Quaint Antiguan CottagesPosted May 10, 2015
Nice, peaceful stay. Beautiful beach within 5 minute walk---pleasant pond on the property with a variety of bird visitors. Wonderful hosts (owners), who reside on the property. They took us to a supermarket our first day and had great recommendations for restaurants. Although the location was off the beaten track, you could participate in day excursions or get your own car and explore the island. There are a ton of beautiful beaches to explore. A real Antiguan experience!

Fantastic Honeymoon in Paadise!!Posted Apr 25, 2015
Pros: Peaceful location and perfect hosts.
Cons: Absolutely nothing
Location: Peaceful and romantic. Car hire is a must if you want to explore the island.
From the very moment we arrived Gabriela and Douglas made us both feel at home. Arranging car hire and giving advice on places to visit and eat etc their personal touch just added to our experience. Forget about all inclusive deals, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind in a truely romantic location.

Lovely setting and very quietPosted Apr 24, 2015
Cons: More air con in main room would be lovely
Location: Quiet but that was what we liked. Villas look across a saltwater lake with many wild birds.
The villas are lovely but did get very hot particularly at night. The owners Gabriel and Douglas are very helpful with ideas of where to visit.

Caribbean CottagesPosted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Peace and quiet. Doug and Gabby are like old friends. Helpful and knowledgeable, they will take the time to explain everything you need to know.
Cons: The location is a bit isolated. That's the nature of the island, with it's many peninsulas and bays but that means hiring taxis or renting a car.
Location: Yepton Estates is on the Caribbean side of Antigua, close to two beaches and historic Fort Barrington. It's a 10 minute drive to St. John's.
For Canadians and Americans accustomed to renting a summer cottage by the lake, Yepton Estates will be very familiar and comforting. The owners (and hosts), Doug and Gabby, have created a cosy oasis away from the tourist crowds, where you can hang out on your cottage deck and watch the multitude of birds that make the adjacent lagoon home. You also get a front-row view of the massive cruise ships - Doug calls them "accomodation barges" - as they silently glide past on their way to St. John's harbour. As others have noted, the cottages are clean and comfortable with fully equipped kitchens. We ate all our breakfasts "at home", and brought home dinner several times. On arrival, Gabby will take you to the 'Epicurean' supermarket, where there is a full selection of British and American goods (including prepared meals), at prices that are 20-30 percent above what you pay at home. This is NOT a beach resort but Yepton Beach is only a three minute walk away, while the spectacular (and empty) Deep Bay Beach is a 10-minute walk. However, there is not much else to see in the immediate vicinity, so you will need to rent a car for a few days at least to check out some of the island's other beaches, historical sights, and fine restaurants. We liked Ffryes Beach because it attracts local Antiguan families for picnics. You might even be asked to join a game of "beach cricket"! And on the Atlantic side, Half Moon Bay is the epitome of a tropical ocean beach.

Excellent experience!Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: The friendliness of the owners; the simplicity of the cottage; the peacefulness felt while there.
Cons: Nothing, it was all perfect.
Location: Gabbie and Douglas informed us of the nearby beaches and places to dine and shop.
My husband and I were guests at Yepton Estate Cottages in February and LOVED our time in Antigua, mostly because of the kindness of Gabbie and Douglas. We got lost getting to the cottages on our first day, but once we found it they greeted us as if their own family had been lost. The hospitality they offered cannot be compared with that of any hotel or resort we have ever stayed. Their knowledge of the island and suggestions of great places to eat and visit allowed us to make the best use of our short time on the island. The accommodations were perfect and we had everything we needed. We highly recommend Yepton Estate Cottages to all visiting Antigua.

A perfect peaceful location with kind hosts.Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: The bird watching- pelicans, frigate birds, herons, finches, hummingbirds-fantastic!
Cons: Nothing comes to mind...
Location: Close to St John's. Antigua is so small that with a hire car, we easily saw everything we wanted to.
We had a lovely stay. The island's beaches are fabulous, the scenery wonderful and the Luerys did all they possibly could to make us welcome.

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Pros: The beautiful setting and the excellent service from the hosts.
We stayed at Yepton Estate Cottages for part of our honeymoon and we loved it here. Our hosts were really helpful - they took us to the supermarket on the first day to stock up on food, showed us around St Johns, arranged a hire car and gave lots of advice for places to visit. The setting around the cottages and the lagoon is beautiful and teeming with wildlife. The cottages were comfortable and well-equipped. There are gas BBQ's outside on the veranda. The area is very quiet and relaxing. It is possible to eat in the local hotel restaurant if you don't want to cook and there are two good beaches in walking distance. A hire car is recommended for getting around however. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come here again.

Best Hosts on the IslandPosted Feb 6, 2015 on Hotels.com
The cottage was in excellent condition, nicely furnished and thoughtfully complete to meet your needs. The view of the lagoon from the cottage porch was like a scene from a TV commercial. Very peaceful and we spent hours on the porch just relaxing. A very nice ocean beach was only a 6 or 7 minute walk away. The most pleasant surprise was our hosts Gabriella and Douglas. Very gracious and helpful! They took us to the grocery store, arranged a rental car, recovered lost items from the taxi company and spent over three hours explaining the best places to dine, the nicest beaches on the island and the best places to see including maps and detailed directions. Great people who we hope to see again!

Beautiful locationPosted Jan 25, 2015
Pros: Well appointed cottages in a beautiful setting
Location: Located about 3 miles from the capitol St. John's. The nearest beach is only a 5 minute walk away and everything is easy to reach if you hire a car.
We were greeted by Gabriela and Douglas when we arrived and made to feel at home straight away. After checking in Gabriela took us to the supermarket to get provisions and helped us to find what we wanted.Throughout our stay they both made sure we had everything we needed and more. The cottage was nicely furnished and well equipped with everything you need. It was cleaned and towels replenished every 3 or 4 days. The location is beautiful, set next to a salt water lagoon with Pelicans, Herons and other water birds. Other little birds come to the veranda to be fed each day and are very tame. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk away. I cannot fault this lovely place and Gabriela and Douglas are fabulous hosts from start to finish.
