Located on the South Coast of Jamaica, Boiler Beach House is the ultimate destination for the traveler seeking tranquility in a thoroughly Jamaican environment. Unspoilt by Tourism, the Fishing Village of Alligator Pond was initially inhabited by Jamaica's earliest settlers, the Taino Indians. Pottery shards are still available in the many middens in the area, and the property was named Boiler because the sea "boils" where an underground river is located in the sea in front of the house.
Manatees can regularly be seen at this spot where they come to enjoy the fresh water supply. The house has been owned by the same family for generations and was the family's "Bathing Cottage" for the Cattle property once established there. The original wooden cottage is close to 200 years old and has evolved as a unique representation of Jamaican architecture of its time. The Swimming Pool is fed by underground springs emanating from the Limestone hills of Manchester and is cold, refreshing and entirely free from chemicals.
Accommodations are presented as three two-bedroom suites with their own bathroom and entirely private from each other, and Guests enjoy the constant Sea and Land Breezes under a large Thatched area overlooking the ocean. The Staff at "Boiler", Mr & Mrs Stephen (Jolly) Willliams have been with the family for over forty years.

Alligator Pond is a Fishing Village on the Southwestern Coast of Jamaica in the Parish of Manchester. Unlike the Tourist-Oriented Coasts in the Northern Part of the Country, Alligator Pond's Shoreline is as Much About Work as Play, Where Fishermen Launch Their Boats to Catch Some of the Island's Best-Regarded Fish While Women Conduct the Wholesale Business of the Catch. Weather-Worn Cookshops and Bars Line the Sand's Edge, Supplying Food Staples Such as Curried Goat and Red Stripe Beer. Alligator Pond Lies at the Foot of the Don Figero Mountains to the North East, Some 35 Km from Mandeville, the Parish Capital. the Name is Said by Locals to Derive from the Shape of the Mountain Range, Which Viewed from the Beach, Has Bumps Which Suggest an Alligator's Back. the Beautiful Spring Called Guts River (15 Mins East of Villa) is Located Just Before the Protected Marine Park Alligator Hole, Where Manatees Can Be Viewed in the Crystal Clear Lagoons of the Swamps....morecollapse
