The house was not really worth the 300rs per person, run down and not well looked after. Thought the water falls out the back were a nice surprise.

Took us a good while to work out where this house was. When eventually we did, and paid the disinterested staff the entry fee (was this because we didn't speak French?), we moved to the house. There was one guide who had already started showing...More

Beautiful history behind the house with a small hike down to see the waterfall. A bit slippery however easy to find your way down and up.

This small wooden cottage is difficult to find and not worth visiting. For R300, one can also visit a so called “waterfall”: meaning crowling 15 minutes in the mud through jungle to see... ehh... a water stream?

Currently Eureka is not so much a tourist attraction as a tourist curiously. And for that reason alone you should definitely go and visit it. And while you’re there, give them double the entrance price so they can put it towards the urgently needed renovations....More

It is a very well preserved colonial house. It is nice to visit the rooms and see how people lived back in time. The gardens are pretty and secluded. You can have a walk to the the waterfalls, where there are two cascades. The path...More
