Enter this secret garden through a doorway that has a sign hanging over head saying, ‘No Worries’ which sets the tone for your vacation. Go down a winding pathway, past the waterfall, past the intimate outdoor lounging areas, past two inviting pools and arrive at your room or suite. This does not feel like a hotel at all but more like one of those places you might get a peek of on a luxury travel show for the rich and famous. Crane’s Beach House is very private and secluded, a gem hidden from public view. No sign of cars or the outside hustle and bustle of everyday life. Only 27 guest rooms and well trained staff that will make you feel as if you are their only guest.
The property is named after its owners, Michael & Karen Crane. I asked them to tell me about their property, “We wanted to create a tropical oasis nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway in historic downtown Delray Beach for our guests to enjoy. It was important to us to feature two warm saline pools with cascading waterfalls and cool misters, a tiered garden deck for daily breakfast and meeting area for guests, hand-tiled fountains, and two original tiki hut bars and a large gathering hut handmade by the Seminole Indians and an outdoor living room for private functions.
