We were on a cruise ship and one of our stops was in St. Kitts. We decided to do some research prior to us stopping in St. Kitts. This is where we found Clay Villa on trip advisor and we emailed him. He arranged the island tour for us , Oliver was our guide. The gardens are the most magnificent... More

St. Kitts was the 5th island my sister & I visited on our cruise of the Southern Caribbean, and we wanted to do something different. We'd sailed on a catamaran, gone snorkeling, seen the rain forest and gone horseback riding. We were looking for something unusual and our decision to visit Clay Villa Plantation turned out to be just the... More

Phillip got right back to me with the details, costs and how we could arrange this off of... More

Mr. Hurd is a very interesting and entertaining person. Book Best of St Kitts through his web site. Was met at the pier and transported to Clay Villa and given a great tour by a knowledgeable man who was very courteous. Shore excursions or any island tour seem to be a little over priced but it is what it is.... More

Well worth the wait to see this hidden treasure! Three years ago while on a cruise we attempted to visit Clay Villa Plantation but to our disappointment they were closed that day. So prior to our recent cruise I sent an e mail (22nd Dec) and asked if I could make a booking for a tour on 5th Feb. On... More

The plantation dates back to 1763 and has always been worked by free labor, never slaves. The tour people know it well, but we had a bit of difficulty finding it, since we were driving a rental car. He had 90 from two cruise ships just the day before we arrived. Phillip Hurd is from England. He gives the tours... More

We were greeted by the owner, Philip and given a royal tour of this paradise on earth. What a wonderful place this is! The gardens are magnificent. We enjoyed the monkeys , turtles and parrots which Philip has rescued. The home was beautiful and we enjoyed hearing about the life on this Plantation which has been in Philip's wife's family...

We did the Best of St. Kitts Tour booked directly through Clay Villa. Philip was a great host, and Clay Villa was an amazing place. The rest of the tour included Romney Manor/Caribelle Batik, and Brimstone Hill Fortress which is my favorite fort in the Caribbean.
