Just when you thought you knew everything about the Caribbean, along comes Saba to defy your expectations and open up an exciting new world of possibilities. Just five square smiles and with a population of under 2,000, Saba is the smallest special municipality of the Netherlands, tucked neatly just a few miles from its sister Dutch Caribbean islands of Sint Maarten and Sint Eustatius. Rising majestically from the sea and untarnished by the teeming tourist hordes, Saba has been named the Caribbean’s best kept secret by Forbes, while National Geographic has called it the third best island in the world.

Now through a unique opportunity, you can take possession of 25 acres of prime property on Saba, including a luxury designer villa, a 12-suite hotel, and more than 30 undeveloped plots with fantastic unencumbered views, ranging in size from 500 square meters to 5,000 square meters. The fabulous Haiku House, based on a 16th century Japanese villa, is a luxurious and ultra-secluded mountain hideaway with three bedrooms, private pool and jacuzzi. The upscale Queen’s Gardens Resort & Spa is currently being operated as a top-rated 12-suite boutique property, but could potentially be repurposed as a guest house to the villa.

For the property’s development land, the current owner has researched possibilities to build and market high-end pre-fab houses, quality built in The Netherlands and assembled locally. A local real estate agent is also on board to assist in this project. An eco-resort project called Leaf is also in development, which fully supports the local community’s desire to remain the most sustainable Caribbean island. Utilizing sustainable and circular local building materials, this state-of-the-art project includes roof gardens and natural bio-pools to self-provide electricity, water treatment and heating and cooling for the development, while the landscaping and gardens will ecologically provide produce.

Access to Saba is easy via daily flights to Sint Maarten, where plentiful global connections are available through Princess Juliana International Airport.
