“For History Buffs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

If you like to visit historical sites, this is for you. Small estate with beautiful views and 2 historical homes. One has been rebuilt as it was destroyed in hurricane Andrew. Great walk through mangroves.

“Nice walk near the bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

There is a nice walk around the grounds and a tour of the house. A few hours to see the entire property. The best time is to go to one of the festivals that are held often on the grounds.

“Peaceful retreat in the middle of the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Being from South Florida, I had never been to this place since it was closed for several years after Hurricane Andrew. It is a true hidden gem. The grounds are stunning with amazing views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic. There are so few visitors you don't feel rushed. Pack a picnic and enjoy sitting under the towering royal palms overlooking the grounds. The staff is so friendly and welcoming...unlike the rest of Miami! This is a must-see for visitors and locals alike.

“Nice Attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Our Grandson was visiting and as he is a teenager we were looking for something interesting for him to do. Took him to Deering Estate and at first he was quite disappointed due to the mosquitoes being bad as it had recently rained. However, when we got inside he really started to enjoy himself. Even though the buildings have A/C it was still a bit warm but it wasn't a problem. This place was lliterally destroyed by Hurricane Andrew and has been renovated to its original splender. If you get a chance take a self guided tour of Deering Estate, you won't be sorry.

“Nice Piece Of Property”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Glad it was free the day we went. Not really furnished to the period as other historic homes are. Wine cellar was neat, though. Maybe pass on this one...
