A beautiful garden full of fun n excitement. I know it is a small property but it packs a big punch. You have to check out the coy pond n make a wish. They waterfall is also a great way to make sure you have some great pictures to show off from your visit.

Great formal subtropical garden. Nice breezes even on a hot day. Enjoyed the music from hidden speakers throughout the garden.
