A hidden gem. A wonderful setting and lovely grounds. Seeing inside the house was really interesting. Great to understand it's history and that of the Deerings. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas by local gardening clubs. You need a cafe and a gift shop! Missed revenue opportunity.

This house sits on the edge of Coconut Creek and has a backyard facing the ocean. The tour is self guided and pictures are allowed. You will not be disappointed. The Deering Estate also has different events throughout the year, if you know when you are visiting check out their web page.

We visited Viscaya the day before. This estate owned by Charles Deering, the half brother of the owner of Viscaya does not have the grand house filled with European treasures. However, the grounds are extensive and there is a number of acres devoted to native flora. The cottage that was first built in the 1890's has been restored since Hurricane... More

This was a nice 2 hour visit while we were in the area without much to do one day. I would not make a special trip for it unless you specifically are interesting in the history of the estate, but if you are in the area, the houses are interesting, nice walk through a mangrove forest and beautiful views of...

I spent a day at the Deering Estate with my little sister (14), and we loved it. Much like Vizcaya there are gardens everywhere with a lovely view of the ocean. With only a small donation entrance is admitted and you can enjoy a lovely day exploring the grounds of the Deering Estate.

I visited Deering Estate with a friend and we brought our children. Mine are 1 and 3, and my 3 year old son was allowed to enter with his scooter. My friend has older children 10 and 16 and they seemed to have enjoyed the visit as much as the little ones. It was a calm visit with lush vegetation,... More

Beautiful grounds for an event but not much to see for visitors. Deering Estate was damaged during Hurricane Andrew 1992 and restored according to the newspaper article on display, maybe restoration is still in progress. During our entire visit caterers were moving tables and chairs with no regard to visitors safety. Parking is limited close to the estate. The visitors... More

This is the most beautiful place for a wedding. Everything was perfect and magical. Picture taking as the sun went down was amazing. Birds flying in the background and fish jumping in the water.
