Isham and the owner, Carl, were very accommodating. The Plum was not available for our first night, so they let us stay in Jamoon and gave us an overall discount for the inconvenience of having to move.
Once we arrived, Carl came to meet us at a nearby restaurant to help us navigate to the place.
The setting is an old walled plantation that Carl has developed into a collection of apartments. The yard and overall atmosphere is very relaxing.
The inside of both the Jamoon and Plum are even better decorated than their photos would indicate. We were quite happy our stay.
Karibu Gardens is located one block from the Caribbean Sea in Hastings, Barbados. It's an eclectic collection of apartments on an attractive, flower-filled property.
Our two bedroom apartment, the Lime, was spacious, clean,
and comfortable. A well equipped kitchen, a patio, WiFi, and extra linen and towels, were welcome additions. Carl our host, was easy going and very helpful. The other guests were friendly and fun to
We thought it was good value and are hoping to return.
We stayed at the lime in karibu gardens. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Carl was very welcoming and accommodating. The apartment was clean and spacious. The bells from the church didn't wake me up, and hearing the music quietly coming from the church was nice!
We ended up staying in the Cherry rather than the Cassia and it was really very lovely. Carl met us from our taxi and showed us round, he was very welcoming and even left a couple of cold beers in the fridge for us which was much appreciated after our journey! We were given loads of information about what was in the local area and Carl couldn't have been more helpful - everything we asked him, he sorted out for us! I can't stress enough how lovely and welcoming he was!
The Cherry is a very nice apartment, large with nice furniture and very comfortable. The little garden was great and a very nice place to sit and enjoy a bottle of beer and an evening meal.
Karibu Gardens is in a fantastic location, at the end of the road is a nice quite beach and the beginning of the wonderful board walk which takes you past a number of nice places to eat and/ or drink (Blakey's was our favourite and the closest) all the way down to Accra Beach which is the best beach on the South Coast. You can get a bus to Bridgetown or Oistins from the end of the road too, so the location was just perfect.
Karibu Gardens is a lovely place to stay, there are a number of apartments within it and some pretty gardens that are nice to sit in and enjoy a book. It felt very safe and friendly and it was great to have the dogs around too! We really enjoyed our stay and are so grateful to Carl and his family for being so welcoming and helpful. Wonderful place!
Ishma and Carl welcomed us to Barbados in the lovely Karibu Gardens grounds. The 1BR cottage was even bigger than it appeared, fully stocked kitchen, and comfortable common space. Carl even woke up early to meet us at 4am when our flight arrived.
The location is a 10min walk to the center of Hastings, another 10mins to popular Accra beach. 10mins in the other direction to the Garrison/racetrack area. Very easy location.
Be aware that the bells from St Matthias Church across the street will wake you up promptly at 6am with a soothing jingle. They ring every hour during the day. Good motivation to start your day early.
Amazing experience overall, we could not have been more happy with the accommodation provided for us at the karibu. Carl and Ishma were the best hosts we could have asked for and are very informative for information about the island, where to go, beaches, where to shop etc. the room itself was perfect for us, the cassia is well equipped for an adventurer's needs. Private beach (almost private as hardly anyone uses it) is literally a minute walk away, close to all the bus routes, the shopping center lantern's mall for food and other misc items. Highly recommended for a traveler looking for a reasonable, clean, friendly environment. The dogs are a plus too for animal lovers! We would stay again for sure!
Nice and historic , beautiful garden with birds , friendly dogs with a few barks at night ( doing their job ! ) peaceful and inspiring area ,specially with the old church across the street !
A block away from the boardwalk with beaches and restaurants of course !
Thank you Karl .

Carl and Jennifer were wonderful hosts. There was a mix up with which apartment we were suppose to be in and they went above and beyond to fix everything. They were very responsive to any questions we had. The property is well maintained as well as the apartments. The beach is a block away as well as a boardwalk to other beaches. A perfect place to come and decompress. I highly recommend Karibu Gardens and look forward to visiting in the future!
The Lime - 2 bedroom apartment was exactly what we wanted. Comfortable and close to the boardwalk and beaches, a short walk to stores and restaurants, and near the main bus route and taxis to Bridgetown and the south and west coasts. Our hosts, Jennifer and Carl were the best. Friendly, always available and ready to help any time such as arranging use of a local cell phone or finding a car rental for the peak holiday season, they were a big part of our enjoyable three week stay in Barbados.
Nice location, accommodations and people. Thanks!
