“Third visit, this is getting to be a habit with me.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I very rarely return anywhere twice let alone three times so this alone tells anyone reading that this is a great place to stay. Comfort and safety when on holiday are all to me and these are both in abundance at these cottages. I have now stayed in both the one bedroomed and a studio cottage and know both are are a home from home.

The welcome from Gabie and Douglas plus their dogs was as usual wonderful. Another lovely welcome card for my collection awaited me with one of Gabie's super paintings on the cover. I had six nights of pure relaxation and knew that if I needed anything assistance was just up the path.

Two weeks home and I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

“Great Tranquil Accommodation”

I spent an entire month at Yepton and enjoyed the tranquility of the cottages and surroundings. All amenities are provided and the cottages are extremely well equipped. The internet works best outdoors. The owners make every effort to ensure that you have everything you need.

“Brilliant stay at Yepton Estate Cottages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

Prior to booking I read the various reviews regarding how friendly and helpful Gabriela and Douglas were. I was also apprehensive regarding the self catering aspect - we have always travelled on a half board or all inclusive package.
However, on arrival, it was apparent that we had made a good choice. We were warmly welcomed, the cottage was very well appointed with everything that one could possibly need, and Gabriela drove us to the large local supermarket (everything available) once we had settled in.
The location of the cottage was superb, and the birdlife/animal life associated with the lagoon kept us interested throughout. It's a short walk to the nearest soft sand beach - 10 minutes. Here one can relax on the available sun loungers and have use of the hotel bar/restaurant.
Douglas gave us advice on the island and its history, and recommended certain places to visit. This we found very helpful.
In summary, a very enjoyable, relaxing and laid back 10 night stay.

“A return visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Following a lovely week in October 2011 at Yepton I decided a return visit was needed and this time stayed in one of the Studio Cottages. Like the one bedroomed cottages there is everything that could be needed plus a lot more that I hadn't thought I wanted but made full use of as I was there. An added bonus on the walls are originals of Gabby's paintings. Beautiful, colourful and very skilled.

Two of the other cottages were occupied during my stay but I wouldn't have known anyone was there due to the spacing of the properties and the way they are sited so you are not looking straight at your neighbours.

A cottage with disabled access is being built which when complete will be super for those requiring it.
