“Was OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Didn't find anything "extraordinary' about this place except the view. It is right on the water in the Coconut Grove area.

“Too Small to be Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

A cute little walking trail plus green landscape with an old house on the property (oldest in Miami) and great views of the ocean and yachts. Relaxing walk through history.

“A nice corner of Miami's history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

If you are in the Coconut Grove area this is a place worth visiting. It takes you back to the pioneer lifestyle that started Miami.

“Hidden treasure in the middle of Coconut Grove, Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

What a surprize to find this hidden little gem right in the middle of the bustle of downtown Miami. It is a 'tropical hardwood hammock', which was the original landscape of the area and is one of the few remaining. A beautiful, very quiet little park, full of tropical plants and hardwoods, the home is open to the public and the boat house down by a peaceful portion of Biscayne Bay show the original idea of attaching cables to the building in order to withstand hurricanes. Plus there is a mystery "well" or something, no one knows exactly what it is. Very cute place, nice walk from the Mayfair Hotel or anywhere in Coconut Grove.

Great historic house and mangove hammoch. Some peace and quiet just a half block walk from the hustle of Coconut Grove. Bay front view.
