Hummingbird Villa is a roomy, elegant Plantation style, state-of-the-art home on two fenced, gated acres that offers every possible amenity, appointment and comfort. The Great Room has 20-foot ceilings, six sets of French doors and views of six islands and the ocean.

Having grown up on the ocean, I'm a die hard diver, fisherman, swimmer and surfer.

Daniel Guida purchased this house in 2004

I visited Saba on a diving trip and immediately fell in love with the incredible reef, pristine hiking trails, unspoiled natural beauty of the topside, but most importantly the people, who think and live outside the box and are among the most loving and kind in the world.

During my first visit, I was invited to people's houses for dinner, everyone waved as I passed, and people remembered my name. When I went home, I had Emails from the locals asking when I was returning. I felt like I had left part of my heart on Saba, so I returned 5 times and eventually bought a property and created Hummingbird Villa. My family and friends love it here, and we go out of our way to make each guest's stay a memorable experience.

Hummingbird Villa truly has a soul. It beckoned to me from the moment I set foot in the main house. The unique, warm, 18' wide cedar plank floors seem to come up to meet your bare feet. The spectacular sunrises over the ocean, with a view of 6 islands, is one of the most beautiful in the world and one never tires of it. The property is maintained with love. The villa is right across the street from the mountain road up to Mt. Scenery, so you can walk across the street and hike up to the highest peak in the Netherlands, or walk 250 feet in the other direction and hike down to Spring Bay, or walk 5 minutes and be in the center of the Windwardside village. At the same time, the villa sits on 2.5 secluded acres, so you can swim in the altogether without a care in the world. The property is substantial and designed to accommodate a large group while giving everyone privacy, space and unimpeded access to all common areas. Between the main villa, the guest house and two turnkey apartments, this property will comfortably sleep a group of 12 with plenty of breathing room.

PERFECTION

  • 5 out of 5
My partner and I, along with three friends headed to Saba without really knowing what to expect. We spent the week prior to our arrival island hopping around the caribbean, saving Saba for our final destination. We should have headed straight to hummingbird villa for our entire two week trip!

We arrived late on a Thursday evening as the earlier ferry’s had been cancelled. When we got to the house at 7:00 PM, we were in awe, even in the dark. The villa is beautiful. Leika was waiting for us at the door. Since we were coming in so late, she thought to get us some beer, wine, fruit, eggs, coffee, cheese.... all the things we would have wanted for our first night and breakfast the next morning. She also helped us get into a place for dinner that night. She does a amazing job making sure the guests have everything they need and want.

The next morning we got to see the house and grounds in the daylight. As said below, the pictures do not do it justice. It is stunning. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed on a vacation.

Having a pool is rare on Saba, and this house has a great one. The house is full of doors and windows to take advantage of that spectacular view. Open them up and let the air flow through, you will be instantly relaxed. The massive book collection was a wonderful surprise. Our guests read several.

The walk into Windwardside is easy enough. Just long enough to get you ready for a wonderful meal or cold beverage. The town is quaint and beautiful. Be sure to hike up Mt. Scenery!

My partner was in touch with Dan frequently during our stay with simple questions or seeking advice. Not only did Dan respond quickly, but with very entertaining responses and suggestions.

The bottom line: If you want to be surrounded beauty inside and out, experience a vacation like nothing you’ve ever had before and be more relaxed than you ever thought possible... visit Saba and stay at the nicest house on the island. Hummingbird Villa.

A 10-STAR GEM OF A VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
The old saying, "Pictures don't do it justice, " applies to Hummingbird Villa. The entire 2-acre property is manicured to perfection, walled and gated for privacy, has dizzying, magnificent views of the ocean and 6 islands, and is elegant without being ostentatious. The rates are about 25% of what I'd expect to pay for a villa of its size, in its location and with its appointments.

