About Summertime

The setting is breathtaking: five sunny acres of landscaped grounds adorned by an abundance of palm trees, bougainvillea and hibiscus ... large private pool ... vegetable garden ... and wooded grotto with antique stone terrace for sunset cocktails. After sunset, the view transforms from brilliant blue water to the mesmerizing beauty of the sea at night, glimmering with reflections of cruise ships and the romantic night lights of Montego Bay nine miles away.

Delicious home-cooked meals prepared by the Summertime cook are served on Royal Worcester china on the open-air poolside verandah. As a special treat on moonlit nights, meals are served on the terrace beyond the pool overlooking the romance of lights reflecting across the bay. Memorable dinners here can last for hours as guests relax into the heady ambiance of good food and drink, excellent service and a magnificent setting.

Interiors of this spacious Colonial manor have been refreshed with Laura Ashley fabrics, pretty pastel wall colors, and renovation of the kitchen and all bathrooms. The large living room opens to the covered dining terrace, casual sitting area and wet bar. Just beyond are the spacious open terrace and pool. Four bedrooms and the study (which can accommodate one or two extra guests) are on the main level. A mahogany staircase leads upstairs to two more spacious bedrooms.

Because the bedrooms are configured in three separate areas (two in the east wing, two in the west wing and two upstairs), Summertime is as appropriate for small groups of only 2, 4 or 6 guests as it is for a full house of 12 or 13. It does not feel like “too much house” for one or two couples and is wonderful for families ...............

“Our week at Summertime was absolutely our most wonderful family vacation ever. My parents, John and I spent relaxed days doing whatever we wanted to do while the kids were totally entertained with all the games and countless hours in that big pool. The staff treated our children with incredible loving care! The whole family is counting the days till we return to Summertime.”

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 the week’s events, including the Monday Night Manager’s Cocktail Party and the Wednesday and Friday night beach parties and buffets.

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 (ping pong table there too). The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.

For a great write-up of the Tryall Club, see Dana Vachon's article Club Jamaica in Departures Magazine.

The Tryall Club was chosen by Condé Nast Traveler for its Gold List of "the best places to stay in the whole world.”

    Jodi E. - Issaquah, WA - August 2013

  • Dear Linda,

    We felt very relaxed in this resort-style paradise! This is “our” spot! It was great seeing the staff again – no changes in their excellent service. Oliver was on his “A” game – terrific food! Omar, as always, so very gracious, and Marvette keeps things going! The mattresses were very comfortable, and the place looked great!

    Ted S. – Baltimore, MD – March 2013

  • Dear Linda,

    The staff at Summertime were all wonderful! They made us feel like we were at home. Always smiling, and going above and beyond for everyone. This is a beautiful property with great character. We just can’t say enough about how wonderful our 2-week stay has been!

    Craig R. – January 2013

  • Dear Linda,

    The staff is gracious - Omar and Oliver are gentle souls, the cleaning staff always greeted us with huge smiles and the gardener climbed trees to pick ripe mangos for us. We love the villa! There are so many activities available to guests - tennis, badminton, basketball, croquet, darts - all fun! The outdoor pool bar is great and the views are beautiful. We absolutely loved the house, the staff and everything about our villa vacation. We are already planning on when and how to return.

    Ted S. - Baltimore, MD - March 2011

  • Dear Linda,

    Our welcome back to Summertime was all we had dreamed of since our last visit. The warmth of the staff along with the many comforts of the villa are what keeps us returning. We are delighted at having a tennis court and Summertime is perfectly suited for us. The staff work beautifully together and we are so grateful to have had this respite.

    Mary D. - New York, NY - March 2011

  • Dear Linda,

    The staff is fabulous! We were taken care of by one and all. The staff is so attentive and extremely hard working. We were amazed at their attention to every detail and their friendliness. We loved every minute of our stay at Summertime. This is the perfect spot for a family get together.
