“West End Gem”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I was in Negril for a week. Sue is a gracious and friendly host who made me feel very welcome. The cottages are secluded in the hills but convenient to all the beaches, restaurants, and sights of Negril and the West End of Jamaica. Sue was very helpful in guiding me.

I was traveling alone but I felt like I immediately made friends with Sue and her guests, who were from all parts of the earth. It was a real pleasure. I would choose to stay here again and would suggest it to my friends.

Stayed December 2013, traveled solo

I stayed at Judy's for 3 nights in November and I loved it!
The place is really nice, with cottages scattered in a beautiful garden and with lots of common areas where you can relax and hang out with the other travellers.
Sue is a great host too, always up for a chat and for sharing her interesting life.
The place is in a very safe area with lots of eateries just a few minutes walking distance, and you can reach the 7 miles beach by taxi or by walking, which take around 30 mins.
Totally reccomend it!
Thanks Sue for everything!

I visited Negril again over Thanksgiving and stayed at Judy House again but this time in her hostel part. I had an absoulte wonderful time. The room was good. Had a fan and was big enough for no longer than one is in your room. The shared bathrooms were good and so was the shared kitchen. The backpackers who also visited while I was there were loads of fun. Everyone would sit outside at night and talk and drink. Even though these kids were probably younger than my youngest child they accepted me in the group and even would ask if I wanted to go on day trips with them. All ages seem to be accepted back in the hostel part. Browning, Sues dog was alot of company to. I cannot say enough nice things about this place. It gives you a real taste of Jamaican living because it is up in hill around the locals that live there. The gardens she has are beautiful and she has finished her outdoor hammock part that you can even stay in instead of a room if you want. If no one is staying there you can go down and lay in the hammocks and read or just take a nap. I highly recommend if you go to Negril to check out Judy House

Sorry I was not here for most of your trip, but I think it did not matter as I know you found the best of Jamaica yourself. Glad you had such a great time and giving thanks that Claire was a great assistant manager and she provided such a great service whilst I was visiting my son. Sounds like you had a blast! See you again in May hopefully. One Love ... Sue

Cottages and rooms in The West End Negril can Usually go for high prices . But , the Judy House is an Affordable , Safe Private Property In the West End of Negril . I have been there a few times,and at first , it was for the low prices of the rooms, but now it is for the atmosphere , the safety , the owner. It is a quiet little Garden Property owned by a very informative and Super Friendly Woman. She will help you with advise on where to eat and what to visit . I was just there in November ( low season ) with my father in law , and we shared one of the Cottages . It has its own Kitchen , bathroom , Bedroom , back yard and front porch . It was so perfect . It only cost us both for the whole week what I would have spent for two nights alone up the road . It is very clean , and there are snacks , and drinks to purchase if you run out . I recommend this place to anyone,single , couples , married ,it caters to us all . It is a 5 minute walk up the road from Negrils Beach and Bars ..( or 30 seconds by scooter ) . You can not get better for your money , not in Negril and I've been going to Negril for 28 years now . Try it , you won't be disappointed .

Room Tip: There are single little rooms with a fan,,,,,good for travelers alone , or if you are with a friend...

Great review, thanks once more for taking the time and producing some great guidance for people interested in staying here. I always love the mix of people, young people from 18 years old traveling the world alone, to over 70's on their 40th trip to Negril since the hippie days. You with your father in law (not always easy ha ha), great mother in law with a honeymoon couple, French film makers, an alto saxophone player, photographer, wedding guest, guitarist, photo journalist, flight attendants, flight cargo staff, artists, gardeners and this years some of my grandchildren for the 1st time. Look forward to seeing you next time and thanks once again for the review. One Love x

Our stay at the Judy House was just perfect. We came to Jamaika just to relax and chill and not doing all those touristy-kind-of-things - and the place worked out really great for us.
Sue is really helpful and organized in every way - she always has the right answers and we really appreciated her experience she shared with us regarding beautiful places to go, nice food (even if we mostly used the kitchen in the hostel or lived on fruits anyways...).
Negril is easy to get to - you can call a taxi right on the street for just a small amount of money at anytime. Even if you choose to walk to the big supermarket or to the 7mile beach in Negril, it's only like 20 min to walk.
At the Judy House you're not at all treated as a tourist, but as a friend as soon as you get there. The place has outdoor baths/showers (!!!) which are awesome, especially if it's really hot and humid outside.
If we come back to Jamaika (and we definitely will...) , we're gonna stay at the Judy House, for sure!

What a wonderful title, over the moon you had a just perfect stay here. Being in the garden is very relaxing, my favorite spot to be, especially in the hammock garden! So glad had the right answers for you, important for me to know what guests like so you get the best out of your stay, which you did, thanks!! I look forward to seeing you at the Judy House again one day my friends. Glad to be of service! One Love xx

The Judy House Cottages property began life in December 2008 and finished construction in 2012. At the front of property 2 pretty, cosy, private, self-catering cottages are surrounded by the most beautiful tropical garden, with flowers, fruits & vegetables in abundance. 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
