About Barney Gibbs
Father and Son, Chris and Barney Gibbs are born and bred-Barbadians. Saba and Barbados have shared seafaring traditions since the 17th century, and the flat, limestone island to the South is a vastly different landscape to Saba's volcanic peaks. But both islands are home to Chris and Barney.
Barney Gibbs purchased this villa in 2009
Why Barney Gibbs chose Saba
Purchased as a virtual ruin in 2009, the Barbadian owners of Spyglass Villa have meticulously renovated the property as a refuge for all who choose to stay here. Through careful study of the unique Saban vernacular in its over 100 year old cottages, we have not departed from the well-crafted and intricate details of Saban architecture, while also maintaining a contemporary, but comfortable feel in the property. Saba is a quiet and charming island surrounded by spectacular sea and mountain views and each space in the home was designed to ensure that visitors enjoy peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
‘Spyglass’ is the current name given to the property which was formerly constructed and occupied by well-known Saban Calvin Holm.
After a few visits to the island the current owners decided to undertake a renovation of the property to make the house befitting of the beautiful, almost 360 degree views of the sea and mountain.
