For centuries, Crane Beach has been sought by both locals and visitors for its natural beauty and serenity. Pink, powder soft sand graces your feet, a lush coconut grove sways in the tropical breeze and a golden Caribbean sun help to make this the ultimate paradise – then there is the swimming.

Accessible by a staircase or a glass-front beach elevator (the only one of its kind in the Eastern Caribbean) and protected by a natural coral reef, Crane Beach boasts one of the best swimming venues on the island of Barbados. Besides being safe and having a gentle descent from shallow to deep, it's also soft on your feet as there are no sea urchins, stones or coral underneath.

Crane Beach’s playful waves are perfect for boogie boarding and body surfing. The Crane is #1 for Barbados travel.

About Nikki Maizels

We are a couple with 2 young children who got engaged in Barbados 20 years ago. We fell in love with the island back then for both its beauty and refinement. Our children have grown up on Crane Beach and love the boogie boarding, beach and fresh coconuts. My wife and I use this as our annual get away and our family as our annual family vacation. They only wish we could spend more time at our home away from home. We hope this tradition will continue and pass down to their children... The apt is available for rental 52 weeks per year! Advanced bookings are recommended.

Nikki Maizels purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Nikki Maizels chose World

The Island is safe and the people are amongst the friendliest and kindest anywhere. Barbados is as far South and East as you can get in the Caribbean hence is has beautiful year round weather usually affected by hurricanes and that can affect those Islands further North and West. The restaurants are fantastic all over Barbados and economically sound. With all these factors and so many more, we chose to buy multiple properties in Barbados and at no better spot than The Crane.

Glorious spot to recharge & relax

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at The Crane. Our accommodations were fantastic~Spacious, & comfortable with absolutely stunning views of the ocean! We utilized the kitchen, enjoying breakfast each & every morning while also enjoying a few dinners in. Our children also loved everything about their vacation. From the accommodations to the pools, beach, restaurants, cafe and friendly staff. We will most definitely be returning!

What a beautiful resort and the room was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The Crane is our favorite resort. The views are breathtaking and the pools and beach are second to none. The restaurants are top notch and for one week, we ate every meal there except for one dinner. We especially loved ending each night at the community bar mingling with the guests and enjoying the nightly entertainment. We made a ton of friends who we maintain relationships with. But please know that the Crane is in the isolated and quiet east coast so you can't just walk to different hotels and restaurants. Cabs would be necessary.

Our room was ocean view with a wonderful deck and plenty of space. The extra bath was a plus. And it was not a long walk to anything. And it was clean and well maintained.

Great resort, great room, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Crane Resort on Barbados. The room was absolutely perfect and with a balcony overlooking the ocean, we were in heaven. The room was impeccably clean and the owner, Nikki, gave us great information as we planned our vacation and promptly responded to all our inquiries. I can't recommend this property highly enough. We will be going back.

Exceeded Expectation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a very relaxing week in this unit. We have done several VRBOs all over the world and this was among the best. Unit is exactly as pictured; clean, well stocked and offers breathtaking views of Crane Beach. Owners were very responsive; from the initial inquiry to payment and answered a myriad of questions. We loved the location on the quieter side of the island. Great launching pad to explore Barbados. No need for AC...looked forward to sleeping with windows wide open and the lovely breeze and sounds of the waves. Service was top notch! Housekeeping, beach service, concierge, wait staff all went above and beyond. We will definitely return!
