This was our seventh stay at The Crane. The Crane is situated at the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean and is truly a unique property where the views, the pools and the beach simply can't be beat. The units are well appointed and have all the amenities you could want. Each time we visit and bring friends, they can’t believe how beautiful and comfortable The Crane is. I have read complaints from others about the air conditioning, but with the wonderful breezes coming off the ocean, if you closed the windows and used the A/C you would really miss out on hearing the waves crashing and feeling those breezes. If there is an area where it falls short, it is in keeping all the little things (ice makers, coffee makers, dishwashers, etc.) in the units at 100%, which is a tall task for such a large place. I have been told that this is a top priority and that a new system and staffing changes are in place to assure that this happens.
Everyone working at The Crane is friendly and helpful, but on each trip there are a number of Crane staff who really help to make our stay special. This time our special thanks go to Sabrina, our wonderful housekeeper and Lisa, who made sure we had everything we needed in our unit, Susan and Errol at the Carriage House, who make lunch by the pools overlooking the ocean even more enjoyable, Michael and Patrick at the 1887 who made us feel at home, Peter at L’Azure who always managed to find us a table outside even when they were all booked, Maureen who gardens at the pools and makes the plantings look so beautiful and Darnley who is patient and takes the time to listen. I cannot forget Korey, who we met on this trip and got to know a little – thanks for everything.
This is a place you will not forget. We can’t wait for our next visit.
