Bowling Alley Hill Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ocean View Residences

We are now offering our own as well as a variety of one, two or three bedroom Ocean View or Park Residences units at the Crane. There is availability at all times. Let us know the type of unit you want and your check-in/departure dates, and we will book your suite for you. Anyone booking through us receives, after a 50% down payment, a confirmation/reservation number from the Crane and becomes a guest of the resort, with access to all amenities and resources. The only difference is that the booking is done through us, the owners, and at a remarkably lower cost.

PLEASE CONTACT US FOR PRICES ON 2 AND 3 BEDROOM APARTMENTS. 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 unit - 823 - on the second floor of building 8, one of the crane's ocean view towers. The prices we quote here are for unit 823 or an identical one bedroom ocean view unit.

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.

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 St. Joseph

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

Because of the substantial number of weeks we own at the Crane, we enjoy 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.

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a week at The Crane. It is a beautiful resort with everything you need for a perfect vacation. I would have given five stars but there were a couple issues. Upon arrival we had concerns about getting a room and an "extended" wait time to check in given a reservation mix up. Five stars to Jessica and Alberto for resolving the issue and we actually ended up in a much nicer room with a pool, awesome! Glad we had the pool because the air conditioning didn't work well. It was pretty hot in the room and eventually The Crane sent over a portable airco unit but it struggled and could not cool the place to a comfortable temperature. We later learned that the room was scheduled for an airco upgrade (much needed). I would definitely still recommend booking with Jessica and Alberto, they will do ALL that they can to make your stay the best, just follow up with regards to the airco to ensure you have a room that gets cool.

All the best to Jessica and Alberto, thanks again for everything!

A Gorgeous Resort!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 1 week at The Crane and all I can say is WOW!!! The resort and all its amenities was perfect! The beach incredible!!! Our unit was exactly as pictured and it was fantastic for our family. We made the arrangements through Alberto. It was my first time using VRBO and Alberto made the experience so easy. He answered all my inquiries promptly and was very patient! He was awesome and I would highly recommend booking through Alberto. When we return we will book through Alberto again. Thank you Alberto for setting this up!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have always wanted to stay at The Crane in a two bedroom with plunge pool. We decided to give HomeAway a try for this and found Alberto's contact info. He arranged the reservation and we got exactly what we wanted at an excellent price. This was so simple and allowed us to experience one of the nicest resorts we have ever visited. What a beautiful resort. Definitely will book through Alberto again.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this unit at The Crane. It was exactly like the pictures right down to the view. The location is great, close to the beach access and the village. The unit is well maintained and all of the amenities were first rate. The cleaning and concierge services provided by the resort were great. Alberto was incredibly helpful and patient with all of my questions, always responded quickly and offered lots of advice. We ate at all of the restaurants at the resort and enjoyed all of them. We also had the concierge arrange an island tour and had a wonderful driver, Junior. The whole island is beautiful, but the resort is paradise. We plan to go back and I hope to be able to rent this unit again.

Best stay we have had at Crane

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Crane at least 8 times and this experience was the best. First the owners were just amazing. Quick feedback, easy to work with and they checked in with us before we left for our trip, on our first day to see if everything was good and then a follow-up at the end to make sure we were satisfied. The unit is just perfect and I love Building 8 as it is right in front of Crane Beach and the access point and also next to the Village. The unit has a great view of the beach and for the price think the value is truly amazing. We plan to return as soon as we can and will totally rent this unit again!

Awesome Alberto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We sent 11 days at the Crane. Beyond the fact that this condo is AMAZING....I feel as though I acquired a new friend. Alberto is genuinely helpful. He answered all 10000000000000 questions I asked him.

FYI.....although there is A/C ..... we never used it. That breeze is awesome! The condo was huge. There are so many quiet little adventures to do at the resort. We walked around and looked at a the landscaping, we explored the original entrance to the old Crane hotel, we walked the old steps to the "Horse", we walked out along the cliff by the beach. So peaceful. Another FYI...Long distance to the US is free but only to landlines. As much as I loved my trip to Barbados and I loved the Crane...........I think the best part was Alberto. He is a genuinely kind soul. He would be the reason for a return trip to Barbados.
