Despite the ever-spreading hand of tourism that has taken over many parts of the Caribbean, tiny Saba remains a quiet and secluded natural paradise.
Many vacationers visit this tranquil, mountainous island to get away from busy crowds and the general hustle and bustle of everyday life. Compared to many other Caribbean islands, Saba has very few large luxury accommodations, but vacationers seeking charming lodgings will not be disappointed. Visitors to Saba will find that there are several beautiful guesthouses and villas nestled throughout the island that are perfect for a relaxing tropical getaway.
There are two main rental properties on Saba: Anole House and the Cottage Club. Anole House is located on the slopes of Booby Hill, about a ten minute walk from Windwardside. It has two bedrooms, two baths, a living room and a kitchen/dining room. The Anole House offers some of the nicest views on Saba, looking out over the Caribbean Sea to the islands of St Kitts, Nevis, St Eustatius (Statia) and Montserrat. The name is taken from the small anole lizard, which is endemic to the island (Anolis Sabanus). It was constructed in 1994 by a local resident, Danny Hassell. Amenities include a swimming pool with a view to the ocean, several terraces and a well established garden.
The Cottage Club is a cluster of cottages that are ideal for vacationers traveling in larger groups. The cottages provide guests with fully equipped kitchens as well as private bathrooms, which give travelers the conveniences and autonomy of being at home. Room rates for the Cottage Club also vary according to the tourist season, and vacationers should expect to pay about $105(USD) for daily rates and $625(USD) weekly during the summer time. During the winter months, rates are a little higher and guests will pay about $118(USD) daily and $750(USD) per week.
While vacationing on Saba, many travelers take advantage of the privacy and autonomy of rental properties. Depending on your vacationing needs, a house or cottage could be just the right place for you and your travel companions.
