OUR FAVOURITE PLACE
Just Back from Yepton for the 3rd Time. Best place to stay in Antigua for a relaxing stay. Great Relaxing Holiday. Good base for getting around this lovely island. Great Hosts Gabriela And Douglas can’t do enough for you. Immaculately Clean. Nice beach just a short walk away. Our favourite place .

YEPTON ESTATE COTTAGES, FIVE STAR ALL THE WAYGuest comment entered by owner
YEPTON ESTATE COTTAGES, FIVE STAR ALL THE WAY
You could not pick a better place to stay at to see the real Island of Antigua...Five star service, spotlessly clean and tasteful bungalows with full kitchens, dining area, bedroom, air conditioning, wrap around porch, view of the lake and the beach beyond, barbeque and a hammock swinging on your very own porch. Gabriella and Douglas pay attention to every single detail and will rent you a vehicle, give instructions, give you a cell phone to use in case you get lost. I cannot go on enough about this gem on the island. This couple and their estate cottages are real ambassadors of the island. If you want a taste of Antigua and want some peace and natural surroundings this is the place. Five star hotels are over rated as far as I am concerned....this was the best experience we have had and just so comfortable. Plan your day trips with the help of Douglas....and Gabriella is there for any little thing you may need....it's win win all the way! If you want reservations they know where the best places are and will arrange that personally. Getting married....they do weddings too. Family get together, celebrations such as honeymoons, anniversaries...they do those too. Unbelievable service from lovely people. Gabriella will take you grocery shopping to acquaint you with the stores...and Douglas is so informative about every little detail of the island including how to drive down the main street to not get stuck in any traffic.....the whole vacation was a breeze. We travel regularly......I never had less to do than when we came upon this location. They even have a cell phone that belongs to the cottages you can take with you until you find your way around......which is pretty simple to navigate. Just a wonderful place! I expected this island to be similar to the other Caribbean islands but it is not...pure natural beauty and not at all commercial! We woke up every morning to coffee on the porch watching the lake and all it's beautiful birds...pelicans crash landing in the water....hummingbirds, yellow birds and tiny lizards....like being on Gilligan’s island! Then off in the car for your day trips...or one of the 365 totally unspoiled beaches....if your snorkel or dive take your gear and your under water cameras......you will find a beach you can snorkel at or Gabriella or Douglas will find you a boat that is going to the wrecks or coral reefs....Zip lining through the rainforest, they have that too....the list is so long I could go on and on but your first step is t

PERFECT SELF-CATERING COTTAGEGuest comment entered by owner
PERFECT SELF-CATERING COTTAGE
We are a young couple who went for our honeymoon. Gabriela and Douglas the owners really made the experience. They are very professional and courteous helping out guests in any way possible with tips about the island. Our plane arrived late due to weather and they offered us a free frozen pizza and Coca-cola the first night of our stay because we were tired from traveling. They also gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our new marriage, and then took us to the grocery store the next day and supplied shopping tips and tips about exploring the island. The inside of the cottages are very clean and well furnished. Gabriela and Douglas obviously take pride in keeping all of the amenities in prime condition. The outside of the cottages are beginning to show some weather wear, and the mosquitoes and biting flies in the evenings prevented us from enjoying the outside as much as we could have, but the setting is truly beautiful. The pictures are accurate that there are lovely flowering bushes all around the property that are in constant bloom and there are many varieties of birds that come and visit the flowers including a beautiful hummingbird we once saw. The beach is a short, five minute walk through the Coconut Beach Resort. Beach towels are supplied along with beach chairs and a cooler to pack drinks or lunch. Gabriela and Douglas helped us arrange renting a car and we had fun exploring the island. This is an excellent base for anyone who does not want an all-inclusive resort, and is instead looking for a way to learn more about the island as a whole.

DELIGHTFULGuest comment entered by owner
It is always hard to convince others how good it really is! Yepton Estate Cottages have now been open for 6 years, we know as this was our seventh stay there. To celebrate Gabriela put us in the brand new #3 Cottage, wheelchair accessible which Douglas was bound & determined to accomplish. Spacious & exceeding well laid out, this cottage adds to the charm of the Yepton Cottages now numbering six, two studios, three one-bedrooms, one extra space. This can be used as a second bedroom or stand alone single. The cottages form an arc looking out over a brackish lagoon separated from the ocean by a sand beach. The lagoon teems with birds & fish, pelicans, egrets, whistling ducks, moor hens, frigate birds, above and tarpon & others below. The tropical breezes come down the valley behind the cottages or in from the sea making sitting out very comfortable. Gabie & Douglas always go out of their way to be sure their guests have all their questions answered, their reservations made, their excursions planned. We get asked why to we keep going back to Antigua, we still find new places to visit or old to revisit, a beach, a restaurant, a church, a fort, a craftsperson; we also find the people of Antigua very friendly; we have a delightful place to stay, run by Gabriela & Douglas wonderful people!

