A 10-star gem of a villa
A 10-star gem of a villa
The old saying, "Pictures don't do it justice, " applies to Hummingbird Villa. The entire 2-acre property is manicured to perfection, walled and gated for privacy, has dizzying, magnificent views of the ocean and 6 islands, and is elegant without being ostentatious. The rates are about 25% of what I'd expect to pay for a villa of its size, in its location and with its appointments. When my bride and I arrived, we were greeted by the lovely Lika, who gave us the tour, presented us with a beautiful basket of food and beverages that got us through our first night, and let us know she would be on premises if we needed anything. We wanted complete privacy on our honeymoom, so we weren't sure how an on-site manager/concierge would work out, but Lika lives at the far side of the property and we never saw or heard from her until we called her, and then she was Johnny-on-the-spot. Lika offered unobtrusive, excellent service that one would expect at a 5-diamond hotel, not a stand alone villa. Her knowledge of the island and recommendations were spot on. The villa itself offers every possible amenity and every comfort of home including excellent mattresses, a kitchen with all gadgets and appliances, giant HDTV, stereo in every room, and a pristine pool and gorgeous yard with lots of places to frolic about. We loved the fact that we could just walk outside on the property and pick papayas, mangos, bananas, guavas, limes and soursop. We created our own juice diet, went out for one meal a day, and we went home pounds lighter and feeling amazing. The best and most touching feature of our stay was a blanket of seasonal flowers on our bed as a wedding gift from Dan, the owner. We didn't venture out a lot, but when we did, we found the Saban people to be among the kindest and most friendly anywhere. We felt safe and at home everywhere on the island, day or night. We cannot recommend this villa or Saba highly enough and we will fondly remember our honeymoon at Hummingbird Villa for the rest of our lives.

One of the best places we have ever stayed
One of the best places we have ever stayed
My partner, myself and another couple stayed at the Hummingbird for a week Feb 22, 2013. I have been in the travel industry for almost 30yrs now and can honestly say the Hummingbird Villa has been one of the most amazing and wonderful accommodations I have ever stayed in. For me, what truly makes a place, a trip, an experience unique and priceless is undefinable. I could say it was the fantastic views, the comfortable rooms, cooling pool, fully equipped kitchen, the books and movies available to it's guests. It could be the great location to everything such as hiking trails, restaurants, grocery stores etc. It could have been the excellent attention to detail and prompt service we received from the very moment we emailed the owner to inquire about the property to the house manager and gardener that made sure we had everything and were taken care of immediately. But I think that these are only parts of the sum of a whole experience that will leave you wanting more...and constantly thinking about when you can go back. You know when you are somewhere and you get that feeling of just letting go and exhaling? Come to the Hummingbird Villa and experience Saba....there is truly no place like it anywhere else. Each of us came home with memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Dan, for creating and imbuing the Hummingbird with love and wonderful energy, may we repay you in kind one day. Andre

Owner response: Thank you for the excellent review, Andre'. I'm completely blown away. We do what we do with that secret ingredient, L-O-V-E , and I'm so glad you picked up on that. I hope you'll return to Hummingbird one day.
Oh, the view!
Oh, the view!
If you're looking for luxury in a remote and exotic setting, Hummingbird Villa's the place for you. Dan has thought of everything. We travel a lot, and rarely have our expectations been exceeded like they were at Hummingbird. Saba is a place of unsurpassed natural beauty, simple yet elegant. The fragrant breezes, the sounds of the birds, tree frogs and goats, and the endless sky and ocean make for a restorative place to rebalance. Walking is not for the faint of heart! There are steep hills and the roads are narrow. But there is little traffic, and people are courteous. Although there isn't much night life, there are several excellent restaurants. And, of course, the caretaker, Paul, is an extraordinary chef and chocolatier.....if you want to be pampered at home. Treat yourself to the most wonderful house and view on the island!

My husband and I just got back from our Honeymoon stay at Hummingbird Villa!! We cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! It was by far the most relaxing vacation we've ever taken! The house is absolutely beautiful and the views from the decks are unbelievable!! Dan, the owner, answered all of our many questions and suggested some wonderful "must do's" during our visit! We are already planning a return trip to visit the beautiful Hummingbird Villa and wonderful Saba!!

