Overview

Crane Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ocean View Residences

The referenced prices apply to seven night minimum stays in unit 823 with a Saturday changeover. Saturday check-in and check-out will guarantee the lowest rates, but we will do what we can to accommodate prospective guests who are unable to meet this requirement.

The images here are of the actual unit - 823 - on the second floor of building 8, one of the crane's ocean view towers. Of all the ocean view buildings, #8 stands closest to Crane beach. The elevator (lift) and stairs to the beach are just steps away (see photos and site plan).

The calendar below applies only to our unit, 823, a one bedroom ocean view . However, as our internal owner exchange privileges at the Crane allow us access to vacant units throughout the resort, we can find an identical one for you should the week you want in our unit be unavailable. This 'points' scheme also allows us to book, say, a less expensive one bedroom in the park, a larger , more luxurious, two or three bedroom penthouse, a suite in the historic hotel--in short, practically any category of accommodation available at the resort.

Booking through ReservationManager can be done via credit card and is worry and hassle-free. Guests are fully protected against fraud and have access to first-rate cancellation insurance. Paypal is another safe, secure payment option that we have been using lately.

Description of the Property (unit 823):

Unit 823 is - like all of the Crane's ocean view residences - spacious, lovely and permeated a sense of subtle, unaffected yet confident elegance that you will find perfectly in keeping the with the general setting and vistas - indeed, the entire experience of the place. The apartment is graced with more than charm, however.as In it you will find all you need in the way of the practical practical, along with a generous number of luxuries to soften that guilty feeling of not spending your every moment outdoors, on that glorious beach.

Here is a straightforward description of 823 - the apartment you see in the photographs (don't forget to check out the video I shot from the balcony):

Apartment 823 is a standard ocean view one bedroom without plunge pool and has two bathrooms. Its special features include the bedroom’s adjustable shutters, which open out onto a private patio with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. The luxurious master bathroom has marble walls, a double sink, two person jetted tub and a shower stall with glass doors.

The apartment can accommodate two more guests comfortably in the queen sized sofa bed in the living room. In addition, this unit has a dining area, carved wine-storage cabinet, and 36-inch TV with DVD/CD player. The spacious balcony, from which one has a spectacular view of the ocean, has two lounge chairs and dining set.

The kitchen comes fully equipped with ice-maker refrigerator, four-burner range, microwave, dishwasher and a washer/dryer. The second bathroom has a glass shower stall.

The entire unit offers spacious, luxurious accommodation, featuring 10-foot high wooden tray ceilings, hand-crafted Barbadian mahogany furniture, luxury finishes, cable TV and free wi-fi Internet access. Long distance/ international telephone is also free of charge.

Our prices include all taxes and fees. There are no hidden costs to worry about.

Building 8 of the Crane Resort is situated directly in front of the world-famous Crane beach, and next door to The Village with its many shops, fitness centre, full service spa and convenience store.

About Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu

We're Jessica Gill and Alberto Abreu, who run a foreign-language interpretation and translation company outside of Washington, D.C. We purchased a full ownership (52 weeks) residence at the Crane in 2006. Now renting on our own, we have found that renters value the personal connection we establish with them almost as much as they do the extraordinary bargains we offer on Crane rentals. Many make a point of telling us about the terrific time they had, and how renting directly from owners made that experience possible. In the end, it's the satisfaction of helping make great vacations happen for so many wonderful guests is what makes our efforts worth while.

Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu chose Crane Beach

Perched dramatically on the cliffs of Barbados' pristine south-east coast, The Crane Residential Resort, established since 1887, is the island's oldest operating hotel. Transformed into a world-class luxury resort, The Crane features ultra-spacious, fully appointed ocean-view one & two bedroom suites and three bedroom Penthouses. You will find a few other owners who rent on their own offering great deals, but we still offer the most weeks at the best prices. Facilities include the acclaimed Zen Restaurant (Zagat rated #1 in Barbados) serving classic Thai and Japanese cuisine and the consistently popular L'Azure Restaurant. The casual Carriage House Pool Side restaurant is another favorite. 'The Village' offers duty free shopping, a General Store, Bar 1887 (with nightly live entertainment) and The Village Cafe. Last but not least is Crane Beach voted by Lifestyle's of The Rich and Famous as one of the Top Ten most beautiful beaches in the world, now with a fabulous Beach Grill. The Crane's amenities are world-class, four-star standard and our guests are ensured full access to all amenities, without restriction.

