Spent the weekend at VBTS where my daughter s wedding was held there. Everything went without a hitch. The " beauty room" for the girls,function hall, lawn, gazebo, hours d'ouveurs hour,reception... all overseen by Jill and her staff from specifics bythe bride and groom made a special day a smooth reality. Our two bedroom condo was spacious. A welcoming register... More

They are trying. Much of the soft goods in the apartment we stayed in were newish. But the fixtures are really cheap. The aparments are roomy though if you have a family. Biggest issue...the wifi SUCKS! Barely a signal, came and went. I called the front desk, answer was they are fixing it next year. But if I wanted a... More

My family and I have been going to VBTS for years. I would go with my parents before I got married, then once I got married, my husband and I, along with our son, stayed there. We have always had the best time, best service and best of everything. The last three times though, have been sub par, with our... More

The rooms were very clean, bright, spactious, and had a great view of the marsh from our... More

Another year at VBTS. We are return guests and the facility was as we expected. The space was comfortable and the kitchen area is adequate for a light breakfast, which is all we had planned to use it for. The curtains in the bedrooms are light filtering, and there is a skylight in the living room, so plan on rising... More

VBTS was a great place. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was great with room to move and cook. The view was spectacular. Love the balcony. We sat out day and night having coffee, wine. Can't wait to back next year.

Wow! We were so confortable. A great surprise considering that we reserved almost at the last minute. These are appartments, litterally. Everything was there so we could make our own meals, so we did. The only issue was the wi-fi always disconnecting, probably overflooded.
