It has been our fifth straight year at VBTS and it has been a perfect five years. We stay a week at a time every summer and look forward to it all year. From the time you check in you are treated so nicely and the grounds and rooms are lovely. When I check out, I leave a deposit for... More

Got up to maine after being on the road a couple of days&making various stops, have to say it was the perfect end to our trip! Village by the Sea is perfect--lots of space, very clean, friendly staff. Close enough to the ocean to feel like you're really in a beach town! The only downside so far has been that... More

My family has stayed at this complex for years. Overall we've been very satisfied with the accommodations. This trip however I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the master bedroom's bed ensemble. As you know the most intimate part of a hotel stay is the cleanliness of the bed you'll be resting in. From across the room it looks beautiful... More

This is our third time staying at VBS for an entire week. We have stayed even for a weekend in the same unit we love it's 15F . It definitely feels like home the decor is nice and cozy. It is on the third floor no elevator is really the only draw back. We live the balcony deck and the... More

We came here for our annual vacation to Maine, and it was one of the worst experiences in Maine I've ever had. First of all, the staff was rude and not very helpful. The pools were grimy and tasted like salt water even though the pool guy said it was a chlorine pool. Inside the rooms, the furniture and amenities... More

Recently spent 8 nights in unit 14E--a top floor condo which I have stayed in twice in the past and was very happy with. One advantage of a top floor condo is less noise than the other floors, but that proved to be untrue this stay. I was horrified and saddened by the noise and obviously 'shady' activities of my...

I was scheduled to attend a meeting at Village by the Sea and decided to come a day early. I have never stayed at a Condo Rental property. What a pleasant surprise. It was just like being in a huge apartment, not a cramped and ill equipped hotel room. The place was huge and had all the comforts of home.... More

The Condo was very clean and well decorated with two bathrooms. The front desk was very helpful in answering any questions. Although the weather was terrible we really enjoyed our time here. There were more than enough Tvs and games to keep everyone occupied.

A wonderful place to stay. Clean, quiet. Excellent for a family. Have been staying here for years. Great staff. John is the best! The pools are great. I like the indoor one. The gym is clean and modern. I love the fact that the condos have washers and dryers. Full kitchens. Can stay a day or a week. Lovely place

This place was great!!! Why stay in a single room of a three star motel when you can have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and dinning room for the same price or less? We stayed on the second floor facing the ocean. Spacious, clean and comfortable, and close to most if not all top rated restaurants in Wells,... More
