We were greeted by Phillip, the host and owner of the Plantation with his wife. He was witty, inviting and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The home and gardens were beautiful. I highly recommend visiting when in St. Kitts!

My family and I just returned from an 8 day cruise. One of the ports included St. Kitts. Not satisfied with the excursions the cruise line had to offer, I searched Trip Advisor for attraction recommendations. Standing very firmly in the number one spot was Clay Villa Plantation. I was very impressed after reading the reviews and visiting the Clay... More

Definitely worth visiting. Phillip is an excellent host, welcoming you at the road and regaling all with his tour, stories, and wit. His wife, Bridget, is charming and welcoming. Felt drawn in from the first step. Beautiful home, full of surprises at every turn from architecture, design, and décor, to the history behind it all. The gardens are amazing, as... More

As my kids, my husband and I zip lined, I sent my in-laws to Clay Villa after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor. We exchanged emails as I tried to set up a port pick-up and tour of the property. Philip was totally helpful and accommodating! He even called me at home here in the states at one point! I... More

Phillip was a wonderful, informative host. He made us feel very welcomed. The grounds are beautiful, very colorful flowers and saw different types of plants that we never seen before. The plantation was maintained exceptionally well. The family has alot of pride in their home. After the tour, we were served a cool refreshing drink.

Phillip was a wonderful host, explaining the history of the plantation with humor and passion. A must see when in St-Kitts! We went to this villa as part of a plantation/beach tour through Royal Caribbean Cruises. The beach at Frigate Bay was disappointing but the tour of Clay Villa more than made up for it. I went with my in-laws... More

This was by far the most enjoyable Villas I have ever toured in the Caribbean. I was overwhelmed by all the amazing plants and flowers, the hummingbirds that visited the flowers, all the artifacts in the house and the rescued birds, monkeys, turtles and fish. It is such an amazing place and we had a great time. Phillip was such... More

Philip led us on a tour of this plantation house which can be found amidst lush tropical foliage and gorgeous flowers. He was witty, engaging and informative as well as a gracious host. There were a staggering number of collections in the home... More

I went on a tour with my Aunt from a cruise and this was one of our stops. It was just us and another couple at this stop and it was intriguing and pretty. We had Philip who led the tour and he was witty and humorous, while being friendly and helpful as much as possible. In my opinion there... More

We booked the tour through our cruise ship. It was a wonderful tour. Phillip was informative, very witty and made us feel at home in his home. The house and surrounding grounds were gorgeous. We loved the collections in the home and his menagerie of animals, especially the monkeys. A refreshing drink at the end of the tour was the... More
