We spent about an hour here on a recent trip and enjoyed the gardens and scenic views. We had the garden to ourselves on a Sunday morning, which was nice. Guests walk on a path made of wooden decking that loops around the garden. It takes only 30 minutes or so to walk the path. We enjoyed the tropical plants... More

We stopped at this property on our way back down from Mountain Top. There was only one other car in the parking lot. There was a kiosk where we should paid, but nobody was there. We wandered through the property, and took the short boardwalk stroll to see the plants. At the beginning of the walk through the gardens there... More

We just left there a little while ago. We had so much fun. We walked through the lush botanical garden and seen a few birds! Which were very entertaining! Then we went up the the observation deck and it was a breath taking view! My husband & I loved and you can see the other island too! We recommend this... More

We only went as we prearranged zip lining right across the street. Staff was very friendly and charged child price for anyone under 18. Grounds were ok. I was bothered by the birds kept in cages in total shade. Cages needed a good disinfecting!! the view from the highest level is what you go for. It is spectacular! Restrooms were... More

Enjoyed short walk through tropical garden. Maybe we missed something, but didn't really see much "greathouse" architecture, so somewhat disappointed with that. The garden was lush and pretty, viewed from multilevel wooden walkway. Nice scenery. Several beautiful caged toucans. Not enough for a destination attraction, but great stop on a tour or if passing nearby on way to other activities.

We were in beautiful St. Thomas for a week in March of 2016 and this was a very upsetting part of the trip. The gardens are filthy and strewn with trash. I saw zero orchids. There were beautiful parrots kept in filthy cages, devoid of sunlight and rat infested. The humane society should go in and remove the birds from... More

I was very disappointed to see that the garden was not kept up and some of the birds were not there. What amazed me was the view on top. It had a breathtaking view of the island and the surrounding islands as well.

Stopped here as part of an island tour as part of our cruise ship adventure. .Besides a great view ocean, it is a beautiful landscaped property.. Well kept house and get a sense of people with money like to entertain themselves here.

We stopped at St. Peter Great House on a tour of St. Thomas and were impressed by its beauty. The views from the upper porch are spectacular and you can see far and wide from that vantage point. The gardens are lush and green and beautiful. You can spot parrots and other Island birds among the greenery. There's a gift... More
