Reviewed March 31, 2013

I love the Everglades gardens and have been going for many years. We have enjoyed family picnics and walking around the gardens.

“Stunning garden design and stone work”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I spent two hours wandering about these gardens which cascade down a hill, with a stream and grotto pool on the lower slopes. The dry stone walls are works of art and, as a gardener pointed out, as straight as when they were built many years ago. In March there were few flowers, but the variety of plants and trees provide multitude shades of green and the range is amazing. The art deco house is worth a visit and the tea room offers a good choice of light meals and cakes. There are wonderful views from different vantage points. I recommend spending time here as it is a beautiful, peaceful experience. Those interested in gardens and garden design will find lots to enjoy.

“A true gem”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We first visited 5 years ago and the house was quite run down. It was great to return with our kids and see the changes that have been made. It's a real glimpse into the past and the gardens are something else! We hope Everglades is around for many more years.

“Great value, lovely house and shady gardens”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

If you have the trolley tours bus tickets you get into this house for 50% which makes it worthwhile going. The trolley bus drops you of in front of the house. The gardens are well maintained and the house has a lovely cafe run by volunteers which had unfortunately shut by the time we got there, but the cakes did look very yummy indeed. Our boys enjoyed running around the gardens and the house. Can recommend for a quiet, laid back attraction in Leura.

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We went there to watch " Shakespeare in the gardens" and we enjoyed it tremendously. I'll definitely come back there next year if the program will continue.
