Two Bedroom / Two Bathroom Cottage On Jonnys Ground
About Mark Johnson
We are a professional yachting couple. Michael is a Yacht Captain of over 20 years and Stacey is the Purser/ Chef. We fell in love with the island of Saba after a weekend away from St. Maarten. Stacey fell absolutely in love with Saba the first day flying into the airport, the people stargazing at night and silence and peace which follow us in a very populated world. This property is their little piece of paradise. They have dived many of the sites around the island, brought the boat they work on as well as the owner and crew to the property and use this place as somewhere they can get away from all the hype from the world. It's our little piece of paradise.

Beautiful quiet cottage
The house, or cottage is perfectly clean and beautifully updated. The kitchen was stocked and their offer of a grocery shop before arrival is a really good option as the grocery stores close at 7pm and are closed on Sundays. The bedrooms have plenty of storage and the beds are extremely comfortable. The walk into town is pretty quick about 10 minutes, but the walk back is very steep and we usually got a taxi back up the hill at night. The pool was kept clean and the outdoor furniture is as pictured, very comfortable. We dove with Sea Saba and the diving was beautiful!
Laid back well kept property
Recently gutted and redone. It looked like the paint had just dried a month ago. Grrrrrr8 views! Getting there with bags on the edge of a mountain would have been inpossible, had it not been for Alehondro and Mark. They met us a the airport, took us and our bags immediately. Modern appliances that work. TV is a bit fritzy because it is a dish and the winds were really stout. Be prepared for lots of up and down walking to get into town (10 min going down, forever getting back). Great place, great island, great people!
Thank you for your great review!
Michael and I are so happy you enjoyed Compass Cottage the way we do! Yes the hike to town is interesting and also one of favorite adventures when we finally get out the door.
The people, our place and the island are something we long to get back to more often than not!!!
We love Saba! So happy you shared our experience. Hope to see you again thank you for adding to the good vibes we want to keep bringing to the cottage!
We wish you many wonderful travels in the future!!!
Sensational Saban experience with a premium sunset view and pool!
I cannot imagine returning to Saba without Compass Point on my menu! Walking distance to Busy Bee bakery and cafe, Windwardside shops and restos and the careful Saban hospitality when required. A gem without a doubt. Thanks to Mark Johnson for our support and kindness. Hiking haven.
