About Roberta Scott

This was a family home for many years until our family became too big to fit in 3 bedrooms... we have 6 children now. The house was completely renovated in 1997 and then again in 2016. We still love it! We have rented through VRBO many times and have a understanding of what makes a vacation rental convenient and a family trip memorable.

Roberta Scott purchased this house in 1996

Such a charming home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was perfect for a family wedding at the Captain's House. Perfect location, within walking distance of Chester waterfront, shops, restaurants, Captain's House, church hall, etc. The house had loads of room for our party of 6 and all the features you'd need for a comfortable stay. I absolutely loved the character features kept to reflect the age of the house, but with modern updates. Photos don't do it justice! Such accommodating owners, appreciate the booking! If I ever get the chance to stay in Chester again, I'd be back at the Turquoise Villa.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here with four other family members for a 3 day stay and we all thought the house had wonderful charm with just the right combination of modern conveniences and rustic appeal. Lots of bathrooms and good space made everyone feel comfortable. The kitchen is very nice and we felt this rental had great value. Highly recommended!

A Lovely Home in a Beautiful Seaside Town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this big home in the town of Chester was a great one. The home was spacious enough for our family of 7. It was a nice central location for visiting Lunenberg, Halifax, and Peggy's Cove. The town of Chester itself was amazing. We enjoyed walking to the ocean, looking at the yachts, marvelling at the architecture of the homes, swimming at the seaside community pool, and eating at the Rope Loft. All in all you will be pleasantly surprised by this home and town.
