This was our first holiday for two years and our first time to Antigua. Our stay couldn't have been better! Yepton Estate Cottages are the perfect place to relax and enjoy the island. The cottages are extremely clean, comfortable, and tranquil, with a lovely lake framing the view. Two beaches are within walking distance, ideal for a morning swim! St John's is a short drive and the rest of the island can be easily explored by car or taxi. Gabriela and Douglas are the perfect hosts - they provided a warm welcome with a cold drink and trip to the supermarket when we arrived, and then a brilliant chat about the island and its many interesting places to visit on our first morning. This really helped us to make the most of our time in Antigua. They are both so helpful and make you feel extremely welcome. This is simply one of the very best places to stay in Antigua! Many thanks and best wishes to Gabriela and Douglas for a perfect stay.

We enjoyed a delightful 5 days in Antigua and the Yepton Estate. Busy during the day working on purchasing a sailboat & some sightseeing, we were so happy to have the cozy accommodations every evening. Our cottage had everything we needed, clean, and comfortable. Gabby and Douglas are gracious hosts and wonderful to spend time with over a glass of wine. They shared everything we needed to know to enjoy our time on the island. If you are looking for a relaxing get away, this is the perfect spot for you. It is away from the city and nightlife, so you can enjoy peaceful time at the pool and on the porch in the ideal weather and setting. Thanks to Gabby and Douglas for a lovely visit.

Our first trip to Antigua, and we were thrilled to find the Yepton for our four week stay. The fantastic reviews are all accurate. Douglas and Gabriela are phenomenal hosts and island historians. Cottage #1 was perfect with its view of the estuary pond and endless bird-watching opportunities. The cottage was very well equipped for our stay. We drove to different beaches and sites all over the island every day, and were always happy to arrive home at the Yepton each day. We highly recommend the Yepton to any couples or families looking for a secluded experience on a beautiful island filled with wonderful people.

We are returners - this is the third time since 2013 we have enjoyed staying at Gabriela and Douglas' little piece of heaven. We normally never go back to the same place, apart from Yepton. We stay in cottage number 6, which is very well located in front of lake. This year we stayed for 3 weeks and really managed to relax after not having traveled "properly" for the last 2 "pandemic" years. The property is located very close to one of the best beaches in Antigua - Deep Bay. Yepton Beach is nearer, but rougher. My wife "discovered" a turtle, (Tulip) the critically endangered Hawksbill turtle in the lake, and with the help of Douglas we managed to engage volunteers from EAG, and rescued Tulip from the very unsuitable environment that the lake offers. Tulip was dropped off at Deep Bay beach and swam away. We very much hope she has survived and enjoying swimming in the natural Caribbean sea. Yepton Estate Cottages is highly recommended.

As a seasoned traveller, the past two years of prohibitive travel restrictions and uncertainty have been challenging. For my first and much needed holiday I wanted to find somewhere which met two conditions: a quiet and self-contained accommodation, and access to uncrowded beaches with tropical waters. At Yepton Estate Cottages, I found this and so much more. Your hosts Gabriela and Douglas are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and could not do enough for me, whilst simultaneously ensuring I had the privacy and space that I was seeking. From the moment of my arrival, I was welcomed like family and Gabriela drove me personally to the nearest supermarket to help me stock up on provisions for my first few days. I was then free to enjoy the nearby beaches (the closest - Yepton Beach, is less than ten minutes on foot), and mostly to just enjoy the tranquility which I was craving after the toll of the Pandemic. My cottage had everything I could possibly need, and the deck overlooking the salt lake provided hours of watching the Brown Pelicans diving, or simply a space to enjoy the warmth and the breeze with some protection from the sun. Nothing is too much trouble for your hosts Gabriela and Douglas, or their charming housekeeper Sharon. After catching the rays a little too strongly at the start of my tirp, Gabriela even supplied me with some much needed After-Sun and additional SPF! I booked this location based on the fantastic reviews and the location. It surpassed my expectations, and was the most perfect escape from the reality of daily life during these strange times. If you like all-inclusive, being waited on, and being surround by other people, this is not for you! If you value your own slice of paradise, where the whole day is yours to while away at your own pace, with world class beaches just around the corner, then Gabriela and Douglas will take care of the rest for you! Thank you Gabi and Douglas and Sharon... I miss Yepton already.

We go to Antigua and to spend a week with Gabbie and Douglas at Yepton Estates Cottages every February. This year, Gabbie arranged for a rental car for us to seamlessly pick-up (and drop-off) at the airport upon our arrival. We love exploring this beautiful island paradise from our Yepton Cottages base. We will return, forever. Can't wait until our next trip.

We are just back from our second holiday in a Yepton cottage. Its very unusual to return to the same location twice and this is testament to the quality of what is on offer here. The hosts couldn't be more helpful, the scenery from your front porch is delightful (watch the massive cruise boats glide into St Johns on a morning and glide back out again each evening and feel sorry for the passengers!) and the accomodation contains everything you might need. For travel around the hosts happily arrange taxi's or a hire car (the one drawback is the absence of local bars / restaurants but you are less than 10 mins from St Johns). Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent a quiet, relaxing week in one of the larger cottages at Yepton. If you're looking for a serene, secluded getaway — away from all the crowds and hassle of the all-inclusives — then Yepton is a wonderful choice. The cottages are spacious and clean, with everything you need for a self-catered holiday. It looks out over a quiet lagoon, and the secluded Yepton Beach (which we usually had to ourselves) is a 5-minute walk away. Multiple other beaches are within a short drive, and Jolly Harbor is 20 minutes away. Our host Gabriela was supremely helpful and gracious. If you love the Caribbean, but don't love the mega-resorts, then Yepton is a lovely choice.

We arrived by taxi and Gabriela came out to meet me and my husband. She had everything ready for us and gave us a tour of our lovely cottage overlooking the lake. The grounds are beautiful and the cottage has a well equipped kitchen, a large bathroom,a bedroom, a sitting area with a tv and dvd, and a covered porch. This is a secluded place with no restaurants within walking distance so be prepared with groceries or have a vehicle. Thank goodness Gabriela was so kind to bring us to the supermarket that has everything. We stocked up on great eats and we were living in style! My favorite part of this location is that it is by two beaches: Deep Bay Beach and Yepton Beach. Deep Bay is my favorite with a calm sea and white sand. Yepton is very wild with no people. Also, Fort Barrington overlooks Deep Bay and the views are indescribable. Thank you Gabriela for a lovely stay and we will definitely be seeing you again.

My husband and I spent the second half of our honeymoon at Yepton Cottages and we are so happy we did! It was truly magical. Gabriela and Doug were so helpful and warm, taking us on a tour of the area and to the supermarket to stock up and even providing some leftover shaving cream when we ran out! We stayed in a one bedroom cottage overlooking a small pond and it was romantic, clean, and spacious. There is a pool onsite that we spent some time in and it is a quick walk to a stunning beach. We cooked in all four nights we stayed, using both the grill on the deck and the well-stocked kitchen inside. Every morning we were visited at breakfast by Fred, a lesser antillian finch. We are planning to go back for some more diving and look forward to staying at the cottages again! Thank you for a wonderful time. ~ Meg and Collin
