My family and I attended a ball there. The mansion is super elegant inside and out. Inside are gorgeous,huge crystal chandeliers. Outdoors are beautiful fountains and a sprawling lawn right on the ocean.

Rosecliff is just beautiful and the grounds overlooking the ocean are breathtaking. The Easter Egg Roll is always a lot of fun and it's neat to eat brunch in the ballroom which is typically roped off for tours. Rosecliff does not have a kid audio...More

Lovely property with picturesque gardens overlooking the ocean. We visited with our 17 month old son, and the staff were very kind and accommodating.
