The SpaceA single room, with a bathroom ( just outside) living room and kitchen as well for guest's use. The entire house is at the disposal of all guests. It is spacious and comfortable. The needs of guests are anticipated and provided for, but if anything else is needed, it is our pleasure to accommodate. We allow privacy or welcome interaction as guests choose. There are two supermarkets within five minutes driving distance and guests are known to have walked to the closest one. In both cases, the supermarket offers free transportation to home. We are also within walking distance ( no more than ten minutes) to the awarded Crane Resort. Public transportation is less than two hundred yards away, even though it is not always reliable. If guests are staying for more than three days, renting a car may be a good idea, but all the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean sea are a bus ride away. We are special, because we are authentic "Bajans" who are genuinely interested in others and offer warm hospitality. You will (EMAIL HIDDEN)e and be spoiled. Guest AccessGuests are free to use whatever they need. We have big hearts here. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the compound and will be present,unless otherwise on vacation and stated, during the guest's stay. We are sensitive to the needs of guests and will interact as much or as little as is indicated by actions or words. The NeighborhoodOur neighbourhood is peaceful, friendly and blessed with a pastoral atmosphere. We boast one of the most unspoiled beach sites/sights in Barbados. The neighbours are helpful and welcoming and the two local supermarkets will bring home shoppers for free. Close by are several places of interest: The Crane Beach Hotel, Sunbury Plantation, Four Square Rum Factory, the ruins of Sam Lord's Castle, King George V Park, Codrington College (the only college for Anglican priests in the region) and five minutes from the incredibly wildly, beautiful Foul Bay Beach, where many weddings are held. Getting AroundPublic transportation is less than 100 yards across the road, but is not always reliable. Parking in the garage (depending on the size of the vehicle) and on the street are options. Taxi service to and from the airport is usually between USD 16 to 24 per trip, depending on the luggage and number of guests. Comfy Lodgings charges USD 10 per trip. Buses can also be taken to and from the airport for the cost of USD 1 per trip. Do inform which method is preferred. We strongly recommend hiring a car if the stay is longer than four days. Other Things to NoteI would respectfully request that potential guests cease and desist from bargaining about the nightly price. I am never going to charge less than USD 40 for accommodation. It would make no sense. The cost of a cleaning person per day is usually USD 30. If I provide breakfast.. the margin is reduced. As generous a person as I am, I am not running a Not for Profit organisation. The cost of living is high in Barbados, labour is expensive and salaries have not been raised for the last nine years. If my prices do not suit your budget, please book with a host whose prices do. Guests are reminded that check in and check out time is 11.00 a.m and 2.00 p.m. respectively. Generosity abounds here, but the general rule is that basic breakfast (cereal, toast and butter, hot beverage) is gratis (free) and dinners cost. Breakfast and dinner menu available on arrival. ** Single night only accommodation will cost an extra USD10

