We have stayed in the past with out issue or concern of cleanliness, this last trip, the pool was disgusting. Our Condo...I wish I asked for an "updated" condo, ours was out dated and smelled musty. The Condo itself was very clean, but an unpleasant odor.

Our yearly trip was terrific. It is a great place to get together with friends and family. The pool, the hot tub and game room give families and friends a place to just go and play on the grounds. There are plenty of restraunts, movies and shopping close by.

The apartment was comfortable and a good value. We got an apartment for the price of a hotel room. It was a little bit dated but definitely served it's purpose! The couch was a bit uncomfortable. (The cushions were falling into the pull out bed portion) But that was the only really negative thing and it didn't really bother us...

If you are traveling with small children and need space to spread out, then I recommend the Village by the Sea. The property is somewhat dated and old looking. Not a lot available in the kitchen in terms of wanting to cook a meal.

We have been coming to VBTS in the winter for many years. It is a good place for what our family needs. The kitchens are lacking in some respects (some units are short on pots and pans as well as plates etc.), but overall it is good enough. Unfortunately, the price has gone up a lot over the last couple...

We've been staying here for years, always at Thanksgiving. Great view of marsh. Laid back atmosphere. Conveniently located. A nice home away from home environment. Should have invested in a unit years ago...

Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time to visit. Over the years we have had more and more families use Village by the Sea as their home away from home for the holiday. Great spot to meet up with family and friends. Thank you for your review and we look forward to your next visit. Jill Robie Hotel & Conference Center...

We have been coming here since early 2000. We come usually in the cooler seasons, often for different holidays. Maine, and Village By The Sea, in the off season is just beautiful. The ocean, shops, restaurants are there to add to your great time. The location is wonderful, you are near everything you could desire. The units are all lovey,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very roomy two bedroom condo. We were quite comfortable. Furniture is older but met our needs. The condo was quiet and we were able to relax in peace. Convenient to ogunquit, York and Kennebunkport.
