Welcome to White Owl, a 4 bedroom private oceanfront villa located in the exclusive Tryall Club in Montego Bay.

White Owl is one of the original villas at Tryall, built when Tryall was converting from a beautiful plantation on the Caribbean, midway between Montego Bay and Negril, to a first-class resort. Situated on a double lot on the ocean, it commands the eastern end of Beach Drive.

It is punctuated at one end by the signature fourth green bordered by the sea on the famous golf course and at the other a small canal leading to the ocean. All told, the property boasts 76 000 feet of waterfront with magnificent views and easy access to the water.

The home is in traditional Jamaican colonial style with two wings, each terminating in very large suite sized high cone ceiling master bedrooms on the sea, providing privacy and serenity. These bedroom air conditioners normally are idle, since the sea breezes keep the rooms delightfully cool. There are two additional bedrooms: one is a standard large bedroom, the other slightly smaller, both accommodate two standard single beds or a king bed – your choice. All four bedrooms have large ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional full bathroom. While there is a beautiful, large living room, the wrap around porch is the place to play backgammon in one area, read in another or converse in a third.

This is the first season this villa has been available for rent. For over 50 years it has been the home of one family and fully occupied by the family and their guests and friends. Typically, eight to ten people sat down for al fresco dining on the covered porch with garden and sea views. The staff will serve all meals, either formally or buffet/family style. The family did both.

STAFF The staff is housed in a third separate wing off the large redesigned kitchen. The head of the house, who also is the chief cook is a renowned shopper. She not only uses the onsite Great House market but once a week visits the Montego Bay open market for fresh produce and fruit. She has long relationships with a local fisherman who brings his boat to the jetty by the swimming area with his catch. She looks forward to receiving your order well in advance of your arrival to be sure that she can meet your desires during your stay.

The driver who serves the villa has a deep knowledge of the Montego Bay area and other areas of interest. You can arrange tours with him, visits to Negril, nighttime excursions and so forth. Of course, you have to be willing to tear yourself away from the beach, the golf course, the tennis courts, and the Beach Café and the Great House-- and most especially from the special Jamaican experience that is White Owl.

At The Tryall Club, the team is committed to continually improving their services and offerings to ensure that guests have the best possible experience during their stay. The Tryall Club is a private members club, so all guests 13 years of age and older are required to take out a Temporary Membership, which will be charged upon arrival at check-in.

Temporary Membership Dues now start at USD $32 per day, plus a 15% service charge, for guests ages 16 years and older who stay for one to four days. For guests who stay for five to seven days, the Temporary Membership Dues are now US $160 plus a 15% service charge. Children between the ages of 13 and 15 pay at a discounted rate of 50% plus a 15% service charge. For children 12 years and younger, Temporary Membership Dues are complimentary.

White Owl was laid out perfectly for our multi-generational group with everything centered around the outdoor space. The location of this villa was really convenient to the community beach and the golf carts made it easy to get around. The head of household Latoya thought of everything and made each day special in some way. Marlene and Andrea kept the place looking great and the twice-a-day laundry was really above and beyond. It was fantastic to come home with clean laundry. Rannoy's cooking was excellent. Our first night he made us steaks so tasty that my father-in-law asked him to make them again another night. My husband and I were really into the Jamaican nights he cooked for us, especially the curry goat, braised oxtail and rice and peas, oh and the key lime pie, cookies, chocolate cake, cheesecake and birthday cakes made from scratch. Both Rannoy and Latoya took extra care with my 3 year old son Jake. They made sure he had his coveted life cereal for breakfast and a few meals actually prepared him something special because he's not as adventurous an eater as the adults. The Tryall Club exceeded almost all of my expectations, especially the Reggae night (both food and music). The beach and beach bar/grill were really convenient with really good pizza and sandwiches. The swimming area was really nice and the chairs and beach towels made it easy.
