Had a ver great time in the villa. Situated a 5 minute walk from the bus that takes you free of charge to city center. Also about 5 minute walk to shopping. Nice pool in a very nice garden overseen by Felix the cat. Can really recommend this place

Beautiful place to stay. Only a thirty minute stroll into the heart of Fremantle. Thoughtful decor creating a very serene ambience. Hosts were lovely.

“Perfect holiday, staying at Chester Villa was ideal for our needs.”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We found Chester Villa on Holiday Lettings, it read perfect for our needs, we were not disappointed. The villa is clean, comfortable and in an ideal location. It is easy walking distance to the beautiful beaches of S. Freo. The free CAT buses to Freo. Run from the bottom of the road and are every 15 mins, perfect for catching the train into Perth City. You are placed to get the best that WA has to offer. Jennifer and Bob are great hosts, ensuring you have every thing you need and there to make recommendations. They made us feel really welcome, loved Chester Villa and Fremantle. Thanks Jen & Bob

“Home away from Home”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Freemantle was to be the relaxing point in our holiday after a road trip from Adelaide across the Nullabor Plain we would need three days to just unwind. Imagine our excitement when we were shown our little "oasis" by our charming host Jen. It was a warm and comfortable rental with every necessary inclusion. Jen was the perfect host leaving no stone unturned with respect to local restaurants/transport and shopping facilities all of which are within walking distance which meant I could leave the car at home.
All in all we had a marvellous time and would strongly recommend this rental

“South Fremantle comfortable accomodation”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Jennifer and family who live at the front of this Villa were most hospitable and pointed us out the local free bus into Fremantle, SBH hotel for meals, local grocery shopping and some of the features of the local area. We found a local Bakery with excellent bread and light desserts. The Ships and Wrecks museum gives a fascinating history of European exploration of Australia 's Western coastline. Even my wife not a real history buff was surprised at the detail and items on display. This museum is in my opinion worth a visit , especially for visitors with limited time.

“Wonderful pretty cottage near South Beach Fremantle run by lovely family”
Reviewed January 31, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

Chester Villa was even better than the photos showed, with a pool too and Jennifer and Bob who run it are quite charming and friendly. It looks inside like a Provençal cottage in France, in wonderful blues and light colours and spacious. Access to Fremantle is by a free Cat bus just round the corner and South Beach and the wonderful Indian Ocean is a 5 minute walk down Scott Street. Rottnest Island is just across the water from Fremantle too-paradise! Restaurants and cafés in Fremantle are good and access to Perth city life is a train ride away stopping also at Cottesloe beach,Subiaco shops and Claremont en route. I'll definitely be returning. Normally I stay all the time with friends, but decided to have a week in South Freo near the beach.

“Would recommend for couples”
Reviewed January 23, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Yes, very much to recommend Chester Villa.
So pleased that we found such a lovely cottage, in such a good location, with a swimming pool as well.
It does have a "quirky" bathroom, otherwise it would be 5 out of 5.
But what it does have in abundance is charm, lots of space for a couple but most importantly of all is very considerate owners who, whilst there when you need them, give you lots of "space". Yet, when you "engage" with them could not be more friendly, helpful ....and fun!
