Boendet
-Cragmere offers an unparalleled blend of privacy and resort-level amenities along with full concierge service and discreet staff presence
-Endless scope for stylish al-fresco dining, sleek pool-side living with ocean views at every turn
-Immaculately finished home offering every contemporary comfort along with lavish, Plantation style interiors and architecture

Arriving at Cragmere, guests will enter an enchanting world of peerless comfort, timeless elegance and quintessential Bajan hospitality. This home has been impeccably restored with both care and charisma, offering a majestic façade of dazzling whites and Plantation-style architecture along with stylish outdoor living.

Set regally on a craggy, cliff-side spot on the island’s South-Eastern Coast with sparkling ocean views at every turn, Cragmere blends the very best of a tranquil self-contained home and the indulgence of almost next-door top resort level amenities. Executed with architectural panache, this home fuses local raw materials, ornate decorative flair and touches of ‘rock and roll’ decadence.

Outdoor and indoor living interplay seamlessly at Bembe, with layers of sunny terraces, chic pool-side deck, romantic cliff-edge pavilion and roof lounge offering dramatic views. Guests will be able to sit back on one of the elegant day-beds after a refreshing morning swim in the 40-foot infinity swimming pool, or enjoy a mouth-watering Chef prepared meal in the shaded breeze of the pretty pergola, or even an evening cocktail whilst the sun softens across the open sea-scape.

Five bedrooms (the fifth one is optional) comprise three King size beds, one Queen and Twin bedrooms (can also be a king), offering airy, lavishly proportioned space for nine guests. Each bedroom has its own en-suite, and guest can rest in the knowledge that all the contemporary touches are in place; air-conditioning, HD satellite television and DVD for when downtime calls.

This classic home unfolds with serene, tastefully finished interiors hallmarked by the use of cool marble, gloss-polished mahogany furniture and a genteel brand of glamour: roll top antique desk, oil paintings, sedate armchairs. There is a charming note of stately ceremony, the offer of formal dining or low-key living - a blend of Bajan ease and Colonial luxury.

The bedrooms offer crisp cotton linens, lavish four poster beds, gilded frames and all the comfort of a boutique hotel, whilst the white-washed timber adds a note of local Bajan flavour. A spacious kitchen of granite, marble and mahogany provides top-range appliances and all necessities at guests’ disposal.

Executed with flawless attention to detail, Cragmere aptly harmonises with its surrounding crashing waves and swaying palm trees, taking a mix of influences to create a place where memories are made, not to be forgotten.

What you should know…

Some additional services (Cook, Driver & Planned Excursions) will incur a fee - and an added layer of luxury!

Reviews:
“There is something incredibly magical about Cragmere — from the moment you arrive and see the amazing ocean view, you feel like you have stepped into another world. I love the constant trade winds, and the villa has great spots to chill and enjoy them. I wish I could bottle the time I spent there.”
Evan Rogers, Grammy Nominated record producer and song writer who discovered Rihanna and produced some of her top hits

“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

St. Philip, Barbados

The breathtaking views and ideal location next to the world famous crane beach and crane resort. Located on the Southeast coast of Barbados, within walking distance to the Crane Resort, Marco Polo Restaurant, Cutters Deli and Foul Bay. The Crane Resort is world famous for their cuisine, duty free shopping and their beach has been ranked highly. Cutters Deli is an American/Bajan style delicatessen. Emerald City, the local American style supermarket, is a ten minute drive from the villa. The airport is also a short ten minute drive from the villa.

Carolyn, who is onsite in Barbados can help arrange for a pick up at the airport and other logistical details that you may require.

Cragmere is superbly located on the South-Eastern Coast of Barbados, next to the Crane Hotel Resort, a matter of moments from a local-style convenience store (walkable) and only a little further to markets, supermarkets and the airport (all between seven- and ten-minutes’ drive.)

Barbados is an independent Caribbean island known for its melting pot of traditions and customs, for vibrant local life, rich rum and sugar plantation history, and, of course, some of the world’s finest beaches. Cragmere is within walking distance to Foul Bay and Crane Beach; the latter has won international recognition for its natural beauty; protected by a natural coral reef, it offers elegant parasols and loungers and a gentle incline to the azure waters.

The Crane Resort offers everything from rum cocktails at the bar to award-winning Thai cuisine or local Bajan fare. A culinary experience here takes influences from African, Caribbean, West Indian and European gastronomy for something a little unique.

Brighton Farmer’s market takes place every Saturday, whilst an annual attraction is the Crop Over Festival; a six-week extravaganza of night-long parties, crafts and street foodie delights, celebrating a 200-year-old tradition honouring the end of the sugar can season.

The island’s capital is Bridgetown (half an hour’s drive); starting from the National Heroes Square with its Lord Nelson statue visitors can explore, shop and meander on foot. Bajan architecture will delight creative types; a fusion of old and new, vividly coloured chattel houses with fancy gables and trimmed in gingerbread fretwork, or, coral stone clad grand homes with manicured gardens and open verandas.

Known for its rum tradition, started circa 370 years ago, the island is brimming with tours of the world’s oldest rum (Mount Gay Rum Centre being the most known - visitors will be able to indulge in traditional Bajan rum punch!)

Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element, from sailing to snorkelling, jet-skiing to kite-surfing, Barbados has it all. One of the greatest delights of this island is boarding the sparkling waters for a catamaran cruise, along with a decadent buffet meal and drinks. A prestigious golf club is just fifteen minutes away, whilst horse racing and polo are very popular on the island.

St Nicholas Abbey is a magical, mystical spot, in the hills of St. Peter, offering over 400 acres of lush tropical overgrowth, impeccably manicured gardens, mahogany forests and undulating sugar cane fields.

Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vivid local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!

Hi there, thanks for stopping and wondering who is behind these residence rentals? It's me Matt, along with condos and homes that I'm involved in. As a host, it is vital to me that you have a memorable experience and an enjoyable stay. I started out as a customer. I've travelled to a number of different countries and have stayed in a number of different suites, so I know how personal it is to provide people a great place to stay. A little bit about me: I've studied business and health promotion in Canada, Sweden and Iceland. Once completing my education I became a partner in Oceanstone Resort, Premiere Self Storage and Moore Suites in Atlantic Canada.This past year I spent eight days in Sierra Leone, Africa helping to raise awareness of the need for clean water and toilet facilities. Some of my favourite travel destinations are Iceland, Norway and Barbados. I think the best part of travelling is meeting new people, making new friends and learning about different lifestyles. Places lived: Sweden, Iceland, Canada Languages spoke: Danish, Swedish, French
