About The Owner

Our family not only loves the beach, but also really enjoys doing many different things.....swimming, tennis, shopping, basketball, antiquing, picnicing, mini golf, concerts, movies…..sometimes, we just like to sit on the deck and watch the swans and ducks. We start off every day drinking coffee on the doesn't get any better than that.

Sea Colony is truly a complete resort with loads of amenities, and from our bright and sunny condo, most activities are just a short stroll away.

We cherish our time, rejuvinating or simply relaxing.

Come experience it on your next vacation.

Why The Owner chose Bethany Beach

Playing in the sand at the beach was always our favorite thing to do as children. What we didn’t realize at the time, was how it became the foundation of our happy childhood memories. As parents, we quickly realized that vacations at the beach create warm, happy visions. We wanted that for our family and quickly selected Sea Colony in Bethany Beach as the perfect location……a safe, secure place where our children can have the independence to come and go freely. We wanted an open, sunny place where we could easily stroll to the beach and walk to all the amenities. A comfortable condo….a place that we could call home. The beautifully landscaped property doesn’t make us feel closed in and the convenience of being only steps away from our car makes arrival and departure stress free and simple. We systematically selected our condo on Round Robin Way…..bright, cheery, a large deck overlooking Swan Pond….an ideal condo in the perfect location. We couldn’t be happier and we’re sure you’ll find our home, your vacation location to create joyful, happy memories.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo not only has a convenient location, it contains extras to ensure a relaxing, stree free vacation. The kitchen has spices and coffee filters and cook books, there's a large DVD/VHS library, many books, games and puzzles for all ages, even coloring books!

The air conditioning is new and works like a charm or if you prefer, the condo has 3 ceiling fans! Listening to the water feature and nature in Swan Pond is so relaxing and peaceful.

From its' Sand and Surf themed living area to the Tropical themed master bedroom and the adorable Children's room.....your vacation at our condo will be relaxing and rejuvinating!!

Had a great week!

  • 4 of 5

The five of us had a very nice week staying in this unit. Location is great and overall the accommodations worked well for us. Nothing really fancy, but definitely comparable to other Sea Colony units we have stayed in. We felt the unit was clean and everything worked fine. Might be time to replace the sliding door curtain. Panels kept falling off. Would definitely go back again.

Not a very clean place to stay

  • 2 of 5

My Husband works 80 hrs a week and after a tough year we both needed to just chill. We have been going to Sea Colony for 10 years and have always rented from Resort Quest. This was the first year that we went through VBO. I am sorry to say this unit was very dirty. Couldn't cook with dirty pots, had to keep our shoes on because the rug for so stained. The walls, wall hanging, pictures through out the unit were dirty and stained. Wall paper was stained. The kitchen cabinets were caked with dirt and grease. I scrubed down the area I used to open the cabinets. They were also dirty inside. The blinds in the living room had food dripping down on them and not clean. The unit is old and that is ok, but at least it should be clean. It needs a good paint job, rugs, and new furniture. The master bed was very old and you fell to the middle when lying in it. We both did not sleep very well and my husband can sleep on anything. I couldn't sit in the living room chair because the cushion was stained and dirty. The bathrooms were at least clean, just the cabinets were dirty. I am not a super clean person, but when I go away, all I ask is for a unit to be clean. I did tell the owner, and she apologized. I then even sent her pictures, but didn't hear back from her. I always cook on these vacation to save money, but I was so gross out with the condition of the kitchen we had to eat out. Also the kitchen had ants. I love Sea Colony for all the tennis and all the things to do and we did enjoy that part. I am sorry that I had to write a review like this but we paid a lot per night, it was not worth it. I spend the same about every year and the other units were clean. The owner didn't offer anything but to clean it with one day left. I hope they will clean it up for the next person so they will be able to enjoy this place.

Owner's Response: I was quite upset when I heard from these renters about the condition they encountered at our condo. In preparation for our summer renters, a complete and thorough cleaning of all condo areas and items is done including having the carpet professionally cleaned and replacing any necessary items…..everything is fully fresh and ready. Our cleaning person maintains that level of cleanliness after each renter’s departure and she always notifies us when certain items or areas in the condo require extra cleaning or replacement. This is the only complaint I’ve ever received about cleanliness. It took these renters over 2 full days to contact me regarding their concerns. As soon as I received their e-mail, I immediately offered to have my cleaning person come….”I’m happy to schedule another cleaning as soon as possible so you can enjoy the rest of your vacation.” They did not respond until a day and ½ before their departure and declined the offer. My cleaning person was quite surprised to hear about the assortment of complaints from these renters and assured me they were not true. I made an unscheduled visit to assess the condo’s condition and was quite pleased that it looked very clean and in good shape. There were some black scuff marks on 2 of the walls that weren’t there at the beginning of the summer season, we will take care of that; the carpet did not have spill marks as we’ve seen in other years, it was in very good shape; 2 of the pots were scorched as if left on the stove empty, but we’ll replace those as we usually do the frying pans. The living room chair was clean, even though it’s far from new. Some wallpaper seams need to be resealed due to moisture, which will be done, but are otherwise clean and in good condition. Everything appears to be in good shape. Interesting enough, they never complained about the bed to me….only in their VRBO review. Many people love the comfort and feel of that bed. It’s really personal choice. Sea Colony can be susceptible to ants periodically because of the frequently damp surroundings. Management has a contract that offers quick response treatments. Shortly before their departure, the renters mentioned they saw some small ants. If I had known earlier, it would have been immediately addressed. Other than the few items mentioned above which will be taken care of, these renters’ complaints appear invalid. Sadly, perhaps these renters were in search of some type of monetary compensation.

