Property description

Escape from the busy South Coast to the peaceful and relaxing Crane - away from it all! Enjoy the wonderful breezes of the Atlantic Ocean whilst sitting on your patio listening to the waves and watching the breathtaking views of the turquoise sea!
Come and stay at the top floor at Mermaid Apartments, overlooking tropical gardens with coconut and palm trees. Enjoy the tastefully furnished and appointed 3 bedroom 2 bath unit which has free Wi-Fi and is a 5 minute walk to the famous Crane Beach. We rent the apartment as a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom to increase our rentals. When rented as a 1 or 2 bedroom, the other bedrooms are unavailable. You will have the entire 1.800 sq. ft. top floor to yourself.

The property is fully fenced and has a gate. Situated on a quiet residential road with luxury mansions across the street. Perfect for your Honeymoon, so peaceful and romantic yet great for families or several couples.

This corner bedroom features a wicker dressing table and a full length mirror and a ceiling fan. All beds (master and guest) are outfitted with sheets and bedspreads. Enjoy the views of the garden and Atlantic Ocean, as well as the wonderful breezes from three windows. The three floor-to-ceiling closets give you ample room for your clothes and feature slat doors. The floors are tiled and have throw rugs.

The master bath features a large glass block shower and a vanity with lots of cupboard space underneath. You’ll love the cross breezes provided by windows on either side. The large mirror will make getting ready that much easier. The floors are tiled. Same features on second bathroom.

GUEST BEDROOMS HIGHLIGHTS
The two 12’ by 14' guest bedrooms feature two Queen Size beds with dual side wicker tables with drawers and 2 lamps. They each have three floor-to-ceiling closets with slat doors.

KITCHEN HIGHLIGHTS
Our Chef’s Kitchen is Domus from Italy and features stainless steel appliances which include a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer equipped with filtered water and ice, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave and stacked washer/dryer. Smart granite countertops and tiled floors. Fully equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm! The kitchen provides one of the two entrances to the apartment.

If you don't want to cook when you are on vacation we can arrange a cook for you at a small additional cost.

LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS
The living room offers a lovely sofa which makes watching a DVD on the 26” TV great entertainment. You can also listen to the radio or play CDs. The furnishings are a flashback to the old days of Barbados Plantocracy, featuring mahogany end tables with 2 lamps and a coffee table. Admire the ocean views and lush gardens whilst sitting in your lovely wicker chair.

DINING ROOM HIGHLIGTS
Enjoy dinner with your guests at the round mahogany table which sits six. Ceiling fans compliment the living and dining rooms, along with lovely parquet floors and throw rugs. Set the mood with some candles.

READING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS
At the front of the apartment and facing south is your reading room which features a desk in one corner, equipped with free Wi-If. Better still, relax in the armchair and read a book. We didn’t forget the side table to rest your cocktail on! Tiled floors and throw rugs complete the reading room which enjoys windows on both sides.

PATIO HIGHLIGHTS
No doubt this is where you’ll spend most of your time. The chairs on the covered 180 sq. ft. patio will beckon you to sip a cocktail whilst watching and listening to the magnificent ocean and keeping cool from ocean breezes. You will probably enjoy eating out here and lounging on the comfortable chaise lounge which has a cushion and adjustable back.

ROOF TOP HIGHLIGHTS
Last but not least, should you wish to laze at home and sunbathe, you can visit the roof deck which has by far the best view in the house and is a great place to snap a few pictures to take home with you. See Africa from the roof deck! So quiet and relaxing.

GARDEN HIGHLIGHTS
Mermaid Villa Apartments is situated on half an acre and features beautiful lush tropical gardens, a bay leaf tree, lime tree, coconut trees and many varieties of tropical palms. We have many hibiscus plants, croutons, silver dollars – to name just a few. We invite you to take a walk around the garden and enjoy it. Sample a coconut from our tree.

LOCATION HIGHLIGHTS
Located steps to the world famous Crane Beach, a 10 minute drive to Grantley Adams International Airport and a half hour drive to the capital, Bridgetown, Mermaid Apartments is close to all amenities but offers peace and quiet. Six Roads Supermarket is 5 minutes away. Barbados' oldest hotel, The Crane Hotel, and Cutters are among your neighbourhood restaurants. Try the local Oistins Fish Fry on Fridays or shop for fruits and vegetables at many nearby vendors. The ice cream van comes by at night! Many sports are available for you in Barbados.

If you are planning to rent a car, we can connect you with the local company we use. Great service and great prices.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We grew up in Barbados and now both live in Canada. We still visit regularly.

Why the Owner Chose The Crane:
Our family, the Chandlers, were some of the first settlers in Barbados, arriving in 1637. This property came to us from out mother's side of the family. Our great-grandfather, Sir Herbert Greaves, purchased the land and it has passed down to us via his daughter and granddaughter who was our mother. We are the fourth generation to own this property.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We just love the peace and tranquility of Mermaid Apartments. Being away from the noise and bustle makes this the perfect place to relax and unwind. Sitting on the patio reading a book and all you hear is the ocean, the birds and the wonderful Atlantic breezes. At night you will be serenaded by the local 'Whistling Frogs'. Being on the top floor of a concrete building enhances the quiet. Mermaid boasts beautiful gardens. There are windows on four sides. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are breathtaking, you can see forever. Barbados is a fun and safe island, only 21 miles long and 14 miles wide.
