  • It's very nice... Love the plants they are beautiful. Cafe is nice! Emus and goats are a plus. Free range chickens are fun. Bamboo maze it so cool especially when it's windy out. stores are a bit over priced and the items are cool makes you feel like your shopping on a island.
  • A great stop. Several small rustic shops on a beautiful property filled with lush gardens, a small shopping trail edged with flowers, butterflies, peacocks and plants. A small place to eat for a quick bite, or a little ice cream stand outside. A lot of local artisan jewelry, earthenware, herbs, decorative accents, clothing, shoes, handbags and wallets. You name it. Be pleasantly surprised! P.S. No umbrellas!!!! No kidding!
