Its architecture defines spacious bedroom suites, a long furnished verandah perfect for dining outdoors, a striking red inside dining room, and a large family playroom ~ all enhanced by overviews of the long private pool, acres of landscaped lawns, and breathtaking views of the deep blue Caribbean Sea.

Distinctive at Haystack is the wonderful heated pool.  (Access by youngsters from the upper level of the villa to the pool is limited by baby gates.) Also on the pool level is the spacious Family Room with ping pong, foosball, games table, and 44" flat screen television.

Notable is Haystack's handsome granite and tan tile en-suite bathrooms.  All are thoughtfully designed, well lit, and very stylish.

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.  It's 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 4 Agile Turf courts and 5 Nova Cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world-class pros on call.  All white attire is 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 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 a complimentary Manager’s Cocktail Party on Mondays, as well as Beach BBQ and Reggae Night beach parties for an additional fee.

*Tryall Club Temporary Membership Dues

Dear Sharon,

We had an amazing time at Haystack and I was happily surprised that I didn’t miss being on the beach. The villa and setting are spectacular, and staffed with outstandingly sincere, personable, talented and respectful people.

Thank you,
