“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

From one look at the pictures, we were all hooked. The dozens of great reviews didn’t hurt the selection either. It was everything we imagined.
The furniture/beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are luxurious, the views are spectacular, the pool is lovely. We enjoyed all of the living spaces in the house. Surprisingly, the day bed on the cliff wasn’t used as much as I had thought it would be. It is a flat bed and difficult to read a book. Plus, the wind down there is pretty strong and even at almost 85 degrees most days, it could really be cool. One cannot beat the views though.
The best part is that although it is a cozy home for 8, you never feel like you are on top of anyone. There are many areas where you can find some alone space which is often needed on a long trip with others. The wind was lovely and constant and kept all bugs at bay. We left the windows open all day and no mosquitos were ever found inside. Our neighbors were close by if we felt we needed something yet far away so we didn’t hear them almost ever.
The chef, Hilde, was excellent as was the housekeeper Maylene. The property manager Carolyn met us at the airport and waited while we filled out a dozen papers (with carbon copys!) for what seemed like 6 hours at Drive-A-Matic. She arranged a snack for us and did our shopping and answered all of our questions. Lovely people and were indicative of all the people we met in Barbados.
Opportunities for improvement: One suggestion would be to get a larger grill. The living area is not air conditioned and we knew this going in. The tough part only comes in at night when cooking. The kitchen gets very warm. I tried to think of a way to cook but not use the oven or stove but the grill is not large. It was big enough for just the meat.
Every type of kitchen utensil is available except maybe the most critical: Buy a martini shaker. Keep in freezer. I tried to buy one for the villa and one could not be found at the stores I tried. I had a difficult time making the cocktails but I was able to manage!

“A Dream”
Reviewed 28 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I had the pleasure of staying at this beautifully situated villa on the south east coast this year. I remember to this moment the feeling of walking through the main living room out to the pool area and seeing the ocean for the first time....Wow !!!
The views are breathtaking and the wonderful sound of the waves below made it all worth while.
The villa is beautifully appointed with all the amenities you could possibly need for a relaxing vacation situated between 2 beautiful beaches, Foul Bay and The Crane Beach both within walking distance. Also within a 5 minute walk is Marco Polo, a local restaurant for inexpensive dining and entertainment.
The villa Manager Carolyn greeted us upon arrival with such a warm smile on her face, made me feel immediately taken care of. She had ensured that we had some food and drinks available to us, a perfect start to our first evening there.
From the moment we contacted her regarding our trip she keep us advised of all things we needed to know , she was prompt in responding to all our questions and gave us a wealth of knowledge to help us along. Even during our stay she would call every few days to make sure we had everything we needed. Top notch service in my opinion,
The housekeeper Maylene was there daily and did a fantastic job keeping the villa spotless.
All in all, I would highly recommend Windermere Villa and my friends are counting the days until we return.

“Fabulous Family vacation”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From the moment we were greeted by house manager Carolyn, we knew we had hit the jackpot and landed a fabulous vacation rental. It is everything you see in the photos, although the pics can't really do justice to the incredible view. Next door to the Crane Resort as well as taxi rides to any activities we wanted which included golf, surfing lessons, tennis, and a mountain bike tour of the island. Carolyn and staff couldn't be any more helpful; just ask and they can make it happen. Shout out as well to Willie and his taxi team. (we had more than a few airport trips for children coming and going). All in all, a wonderfully relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting.

“Simply AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Very rarely does something live up to the hype, and almost never exceed expectations...but the Windermere Villa in Barbados did!!! My wife and I rented the villa for 12 days in early/mid April, and split the time there with family for 7 days and friends for 5 day, and the villa was absolutely perfect for both!! Everything from the property managers that handle the accommodations, to the style and character of the villa, to the location, were absolutely perfect! The home is beautifully furnished with an open floor plan and 4 master bedrooms each with private and large bathrooms. There was nothing better than opening the sliding doors each morning and having morning and coffee breakfast outside. And after setting out for the day to the beach or other activities, coming home to this spectacular setting didn't take long to get used to. The world renowned and simply beautiful Crane Beach is a very short walk away, and I would recommend taking a couple day trips to other beaches on the west coast just to get a more well-rounded taste of what the island has to offer. Mullins Beach, Brandons Beach and Miami Beach were a few of our other favorites. Either way, we can not wait to make another trip back to Barbados, and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere other than the Windermere Villa. It's the perfect home away from home, whether you're planning a trip with family, friends, or both!!

“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this was quite simply one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The location, high upon a cliff overlooking the southeast coast of Barbados (next to Crane Beach), was breathtaking. Just having coffee every morning with cocktails in the evening was so extraordinary. This was the perfect home and location for an extended family vacation. From the time of booking till the day we left everything was handled with ease. We traveled with 9 of us (6 adults and 3 teenage kids). Everything you would need is available including full kitchen, bbq grill, home entertainment (music, TV), lovely, lovely pool, housekeeping staff and a cook (although we ate out or cooked most nights so we didn't use). And the daybed overlooking the cliff and water was like a dream. We rented a car so we could explore the island but the Crane resort is within walking distance and has a coffee shop, restaurants and shopping. Many thanks to Carolyn and Sabrina for assisting with everything we needed. Carolyn met us at the airport so we could follow her to the property. Already looking forward to our return! We give Windermere Villa our highest recommendation.
