Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Sleeps 17

On floors of cool Jamaican marble in hues of gray, pink, cream and salmon; rich mahogany; high ceilings and lovely antiques. Knockando evokes a sense of old Jamaica updated with contemporary comforts and amenities.

The living room opens wide to the heart of the house. A 1 300 square foot veranda with generous seating areas in white canvas on oversize bamboo sofas and chairs under five ceiling fans. At one end of the veranda is a bamboo wet bar, ice maker, fridge and cable television. At the opposite end is a wheelchair accessible bathroom and gently ramped path to the pool terrace just below. Home-cooked meals typically are served alfresco on the long veranda. Three other dining areas include the option of an elegant indoor dining room with a 10' mahogany pedestal table set with Rosenthal, Minton or Royal Worcester china and sterling silver.

Knockando is Gaelic. It refers to the distillery in Speyside, Scotland, renowned as home of the finest single malt scotch in the world.

Round Hill Hotel and Beach Club Membership

A special amenity available to guests in this villa is membership at Round Hill, just minutes from the villa and one of the finest private resorts on Jamaica's north coast. Round Hill offers a jogging trail, gift shop, logo shop, beach bar, piano bar, Wednesday manager's cocktail party, continental cuisine in the hotel restaurant and unforgettable long sunsets from the waterfront terrace.

For additional charges, members may enjoy the spa, tennis courts, Pineapple Kids Club, fitness center, a range of water sports and parties (Monday beach party and Friday Jamaica night).

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. 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 pros 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 barbecues 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 high definition television. Do not miss the massive Tryall pool. The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.
