The Valentines

This is a great flat on the south coast of Barbados. The flat is spacious, well equipped and has an amazing view from the living area and master bedroom. You can't be closer to a great beach and with a pool as well you are spoilt for choice. Philip and Tina are great hosts. They met us as expected and then gave us complete privacy throughout our stay except when we asked things of them, at which point they gave great service.

Upper Beachgate is beautiful, the pictures are right on! Open and bright with a lovely breeze. We felt very safe and secure during the day and night. The cold Banks Beer waiting for us on arrival hit the spot just right. The beach out front is amazing, we counted 8 turtles at one time. Bring water shoes to explore the rocky areas. We snorkeled out front and the fish along the reef are awe-inspiring. The location is great, walking distance to many fantastic restaurants. Highly recommend Blakey's! We took the bus many times (even braved the Ragea bus!) into Bridgetown and to St. Lawence Gap. Our hosts, Phillip and Tina, were unbelievable. They made us feel very welcomed. They were only a phone call away and had many great suggestions for restaurants, groceries and attractions. They helpfully arranged for an airport pick up and drop off , removing that stress from us. We highly recommend Upper Beachgate, 10/10!!!!! Can't wait to return

If anything, the pictures do not do this listing justice. Is there a better balcony on Airbnb? Every morning, it was a joy to open the curtains to reveal the waves of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea lapping up against the secluded beach. (Turtle-spotting at high tide quickly became a favorite activity.) Similarly, it was such a pleasure to sit there in the evening as we listened to the waves, the crickets and the frogs serenade us. The open plan layout of the kitchen, dining room and living room made for a wonderfully sociable experience, whilst the three air-conditioned en suite bedrooms allowed for comfort and privacy. Other excellent facilities included the swimming pool and the BBQ. Man-made rock-walls along the shore allowed for easy, family-friendly swimming and snorkeling. The location was excellent, with easy access by public transport (white mini-buses) to the many restaurants and bars along the south coast. Philip both welcomed us (with a six-pack of beer!) and saw us out, whilst Tina was quick to respond to any questions we had via the Airbnb messaging system. She even phoned us to make sure that we were having an enjoyable stay. All in all, it is difficult to imagine a better experience on Airbnb!

Upper Beachgate is a beautiful escape! I planned a vacation for my parents, sister, and aunt - as my parents have never really had a proper vacation... ever! My previous visit to Barbados made me want to share this beautiful island and it's people with them. So a trip was booked and I looked up this gem of a house. The view can't be matched as the beach is literally right outside, with the boardwalk that connects you to some nice restaurants and amenities only a few yards to the left (if looking out from the balcony towards the sea). If you're looking for some outside that's not on the beach, the pool is a nicely partially shaded area where you can relax. The place has 3 bedrooms, one master with a large (california?) king size bed, and two rooms with 2 beds in each of them. This place will comfortably sleep 6 people. Air conditioning is only within the bedrooms which isn't a problem for the living/dining area if you have a nice breeze flowing through. Warning, Barbados is near to the equator... it's going to be hot! Philip & Tina were gracious hosts who arranged us with a driver from the airport to the house. We were flying in relatively late, so they were kind enough to provide us with enough for breakfast the following morning to get us through. We really appreciated that. All in all, it's a beautiful place and our hosts were great! You won't be disappointed.

This house was fabulous. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a pool and an incredible view of the beach. Tina and Phillip are gracious hosts and were available whenever we needed them (which wasn't that much). The home is centrally located which gave us easy access to what we needed. We were 100 feet from the Boardwalk. You can't beat that.
