I had a fun trip. I booked a 6 week stay here, but I ended up leaving after 4 weeks. It's a beautiful place, of course. The views were to die for, as expected. I went during the hottest month of the year (July) so of course the mosquitoes were insane. Probably had over a hundred …

Greetings Kate, thanks for taking the time to deliver a very considered and well thought out commentary on your stay. In addition, we hope that your stay at Cedar Ridge provided you with the space and sanctuary to assist you to recover from not just the illnesses manifesting in the colds and flu, but the personal mental and physical stress that you were experiencing in your life - before you came and that you were able to readjust on your premature return. Life on the tropics, in fact, life in the middle of a community can be difficult for inexperienced travelers and very different from the regular daily experiences living in relative comfort and convenience of the US. It is important that travelers understand that there may be the presence of 'wildlife' in the form of mosquitoes and lizards, dogs and chickens and weekend loud-music from the community so it was good to mention these. Cedar Ridge is proud to be a community establishment - located just outside of the town but close enough for people who want to walk. We give thanks for our taxi drivers who know and understand our travelers who assist in giving them a safe haven in the midst of city living. I am so sorry that I had to travel out for the last two weeks of your stay and was not there to drive you around as usual (without cost to you), or to take you to the airport, however, I am sure that Lisa and Ms Madge or the security company that we retain on-call - and the others were able to ensure that you had a safe and comfortable journey. I am sorry too, that it seems that you finally gave in to pressure from home - to return, but, that is not unusual - 6 weeks is a long time to be located in one City without a secure income or it being a career choice. We really hope that your time with us, assisted you to understand how cultures and communities live, it was unfortunate that you did not travel to see the beauty of the rest of the island or participate in the festivals or activities on offer over the summer, in other locations, but perhaps another time. In Jamaica we say "Walk Good" to wish our travelers well. Walk Good Katie.

No amount of words can capture how much I loved staying with Arlene. Her home and her hospitality went above and beyond anything I could've asked for, and she truly shaped my trip into an adventure I'll never forget. For an entire month, I had a room from her, and I truly cannot …

Arlene is a wonderful hostess. She took care of me like a mother. She is very keen to advise the guests in all matters. The house is very large and offers plenty of space. The highlights for me were the free- concert in Kingston, the visit to the Rasta Village in Mobay and the vi…

Great host! Miss Marge who's always there was my Jamaican mama. A real kind lady. It is a very safe place to stay and the view is amazing. The pictures don't do the real view any justice. I stayed for 5 weeks and had a great time.

Cedar Ridge is a very beautiful property that is located on a hill. It has an amazing view over the bay. Arlene is a very kind host and she provides all kinds of information to help you tour the town, which is very helpful for first time Jamaica visitors. However, there is no hot…

Thank you so much for your comments Dave, really appreciate your compliments and will take into account the note about the hot water, this can be either positive or negative for us as some people like the cold and others not. However, we do have hot water its, just that its solar and so at night and early mornings it can be difficult for those of us who love hot water...Walk good on your journeys

Cedar Ridge is a family home converted into a hostel, (everyone grown up and moved away so now we have space!). The house nevertheless, if always full of young people passing through and sharing their lives, experiences and perspectives with guests - its usually quiet, but never…
