“Great rainy day activity!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

We went here on a whim because it was raining. We self toured the house and gardens and checked out all the little shops. It was pretty cool! I love old houses and history so this place fascinates me. The rum distillery was also very delicious and free!

“A Fun Luau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went here for a Luau. It was a great show with excellent food. We paid just under $200, but that included the bus ride from the North Shore. Well worth it if you can't say no to unlimited cocktails. The entire show was awesome. We really enjoyed the fire part of the show as well. Worth the extra money to take the bus and get a good seat. The place is huge and you won't want to get the cheap seats here because you'll miss the show.

“Excellent presentation in dance and song”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Service was excellent. Food okay. Entertainment excellent. Told that it started at 5 but it didn't really get underway until 6:15. Other than that overall experience was worth the price of admission. Excellent organization
