My husband and I have been staying a Lower Beachgate every year since 2011.
This is a well appointed 2-bedroom apartment with everything you could possibly need or want. The location is perfect. A quiet beach, a short walk from many lively beach/bar areas in any direction. The best of both worlds.
Located, at the northern end of the boardwalk I enjoy my morning walk - early to beat the heat - along with many tourists and locals. We don't rent a car - don't need it. We can walk everywhere from Beachgate, and the local transportation at $2 BDS is the best way to get anywhere.
Over the years Tina and Philip have reinvested in the property and continue to upgrade and often take our comments and suggestions and make them reality. They really care about their guests and have helped us out of numerous tricky situations. Just a phone call away.
Being that we go every year, we walk off the plane and feel at ease and relaxed. Arriving at Beachgate that first day we are reunited with our goods friends - Tina and Philip - and instantly feel the stress of Canadian Winters melt away.
I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Even during the recent 'sewage' challenges, we were not impacted in the least and would never have considered cancelling.
If you are lucky enough to get a booking at this property, you will have the most amazing vacation on the most friendly island in the Caribbean.
Really easy check in and check out, and the pool is nice and cool for those hot days. Perfect spot for boardwalk walking, and lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance or a short bus ride. Thanks Phillip and Tina!
I have just returned home from staying at Lower Beachgate and feel compelled to tell everyone about this amazing place! We stayed in the lower apartment with access direct to the beach. The apartment is so beautifully situated and presented. It just feels like a very comfortable home waiting for you to arrive! It is very well appointed and I could not think of anything that we could need that wasn't already provided! Tina does a magnificent job in looking after her guests and it is sad to be back in my own much less well appointed home! Very very highly recommended.
Beautiful views from this well appointed villa. Great location on the south shore in Hastings, just off the end of the boardwalk, where we could walk to most of our favourite restaurants and bars. Great swimming and snorkeling right in front of the house. Hosts Tina and Phillip were very attentive and helpful. Lower Beachgate was probably the nicest place we have ever stayed in. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for!
This villa was beautiful, airy, clean, so comfortable and pretty. The patio overlooking the beach was so nice, I loved the location in general. The pool was perfect and private, even sharing with upper beachgate. I plan to be back!!

We have just returned after two weeks of blissful holiday at this superbly located and appointed villa. Spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained , the property provides secure privacy with great positioning .Having visited Barbados several times before and stayed in good quality hotels and apartments which were more than satifactory this villa would definitely be our favourite. Many thanks toTina and Philip for their great management providing the holiday paradise that is Beachgate.
This house was sooo adorable -- and so are Tina and Philip!
There are two rentals in the same property -- the lower part, where I stayed with my friend, and the upper part. The entrances are separate, though we shared the laundry room and the pool with the other tenants of the apartment above; actually we never did more than wave at them (a family) though we coincided for several days. We managed to be alone in the pool and never crossed in the laundry room.
Lower beachgate is fantastic, there is a large bedroom with French windows looking out into the sea (well, there is a porch with a lovely hammock and loads of huge flowers and hummingbirds first) and ensuite bathroom with plenty of closet space -- and there is another room in the back with two beds and ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. There is also a good living room, looking out onto the porch and sea -- and an open kitchen with all imaginable appliances.
In front the beach is very nice with talcum powder sand and a natural pool that is formed by rocks where you can snorkel. There are beautiful palm/coconut trees and you can see a pretty nice sunset sipping your cocktail. The pool is also very nice with comfortable chairs to lounge on.
Nearby there are malls, coffee shops and restaurants, recommended are Tapas for lunch or dinner and the Japanese one which only opens after 5pm, both of them on the beach.
We stayed two weeks for work and Tina and Philip helped us with things we needed very patiently -- in fact as my friend left I moved to another one of their properties as I needed a smaller place and it's great too.
The house next door from Lower Beachgate is also managed by them and it's also darned cute.
All in all you'll be in good hands with them, their places are tasteful, clean and with a good price, and they are extremely kind hosts. Can't think of a better place if you want to relax in Barbados than Lower Beachgate!
