What a delight to arrive in paradise only to find that the bungalow we rented was as charming as the island itself. From the practicality of a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, two very good size bedrooms, and two full baths, to a patio that almost doubled the interior common space that amplified the sound of the crashing ocean waves only one short block from the house. The authenticity of staying in a neighborhood with all the accomplished locals really added to the richness of the experience...something that tourists who stay in the resorts just don't get to experience. The highlight, by far, was the fact that we could walk to secluded beaches only two minutes from the house, complete with unbelievable rock cliffs and cave-like features...and all accessible with the stair access to these pockets of paradise. The convenience of The Crane Resort and the public access to Crane Beach with great waves, clear water, and no undercurrent (and the only east coast beach where you can swim because the other east coast beaches are too rough for swimming) was priceless. Hint: when you're at the beach, make sure to take advantage of the beach delivery service offered by Cutters ( www.cutters.bb )....best flying fish sandwich and rum punch on the island! Thanks Roger! To top it off, Jane was a gracious host, always available for matters around the house or "insider" advice on activities on the island. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of housing options. We will definitely be back!
