Eureka at Tryall Club
Caribbean / Jamaica / Montego Bay
Eureka is the closest anyone is ever likely to get to stay in a Jamaican Great House that is furnished of the period and opportunities such as this do not come along very often.
This utterly delightful home stands amidst very pretty gardens and commands a clear unobstructed view of the sea and golf course.
Views such as this need to be taken advantage of and this is exactly what Eureka achieves. The drawing room, dining room, and the three bedrooms all face seawards and open onto the deep covered veranda which spans the entire width of the house and is comfortably furnished with relaxation in mind. These graceful rooms of perfect proportion are light and airy with high casket ceilings and polished wooden floors. The owners have curated a remarkable collection of 18th and 19th-century Jamaican mahogany furniture which is set off to great advantage by the mellow off-white walls, striking fabrics and accented by an important collection of Jamaican art that is inspiring, thought-provoking, and a joy to look at.
Dining is an exceptional feature with fine silverware, delicate porcelain, and exquisite linens. In fact, it is likely to be a difficult decision deciding upon whether to dine inside in the handsome dining room or outside on the veranda but either way, the perfect flow from the drawing room to the dining room to the veranda is highly conducive to good company and relaxation. Afternoon tea will no doubt become a ritual, encouraged by the splendid drawing room which gives the impression of waiting for 4.00 p.m., and to add to the enjoyment, you may choose your teacup and saucer from a collection of period pieces.
The impressive master bedroom is to the west with a particularly grand mahogany half-tester bed. Equally impressive is the en-suite bathroom which has a walk-in shower, Jacuzzi bath, bidet, and twin vanities. To the east are the two other bedrooms, one with antique twin beds that can be joined and an en-suite shower room and the other with an antique queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom with a shower and bath combination. All of the bedrooms open onto the veranda. A second master bedroom is located in a private cottage with a triple-aspect outlook overlooking the ocean and surrounding grounds. The spacious bedroom furnished with a magnificent antique Jamaican four-poster bed opens to a veranda with an infinity plunge pool. The large bathroom has an exceptional marble floor and includes a walk-in shower and a separate roll-top bathtub.
The gardens that surround Eureka are of particular note as they contain many unusual species of hibiscus as well as numerous plants with multi-hued leaves of different forms and textures. Below the veranda is a lovely swimming pool with a beautiful Italian mosaic of a griffon and to the rear of the house is a tranquil terrace shaded by a pergola that has a jade vine growing up and amidst it. To sit here is to stimulate the senses as water ripples down a wall, the breeze rustles the leaves and the inimitable scent of just-mowed grass pervades the air.
The charm of staying at Eureka is embellished by the very special team of staff who deliver a level of hospitality for which Jamaica is legendary. They comprise a chef, housekeeper, laundress, and gardener.
