“There's no place like home!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Normally we would stay in a hotel or motel which would consist of 1 room with a bed in it and a separate bathroom. This was like staying in a home. We had a suite which consisted of 2 bedrooms, one of which had its own separate bathroom, a kitchen (which had all utensils, dishes, glasses and pots and pans), dining room, living room, washer & dryer, and a 2nd bathroom. It was perfect for 2 couples travelling together as it gave plenty of privacy. There was a nice patio and the amenities that the hotel provided was great. The indoor pool was wonderful as well as the hot tub. We went with one of their specials which also gave us a $30/couple coupon towards a dinner at 3 different restaurants of our choice as well as a $12/couple towards a breakfast at a nice, cozy restaurant not far away. As it was the off season the price we paid for this all was amazing. I would highly recommend this place. When applying for the reservation you have the option of choosing what room you would like by touring through their list. The pictures aren't lying either. It made out stay their special. Nice area as well. Thanks.

Room Tip: You have options and the pictures online make it easy. If you like to swim in the indoor pool pick a...

Best place we've ever stayed. Accommodations were excellant. Good value for your money. We definately plan to stay there again. Staff were also wonderful. The only minus for us was with Hurricane Sandy approaching, we had to head back home.

I rented unit 14 with two beds and two baths...the gas fireplace kept me warm on this cold Autumn day and the whole unit was tastefully decorated in a beach theme. Kitchen comes with cookie sheets, baking dishes and plenty of dishes, cups, and silverware. Staff from the front desk and maintenance staff were very helpful. I will definitely be back. Hubby was very impressed and said it was a great pick.

Everything was as we remembered from twenty years ago. The rooms were comfortable, bright, well furnished,clean and very relaxing. We were able to take a trip to the beach and along the shoreline have lunch and still be back for a late dinner within a mile of the hotel. Since we were only staying one night the location was perfect. I can not say enough about the people who work there they were so friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable for the condo and all the extras. We are talking about bringing the rest of the family back to Village by the Sea.

This stay was a perfectly positive experience - from booking, to checking in, and extending the stay a few times because Sandy killed our plans for travelling to Connectieds cut. The desk personnel, room cleaning girl and maintenance guy all contributed to this.
The housing unit (12E) is comfortable and well equiped, beds are comfortable, the view from the balcony wonderful.
The ammenities - outdoor pool, indoor hot pool and hot tube, some excercise equipment are functional, though not extensive.
The location is central enough for day visits to Boston, MA; Portland ME and the Kittery Outlet Malls if you cannot find enough to stay busy in the immediate are!
The overall impression - the facilities are excellent. The personnel make it even better!

The rooms are condo-style and allow room for you and your family to spread out. The decor is calming and modern, and the furniture and beds are comfortable. Lots of amenity options, and for a good price (especially off-season). Employees are helpful. Shower could be a little bigger.

we have stayed a few times at Village By The Sea but this last time was the best, always clean with activities for the kids this time we decided to spend a little more and get a top floor unit (8H) it was the nicest unit we had stayed in thus far, every unit is decorated by the owners and has it's own charm, but everything from the furniture to the flat screen TV's to the King bed and decoration in this unit was a notch above the rest, we stayed for 1 week and as always the proximity to the beach and shopping is a definite plus. The view from the top floor was trully amazing and we simply coundn't get enough of it, we now regret not spending a little more for the view the last 2 times.

The service is very consistent and the value is amazing.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the Top floor in the Bobolink area, they have the best view. i stayed in Room 8H...
