“Great place to host events”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

It's right on the water and full of history. Similar to Vizcaya, but does not rate as high.
I went to a wedding there and it was very nice. You can get a nice set-up outside in the courtyard or in the rear, by the water (if weather holds up). Inside is not as nice.
Great place for photos, but it you are a professional, you have to pay.

“Beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

You will love this estate. The view and the history abounds. See if you can recognize this location from an old TV show.

“Nice drive to Cutler, FL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Really enjoyed comparing Viscaya to Deering Estate and seeing the "countryside" of Miami. The walking trail through the mangrove trees was beautiful and very wheelchair accessible ! Would enjoy a bike trip one day. Wish they had a small cafe or area to sit and enjoy the peacefulness of the restored houses and guest home. Great day and worth the drive.

“NOT WORTH THE ENTRANCE FEE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I don't know what all the fuss is about. Yes, it's nice. The view is pretty, but the house itself is nothing special. You can walk through it in five minutes or less and it won't leave an impression on you. The rooms are nearly empty, with all the original furnishing gone. Maybe if you go during a special program, you'll enjoy it more.
