A Saba Love Story – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties

Sunset on Booby Hill - Saba - Cece Schweitzer

For many people Saba is an unexpected surprise — often turning into a real love story — where they can’t stay away. Returning over and over again and some, make the romance permanent; actually moving here to live and work and raise a family because it’s home to them.

Here’s one of those choice Saba love stories by Hans & Yvonne Geijtenbeek (going on for nearly 30 years) that people like us relish and then… send it out to people in our tribes who are on the same journey we are on — thirsty to have a place like Saba in their lives.

“It was 1991. Two good friends of ours went sailing from Europe to Sint Maarten and while there they visited Saba because they were curious. And then… they were so wildly enthusiastic with what they discovered, they immediately called me:
‘Fly over — We must build a house here. It is fabulous!’

That was the start of Saba Villas, NV. The beginning of our love story with Saba. We moved forward and bought additional parcels of land on Troy Hill and built the incomparable Haiku House, which the three of us still own. What a partnership it is.

When my wife Yvonne also visited Saba she was overwhelmed by the beauty of the nature and the kindness of the people of Saba.
Several times a year we went to Saba and stayed in the Haiku House. Real Magic. Real Paradise.

In 2007 we saw Villa Fairview for sale on Booby Hill, Windwardside. Our dream… a wonderful location… amazing views… WOW!

We bought the house and quickly started renovating and decorating, including building a pool with our friend Cedric Hassell. What a great time.

What we love most is the quietness… the peace and stress free atmosphere on this pearl of the Caribbean. Incredible hiking…
Astonishing nature… Caring, welcoming community. We are so fortunate, over all these years, to have met a lot of Saban people who…
have become friends forever. Whenever we arrive on Saba we are back home.” – Hans & Yvonne Geijtenbeek

(Hans & Yvonne live in Baarn, Holland (a village near Amsterdam). Hans was a real estate agent in Amsterdam and later on a professional wellness/medical medium coach. Yvonne was a primary school teacher as well as operating a natural medicine practice. They have two daughters and three grandsons.)

It’s a privilege for us to watch a person belong to Saba. Seeing them relax into the peaceful mindset… connecting with nature and people and their true selves. It’s the best part of our work witnessing this transformation. The positive life change that happens as they fall in love with this exclusive caribbean island and live the dream of Saba.

Michael Feeley, Life Coach:

Why Saba?

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.
