“Awesome place and people”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We are still here at the villa but this place is so beautiful i had to write about it right away. The house itself is fantastic and beautiful. Large open area which acts as a family room dining room and the kitchen is big as well. The bedrooms are huge and the beds comfortable. All of the amenities are second to none. But where this house really shines is the outdoors area. The pool is decent size but the grounds around the pool are excellent and beautiful. There are daybeds, chairs and gazebos everywhere making it easy for everyone to get what they want, be it sun or shade.

Carolyn who met us at the house was awesome in getting the house prepared with 3 cribs and stocking the fridge. They also recommended Emanuel tours who picked us up from the airport who have also been awesome. The driver, Justin, has been amazing and patient, reliable and very friendly. We have used him to travel the entire island and I can't recommend them enough.

In all, this place is spectacular and the views are incredible. I am typing this while watching the sunrise from our patio!! Beautiful!!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

In order to celebrate my 50th birthday, my husband and I decided to rent Windermere Villa for 4 days and invite 3 other couples to join us. We all live in Barbados and appreciate the beautiful beaches and surroundings that the island provides us with on a daily basis. However, on entering Windermere we knew that we had found a truly hidden gem! Carolyn gave us a wonderful welcome, and called during our stay to see if there was anything that we needed. The housekeeper was very friendly,helpful and courteous.The villa itself is both spacious and comfortable inside and there is plenty of outdoor space too, from the pool deck to the upper rooftop deck, to the most wonderful daybed on the cliff. The view is magnificent! We invited other friends to a barbecue and everyone was totally blown away by this beautiful hidden gem. Forget the platinum coast of Barbados and think paradise on a cliff top with cool breezes and a million dollar view!! We would highly recommend this villa for a wonderful getaway or as an idyllic location for any special celebration.

“WoW! WoW! WoW!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

This is an excellent villa and ticks all the boxes. There were four of us staying in the villa for four days before picking up our cruise. The welcome from Carolyn was exceptional! Her knowledge of the local area and the island is second to none. The villa itself is immaculately decorated and the design is modern living - ie open spaced downstairs living area incorporating the lounge and kitchen. Then you also have another superb outdoor "living" space. The pool is a decent size and the added luxury of the "day bed" situated in the rocks is just bliss. We would not hesitate booking this villa on a return visit to Barbados. Only slight downside - but not really a problem was that the speaker system wasn't working for music - but as we had an iphone with mini portable speakers ourselves we just used that. I believe this was being looked into anyway. You will need a car if you want to get out and explore the island and area - but as we had hired one anyway this was not a problem for us. As others have said, out of the two this is definitely the one to book.

“Absolutely beautiful villa”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have just returned home from a 5 week Caribbean island hop which ended with a week's stay at Windermere. This villa is lovely and we would highly recommend it to everyone.
The space and size is more than you could wish for and the service that you receive during your stay and during the booking process, could not be faulted. Everything you may need whilst there is already provided and more. If you can think of anything else, then they will be happy to sort it for you.
We are a family of 4, our children being 13 and 10, and they too loved the accommodation. My parents also joined us who too were extremely pleased with every aspect of the villa.
The pool and outdoor space is just as pleasing as the inside with a fantastic view to top it off. There is a constant Atlantic breeze off the sea although it is obviously still very warm.
The only downside to residing in the area is that you are a little out of it with regards to restaurants and the likes of but that did not bother us as we always get a car with it being so easy drive on the island.
We would definitely recommend it to anyone and will probably be rebooking in the near future.
Just a quick tip, out of Windermere and Cragmere next door, there is no contest, Windermere is far superior and we would always book that of the two.
A big thank you to Carolyn for making the booking process so straight forward, and to Sabrina who was our lovely housekeeper whilst there.
