Reviews:

“What glamour! From the second I arrived, I was floored by the beauty and drama of this intoxicating property. Besides the fact that the villa is situated on an unspeakably exquisite piece of this brilliant island, the layout of the house and its elegant décor put me in a fabulously relaxed frame-of-mind, as though I’d finally been able to realize one of my wildest, most decadent fantasies... as though I’d finally come home to a place of luxurious peace and ultimate inspiration. This villa experience definitely put a big dollop of high style into my life!” Jeanne Beker, Canadian Television Fashion Celebrity

'This truly unique property is a place of stunning natural beauty with breathtaking ocean views. The staff were incredibly friendly and the accommodation was spacious and luxurious. Totally delightful, home away from home, will definitely return.'

Arlene Dickenson, CBC's Dragon's Den

'Our stay couldn't have been better. The house is set in the most idyllic of locations, completely private with a spectacular ocean view yet within easy walking to the busy and fun Crane Hotel complex as well as local restaurants we came to know well. The villa itself is enchanting, beautifully designed and appointed, and obviously carefully maintained. We were also very well looked after by the house manager, Carolyn, who took care of everything from groceries in advance of our arrival, to picking us up at and dropping us back to the airport. We ate in several times thanks to the house cook, who came at our request and served us delicious fare. I can't recommend this villa highly enough for any traveller who is discerning, appreciates privacy but wants the option of exploring as well. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable! We are counting the days til we are back.'

Amanda Lang, CBC News- Lang & O'Leary exchange

Location

Winderemere and Cragmere Villas are ideally located only a 7-minute drive to the airport and within short walking distance to two of the best beaches in Barbados; Crane Beach and Foul Bay. Crane Beach, secluded and full of natural beauty, is considered by many to be one of the island's most beautiful beaches. In fact, it has been rated as:

• 'One of the 10 Best Beaches in the World'… Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

• 'No. 23 in Top 100 Beaches in the World' ...CNN

• “Top 50 Places to Go Before You Die”...BBC’s Holiday Programme

• “Top 25 Sexiest Beaches in the World”…The Travel Channel

• 'Top 10 Beaches Worldwide' - 2013...Destinology

Accessible through the Crane Resort (for example if you buy a meal) or around the resort (about a 10 minute walk) and protected by a natural coral reef, Crane Beach boasts one of the best swimming experiences in Barbados. Besides being very soft sand, Crane Beach is also very safe as it is on a gentle slope and protected by coral reefs. There are also chairs and umbrellas available for rent here.

The Crane Resort, also only a few minutes walk away, is world famous for cuisine and four restaurants and a bar. A 4-block walk takes you to Cutters - an English style Deli with sandwiches, pizza, as well as food and beverages. A 10-minute drive takes you to Emerald City - a large fully stocked American style supermarket.

He has founded several national organizations including AMJ Campbell Van Lines and Premiere Executive Suites. The latest ventures that I am a partner in is Moore Suites, Oceanstone Resort and Crane Villas Barbados.

Some of my favorite travel desinations are Iceland, Norway and Barbados. One of my favorite things about travelling is meeting new people, making new friends and learning about different lifestyles. I also love to learn new things whether it be new food, languages, music or hobbies.

Pink Sand in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our Windermere vacation was unforgettable. Warmly welcomed by Carolyn, our friendly house manager, we had groceries waiting for us and settled right into life in paradise. The house, pool, and daybed overlooking the cove were all clean and beautiful. The cove, unvisited by anyone during our stay but my girlfriend and me, is populated with sand hued pink by breakdown of corals, families of cute little crabs, and stone pillars erupting out of the earth, with the bases eroded from millennia of tidal action shaping them like mushrooms. Barbados, outside the hurricane belt, offered up humid but sunny weather for our August trip, one of the few places we could go at that time of year in the Caribbean with reliable weather. Renting a car with AC for the week was key, day trips around the island, including scuba diving with Peter and Gaird (best scuba team ever!) at West Side Scuba made returning home to Windermere even more delicious. Rented a catamaran for a sunset dinner cruise (epic, Stacey and Nick were the best!), did some fancy dining in Holetown (great dinner options up there, also beautiful area with marine preserves to snorkel at), and fed sea turtles, all in a short week we didn't want to end. Matthew Moore and his team made our experience enjoyable and easy from start to finish. Thanks Matthew and Carolyn!

