Think beachfront property in Barbados is only for Millionaires? Well head over to the wilder, quieter Atlantic east coast where Crane Resort is selling two, three and four-bedroom Beach Houses on a fractional and a whole ownership basis from US$180,000 (£140,250). That price gives you four weeks each year in a generously sized contemporary home next to national parkland where large patios enable you to watch Atlantic waves crash on the sandy beach.
Beach Houses is a low-density, eco-friendly development on an unspoilt and beautiful part of Barbados. The first nine homes will be completed this winter with 63 planned in total on the 50-acre site, all single storey and detached with private terraces and plunge pools and all artfully placed for the best sea views.
Residents will have their own pool, restaurant an spa and can use extensive sports and dining facilities of The Crane Hotel, ten minutes’ drive away.
