My partner and I, along with three friends headed to Saba without really knowing what to expect. We spent the week prior to our arrival island hopping around the caribbean, saving Saba for our final destination. We should have headed straight to hummingbird villa for our entire two week trip!
We arrived late on a Thursday evening as the earlier ferry’s had been cancelled. When we got to the house at 7:00 PM, we were in awe, even in the dark. The villa is beautiful. Leika was waiting for us at the door. Since we were coming in so late, she thought to get us some beer, wine, fruit, eggs, coffee, cheese.... all the things we would have wanted for our first night and breakfast the next morning. She also helped us get into a place for dinner that night. She does a amazing job making sure the guests have everything they need and want.
The next morning we got to see the house and grounds in the daylight. As said below, the pictures do not do it justice. It is stunning. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed on a vacation.
Having a pool is rare on Saba, and this house has a great one. The house is full of doors and windows to take advantage of that spectacular view. Open them up and let the air flow through, you will be instantly relaxed. The massive book collection was a wonderful surprise. Our guests read several.
The walk into Windwardside is easy enough. Just long enough to get you ready for a wonderful meal or cold beverage. The town is quaint and beautiful. Be sure to hike up Mt. Scenery!
My partner was in touch with Dan frequently during our stay with simple questions or seeking advice. Not only did Dan respond quickly, but with very entertaining responses and suggestions.
The bottom line: If you want to be surrounded beauty inside and out, experience a vacation like nothing you’ve ever had before and be more relaxed than you ever thought possible... visit Saba and stay at the nicest house on the island. Hummingbird Villa.
