“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
'There is something incredibly magical about Windermere- from the moment you arrive and see the amazing ocean view, you feel like you have stepped into another world. I love the constant trade winds, and the villa has great spots to chill and enjoy them. I wish I could bottle the time I spent there.'
Evan Rogers, Grammy Nominated record producer and song writer who initially discovered and signed Rhianna
'This truly unique property is a place of stunning natural beauty with breathtaking oceanviews. The staff were incredibly friendly and the accomodation was spacious and luxurious. Totally delightful, home away from home, will definitely return.'
Arlene Dickenson, CBC's Dragon's Den
'Our stay at Windermere 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. Windermere 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 Windermere 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

SMabey April 2012
We have just returned from our second rental in april 2012 and we will be back! Our first time renting the villa was in March 2010 when we rented it for two weeks and over the course of the two weeks had extended family join us as well as highschool kids and young adults. It was a fabulous experience in part because of the grandeur of the villa; in part because of the incredible staff who get service; and the generous and kind owners who followed up to make sure everything was done right. Two other couples joined us for a week (one returning and one for the first time) this time and our early regret was that we only came for 1 week but we won't make that mistake again. We had sung high praises of the villa and the staff and so we were somewhat nervous that we had oversold the place (memories do tend to get fonder with the passing of time) but that went out the window on the first day. Our trip was delayed due to airline issues and so we were saddened to think we would have one less day there but that was dispelled when Carolyn the local manager arranged for us to stay at the sister Villa for an extra night at the end of the week at no charge! If that was not enough the warmth and charm of Sabrina removed any doubt that may have remained. She is a jewel and contributes in no small way to the charm and specialness of the property. And speaking of the property it was every bit as special as we remembered it between the magnificent views; the open air feel to the villa; the new day bed jutting out over the cliffs where the ocean sounds and pounding waves lulled us to nap time on a number of occaisions; the refreshing infinity pool; anf for those of us needing to ease into relaxation a robust wireless network that allowed us to work and still enjoy the surroundings. The staff are incredibly helpful in arranging reservations and transportation to a wide variety of venues including golf, restaurants, and touristy venues. The proximity to the Crane Resort and its facilities only serves to enhance the whole Windermere experience. And we were able to participate in some local cuisine thanks to the staff arraning for a wonderful local cook to come in one night and cook for us. So we will be back and next time we will be staying for the 2 weeks again
