The Crane Residences are located on the Breezy southeast coast of Barbados - very comfortable!
Year Purchased: 2000
About: Grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada - but now live in Austin, TX, USA.
Why The Crane: Barbados is the leading English-speaking island destination in the Southern Caribbean for North American, British and European tourists. Barbadians (“Bajans”) don’t face many of the problems that seem to plague other Caribbean nations.
Relative lack of crime: A sizable middle class and a 97% literacy rate. We have rented a car for many consecutive years now—travelled all over the Island, day and night - and never felt threatened or un-save.
High sanitation standards: You can drink the water straight from the tap, due in part, to the natural coral stone base of the island.
Modern infrastructure: One of the best road systems in the Caribbean. Also, Grantley Adams Airport has recently been enlarged and renovated.
Stable political climate: No “bloody coups”. The British colonized Barbados 300 years ago and is the only Caribbean island to have never changed hands among European powers. Still known as “Little England” because of the quiet and well mannered nature of the Bajan people.
Upmarket Tourist Destination: No “Spring-Breakers” here!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The Crane proudly sits on the cliff above the pale pink sands of Crane Beach, truly a stunning setting! The interior design of The Crane suites are just as grand! Old World Colonial charm! Bldg. #4 features high wooden tray ceilings in the living room and master bedroom. Wall surfaces are of native coral stone. Exquisite colonial replica furniture throughout, is hand carved from solid mahogany. Historical framed prints adorn the walls. The Crane is NOT your average large, generic 'chain type' resort!
