I don't know why this is no. 1 other than the lack of other things to do or that the owner asked if anyone was a member of Tripadvisor, then pointed out he "knew" who you are.....(seriously?). We were there as part of a cruiseship tour. The grounds are beautiful, and lovely to stroll around. But inside the "museum" is... More

This is a 17th century manor house. That was completed destroyed by insects. Yet it was completely rebuilt using the original plans and materials. The manor has a large garden area and has great views to the ocean. There is also a pool to cool off in. The roads to the manor at the North end of the island are... More

A fun place to visit if you are interested in flora, fauna and local history. There is no doubt that this a gorgeous house with outstanding gardens, beautiful decorations and historic artifacts. Most of the tour takes place outside, so you really get to see all of the variety of plants and decorations adorning the exterior of the home. Included... More

We found this tour through Trip Advisor and booked directly with Philip for a tour of the Plantation and the Best of St. Kitts. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire day, beginning with our tour of the beautiful Clay Villa Plantation, and continuing throughout the day with our driver, Elwood, who shared the incredible history of the island while taking us...

We booked directly with Phil, although his wife told us on the day that she is actually Phil on e-mails! Anyway, easy to communicate with and prompt replies. We decided to book the best of St Kitts tour on the Clay Villa web site and had a wonderful day. Would recommend if you want to see more of St. Kitts... More

We booked this excursion on the recommendations of Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Elwood picked us up at the port and gave us a 5 star tour. Phillip was the perfect host. Would definitely book this excursion again.

We made arrangements directly with Phillip for a tour of the Plantation and Beach. We were picked up by Gordon at the cruise port. Phillip was very friendly and the tour was very interesting. He had some interesting stories of his life and how he ended up in St Kitts. The gardens were lovely and colorful. There is a beautiful... More
