Windwardside house description

Winner of the award for Finest Vacation Rental on Saba for the last 6 years, Hummingbird Villa is the only secluded, gated, seaside villa available for rent on Saba's Windwardside and is beautifully situated on two walled acres with private pool, magnificent sunrises and unobstructed, panoramic views of the ocean and 6 islands. Hummingbird Villa is also the only vacation home on Saba with an on-site concierge.

Hummingbird Villa is a quick five-minute walk to the heart of Windwardside village, yet secluded and a world away. We offer the discriminating traveler two suites with full baths, ocean views, and walk-outs to the gorgeous, exclusive pool, decks and gardens from the principal rooms. There is a separate poolside guest house with huge bath and sweeping ocean and mountain views. There are also two apartments with full kitchens and baths. Our total capacity is 12. No matter whether you are two persons renting only the main villa or a group of 12 renting the villa, guest house and apartments, you will be the only people who are on the property when you rent it, so you will have absolute privacy and exclusivity.

Hummingbird Villa is a roomy, elegant Plantation style, state-of-the-art home on two fenced, gated acres that offers every possible amenity, appointment and comfort. The Great Room has 20-foot ceilings, six sets of French doors and views of six islands and the ocean. We have a gourmet kitchen; two indoor and two outdoor dining areas; gate house with intercom that leads to a walled patio with lush tropical gardens; wireless, high speed internet; air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout; huge deck and pool deck for sunning; observation deck with the best views on Saba; Jacuzzi tub in master suite with pool, mountain and ocean views; large, shaded back yard with ocean views. Please VIEW THE VIDEO AT OUR WEB SITE and take the complete room-by-room and area-by-area pictorial tour.

We have never had a guest who was less than thrilled.

Hummingbird Villa has a wooden interior and homeowners/fire insurance is prohibitively expensive on the island (so no one has it), therefore we strictly prohibit smoking indoors.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: Having grown up on the ocean, I'm a die hard diver, fisherman, swimmer and surfer.

          Why the Owner Chose Windwardside:
          I visited Saba on a diving trip and immediately fell in love with the incredible reef, pristine hiking trails, unspoiled natural beauty of the topside, but most importantly the people, who think and live outside the box and are among the most loving and kind in the world. During my first visit, I was invited to people's houses for dinner, everyone waved as I passed, and people remembered my name. When I went home, I had Emails from the locals asking when I was returning. I felt like I had left part of my heart on Saba, so I returned 5 times and eventually bought a property and created Hummingbird Villa. My family and friends love it here, and we go out of our way to make each guest's stay a memorable experience.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Hummingbird Villa truly has a soul. It beckoned to me from the moment I set foot in the main house. The unique, warm, 18' wide cedar plank floors seem to come up to meet your bare feet. The spectacular sunrises over the ocean, with a view of 6 islands, is one of the most beautiful in the world and one never tires of it. The property is maintained with love. The villa is right across the street from the mountain road up to Mt. Scenery, so you can walk across the street and hike up to the highest peak in the Netherlands, or walk 250 feet in the other direction and hike down to Spring Bay, or walk 5 minutes and be in the center of the Windwardside village. At the same time, the villa sits on 2.5 secluded acres, so you can swim in the altogether without a care in the world. The property is substantial and designed to accommodate a large group while giving everyone privacy, space and unimpeded access to all common areas. Between the main villa, the guest house and two turnkey apartments, this property will comfortably sleep a group of 12 with plenty of breathing room.
