In early August 2015, we held our wedding at Haiku House on Saba. Haiku House property managers, Michael and Albert were very helpful in all aspects of our planning and preparations for the event. Upon booking the property, we received a very nice and detailed information packet about the property but also with all of the “need to know” info on the entire island. We had a million questions and urgent needs with everything from finding a minister to finding a way to dry clean the wedding dress, and Michael and Albert supported us offering suggestions and pointing us in the right direction. Upon our arrival at Haiku House, Michael and Albert welcomed us warmly and took time introducing us to Haiku House and its many amenities, making sure that we were totally comfortable with everything from lighting and sound systems to internet and taxi services, and letting us know that they were available anytime we needed …anything. It’s hard to explain how nice it was knowing that we could pick up the phone and have a “lifeline” anytime it might be needed. After booking, they had asked if we wanted some food upon arrival since we were arriving on a Sunday, …but we never got back to them. When we arrived they had bought, bread and cheese and wine, eggs, bacon, orange juice, tons of snacks, and more. We were famished when we arrived and had a very nice welcome breakfast. As we had arrived early, the cleaning crew was still there. First, she offered to make breakfast for us, and we declined, but then she insisted on cleaning up our dishes and mess!
Haiku house is a beautiful and elegant property inside and out and is pre-loaded with everything you need for a great quiet stay. It was a perfect venue for our wedding and was well worth the price. We had about 20 friends and family attending and everyone agreed that it was a beautiful and serene property. Prior to departure, we were looking for an Island keepsake gift to give our wedding guests. We had previously searched everything on line and found nothing and while on the island we never found anything quite right, but at the last minute, we asked Michael. He made a call and then called us back. We ended up at the dive shop and got some beautiful and reasonably priced Saba beach towels for all of our guests.
We want to thank Michael and Albert for their warm and professional help with our wonderful vacation wedding. The memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
