The well-appointed rooms of Tranquillity stretch over 6,300 square feet of rich marble floors. Artful landscaping ensures year-round flowers in bloom which in turn ensure regular visits from hummingbirds and parrots. The grounds resemble a private park dotted with mango, guava, banana, plantain, lime, soursop, apple and papaya trees.

The entrance draws you past an indoor waterfall garden as you approach the spacious Great Room which opens to an 86′ furnished verandah. Meals are served by the butler on the verandah overlooking two acres of landscaped grounds and the sea ~ or served in the inside formal dining room ~ or, as a special treat, served in the romantic waterfront gazebo by candlelight. On calm nights, two or three local fishermen may ease through the water beyond the gazebo carrying torches and laying nets for the fresh catch they will deliver to your chef the next morning. The overall ambiance is quite beautiful.

Two large master suites are privately located in a wing on the east end of the villa. Two smaller bedrooms are beyond the living room on the west end of the villa. The fifth, sixth & seventh bedrooms are in the Beach Cottage across the lawn on the water’s edge. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The state-of-the-art kitchen in the main house includes a 6-burner Vulcan gas stove, microwave and double fridge with icemaker.

Meals here merit special attention. Chef Danny has extensive experience in a number of cuisines including Italian, Spanish and Jamaican. He received his formal training in Italy and has been Head Chef at several of Montego Bay’s better restaurants. Danny’s experience and creativity, as well as his willingness to create menus to suit special requests, make the culinary part of everyone’s stay at Tranquillity something to savor. A formal herb garden is steps from the kitchen and provides the Chef with fresh herbs and vegetables for your meals. His fresh kale and spinach soup can be a healthy and delicious way to start one of your dinners. Chef’s special menus.

Tranquillity shares a basketball hoop and private tennis court with neighboring Serenity on the Beach (bring racquets and balls). Combining Serenity and Tranquillity creates an 11-bedroom compound with 2 pools, tennis court, long beachfront and staff of 10. Beyond Tranquility is our glamorous neighbor, Noble House on the Beach, which accommodates 8 or 10 more guests. This 8-acre beachfront compound is a favorite for weddings and family reunions. All 3 villas are child friendly and very private from each other.

Paddle boards and sea kayaks are among the complimentary water sports available. 100 yards offshore is Holden’s Reef, a continuation of the barrier reef complex that fronts much of Jamaica’s north coast. Easily reachable by kayak, this live reef is home to a myriad of tropical fish and corals. At low tide, portions protrude above the water so you can step from your kayak to snorkel in shallow water. On the ocean side, deeper waters beckon the more adventurous or scuba equipped.

If you’ve left your pets behind, be advised that Tranquillity is home to a friendly dog named Gus. He is not permitted in the house or on the verandah, his accommodations are an on-site kennel area. But Gus does spend days in the yard and on the beach, and the staff cares for him. He is gentle, well-behaved and loves guests if you want to interact with him. Accommodations

Kingsize bed in a high-ceilinged 400-square-foot suite with flat screen cable television. En-suite bathroom has bathtub plus separate walk-in shower. French doors open to private furnished verandah. 3 steps down and path to pool, gazebo and beach.

The lower level opens to a private terrace on the edge of the beach where meals are served if only the Beach Cottage is occupied.

Upstairs are the kingsize bedroom, over-the-beach balcony with lounges for sunning or star-gazing, and large en-suite marble bath with oversize walk-in shower.

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. Its 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 nine Nova Cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world-class pro’s on call. All white attire 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 new 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 complimentary Manager’s Cocktail Party on Mondays, as well as Beach BBQ and Reggae Night beach parties for an additional fee.

On the hill, enjoy the historic Great House for daily 4:00 tea and sweets. Shop at the convenient commissary and chic boutique, and meet for happy hour and snacks at the casual bar. Also at the Great House is the new Usain Bolt Games Room open all day and night for ping pong, pool, air hockey, foosball, shuffleboard, chess and checkers, board games, comfy reclining chairs and HDTV.
