The Ideal 4-Night Itinerary at Beach Houses

A stay at Beach Houses by The Crane is a true reset of the mind, body and soul. The secluded location of these low-rise villas, the expansive design oriented to maximise the impact of unspoilt surroundings, as well as the mesmerising effect of the Atlantic Ocean, create an ideal setting for relaxation. Indeed, serenity is the only order of the day at Beach Houses.

If you’d like ideas on just how best to unwind and recharge on your Beach Houses escape, here’s the perfect 4-day itinerary for your future retreat.




Greet the day with gratitude with an early morning yoga routine. The refreshing Atlantic breeze will only add to the ambiance. The sunrise on Barbados’ East Coast is astonishing and you might very well be the first person on island to see it, as Beach Houses is perfectly perched at the very tip of the East coast.

After your relaxing start to the day, head inside and order your villa dining breakfast here. Have your pick between the various options including any of our breakfast packages, continental breakfast, or even a vegan option if vegan or vegetarian.

Then, kick up your feet and chill by the pool with a book or a good podcast. You’re on a break after all, and it’s difficult to imagine a better place to unwind than poolside at Beach Houses with its eye-level Atlantic vistas. 


Explore the Coast

By now you are probably wondering what the natural surroundings look like. The East Coast of Barbados has an untouched, rugged appeal that is perfect for the dauntless adventurer to explore. Enjoy a walk while taking in the surrounding areas of Culpepper Island (only accessible by low tide or an able swimmer), Skeete’s Bay, Ragged Point Lighthouse and Deebles Point. Be careful to wear sturdy sneakers when traversing the cliff rocks.

Dine at D’Onofrio’s 

D’Onofrio’s is only 15 minutes away, and is situated at the heart of Beach Houses’ sister property The Crane. D’Onofrio’s offers Southern Italian fare with a relaxed ambiance. We highly recommend any of their pizza options for a casual night out, or the veal with the finest wine for a touch of luxury. D’Onofrio’s will appeal to both experiences.



Meditation and Mindfulness

This morning, try putting away the electronic distractions and take some time to consider how best you can recenter your mind. Some people prefer deep breathing exercises, others may practise meditation, while some prefer to write in a gratitude journal. However you do it, take this time to engage in mindfulness and deep reflection.

Have groceries delivered right to your door from the Crane’s General store online link and whip up a feast using the state of the art kitchen at the Beach Houses, featuring a massive kitchen island with its built-in stove and steel hood, ovens and provided cutlery and dishes.



You can book a spa treatment with the Serenity Spa at The Crane, and the therapist will come to you at  Beach Houses. You can feel free to select your massage, pedicure, manicure or full body treatment as Serenity is an all-encompassing spa with an extensive range of indulgent services. Simply contact our Spa to organise this experience at your villa. Complete your relaxing day with dinner from D’Onofrio’s delivered right to your villa.



Explore Barbados

If you’ve booked the Explorer package, you know you can look forward to a day of island exploring on your Beach Houses break. This experience begins with the premium daily breakfast, and then you will be whisked away from your beach villa by a shared shuttle service to embark on a thrilling Trail, Tram & Rum Day. This experience includes the Harrison’s Cave Signature Tram Tour, followed by a delicious lunch at the Cave, and the Mount Gay Signature tour, which includes four rum tastings and free rum punch.

After a day of activity, you will likely return to your villa happy, soporific and tipsy! No one will blame you for an early night.



Enjoy nature

For your final day, stay close to your new home and sleep in, you deserve it. Then pack a simple meal, and have a low-frills picnic brunch at Three Houses Park, a quiet public park close by. Filled with trees, it’s a wonderful spot to sit and take in nature, and to reflect on what has been a great break so far.


Dine out

Enjoy a luxurious dinner at Zen, a Zagat-Rated Restaurant offering the finest in Japanese and Thai cuisine on the island. Then, while away the night by enjoying live entertainment at Bar 1887 in the heart of The Crane Village.



Just before checking out, enjoy your last relaxing moments at the perfect escape just taking in the breathtaking views of the East Coast, from a poolside advantage, of course.
