“So Accomodating & Comfortable !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Returning to Village by the Sea is always a treat. It has so many beautiful units, with all the comforts of home. And the rates are much more reasonable than motels in the area. The owners of the unit we occupied certainly thought of everything in furnishing and decorating it. Having a fully equipped kitchen enabled us to bring groceries and prepare some of our meals. It's location is perfect for the view, and is in a peaceful setting, and close to the indoor pool and hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay there, and hope to return again at our next opportunity.

Village by the Sea has a great website (vbts.com) that provides lots of information allowing you to view each available unit, and to choose one that most suits you. Their communication with guests is very helpful, before, during, and even after your stay there. Another plus is it's close proximity to the Ogunquit and Wells beaches, shopping, and tourist attractions. For just a brief get-a-way, or lengthy a stay, we highly recommend booking a unit at this location.

Room Tip: Suites at the end of each building have more window area. Those that are in the 'Avocet' bu...

Have been staying at VBTS for 5 years. Every stay is a pleasant experience. Staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. Rooms are comfortable, well equipped. There is always a special rate available. If a piece of equipment is not working, it will be fixed immedia

We spent 4 days here and had two different couples join us for two days each. All of us were wowed by the accomodations and loved the views of the ocean from the balconies. Waking up to see the sunrise over the ocean was spectacular! Off-season prices can't be beat; staff was attentive to all of our questions and requests. Housekeeping staff went beyond expectations to serve. My sister suggested that we make this an annual tradition.

Room Tip: If you want the best water views, choose a room on one of the top two floors.

Pleasantly surprised! Have stayed at other resorts in the area, and wanted to have a view of the marsh this time and what a beautiful view it was to wake up to! VBTS was very responsive in our requests for information and gave us a great deal!
The suite was very roomy, comfortable, clean with a well-stocked kitchen. Beautiful decor, and our unit was supplied with games, movies and reading material for all. Will come back next year with extended family!

We decided at last minute to spend a night in Wells and looked for either a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit or 2 separate rooms. Found a great rate for Village by the Sea. The unit was very spacious. The living room/dining room were very comfortable. Large well equipped kitchen and unit also included a washer/dryer. Really a great place for a family vacation.

Room Tip: Higher floors would give better view toward ocean

Village by the Sea is the perfect place for a family vacation. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that was our home away from home. We really didn't want to leave. It's perfect for a family because you have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and a full kitchen. We stayed in February, and we could see the shore front from our front door. We took a short drive to Kennebunkport for the day, and everything is just as beautiful as the summer - just quieter :) I'm ready to go back!

Wonderful place to stay with a family. Very relaxed and comfortable. The unit had everything we needed to cook a great dinner. Kids hung out at the pool while the adults relaxed and got food on the table. Have stayed there twice. Will be back anytime we're visiting southern Maine or Boston area.