When my bride and I arrived, we were greeted by the lovely Lika, who gave us the tour, presented us with a beautiful basket of food and beverages that got us through our first night, and let us know she would be on premises if we needed anything. We wanted complete privacy on our honeymoom, so we weren't sure how an on-site manager/concierge would work out, but Lika lives at the far side of the property and we never saw or heard from her until we called her, and then she was Johnny-on-the-spot. Lika offered unobtrusive, excellent service that one would expect at a 5-diamond hotel, not a stand alone villa. Her knowledge of the island and recommendations were spot on.

The villa itself offers every possible amenity and every comfort of home including excellent mattresses, a kitchen with all gadgets and appliances, giant HDTV, stereo in every room, and a pristine pool and gorgeous yard with lots of places to frolic about.

We loved the fact that we could just walk outside on the property and pick papayas, mangos, bananas, guavas, limes and soursop. We created our own juice diet, went out for one meal a day, and we went home pounds lighter and feeling amazing.

The best and most touching feature of our stay was a blanket of seasonal flowers on our bed as a wedding gift from Dan, the owner.

We didn't venture out a lot, but when we did, we found the Saban people to be among the kindest and most friendly anywhere. We felt safe and at home everywhere on the island, day or night.

We cannot recommend this villa or Saba highly enough and we will fondly remember our honeymoon at Hummingbird Villa for the rest of our lives.

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES WE HAVE EVER STAYED

  • 5 out of 5
My partner, myself and another couple stayed at the Hummingbird for a week Feb 22, 2013. I have been in the travel industry for almost 30yrs now and can honestly say the Hummingbird Villa has been one of the most amazing and wonderful accommodations I have ever stayed in. For me, what truly makes a place, a trip, an experience unique and priceless is undefinable. I could say it was the fantastic views, the comfortable rooms, cooling pool, fully equipped kitchen, the books and movies available to it's guests. It could be the great location to everything such as hiking trails, restaurants, grocery stores etc. It could have been the excellent attention to detail and prompt service we received from the very moment we emailed the owner to inquire about the property to the house manager and gardener that made sure we had everything and were taken care of immediately. But I think that these are only parts of the sum of a whole experience that will leave you wanting more...and constantly thinking about when you can go back. You know when you are somewhere and you get that feeling of just letting go and exhaling? Come to the Hummingbird Villa and experience Saba....there is truly no place like it anywhere else. Each of us came home with memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Dan, for creating and imbuing the Hummingbird with love and wonderful energy, may we repay you in kind one day.

OH, THE VIEW!

  • 5 out of 5
If you're looking for luxury in a remote and exotic setting, Hummingbird Villa's the place for you. Dan has thought of everything. We travel a lot, and rarely have our expectations been exceeded like they were at Hummingbird. Saba is a place of unsurpassed natural beauty, simple yet elegant. The fragrant breezes, the sounds of the birds, tree frogs and goats, and the endless sky and ocean make for a restorative place to rebalance. Walking is not for the faint of heart! There are steep hills and the roads are narrow. But there is little traffic, and people are courteous. Although there isn't much night life, there are several excellent restaurants. And, of course, the caretaker, Paul, is an extraordinary chef and chocolatier.....if you want to be pampered at home. Treat yourself to the most wonderful house and view on the island!

Dear Dan,

Christmas in the Hummingbird Villa, the place where dreams are made.

The Ruff family needed to relieve stress from the 30 degree snowy weather of New York City. We wanted to share the Christmas season and celebrate our daughter Kyrah's 16th birthday somewhere "nice." We got "heavenly."

The Caribbean island of Saba was the location and the Hummingbird Villa was our answer to the place where dreams are made.

The warm sun and gracious hospitality will not be forgotten. You all helped make our daughter Kyrah's birthday a memorable one.

My favorite room is the den. At Hummingbird, I was able to write and let my creative juices flow with the natural ease of the warm winds, and that feeling was sheer heavenly pleasure. The 7 AM sun was all I needed to start my writing juices and in the evening, the sweet harmony of the little frogs was a delight.

Continue giving and sharing your fabulous villa. You will always be blessed by doing so.

Thank you, Dan, for the phone service. That extra treat was truly appreciated.

Continued health, wealth, and lots of love. Remember, successful people move differently!

Johnetta, Kyrha and Kerry Ruff
