Interaction with guests
Our aim is to assist Judy House guests in having a very positive Jamaican experience from the moment we receive your booking. We can help you with an affordable airport shuttle, right to my gate, or assist you with information on other cheaper modes of transport.
We can arrange drivers and tours; give you information on places to go and things to do; we know the best places to eat, from breakfast to dinner or even late night snacks; best beaches and cliff experiences; beach parties and other evening entertainment.
Martel, our night security guard is also great chef available to cook for you with notice.
Me and all the Judy House staff are committed to making your stay in Jamaica the best we can. A guest book is available with our recommendations and tips, plus we are always happy to answer questions and I am willing to help you plan what to do, during your stay.
Other things to note
The Judy House is about experiencing the 'real' Jamaica. We provide 24 hour security with myself and Martel who are government trained and registered security guards.
Set in a very friendly, local, safe community only minutes from our local Mary's Bay Beach with the wonderful 'Canoe Beach Bar' on one side and Negril's only 'German Bar' on the other side.

Most supermarkets, banks, Cambios, restaurants are within walking distance too.
The 'One 4 the Road Honesty Bar' is provided for guests to purchase drinks and snacks 24 hours a day with a 'check the price', 'write what you take down' and 'pay later' honor system.
