Village By The Sea is our first choice when staying overnight or for a week. Make sure you ask for a view overlooking the marsh with a charming row of beach cottages in the background and the Atlantic Ocean behind that! Very homey and you will save lots of money by cooking a few meals in the modern kitchen with...

Booked last minute at VBTS for a quick get away. Their off season deals can't be beat, for a full condo. We really enjoy being able to come 'home' after a day of sightseeing, shopping, etc...where we can relax and be comfortable.

Perfect weekend getaway - and kids were entertained! Condo in building 1 was huge - we couldve slept 12! --and well equipped with coffee, laundry room, 2 bathrooms - tons of space for everyone. Even in winter- the deck at sunrise was the perfect spot for our first cup of coffee! Indoor pool and jacuzzi was major hit with kids...

Definitely a great place to stay with family or a romantic getaway. Rooms are spacious and have everything you need besides your food. My only complaint is there was no parking in front of my building when returning from dinner because there is a wedding being held and it was pouring rain. Had to park in another location and got...

Our apologies for you having to walk in the rain and the lack of parking. With the amount of snow we have received this winter it certainly does a number on the parking spots that we have available. We hope that you will come back and visit us soon. Let us know when you plan to come for your next...

We have been going to Village By The Sea for our anniversary now for several years. We get a half suite (they lock one of the bedrooms and the other bathroom) which allows us to make some meals and go out for others. We can watch the tide come into the marsh and can see the sunrise over the distant...

The facility is very nice and the staff is always pleasant and accommodating. I miss having the room made up. Also I would suggest telling families with children that running and moving furniture late at night and early AM is not acceptable.

Hello and thank you for your review. In 2016 in an effort to keep our rates low as well as conserve on water and energy we switched our daily housekeeping service to every other day.
