Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden, St. Kitts
(4.3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and dating back over 300 years, Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden is a prime example of Colonial architecture built almost completely from wood. Once the residence of a French military commander, the house functioned as a hotel during the 1960s and was finally restored to its former glory in 2008. Tour the house to learn about its history. It is accompanied by over two acres (0.8 ha) of botanical garden featuring an apiary, cobblestone central courtyard, a private chapel where you can go rum tasting, and a restaurant.

  • We took this tour as part of a cruise trip. The House itself is very well preserved, especially the gardens. The House is small and there isn't much to see in her. Many of the things that are inside the House are replicas. The history of the House is shown in murals in a room of the House. Interesting but long to read... Perhaps an explanation oral, optional would be good. The tour could have been shorter. There are Wi fii free. The staff very friendly. They served us a rum punch at the end, at the bar.
