About the property

There is availability at all times. Owning our unit outright allows us exchange privileges for 2 and 3 bed units as well. All prices and descriptions here apply to unit 823, our 1 bedroom. Anyone booking through us receives, after a 50% down payment, a confirmation/reservation letter 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.

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.

Prices listed apply to the standard one bedroom ocean view units.

A standard ocean view one bedroom without plunge pool has two bathrooms. The bedroom features 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.

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 worthwhile.

Why Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu chose Saint Philip

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.

Outstanding Vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I were looking for nice warm place to vacation for a week in March, and we came upon an availability at The Crane. We quickly booked and Alberto helped us through the process, answering any questions and making sure the Crane responded promptly. We flew direct from Newark, NJ to Barbados on JetBlue. On arrival we easily picked up our rental car (Courtesy) and drove to the Crane which was about 10 minutes from the airport.

We found the property to be beautifully landscaped and have many resources on site. The beach and pools (1 adult and 4 kids) were refreshing and was where we spent most of our days, swimming and ordering food which staff members would deliver by the pool, very nice! The unit was very nice and well kept and staff would come by everyday for housekeeping, including doing the dishes! We had stopped at a grocery store on the way and cooked breakfast and an occasion meal in the well equipped kitchen. My favorite part of the unit were the doors that opened completely up and overlooked the ocean. We would leave them open at night and listen to the ocean as we slept. We used the air conditioning one night ($2/hour) but besides that the temperature ranged from 76 to 84 everyday, perfect! The restaurants on site were excellent, there are 4. Our daughter has life threatening food allergies so we were a little nervous to book our first trip out of the country but were pleased with how the staff handled the allergies, starting with the front office which created tickets for the restaurants when we made reservations. While at the restaurant, the waitstaff and chefs were very agreeable and watchful of the food that was served to our daughter. We had no issues with allergies while there and felt very comfortable eating at the many restaurants.

Our daughter especially like the kids academy which was centrally located. She did arts and crafts with the staff for a little while in the afternoon where she met other kids there and eventually saw and played with them at other places around the property.

Overall we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!!!

The Crane

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Crane. Alberto was a huge help making the reservation and answering all of our questions.

The Resort is beautiful....with lots of pools, restaurants and shops.

The ocean however was extremely rough with large amounts of difficult for swimming.

Truly paradise

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was everything and more. The unit is large and spacious with a breathtaking view on a huge balcony. There are two bathrooms and the bedroom is large with a 4 poster king bed. We slept to the sound of the surf every night. The resort is amazing. It’s so quiet but has several pools and a spectacular beach. The people that work at the Crane are so friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay special. I can’t wait to go back.
