Saba Tribes are people who love Saba and love sharing what it has to offer. Whether you’re visiting or you live here, Saba is a remarkable place with extraordinary beauty and easy living that meets the dreams of many people — divers, hikers, explorers, nature lovers, artists, vacation enthusiasts, relaxing, enjoying great restaurants and lodgings and… with the internet, it makes it fast and easy for members of these tribes to communicate what they like about Saba all around the world.

Tribes is not a new word or idea, it’s been around for millions of years, but it’s used a lot these days to describe how people connect.

Tribes have similar interests, needs, purposes, values, beliefs, activities, passions and joys that unite them. Living, working and playing together.

Tribes are also known as:  fans – clusters – a pack – a clique – a herd – clubs – gangs – teams – a group.

  • Families and friends
  • Business owners and employees
  • Unions, charities, organizations
  • Different nations and cultures 
  • Brand choices and products
  • Social media connections on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, WhatsApp


Why are tribes important?

Tribes are about belonging and believing — deeply being part of something that matters so much to them they want to talk about it and have it known. It might be a cause, an activity, a special location (like Saba), the service they received from a business or person, a restaurant, a new product. They don’t tell everyone. They’re selective and that adds to Saba’s appeal and status.

Tribes lead. 

Tribes are persistent and powerful.

Tribes make things happen.

Tribes give and share and help others; caring about humanity and working to create positive change. 

Tribes know how to really live life and they do it with passion, commitment, exactitude and fun.

Saba’s tribes are leaders

  • Conservation authorities in the management of Saba’s National Marine Park and extensive network of hiking trails
  • Diving experts who know the world famous Saba Bank
  • Hiking specialists guiding you along the historical trails and up to the top of Mount Scenery
  • Hotel and restaurant connoisseurs offering Saba’s generous and friendly island hospitality
  • Local and international artisans living and running businesses together on Saba


Saba’s got fans

Fortunately Saba’s not a tourist trap. Not for the masses but… home to many loyal fans:

  • Enjoying the affordable, satisfying Caribbean lifestyle of this beautiful island
  • Relishing the peace and safety of Saba
  • Celebrating a friendly community, its history and culture
  • Savoring Saba’s exquisite nature and climate
  • Building a legacy for family and friends returning each year to favorite hotels, rentals, private homes
  • New tribe members buying land and building their dream house


We belong to many tribes

We moved to Saba in 2011 from New York City because the beauty and quality of life were incredible to us. Saba reminded us of how life is supposed to be lived… natural – generous – not rushed – peaceful – uncrowded – friendly – gorgeous weather and setting – safe.
We’ve built quite a wonderful life here. One we don’t want to get away from.

We belong to many Saba tribes: expats property owners — residents business owners. We’re not just real estate agents but leaders and teachers helping people learn all about Saba. We’re sharers – meaningfully reaching out to specific tribes and people so they know Saba exists.

Here’s our promise we’ll tell you the truth and give you the answers you’re looking for because we have the real experiences of relocating, buying land, renovating a house, running a business. We’re living the day to day change and dream you may be thinking about right now and we want to be helpful. To make a meaningful and positive difference for you and others. It’s our job to have that necessary conversation; to listen to what you truly want; to understand your ambitions, yearnings and even your fears, so you can answer this important question —
The Caribbean island of Saba: Is it right for me?

Don’t miss out

It’s exhilarating to be part of the free spirited tribes of Saba who have a place where they can get away from the madness of the world. We’re constantly learning from the tribes of Saba. Who they are as groups and what they want collectively and individually. What do they desire? What are they avid about? What don’t they like? More and more people see the value and the benefits Saba offers and are making smart choices to invest in their future; visiting, renting and buying properties.

Saba Island Properties has loyal tribes and counts on its tribal members to talk about Saba because that’s how Saba gets known. One person tells another and another and pretty soon 10 people know and visit Saba, and then 50 and eventually there are 1,000 new people who connect to Saba, ‘get Saba’, like it and adore this unspoiled island both on and off season; part-time and full-time.

We walked away from ‘the norm’ and we see others following and doing the same because
they see the life opportunities available on Saba and… they don’t want to miss out.
Come and be part of The Tribes of Saba or… create a new group.
The possibilities are wide open.

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.
