My girlfriend and I stayed in the Judy house cabin, which looks even better in real life than in the pictures here and were absolutely delighted that we did! Sue is a fantastic host. She really makes you feel at home and wants you to have a good stay. Highly recommend staying here if you want a unique experience in Negril and a place to call home. - Young couple from Germany

Great review, thanks, so pleased you loved the garden, it gets better al the time & I just finished the rock garden extension which is going to be a wonderful extra space to relax, light fires, cook, even camp etc. One Love

I've been staying at Judy's House with 2 friends in a cottage, its just the best experience! you got everything you need and even more! Sue is also the best. She will make your stay unforgettable, she knows the best places to go, and is a very entertaining woman ;)
We definitely appreciated the bathroom, because sometimes in Jamaica water is scarce, but if you use it accordingly its good. the kitchen had everything we needed. The bed were comfortable. The front porch is awesome to sit in the evening.
I recommend that if you stay at the Judy House, you try dinner and jamaican breakfast down Sue's driveway. and play some dominoes with the guys who hang out there!

Room Tip: any room / cottage!

Sue is so friendly and very willing to help make your trip amazing. She will help you set up tours, find good places to eat or anything else you might need. She has done a wonderful job with the gardens that surround the hostel. It is a great place to relax.

Room Tip: If you plan to spend time in your room go with a cottage. The back packer rooms are great if you pal...

I was at Judy house for a few nights beginning of march and Sue was a great hostess, she made the stay exciting, entertaining, and (gasp!) educational! Negril was my first stop backpacking as a single female in Jamaica and Judy house was a great transitional place to local island life vs. the tourist hustle you can get in a place like Negril...the property is gorgeous and easy access to anything you need, plus free wifi which is awesome. Sue also was very understanding about a debit card issue I was having, which was kind of embarrassing (but funny)

I am planning on visiting again, if you are more a backpacker type or just like to go a bit off the beaten trail this place is for you, enjoy!

Thanks Sue!! -Kelli from Kansas (new orleans) xoxo

The first backpacking experience is always an important one, as is your first trip and place to stay in Jamaica. I really enjoy trying to provide the best guidance for whatever people are looking for during their stay with me. So glad it was positive for you & looking forward to your next stay with me to listen to tales of your other adventures! One Love

Exceptional place. Up from the main road a bit so it is a lot more laid back than being at a beach front. The locals around are inviting and not trying to hustle you for everything. Sue is great and has a story for every occasion. She even let me and my two smelly friends stay in her place and listen to her records when our room wasn't quite ready and made us coffee in the morning. Service! Room was great and clean once we got moved in and had every appliance you could want. Will definitely come back again. Without doubt. 5-10 minute walk right down to the beach and whatever you need. Special place. Very special place.

The Judy House Cottages property began life in December 2008 and finished construction in 2012.

The cosy, wooden cottages have verandas, private patios, hammocks, safes, cable TV, wifi, kitchen equipment and everything you should need to make your cottage your home whilst in Jamaica!

Set in a real local, friendly community giving you the chance to experience the real Jamaica, with shops & bar close by and Mary's Bay Beach on the One Love Drive right at the end of my road. Quiet, with a real country feel, but with all the beach, restaurants, bars and other tourist facilities just a walk away. Sue can also organize airport shuttles, tours, scooter rentals and is a very valuable tourist information resource herself too! ... more   less
