Located on the highest point at the renowned Tryall Club, Point of View sits on one of the most spectacular sites in the Caribbean … indeed, in the world. From its unique vantage point, a sweeping panorama stretches down the mountain and across the 18-hole championship golf course to the deep blue Caribbean and distant horizon. Read More
Despite its lofty perch, this private home is just minutes from the Great House, beach, golf and tennis pro shops via the villa’s complimentary transportation carts (two four-seaters and one six-seater).
An all-over renovation recently closed the home for two years. The result is a picture-perfect palate of 18th and 19th Century Colonial furnishings in tasteful harmony with this 21stCentury transformation. Remarkable are the natural cut stone floors, custom etched so they are actually cool and soft under foot. Bedroom floors are gleaming wide-plank mahogany complementing Chippendale, Queen Anne and Regency furnishings.
The Point of View grounds are a paradise for bird watchers: wild parrots, red-headed woodpeckers and John Crows are native. Actually, the homeowner has created a safe haven here for colorful love birds, finches, white doves, and beautiful Amazon Green and African Red-tailed Grey parrots. The gardeners and butler will “introduce” you to them in their cages if you wish. And don’t miss the oldest occupant who lives in the fountain, our resident turtle.
No description of this piece of land would be complete without mentioning a singular characteristic: silence. Many hours of the day, the only sounds are songbirds and the wind rustling through tall palms. If escape and quiet are the therapies you crave, this is the right place.
To waken here and step outside is poetry. As the morning sun touches the heavily-forested mountain across the valley, a pair of John Crows soar gracefully and noiselessly overhead. Morning is one of the many times of day when simply sitting still, looking and listening affirms that all’s right with the world.
Emerald green Zoysia grass covers the wide lawns and feels like velvet underfoot. For horticulturists, this vacation experience is enriched by an amazing 17 species of palms including Royal, Washingtona, Solitaire, Phoenix Robelenii, Christmas, Cycad, Zima Foxtail, Chamadorea, Areca, Queen, Japanese Fan and Lipstick Palm named for its red stem. Guests love to photograph the beautiful Bismarck Giant Fan Palm. Other artistically-placed blooms are Frangipani, Datura and gorgeous ginger lilies. The Sun Vanda orchid garden flourishes here and the Lantana attract butterflies.
Meals at Point of View merit special mention. Chef Conrad excels at his craft. His organic garden produces urugula, tomato, lettuce, sweet basil, chives, eggplant, parsley and much more produce in season. Memorable meals are served on Limoges, Villeroy Boch and Lynn Chase tableware with fine silver, crystal and linens. Even the napkin holders that complement each setting are distinctive!
All bedrooms have quiet remote control air conditioning, ceiling fans and safes. All bedrooms open through louvered French doors to the long verandah, dining and sitting areas … and sun-drenched pool just beyond.
