YEPTON ESTATE COTTAGES
Yepton Estate Cottages just opened its doors. A small, fully
self-catering community, it is located within half an acre of
landscaped gardens, on a salt pond just off Loblolly Beach that
offers sanctuary to a host of birds, including the West Indian
Whistling Duck, Pelicans, Egrets, Blue and White Herons, etc.
All cottages are air-conditioned with super quiet split air-conditioners, and
have a large balcony with table and chairs, a BBQ and a wide hammock. Each
cottage offers a spectacular view of the pond and the palm trees lining the
beach beyond. A central pool provides cooling relief after a hard day of exploring
The cottages are quality Antech gingerbread houses, built by Douglas Luery
with the interior designed by his wife Gabriela.
With an eye on detail, the cottages are equipped with all creature comforts,
such as heavenly king beds with luxury 350 thread count linens, brand-name
small appliances including coffee maker, blender, microwave, ice maker in the
fridge, etc., plus TV, DVD player and stereo system. The owners have tried
to think of everything, right down to a professional iron and board and all
the other little things that one has at home but misses when abroad.
Lynda and Phil Abbott of “Island Magazine” fame designed, built and painted
much of the furniture. Gigi Industries was chosen to provide modern, utterly
comfortable couches and beds. Old-fashioned washstands, with modern vessels
and fixtures, hair dryer, soft towels, original paintings, Artisan mirrors,
handcrafted book-covers and dried local flower bouquets created by members
of the Woods Gallery, complete the welcoming look.
In short, Antigua’s Yepton Estate Cottages is a genuine home away from home,
in a tranquil and private setting. It is meant for those who need a rest from
the hustle and bustle of life and have traded structured meal plans and all-inclusive
vacations for the serenity of a quiet meal at home and the freedom of exploring
the wonderful restaurants Antigua has to offer.
With Cellular phones and broadband internet provided, this is also the ideal
venue for business people who frequent the island.
