I'm so glad I use Trip Advisor whenever I travel or I would not have known about Clay Villa Plantation!! What a fabulous tour! Phillip shows you proudly around the grounds and home - he should be proud of this gorgeous place - everywhere you walk there are things to ooh and ah at! They are collectors of beautiful things...

We arranged for our tour directly through Philip at Clay Villa. He rapidly responded to our e-mail, and Jermaine, our driver and guide had a signboard and was waiting for us at the information booth. His van was immaculate and the A/C worked well. We got an informative tour of Basseterre and then off to Clay Villa. Philip met us... More

My in-laws told us we absolutely had to see this place during our cruise and they were not wrong. This is one of the most interesting and beautiful places on earth. Philip knows his history and relates it in the most personable ways. His collections are varied and all beautiful. This is the number one attraction on this island and... More

Book this directly on his website to save money. We loved the tour and Oliver our driver was great and very knowledgeable. This was different than most excursions and we loved it! Go see Clay Villa!

Clay Villa is the home of a woman born to a Caribe planter's family and her English husband. They give a fascinating tour but the place is hard to find and information about the tours is best found on their own website. Book directly with them and it's cheaper.

I sent an email to Phillip prior to our cruise to book the Mabreeka St. Kitts Beach Escape. There's no deposit in advance and the guide that was waiting for us at the pier was very good. Philip did the visit of his domain and it was awesome. It was great to see all the tropical vegetation and also the... More

We had a cruise stop in St Kitts so I contacted Phillip at Clay Villa to arrange an island tour that included tour of the Villa. Our party of four chose a bit of a custom tour that included a circumnavigation around the main part of the island including Basseterre, a Clay Villa tour, Romney Manor, Timothy Hill Lookout, Black...

We had booked the "Best of St. Kitts" tour directly through Clay Villa and were the only couple who had signed up for it so we had a mini-van taxi all to ourselves throughout the tour! Our guide was a bit quiet at first but warmed up and showed us all the sights we wanted to see. At a certain... More

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
