We went all the way to Chicken Key passing the Deering Estate and then came back at around sunset. it was one of the most incredible views of this beautiful estate. i am... More

This place is a "find". You can listen to music on Sat nights, you can plan a wedding there or just walk around the grounds.

It proved to be more beautiful and interesting than expected.The two houses in one were impressive. The grounds are beautiful.The view is great. I suggest to take the guided tour of the house. the guide made the scene come alive. The explanations were enlightening. The big was intended as an exhibition gallery but looked like one you could live in.... More

I came to the Deering Estate for a Professional Development workshop sponsored by Miami Dade County Public schools. I must say that I appreciated this experience immensely. For as long as I have lived in Florida I had not visited the Deering Estate. The grounds of the Deering Estate are well kept and the house itself has been maintained. The... More

This is like going back in time to the 1920's. The Deering Estate is a large piece of land by the Bay. The house has been restored somewhat. The gardens are beautiful and the view to the bay is spectacular.

We visited Vizcaya and decided to visit the home owned by his brother Charles. This is a much more modest home but the grounds are very impressive. We enjoyed walking throughout the property.

Shoreline extends forever, feel like you are taken back in time. This was the home of Charles Deering until he died in 1927. He was brother to James Deering, owner of Vizcaya. "Deering Estate" is 444 acres on the edge of Biscayne Bay. This estate has Spanish tile, balconies, porches, grand staircases, drawing rooms, clawfoot tubs, and gardens. One plant,... More

It turns out that they give tours there (if I had only known...), but they are not very frequent and I had just missed one. I wandered around on my own and didn't see any tour group. Parts of the estate are restored (ruined by a hurricane), so this is not really the original. I've visited nice mansions in Rhode... More

The tour consists of two separate houses, the original wooden house and the later added stone home. One of the few places to enjoy Florida's pioneering history. Also has some beautiful paths throughout the property for nature lovers. Worth it.

This historic house and grounds are set alongside the bay with beautiful views, nature paths, picnic areas and artist studios in vintage cottages. One can easily imagine the attraction that the location held for the earliest settlers in Miami. A house tour rounds out the visit as docents provide a large amount of information about the property and the surrounding... More
