... a couple of hours so no point maybe another time. I'm really loving how friendly and how easily it is to make friends around here, especially knowing you'll see all these people again in a year's time since they all own the same weeks as you.
My parents are back from their dinner date so we're off to meet up with our new friends for some kareoki and happy hour fun at the local ...
... with a young (obviously just married) couple, having some sort of sexual congress in the pool.
There was not much to see around the lake, the odd flitting sight of a bird, and a good deal of honking and whistling. I did notice a sign which said "no guests beyond this point". Unfortunately this was at the end of the road which David and I had come out of the other day, so we had obviously wandered into the dark side of ...
... animals we had seen had tails which dangled down so they were sheep. My sister is now on a mission to find the stubby tailed goats. I told here that when we got to the hotel she should look up into the hills behind the hotel, as there is a flock of mountain goats there. You can tell they are mountain goats, I told her, becuase the legs on one side are shorter than the other to make is easier for the animals to climb steep hills. Strangely she didn't seem ...
... the poor guy was hounded by an intense interrogation on the island and its surroundings and inhabitants. Iain and the girls had a very different story, windows open and stops for carsick girls!
We arrive, seconds later rum punch in hand, it's very hot, humid hot, to our rooms with balconies overlooking the beach and sea - I think I can do this for a week - ...

It took me a little while to adjust to boat life having spent about a year as a land lubber. Plenty of hot running water for a bath and a large kitchen to cook in had become quite attractive as well as spending time with my family, but once back on the boat everything fell into place. We spent Christmas Day in Bequia, one of the Grenadine Islands, and met some friends that we hadn’t seen since the Med. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Antigua's Yepton Estate Cottages St. John's
W e spent over two weeks in Yepton Cottages in February this year.
This spot is amazing. The owners, Gabriella and Douglas, were absolutely amazing. The would get cabs for us whenever we called. Oh, and they even give you a cell phone while your there. Talk about thinking of everything. The cottages are better than my apartment - the kitchen allowed me to find a hidden chef deep within myself! Beautiful and spacious, they're appointed with paintings that Gabriella did. We stayed in one of the studio cottages and it was plenty large for us. Eat breakfast and dinner on the porch - go grocery shopping at the public markets; listen to the whistling ducks on the lagoon, bar-b-que with the grill on every cottage's porch. They have thought of just about everything - even high speed internet access.
Pristine and Peaceful
I enjoyed a gloriously peaceful week here in Feb 07. The bungalows are all new and spotlessly clean as well as very well equipped. The birds will fly to your terrace and almost feed out of your hand. It's also easy to get to St Johns though you will need a rental car (easy to find). Wired internet was very reliable when I was there, though not always the case in Antigua.
What a find!
Can't recommend this place enough... an idyllic setting in the best area on the island... Gabriela and Douglas really look after you... the cottages were beautiful and really comfy, and it was so great having a kitchen so we could make our own drinks and meals... the grounds were really peaceful... beautiful!
We travelled to Antigua specifically to elope. Gabriella at Yepton Estate organised this so brilliantly well for us that we had to do little more than turn up! Everything was organised by her - legal paperwork, the cake, the celibrant, the hair, the photography & video work, floral arrangements, witnesses and champagne. She even called us in Australia to discuss what we wanted to ensure that everything went smoothly; which it did.
siamo tornati da poco da una settimana ad Antigua e,ripensando alla nostra vacanza, dobbiamo dire che,a parte l'arrivo all'aeroporto,dove abbiamo passato pių di due ore tra visti,ritiro bagagli e dogana,tutto č andato benissimo.
A partire dal soggiorno presso lo yepton estate , dove siamo stati come a casa, grazie anche alla gentilezza della proprietaria Gabriela, che ci ha fatto trovare un cottage perfettamente attrezzato (perfino con le sdraio da portare in giro per spiagge!!)e sempre perfettamente pulito ed in ordine.
in tutta l'isola, girata con una macchina in affitto, siamo sempre stati accolti con cortesia e, quando chiedevamo informazioni in quanto per le strade ci sono pochissime indicazioni,le persone si sono sempre dimostrate disponibilissime.
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings then we can strongly recommend these superbly equipped cottages. The four (soon to be five) units are set on a private lagoon with a wealth of birdlife, and there is also a small swimming pool for cooling off.
Our eighth visit to Antigua was very special, we were pleased to find these immaculate & especially well equiped cottages on a lagoon with views & birds galore. We like quiet places that are close to the beach, shops, & resturants. St Johns is 15min by taxi with shops & good grocery, resturants are there & closer, and the beach is a 5min walk. These cottages are unique in cleanliness, decor, and superbly equiped kitchen. A true find on a lovely island.
