About the Owner

We have been visiting Barbados since the mid-1980’s and then were fortunate enough to live on the Island for 3 years from 2007 to 2009. Having fallen in love with Barbados, we knew that we would always want to frequently return to the Island. Hence, we decided to invest in The Crane and purchased a quarter share in a 1-bed deluxe park residence. We plan to spend 2-3 months each year at The Crane when we retire, but until then we privately rent out ten of our weeks each year, which can be booked at any time throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable, you feel like you are at home and it has all the amenities you need for self catering. Maids come in daily and clean so it makes such a great cross between self catering and a hotel - you can also have room service from the restaurants in the village. Julie was extremely helpful with information on Barbados to make sure our stay was the best it could be, I couldn't have asked for anymore.

What a special beach!

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment within the overall facilities of the Crane Resort was large, spacious, super clean and fabulously equipped. It had two full bathrooms and a superb private balcony. There are several pools on the large property of the resort with spectacular views of the Atlantic sea. The Crane beach itself is fabulously gorgeous with some of the best sand you will ever find. But it is NOT a beach if you like to swim in the sea - only for playing around in the shallow part near the shoreline. My only criticism (which is in no way a refection of the apartment we stayed in) is that the Crane resort itself - having splendid grounds and amazing pools and friendly helpful staff - is super expensive to eat at the restaurants and shop for supplies, and the resort itself feels charmless and fabricated. If you don't have a car then you are quite isolated within its walls with a sense of being in a gated community. You cant walk around and explore anything except the resort itself.

On another note, Julie and Peter who rented us the apartment were excellent do deal with - easy to contact, and always answered my emails within 24 hours. I sent money to a bank in the UK via wire transfer and it was super easy and the money was received with no problem at all within 2-3 days.

A great resort, off the beaten track

  • 5 of 5

The Crane is a fantastic resort with great facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful. The beach and pools are amazing. We arranged a hire car via the concierge as you need one to explore the island - the Crane is away from the main touristy areas and taxis can be very expensive as there are no meters. All in all very good value - I would recommend the Crane to friends.

A Caribbean location that has everything

  • 4 of 5

The property was everything we expected it to be. It was tastefully decorated, well presented and excellently maintained. Julie and Peter were exceptional in responding to all our questions and provided us with some very useful information. The Crane resort itself had all the amenities we required without being over commercial. The beach which is normally beautiful was often covered in a sea moss but The Crane beach management are installing a seaweed boom which we hope will resolve the problem.

Location

From the Owner

The Crane Hotel, built in 1887 has been sympathetically restored into a luxury 5-Star resort. It is set on the world-famous Crane Beach, overlooking a perfect azure blue sea. It is simply the most beautiful and enchanting resort on the Island of Barbados – for us there was no other choice – this is Barbados at its finest! Recognized for its stunning beauty, The Crane Beach was named ‘one of the Ten Best Beaches in the World’ by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Lounge on the spectacular powder soft, pink sand, caressed by the rays of the Caribbean sun and fanned by gentle trade winds and you will understand why the Crane Resort is regarded by those that know it as one of the most beautiful places anywhere in the world!

(They can also provide assistance with arranging transport, in room salon services and babysitting services etc. if required.)

Restaurants, spa, and shopping at The Crane can be purchased and charged to the residence and settled on departure. Including beverages and light meals from The Beach Hut on Crane Beach.

The only additional charge is for the air-con if used, which is on a meter – we prefer to open the windows and let the natural gentle trade winds keep the residence cool.
