I spent three fantastic days at Yepton Estate Cottages during my last visit to Antigua. The cottages are very clean, well equipped for cooking, have comfortable beds and are quiet. There is a swimming pool with a sunbathing area. There are also a lot of birds. Some of them can be fed from your hand. The cottages are located within walking distance to several lovely beaches, including the island's only clothing optional beach (40 minutes, walking along a quiet road). A walk to the main supermarket will take 45 minutes, and to Saint John's 60 minutes, along a rather busy road. So depending on your physical ability, appetite for walking, and plans, you may want to opt for renting a car or using a taxi. Last but not least, Gabriela and Douglas were exceptional hosts. I felt wholeheartedly welcome at Yepton Cottages: cold drink on arrival, bottle of wine as a gift. Gabriela and Douglas also took me for dinner on the first night! They live next door and can make themselves easily available if you need anything.

Our stay at Yepton Cottages was thoroughly enjoyable. The place is beautiful, perfectly clean and well kept. It makes for a peaceful alternative to the usual hotels. Gabriela and Douglas are excellent hosts and very accommodating with excellent local knowledge which was a great help. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying here. Antigua is an incredibly beautiful place, with amazing quiet beaches all around this island. The only negative comment we have on Antigua is that food and eating out is incredibly expensive and mostly average.

Douglas and Gabriella are the perfect experienced and on site hosts. Even as experienced travelers, their direction and advice saved us alot of hassle. The cottages are well equipped and comfortable in a quiet yet convenient setting minutes from St. John, and Deep Bay and Yepton beaches. Douglas is a font of useful information about history and day trips. Gabby knows her restaurants.

Our third stay at Yepton Estate - 14 days of peaceful seclusion in a cottage hideaway. Gabby and Douglas welcomed us like long lost friends (our last stay was 10 years ago) taking us to the local supermarket on arrival and arranging car hire with a local company. This gives you complete confidence in local services as Gabby and Douglas are widely known and respected in Antigua. The cottages are wonderful - a complete home from home. Totally private, they provide a secluded and safe base from which to enjoy the island. Located in a private estate overlooking a tranquil lagoon beyond which you hear the sound of the waves on the local beach. They are ideally located on the western side of Antigua giving easy access to the best beaches on the island. The cottages are spotlessly clean and well equipped enabling us to self cater.

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.
