Unlike any other Caribbean island (seriously), Saba can truly boast that they have the cleanest, most peaceful atmosphere and of course the best hightop villa with outstanding panoramic ocean views.
Saba is truly unique! Where else would I behold grave stones in a back or side yard. Saba is so small and all land has been owned for generations, so I enjoyed reading the history of Spyglass Villa and marveled at how the current owner was able to so thoughtfully recreate a sea cottage with mixed European styles on the ruins of the original owner's homestead.
Wonderful experience for visitors who crave a relaxing cultural vacation.
Be sure to bring all toiletries and expect to pay handsomely for groceries since getting food to Saba is expensive. Buy extra cartons of eggs. They sell out in a hurry and don't come in but once a week!
Enjoy spotting the bunnies in the wild. A population explosion once the domestics got loose and never came home!

We have visited gorgeous islands all over the world, but have never stayed in such an amazing villa as Spyglass. It is difficult to put into words what is visible from the balcony. Ocean, volcano and rain forest - all in one sweep of the eyes. As if that's not enough, the elevation and strategic construction, provide a constant flow of cool, clean air. With unobstructed views of the sunrise and sunset, we hardly left home except to dive. The interior is so open it never lets you forget what is outside waiting for you. Spyglass is worth every penny, and paid us in return with a vacation to remember.

Really nice home sitting right on the edge of a mountain overlooking the Ocean. Great location in walking distance to Windward Side which is a great little town with some great restaurants, dive shop, bakery, and really anything you need. The view from Spyglass is breathtaking. The house has everything you could need. Very nice, clean, with tons of amenities. It's a luxury accommodation.

“Absolutely amazing villa with the best 360 views!!”

The Spyglass Villa is probably one of the best villas on Saba. When we got out of the airport and into a taxi, our taxi driver when told where we were staying, said: "Oh, you are staying in the best villa on Saba!" The views from the villa are stunning and breathtaking! We wanted to sit on that porch morning, day and night! The villa offers a great kitchen, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are great as well. Everywhere is very clean. Jovie (the house attendant) was there every day to clean it and put it all back in order (Thank you, Jovie!). The villa is a very short walk from the town (Windwardside) and from restaurants and grocery stores). It is also very close to the volcano hike (Mt. Scenery). I absolutely recommend Spyglass Villa!!
