Spyglass Villa is the perfect retreat after a day of diving the must-see pinnacles in the Marine Park that encircle the island. Sea Saba in Windwardside would love to arrange your dives in Saba. For those who are enthusiastic about walking/ hiking, Spylgass is situated near to various trailheads near Windwardside, including the hike up to beautiful Mt. Scenery. Visit the Saba Conservation Foundation Trail Shop in Windwardside for more information.

Dining out could not be more easy in Windwardside which has a variety of restaurants at price points to suit every taste for every time of the day.

For those who want to spice things up in the kitchen themselves, Windwardside has two supermarkets to stock up your pantry.

But most of all, Spyglass is to be enjoyed by those who are looking for a little peace and quiet. Read a book. Listen to the waves in the distance and watch the Frigate Birds (Boobys) sail the air currents. They are just as free as you will be once you arrive at Spyglass...


Manager info

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 Windward Side, Caribbean Netherlands:
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.