Dear Dan, Christmas in the Hummingbird Villa, the place where dreams are made. The Ruff family needed to relieve stress from the 30 degree snowy weather of New York City. We wanted to share the Christmas season and celebrate our daughter Kyrah's 16th birthday somewhere "nice." We got "heavenly." The Caribbean island of Saba was the location and the Hummingbird Villa was our answer to the place where dreams are made. The warm sun and gracious hospitality will not be forgotten. You all helped make our daughter Kyrah's birthday a memorable one. My favorite room is the den. At Hummingbird, I was able to write and let my creative juices flow with the natural ease of the warm winds, and that feeling was sheer heavenly pleasure. The 7 AM sun was all I needed to start my writing juices and in the evening, the sweet harmony of the little frogs was a delight. Continue giving and sharing your fabulous villa. You will always be blessed by doing so. Thank you, Dan, for the phone service. That extra treat was truly appreciated. Continued health, wealth, and lots of love. Remember, successful people move differently! Johnetta, Kyrha and Kerry Ruff New York City

As I'm sitting outside absorbing the morning sun, with a view of the Caribbean strewn in front of me, thinking of how to describe my time here...our time here...at Hummingbird Villa, I realize the pillow in the great room says it all...this place truly is a slice of heaven! This is our first time to Saba, but definitely not our last. I'm plotting stragegies to get back here as soon as possible. It's a place you never want to forget. You'll see for yourself.

The Hummingbird House is definitely the place to stay if you're planning a trip to Saba. The diving on Saba is not to be missed and was the main reason we traveled there, but staying at the Hummingbird House was another highlight of our trip. The house is very clean, well furnished, and has incredible views of several other Caribbean islands. Sunrise every morning was worth getting up early for! We spent far more time at the house than we'd expected, just because it was so comfortable! I definitely recommend staying at Hummingbird House.

We are two couples from Saba's sister island of Statia who wanted a close-to-home getaway to relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Hummingbird Villa was just the ticket to do that. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our time reading, relaxing, seeing the island and just enjoying each other's company in such a fabulous home. Hummingbird Villa had everything we needed and then some. We will be back!

A perfect day to start off our vacation: hiking, diving, and the Swinging Doors BBQ! Your villa tops any place we've stayed on Saba, and we've stayed at many. We truly loved every minute here. Thanks for sharing it with us. God bless you in 2009!

My niece was married on Saba. That is why we came to Saba. We LOVED staying in Hummingbird Villa. We saw many other accommodations, but we all thought our house was THE BEST. We loved the deck and spent mornings and evenings there....watched the sun and moon rise. I would love to spend a week here just relaxing. Thank you Hummers. Carol R.

About the owner: Born in Cape May county, New Jersey, the ocean has been in my blood all my life. My first time away from the ocean was when I went to college and I used to listen to the ocean in a conch shell and dream of it. Later, I moved to San Diego because I wanted to be able to enjoy the ocean year 'round.
Why the Owner Chose Windwardside:
I visited Saba in 2002, fell in love with the island, the diving, hiking, and most of all, the world's friendliest and most loving people, so I kept returning. I eventually bought my little piece of paradise and feathered my nest with loving care with efficiency (I operate my business from the villa when I am on island), privacy, entertaining and relaxation in mind. Hummingbird Villa truly has every amenity and comfort and I share it with love.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I had put an offer in on a cottage, but my friends on Saba kept insisting that I go to see 'Mandy's house' (which I renamed Hummingbird Villa). I kept saying, 'No, I can't afford it,' but they insisted. Mandy invited me to visit during sunrise, so I walked over to the house at 4:30 AM and witnessed the most spectacular sunrise of my life. I had my yoga mat in hand, as I was going to stop at the gym on my way back to Jo Bean's, where I was staying. Mandy invited me to do yoga in the great room. The 18' wide, raised, pine planked floors licked my feet with warmth and were the best yoga experience I had had to date. The soothing sounds and smell of the ocean, along with the chirping of the birds, felt like home and I knew this was meant to be.
