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.

This estate was built by Charles Deering, who was James Deering's brother (James built Vizcaya a few miles north of this estate). While Vizcaya is full of antiques and beautiful works of art, this home is more humble (if you can call it that). The grounds are beautiful with breathtaking views of the bay and it is located in a... More

A great place for nature walks. Florida's environment at its best. Take a guided tour of the Charles Deering Mansion, too, and be sure the guide takes you to view the secret in the basement!!

Very nice and tranquil spot. Went here for a jazz concert and loved the grounds. Close to the ocean and covered with foliage. Very nice place for photo shoots, weddings, music videos, or just to relax.

A good place for the family to go to and have a picnic. Beautiful location but the house isn't anywhere in the league of Vizcaya Charles Deering's brothers place.

If you love beautiful estates, a lovely view of the bay, a unique ecosystem with Manatee, crocodiles, & various species of bird, then you're going to love it here. There are awesome trails, and did I mention the artist residency program which runs year round. I visit here when ever I can, but today was unique because there was a... More
