Annabella at the Tryall Club Jamaica Vacation Rentals
Uniquely private, the feeling is being in a world of your own, wonderfully quiet and tranquil while just minutes away by complimentary golf cart are the amenities that have defined the Tryall Club as one of the finest private clubs in the world. Formerly named Vivana, the villa was bought by new owners in June 2016, renovated and renamed Annabella.
The heated pool is entered via a non-slip ankle-deep kiddie section. Just beyond, 3 steps lead down to a 3-foot depth. Wonderful for children. Maximum depth at the far end is 5 feet.
From the pool terrace, a spiral stairway leads up to a dreamy loft with a wet bar, kingsize deck bed and magnificent sea view. Travel-weary vacationers may nap here. Star-gazers may spend nights here. (A half bath is just down the spiral steps.)
The inside dining room seats up to 18. However, most guests choose to dine more casually on the rustic blue wood and glass table under an arbor of white Thumberger blossoms cascading from an overhead lattice. Hummingbirds, wild canaries and handsome yellow bellies are drawn to the nectar and are the delight of bird watchers.
The staff have invented a unique treat for their guests. Once each week, they produce Jamaica Day, a full day and evening of bona fide Jamaican foods, entertainment and lessons in Patois. The evening culminates in a torchlight party on the lawn. Indelible vacation memorable for parents and children alike!
Something almost magically remarkable is the quiet of the villa. To melt back into the deep cushions of a wicker chaise and close your eyes invites only the sounds of birds, the rustling of palm fronds and the wind.
I'd be remiss if I did not mention the seamless teamwork of the staff and the talents of our chef. From homemade Caesar Salad and Gazpacho to Lobster Thermador and Grand Marnier Souffle’s (Chocolate Sundaes for the kids).
Under a 20' peaked cedar ceiling, the Great Room features two dramatic mirrored granite bars with mini-fridge and icemaker. The Great Room opens on three sides to shaded outdoor sitting areas and the sunny pool terrace. A fenced gallery-type walkway wraps around a lush central atrium with fountain and koi pond. The gallery leads to the main level bedroom wing.