PERFECT SPOT FOR A HONEYMOONGuest comment entered by owner
PERFECT SPOT FOR A HONEYMOON
Just had a wonderful 10 days in Antigua staying at Yepton. The cottages are in a lovely spot next to a lake and five minutes walk from two beautiful beaches. Gabriela and Douglas gave us a very warm welcome, driving us to the supermarket, showing us all the best places to visit...even arranging a hire car for us. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who wants a good base for touring the island and a bit of peace and quiet. Our cottage had everything we needed, including a hammock and a barbeque. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer!

NOT ONCE NOT TWICE, THIRD TIME & PLANNING FOURTH
Each visit gives us a wonderful opportunity to just completely chill in a warm and welcoming environment and totally enjoy the ambience and kind and individual attention we receive from Gabrielle and Douglas we can't thank you enough this is the place to go if you need a tonic and to recharge your batteries then you can't go to a better place.

AMAZING PLACE TO STAY FOR US FIRST TIMERS!Guest comment entered by owner
AMAZING PLACE TO STAY FOR US FIRST TIMERS!
We had heard many great things/reviews about Yepton, and we were happy to find they were all so true! The estates were lovely and the owners were great. Gabby & Douglas (owners) made our first trip to Antigua an amazing one! Upon arrival we were taken to the supermarket, and shown around town a bit. This was very helpful and much appreciated! Douglas also went over the map with us, told us about all the great beaches and recommended sights and restaurants. We did not feel overwhelmed with deciding where to go and what to do because we were so well informed about Antigua after getting the low-down from the owners. The cottage itself was great! We were on our honeymoon but looking for something that would allow us to be us vs an all inclusive resort, which isn't our thing. It was perfect. We could cook in the well equipped kitchen (it had everything we needed), grill and hang out on the large porch or hammock. It feels like you have your own little house on an island! :-) We had a great trip and experience staying at Yepton, we would highly recommend it!

AMAZING COTTAGE AND HEARTY WELCOME
After reading numerous oustanding comments on tripadvisor we decided to go to Yepton Cottages for our holidays.This was such a good choice, we didn' regret it one second.We loved it and would definitely recommend it. The cottages are even better than our high expectations...There is just everything! And don't get me started on the kitchen. Nothing is missing, even things you were not expecting and that are very useful and convenient. Finally, Gabriela and Douglas are " Stars!". They are very nice and here to help. Gabriela brought us to the best Supermarket on Antigua and Douglas kindly showed us all the places, restaurants and beaches to go to! So one advice, go,go,go!!!

FANTASTIC TIME AT YEPTON ESTATE COTTAGESGuest comment entered by owner
FANTASTIC TIME AT YEPTON ESTATE COTTAGES
Just returned from two wonderful weeks at Yepton Estate Cottages. (Feb. 22 - March 9, 2013.) We were overwhelmed with the hospitality that Gabbie and Doug showed us. They went out of their way to make sure our vacation was one to be remembered. Doug's knowledge of the island helped us find with ease the best beaches, resturants and places of interest. A rental car is a must if you want to explore this beautiful Island. Gabbie's attention to detail provided 5 star accomodations. The cottages and grounds are top notch with all the amenities you would expect at a five star resort. If you are planning a trip to antigua we would highly recommend making Yepton Estate Cottages your home away from home.

EXCELLENT HOSTS,CLEAN,WELL EQUIPPED, COMFORTABLE
Lovely individual and peaceful cottages which were clean, very well equipped and comfortable. What really made the stay special was the outstanding way the owners went out of their way to enhance our holiday with advice on beaches, restaurants, routes etc. Nothing seemed too much trouble and when I left my cash and credit cards in the safe Douglas brought them to the airport - a not inconsiderable task. They say that they try to treat their guests as they would like to be treated themselves. They clearly like to be treated well
