Villa Woodbine was such a gorgeous place for a wedding reception! It is an old Spanish mansion that sits on well landscaped grounds. You get the entire property for your event so it is private and the food and drinks are awesome - much better than traditional wedding meals. The pictures are specail too due to the character and originality of the property. If you don't want a boring, plain ball room, this is a great alternative.

This place is ok.
The house is nice looking at night when lit up, but leaves much to be desired in the way of "bang for your buck".
The sales staff tries to upsell every little thing and demeans your personal taste if you don't go along for the ride of getting the most expensive option for everything.
The food is decent and the facility is average.
What charm the facility could have is lost in its lack of size and function.
One bathroom for all the guests is inadequate, especially when placed behind the band. Hope no one with sensitive ears has to go during the reception.
Electrical, lighting, and "facility" limitations become the least of your worries when they shut you don't before 11pm due to sound ordinances.
My bride started off viewing this place as her dream because of its first impression. That impression quickly wore off. It was unfortunate that we realized this after making the deposit. Any charm and care the staff had towards us was gone as well at that point. We were just another event and paycheck for them.
Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else if you want a lot for your special day while without feeling the squeeze of restrictions.

To all you brides - dont look anywhere else but Villa Woodbine! We didnt know about the villa till our wedding planner - Vanessa with Karma Goddes (THE BEST AROUND!!) introduced us to the villa! The villa is a private, elegant, romanitc, affordable, amazing, delicious venue. The staff is amazing, freindly and professional! We had many different ideas - such as a full gosple choir ( THANK YOU MIAMI MASS ) ! Needless to say our wedding was a show stopper even stopping traffic on bayshore drive! We didnt want our wedding to be in a box - hotels are boxes - we wanted to be private and just have our families thier - we wanted delicious food and drinks - and we wanted to be in budjet - VILLA WOODBINE DELIVERED!!!!! THANK YOU!!

Villa Woodbine is a very special place. My, now, husband & I had been to every other venue in south Florida & as soon as we found Villa Woodbine we knew it was perfect!
It has a beautiful house with several air conditioned rooms, a beautiful fountain courtyard & a stunning garden for your dinner. All of these make great settings for photos. There is a room for the bride to get ready with her girls right on the property, that was very nice! Bill Hansen is the exclusive caterer for Villa Woodbine. His food is excellent & he pays a lot of attention to detail.
There are two reasons I did not give them 5 stars though, 1. we were supposed to have valet parking & the valets did not show up at the last minute, so our guests had to walk through the rain, 2. they did not give the proper vegan meals to the guests I requested them for, including me, the bride.
It is a beautiful place with great service though & I highly recommend it if you want to have your wedding in a romantic, tropical dream house!
