Light clothes for during the day when the temperatures are usually in the high 70’s to low 80’s. A light sweater would be recommended especially during the night in the winter months.

No. Saba is a very relaxed and informal island. You can go to all of your restaurants in shorts and t-shirts if you wish.

How is the night life on Saba?

It is really what you make it. Many guests just hang out at the house listening to the stereo or reading. The pool area is a very popular place to spend time as it is only a few steps away from the refrigerator in our outside bar area.


You can go out to one of the excellent restaurants for dinner. If you just want to have a drink and chat with the locals, we usually go to Swinging Door's or Saba’s Treasure which is a very short walk from the house.


Should I buy duty free liquor in the State or Europe to consume on Saba?

Only if you want to pay higher prices. There are no duties on Alcohol or cigarettes on Saba and prices are very reasonable by Caribbean standards. There is a good selection of wines, spirits and beer at both Corner Imports and Big Rock.


Is Saba Gay friendly?

While not a “Gay Destination” the island is very open and friendly with a small group of local gay residents. What people like about the island is basically nobody really cares about such things! The basic attitude there is “people are people”. Quite the contrary from some of the more conservative islands.


Do I need to rent a car?

Not really. As Iris House is located in Windwardside, you can walk to all the shops and restaurants and bars in the village. For getting around to the other villages, our friendly taxi drivers will pick you up and return you to the house. The government sets prices and you do not have to worry about getting overcharged.


How about shopping on Saba?

We have two fully stocked supermarkets in Windwardside where you can buy provisions for your stay. If you want to have the fridge stocked up on your arrival let us know and it will be there upon your arrival.


There are several very nice shops in Windwardside where you can pick up souvenirs for back home. Sea Saba has the best selection of T-shirts on the island and a stop there is definitely worth your time.


Do you have an on-island manager?

Yes. Michael Chammaa, a long time resident of Saba and former co-owner and chef of Brigadoon restaurant, is our manager. He will stop by either on the day of your arrival or the next morning and is always available during your stay should you need her. Mid week maid service is available upon request.
