This was our first stay at Villas by the Sea and we were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and smelled fresh. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. There is no beach at this location when the tide is in, but there is sandy space behind the rocks to sun and...

Nice mini suite with all the needed amenities for a weekend stay! The staff was a bit clueless on dining recommendations but spoke to other guests to get their experiences and suggestions. Enjoyed my stay, had a nice fitness room and cafe, we will return.

I believe this was our 4th year at the "Villas" for New Year's Eve golf and fun. This year we were 7 couples, some in one bedroom villas and a few in 2 bedroom villas. (other years were as many as 17 couples) We had an ocean view from our 2nd floor bedroom balcony and an easy walk to the...

We had our wedding on Driftwood Beach (the package provided by Villas by the Sea) and it worked out beautifully. I was a little concerned when I brought some of my own decorations, but Tammy handled it like a pro. When my friend sent a picture of the setup for my approval, I didn't have to make any changes. We...

My Husband and I wanted a small and private wedding. (elopement Style) So we decided to go to the beach and have a destination wedding. Tammy Young at Villa by the seas made this the easiest and the best decision we could have ever made. From the moment we contacted her she was helpful and accomodating and made the process...

My husband and I actually eloped over the weekend and I must say, I was VERY concerned and stressed out after having read some of the reviews over the past few months, but it was the complete opposite for my experience. The one bedroom villa was very nice with updated decor. There were no bed bugs or roach infestation. I...

My son got married on the beach at the villas. Beautiful beach setting for a wedding. We all stayed here too since it was a destination wedding. A cool place very quiet with beautiful views off our balcony. Our room although was clean, was old. Apparently all the villas are privately owned and managed by the hotel. My sons villa...

The unit we had was owned by an individual so the decor was selected by her. Interesting with her collection of beach like possessions. The woods around the place abound with squirrels and birds - a very natural setting. We could walk to the beach from our unit. Check in was a breeze. We should have eaten at the restaurant...
