                          Yepton Estate Cottage is located on the North-NorthWest corner of the island, directly on a natural salt lagoon off the Caribbean Sea.

                          Other Activities: Catamaran cruises, island tours, off-island trips and much more

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: Douglas, born and educated in the UK, put his engineering skills to work and built the cottages. He loves old trains and maps and shares his extensive knowledge of Antigua with the guests. Gabriela hails from Austria, doubles as the Austrian Consul to Antigua and shares her time between running the business, looking after the guests and, whenever the mood strikes, being an artist.

                          Why the Owner Chose Five Islands:
                          Within a 5-minute walk to the nearest sand beach by the Caribbean Sea, Yepton Estate Cottages is ideally located in a tropical garden on a salt lake with lots of bird life. It is so peaceful that just swinging in your hammock, reading or watching the wild life, will replenish your soul.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Having managed a resort in Antigua for many years, we wanted to create something 'different and better' for the self-catering market. We did not just want to put the key to the property in your hand on arrival and leave you to your own devices. We are here, we are accessible and we will assist with whatever we can to make your holiday a true memory - all while preserving your privacy.
