“Nice walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Close by and for a small donation of 2$ each, worth the history lesson. Located right on Biscayne bay

“Good place to spend the 4th of July”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Barnacle offers a simple, small town 4th of July celebration. Hot dogs cooked on the grill, kite flying, croquette and live music. It's nothing fancy, but it is a very relaxing way to spend the holiday.

“Nice but not necessary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I enjoyed my visit to this attraction. It was home to a boat builder and was one of the first homes in the area. A very humble sort of place in a beautiful setting, but really not worth going out of your way to see.

“Worth an Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Is a cool piece of property right in coconut grove so if you have an hour to spare or are just strolling around is a nice leisurely walk down to the dock with bay views, don't forget your mosquito spray.

“Nice hidden place in Coconut Grove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The entrance is free so it's worth it anyway if you are passing through Coconut grove. There is a sweeping view on the sea, it's great to have a picnic on the grass and the house is interesting. Lots of mosquitoes during the wet season.
