Year Purchased: 2009
About: Father and Son, Chris and Barney Gibbs are born and bred-Barbadians. Saba and Barbados have shared seafaring traditions since the 17th century, and the flat, limestone island to the South is a vastly different landscape to Saba's volcanic peaks. But both islands are home to Chris and Barney.
Why Windwardside: Purchased as a virtual ruin in 2009, the Barbadian owners of Spyglass Villa have meticulously renovated the property as a refuge for all who choose to stay here. Through careful study of the unique Saban vernacular in its over 100 year old cottages, we have not departed from the well-crafted and intricate details of Saban architecture, while also maintaining a contemporary, but comfortable feel in the property. Saba is a quiet and charming island surrounded by spectacular sea and mountain views and each space in the home was designed to ensure that visitors enjoy peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
‘Spyglass’ is the current name given to the property which was formerly constructed and occupied by well-known Saban Calvin Holm.
After a few visits to the island the current owners decided to undertake a renovation of the property to make the house befitting of the beautiful, almost 360 degree views of the sea and mountain.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Spyglass offers guests the comfort of tradition with modern conveniences. Spyglass is a sanctuary where you can choose to switch off and just contemplate life as the clouds circle around your little mountainous retreat.
Spyglass features a large modern kitchen and several indoor and outdoor dining options. Bedrooms are generous with full en-suite bathroom/shower.
Guests of Spyglass Villa will have access to free WiFi, Cable TV and the full amenities listed. Guests will also have exclusive access to the nearby Shearwater Resort's amenities, including a pool, tennis courts and business centre.