The SpaceForget the South or West coast! Too crowded, too hot, very noisy, dogs barking all night long, eroding beaches and way too expensive tourist trap. This spacious and clean house is located on the south east part of the island known for its cooling, Atlantic breeze. It's walking distance to the 7 most beautiful, uncrowded beaches. With its rugged, beautiful scenery the quiet and friendly Belair neighborhood is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the south and west coasts. The apartment is on the ground floor of the brand new house. It has a private entrance from the garden, includes a living room, fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom as well as a luxurious outdoor shower with rain shower head. LOCATION: The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach. However the best beaches are 15-20 minutes away or 5-10 minutes by car. They include: - Bottom Bay Beach (our favorite!) - Crane Beach (very popular 5 star hotel, with great views) - Ginger Bay Beach - Sam Lords Castle Beach - Plus a few more secret beaches, which we're happy to share with you! 15 minute drive to the airport 20 minutes to Oistins Fish Market or the night life area: St. Lawrence Gap ACT LIKE A LOCAL: We have been coming to Barbados for 20 years now and are familiar with the best beaches and sight seeing. We have a map upon request, which highlights the best places to see. There is well equipped Emerald City Supermarket is at Six Roads, 10 min drive from the house. Guest Access3 boogie boards, 2 sets of professional snorkeling gear, 2 bikes, 2 yoga matts, Bose SoundTouch mp3 player, sun tent, fast & reliable internet, outdoor brick grill, outdoor hot & cold totally private shower, hair dryer, safety deposit box, ceiling fan in bedroom. Interaction with GuestsIf I am not on the island my house manager lives just around the corner. She will give you the keys and show you the house. The NeighborhoodThe location is unique because it is away from the touristy areas of Barbados. You'll find stunning beaches that have very few visitors but plenty of fresh coconuts to eat and drink. :) No need for AC. With the cooling Atlantic breeze you may not even turn the ceiling fan on. This breeze also keeps mosquitos away. There are insect screens in all the windows anyway. Getting AroundThe best way to move around is to rent a car. However, if you do not dare to drive on the left, there is a bus stop only 2 min away. Bikes are good only to reach the nearby beaches or to the Crane resort, Marco Polo Bar/Grill. Other Things to NoteMy favorite beaches:  Shark Hole (no sharks there, I promise), Ginger Bay, Bottom Bay and Crane are all in the walking distance, Crane beach is the best for boogie boarding (feel free to use mine) Miami & Dover Beach are on the south. The calmest sea, suitable for kids & elderly is on Carib (right next to St. Lawrence Gap) and Brownes beach (just before Bridgetown). West coast beaches are are more narrow (eroding) and also much more touristy. I highly recommend a day trip to Batsheba, Martin's Bay on the East coast. Animal Flower Cave and Little Bay on the north side of the island. Its absolutely beautiful. The sea is very rough there, but you can still take a swim at the small pools inside the cave and on the little beach protected by the reefs at Little Bay, so wear bathing suit everywhere. Leave early in the morning. It may take more then an hour when you hit the traffic. Bring your camera. If you like gardens, the Hunte's Garden is an absolute MUST: (URL HIDDEN) Bridgetown is not very nice city, except of the Waterfront cafe, there is really nothing pretty to look at. I would certainly avoid it at night, not safe, watch for your belongings! What I can recommend is a Catamaran cruise and the Mount Gay rum factory.

