Three nights in Saba to dive and hike: Scout's Place turned out to be the perfect base. It's in the middle of Windwardside, steps to two grocery stores, several restaurants, craft shops, the nature reserve office and the beginning of the Mt. Scenery steps; there was even a RBC Royal Bank ATM across the street. The trails are well marked, but bring hiking boots. Upstairs rooms had great breezes and despite the lack of screens we never saw a mosquito. Sure did hear a lot of tree frogs. Comfortable bed, older but well-chosen furnishings, always hot water in the shower (do respect their many pleas to conserve water; it's a scarce commodity on Saba). If I recall correctly, you may want to bring your own shampoo. Free wifi worked well in the restaurant, sometimes in the room. The included breakfast is tasty and more than enough to eat, though I did enjoy the luxury of an "Alemann" coffee, strong with whipped cream. Boxed lunch available --one is plenty for for two people, if all you're doing is diving. Sorry we weren't there for Wolfgang's special cooking evenings, but the regular dinners were also tasty and reasonably priced. The daily specials can run out -- pre-order yours in the afternoon if your heart is set on it. Taxi to and from Saba Divers was included in the dive package and very prompt; Scout's Place also arranged a taxi waiting for us at the airport. The views were indeed splendid, although Saba's status as a cloud magnet meant we didn't see as much of the stunning night sky as we'd have liked.