What makes this condo unique

Our prices reflect discounts of up to 65% on what one would pay if booking through the hotel or such sites as expedia.com. Because of the substantial number of weeks we own at the Crane, we are able to bring to bear extraordinary flexibility in accessing other properties at the resort for our guests, all at dramatically reduced rates. We encourage all prospective guests to confirm for themselves by comparing our rates against those published in the Crane website.

Historical elegance and a great value

  • 4 of 5
The Crane is an excellent property sitting atop the coral cliffs overlooking an amazing beach. Our stay was extremely relaxing between the mornings at the Crane beach and afternoons in one of several pools. The site has most everything you need including excellent restaurants, shopping and a small grocery. Our one bedroom unit was very nicely equipped and provided ample room to spread out. The best feature was the constant heavenly breeze provided by the islands trade winds flowing from Europe.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider returning to The Crane!

Spectacular setting, gorgeous condo, all-around 10

  • 5 of 5
Hard to sum up such an idyllic and glorious time! From the get-go, Alberto was wonderful: Responsive, flexible, supportive and helpful. Our dates were funky -- they didn't fit into the normal Sat-Sat -- but he made them work. We'd rent from him again in an instant. Now for The Crane: Wow. The photos don't do it justice, because though you can see that it's a beautifully designed complex, what you can't see is how cleverly it integrates its old 19th-century grace with modern aesthetics and convenience. You stumble upon nooks and crannies and all sorts of mini-places that make you sigh at their beauty. The beach is as lovely as it's cracked up to be -- though the surf is truly a bit rough -- and the Crane has everything from casual to fancy restaurants and tip-top service in every way. My favorite moment: We asked for a tour of the landscaping because I was so curious about the amazing tropical blooms we saw all around us, and -- in typical Crane style -- it turned into a fabulous grand tour by Edwin, the landscaping chief, that lasted more than an hour (and taught me dozens of new types of plants.) The condo was just a few yards from the sea, and we never tired of the non-stop breezes and endlessly waving palms. The condo's design was brilliant -- we were a family of four and never felt crowded because everything so opened onto the sea, and the kitchen was well-equipped enough for cooking a few real meals and every breakfast. The furnishings were stately and impressive, the Wifi worked fine, and the housekeeping service was magical. The staff was as impeccably impressive and friendly as other reviews suggest. Clearly, the Crane is the kind of place that people keep coming back to, and it's easy to see why...Huge thanks to Alberto for making this memorable vacation possible.

Vacances parfaites en famille!

  • 5 of 5
Un endroit parfait pour passer des vacances sans tracas! Le site du Crane ainsi que le condo sont d'une condition impeccable. Notre accueil fut très chaleureux et le service à la clientèle, tout simplement remarquable. Les commodités sur le site, tels que les restaurants, le dépanneur, et les quelques boutiques rendent le séjour beaucoup plus simple. Les parents, autant que les enfants, apprécient l'ambiance et la disposition du site. La tranquillité, la vue et la mer font de cet endroit une destination de rêve. Un grand merci à Alberto et Jessica pour leurs nombreux conseils et leur disponibilité . Les photos sur le site reflètent à merveille l'unité réservée. Le grand balcon permet de relaxer face à la mer, pour les amoureux de l'ombre! Je recommande cet endroit à tous ceux qui envisagent des vacances entre amis, en couple ou en famille!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5
The unit was everything that was advertised and expected. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed there for 4 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The restaurants were great & people were wonderful. The view of the sea was something we will always remember.
The resort was wonderful . Several pools to pick from. General store was convenient and very accommodating when we ordered fish and chicken.
We've been to Barbados many times,alwaysy on the west coast. If there is one issue it is the sea on the east coast where the Crane resort is. The waters are "rough" as compared to the west coast.
If you are a pool person or if you like challenging surf, this is the place to go. It's GREAT!
We actually considered buying a unit at The Crane. But we enjoy the soft rolling waves of the West coast. We rented a car & went to the west coast several times as well as restaurants throughout the island. While the restaurants the Crane are wonderful if you are there for 4 weeks we needed to experience other restaurants on the island.on the South & West coast.A taxi ride to them was a bit too expensive daily.
If they had courtesy shuttle service to the West coast beaches I would buy a unit there and be vary happy with the resort and the option to go to calm waters. Taxi or rentals to different restaurant would be acceptable.
All that being said, it was a wonderful place and we thoroughly enjoyed the unit and the resort.
