SEA COLONY WEST: SUNNY LAKESIDE RETREAT

Bethany Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

In real estate they say ''location, location, location'' and we have it in spades! Located on Teal Lake with water views from any vantage point and every window including the kitchen's. The heated pool and main Tennis Center are steps away. We're less than 3/4 of a mile from Sea Colony's private beach, close enough to walk or take advantage of Sea Colony's shuttle (in season only) that makes frequent stops by our parking lot. The town of Bethany Beach is only a mile away with it's many shops, restaurants and boardwalk along the beach. For even closer shopping and dining, the Sea Colony Marketplace is just a short walk away.

Conveniently located on the first floor level, this Veranda-style unit with wrap-around screened porch provides ideal southern exposure for striking sunrise and sunset views over the pines. Professionally redecorated, upgrades include, but not limited to: a new fireplace, Sony 40 inch flat screen TV and Nintendo Wii in the living room. Each bedroom also has a flat screen LCD TV as well as premium box springs/mattresses. Laptop users will appreciate our password protected wireless router for internet reception inside the condo or on the screened porch. Wi-Fi is provided by Sea Colony on their beach and at the westside's Freeman Fitness Center.

In addition for being known as a world class tennis and beach resort, Sea Colony West is beautifully landscaped in a quiet park-like setting with abundant shaded walking/biking paths among it's many lakes. This is a real plus during the summer's hot sunny days for those that enjoy a nice walk or run.

The private beach & tennis community features an unmatched offering of amenities including 12 pools (2 indoors), 34 tennis courts (12 Har-Tru clay & 4 indoors), two Fitness Centers (with indoor and outdoor pools, weight room, saunas, whirlpool and gym), children's programs, community shuttle, hiking and bike trails and more. Sea Colony is also ranked by Tennis Magazine as #10 out of the 50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts and #13 in the world. Since the beach is private owned by Sea Colony, it is kept exceptionally clean compared to others along the Mid-Atlantic shore.

We are located less than 3 hours from Wash D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Jersey. NON-SMOKING AND NO PETS. Security deposit required. Please be aware that there is a per person badge fee charged by Sea Colony year round with the off season having the lowest fee.

Bookings for 2014 have already gotten off to a brisk start! Please check our calendar for available dates as we update whenever bookings are finalized.

We are working professionals from Baltimore that have been renting at Sea Colony with family on the east side for 35 years. Recently we started to try the off season and really prefer the relaxed pace. The park-like setting on the west side provides ample walking or bike riding space in a safe well maintained enviroment.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

We fell in love with this unit with it's incredible lake view and close proximity to both the pool & tennis courts. Tucked far enough into the west side for peace and quiet, yet equidistantly close the the beach and fitness center. We feel it's among the best vacation locations in Sea Colony.

Easy access to Delmarva attractions yet less than 3 hours from Baltimore, DC or Philadelphia.

Wonderful time in Bethany

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 25, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Our family has stayed at Sea Colony many times, but this was the first stay at this location. We were thrilled with the location - steps to the outdoor heated pool, tram stop in the parking lot and right beside a lake. We enjoyed many mornings having breakfast on the screened-in porch beside the lake.

The condo itself was very nice - comfortable beds and well-appointed. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and there were even tons of board games, books and even some DVDs and Wii games!

It is hard to find condo owners willing to do partial-week rentals during the summer, so we REALLY appreciated being able to book a partial week. We will likely return in the future!

Owner's Response: I'm always quite pleased when families take full advantage of our location, the amenities we offer as well as what Sea Colony has to offer. Thanks Rachel for the wonderful feedback.

"This was our first time staying in Sea Colony together and found your home to be delightful and peacefully relaxing. We hope to make this an annual getaway and have already suggested same to family members. Loved the water spray in the lake and the tasteful, spiritual décor...and the great loveseat rocker".

Long weekend at Sea Colony

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
The unit was wonderful: spacious, clean, and nicely located. The owner was very agreeable and was accommodating with our unusual request for dates. My only complaint was the requirement to purchase badges. We had friends who own homes in different parts of Bethany and ocean city, and we spent our time with them; we did not use any of the amenities at Sea Colony, yet we had to pay $40 per person upon arrival. The owner did warn us about the fee, but there was no way to opt out of the activity badges. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

Owner's Response: The reviewer is absolutely correct about the badge fee. Unfortunately it's highest during the summer. Off season it's as low as $12/person. One thing to keep in mind with the badge fee is that it also includes the parking tag and access to the beach so even if you don't use the fitness centers, pools or other amenities, it's still needed. The beach behind of Sea Colony eastside is private and maintained by Sea Colony, not public so you'll need a guest tag to get on it or the guards will ask you to relocate to one of the public beaches. Cheers.

Just as we were told what to expect

Delightfully clean and comfortable. Everything has been thought of. Even overcast days were a
pleasure on the fluffy cushioned screened deck couch as I absorbed book after book listening to
the fountains in the lake and enjoying the pleasant breeze.