The Windermere is 2 weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year at the Windermere. We have 2 other couples traveling with us. We love this place!! We like this quite living on the south side next to the Crane. We can hop on the bus stop which is close our villa. We really enjoy eating at Marco Polos and Cutters which are 5-10 minute walk and serve delicious food. We really enjoyed checking out the rugged east coast of the island this year. So beautiful!! The Windermere is perfect for the 6 or 8 of us. Each couple have their own bathrooms, rooms are air conditioned, all king size beds, the clean pool is fabulous. 2 of the bed rooms are on the main floor. Another bedroom is upstairs and another bedroom has about 3 steps going down, so for people who struggle with steps, its great. The kitchen has every thing you need. Carolyn was so helpful in setting up our reservations for a evening dinner cruise and day snorkeling trip, both adventures were 1st class. The Windermere will always be our favorite vacation villa. Hope to come back soon!!

Its Windy

  • 4 of 5

The house is exactly as shown in the website and is beautifully furnished, well maintained and has spectacular views. There is one small problem: the wind never stops blowing and I mean never. I suppose being situated on the top of a cliff overlooking the Atlantic that is to be expected, but we were expecting something a bit more sort of Carribean type of balmy. We drove across to the other side of the island to lie on the beach which is sheltered from the wind, but it was a nuisance and quite a long drive every day. You would definitely need a car. Even the beach next to the hotel was windy so no need to go there. According to the locals it never stops blowing.

The local restaurant was fun. The food in Barbados is wonderful and the people terrific. We will go back, but regrettably not to this property, as magnificent and beautiful as it is.

Cragmere Villa 2 Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Due to weather delays we arrived at our accommodations after 17 hours of travel. Our exhaustion and frustration evaporated upon entering the beautiful Cragmere Villa. The spacious, restful and relaxing island decor put us all in vacation mode for our 2 week stay.

This stunning villa boasts large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms for 8 - 10 people, and the crowning jewel is the spacious outdoor terrace with plenty of sun, shade, dining table, infinity pool, chairs and chaises. There is even a shaded outdoor queensize bed for lazy afternoon naps!

A vacation highlight was hiring a chef to prepare a tantalizing fish and seafood island dinner in the Cragmere's fully equipped kitchen. The villa manager will help you set this up.

The view from the terrace out over the rolling waves and the sound of the breakers on the little beach below add to the serenity. Adventurous swimmers will enjoy playing in the waves below.

A car or van rental is definitely recommended to take advantage of all beautiful Barbados has to offer. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants and beach of the Crane Resort, as well as visiting many other areas, restaurants, beaches and exploring the countryside. Barbados is a very friendly and safe island (using your common sense).

AN ADDED PLUS - we did not see one biting insect the whole two week vacation (Feb/Mar)!!

Just an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Barbados in February 2015 for a week and we were simply amazed by the view, the ounstanding grounds surrounding the villa. The villa itself is fully equipped with large bedrooms and king size beds all with an excellent view of the sea. The villa is also very luxurious, well laid out/designed and sleeps 8 people very comfortably. Located within walking distance of the Crane resort and local restaurants as well as two beaches (crane beach and foul bay). The infinity pool is awesome and where ever you decide to sit, the music will reach you as the villa is equipped with outside speakers everywhere. Maurva, the villa's manager is very helpful and nice, she will see to your every needs. The villa's staff are very discrete and respectful of your space. We have made a point of revisiting this piece of paradise in the future, we definitly recommand this spot to anyone looking for a quiet place to lay back. We were 7 friends from Montreal, Canada to celebrate my better half 50th Birthday. We couldn't have found a better place!

Located on the Southeast coast of Barbados, this villa is within walking distance to two of the best beaches in Barbados; Crane Beach and Foul Bay. The Crane Resort, a few minutes walk away, is world famous for cuisine, duty free shopping and their beach was ranked number one in the world. The Crane beach can be accessed through the Crane Resort next door if you buy a meal or groceries (only a 5 minute walk) or around the resort (which is about a 10-15 minute walk). There is also a beach directly in front of the villa which can be accessed by a stairway- however this beach is fairly rough and the most popular one is next door at the Crane Beach.
