A Superb Testimonial on Saba, Home and Happiness – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties

Champagne Cottage - Albert & Michael - Saba Island Properties

People entrust their homes to us

Caregivers and Caretakers. Stewards. Custodians. Hosts. That’s what we are.
Caring about and for other peoples properties — to rent to sell — as well as the privilege and leadership to manage their cottages and villas. 

  • Helping you to find a home where you’ll be happy
  • Putting together responsibility and compassion
  • Organization and attention to details with love
  • Being run by heartfelt concern for another persons home and land… treating it as if it were our own
  • Making meaningful connections… nurturing relationships

 

Our work takes emotional and physical labor

To do this job well you’ve got to have feelings for the properties you represent and maintain. Feelings for the land the home rests upon,
the blocks and wood it’s built out of, furnishings, views and, the most vital element — understanding people — listening to them —
having genuine care for the welfare of the people living in the house.

That’s what we mean by emotional labor — to be willing to step into the shoes of another person. To try and see who they truly are. How they view the world. Hearing what they’re saying, thinking and asking for. Even if it’s different from what we want or how we think.

Guests and home owners have pictures in their heads and hearts of how their lives on Saba will be. Personal and particular needs, desires and dreams and it’s our hope to try to fulfill every wish a person has so they do feel at home… belonging, comfortable, respected, happy to 
live the Caribbean lifestyle they have come here to experience.

This powerful quote describes our leadership and empathy

Two crucial things we strive for in all the work we do as we answer emails — telephone calls — talk in person about life on Saba
living and working here — renting a home — buying a house or land — running a business.

“Buddhist tradition describes three styles of compassionate leadership:
The Trailblazer – who leads from the front, takes risks, and sets an example;
The Ferryman – who accompanies those in his care and shapes the ups and downs of the crossing;
The Shepherd – who sees everyone one of his flock into safety before himself.
Three styles, three approaches, but what they have in common is an all-encompassing concern for the welfare of those they lead.”
– The Dalai Lama –

What a story

We’re honored and proud to share this superb testimonial about our purpose
to find you the right home to live in for your happiness on Saba.

“We are world travelers, spoiled, “saw-it-all” kind of persons. We decided to come to Saba for an emotional retreat. We took a job that was not important, but what we were looking for was – luxury accommodations – nature unusual experience – beauty – exotics – etc.
And we got it all. We were so happy on Saba and very happy to have spent some time in the
Champagne Cottage
.

We saw this cottage on the internet and we called Albert & Michael Saba Island Properties – to ask about the place. I was so surprised by the great professional attitude, excellent language, amazing manners, high professionalism of Albert & Michael. They explained to us everything, booked the place and made our stay so comfortable! They took care of every need for us and we felt like we were at home.

The cottage itself is unbelievably beautiful, luxury, well kept. It can easily accommodate several people. Everything was amazing about our stay there – the house, the design, the furniture, linens. Great kitchen, clean pool, amazing views of the sea and the mountains…

Saba is a small island, but it is really intoxicating! 

It was an unforgettable experience – one of a kind. We were really happy to live there and spend time on Saba, with Michael & Albert
amazing hosts.

We would strongly recommend Champagne Cottage for everybody who is looking for a new, unusual experience…
emotional and spiritual retreat.” –

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.
