Travel : Spyglass Villa, Saba

Saba is one of my favourite places ever! I have been fortunate enough to visit numerous times on family vacations which my grandparents take the kids and grandkids on. Every time I visit I feel like I fall in love all over again. The authenticity of the island is infectious and I often daydream about moving there to spend my days reading and writing. Saba is a Caribbean island and smallest municipality of the Netherlands. They boast the smallest commercial runway in the world and a population of under 2,000 people. While I do not scuba dive my grandparents rave about the beauty and visit every year just to scuba dive. They also have lovely hiking trails, the tallest and most difficult is Mount Scenery which goes up to 2,910 ft! If you make it to the top you are literally in the clouds as you take in the views.

For the past ten or more years we have been visiting Saba and staying at Juliana's Hotel. We love the people there (Whim, Johanna, Leanna and of course Rosco!), as well as the charming cottages and convenient location. On our last visit we heard that there was a new home being built up the hill by a Bajan. We walked up the hill and came to the most magnificent spot. The property was perhaps only half way complete and I couldn't have ever imagined it would be so perfect upon completion. 

Spyglass Villa is a three bedroom, three bathroom villa located on the point of Booby Hill opposite Sheer Water Resort. The Villa is impeccably finished with modern amenities and fixtures but still maintains a feeling of simplicity. I love the travertine tile throughout the property as well as the natural wood and open shelving details. Of course it goes without saying that the outdoor living spaces are the most sought after. There is a balcony, a deck and a gazebo where you can enjoy  Panoramic views of the sun, sea, sky and mountains.
