Inside Villa Sentosa

  • The rooms of Villa Sentosa are connected by a patio and an open courtyard, which ensures that the residents and visitors get plenty of breezes even during summers.
  • The building is entirely made up of word and is raised from the ground level using stilts, which ensures that rodents and water flooding does not affect the house.
  • Unfortunately, the kitchen has been damaged by termites, and hence, had to be renovated using the tiled floor.
  • Visitors are free to explore the rooms in the house, such as the guest room which is filled with antique furniture and crockery. 
  • The house also has a ‘wedding room’ which was used by young couples to stay before they moved out.
  • Villa Sentosa is full of antique furniture and vintage photographs from the family members of the house.
