Overview

About the property

There is availability at all times. Owning our unit outright allows us exchange privileges for 2 and 3 bed units as well. All prices and descriptions here apply to unit 823, our 1 bedroom. Anyone booking through us receives, after a 50% down payment, a confirmation/reservation letter from the Crane and becomes a guest of the resort, with access to all amenities and resources. The only difference is that the booking is done through us, the owners, and at a remarkably lower cost.

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 unit - 823 - on the second floor of building 8, one of the crane's ocean view towers.

Prices listed apply to the standard one bedroom ocean view units.

A standard ocean view one bedroom without plunge pool has two bathrooms. The bedroom features 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.

About Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu

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 worthwhile.

Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jessica Gill / Albert Abreu chose Barbados

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.

What makes this condo unique

Because of the substantial number of weeks we own at the Crane, we enjoy 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.

Beautiful Views - Beautiful Island!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 7/1/17-7/8/17. Our flight was delayed by a couple of hours. By the time we arrived, got our luggage and car, it was around 7pm when we arrived. We were met with warm smiles and a rum punch and check in was quick and smooth!

We upgraded to the room with a plunge pool, Rm 824A, which was the end room next to Rm 823. We had everything that we needed and it was furnished beautifully and very comfortable! During the day, just open the doors, but watch the little birds, they love to fly into the condo and steal the creamer packets! We only ran the air at night time... The grounds were beautiful. We did go to the Italian restaurant and the L'Azure, which has beautiful ocean views, food was good at both places. We had desserts from the Village Café a few times and also went to the General Store a couple of times! The beach area was very nice as well as the pool areas! We always saw grounds people working everyday to keep things looking beautiful! Everyone we encountered was extremely friendly!

We rented our car from Stoutes Car Rental, which I highly recommend getting out and exploring the island! Stoutes gave us a 10% discount because we were renting from Jessica/Alberto!

We visited the Wildlife Reserve, saw a lot of animals! we loved watching the monkey's and the babies! We also visited Oistins, walked the boardwalk in Hastings, went to Bathsheba, found a fish market and bought a bag of Flying Fish for $7.50 USD! We also took a sunset cruise with Calabaza and snorkeled with the sea turtles and over a shipwreck, which I highly recommend also! We found a place called Earthworks Pottery and bought a decorative plate. The people there let us come in and take pictures of them working and showed us around their store! We also went to the Concorde Museum on our last morning before heading to the airport and it was very interesting and enjoyable!

I will say that everyone was very friendly and it was very safe to get out and about! we were out exploring and needed to find a gas station and we found this man that was standing outside of his home by his car and we asked him where to go. He got in his car and we followed him and he led us out to the gas station! The Barbadians are very proud of their island! Definitely do not hesitate to book this condo and go explore Barbados!! We will definitely be back!!

beautiful resort with excellent, friendly staff

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in building 8 in May 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed our room which was a 1 bedroom ocean view suite in one of the newer buildings. It had an excellent breeze and views of the ocean in room 832. The Crane beach is breathtakingly beautiful though the ocean is a bit rough for swimming as it is on the Atlantic side. We took a tour of the island and felt our resort was by far the most beautiful and enjoyed the tranquility of the location. We also booked the Jammin' catamaran snorkel cruise through the resort which lasted the day and included a snorkel over 2 shipwrecks and a swim with the sea turtles. The crew was very attentive and so much fun. The barbecue lunch they served was delicious as well as rum punch and any adult beverage you wanted included in the price.. We saw some other cruisers on other boats but they did not look like they were having nearly as much fun. I highly recommend Jammin! We used our air conditioning only at night mostly because we were afraid of mosquitoes and wanted to close the windows but during the day it was not needed the breeze was so great. WE cooked breakfast in our unit and ate our dinner meals at the resort. Our favorite restaurant was D'Onofrios Italian. We ate there 3 times but also enjoyed the Zen, Carriage house Barbecue and L'Azure. There is a small grocery store for basics but limited variety, like the size of a large convenience store. I would definitely go back to Barbados again and would stay at the Crane!

Fantastic from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the Crane Resort. I was a little nervous booking via HomeAway rather than direct with the resort but this was unwarranted. Alberto was extremely helpful and easy to communicate with, the resort and apartment were exactly as described. We all had a brilliant time and will most definitely return and recommend to others. The food in the resort was excellent and we thought it was good value, the shop on site was the same price as the supermarket for milk etc. but was a little limited in choice. Overall an unforgettable family holiday. Thankyou Alberto.

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5

Alberto was awesome and answered all our questions. We've been to The Crane numerous times, but this was our first time booking through VRBO - let's just say we'll be booking with Alberto soon for next year!

Thanks Alberto!!!

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at the Crane both times booking thru Alberto.

We stayed for nearly 2 weeks in 2015 and for 1 week in 2016.

As mentioned in other reviews, the pictures are spot on...actually the pictures cannot convey the peacefulness, natural beauty, and tranquility of this place.

There are many different room styles throughout this resort but Alberto's condo is located in the prefect spot. It has the most amazing view of Crane Beach and the winds that breeze thru the condo are simply unforgettable.

I would say that the reason we love the Crane so much is really because of Alberto. He is like having awesome big brother who is truly invested in making sure everything goes smoothly. He is a kind and genuine man that I must meet personally someday. I can't imagine booking any other way.

The only issue we had was with our last stay but it was in no way Alberto's fault. The week we stayed one of the pools was closed for maintenance. There were plenty of other pools to swim in but the problem was it was the pool that was located in one of the historic buildings where we really enjoyed relaxing. We went during the slow season so I can understand scheduled maintenance, it's just that I felt the Crane should have been upfront about their scheduled maintenance so that guests could plan their vacation accordingly.

If I could emphasis anything about this review, it would be.....trust Alberto.

Ask him questions....he is so very honest.

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a week at The Crane. It is a beautiful resort with everything you need for a perfect vacation. I would have given five stars but there were a couple issues. Upon arrival we had concerns about getting a room and an "extended" wait time to check in given a reservation mix up. Five stars to Jessica and Alberto for resolving the issue and we actually ended up in a much nicer room with a pool, awesome! Glad we had the pool because the air conditioning didn't work well. It was pretty hot in the room and eventually The Crane sent over a portable airco unit but it struggled and could not cool the place to a comfortable temperature. We later learned that the room was scheduled for an airco upgrade (much needed). I would definitely still recommend booking with Jessica and Alberto, they will do ALL that they can to make your stay the best, just follow up with regards to the airco to ensure you have a room that gets cool.

All the best to Jessica and Alberto, thanks again for everything!