What a wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My stay was so lovely! Each morning, I woke up early to make breakfast to eat with my sweetheart. That's saying something, because I never cook! The deck overlooking the swan pond was so inviting, I just had to have an excuse to sit out there in the beautiful, quiet morning light. Unfortunately, we had a lot of clouds and rain during our stay. Lucky for us, we were in the best stocked condo! We passed up the beach and boardwalk when the weather was poor and enjoyed some great movies and cuddled up on the big, comfy sofa. Saturday night we watched Ms. Doubtfire. There is everything you need in this condo to make it feel like home. However, we did make it to the beach and were so happy to be nice and close to the ocean. Just a few minutes in the car and we were there!

One of the things we loved most were the windows of the unit. It is so open and airy. The only thing I would like see added would be to have a set of blinds on the front door to allow for some privacy. I like to close my blinds at night time.

The bathrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The queen bed was so comfortable! The kitchen stove was a little worn but still got some use from us :) The condo was clean and in great shape.

I love that we could opt to purchase passes to Sea Colony, or not. We passed on that option to save some money and were able to find parking at the beach no problem, up past Garfiled in the metered parking.

Next time, we want to come for even longer! The tennis courts were plentiful and the landscaping of this area made me feel like I was in a dream. I want to explore more when we come again. The quiet and family oriented neighbors made for a great stay.

These photos do not do the unit justice! It is much prettier in person. We will definitely be back!

I defnitely recommend The Blue Crab as well as Blue Coast Grille for dinner. There are just so many wonderful things to say! Great location, great price, great time!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for a mini vacation and it was truly awesome. View from deck is the swan pond, place is so cozy and clean. We really enjoyed our 4 days and could have easily stayed another 4 or more. Location cannot be beat. Can walk or ride your bike to the beach. What more can one ask for. I would recommend this to anybody. Excellent communication with the owner and feel like I have known her all my life. Will definitely stay there again. Don't forget to sign the guest book :)

Functional, but dated and acoustically poor.

  • 3 of 5

The location was good, as it was across the street from the Tennis Center. If you are a bit sensitive to noise, this unit is not for you. We had a family in the unit above us, and each morning the kids sanctioned a Track Meet! Even when the specific events were not taking place, each foot step was squeaky, to the point, that I had to go upstairs and ask the people to be mindful that they were not the only ones in the building. It seemed that the older phase units where this is located, had a cheaper design, which made no attempt to stifle the noises from other units. As for the unit itself: the Queen bed mattress was soft, and should be replaced. The sofa in the living room sags quite a bit to the middle; maybe the Furniture fixit product would help. The Beach chairs that were noted, are not Beach chairs, they were chairs one might sit on while fishing, or watching a kid's sporting event. The 4 legged chairs will simply sink in the sand; I had to buy a couple of Beach chairs.

In closing, you may get lucky and not have people in the unit above you; however, next time, I would opt to stay in one of the units further away from the Tennis Center, as the shuttle stills takes you to the beach, no matter where you are, and by the looks of the newer units, they look more solid, and will most likely afford you a little more tranquility.

Owner's Response: This is the first that I, or my management company, has heard that there was any dissatisfaction. Regarding noise from people upstairs - Most of the time, you can't even tell that here are people in the condo above. On the rare occasion, some renters above are heavy footed but this can occur in any of the phases throughout Sea Colony. We've stayed in the newer phases, farther back and have heard the upstairs people. There appears to be no noise difference in the phases and we would never give up the convenience and ease of being able to easily walk to the beach. For the most part, people are aware that they are in condos and are respectful of the people around them. The rest is purely person taste - The Queen size bed in the master bedroom is extremely comfortable and decadent. If your preference is a very hard bed, then you may not like the indulgent feel of it. It's in perfect condition. I've actually thought about switching it with my bed at home. The convertible couch was purchased 2 years ago and the mattress is in very good condition. It's actually more comfortable than most. You don't feel the bar across your back. It is however, a convertible bed and none will ever feel as comfortable as a regular bed. The beach chairs are wonderful for the beach. These are the ones my family uses all the time. They are more comfortable, lighter and easier to carry. Once again, it's personal taste. This is the first time that I've had any complaints. Comments are frequently how relaxing and comfortable the condo is. The location is fabulous and providing beach chairs is an added bonus. Currently, we even have beach umbrellas. Although since they tend to break, we don't advertise that they are there.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here. It was perfect for us. The community is very quiet. We walked alot in the evenings. The convience of walking to the store, beach pools and even to the Boardwalk and feeling safe was wonderful. The landscaping of the community is beautiful. We were right by the pond and the sound of the fountain when sitting out in the morning was very calming.People who worked in the community were very helpful when answering questions. The house was clean and it accomidated 7 of us very well cosidering the age difference of our party.The homeowners were very quick in to responding to my emails and answering any questions that I had. I would highly recommend this rental property to other families.My family and I plan on making this a yearly event.
