When you go here, make sure you go to the restroom first. I did not see any restrooms nor any restaurants. There are quails, chicken, ducks, roosters, peacock just roaming around. Beautiful garden.

Property appears to be run down and not cared for like I am sure it was many years ago. Birds and rosters following you throughout the garden. Save your money and time and take a drive somewhere lovely on the island.
