Great spacious 2 bedroom apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks stay in this lovely apartment. The 2 bedroom apartment is airy, clean, spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony every morning and planning our day. A 3 minute walk to Crane Beach on a hot day makes this location paradise. Michael and Andria have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. Renting a car is preferable, specially if you want to see the island in all it’s beauty since the local bus service takes up to an hour to Bridgetown one way. The restaurants nearby are great, Marco Polo (best thin crust pizza is our favourite if you need a change from chicken and fish), Cutters and Del Roti. If you have never been to Barbados you will fall in love with island and it's people. It’s our third time and we will be back.

Pleasant, clean, and relaxing .....

  • 4 of 5

What a nice place to reside for a few weeks. Spent six weeks here and had a wonderful time. The apartments are very nice, spacey, and well appointed. Beaches were a short walk from the apartment. The bus stops into and out from the city were very close by. Getting somewhere on the buses was easy - getting back - not so reliable time wise. There are a few places to eat nearby but mainly you needed to travel a little ways to get into the heart of cities. Weather was wonderful even with the occasional little shower. Michael was there when ever needed, but the need was very minimal. He picks you up and drops you off at the airport any time of day. Grocery stores and mini-marts are fairly close but food costs on the Island are fairly pricey. Autos for hire were readily available but a bit pricey and the roads not so good. Also, right hand drive, but just had to think a bit.. All in all, We had a very memorable winter break on a Beautiful Island with wonderful residents who were all very friendly .....

like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment, which was a very short walk away from the crane beach. All the facilities worked well such as the washing machine,air conditioning and the oven. Micheal was always on hand if we needed any help. The rooms were clean and spacious. We also enjoyed playing in the garden with our toddler and baby. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend. It was perfect for our small family of 4.

Thank you very much.

Nicely located with public transport around the corner

  • 4 of 5

I had a lovely time at Crane Beach Apartments. The beds were comfy, washing and bathing were easy with plenty of (hot) water, and the wifi worked, all good value for money. The few times I needed Michel he was on the spot in no time, that was really wonderful. And it made me feel safe. I made use of the public transport and did some nice trips. It was an advantage to stay in St Philip, as there were always seats vacant on the busses. Travelling the Island took time though. The local restaurants, the ressort and the amazing sea views in the neighbourhood gave an extra dimension to my stay. Thanks, Michael!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Crane Beach Apartments were perfect for our needs! Spacious, clean, very well ventilated with great amenities. It is perfectly located to reach the best beaches on the island. It's located close to the basics, gas, restaurants and groceries, without the busyness of the city. Michael and Andrea were amazingly accommodating with any request, definitely above and beyond. They picked us up at the airport, surfboard and all! They gave us the lay of the land and everything we needed to feel comfortable. Soon after arriving, we rented a vehicle for our two week stay to check out other parts of the island. Our whole family loved everything about Barbados. We only met friendly, smiley people.

Thank you for being part of our fantastic vacation Michael and Andrea!

Breathtaking view only a few feet away from the beach. The apartment was very spacious and airy. There was so much to see and do, I never had a dull moment, in fact I felt like I needed a holiday, to get over this holiday. Michael was an amazing host, he was always there when you needed him, both day and night nothing was too much trouble for him. I loved this place so much, I will definitely be using this accommodation again. Once again Michael thank you for the opportunity to meet you, and being able to stay in such a wonderful apartment.

Relaxing environment after a day of fun and sun.Catch a glimpse of the aqua ocean and surrrounding countryside on the breezy patio. The two(2) bedrooms are air conditioned for your comfort, fully equipted kitchen and spacious living/dining room area.The Crane beach is very popular to locals and visitors especially on weekends. The sand is pinkish and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Take along your picnic baskets or use the services of the vendors on the beach. The apartment is located ont the bus route which stops outside your door. The Internationally knows Crane Resort is just half mile away, duty free shopping and a choice of three resturants for luxury dining. Cutters Deli just two minutes walk is a more local dining experience. The Crane palms restaurant recently reopened is very popular with guest at the Resort for a more interactive asmosphere and it also reatures a well stocked bar. Sunbury great house is about 5 miles away, very famous for weddings and local buffet lunches, a house tour takes you back to the seventeen hundreds with its well preserved furnoiture and clothing.
