“My little secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I went there by coincidence. I was walking around Coconut grove and I found this park that the entry was free. I said let's go! It was pretty awesome. Beautiful view! Very relaxing.

“Commodore Monroe's estate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

Barnacle State Part sets off of Main Avenue in the heart of Coconut Grove. A walk down the path through lush tropical vegetation leads to the old homestead of Commodore Ralph Monroe built in 1891. Commodore Monroe was a highly respected yacht designer of his time. The small estate sits on Biscayne Bay and the grounds are lovely place to walk around or sit and look out over the Bay. The house is furnished the way the Commodore would have lived in it. An interesting part of Florida history tucked off of Main Avenue!

“this place is amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I found it so fascinating that you walk into the home and the house has no ac yet you feel a breeze at all times and its not boiling hot inside. I think if all homes were made like that florida homes wouldnt have so much issue with hurriicanes this house has survived them all the view is breath taking
