I always enjoy learning the history of an area that I am visiting through the lives of the people who lived there. So this tour was just my kind of thing. I visited Vizcaya several years ago. This is not as big or impressive but the history is interesting. Our guide, Nicky did an excellent job and was knowledgeable about... More

We read about this attraction and were disappointed when we arrived there. It was a hot day but we were able to enjoy the ocean breezes down a walkway from what we thought was the entrance to the estate. Could see the estate across the water and through the trees in the distance with a view of Miami but were... More

I didn't know that Charles Deering was the Deering of McCormick Deering/international Harvester, but even if he hadn't been, the sight would still have been fascinating, both for the surviving (and restored after Hurricane Andrew buildings themselves, and for the layers of history that the very informative, passionate even, guide shared with us. If you possibly can, time your visit... More

The area was definitely beautiful and idyllic. The house, not so much. Very disappointed as the house (Richmond Cottage) is essentially a recreation of a home in that period as the original house was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in '92 and rebuilt, according to our guide. Our tour guide was not as knowledgeable as he should have been as he... More

Easy to tour around on your own. I usually don't get a guide so I can wonder and discover on my own. The house has a similar look to Vizcaya, which was built by the other Deering brother, a stepbrother. Peering Estate, however, seems cozier and less opulent. One good thing about this place is the artists' sheds, spaces they... More

The houses are very easy to tour on your own. Be sure not to miss the hidden walking in vault in the basement of the main house. We had a very knowledgable tour guide four a walking tour of the grounds. The estate and grounds are nearly as opulent as his Mr. Deering's step-brother's estate in Miami (Viscaya). You can... More

This place is beautiful for weddings or other formal parties. It is believed to be haunted, but we spent a most pleasant afternoon here. You will be gently caressed by the ocean breeze and mesmerized by the view of the bay.

I want to give this place a good review, but I just can't. I would love for Miami to have history and culture and a past, but it's just not old enough. It's a neat place for Miami standards, but there just isn't all that much to see. Of the two main buildings - I actually thought the wood "shack"... More

As you walk into the property, down the tree covered pathway, you will see Charles Deering's home with the aqua blue bay sparkling in the background. That walk is always so beautiful. Bring a picnic lunch, enjoy the views, hike the nature trails, take a tour of the houses. It is a gem that the crowds haven't found yet.
