Herman’s Cottage in Saba Island is a picture perfect Saban home having the benefit of a separate Guest Cottage with the garden area.
The setting is as appealing as the house itself. The Cottage sits on a mountain side just at the bend of a small road, amid lush tropical garden. A white picket fence lined with colorful shrubs and flowers defines the perimeter of this quiet and peaceful location. The atmosphere is that of a very private place away from the bustle of civilization, yet convenient for the islands amenities.
The views are stunning, below are the fairytale Island Airport and ocean waves crashing on rugged volcanic rocks.
