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.

**. Now booking for 2015. People who advance booked for 2015 are saving money with 'early bird' 2014 rates if made prior to November 2014. To get your preferred date for 2015 please check our calendar as we update whenever a firm booking is secured.

About Alan Wilder

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.

Alan Wilder purchased this condo in 2009

Why Alan Wilder chose Bethany Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

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

Wonderful time in Bethany

  • 5 of 5
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!

Relaxation at it's Best

Relaxation at it's Best

The condo has a great view of the pond from every window. We could even hear the sound of the fountain in the pond when we went to slept at night. After being here one time we loved everything about this place so much that we need look no further for our future beach get-aways. We used the pool out the deck door daily. Walked and biked the many trails every day. There was lots of space for each of us to have alone time on the peaceful screened porch or doing a puzzle at the table or resting on the couch. We plan to come back Spring and Summer. Becky and Family

Wonderful vacation in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our 2-week stay in this well-kept and comfortable Sea Colony unit. The location is just footsteps away from an outdoor pool, walking path, tennis center and trolley stop. The lake view from the large screened porch is delightful and we loved relaxing out there on the beautiful outdoor furniture. The unit is well equipped and the owner is very accessible and conscientious.

Long weekend at Sea Colony

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Relaxing and quiet!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a very relaxing getaway at this rental. It was very comfortable and clean. We especially liked the corner screened porch looking out on the little pond. Only a few blocks from the beach and from the town of Bethany Beach. Very nice area. We enjoyed the quietness of the area this time of year!! The owner was very helpful in facilitating our very last minute trip....thanks again. We look forward to going back to Bethany in the future, hopefully when all the amenities of this really great community are available.

Ba Roos Ice Cream: new for 2014 and not to be overlooked. Located in the Sea Colony Marketplace and features the best locally made ice cream in Delaware from Hopkins Farm Creamery outside of Lewes, DE. They've been around for years but now you don't have to drive 40 minutes away to enjoy it! It's the best we've ever tasted.