                    The SpaceBest vacation rental ever 5 out of 5 We travel extensively around the world - all parts of Canada, countries in Europe, all over South America, Hawaii, etc. - and this is by far the best vacation rental we have ever had. We have stayed here twice, once with our 3 children in 2008 (ages 8, 10 and 16) and then again by ourselves in 2013. The owner is fantastic, and takes impeccable care of her property. The location is sublime, and it is exceptionally well furnished. There is a balcony off 2 of the 3 bedrooms and the water welcomes you in the morning and lulls you to sleep at night. Highlights: Well-stocked kitchen, a living and dining room that feels like home, views of the water, serenity of the environment, fresh fruit and vegetable stands down the road, satellite TV, spacious and well appointed bathrooms, OUTSTANDING linens -- plush towels and high quality bedding, including the mattress. There's air conditioning if you want it, but we found that with the breeze from the water, we didn't need it. The owner has truly thought of everything. You will want for nothing while here. The grocery store is a short drive, and the Crane's beach provides for swimming at a small cost. That we have visited so many places and yet have returned here twice says a lot because we typically like to see the world. When we want to connect with each other as a family or as spouses and want to do so away from home, we will surely reach out to the owner. It has become our go to spot for recharging. Book now; you will not be disappointed. Review Submitted: 09-Apr-2014 Date of Stay: Jul 2013 john t. Great Vacation in Paradise 5 out of 5 Great Deal. Safe. Spotless. Comfortable. Oceanfront. Awesome views. Wireless Internet. Everything we were looking for. We went on vacation with another couple and stayed at this property and really enjoyed ourselves. Both of our bedrooms exited out to a balcony overlooking the ocean that was furnished with cushioned lounges and small breakfast tables and chairs. Right on the ocean. Spent most days going different places on island, shopping, tourist sites. Great home to return to each day. Enjoyed our own little "happy hour" at the beach below the villa watching the sunset. Just had a great time. We also spent time at the Crane Resort which is nearby and loved their beach and had lunch there a couple of times. We can tell you we are thrilled we found this property to rent and enjoyed our stay. Our thanks to the owner. She was most helpful and informative throughout the process of booking and her referrals and recommendations were appreciated; from the car rental, to restaurants to just some great tips on visiting Barbados. We look forward to our return. Review Submitted: 06-Oct-2011 Date of Stay: Jul 2011 Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway PJ and Anne Northeast, USA Romance is in the Air 5 out of 5 We feel like we really lucked out. So many properties to choose from and we found and chose this one. Villa was spotless, nice open layout and comfortable with such spectacular views. Must comment on the good mattresses and nice linens. Appreciated. We have traveled the Carib enough to know the difference. Great beaches, spectacular ocean views, sunrises, sunsets, night sky filled with a thousand stars. The stars were so close to us as we lounged evenings on the upper deck. It felt like you could reach out and touch them. We loved the oceanfront upper deck off the bedrooms. We enjoyed our privacy on both of the beaches within steps of villa. We also spent late afternoons enjoying the covered oceanfront verandah, relaxing, reading our books, yes working on our I pads and enjoying a few "Happy Hour" cocktails. This beautiful tropical breeze we found so soothing. When we were choosing properties we didn't even factor in an upper deck and verandah and both were such a bonus. The villa sits right on the edge of the ocean. Such great value for the reasonable rate we paid. Perfect location. We rented a car upon the owners recommendation and glad we did. We went to grocery store, fish market, visited some duty free shops and explored the island. The natives were very nice and always helpful. Catamaran and snorkle trip was a fun day. Crane Resort was very close and we ran over there several times to dine at their restaurants and also enjoyed their beach one day. We loved the privacy of this villa. It was cozy and comfortable. It was very romantic and really afforded us the chance to connect again from our busy lives we lead. The sounds of silence. Rejuvenating. Several days we had plans to do tourist things and just found we were so enjoying the villa we changed our plans and spent the days at the villa. That's a good thing on a vacation when you are so relaxed and comfortable and don't feel like you have to go running around. We had the beach steps below the villa surrounded by the cliffs where you will find true solitude. Awesome. We had a great trip and really enjoyed our stay at this property and am wishing right now we were still there. Review Submitted: 18-Apr-2011 Date of Stay: Apr 2011 Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway "Lovebirds" Maryland, USA Our Stay at Paradise Found 5 out of 5 We enjoyed our vacation at this ocean front villa and so pleased with our choice. It was clean, comfortable, safe and well maintained. The beds and linens were so comfortable, which is a real treat in the Caribbean. We have been to many of the islands in the Caribbean and always rent a private home. This was definitely one of our favorite homes we have rented and Barbados is one of our favorite islands. The villa and location were just perfect. We were close enough to the grocery stores, shops, restaurants and action if we wanted to go out but far away enough that it didn't interfere with our peaceful and quiet stay. I booked the villa on the "Lovebirds Special" that the owner was offering. What a great deal! Such value for our dollars spent. We would have been hard pressed to find an ocean front hotel room for the price we paid for an entire ocean front villa. Plenty of room. We had our choice of gorgeous beaches to choose from. We sunned at the beach below the villa. We swam at the beach at the end of the cliff, Both of these beaches we enjoyed to ourselves the days we were there. We also spent a nice day at the Crane Resort beach and had lunch and cocktails. All the beaches special and memorable in their own way. We had to keep in touch due to our work and loved working on our computer from the dining area looking out to the sea and sky. It brought a new pleasure to work. The ocean and sky surround you. You definitely feel at one with mother nature. I especially enjoyed the morning sun and my coffee on the upper deck right off the bedrooms. To stand on that balcony and look at the endless sky and sea and cliffs. Words can't express. Such a great way to start the day. And that would be how many of our evenings were spent just enjoying the tropical breezes and the sound of the waves and lounging under the stars with a good glass of wine before calling it a day. So relaxing. Slept great. Came home feeling rested not worn out. The owner was so helpful and informative from the time we inquired about booking the villa. She always responded promptly to our emails and answered our questions thoroughly. Such a pleasure to deal with and had good advice even for seasoned travelers. We really enoyed our stay. It all just went too fast. We are already talking about returning next year. Review Submitted: 13-Apr-2011 Date of Stay: Feb 2011 Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Dick and Sue Okemos Michigan USA Outstanding Secluded Oceanfront Villa 5 out of 5 This is a fantastic rental – the perfect place to just kick back and enjoy paradise! The Villa sits right on the ocean, with the surf crashing a few steps below your porch and a deserted sand beach nestled between the cliffs at the edge of the property. The ocean is a constant presence in the Villa, and it creates a totally relaxing experience. There are a few friendly locals who come by to fish off the cliff, but essentially you have the beach and the ocean to yourself. The ground floor porch in the Villa is covered and shady, while the upper balcony is open for tanning, star gazing, and wonderful alfresco dining to the delightful sounds of the sea! The Villa is well furnished and spacious enough that you don’t feel crowded, and the TV and Internet connections allow you to enjoy the comforts of home away from home. There is no air conditioning, but amazingly enough it just isn’t needed! The trade breezes and ceiling fans kept the house cool in 85° heat, and there were no bugs either. A rental car is needed if you venture out and tour the island, but we stayed home many days and just soaked up life at the Villa. Upscale dining is available a few blocks away at the famous Crane resort, and there is a nice deli (Cutter’s) close by with great take out (be sure to try their special sauce). The grocery store is about 5 minutes away, and we ate in the Villa most nights – the ambiance from our balcony surpassed that of the fancy restaurants who boasted about their “fabulous seaside dining” experience! The owner attended to our every need and referred us to a rental car company with the most courteous and helpful staff. The on-site caretaker and the maid were wonderful and inconspicuous, while still making sure the place was clean and that we were enjoying our vacation. The only “drawback” to this place is that it is situated away from the hustle and bustle of night life and tourist attractions that are located on the south and west side of Barbados. But that also means that you have undisturbed tranquility and peace from an absolutely idyllic setting. We have vacationed in Hawaii for many years, and did not really expect this to be as nice as the Kauai beach house we usually rented. But it more than exceeded our expectations and we are already planning our return next year.

