We are very happy to hear that we are your home away from home. Do you have a specific unit that you stay in? If so let us know which unit it is. As you know, our units are individually owned therefore making the set up and decor different in each unit. This can sometimes be fun as guests have certainly found specific units that they absolutely love to reserve year after year while others like to try out new units each stay. Have a wonderful day and we look forward to your 2023 visit. Jill

This is our 2nd year staying at Village by the Sea and it is consistently a wonderful option for this area. Aside from a great location to beaches, restaurants and the hectic Ogunquit area, the units are immaculate and there are various price points to choose from. Our most recent stay was a premium level, 3rd floor unit with a fabulous view of the ocean. The unit had all stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops with every kitchen item you could possibly need for your stay! Everything was high quality. Having 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms for our group of 3 was just perfect and offered privacy as well. We did experience some issues with the TV in the family room not being able to connect to cable service, but it did not really affect our overall stay at all. Village by the Sea is a definite must if you are looking for a great place to stay in this area. We loved it!!

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your accommodations and the convenience to many wonderful locations here on the coast. As for the TV's we just added a new cable and internet package for all of our units. So far it has been a fantastic upgrade however there have been a few hiccups. For example, now that all but the living room TV's are streaming we have had times when this app is down and unavailable to guests.

We were travelling with our team and needed a place to rest. We could have settled with just about anything, but as soon as we stepped into 11H we immediately felt rejuvenated by the luxurious and spacious atmosphere. Highly recommend for business and personal/family trips in this area!!

We reserved 11E for just a one night visit but wished we could’ve stayed longer. Unit was clean, comfortable, beds were very comfortable. Very nice accommodations and will definitely request 11E again. Front desk staff was very nice as well, great experience!

Hi Amy, thank you for taking the time to review on your most recent stay. Our housekeeping and front desk teams are amazing. Unit 11E is definitely a fantastic unit. All of our units are individually owned and therefore no two units are absolutely alike. If you have a unit that you have really enjoyed, please be sure to request it for your next stay. Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you again soon. Jill

We had such a wonderful time at Village by the Sea! Our family of three (two adults and a toddler) had a suite on the third floor with a nice water view. The place was very clean and comfortable. Good selection of dishes/utensils/pots/etc to use for cooking, full fridge, washer/dryer in unit, balcony with table and chairs, and plenty of space for the child to run around and have fun. The price per night was also very reasonable especially in these inflationary times. Would recommend to anyone for a nice stay.

We come here all the time. We usually love it here. But this time was very different. Our room had old dirty furniture in it. Faucet in bathroom constantly dripped, paint peeling off walls in bathroom, shower very low water pressure, TV in bedroom difficult to use and kept buffering so couldn't watch a show easily. Housekeeping never came to empty trash. We prefer first floor, but had to take a 2nd floor because they said they were completely booked. While we were there the vacancy sign was up the whole time and there were sections with no cars parked by units. We feel like we were lied to and given the dump room. We are sad because we have always had a great experience before and never had a stay like this time.

We spent 6 nights at the Village by the Sea. When reservation was made, the person I dealt with, Halley, was EXTREMELY helpful. There are no elevators and I have a problem with stairs. She set us up in a 2 bedroom suite, locked the smaller bedroom, which we didn't need anyway and had the use of the rest of the suite. This suite was on a walk in level with no interior stairs. We also were only charged for a one bedroom suite because technically that's what we had. Two bathrooms, full kitchen and plenty of space. We reserved the same room for next year already. I highly recommend this place.

Thank you for your review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our units are the largest in the area and like you said the convenience of having a full kitchen in your unit means a place to heat up leftovers from all the great restaurants in the area.
