Drive through the impressive entrance gates with their tall stone columns to enter this unique and lovely home, beloved by the families who return year after year. Interiors feature an eclectic mix of English Colonial, French and Jamaican furnishings on floors of cool white limestone and rich mahogany. Bombay chests, antiques and art, and Oriental and French linen rugs enrich the rooms.
Sea Island sits on seven private acres of gently sloping land with a view of the sea beyond its private tennis court and lush lawn. Grounds are adorned by Royal Palms and trees bearing breadfruit, mango, naseberry, pimento and wild orchids.
The favorite gathering place for conversation and the tranquil view is the 125-foot L-shaped verandah with Italian marble tiled wet bar. Here, too, is the al fresco dining area for memorable home-cooked meals created in Sea Island’s state-of-the-art kitchen with 6-burner commercial stove, microwave, ice maker, dishwasher, and unique collection of beautiful dinnerware and table linens. Chef Brenda invites youngsters to help her make her legendary chocolate chip cookies here!

The Tryall Club Membership
A significant amenity for guests in this villa is membership at the excellent Tryall Club. On 2,200 acres, Tryall’s golf course is among the most beautiful in the world. Its 18 hillside and seaside fairways have been home to the Johnnie Walker, Mazda and other PGA championship events. The resident pro offers workshops and private lessons. The Tryall tennis club features nine Nova Cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world-class pro’s on call. All white attire required.
The beach is well planned for parents and children. Have lunch at the beach bar. Work out in the well-equipped gym and compete in the new Usain Bolt Games Room at the Great House (teens love it). Jog the marked trails. Snorkeling, kayaking, Hobie Cat and sunfish are complimentary. Glass bottom boats, charter fishing, a boat to the reef and any captained craft attract various fees. Enjoy weekly events like complimentary Manager’s Cocktail Party on Mondays, as well as Beach BBQ and Reggae Night beach parties for an additional fee.
On the hill, enjoy the historic Great House for daily 4:00 tea and sweets. Shop at the convenient commissary and chic boutique, and meet for happy hour and snacks at the casual bar. Also at the Great House is the new Usain Bolt Games Room open all day and night for ping pong, pool, air hockey, foosball, shuffleboard, chess and checkers, board games, comfy reclining chairs and HDTV. And don’t miss the massive Tryall pool. The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.
