4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here with a family of 9 people Jan. 2015. We had a two bedroom condo, across the hall from another 2 bedroom condo. Each condo is a slightly different layout and decorated differently, so unless you request a specific unit, you don’t know what you will get. My in-laws have stayed at this property multiple times (and visit Maine... More

We stayed here from December 30-January 3 and had a delightful stay. The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful every time I went in. The housekeeping staff always left a note stating when they would check back with us and the room was very clean. We stayed here years ago and will definitely stay again. We love the... More

We have stayed at VBTS four times and have enjoyed our stay each time. All suites are equipped with full kitchens, living rooms, TVs, laundry facilities,and a balcony or patio. Some units have 1 bedroom, others have multiple. They are all individually owned and therefore decorated differently - some have more of a "beachy" theme while others are more "homey."... More

When we first arrived we told the young lady at the desk that the room we had booked was too small for our needs because of a family dinner. We were switched to a better room at no charge in a mere five minutes.

This time however we stayed in room 6A and we were a little disappointed. It was December and the unit is on the first floor... More

We love it here! The view of the water is awesome, the condos are nicely furnished, and the location is excellent! The fitness room could use a new elliptical machine at some point, but it's a very minor issue. We will be back for sure!

Have stayed here many times over a lot of years. These are condos not hotel rooms or suites. They all are individually owned and placed in the rental pool so each unit is different so it is of great help that pictures of the units are available. All are totally equipped, real appliances, dishes, pot and pans, washer and dryer,... More
