Shared Caribbean Luxury

Synonymous with luxury shared ownership in Barbados, The Crane Resort presents an attractive investment opportunity for discerning overseas property investors. By James Matthews

Set against the spectacular backdrop of Crane Beach and voted “Best Caribbean Beach” by USA Today’s Readers – The Crane is the oldest operating resort in the Caribbean. Since 1887, this iconic resort’s promise of panoramic ocean views, ultra-spacious residences and world-class amenities and services, has made it a favourite tropical respite of British holidaymakers. But beyond the views, it’s the unique shared ownership offering that is endearing the resort to luxury property investors.

OWNERSHIP THAT MAKES SENSE

A pioneer of the shared ownership model in Barbados, The Crane has long afforded property investors the opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of a luxurious second-home lifestyle in a resort setting, without the financial commitment of an outright residential purchase.

The Crane’s shared ownership proposition is now proving to be even more attractive for would-be British investors, allowing them to match financial outlay with actual property usage. Buyers have the flexibility of owning a fraction of a specific residence for a specific time each year, ranging from one week to several months. Owners of four weeks or more also have the added benefit of eligibility for The Crane’s attractive rental pool programme, which allows owners to benefit from rental income for all unused weeks.

UNPRECEDENTED VALUE

From cascading cliff-top pools to award-winning restaurants, The Crane offers all the luxury amenities and services one would expect, but at a fraction of the cost of comparable luxury developments. Its secret lies in the developer – Crane Resorts’ – model of vertical integration. With all aspects of business undertaken in-house, from design and construction to operations, the resort can by-pass expensive third party suppliers and pass on these savings to owners by way of low, fixed purchase prices and annual fees.

FLEXIBILITY OF USE

In addition to owning the right to a specific residence at the same time each year, Crane Owners can enjoy the ultimate flexibility with vacation exchanges within RCI® Points’ network of 4,500 resorts worldwide, in addition to over 200 exclusive private residence clubs in The Registry Collection. With the resort’s No1 rating in both exchange networks, Crane Owners benefit from exceptional vacation exchange trading power with the ability to trade one week at The Crane for multiple weeks at other resorts.

SECURITY OF INVESTMENT

The Crane has been owned and managed by the same company for over 45 years. Property investments are protected by a third-party trust structure administered by First National Trustee Company (FNTC). Through this structure, ownership can be willed, transferred, or sold at any time.
