My family and I had a wonderful time on this tour. The home and gardens are meticulously cared for by Philip and Bridget. The owners are probably the nicest people you'll ever meet. The cost of the tour is $15 and the proceeds go into rehabilitating the animals they've taken in from the veterinary school down the street. If you... More

This villa was the best thing about our trip to St. Kitt's. Philip, the owner, was so funny and so knowledgeable. We had fun on this tour from our Royal Caribbean cruise. The garderns were spectacular and the lush area was well kept and of course, his wife was in the gift shop. They even had an outside bar with... More

My boyfriend, parents, and I booked this as an excursion for our Royal Caribbean cruise 2 weeks ago. We booked through Trip Advisor and Philip arranged for our wonderful driver, Leroy, to pick us up right at the port. Leroy was amazingly courteous and knowledgeable, we could not have asked for a better guide. Our time at the plantation exceeded... More

One of the most beautiful properties we've ever visited! Beautiful flowers, charming home and loads of both historic and whimsical items throughout the house and gardens. The owner and our tour guide made the tour fun. We loved all the nooks and crannies; those with mobility challenges may want to inquire first as most of the tour involved slopes, steps... More

I visited St Kitts recently as a port of call whilst on a cruise. We didnt do many of the pre-arranged shore excursions but liked the sound of this one. I was so happy we did, this place is beautiful. The house is still the home of the Clay family. The house is overlooking the Ocean and set amongst acres... More

On a cruise excursion tour, we had the good fortune to be visiting this wonderful property of Philip and Bridget. Learning the history of the plantation (the only one in St. Kitts that refused to use slave labor), walking through their unbelievably lush gardens, and viewing the family's acquisitions acquired over 5 generations was spectacular. Philip leads the tour and... More