                            Situated adjacent to a small sandy beach on a low cliff, 'Altamar' is an exclusive 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom property in one of the most spectacular oceanfront locations in Barbados. Set in extensive, private, landscaped grounds, peppered with coconut palm trees, the property enjoys breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean. Although Altamar can accommodate up to 8 guests, we are happy to rent to fewer people at lower rental rates. The villa is roomy and fully equipped to a high standard. There are 3 large bedrooms in the main villa, one with en suite bathroom, with a 2nd family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have king beds, while the 3rd has twin beds. All have wonderful ocean views & cooling easterly sea breezes. There is a spacious lounge/diner & a large, very well equipped kitchen. There is an adjacent cottage close to the main villa that houses the 4th bedroom & large bathroom. This is ideal for a couple on vacation with family or friends that like their own space & independence. Outside, the large wooden deck area has recently been completely renewed and extended to incorporate a large spa tub offering wonderful views of the ocean. The covered terrace provides sheltered outdoor dining on the warm Barbados evenings. The villa & cottage are situated in over an acre of their own private grounds right on the ocean.

With constant cooling sea breezes wafting through the villa and grounds, Altamar is a wonderful oceanfront villa, the perfect relaxing retreat. The rental rates are variable depending on the occupancy and the season in Barbados (the winter season is a more expensive villa rental time in Barbados). Lower rates are available for occupancies less than the maximum of 8 people. Altamar is located in the rural parish of St. Philip in Barbados away from the more traditional, busy tourist areas on the South & West coast of the island. The villa is in a peaceful area right on the ocean front with stunning panoramic sea views. This is a beautiful, fairly rugged coastline that includes the famous Crane beach & Bottom Bay. Enjoy Altamar in Barbados all year round: Our ocean front property can be enjoyed in Barbados all of the year with perfect daytime and evening temperatures. It tends to be less breezy, with calmer sea in the summer months (June to September), making swimming and snorkeling at the small beach within a few steps of the villa a perfect way to keep cool and enjoy some exercise. The summer can be an exciting time in Barbados with the famous 'Cropover Festival', taking place in July and August. In addition, the many golf courses can be enjoyed in Barbados all the year round.

