I do not know that I can do service to our accommodations with words but I will try. The owners of this apartment obviously love their home, the island and want to share this with the people who stay with them. The location is the Windwardside the best area to stay for dining and drinks. The grounds and pool are as spectacularly kept as is the apartment. Every day I would return to the apartment and notice some special touch that I had not seen before. We were greeted by Michael, Albert and Tula upon our arrival (which was 6pm on a Friday night) this is normal....but what blew my mind was that they had stocked the fridge with the most thoughtful assortment of goodies. This stay went above and beyond any rental experience I have ever had.
Out of the Blue was perfectly located and perfectly appointed for our needs. Our hosts, Albert & Michael, seem to have thought of everything. From the airport, we simply asked to be taken to Albert & Michael's--no need for an address! Upon our arrival after a long day of travel, we were surprised to find the refrigerator stocked with a nice assortment of food and drink--that was a really welcome surprise! The first night our internet signal was very weak, and the very next day they had someone out to fix it! Out of the Blue is located up the road from Winwardside. And when I say up, I do mean up! It's a pretty steep hill to climb, but we got great exercise doing it--and after all, we were there hiking trails for fun! The pool area is absolutely perfect--it is a great place to get your inner peace on. I spent afternoons while my husband was out diving soaking up the sun and the amazing view. We loved Saba. If you are looking to be entertained, it is not for you. If you are looking for authentic, natural beauty both above and below the water, lovely people and lovely views, you will not be disappointed! Out of the Blue is the perfect property for your stay on Saba!
Absolutely perfect retreat about a 10 minute walk up the hill from Windwardside. We were here for a full 2 weeks in January diving and hiking. This apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. Michael and Albert and littleTulla (the dog) were extremely helpful and friendly. The pool, yard and apartment were immaculate, beautifully designed and extremely well equipped. The view from the deck across the pool is stunning looking over the ocean at the other islands and ships going by. The dive shop (Saba Divers) picked us up and dropped us off, the grocery store would drive us up the hill if we purchased a larger grocery order.
I can not think of anything that could be better and would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing vacation. When life permits, can't wait to go back! Thank you Michael and Albert.
We are so grateful to have enjoyed 8 nights over New Year at this beautiful, tranquil rental property. Michael and Albert's attention to detail and design inside and outside their home made our stay a joy. The accommodation is well-appointed and equipped, and the infinity pool magnificent. Overall this stay exceeded our expectations, as did the island as a whole, which is a nature-lover's paradise. We swam with turtles, watched butterflies and hummingbirds, saw so many different tropical flowers, and drove all around the island in our rental car which was great to have. Just being around friendly locals, no commercialism, peace and quiet, eating simply but well, and watching the clouds float across the huge vistas was a refreshing change from our busy city lives. We so hope to be back - thanks again!
