OverviewCamelot is a staffed two-bedroom villa at the legendary Tryall Great House. The villa is distinguished by breathtaking views and convenient access to Tryall Club amenities, and recently added a private plunge pool.
This impressive two-bedroom Tryall Great House villa is notable for its stylish renovation (in 2017) and breathtaking views.
The villa is brilliantly located on the ridge of the hill adjacent to the elegant 18th Century Georgian Great House. Its double doors open onto the convenient central village green and a short stroll to several Club amenities including tennis courts, the large main swimming pool, well-equipped fitness center, front desk, salon, Kids Club, games room, boutique and food-wine-liquor market. Three minutes by golf cart or complimentary shuttle are the championship Tryall Golf Course Pro Shop and long private beach with bamboo umbrellas to shade chaises … as well as volleyball, basketball, a multitude of water sports and the Beach Bar & Café.
Camelot’s architecture is modern Colonial in style. Its wide veranda extends the full 75’ length of the balcony and ends with the private plunge pool. The plunge pool was added as of October 2017, allowing Camelot guests a more private pool option besides the nearby Tryall Club Great House infinity pool (see Nearby Amenities below).
The Master Suite opens to a tiled terrace and the plunge pool. The second equally large bedroom opens through double doors to its own sunny balcony. This bedroom is ideal for children and/or adults.
Everyone’s favorite gathering place is the 75’ furnished veranda, a comfy open-air extended living room with breakfast table, bar and breathtaking view day and night.
A third full bathroom is off the living room and serves as a powder room for guests.
Inside, the living area has deep-cushioned furnishings and a DVD/DCR system with ample cushy seating for all. A queen sofa bed here can accommodate a fifth guest on request. Paulette is the Camelot housekeeper, laundress and breakfast chef. From her fully-equipped kitchen, she offers a variety of Jamaican and other specialties. For a very reasonable extra fee, she will also prepare and serve dinner or leave it ready on the stove if you wish to dine later.
It’s your choice to dine inside or out on the breezy balcony enjoying the enviable canvas of deep blue sea and lush green countryside that fills the view. The nighttime view from your veranda to the town of Montego Bay is a magic play of gently twinkling lights across the sea and occasional romantically-lit cruise ships. Simply beautiful.
Another dining option is just down the hill at the Beach Café for an alfresco lunch or dinner served on the waterfront terrace overlooking the sea. Beach buffet parties are twice each week for various fees. Off property are four nearby restaurants you may wish to sample for yet another authentic Jamaican experience (The Lobster Trappe, Smoked Marlin, Skye Beach and 15 minutes farther to excellent cuisine on The House Boat).
A special treat for guests in Camelot on any day of your stay is a complimentary 10-minute hand or foot massage for each guest. Simply ask your housewoman to request a spa technician from the nearby Salon. Don’t get up! She’ll come to you at the villa at a time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. One per guest. No charge, but please tip. Enjoy!
Camelot is one of only three two-bedroom private detached villas available for rent at the Great House.
The snow may never slush upon the hillside.
By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot. CAMELOT!!

A 75’ balcony extends the length of the villa. The Great Room and both bedrooms open through wide doors to stunning ocean and mountain views.
An additional guest can be accommodated on a queen sofa bed in the living room. The nearby third bathroom includes a bathtub/shower combination.
Paulette is your housekeeper, laundress and cook. She will shop and prepare your breakfast and lunch daily. She can also prepare and serve dinner on request (for small fee). If you wish, she will stay through dinner to serve and clean up before going home for the night. Otherwise, her hours are 8:30 a.m. till 5:30 p.m.
Guests are asked to tip Paulette US$15 per bedroom per day.
Kindly increase her gratuity by an additional US$30 per day for each dinner she prepares.
Paulette’s preparation of breakfast and lunch does not attract an additional gratuity.
