What Is the Most Important Investment We Make at Saba Island Properties?
Team work — Investing in people who help us to be successful every day in our job at Saba Island Properties — that’s the most important investment we make. With team work we make a difference — doing the absolute best work we can together — doing it better than we did it yesterday.
We have a great team!
Contractors, carpenters, housekeepers, plumbers, pool workers, tilers, stone masons, gardeners, painters, chefs, electricians, taxi drivers, store owners, event planners, restaurateurs. All kinds of people lending a hand. Leading with their knowledge, skills and experience. Each person is a champion and we’re immensely grateful for everyone’s expert service and trust.
It’s never about others doing the work and we take all the credit.

Why would you ever choose to work with toxic emotions that don’t nourish you or your team?
You always have a choice.
– The choice to do the kind of work you want to do
– The choice to create quality work
– The choice to work with people you like
– The choice to live the way you want
The ‘fellow feeling’ in team work; the rapport and respect we have for our colleagues, peers, friends and family are crucial elements we strive to maintain and enhance.
