We visited when the restaurant and house were booked for a private function; therefore, we were unable to have lunch there. Had a look around the house and gardens only. It's a lovely house. Reasonably well-preserved. Very peaceful. You need to go on a small...More

Old colonial style wooden residence situated near Moka. All original features and furniture worth seeing. Visited as part of a cruise shore excursion. Served local snacks and drinks at end of house and garden tour.

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.

Maison Eureka is much more than "just" a grand colonial estate. First it was the beutiful garden with heart shaped planting that immediately touched my husband's and my soul. The estate itself has probably been refurbished, for it is in excellent condition, giving a good...More
