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

I was lucky to visit on a free admission "play day". Normal admission is $12, I'm glad I got in free, but we got a condensed version of the tour since the place was packed. We didn't get to go into the hidden wine cellar. Besides that, great place to even have a picnic along the waterfront and the tour... More

I've been there few times, festivals, wedding, chill out. This place is so peacefully delighted , right at Biscayne bay is great place to have an afternoon with a love one, or just family or a friend. Go there if you visit miami.

We came here because it was a "Blue Star Museum". From the parking lot you cannot see the home. What you do see is a large wooden building with a ticket office in it. The day we arrived we walked up and no one was manning the office, the only staff around was maintence people and they did not speak... More

Went in April for a good friends wedding... The view where they said their vows was so beautiful, over looking the water. The estate has an amazing history. The way it was all laid out was perfect. Dancing inside, wine in the basement, dinner in the court yard area. A beautiful place to see.

I have gone to this place for years but never had the opportunity to get the tour and the whole history of it. Lucky me there was no charge that day, check their website, they have different days throughout the year. I read a bad review, sorry it was a bad experience but take into account, it is summer, raining... More

We drove half an hour to get to this place and went to the visitors center to buy a ticket at the ticket office where they told us you can't buy tickets here. Since we went in July the place was full of mosquitos, there were kids at the explores camp everywhere, and the nature trail was closed. We went... More
