The Crane condo description

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, 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.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose The Crane:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Our prices reflect discounts of up to 65% on what one would pay if booking through the hotel or such sites as 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.
