We would go back tomorrow!Posted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: Secluded, quiet and peaceful. Super well equipped cottages, walking distance to lovely beaches and the BBQ was the icing on the cake for us!
Location: Doug's virtual tour of the island told us everything we needed to know! Especially some great eating places in amazing locations!!
Fantastic place, fantastic hosts and an all round fantastic holiday experience, definitely to be recommended!! The glowing reviews attracted us to this place and we were sooo pleased when they all turned out to be well founded. Gabriella and Doug's friendly and relaxed but at the same time very efficient help in organising our trip was invaluable and definitely helped us get the best out of our holiday! I've already been recommending this place to all my friends!

Yepton estates, the perfect place in AntiguaPosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: Privacy, location, BEST HOSTS EVER!
Cons: Screening in the porches would be nice
Location: Gaby and Douglas give you a great map, complete with their favorite spots marked and advice about getting around. Beach, restaurants, water, and sun..
From the moment we contacted Gabrielle and Douglas of Yepton Estates we felt completely at ease. They take care of every detail of your stay in Antigua, offering as much advice or privacy that you request. It is the perfect getaway for a couple or a few friends. We were grateful for the peace,privacy, and well equipped cottage. While a self catered cottage is not for everyone (it wouldn't have worked if our 4 kids had been with us) we found everything we needed. I can't say enough about this place, but many thanks to Gaby and Douglas for giving us a vacation to love.

Amazing holidayPosted Jul 7, 2013
We had a great holiday. It was a very relaxing, peaceful and an interesting location. Close to two beaches. The owners were very helpful and approachable, they arranged car hire, activities and gave good advice on what to do and see. We would definitely go back. The cottages were fully equipped with everything we needed.

Fantastic all round holidayPosted Jun 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Fabulous. Beautiful location, everything you need for self catering in lovely cottage on pretty, unspoilt nature reserve near to gorgeous beaches. First class very friendly personal service from proprietors. Car or taxi was needed for getting around island, eating out and shopping although proprietors took us to well stocked supermarket and offered to pick up groceries and lovely meals out at neighbour hotel. Hospitality and comfort exceeded expectations.

Yepton Estate Cottages, PERFECTION!Posted May 20, 2013
Pros: Friendly welcoming hosts. Not dealing with a busy hotel! Use a Yepton cell phone if you need directions or get lost.
Cons: there were no least favorite things...it was all good!
Location: The location is quiet and private but steps to the beach. Use the pool if you prefer. A rental car is a must so you can see the whole island!
Visiting Antigua . We travel all over the world several times a year so we are pretty savvy to what is available. In all our years of travel Yepton Estate Cottages were the absolute best!!! You will find no better! The cottages are spacious, well kept, one bedroom bungalows spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Fully equipped kitchens with better appliances than I have at home. Full size stove and fridge, dining table, sofa, television, air conditioning, wrap around porch, hammock if you please, view of the lake, nature at your door, tiny lizards and birds fly to your porch for a look see, viewing the pelicans, egrets, ducks , mongoose right from the comfort of your dining table on the porch complete with barbeque. The island is easy to get around.....the Antiguan people are very easy going and pleasant though a tad shy. The owners of this establishment, Gabriella and Douglas could not do more for their guests including driving us to the grocery store, which is fabulously stocked....and giving us all the information we needed to get around ourselves in the rented car that they had delivered for us and picked up. Unbelievable service is what you get!!!! Any question or need you have is attended to! This couple is so well suited to the hospitality industry and are so gracious and helpful they have not let one detail slide. They truly want you to have a good time and enjoy not only Antigua but there Estate Cottages. Total Ambassadors of the Island.... Ya! Merci Beaucoup!

Quaint Caribbean cottages and wonderful hostsPosted Feb 3, 2013
Pros: Gabriela and Douglas are knowledgeable, kind and helpful hosts.
Location: Location is convenient to downtown St. John's, as well as roads to the rest of the island.
Since we hate boring all-inclusives and love trying local eats, as well as exploring different beaches, Yepton was perfect for us. These quaint little Caribbean cottages have fully stocked kitchens (tupperware, pots and pans, bottle and can openers, you name it!) plus lawn chairs and ice chests and beach towels, etc. They also have comfy beds, plenty of storage and seating, a great shower and a wonderful porch with a giant bbq grill. There is a pool and a wonderful hammock under a big shady tree outside as well. We really loved the eco friendly aspect (solar power, conservation) of the cottages as well. We woke up everyday, ate breakfast in our sweet little cottage, packed a picnic lunch and headed for different beaches. At night we tried different delicious restaurants we had read about and/or heard about from Gabriela and Douglas. G & D are the best hosts ever! So friendly and knowledgeable and helpful. Douglas can explain how to get anywhere on the island, and Gabriela helped us with dinner recommendations and reservations. They both had interesting stories about the island to offer as well. Driving is definitely challenging in Antigua due to the lack of signage and road names, but it is an adventure exploring and the scenery is beautiful. If you are looking for a non-resort type vacation, look no farther. You can't go wrong with Yepton Estate Cottages and are guaranteed to enjoy Antigua and meeting your hosts Gabriela and Douglas!

Most relaxing vacation everPosted Jan 9, 2013
Pros: Our hosts, Gaby and Doug Luery.
Cons: Long ride to the airport.
The Luerys were excellent hosts. Whatever you need for your vacation, they can help you take care of the details so that you enjoy yourself. While I had originally planned on renting a car and exploring the island, I wound up going to the beach and lazing in the hammock instead. The location is perfect for that. I had trouble thinking of a name for this review; I also considered "Getting away from it all."

Our xmas honeymoon in AntiguaPosted Jan 7, 2013
Pros: The peace and quiet and solitude.
Cons: The matress was a bit firmer than what we are used to.
Location: Somewhat remote from stores and shopping but just a few minuites walk to a nice beach. Rented a car which was vital and quite an adventure in itself.
The Yepton was a fantastic surprise upon our arrival. It contained everything necessary to make it a home away from home. Our hosts Gabby and Douglas were so helpfull with everything. They really helped in making our first Antigua holiday comfortable. Their tips and knowledge they shared about traveling around the island, places to eat, beaches was invaluable. We liked that it was a nice ,quiet and peaceful location. The only noise was coming from the local tree frogs.
