Hammocks come with small mattress, pillow and mosquito net, with a secure shared luggage lock up, bench and shelves. Sleeping bag liner and blanket can be rented for a small returnable deposit. You are advised to bring a flash light as the Cabana garden is lit communally but the Cabanas are not.

My licensed ‘One 4 the Road’ Honesty Bar and Cafe’ is open 24/7’s where you can purchase beers, spirits, mixers, sodas, water, juices, tea, coffee, biscuits, chips, small food items to cook, lighters, rolling tobacco, papers and much more. In busy times freshly baked cakes and locals fruits are available to buy too.

Country and Pretty - the Judy House Cottages & Rooms are located just a 10 minute walk from the Caribbean Sea up Westland Mountain Road, in Negril, Jamaica. It’s a great location, set in a friendly local ‘mixed’ community which gives you a very special taste of authentic Jamaican living. A few shops and small local bars are to be found in the neighbourhood before you reach the sea. On the local sea front there are lots of local affordable places to eat, drink, hangout by the sea or chat to locals.

At the back of the stunning Judy House property are 5 simple but cozy rooms designed specifically for backpackers - people of all ages that are travelling the World, the Caribbean or just Jamaica.

The Backpacker Rooms and Cabanas have use of shared (and fully dedicated) outside bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens and wet weather gazebos. There is a dining area close to the main shared kitchen with outdoor food preparation and dishwashing space. There are sinks to do your own laundry or use the one site service provided by my 2 Housekeepers who you can pay directly to wash for you.

Rooms and Cabanas overlook the beautiful rock and hammock gardens; Jamaican bushland; the moon and stars; plus the Caribbean Sea in the distance. There is a large terraced sun deck with roofed cabana: wifi; table; benches and chairs; sun loungers; outdoor baths and shower.

The Cottages have cable TV (with music channels too), wifi, hairdryer, iron, storage, safe-box, Jamaica made pictures and rugs to give you a real cosy, ‘home from home’ feeling to the cottages. Kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need to cook, juice fruits or just make coffee, tea etc.

Both Cottages nestle privately in the ¼ acre property in front of the main house, providing you with the utmost seclusion while still feeling secure. You will feel comfortable and at home with all the modern amenities.The lush gardens that surround the cottages are truly stunning. You can glimpse the sea from parts of the back garden.

Just minutes from, restaurants, bars, shows, parties, supermarkets, gift shops, banks and of course Negril’s famous cliffs and 7 mile white sand beach are at your convenience. Everything is just a walk or a short local route or charter taxi away. Make the Judy House Cottages & Rooms your home away from home in Negril!

I welcome you to explore and enjoy the foliage and shared amenities throughout the property. Sue McKenzie - Owner/Manager

Latest Review

" This is an absolutely lovely place to stay-- we stayed in hammocks but the rooms looked nice! The property is beautiful. However, it is quite a ways outside Negril and for similar prices (at least for the cabins) you can literally get something on the beach. But there is nothing better than a backpacker/hostel culture!
