About the Owner

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 worth while.

Historical elegance and a great value

  • 4 of 5
The Crane is an excellent property sitting atop the coral cliffs overlooking an amazing beach. Our stay was extremely relaxing between the mornings at the Crane beach and afternoons in one of several pools. The site has most everything you need including excellent restaurants, shopping and a small grocery. Our one bedroom unit was very nicely equipped and provided ample room to spread out. The best feature was the constant heavenly breeze provided by the islands trade winds flowing from Europe.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider returning to The Crane!

Spectacular setting, gorgeous condo, all-around 10

  • 5 of 5
Hard to sum up such an idyllic and glorious time! From the get-go, Alberto was wonderful: Responsive, flexible, supportive and helpful. Our dates were funky -- they didn't fit into the normal Sat-Sat -- but he made them work. We'd rent from him again in an instant. Now for The Crane: Wow. The photos don't do it justice, because though you can see that it's a beautifully designed complex, what you can't see is how cleverly it integrates its old 19th-century grace with modern aesthetics and convenience. You stumble upon nooks and crannies and all sorts of mini-places that make you sigh at their beauty. The beach is as lovely as it's cracked up to be -- though the surf is truly a bit rough -- and the Crane has everything from casual to fancy restaurants and tip-top service in every way. My favorite moment: We asked for a tour of the landscaping because I was so curious about the amazing tropical blooms we saw all around us, and -- in typical Crane style -- it turned into a fabulous grand tour by Edwin, the landscaping chief, that lasted more than an hour (and taught me dozens of new types of plants.) The condo was just a few yards from the sea, and we never tired of the non-stop breezes and endlessly waving palms. The condo's design was brilliant -- we were a family of four and never felt crowded because everything so opened onto the sea, and the kitchen was well-equipped enough for cooking a few real meals and every breakfast. The furnishings were stately and impressive, the Wifi worked fine, and the housekeeping service was magical. The staff was as impeccably impressive and friendly as other reviews suggest. Clearly, the Crane is the kind of place that people keep coming back to, and it's easy to see why...Huge thanks to Alberto for making this memorable vacation possible.

Vacances parfaites en famille!

  • 5 of 5
Un endroit parfait pour passer des vacances sans tracas! Le site du Crane ainsi que le condo sont d'une condition impeccable. Notre accueil fut très chaleureux et le service à la clientèle, tout simplement remarquable. Les commodités sur le site, tels que les restaurants, le dépanneur, et les quelques boutiques rendent le séjour beaucoup plus simple. Les parents, autant que les enfants, apprécient l'ambiance et la disposition du site. La tranquillité, la vue et la mer font de cet endroit une destination de rêve. Un grand merci à Alberto et Jessica pour leurs nombreux conseils et leur disponibilité . Les photos sur le site reflètent à merveille l'unité réservée. Le grand balcon permet de relaxer face à la mer, pour les amoureux de l'ombre! Je recommande cet endroit à tous ceux qui envisagent des vacances entre amis, en couple ou en famille!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5
The unit was everything that was advertised and expected. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed there for 4 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The restaurants were great & people were wonderful. The view of the sea was something we will always remember.
The resort was wonderful . Several pools to pick from. General store was convenient and very accommodating when we ordered fish and chicken.
We've been to Barbados many times,alwaysy on the west coast. If there is one issue it is the sea on the east coast where the Crane resort is. The waters are "rough" as compared to the west coast.
If you are a pool person or if you like challenging surf, this is the place to go. It's GREAT!
We actually considered buying a unit at The Crane. But we enjoy the soft rolling waves of the West coast. We rented a car & went to the west coast several times as well as restaurants throughout the island. While the restaurants the Crane are wonderful if you are there for 4 weeks we needed to experience other restaurants on the island.on the South & West coast.A taxi ride to them was a bit too expensive daily.
If they had courtesy shuttle service to the West coast beaches I would buy a unit there and be vary happy with the resort and the option to go to calm waters. Taxi or rentals to different restaurant would be acceptable.
All that being said, it was a wonderful place and we thoroughly enjoyed the unit and the resort.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from our Christmas holiday at The Crane. What a fantastic vacation we had. Alberto and Jessica’s unit was beautiful. It is in the perfect location close to all, including the beach. Their unit is in pristine condition, very roomy with two bathrooms and a beautiful living room and full kitchen. The service we received from The Crane was second to none. Housekeeping was fantastic, anything we needed they were there in a flash. The concierge and front desk staff were also excellent helping with car rental, dinner reservations and late check out. The beach, one of the most beautiful in the world, and weather were also wonderful. The unit has a beautiful view of Crane Beach and we loved the beautiful ocean breeze the unit gets at night. We couldn't have asked for more.

Alberto was an absolute delight to deal with – from answering my million questions, to even following up with a check in to be sure everything was alright while we were there. We cannot thank Alberto and Jessica enough for allowing us the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home at The Crane. My family and I look forward to many more vacations at The Crane and staying in beautiful Unit 823. Thank you Thank you Alberto & Jessica!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
I was a little skeptical booking through homeaway because it seemed to good to be true. However, Alberto was very helpful and reassuring in the process leading up to our arrival. Once we arrived at the crane(15minute drive from airport), all expectations we're exceeded and I knew I made the right decision.

The room was conveniently located next to the beach and restaurants. It's was as pictured; nicely decorated with a spacious layout. It can easily accommodate 4 people. The ocean front units get a strong cross breeze so we didn't use the AC.

The pools are nice but the beach is the best I've been to. Soft pink sand with a rough ocean that was great for body boarding and surfing. There is also a 15ft high cliff to jump off of.

The crane has a restaurant on the beach that serves lunch and drinks. The beach staff will help set up chairs and umbrellas as well as deliver you "RUM PUNCH" and food.

All restaurants were good but pricey. The grounds and views were amazing. The locals were very pleasant.

I would highly recommend staying at the crane and for the deal of a life time, book it through Alberto. I plan on returning!

Please feel free to contact me for reference or with any questions.

Location

From the Owner

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 favourite along with D'Onofrio's Trattoria located in 'The Village' which 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.
