So much more than sun, sea and sand, Barbados is a truly diverse and captivating tropical paradise. Steeped in history, tradition and culture, this tiny Caribbean island exudes a natural charm that is uniquely ‘Bajan’.
An oasis of beautiful contradictions, Barbados’ calm, turquoise waters and white sand beaches can give way to breathtaking, limestone hills and staggering rock formations in the blink of an eye. A rural landscape dotted with quaint, sleepy fishing villages is also the picturesque backdrop to a flurry of music festivals, carnivals and sporting tournaments.
Barbados offers an experience that touches the mind, heart and soul – friendly smiles, exquisite cuisine, pulsating rhythmic vibes, contrasting coasts and of course, world-famous rums.
Welcome to our paradise…
Escape to the
Charmingly rustic and breathtakingly beautiful, the East Coast represents the authentic Barbados, untouched by the passage of time. There are no jet skis, condominiums or night clubs here, only dramatic limestone cliffs, endless waves colliding with expanses of windswept beaches and a way of life not seen since days gone by. This is the other side of Barbados… timeless, unspoilt and secluded.
Holding a special place in the hearts of Barbadians, 99% of the East Coast, stretching from Archer’s Bay in St. Lucy to Consett Bay in St. John, has now been set aside as a National Park so that future generations may forever enjoy the most spectacular natural beauty the Caribbean has to offer.
Today, its quaint fishing villages are home to rustic ‘beach houses’, many of which are second homes to a few fortunate Barbadian families. As development remains extremely restricted on the East Coast, ‘beach houses’ are passed down from one generation to the next, rendering the prospect of ownership virtually impossible – until now.
A secluded, low density and eco-friendly development overlooking Skeete’s Bay Beach and Culpepper Island, Beach Houses has been specially designed to accentuate the property’s exclusive location on the 1% of the East Coast that remains outside of Barbados’ National Park.
The terraced, single-story design is a bold departure from typical architectural ethos, serving to camouflage rather than to emphasise. The verdant landscape displaced by each building’s footprint has been thoughtfully moved to the roofs, revealing clear sight lines as the development effortlessly recedes from view.
Featuring 63 free standing ‘beach houses’ and a small boutique hotel spread across a gently sloping, 50 acre hillside, Beach Houses’ two- and three-bedroom residences each sit on approximately 8,900 sq. ft. of land and command breathtaking ocean views.
Inspired by the idea of “really getting away”, Beach Houses delivers a Grenadines feel of seclusion – without giving up anything Barbados has to offer.
Beach Houses is the ideal tropical luxury retreat for those who prize peace, tranquility and natural beauty. Each aspect of Beach Houses’ design was conceptualised to achieve a harmonious experience of the surrounding natural environment, in complete privacy and serenity.
Beach Houses seamlessly marries the simple elegance and open spaces of contemporary architecture to the casual comfort of the traditional East Coast beach house. Generously scaled and beautifully appointed, each residence features floor-to-ceiling glass windows for spectacular ocean views, 2 infinity edge private pools with hot tubs (one 37 ft wide for the main residence and the other 19 ft wide for the “lock-off” studio), private patios offering a “no tan-lines” level of privacy, outdoor showers, hammocks, BBQ grills and built-in owner’s storage.
The open plan and muted tones create a space that is constantly refreshing and the blurred lines between the indoor and the outdoor living spaces place the resident in complete sensory connection with nature.
Beach Houses provides “laid back” luxury for a privileged few. An intimate community of residents will enjoy a secluded beach, 2 restaurants, a dramatic bar and a state-of-the-art wellness centre – all featuring extraordinary panoramic ocean views. The resort will also feature a flood-lit tennis court, a full-service day spa and a convenience store.
Owners will also enjoy privileged access to sister property, the historic Crane Residential Resort, taking advantage of its world-class amenities and services including of course, the famous Crane Beach – widely acknowledged as one of the best beaches in the world.
Ownership at Beach Houses offers you a home-away-from-home tailored to your individual needs. Owners receive unprecedented benefits, including the amenities and services of a 5-star resort; turn-key services that cover everything (including property taxes, all utilities, interior maintenance, daily maid service and replacement of furniture, fixtures and utensils etc.) and a rental pool option that has always been profitable.
Beach Houses’ ownership also brings with it access to over 200 of the world’s most luxurious fractional properties and private residence clubs through membership in The Registry Collection® (theregistrycollection.com).
Ownership at Beach Houses is available on a Fractional, Quarter Share or Whole Ownership basis and is protected by a third party trustee. At current pre-construction pricing, Beach Houses offers an unprecedented opportunity for capital appreciation.
Beach Houses will be built and operated by Crane Resorts, developer and operator of the award-winning AAA Four Diamond Crane Residential Resort. With a rich history spanning over 125 years in hotel operations and over two decades in property management and luxury real estate development, Crane Resorts is now looking forward to establishing Beach Houses as its second worldclass resort.
Crane Resorts’ uncompromising approach to development has resulted in an enviable reputation built on marrying spectacular oceanfront real estate, luxurious residences and five-star amenities and services with unprecedented value. Crane Resorts has also established a tradition of providing consistent rental profits for all owners for all weeks not reserved for themselves, unrivalled vacation exchange opportunities as well as fixed low shared ownership prices that invite comparison.
Crane Resorts is proud of where it has been – and even more proud of where it is headed.
