If you want to improve your understanding of Sandakan's history, it is worth visiting here. We passed here when we were walking on historical sites. There are many introductions to the Keith family in the former residence, but the most interesting thing is that the local history and the Keith family are introduced graphically. You can also enjoy the beautiful scenery above. In addition, you can go to the tea house for a drink after climbing more than 100 steps (note that there are not only 100 steps). It doesn't seem real enough here. My husband and I were walking in the former residence, while the tour guide was sitting outside. I think we may have spent 10 minutes here. If we can choose once, we won't spend money to come here. No money will be wasted here.
Located in the jungle, the environment is very quiet and elegant
Agnes Keith’s Former Residence: The small and exquisite museum climbed up the steps, climbed to the top of a hill, and came to the Agnes Keith’s former residence. This is a two-story small building. The buildings are all wooden structures, and the exterior is pure white. The scenery here is quiet, and the small building looks very quiet under the cover of trees. The interior decoration of the house is exquisite, the furnishings are tasteful, with a strong European style. From here, you can also overlook the city scenery of Sandakan. Looking at the scenery below the mountain, people can't help but imagine the writers writing novels here while staring at the port of Sandakan. The people of Sandakan are very grateful to this writer. Because of her novel "The Country Under the Wind", the city of Sandakan has attracted the attention of the world. In fact, this small building was already dilapidated at the beginning, but it was restored after restoration. The newly renovated two-story villa is now a museum and opened to the public in 2004. We can not only see the general scene of the writer's creation at the time, but also some display of antique furniture. There is a special display gallery on the first floor with many pictures of Case when he was young. There is also a special audio-visual room in the small building to introduce the glorious life of Case for visitors. The Keith House is open to visitors from 9 am to 5 pm. In addition, it is not very far from the city center. It is recommended to reach it on foot. It only takes about 10 minutes from the city center.
We came here after going to the British Tea House because they are very close. Personally, my husband and I are not at all attracted by the scenery here. It doesn't seem real enough here. My husband and I were walking in the former residence, while the tour guide was sitting outside. I think we may have spent 10 minutes here. If we can choose once, we won't spend money to come here. No money will be wasted here.
The former residence of Agnes Keith is a large two-story villa. This villa is designed in European style. There are many plants around it. There are many people who take care of it here, which is shocking.
Nice quiet place by the gardens overlooking the sea. Great place for afternoons. Do order the English tea set and watch the afternoon go by. After that walk around the museum next to it.
Visited this house as part of our heritage walk. Brilliant museum full of photos, stories and memorabilia.Well worth a visit and you can use your ticket ti visit Sabah Museum
The place was well kept and clean. A quick historical tour which doubles as a leisurely stroll after afternoon tea at the English Tea House.
This wooden house has been restored and turned into a heritage museum house known as Agnes Newton Keith House. The house provides lots of information during the administration of British North Borneo...
We walked from our hotel and climbed the 100 steps up to the Agnes Keith House. A very attractive looking house, the interior is very interesting with lots of information boards.
