The house is set in the most idyllic of locations, completely private with a spectacular ocean view yet within easy walking to the Crane Hotel, as well as local restaurants in the area. Cragmere itself is enchanting, beautifully designed and appointed, and obviously carefully maintained. I can't recommend Cragmere highly enough for any traveller who is discerning, appreciates privacy but wants the option of exploring as well. Cragmere Villa is the perfect choice for family, friends or weddings.
“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.'

'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

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

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.
