Pink, powder-soft sand graces your feet, a lush coconut grove sways in the tropical breeze and a golden Caribbean sun helps to make this the ultimate paradise for individuals, families and couples.

And 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.

Once you gaze out over the sparkling waters of Crane Beach at the never-ending vista of blues, it becomes obvious why USA Today declared Crane Beach, “Best Caribbean Beach’ – 2015”.

About Chuck Whitmore

We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and have fallen in love with Barbados. We are celebrating our 25th visit to Barbados and our 25th wedding anniversary. We have owned a timeshare in Barbados since 1992 and watched the Historic Crane Hotel transform into a unique luxury resort that we currently enjoy. We now own 11 weeks and enjoy renting our units to friends and family.

Chuck Whitmore purchased this resort in 2011

Why Chuck Whitmore chose Saint Philip

This resort is the oldest in Barbados, first opening in 1887. It is a blend of restored history and new buildings traditionally furnished with handmade mahogany reproduction antiques. The service and furnishing blow us away!

Fantastic stay at the crane

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful 2 Bedroom deluxe garden Suite from chuck Whitmore who was extremely responsive and helpful during the inquiry and booking process. The suite was wonderful and spacious, lovely furnishings, private garden, pool, patio. We spent much of our time outside. The resort is phenomenal in every way. Beautiful landscape and scenery. Great beach and pools. We loved it all!
