This is a delightful garden area where you'll think you've left all hustle-and-bustle behind. The owner graciously tells you all about the plants and suggests places to check out at the Gardens. You will want to inch along, because there is so much to see: spices, ferns, flowers, quiet trails, etc. You can rest in charming seating areas. I was... More

Took an excursion to the gardens while on a cruise. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to truly take it all in. It is truly beautiful. We sampled local fruits and they were tasty. There are trail within the gardens which we did not have the time to enjoy ... pity.

You are paying money to take a short I/2 hour hike up a mountain with a nice view on top, nothing more. You certainly don't need to also pay for the guide. Overall, not worth it.

The garden did not have a guide the day we stopped in, but the self guided tour was still enjoyable. If you are up to it, the hike through the jungle or mountain trail will lead you to a breathtaking view of Anthony's Key. The owner arrived as we were leaving and it would have been nice to spend more... More

Very well kept garden with a selection of paths in varying degrees of difficulty. The garden paths are easy to walk on. Depending of your love for plants you may want to spend hours here. You should give yourself at lest a hour. We meet Bill the owner and he informed us of the layout and explained some of the... More

We were fortunate enough to be given a guided tour by the owner and creator of this amazing place, Bill Brady. He bought 40 acres of jungle and has left most of it to mother nature giving it a helping hand here and there. We only saw a small part of this wonderful place and could quite easily have spent...

This is a beautiful garden. The owner is likely to greet you himself and give you a helpful introduction, and if you'd like a guide they are available for $10 more. However, the plants in the garden are also plainly marked so you likely won't need one. If you feel energetic, there is a steep hike to a view that... More
