Has to be seen to be believed. If you’ve ever watched Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and wanted to see how they live up close, this is the place for you. Built by James Deering, heir to the Deering Harvester Company and competed in 1922, it’s a fabulous, over-the-top celebration of how the 1% lived early last century...and probably... More

The gardens and views were amazing. The home was also beautiful and truly amazing for the time period it was built in. Our only complaint was the prices. It's 18 for adults which includes anyone 13 or older. That only gives you access to the grounds. Guided tours, audio tours and even an informational pamphlet will set you back an... More

Beautiful example of early 1900s Florida architecture. Lovely gardens. The woodwork was truly amazing, the innovative use of electricity in the day was fun to see. Nicely done tour.

Full day if you wish. Lots to see. Fantastic. Right on Metro Rail route. Dislike - A long wait at entrance even though a short line. 3 ticket takers, but each person took about 5 minutes to process.

Reminiscent of the Gardner Museum in Boston but WITHOUT the artcollection. It is like the homes of Rhode Island of the rich and famous. Except here it iset in Florida and the theme is the Venetian waterways. You can imagine what it was at the turn of the 20th century. The gardens are interesting to explore as it gives you... More

The gardens and waterfront are beautiful. The villa is interesting, and worth looking at it if you have time and the inclination. The price is a bit steep ($18 for adult), so if you're not into antiques and specific location history, this might not be for you. On a nice day, it's lovely to explore the gardens however. And if...

OK, but expected it to be as good as San Simeon. Lunch at the café was good but too expensive. The gift hop had some nice things to buy.

Visited with a friend. It is a lovely house and the history behind it was interesting and the gardens were nice to walk through as the weather was just perfect. That said, it was $18 per person just to walk the grounds and the house. While we were there, a photo shoot was going on throughout the gardens and tea... More
