We enjoyed a full week at Village by the Sea with a family of 5 adults with an additional one for some of the nights. The condo was clean and spacious and the layout was very nice. We did have a couple issues, but they were taken care of within minutes of the time that we notified the front desk.... More

I have visited this property many times and i am never disappointed! The Hotel Staff is always very friendly and answers any questions. Especially the housekeeping staff. I was traveling with family and everyday we needed extra towels and coffee and they would always meet our needs. The unit we stayed in was very clean and stocked for my family... More

Every time we visit we are very pleased with the accommodations, facility & staff. Having a completely furnished unit made our trip very comfortable. The best part is having full laundry & kitchen available. We stayed for 3 nights and only ate out once. The unit was perfect!

Location was great. Layout was pretty good, unless you have little ones. The bedrooms are not close to each other, so could be a problem with little ones. Overall, it was decent when it comes to layout, space and location, but our problem was the unit had a very strong cat urine odor in all the rooms. The air conditioning... More

After reading positive reviews and seeing pictures of beautiful rooms we chose to stay here for our family trip in June. We were very disappointed by our unit as it was very poorly decorated and in need of general maintenance such as painting, water spots on ceiling and just updating. The drapes were horrible and old and we had to... More

I would have given this a higher rating but the noise above was loud and I think that's a common complaint. I would get a top one next time just to avoid the noise. I love that the indoor pool contained a kiddie pool at the entrance, wish it had been bigger but the 4x5 foot small pool at 1.5... More

A real gem, close to the sea, restaurants and outlet shopping. Large suites with all the comforts of home. Our unit also had a fireplace to add a little charm for an evening by the fire to relax after a day at the beach.

Village by the Sea is a GREAT home base for your visit to Maine Vacationland! We often choose a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath Condo. These are indvidually owned and each decorated in the owners taste. Full kitchens, a dining room, living room and either a patio or balcony off the living room or master bedroom. My in-laws popped in for a... More

We've been coming to the area for 20 years and have stayed in many various locations but Village by the Sea was the best place yet...friendly, clean, spacious and comfortable. Best mattress ever slept on in a hotel. Large window areas to let the sun shine in. We will be coming back!

Every single thing about village by the sea was wonderful. We had many out of town guests and the accommodations were perfect. We had an outdoor pool party the day before the wedding which worked out great. There was a lawn next to it where we were able to set up our corn hole game. The wedding itself---- spectacular.
