We took our much longed-for honeymoon in Antigua, and we couldn't have asked for a more idyllic base than Yepton Estate. The blend of its naturally beautiful lakeside setting (with a dipping pool on site, and lovely beaches just a short walk away), our perfectly cosy, clean and brilliantly equipped cottage (everything from our own veranda bbq to a kingsized bed, great kitchen facilities, DVD/stereo, a coolbox for long days in the sunshine...), and crucially, the exceptionally thoughtful hospitality, charm and super-savvy island tips of Yepton owners Gabriela and Douglas Luery, all added up to a blissful experience that we'll cherish forever. We were able to independently explore Antigua without the artificial constraints of all-inclusive resorts, but we could also luxuriate in a warm, homely atmosphere - and Gabriela helped us arrange anything from our settling-in supplies to booking fantastic restaurant tables (a sunset view at Sheer Rock - mind-blowing). Yepton's reputation preceded it, as we'd heard heartfelt recommendations from family and friends - and our honeymoon experience exceeded it! We hope we'll return one day...

Having traveled many Caribbean islands we fell in love with Antigua 5 years ago. This being our third trip back, Yepton Estate Cottages, provides us a great base to visit the many beautiful beaches and restaurants needed to blow-off the winter doldrums living in the northeast USA. Gabie and Douglas, that we now call friends, have your best interests at heart to see and enjoy all the island has to offer. Yepton is a quit little peninsula that requires driving through St Johns that really gives you a good sense of the local life and seeing the giant cruse ships that dock there. Yepton Estate Cottages is a beautiful little place on a lagoon with Coconut beach beyond and short walk from Deep Bay. We recommend this for anyone looking for a quit place to relax and explore the island.

This was exactly the experience we were looking for in a honeymoon. After a busy season of wedding planning Yepton Estate Cottages was the perfect place to get away and rest. Gabriela and Douglas equipped us to enjoy the whole island with their attention to detail, service and experience by coordinating everything from renting a car, booking tours,getting groceries, navigating the island and cultural orientation. The accommodations are spotless and very well equipped, The view of the lagoon and ocean was amazing. We spent many mornings and afternoons on the porch/in the hammock enjoying the cool ocean breeze. The quiet, private nature of the cottages provided a welcome respite. It was also a good location to begin exploring the island (5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minute drive to St. John). This is the place to stay if a fancy, over-crowded commercialized resort is not your style. We would not hesitate to recommend Yepton to anyone wanting to spend their honeymoon, romantic getaway, or vacation in Antigua. We absolutely loved every minute of our time spent here!

Room Tip: There are no bad cottages!

If you are looking for a quiet, clean, simple cottage in Antigua, you cannot do better than Yepton Estates! I was very impressed w how well stocked the cottage was. The owners could not have been more accomodating: they drove us to the supermarket on the day we arrived (in fact, they had to make 3 trips that day for other later arrivals as well!), lent us a phone & beach tote (which we forgot), immed responded whenever anything was amiss, and Douglas even glued my broken sandal together! The beach is a very short walk away. I would recommend getting a rental car almost immed. I can only concur with Jagjive's extensive review already posted. When one reads it, one assumes he's on the Yepton payrole :) but in fact, everything he says is 100% true! including the mosquitoes. But really, they were our only complaint the whole trip. Def a fantastic place to stay.

Although we only had time to stay for four and a half days, we felt so at home with Gabriela and Douglas and in our perfect little cottage at Yepton Estates. We are haters of all-inclusive hotels as we love to try all of the local restaurants, so this place was more than perfect for us. It's your own Caribbean cottage stocked with a full kitchen and everything from beach chairs & towels to pots and pans and bottle openers. We loved being able to eat breakfast in our own kitchen, make a picnic and take it to go in the provided ice chest and eat on the beach! We rented a car and were able to explore the whole island in our short time there and go to so many wonderful beaches and restaurants. Gabriela and Doug gave us wonderful recommendations and perfect directions (Douglas knows the island roads and locations probably better than anyone in Antigua and has even helped with making maps/putting the island on GPS!). Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We slept comfortably, really enjoyed the location of Yepton and the grounds (I could have rested for weeks in the hammock outside of our cottage!), the amenities of the cottage and most of all, our wonderful hosts! I can't imagine staying there without renting a car, but if you like to be able to make your own food and eat at different restaurants, and have an adventurous spirit and like to explore, this is the perfect place to stay in Antigua!
