Saba, a hidden gem

We recently returned from a seven-day stay at the Haiku House, and it was amazing! As other reviewers have noted, the pictures on the website, stunning as they are, fail to capture the villa’s true beauty. The views from the Haiku House are breathtaking, from the morning mist that crawls over the mountain peaks behind the house, to the countless shades of green that cover the surrounding hillsides, to The Bottom and the waters beyond it. It’s all postcard material.

From the moment we landed on the island, everything was taken care of. A taxi was waiting for us, and the driver (a very nice man named Peddy) gave us the lay of the land as we crossed the island from the airport to the villa. He stopped at various times to point things out or let us take pictures. When we arrived at the villa, the rental car was waiting for us, and the villa was stocked with basics that we had requested. CeCe recommended fabulous restaurants, including Rendezvous at Eco Lodge, which is 100% WORTH the short hike into the rainforest. Gorgeous setting and the best food on the island. (Also phenomenal was Tropics Café at Juliana’s Hotel.) CeCe was always available whenever we had questions, and made the stay pleasant and enjoyable.

As for the island itself, the hiking, diving, and snorkeling were everything you would expect and more. SeaSaba runs a fantastic operation. And I would be remiss if I didn’t say a word about the Sabans. Every person we encountered, without exception, was kind, friendly, and welcoming. I have never been to a place as hospitable as the island of Saba.

Saba is a hidden gem in the Caribbean, and the Haiku House is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
