As someone who is in the commercial finance industry... I cringed when I read what you put your poor banker through :-)

I develop and broker hotels and resorts. Fun. I have a friend who built a super resort on the Travel & Leisure 2006 #1 island in the Caribbean, Saba. His resort is also in the book, 1000 places to see before you die. He said he wants to travel more. So his place is for sale. It is in the Netherlands Antilles, so I thought, you might have a friend in Amsterdam who wants to enjoy a view of 5 islands, scuba dive and lay back in a beautiful resort, which can be a corporate retreat, or a family home. $3.5 million. www.willardsofsaba.com.
