History And Background

1810 Heritage HouseLogo

1810 Heritage House

1810 Heritage House is a quaint collection of four rustic chalets that were once the workers’ living quarters of a Dutch Colonial coconut plantation belonging to one of the last Dutch Governors of Malacca. The chalets are collectively known as 1810 Heritage House due to the magical and therapeutic Neem trees found on the common grounds of this homestead together with the humongous Ketapang trees, coconut trees, mango trees, frangipanis, ixoras and the odd kelor tree.

The chalets were built around what used to be the supervisor’s quarters which was unfortunately badly damaged during the Japanese occupation. The supervisor’s quarters which still occupies the same site was rebuilt sometime after the second world war. Today it houses the reception lobby for 1810 Heritage House, a boutique gift shop, a central kitchen and staff quarters. Miraculously through the vestiges of time all the chalets, that were once the original staff quarters, have survived. Through a very painstaking process and without sacrificing the old world charm of a bygone era, the chalets were delicately restored and refurbished to offer guests some form of modern amenities such as air-conditioning and hot water showers. In doing so a lot of care was taken to use recycled timber for the roof trusses and even the Marseille roof tiles originally from France were salvaged from a Catholic church. A pool and giant trampoline were also added for recreational purposes.

What is however appealing about the whole concept of 1810 Heritage House is the cross breeze blowing from the coastal areas or the interiors of Melaka and the rustling of leaves from the many trees around which by itself envelops one with an immense sense of peace, serenity and tranquility.The cool shade from the numerous trees at 1810 Heritage House offer many a weary traveller a place to seek shelter and solace from the sultry afternoon sun of historical Melaka.The Cocos, Ketapang, Kemboja and Ixora all distinctly unique have been named according to the trees already found on the grounds of 1810 Heritage House. Interestingly enough, all four chalets have their own unique characteristics and personalities in terms of size, layout, furniture and niche areas for personal rest and recreation.

Chalet Types

All chalets have their own unique characteristics and personalities in terms of size, layout, furniture and niche areas for personal rest and recreation. Each chalet contains a spacious king-sized bed, complete with a thin veil-like mosquito netting, which settles on the bed like cool mist does on a hill, guaranteed to keep mosquitoes and (ahem) prying kids away.

Children are able to run around, while parents watch at the side while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea generously supplied by the kitchen while enjoying the cool, Malaccan breeze.
