This beautifully maintained, spacious and comfortable villa is imbued with so many of the endless charms that draw people to the pristine island of Saba. From the spectacular vistas and indoor/outdoor living to the pristine interiors, this is a delightful and quite self-contained place to relax and slip into the island’s peaceful pace of time; a place to layer Caribbean living with your personal style.
Built upon an iconic native stone foundation, the unique two-story floor plan takes advantage of many appealing elements for which Saba is renowned including one of the most spectacular views on island. Wrap- around terraces on both levels create the perfect stage for viewing sunrise, and the unobstructed star filled night. Magnificent expansive seascapes across the endless Atlantic are simply breathtaking. From North to South, you can see the neighboring islands of St Martin/St Maarten, St Barths, St Eustasius, St Kitts and Nevis. And on a clear day, all the way to Montserrat. Cruise ships bound for St Martin/St Maarten and St. Barths, private yachts and sailing ships move languidly across your view. From the upper or lower level, the view is a constantly changing painting.
From airy upper and lower level interiors, the view flows to the horizon creating a harmonious feng shui attitude throughout the house. New oversized double glazed windows, with UV block tinting, flood the villa with sun, washing the interiors in a soft gentle light. The lower level of the villa is the hub of the house with a modern, fully equipped kitchen and spacious dining and living area. Two light filled bedrooms, with shared bathroom, are privately set off the living area. Behind the house, a charming tropical garden and tiled terrace flow from the interior to the outside for al fresco moments.
The interior spiral staircase leads from the lower living area up to a stunning space overlooking the sea. This unexpected, light filled room is a relaxing space for reading a book, watching TV or hosting a fabulous party. Overhead, the high beamed cedar ceiling adds a touch of pure Caribbean charm. A large master suite, with walk-in closet and full bath, is set privately off the living room.
Stepping outside, the great room opens to the wrap around terrace and a large spa pool. Combined with the stunning views, the terrace becomes an oasis of peace and tranquility; a delightful space for a cool tropical beverage. The upper level terrace also connects to a large multi-purpose room set above the enclosed garage. An open space currently houses a gym, billiard table and the laundry facilities, yet can be converted to a studio apartment for guest quarters.
The house is very well-constructed with many new elements, including the windows, that provide comfort and safety such as a classic red zinc roof, low maintenance fencing wrapping the property and the kitchen appliances. The enclosed garage is a special touch as it protects the car, which is included in the sale.

Twice awarded the Travel & Leisure award for Best Caribbean Island, Saba has a devoted following of discerning individuals who love the island’s combination of natural and man-made beauty. This unique island is one of the rare places on Earth where you can reconnect with nature while still maintaining a connection to civilization.
