“Best family vacation ever!”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our extended family (3 generations!) vacationed at Haystack in April 2014. We’ve done such family trips in the past (a villa in Tuscany, condos at Whistler etc.) and we unanimously agree – from ages 8-80 years – that our stay at Haystack was the best family vacation we’ve ever experienced.

Haystack is the perfect blend of casual elegance; where you feel like you’re somewhere very special yet you still feel at home. Being perched high up on the hill allows for a lovely breeze, even on the hottest of days, and a spectacular view of the ocean below. And, whether you’re an early riser and want to see the sun come up or you prefer to have dinner in the glow of the sunset you will be delighted.

The Villa staff are truly lovely. Extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Always nearby, yet never in your way. And the food? Food is probably the most important thing for our family and it was consistently fabulous from the plentiful fresh fruit platters in the morning to tastefully prepared local fish with our evening meals…and dessert selections that pleased us all! It can sometimes be a challenge to meet the tastes of such a large and varied group but Chef Rodney exceeded our expectations with every single meal.

Golf, tennis, snorkeling in the ocean, kayaking, sailing, searching for sea glass, touring the vast Tryall property or simply sitting around the private pool at the Villa, there’s something for everyone.

Our family was just together for Canadian Thanksgiving and our stay at Haystack was once again a topic of conversation. Thank you Chef Rodney, Claude, Norbert, Stephanie and all the rest of the team for helping us create such great memories. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon.

“A Slice of Heaven for a Week”

We have been able to travel all over Jamaica and Mexico with our four sons(16,14,12,10) and rent homes each year for spring break. This has been by far the best vacation yet. The home is gorgeous like being in a fabulous tree fort over looking the sea. It is a magnificent home yet feels so warm and comfortable for many families.
The staff is excellent and so charming and friendly. Being the mom of four sons, not to have to cook, clean, do laundry etc for an entire week is heavenly! We were able to play tennis, go to the ocean, swim at the pool and play cards all night with the boys while everyone else pampered us. The chef Rodney has spoiled our family with lobster, lamb, steak, fish absolutely delicious. We went out one night and regretted it because Rodney's meals are 5 star. Claude took care of anything we needed and could have wanted.
The Tryall Club itself it breathtaking and offers so many things to do for different generations.
The owners were delightful to work with and were able to give us many suggestions to do on our trip. There was not one hiccup in the planning of all 7 of us.
We can't wait to go back, the home and views are even more beautiful in person. It is beyond a perfect 10!
