“Great tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I think you have to review this place in proportion to the cost of entry which including the tour is only $5. Bearing that in mind I think it is great value and a very interesting place when taken in context with the history of the local area. If you already know about Merrick, Deering, Flagler etc then you will love a visit to this place to find it's connection to the history of the area. The tour guide we had could not have been any nicer. Please remember to check the site for tour times because if you arrive an there is no tour you will not be allowed to enter the house.

“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.
