is one of the prettiest and most private of all Tryall Club villas.
Located at the end of a cul de sac, it overlooks the 8th fairway
of the famous Tryall golf course and the Caribbean Sea. Lush landscaping
is adorned by ackee, breadfruit and lime trees and dramatic Royal
Palms as well as a myriad of tropical flowers and birds.
A short ride by Eureka's complimentary golf cart
leads to the tennis courts and Great House with commissary, tour
desk, Kids Club, bar, restaurant, cigar shop and fine jewelry
Eureka's rooms are designed around the spacious
central Great Room (650-square-feet in size) with cable television,
sound system and mirrored wet bar with blender for exotic tropical
drinks. Glass doors open wide to the 130' verandah that fronts
the entire villa. This verandah is everyone's favorite gathering
place. Here, four comfy individual sitting areas overlook the
pool and glorious view. Each morning, eye-opener coffee is placed
on the verandah before sumptuous breakfasts are served.
Through a columned archway is the inside formal
dining room with mahogany table under a whimsical chandelier.
Most guests, however, prefer to dine more casually on the verandah
or shaded poolside tables.
Privately located in the west wing is the master
bedroom. The east wing includes the powder room and two smaller
bedrooms which open both to the verandah and to an interior connecting
hallway. Throughout the villa are original art and fanciful custom-painted
mirrors and design accents.
A recent renovation created a large state-of-the-art
kitchen with six-burner commercial gas stove and grill and a distinctive
center island of local Mahoe wood. Chef Andrea indulges Eureka
guests in many specialties including homemade soups, jerk pork
and chicken, escoveitch fish, charcoal grilled tenderloin, orange
pudding, key lime and coconut cream pies ~ and artistic presentation
at every meal served on fine bone china.
If you've left a pet behind while you take a vacation,
be advised that Eureka is home to a lovable golden dog, Ginger.
She is docile with adults and children and, unless called, remains
very much behind the scene.
