“Nice place, interesting buildings, quick visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We took the tour earlirr this month. The place is a gem but the tour was a bit disappointing--not sure they told enough about the guy himself, where he made his money. Not too busy when we were there, not sure how popular this location is. Glad we went once, but we saw it all and one visit is enough.

“Great nature tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The nature tours here are terrific. We went on the trail and learned about archeological sites, flora and fauna, as well as efforts to restore original plants, water and general nature habitat. The lecturer really cared about her subject and taught us much. Don't miss this if you want to understand the unique ecosystems in this area. I saw it with new eyes. The staff is very dedicated, knowledgeable and friendly. This was a truly relaxing, educational and fun experience.

The tour of the homes was fine. They are kept in great condition. However, the nature tours are what sets this place apart, as well as the exceptional staff. Don't go on the nature walk in the summer unless you enjoy mosquito attacks. The website is excellent. Consult it before you go.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Worth seeing on its own, but also as a comparison to Vizcaya! The old Florida is history worth keeping, and the moguls that lived here had beautiful homes!

“It is a beautiful way to spend the afternoon.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

For a small entrance fee you can walk around the grounds, through the mangroves, go into the houses, or it is a place you may want to take a picnic and sit by the water for the day. It is relaxing and enjoyable.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is Palmetto Bays best kept secret. Take the kids and relax or just sit by the bay and see why it is a jewel by the bay.. If you can get on their website and attend their incredible events (Seafood Festival, Valentine Concert, etc) and you will be in for a real treat FYI a very good friend of mine was married there about 20 years ago and it has just gotten better with age. A must for locals and tourists alike.
