About Julie and Peter Morgan

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.

Julie and Peter Morgan purchased this condo in 2010

Why Julie and Peter Morgan chose Barbados

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!

What makes this condo unique

There are five swimming pools and a large Jacuzzi pool, a variety of restaurants and bars, a Serenity Spa and Wellness Centre, a gym, floodlit tennis courts and a duty- free retail shopping village. Most of these facilities are only available to residents of The Crane.

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.

The resort is beautiful and the staff is very helpful and kind! We loved the beach and breeze!

  • 4 of 5

The resort and rooms are clean and well cared for. The only thing missing from this resort is a hot tub by the pool area. The grounds are so beautiful at night that sipping a rum punch with my feet in a warm hot tub would have been icing on the cake! Will recommend to all our friends.

Wonderfully relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for having us in your suite. So beautiful and felt luxurious with the ocean breeze and king size bed. So nice to make our own breakfast each morning and we brought our own espresso perculator to make in room iced lattes! The room was cleaned each day and the food on site was fantastic! Don't have to go off site to eat. I read 5 books and we enjoyed wonderful lazy days at the beach and pool. The beach sand restaurant was awesome with a great manager and fresh Mahi Mahi with salad and cheap Banks beer. The Italian restaurant had wonderful risotto and pasta, and the Seafood Restaurant was elegant and wonderful food.

The pools are fantastic with lots of space for everyone. The lower pool is so nice for kids and adults with the gradual walk in areas. We did a catamaran day with RnR Catamaran Cruises. Fantastic hosts and so much more enjoyable with only 14 guests on board. Going into Bridgetown was fine to see, but The Crane is where it is at for rest and relaxation!!!

Quite Resort With Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Although we weren't able to stay in a full condo type of room, we still really liked the smaller "hotel like" room that we were assigned. The property is quite relaxing with the most gorgeous beach that I have seen. The resort is full with trees and flowers through out the resort. The pools were great for us in the evening. The restaurants had good food, and if you got tired of them, there was another restaurant just down the street. The Wifi was good. The grocery store nearby would pick you up if you needed some groceries and bring you back. We really liked this resort and don't have any complaints however the only thing that I wished it had, was a hot tub Jacuzzi outside by the pools to go in at night time. I recommend Staying at the Crane and we will most likely be going back soon.
