“For a day outdoors with a touch of history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

The grounds are beautiful, as is the view of the ocean. You'll learn a bit about Miami history along the way. There's also an artist area near the house that's always interesting.

“Historic Old Florida, spectacular views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This is another great place to take out of town guests. Not only do you experience some Florida history but kayak tours, cycling tours and classes are also offered. In the summer months it can get hot so be prepared to dress lightly and use mosquito repellant. the views are worth it. It's lovely!

“One of the great attractions in Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

It is off the beaten path but it is worth the trip. I live nearby and I have been to concerts there which were lovely. I recently went to a memorial service for a dear friend which was held there and it was a moving experience, the grounds are lovely and the lawn going down to the bay is inspiring. Seagulls and frigate birds fly overhead and you have a sense of the naturific side of Florida.The mansion is lovely and you go back in timewhile walklng through the house and the gardens. Once a month there are moonlight kayak trips.. a must do for the adventurous!

“Biggest Backyard On The Bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Lots to explore here from the House to the trails. The views of Biscayne Bay are panoramic, great place to capture some special photos. They are always doing some kind of event from paranormal to lectures and art shows to seafood festivals. Great place to visit. Family friendly for sure.
