Saba Is Ready For Your Return – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties
Saba is secure and…
We’re ready to come off hold and return to the full freedom we long for — to travel and connect with people, especially celebrating life on Saba.
Sheltered in at home (and let’s not skip over the emotional meaning of that word – home) we’re learning from the changes we live with:
- Slowing down – not rushing – not hurried
- Cooperation in isolation
- People doing more not less
- Renewed appreciation for life, our families and friends
- Greater value for many everyday things we count on (even take for granted)
- Gratitude for what’s really important to each of us
- Holding tight to peace, ease and hope during this fearful and uncertain time of coronavirus
We’re finding our way, feeling truly fortunate to live here in the heart of stunning nature. One of the great gifts of Saba and… with our cherished safety and… our friendly community and… extraordinary hospitality.
There are many natural leaders and heroes
We have abundant gratitude for the leadership, open hearted, generous help of many people here on Saba. Doing more than imagined. Showing up. Informing. Patient. Many right out front. Risking so much.
♦ We thank Governor Johnson for his steady, strong encouragement. Keeping us connected and updated with phone messages and videos. Something we count on – the Outbreak Management Team and government officials working alongside Holland to aid Saba’s people and workforce – technicians at Satel and Saba Electric keeping us hooked up and Zooming…
♦ Our courageous nurses and doctors – pharmacist and health benefits teams – people at the harbor and airport monitoring our gateways – patrolling police and fire workers – gas station and mechanics – our local organic garden – recycling – taxi drivers – teachers…
♦ Our grocery stores where people stock the shelves, select, pack and deliver us food – bakery and breads – propane gas – water for our cisterns – mail – supplies and packages shipped into Saba – hardware products…
♦ Farmers and service people who have permission to help care for animals, home needs, maintaining pools and yards and building projects – restaurants and hotels and businesses supporting one another…
♦ Volunteers giving and giving. The list is extensive and includes many unknown people behind the scenes holding things up and together with hard work and love that we don’t always hear about. It’s incredible to see and feel the joyful commitment and fellowship taking place. Humanity. Ordinary common decency. Helping Saba get through this.
Real estate is naturally still
We get some calls and emails about rental options and emails from people around the globe checking in… the fans and tribes of Saba:
“We just wanted to take a moment to wish you continued health and safety over the coming weeks and months ahead.
Saba is never far from our minds and we check in frequently to see how the island is weathering this particular storm.
You are fortunate to live in not only a very beautiful part of the world but also one where the sense of community and responsibility is strong.”
– James & Linda Mackay –
Helping people feel ‘At Home’ is what we do at Saba Island Properties. Teaching people about Saba and the quality lifestyle it offers, especially now as people look to the future and are truly rethinking how they want to live and where there are real ‘safe haven’ possibilities in the world. Saba and it’s exclusive benefits is still high on the list and we’re naturally eager to welcome people home!
Living with change works well
So — we’re zooming in on gratitude and there just aren’t enough words to express the genuine and consistent care going on here — protecting and enhancing our island and our people. We’ve got Sabatude!
The world is in transition and that includes the island of Saba, which is both the same and different. We’re all making sense about what truly works and matters. What the core values are we want and respect.
We share these wise words of Nick Cave from the rock band The Bad Seeds about living with change and the choices we are making:
“In time we will be given the opportunity to either contract around the old version of ourselves
and our world… insular, self-interested and tribalistic…
or understand the contentedness and commonality of all humans, everywhere.
In isolation, we will be presented with our essence… of what we are personally and what we are as a society.
We will be asked to decide what we want to preserve about our world and ourselves,
and what we want to discard.”

This is How We Connect with Other People
Michael Feeley, Life Coach:
After living and working in New York City for 40+ years I leaped right out of the rat race of corporate America; leaving behind the relentless stress and competition that was wasting me; to rediscover what really matters to me in life.
We went looking for a new home all over the world - the Azores, the Maldives, France, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Malta, the Caribbean and by pure luck, found Saba.
Saba gives me peace, joy, freedom and a community where I feel I belong. People are respected here; living free and open, in the heart of deep nature and incredible beauty. It's a remarkable change.
The work we do enables us to care about other people. Helping them find a new home with practical empathy for their needs and dreams. It's an emotional investment. To listen. To understand. It's work that matters to us. Work we're proud of.
Maybe you have similar yearnings for change. Wanting a better way to live.
A place where you feel at home, with yourself and with the world.
You might just be looking for a new spot to vacation. Unique. Unknown. Crowd-less. Safe. Friendly.... Hello Saba.
Or... you're already hooked on Saba and keep coming back year after year because you love it! Booking your favorite hotel and room or renting a Saba cottage or villa.
Or... Saba's lifestyle makes you dream of a bigger change. A more personal connection to this exclusive, wonder of an island. Something lasting. Just yours and investing in a home is fixed in your mind and heart.
Feel free to email me and let's find out exactly what you want and see - Is the Caribbean island of Saba right for you? Let's make those thoughts and wishes a reality and then... they won't be thoughts and wishes anymore.
I look forward to saying to you one day --'Welcome home!
Be it for a week or... a lifetime.
