Terri Bakker and Debbie Verdult
Pete's Cottage is a traditional wooden cottage, which was well maintained, lovingly preserved through its many years , and boasts some beautiful original architectural details. It has two bedrooms, a walk-in closet, a living room, dining room, one bathroom and a kitchen. As it is build in the quirky Saban style it is hard to take some spacious looking pictures. However our general feedback is that it is bigger than expected. We have recently imported our furniture and collectables from all over the world and it now has an internationally eclectic feel to it. Everything is clean and perfectly functional. It is located in the heart of Windwardside, a convenient (meaning 2 minutes) and easy (meaning flat!) walk to most of Saba's restaurants, supermarkets, and dive centers. It has a gorgeous view of Mount Scenery, and while you are in Pete's Cottage you will be part of the Saban life. You can sit outside and be private or immerse yourself in the day to day happenings in our little street. A friendly greeting to passers by often turns into a laugh, a chat and maybe a discussion about rain and cisterns ( maybe even a Carib or two) with the locals.
We are Debbie and Terri. We met on Saba in 2003. Terri was a scuba diving instructor on the Island and Debbie came for a holiday (Terri was NOT her instructor!) It was Caribbean carnival where we met and we ended up dancing all night. It was love at first sight with each other AND with Saba, and we married on the same day we met in 2007. In 2015 we bought our little cottage on the Island, Pete's Cottage, something we dreamed about doing for years. We are both teaching in Venezuela at the moment working our way back to Saba. We both love traveling to new places we haven't experienced before and prefer to be in the midst of that new experience. We do like our bed and environment to be clean and bug free. We will look for that in places where we stay and make sure that that is the same for Pete's Cottage. Sometimes we like luxury and sometimes we are happy with very basic accommodation. We do not believe that people are restricted by the country that they live in but everybody is a citizen of the world which we all share.
Pete's Cottage is in the middle of Windwardside in the heart of the Island. You will be in the middle of real Caribbean life. Where you can go within a two or three minute walk: The Busy Bee for great breakfast, coffee, and freshly made bread Sea Saba Advanced Dive Center to book amazing, world famous diving (or snorkeling--but really, why not then learn to dive?)
