The house is very well furnished and the beds are very comfortable. The bedrooms are beautiful with very comfortable mattresses. The property is spacious with a gorgeous view from the porch. We really enjoyed the deck, pool and porch. Very nice, secluded courtyard. Windows and doors allowed for great cross breezes. Nice, easy walk within minutes of stores, bakery and excellent restaurants. Mas Cohones, Mount Scenery and Dancing Place trails are all closeby as is the Trail Shop. Michael and Tricia were very welcoming, nice and helpful. Could not imagine staying anywhere else and will book again if we return to Saba. That porch view is etched in my memory.

I have nothing to say but great things about my stay at Iris House. The location is right next to a lot of amenities and is a nice walk away to a lot of food places up to the trailhead to Mt. Scenery. The house is very spacious and the air conditioning is very accommodating when I'm in my room. Pool is nice, the overall area is very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend anyone going to Saba to stay at Iris House.

My friend and I had the best experience in Saba during the Sea & Learn program in October, and staying at Iris House was part of the magic! The ocean view is simply stunning, the pool after a dive or a hike is delightful, and the house itself is cosy, well furnished and beautifully decorated. The house is located at a 2 min walking distance from downtown Windwardside (restaurants, bakery, grocery stores, Sea Saba dive center...). If I'm lucky enough to visit Saba again, Iris House will be my first choice without a doubt!

Iris house is a perfect location near shopping and the market. Michael was wonderful and checked on us several times to ensure everything was ok. Well equipped house and the kiddos LOVED the pool. I highly recommend Iris house for up to 4 adults.
