‘There’s No Place Like Home’ – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties

Tulla's Cottage - Albert & Michael - Saba Island Properties 416 . 2777


Home is an emotional and valuable thing to every person and thinking about what home means to you is at the heart of our work.

Lots of people visit Saba and feel at home. And then… they keep coming back to their favorite hotel, rental property or their own villa or
Saban cottage because it’s home to them.

Saba is a family community with history and charm and it can remind you of where you grew up. Bringing back memories of your own family and friends. The house and neighborhood you lived in. Certain feelings of love and belonging somewhere special in the world.
Peaceful. Safe. Relaxed. Happy.

You’re people to us first

As expats in real estate we like to connect with your dreams and specific needs of being at home when helping you to find a property on Saba, be it for a week or for a lifetime. It’s not just about locating a certain number of rooms, a view, a pool, AC. Those details are important but there’s something deeper we’re after — finding you a home that means something to you inside and out. Rooms and a location that embrace you so you feel – “This is it! This is where I want to live.”

Our work goes beyond the obligations of real estate. You’re people to us first. Engaging with you is what we’re after and it’s what you deserve. We’re not talking ‘social media’ engagement with a few photos, @’s and #’s and loads of meaningless spam. We want to truly understand what you want. To know the change you’re going after as you look at properties. What are your hopes and desires and also your concerns and even your fears as you consider possibly living on Saba, part time or full time.

Should we keep Saba a secret?

With all of Saba’s beauty and benefits it’s essential to find out if a five mile Caribbean island with about 2,000 people is right for you?

That’s our job and we’re thoroughly happy to teach you what we have learned living and working on Saba since 2011. We’ll tell you the truth and give you all the facts as no one else can. Some people may head you in the right direction but they haven’t actually lived through relocating to Saba and all the procedures you will encounter to secure your rights and the privilege of living on this beautiful Caribbean island.

People who come to Saba are adventurous. Curious about the lifestyle. Looking for something new. (For some it’s not right. Too small.
Not enough nightlife or beaches.) But, for many others… Saba’s very unique. It has status. Mystique. It’s elite.

Maybe we should end the article right here and say no more. Not tell people:

  • It’s affordable
  • Easy to get to
  • How remarkable the quality of life is for people who want to retire well
  • How friendly the community is and the sense of belonging
  • The opportunities available
  • How safe it is for you and your family
  • The exceptional outdoor splendor and ease of living
  • About the passion and planning that penetrates your heart and keeps you up at night dreaming of your return and where you’re going to live, what treasures you’ll move to your new home on Saba and how you’ll watch the sun rise and set from your front porch


We can’t help ourselves

We love Saba the way it is and… we also want to share the gifts of Saba with others because we feel so deeply fortunate to live here.

Real estate — what people really want and yearn for as they look at renting, investing in land or a house on Saba — matters to us. We offer a new and dynamic approach. One that encompasses, with logic and heart, real thought about you — real care — real emotions — real meaning —
real life and especially — what a real home is for you.

That’s our intention and our promise to you. We’re living examples of what’s possible making a home on the Caribbean island of Saba.
It’s so worth it!

Connecting with the right person is crucial when looking to buy, sell or renovate a property because… this is your home.

Finding the perfect location, where you’ll be totally comfortable, is my ultimate goal for you.

My years of experience with Real Estate and Interior Design, will help guide you toward that positive result - be it a traditional Saban cottage - an impressive estate - a gorgeous piece of land or... investing in a business here on Saba.

We’ll find exactly what works for you; examine all the parameters of your future home, and I’ll do my utmost to put the pieces of the puzzle together for you.

Discovering the island of Saba was the change I was searching for. A change of lifestyle. Leaving the ridiculous, debilitating fast pace of New York City and financial stress behind.

I came to Saba to retire but soon learned that I was too active to sit around and had too much life knowledge and experience not to give back to other people. My work in real estate enables me to do that and much more - helping people live well, here on Saba.

My specialties are residential work - interior planning – contracting - purchasing furnishings, materials and all other resources - adept at space planning - keen ability with color selection - highly capable of working with every media and in a variety of styles.

Creativity and staying on budget are real priorities for me. Pulling it all together and making it easy for you, is what I do best. From Bermuda to France, throughout the United States; working with CEOs' of top global businesses, recent college grads, newlyweds. I’m here to make you feel completely at home.

Come to Saba. We’ll have fun making your wishes and plans a reality!

*I'm a graduate of Parsons School of Design and I was - Corporate Senior Vice President of Interior Design for W & J Sloane and - Corporate Design Director for the Bloomindale's stores. Then I opened my own company -- Pensis - Stolz Inc. / KPS - at The Design Center in New York City for over 35 years. What stories I have for you!

I worked with Givenchy - Leona Helmsley - the Chairman of Sony and The Museum Tower Apartment - The Four Seasons Hotels - Johnson & Johnson - Gloria Vanderbilt and more.

I was fortunate to have designed for the Vanderbilt show houses - Kips Bay - The Woolworth Estate - The Gould Mansion - The Gimble Estate -The Gold Coast of Long Island - the Scarsdale Country Club - The Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University - the King of Saudi Arabia - Mrs. Nat King Cole.

Everything from private train cars - planes - yachts - lobbies - and the joining together, designing and completely redecorating (from top to bottom) a double, four story townhouse in NYC. Wild and wonderful projects! I'm also proud to say I was a weekly contributor to the New York Times for many years.

I'm still working with private clients throughout the world and I absolutely love my work in real estate. I had no idea the people we would meet when we opened Saba Island Properties or the friendships we have made. We're connected all around the world. That's exciting, amazing and profoundly gratifying to me.