                                                Belair Great House is an impeccably restored plantation-style house that was built over hundred years ago and which has been a Barbadian family home owned by the same family for the past twenty years. The house is set on over two acres of beautiful lawns and gardens with almost 300 feet of ocean frontage. The entire property is enclosed and has an electronic entrance gate and a small gate to the sea front. It is extremely private and offers a peaceful setting that invites you to relax on its grand verandahs and admire its glorious island vistas and dramatic ocean views. While the property provides all the modern facilities which are required by discerning vacationers, the old world character of Belair Great House has been carefully preserved. Belair Great House has five bedrooms and sleeps up to ten people. The lower floor consists of a formal dining room, large kitchen, one bedroom, and one bathroom and a wrap-around verandah with patio furniture for relaxing in the breeze overlooking the sea, pool or tennis court. The dining room is a definite reminder of those regal days with a wonderful antique mahogany dining table that seats twelve, mahogany antique sideboards, and a crystal chandelier. With high ceilings and glass panel doors that open out to the lawns facing the ocean and tennis court, the dining room catches the ocean breezes and is a magnificent setting for either formal or more relaxed meals enjoyed by large families or groups of friends. The well equipped kitchen with granite countertops opens out onto the ocean front verandah, which is only a short distance from the sparkling freshwater swimming pool. The bedroom on this floor faces the ocean and has two single beds. Adjacent to the downstairs bedroom, there is a full bathroom with a shower. The upper floor has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the back verandah is the living space with push-out shutters and a French door leading out to the covered upstairs wrap-around verandah. This is a tastefully decorated sitting area where guests may relax and watch television or just sit and chat. This verandah also has a bar, an informal dining area that seats eight, and a fully-equipped kitchen, which makes it unnecessary to even go down the stairs to the main kitchen. The bedrooms all look out over the pool and ocean. The master bedroom, with a king-size bed, has an en-suite bathroom, which adjoins a small bedroom with two single beds. The other two bedrooms on this floor have a king and a full sized bed respectively and share the second bathroom.

The coach house has been finished with hardwood floors, travertine tiles, granite counter tops, and coral stone rendering and ruble stone walls, which preserve the old world character of the property. The cottage features a full-size antique billiards table and tastefully designed bar with a wine cooler, small fridge and microwave below. The billiards room has double French doors opening out to the lawns, allowing the room to catch the fresh breeze blowing in off the ocean. There is one double bedroom downstairs and two double bedrooms upstairs that open on to covered balconies that overlook the ocean. All three bedrooms have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. Upstairs there is a sitting area with cable TV and a large flat-screen Apple computer in an alcove with internet access.

Windermere itself is enchanting, beautifully designed and appointed, and obviously carefully maintained.

We are counting the days til we are back.” Amanda Lang, CBC News- Lang & O’Leary Exchange Arlene Dickinson on Crane Villas luxury vacation property in Barbados“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 Dragons Den This beautiful story was sent to us from friends who have been visiting Barbados and the Crane Beach for numerous years, we wanted to share it… “We wanted to share our reasons for the love of Barbados and it’s people. Our first visit to Barbados was in the early seventies, when we rented a Villa at Sunset Crest.Two return visits to the same area. We were then, invited by my cousin Dora Flynn to spend three different times with her in Cattlewash. Each year, Dora spent six months in Cattlewash, and 6 months , at her home in New Brunswick, spanning a period of 25- 30 years. She truly loved this Island and made a study of it’s history. Cattlewash has now become our little bit of Heaven, and we have enjoyed bringing, and introducing special friends to the Island we love. We jokingly tell our local friends to keep the East Coast secret. Over and above our need to leave Nova Scotia during the Feb/March cold period, and to come to the perfect climate, it’s the friendliness of the people, that is the magnet that brings us back. There would be too many incidents and happenings during our frequent stays that reflect the kindness and warmth of the people. However we must make mention of a few. During a church service in Bathsheba, it was common for an extended hand from behind to find the right page in our the prayer book. – The school uniforms, bright,shining faces and obvious good manners. – The forgiveness for making a wrong turn once it was noticed we drive a Hire car. – Cheapside market shopping for figs. None to be had at any stall until one vendor who had purchased some for herself, told her husband to sell them to my wife at the same price she paid for them , rather than to make a profit. – One final loving memory, was years ago while traveling on a bus with school children, an older sister had the hand of her younger sister as they passed by our seat. The younger girl, (4 years old) accidentally rubbed my wife’s leg. The older girl brought her back saying to her ” mind your (URL HIDDEN) which the child said”excuse me”. How delightfully refreshing is that!! The overall courtesy shown to each other on the busses was obvious. For example, the younger standing to give the elders a seat. Historically we Nova Scotians, have in trade sent lumber and salt cod, taking back rum and molasses.We think today that we have gotten the better trade! Mount Gay rum is second to none!!!” Guest Accessprivate 44 ft infinity pool, crane beach can be accessed through the crane resort (about 5 minute walk) for ex. if you buy a meal, groceries etc or around the resort (about a 10-15 minute walk.

It tends to be less breezy, with calmer sea in the summer months (June to September), making swimming and snorkeling at the small beach within a few steps of the villa a perfect way to keep cool and enjoy some exercise. The summer can be an exciting time in Barbados with the famous 'Cropover Festival', taking place in July and August. In addition, the many golf courses can be enjoyed in Barbados all the year round.
