This place was so beautiful! It's a must see when you're in Florida. It's a great place to go and take senior or wedding pics. I even ate in the cafe and the cheeseburger was awesome! My only complaint was that it was so hot and I didn't stay as long as I wanted to because of it so I'd... More

Beautiful place. I was amazed at how well preserved everything is considering that most of the rooms can be entered and furnishings amay be touched by visitiors. The story of how the mansion and gardens were created is great. We arrived just as the house was opening, no line, fresh staff. By the time we were leaving there was a... More

If you are in the Miami area you really need to visit. It is beautiful be ready to be amazed at the history of it all, I do recommend taking the tour and having them walk you around and tell you the history.

The home is beautiful, the setting and gardens are exquisite! We enjoyed the self-guided tour of the house and then wandered the gardens.
