We were bused to the plantation and met the owner, Phillip, on the walkway to the house. He was friendly and full of stories and quips. The gardens were lovely, the house and grounds stuffed with memorabilia from many generations. After the tour, Phillip treated us all to a rum drink in his private pub.

Old style colonial building which is really beautiful, they certainly did build some wonderful buildings in those times, despite the horrors there are some winders to behold. St Kitts us a fascinating island quite similar to others around.

Clay Villa in St Kitts is a must. We did the Mabreeka St. Kitts Beach Escape tour. We were picked up on time and had a great driver who gave us a lot of the history. Phillip (the Owner) gave the tour of the plantation and the beach at South Friars was beautiful. Clay Villa itself was just amazing with... More

We took this tour awhile ago and i was not impressed. Lots of little knick nack things to look at but other than that i found the owner off putting. He seemed to speak poorly of the island and had some comments i found to be less tolerant racially. Not the tour for me. Our Taxi driver however was awesome!

My husband and I had a wonderful tour. We arranged our tour through the Clay Villa website. Our driver Winston a.k.a Merchie was friendly and full of information about daily life on the island. At Clay Villa, Philip was fantastic. He provided history about the island, the plantation and a lot of humor. The gardens and animals were beautiful. Please... More

Very good tour! We were greeted by our friendly driver as soon as we got off the cruise ship. He gave us a tour of the city and we headed to the plantation house. Philip was there to greet us and our driver gave us a tour of the property. We had some really good drinks after the tour and... More

First, I want to thank the tour company for waiting for me to get off the ship. I was 30 minutes late and they still stuck around to pick me up. The tour was four hours and was worth every penny. I toured Clay Village Plantation, Romney Manor, the old Sugar Planatation and the Brimstone Fortress. And I enjoyed myself... More

Thinking of something to do, we came across this place online and through our car rental and thought we'd see what it was like and we weren't disappointed! Lovely scenery and wonderful people. We had a tour of the house and the history behind it and enjoyed an afternoon tea with many home made cakes, sandwiches and a lovely green... More
