Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay at the Windjammer in Boscobel was absolutely wonderful. The beauty, cleanliness and ocean view were spectacular. We enjoyed your home because it was so private, and we had a chance to be with our family, just sharing the beauty and peacefulness without the touristy feeling.Your wonderful staff treated us with such care, respect and warmth. We felt like royalty. They are to be commended. In our group there were three persons who had special diet needs -- vegetarian and allergy. In addition there were others who were fussy about what they ate. Your staff prepared meals that met each need without missing a beat. As a matter of fact, the fussy eaters ate things they didn't want to eat at home.



Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope that we will be able to come many more times in the future.

great time BEST STAFF ever!

  • 5 of 5
we stayed a week over thanksgiving and had a great time. The home was clean and located on a great reef for snorkeling, which we did every day! The pool and yard was beautiful too, great sunsets outside eating great meals every night. Now the home , pool and ocean where great BUT the STAFF made our trip memorable. Ms Jenni's cooking, Ms Tasha's service and smile, Mr Jabon enthusiastic attitude to make sure we all have a great time was second to none. We ate great jamaican cusine daily, played games at night with the staff, laughed and felt like they were family. They make a great trip super special! Thanks for a thanksgiving we will never forget!

THE WINDJAMMER...FOREVER MY EXTENDED FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
EVERYTHING ABOUT THE WINDJAMMER IS EXCEPTIONAL....

THE HOME...WELL MAINTAINED AND GORGEOUS

THE STAFF...I wouldn't even consider them staff...they are FAMILY now.

Everything from the meals to the conversations that I had with Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Tasha and Jabon were amazing...

There were many tears the last night as I was saddened by ending my stay at the Windjammer, but it was certainly special.

On the final morning after breakfast, as we pulled out of the driveway to depart, Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Tasha and Jabon stood and waved and watched us leave. I actually cried.

I will definitely be returning to the Windjammer in the near future.

Nicole, is very professional and prompt in her responses to emails.

THE WINDJAMMER IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY US!

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Windjammer could not have been more perfect - everything from the weather, the view, to the sound of the frogs and the waves at night. One of, if not the best, things about Jamaica are the people and the staff at Windjammer was no exception. From the first moment of arrival to our last sad farewell, they made us feel welcome and special. They were always looking for ways to make sure all of our wishes were attended to, from booking arrangements, to suggesting outings, teaching us to play dominoes, and making us laugh. The food was exceptional; all prepared with the freshest of ingredients and the pride that makes Jamaica. The website photos really do accurately portray the beauty of the accomodations. The grounds and the house were always clean and very well maintained. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to enjoy Jamaica outside of a resort setting - pamper yourself! Having a staff to prepare food and keep things in order can't be overstated! The owner was very helpful in answering questions before our trip as well - we can't thank you all enough for providing us with a vacation that will live in our memories and hearts forever.

wow...such an amazing trip!!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how amazing our trip was....we were overwhelmed with the location, amenities and staff!!!

On the location....
We can not tell you how much we loved looking out and having our own personal ocean...lol. It was amazing to be able to snorkle right in front of our place. The trip into Ocho was easy and quick and we even walked the 1/2 block to the neighborhood store finding what we needed.

On the ameneties....
wow...4 king bedrooms each with it's own bathroom, all so clean and well appointed. The living area was a perfect size and we had some great card games at the diningroom table. We also loved the outdoor areas and especially loved the outdoor bar!! The pool was so great, especially for our daughter Rainley she loved swiming in it every day!!

On the staff...
I read before I went that the best part of the villa experience is the staff and that couldn't be more correct. Tasha was so freakin funny and just did so much for us including accompanying Danny and Christine to the doctor's office and taking Rainley and I shopping! AND Miss Jennifer really ran a tight ship (I told her that I was going to leave my daughter Rainley with her to get Jennifer to whip her into shape...lol) and man can she cook....we felt like we were getting a 5 star meals every day!! And we loved having Johvan showing us the snorkeling and taking care of everything outside for us!! They were incredible people and we would love to go back just to see them!!!

Thanks Nicole for having us into the Allen family retreat....and it really did feel like a family place!

My family and I had a wonderful time at Windjammer. Swimming and snorkling in the sea everyday was heaven.
The staff treated us like royalty,and every meal was 5 star.
The plantation visit was great, but swimming with the dolphins,in Ochi,was the thrill of a lifetime.
I'm dreaming of vacationing there again,it was fantastic.

Vacation of a life time!! Right from the start. Our greeting at the Windjammer was amazing. Totally took me by surprise. The villa itself was beautiful and the staff were so nice and they prepared wonderful meals daily. I learned how to snorkel right there at the villa. Very convenient. I loved it. Great way to start the day. Other memories include swimming with the dolphins, climbling Dunn River Falls and touring the plantation.I would visit again in a heartbeat! Thank you for the experience.
