This was our third time vacationing at Village by the Sea. It's a great location for our family and there are lots of things to do for multiple generations (12 to 80 this year). The.staff are super friendly, accommodating and helpful. This is a terrific value.

We have been staying at the Village By the Sea for over 20 years, and we come back every time! This year alone, 2014, I have been here 3 times, and plan on coming back in October. My extended family and I enjoy the convenience of being close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. It always feels like home, and... More

We have stayed here two years in a row as our visiting family loves to go to Maine. The accommodations are perfect for us. I believe most or all are two bedroom two bath units. They are all individually owned so they are all a little different. If you are on a lower level you can only hear the people... More

Every time I have stayed here it's been fabulous! Each condo is designed differently and it's fun to see how each one is done. Staff is friendly, amenities are a nice plus, although having someone on site for the arcade games would be nice....they tend to eat money....having to then go to the reception desk for a return on funds....

Was there last week 8/9-8/16, 2014, for the second time staying at this resort. Found a wonderful suite with a wonderful view. Our suite this year was 110% better than last years outdated room. Staff helpful and friendly as always, our housekeepers were very kind and efficient, pools were clean and enjoyable. The only reason I could not rate this... More

Went to a wedding at this resort, and stayed for 2 nights with my parents. This place has a lot of personality. All the suites are decorated differently but they all have great amenities and are kept up very well. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. You're right in the midst of great beaches, restaurants, and bars but still... More

we've stayed at VBTS for a few years now. On prior stays, we've had noisy upstairs tenants that disturbed our sleep, but not this time. The units are older and the décor is outdated, but the unit met our needs. We basically just sleep there and eat breakfast, then head to the beach. If that's what you are planning on,... More

Overall the Village by the Sea was a great place to stay. The condo unit was a perfect size for mine and my brothers family with 2 bedrooms (one for each family), a big living room with a huge sectional couch that we could all easily fit on. The unit was not luxurious but it was clean and sizable. We... More

Rented a 2BR, 2 bath condo for 7 nights with my husband and three young kids. Condo was clean, beds were comfortable and the kitchen, while a little sparse, did have plenty for me to make meals. Appliances were on the older side but worked very well and the plastic balcony furniture was cheap (units are individually owned, so this... More

Would not recommend overall. Location is good. On the trolley line and across from a coffee place. The unit itself was pretty bad. Peeling paint, musty moldy furniture and overall pretty dirty even for a beach place. Overall pretty run down although the staff was nice. Remember that these are apartment type units and if you are on the bottom... More
