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

My friends and I booked an excursion that included a tour of the Clay Villa Plantation House. 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

I booked the Best of St. Kitts tour for my daughter and myself directly through the Clay Villa website, and communicated directly with Bridget and Phillip through email. They responded promptly and with all the information we needed when we arrived. When our cruise ship arrived in St. Kitts, we were met at the pier by Wilma, our tour guide,... More

A great touring experience. Philip walks the grounds w you explaining the vegetation, the history of the structures, the history of the grounds and the impressive collection of artifacts collected by himself and his wife's family over the past 250 years. A plantation first ostracized for not owning slaves is a beacon of how 'right' will prevail. The hardship of... More

This is our third visit to this amazing plantation. We kept in touch with Philip and Bridget, the owners of Clay Villa Plantation over the years and they are the nicest and down to earth people you will ever meet. Bridget is always adding to the place, whether another garden or animals. Their three dogs love to be petted. As... More
