For more info and video visit www.cranevillasbarbados.com

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 Windermere highly enough for any traveller who is discerning, appreciates privacy but wants the option of exploring as well.

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.

About Matthew Moore

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and have several master degrees in business and real estate in Toronto and Sweden.

I grew up in the hospitality industry and am fortunate to have a great teacher- my father Tim Moore. 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.

As a host, I strive to provide the highest quality of service in the industry and am continually looking for ways to improve my guests experience. I treat everyone like family and friends and believe this is a crucial part of my guests travel experience.

Matthew Moore purchased this villa in 2003

back to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Ever since we stayed at Cragmere in April 2013, we've dreamed of coming back....and now our dream is coming true. We have such wonderful memories of the spectacular physical beauty of the site, the luxury of the accommodations and the friendly helpfulness of the staff. Things I remember: the feeling of the crisp, smooth sheets at night in the wonderful bed; swimming in the meticulously maintained infinity pool with the feeling that the azure sea is one swim stroke away; cooking in the superbly equipped kitchen; lounging on the double-sized sunbed outside, where the whole family could sprawl together and admire the sea view; taking our little grandson to the silky sand beach at The Crane hotel; eating the fresh fish dinner prepared by the staff; sipping coffee on the terrace on the morning, with the blue sea spread beneath us and the sun enfolding us. Everything about Cragmere is sweet and welcoming.

wonderful vacation, beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to spend a wonderful vacation celebrating a friend's 50th birthday at this beautiful villa. Cragmere Villa has everything that you could ever imagine and more. The grounds are beautiful, and immaculately kept. The management and staff are wonderful. The views are breathtaking.

It is within walking distance to the Crane Resort, Cutters Deli (a great place to eat), and Foul Bay (a beautiful beach).

The Villa has 4 gorgeous bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. The attention to detail in this villa is incredible. The infinity pool overlooks the ocean. It is definitely paradise!

There was a new Villa beside Cragmere, Windermere, which was almost finished when we were there. It looks amazing also.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here. It is a luxurious, tropical paradise!

trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the internet do not do justice to the views from every point of this house. From the infinity pool, to the terrace to the daybeds and even the steps down to the ocean every where you look all you can do is take it in and breath!!!! The staff is absolutely there for nothing but to make your stay a great one! The housekeeping is done every day and they work around you, we hardly even knew they were there. Hilda the cook is so very pleasant and again you don't know she's there until you smell the deliciousness coming from the kitchen. Willie and his crew who took us every where we wanted to go never missed a beat they even suggested times that would be the best and they knew what they were talking about. We actually felt like we were totally alone on the island. Marco Polo Restaurant, right down the street should not be missed but keep in mind they don't take cards, cash only! To wake up every morning and have coffee as I looked out over the ocean was an absolute dream. The Crane beach is a short walk and should not be missed. It was very hot but if air conditioned was offered it was cool!! This island and the people that are on it are happy to have you there and you can feel it. Don't waste you money at a resort or hotel rent the Cragmere you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be making a return trip!!

Beautiful home that pictures dont do justice

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home that pictures don't do justice. The breezes from the cliffs every day were heavenly and the island was lovely and tourist friendly. We drove all over and have nothing but the highest of praises. Carolyn was super helpful in setting up catamaran, rental cars, and some starter groceries. Would definitely return!!!

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!!

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.
