I recently visited the wondrous gardens of the Clay Villa Plantation. What a beautiful and lush tropical oasis. I highly recommend a visit here. There is so much history to learn about as you wander through the twists and turns that make up this amazing property and enchanting gardens. Philip, our tour guide, is a wealth of knowledge and very... More

My wife and I, and two friends booked a "Best of St. Kitts tour" through Philip at the Clay Villa Plantation House and Gardens. We normally book through the crew ship when we go on an excursion and find "historical tours" to be somewhat lackluster in authenticity. Much to our surprise this tour was AMAZING. We were picked up at... More

My husband and I toured with 3 other people. Beautiful gardens, rich history, and a delicious drink at the end. We loved seeing the monkeys up close! There is a new baby!

Wife and I have visited Saint Kitts before and have always made it a point to visit Clay Villa each time. Our last trip to the Island was this May and made sure we took another tour of this lovely plantation with its beautiful gardens and historical items. The owners Philip and Bridget Hurd are fun people who always have... More

We visited Clay Villa in April 2015. We took the local bus which are vans for 1$ US per person and were dropped off right at Clay Villa. It is hard to see from the highway but follow the dirt path and then turn right and wait at the closed gate until Phillip/Staff open it. Phillip was very funny and... More

Visited Clay Villa as part of a Royal Caribbean cruise excursion. Owner directed tour. Fantastic eclectic home, gardens and collections. Interesting historical and local information shared by our guide. He has a salty sense of humor. Beautiful murals painted by owner. Lots of stairs and terrain, but not difficult. Highly recommend.

Take the tour of the Clay Villa. Phillip's rum punch is worth the price of the tour. The best we had on the island. Phillip was very knowledgeable about the history of the island. The views of the Caribbean from his porch are wonderful. The home and grounds are truly beautiful and it's nice to see his rescued animal collection.... More
