Paradise on Saba


by Saba Villas

Haiku House
on Saba Island

The Saba Haiku House is a private hilltop villa based on a 16th Century Japanese Villa. It is the ideal luxurious mountain hideaway with private pool located on the island of Saba.

The Haiku House features three air-conditioned bedrooms with each a separate bathroom. Privacy is the keyword for this retreat. Maximum privacy and that’s why maid service is on request.

Haiku House is stunning in every way

Our vacation at the Haiku House on Saba was perfect – and our experience began before our plane landed on the island.

About the Villa

Villa Haiku House was built in the nineties and has been in possession of three Dutch families since. Haiku House is situated 400 meters above sea level, so there is always a pleasant breeze. From the pool deck it has an amazing view over the Caribbean Sea. 

Only the finest architectural materials and tropical woods (hardwood & red cedar) were used for interior and exterior wall paneling. Redwood is an excellent insulator, with its low density, fine cellular structure. It is earthquake-proof and fire-resistant, having been deemed the only acceptable wood to use by the San Francisco Building Code when the city was rebuilt after its famous fire and earthquake in 1906.
