"The nachos, cactus cake with ice cream and frozen drinks were so yummy. We loved walking around and looking at all the cacti, especially with the flowers at the moment! The staff were friendly and approachable." — Dana V.

My husband and I decided if we were going to get married this would be the place! We got the pleasure of fitting in quite a few little road trips up prior to our date to organise things and visiting multiple times to enjoy the sunshine and every time was a great experience. This place is a must visit and if you get the chance to hold an event here you will not be disappointed. Julie, Jim and John are so lovely and accomodating and made all our dreams come true. Cannot wait to continue to visit for decades to come! Cannot thank them enough for creating such a beautiful space and opening it up to the public to share the stunning landscape.

Congratulations and thank you so much for this lovely review. We absolutely love hearing stories like this and can't wait to have you back again over the coming years as the gardens continue to grow. See you for a cheeky margarita in the sun soon! Julie, Jim and John :)
