“Agnes Newton Keith Home”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

You go back in time and wish you are living in that era. It is nostalgic, historical and emotional. It is Sandakan history, I highly recommend the book "When Three Came Home".

“Beautiful house in poor maintenace”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

This place could be z pearl of Sandakan's historical buildings. Unfortunately it present condition is far from the state it use to be during Agnes Keith's House. But is a must visit place - to remember her work and to understand why she loved Borneo so much.

“Not much there apart from a house”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

If you're interested in history then go, but otherwise it's not really worth the visit. She was an amazing woman, no doubt, but not sure it will add to your holiday to make te trip.
