About Jim Milbourne

Grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada - but now live in Austin, TX, USA.

Jim Milbourne purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Jim Milbourne chose Barbados

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Fantastic Property - You Will Love Staying Here

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Crane from March 9th - 16th. We did not stay in this unit, but we had the pleasure of meeting Jim (the owner) and getting a tour of his condo. You won't be sorry if you book his condo!!! Beautifully maintained and fantastic views. Jim was such a nice man and very informative on things to do, both within the resort and elsewhere on the island. We will definitely be back and stay in Jim's condo.

Gem of a Property

  • 5 of 5

The toughest thing we had to do was decide to walk the pristine, picturesque beach or the beautiful gardens on the resort. Or should we dine at the Zen or Azure or order a take-out pizza from D'Onofrios?

We stayed three days at the historic hotel and then a week at Jim's condo. The transition from rooms was smooth. The unit was spacious, nicely appointed with a great view. Housekeeping was efficient and fresh towels and linens were provided daily.

We rented a car to explore the east coast. Directional signs were often only a "suggestion" and we found ourselves lost on bumpy, back roads. However, the Bajans were helpful in getting us turned around and a bus driver even got out of his vehicle to help us....thus an example of the Bajan spirit everywhere.

We are contemplating a return next winter. This is especially compelling as our weather is -15 with the wind chill factor today.

Special thanks to the owner who made this a worry free booking with ideas for "island exploring". All in all .................a terrific vacation choice.

The Crane is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at The Crane and it was as beautiful as we had remembered. This unit has the most amazing view and the breeze at night made it so we never needed the air conditioner once! We were a group of three, it was me, my husband and my best friend. We rented a car and did quite a bit of island exploring. We would wake up and enjoy a coffee and banana bread down at the cafe/bakery in The Crane and then for lunch hopped over to Cutters for a flying fish sandwich and a Banks beer or their famous rum punch (we are all addicted to Cutters and already miss it). For a few of our adventures we visited North Point, St Nicolas Abby Rum Distillary, Oistens Fish Market, and St. Johns church. Although The Crane is a little out of the way, it was never too far from any point on the island once my husband was comfortable driving. The people on the island are so nice and friendly. We will definitely be back to The Crane in the near future, we love it here!!!!

Can you say... PARADISE??

  • 5 of 5

This is our first visit to the Crane and we were lucky to find Jim, as our reservations were made within 60 days of departure. The location was simply breathtaking. Upon arrival you are given either a RUM PUNCH or a non alcoholic FRUIT PUNCH to help you relax after a long flight. The accommodations overlook the Ocean. And as others have stated, you wake up to the beauty and the sounds of absolute perfection. The unit is totally updated and very spacious for a one bedroom condo. The kitchen is complete with appliances, so you can make this your home away from home. TRUST ME YOU WONT WANT TO LEAVE. The beaches are clean, the staff is very attentive and always willing to assist with any questions you may have. My husband and I were fortunate enough to meet JIM while we were vacationing and he was very eager to give us both site seeing and restaurant recommendations. If you are planning on visiting the Island of Barbados, you can't loose with this location. It is off the beaten path, and there is very little traffic this side of the island. Please add this to your bucket list, as you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Yes, I guess you were fortunate that I had a cancellation. Or should I say I was fortunate! It was a pleasure to meet you both. I don't get to meet too many of my clients. Locals will tell you, once you have been to Barbados more than once, then you are "Bajan". Or as they say " all o' we is Bajan". Big thanks! Jim

Owner's Response: I'm very glad you guys liked the Crane and my suite! I'm especially glad you were able to get out in a rental car and explore the unique, unspoiled places Barbados has to offer. It doesn't take too long to get used to driving on the "other" side of the road! Thanks for the nice review! Jim
