Absolutely loved it. So spacious and clean and well stocked with amenities. We will be back again. So nice to have a home style unit versus a two bed hotel room. The indoor pool and hot tub were great and the sea air blowing in the patio door reminded us of home.

We've been to this resort at least 4 times now and we will continue to come here. The rooms are always so clean and very nice. The outdoor pool is great but the indoor pool is fantastic. With little kids, sometimes the beach/hot weather/sun is too much, the indoor pool and arcade make for a great day. The grills outside... More

Went with my wife for a weekend get-away and we loved it! Close to all the shops, beaches and restaurants! The staff were all so friendly and wanted to make sure you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. Our one bedroom suite had a full kitchen and two bathrooms. We went back in July with the family and the children loved the... More

Very clean and updated. We were on the second floor with a view of the marsh. We stayed one night and would recommend to others. The beds were comfortable one room had a queen and other had two twins. Parking was in front of the building. 2 pools and gym. The location is great.

We had a family wedding in Wells Maine recently. I believe 5-6 rooms were booked at this location. My understanding is that these are individual condos and each unit is furnished by the individual owners. It appears our owner had not been around for decades. The room was vintage 1960's decoration with very few improvements since then. The 2nd bedroom... More

We would like you to know that we conduct an annual inspection in which we provide the owner with feedback regarding the rentals for their units. Whenever possible it is encouraged that guests...

We stayed here last week on a last minute vacation and Village By The Sea was more than accommodating. The room felt just like home. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back next year. Thank you Village By The Sea for another memorable vacation!

E3 is dated and uncomfortable but was clean and served the purpose. We usually get a unit on the top floor because Usually you don't have to deal with a lot of noise and the view and the breeze on the balconies are wonderful. There are 2 pools, basket ball hoop, games and BBQ grill available. Its close to all... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We were told these condos were updated, quiet and beautiful. None of these things were true. We stayed on the 2nd floor of building 8 sandwiched between a loud party of ppl downstairs and a large family with children on the 3rd floor. The walls are paper thin and the insulation... More

If this is not what you received I sincerely apologize. As you may know all of our units are individually owned and therefore the reason why the décor differs... More
