About Caroline Hompes
Hi. I'm Caroline Hompes, the spouse of one of the three owners of the Haiku House. I am responsible for the decoration of the house and the necessities for all our guests to make them feel as comfortable as possible. My profession in the Netherlands is interior decorator and I'm the mother of three boys in the age of 16, 19 and 21. They also love to go to Saba, this precious pearl in the Caribbean.
Caroline Hompes purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Caroline Hompes chose The Bottom
From the first time my husband and I set foot on Saba we fell in love with the island. The friendly people and the beautiful villages. Everytime we enter the house we feel surrounded by the possitive energy of nature. That's why we want to share this unique experience with our quests.
What makes this Villa unique
The unique benefits of the Haiku house are total privacy, no mosquito's, possitive energy, no criminality, pleasant temperature and the fully equipped house gives you the luxury feeling of a 5-star hotel. Not in the last place due to the good care of our two housemanagers who will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as can be.

Engulfed in serenity
We were lucky enough to spend 11 amazing nights at Haiku House and are still basking from the experience..
I can't say enough, but here goes...
From the first step onto the island, we were met at the ferry dock by Peddy our cab driver for our entire stay who was like family by the time he dropped us at the airport. When we arrived at the house we were immediately engulfed in serenity.
Jason and Cece met us there and gave us the tour and were told to let them know of anything we needed, which they did, over and over again.
We had everything we needed during our stay. We enjoyed diving with Sea Saba, had amazing dinners at Chez Bubbas as well as several other places and prepared some perfect dinners for ourselves in the fully stocked kitchen . We enjoyed the amazing sunsets, cocktails and unlimited lounging at the pool and hot tub as well as secluded perfection.
I cannot recommend Haiku House enough, and we are hoping to return soon.
Thanks again Caroline! Hopefully we'll be in contact again for our next visit.
Saba an island or private club?
Ok, I’ve been quiet too long about my private club, Saba that I share with 1300 of my new closest friends…
Anyone that lives in a small town, a suburb, a private gated community or in a condo etc. cannot have the amenities that this bespoke location has. It has a utopian element that we all search for. Here it is right in front of your eyes in Saba. The short list is that there is no unemployment, health care for all, a place to live affordably, a place where everyone knows you and is pleasant even if they disagree with you, which leads to little or no crime. They even SWEEP the streets and I mean with a broom and shovel. And best of all it’s a Tropical Island with the suns warmth, tropical breezes, fabulous dining, world class diving and yes in this day of Zika -- no mosquitoes!
So how would you go about creating this and then how would you pay for this?
The easy answer is fly on down and book a room or better yet a house.
We first started our trips to Saba over 25 years ago staying at the Queen’s Gardens Hotel (very nice) and the more recently at the Haiku House (over the top… literally).
When we stayed at the Haiku House we meet the unbelievable team of Michael and Albert whom manage the functions of the house, along with having just about every property on the island that is for sale or rent available at their real estate company SABA ISLAND PROPERTIES.
There (again literally) is nothing they can’t do. Construction, Design (Albert is the Guru of Design and making the impossible come to life), Logistics, and making you feel Relaxed and Important (Michael is master of this one). They listen intently and remember your thoughts like an elephant. They epitomize the work ethic that we used to see. They represent all that Saba has to offer. We recently had to cancel all of our travel plans for this past winter and stay in the frozen north. The first thing we did once we could travel is go to Saba and have dinner with Albert and Michael and catch up.
I cannot say enough great things about this duo, other than to say that if you are fortunate enough to visit your private club Saba, make sure you look up these two as they could easily trump your best concierge.
From the villa you can make some magnificent hike's throught the rain forest and discover the great nature of Saba. Or go scuba diving in Saba's most amazing Marine Park. And what about enjoying a relax massage at the Spa of Queens Gardens? On this pitoresque island you discover new energy given by the friendly people.
