About Gabriela Luery

Why Gabriela Luery chose St. John
Within a 5-minute walk to the nearest sand beach by the Caribbean Sea, Yepton Estate Cottages is ideally located in a tropical garden on a salt lake with lots of bird life. It is so peaceful that just swinging in your hammock, reading or watching the wild life, will replenish your soul.
What makes this cottage unique
Having managed a resort in Antigua for many years, we wanted to create something 'different and better' for the self-catering market.
We did not just want to put the key to the property in your hand on arrival and leave you to your own devices. We are here, we are accessible and we will assist with whatever we can to make your holiday a true memory - all while preserving your privacy.
Guestbook comments from the owner
As other reviewers have mentioned, Gabi and Doug were the perfect hosts, thinking of everything from our welcome drink, to the loan of a bird book, to the local phone, to arranging our car hire, to proactively offering us a late check out to facilitate our late ferry. This really made a huge difference to our stay.
The cottage was comfortable, impeccably clean and the kitchen well kitted out. Definitely designed for people who mean to cook full meals. We enjoyed eating every meal on the verandah, watching with interest the range of birds landing on the salt pond.
There are two beaches within walking distance. The far better one is about 10 mins walk away, through the Grand Antigua Resort.
To really appreciate the beaches of Antigua, you would need a car.
