Signing of the sale agreement for Captain’s Quarters.
SABA–The property known as Captain’s Quarters, on Saba, has been sold to J.W. Hotel & Apartments N.V. by the Public Entity of Saba. Present for the signing on Tuesday were Island Governor Jonathan Johnson, Legal advisor Gerald de Jong and Government Information Services officer Saskia Matthew on behalf of Saba, and Wim and Johanna Van ‘t Hof on behalf of J.W. Hotel and Apartments N.V, the buyer.
Captain’s Quarters, once a 19th-century whaling captain’s house expanded and converted into one of the finest guesthouses on the island, was destroyed by Hurricane George in 1998. Since then numerous attempts had been made to sell this property but failed due to complex administrative and legal hurdles. Those issues have been resolved and the property could now be sold and further developed by J.W. Hotel and Apartments N.V
Saba representatives are pleased that a tourism entrepreneur who is well established on the island was able to purchase the property to redevelop it.
