Ever dream of walking in a storybook village on a lane that leads to an enchanted love nest?  Follow these instructions:  Turn left from "Main Street" Windwardside following the road to the Post Office.  Another 200 steps down the hill you'll notice a Balinese-style garden. Stop.  Look around.  The lily pond is framed by a gazebo.  The stone walkway has been embossed with palm fronds on one side, your private herb garden on the other with bamboo and a koi pond just beyond.  Take a few more steps...a bougainvillea enshrouded trellis beckons you to Lilly Pond Cottage...

The Banana Tree Bed

Country Kitchen Complete With A Real Hearth...

Shower as you pick grapes...too much!

Pass through the door and enter another world...this is no ordinary cottage.  Artist Robbie Lynn has completely transformed the interior.   Formerly known as "Weaver's Cottage", this Circa 1848 abode unites Saba tradition with a modern artist's fantasy.  Robbie just couldn't help himself.  The son of renowned artists Martin (sculptor) and Gloria (painter) Lynn, Robbie grew up on the beaches of Grande Case in French Saint Martin.  It never dawned on him that a home could be anything other than a work of art!

The ultimate country kitchen is complete with the original hearth.  Drawer and cabinet pulls were forged to match; an old-fashioned hand pump faucet provides a stunning visual--but not to worry, water flows from modern plumbing.  All amenities are modern and fully functional.  The great room is spacious.  A comfortable sitting area is cozy for two but roomy enough to invite fellow divers over to share the awe of this place.  A full stereo system is available with quad speakers perched on custom designed "leaves" in the ceiling corners.  The magnificent 4-poster banana tree bed, complete with staged butterflies, dominates the back half of the room.   Sound like too much?  The bed is perched over an indoor pond (yes, hand cast, sculpted stones) that mirrors the outdoor oasis.  The private outdoor bathroom is also crafted from local stones--your ceiling a trellis with wandering grape vines.  A walk-in closet features a trompe l'oril floor!  Neither a nook nor cranny has been neglected--each little corner has been treated as an opportunity to elicit a smile. 

Tempted to stay somewhere you'll never forget?  Contact Lynn whether you're a diver or non-diver.  5 night minimum stays start at $675 per person.  7nights and 10 dive packages:  $1385 per person.  For even more photos, link to Lily Pond's website.
