Sporting Barbados: 2014 Edition

Sporting Barbados

East Coast Living

Ever since the advent of the Barbados Railway in 1881, affluent Barbadians seeking rest and relaxation have escaped to the other side of the island – the rejuvenating East Coast.

‘Far from the Madding Crowd’

While the likes of reality TV stars and celebrity footballers can be regularly spotted vacationing on the star-studded West Coast of Barbados, locals have historically taken the road less travelled – choosing the East Coast as their vacation getaway, relishing in uninterrupted miles of enchanting coastal scenery.

Charmingly rustic and breathtakingly beautiful, the East Coast represents the authentic ‘Bajan’ vacation, untouched by the passage of time. This is a different path, filled with sights of dramatic limestone cliffs and staggering rock formations as well as sounds of endless waves colliding with expanses of windswept beaches. This is the other side of Barbados… timeless, unspoilt and secluded.

Life slows down on the East Coast but there is certainly no lack of characteristically ‘Bajan’ places to see, things to do or people to meet – from the famed surfer’s Mecca, Soup Bowl, in Bathsheba (regarded by world champion surfer, Kelly Slater as among the ‘top three waves in the world’) to the locally popular Thursday Fish Fry at Martin’s Bay.

The East Coast has always held a special place in the hearts of Barbadians, and today, its quaint fishing villages are home to rustic ‘beach houses’ are second homes to fortunate Barbadian families and have likely been passed down from one generation to the next, rendering the prospect of ownership virtually impossible.

Introducing Beach Houses

Crane Resorts, developer of the highly successful Crane Residential Resort on the island’s South-East Coast, has always identified with those who want to ‘get away from it all.’ And now, in response to a growing demand from some to really get away, Crane Resorts is pleased to introduce its newest development – Beach Houses.

A secluded, low density 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. Stretching from Archer’s Bay in St. Lucy to Consett Bay in St. John, the East Coast of Barbados has been preserved so that future generations may forever enjoy the most spectacular natural beauty the Caribbean has to offer.

Beach Houses seamlessly marries the simple elegance and open spaces of contemporary architecture to the casual comfort of the traditional East Coast beach house. Feature 62 freestanding ‘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 6,000 sq.ft. of land and enjoy 180° of breathtaking ocean views. The resort will also feature a convenience store and full-service day spa.

Own Your Piece of Paradise. Forever.

Beach Houses, like its sister property The Crane, will afford whole and fractional ownership options, complete with the same flexibility and security – presenting the unique opportunity for ‘laid back’ luxury living for the privileged few.

Owners (including Whole Owners) receive unprecedented benefits including a rental pool option that has been profitable for all owners every year, turn-key services that cover everything 9including property taxes, all utilities, interior maintenance, daily maid service and replacement of furniture, fixtures and utensils etc.) and all the amenities and services and a 5-star resort.

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® (www.theregistrycollection.com).
