About Roy Low
How we found the Delaware Beaches: Like most people, our family discovered Bethany Beach and Sea Colony through word of mouth. Our first trip a Delaware beach town was to Rehoboth, not Bethany, because we thought we wanted the excitement of a big beach and boardwalk.
Roy Low purchased this Townhome in 2002
Why Roy Low chose Bethany Beach
Why we chose Bethany Beach: We did not fully anticipate the crowded beach and hectic pace of Rehoboth. Fortunately, the following year we were introduced to Sea Colony and Bethany Beach. Bethany has everything the bigger towns have, just a little less....less crowded, less hectic, less stress = More quality time.
What makes this Townhome unique
Why Sea Colony instead of a private house: What a difference! A private beach with an outdoor pool just a few steps away, friendly crowds that are not overwhelming, bicycle rides with little or no traffic. We could play tennis, swim at the pool, and sun at the beach in the same morning.....We realized we did not need a big town for our vacation, just quality time among caring people and families looking to relax, just like us.

Everything you need and more
This house was wonderful for a family with young children (or anyone for that matter). Everything you need is there--from beach chairs/umbrellas to kids toys to board games to kitchen/laundry supplies and more. The owner Roy went out of his way to accommodate us and could not have been a more gracious host. He was always accessible and replied within minutes to questions. The property was super convenient--the Sea Colony tram stop was steps from the house. And the extras for little kids--such as bedrails and a gate at the top of the stairs--made the trip extra easy. I look forward to staying here again!
Thank you Francine for the kind review.... I am glad you took advantage of the bed rails and gate. I hope that these family and child friendly touches made the stay more comfortable. I encourage my guests to ask questions before and during the visit so that I can help you get the most out of Sea Colony and Bethany Beach. I look forward to hosting your family in the future.....Roy
Beautiful, comfortable, well laid out place. Owner, Roy, is very quick to respond to questions. Sea colony has activity fees that you have to pay to get parking passes even if you don’t use the services. I’m pretty sure it said that on the ad. You are getting trolley service (in the summer), and access to pools (indoor and outdoor, some heated), gyms, tennis courts and lots of nice walking/biking trails and, of course, the beach for those fees, though.
We especially liked that we could walk into Bethany—it’s under 2 miles—perfect for burning off the ice cream you eat. Thanks to Roy and vrbo for having our family together in a comfortable place with a decent kitchen, plenty of table space, good WiFi, and good dvd/vcr access to watch movies.
Sea colony and Bethany beach is family time at its best!!!
The Property was well located and convenient for our use as we walked to the fitness center and indoor pool. Although interior was somewhat dated, the floor plan layout of the unit worked well for seven of us. We always enjoy sea colony visits and time on the beach no matter what the weather is doing. We look forward to another visit this summer.
Thanks for visiting. I'm glad your group was comfortable and I agree that the location is ideally suited to walk to the fitness center and pool. I look forward to hosting your family again in the future. Roy
Quiet beach weekend
Great stay gorgeous weather!!
We returned for a 2nd year because of the great time we enjoyed the previous year. Again, our experience was outstanding. The owner is very gracious and incredibly accommodating; the property is beautiful; the location is outstanding. We especially enjoyed being within a few minutes walk of the outdoor lap pool and fitness center. Thank you!! for another incredible vacation!!!!
Tim....Thank You for taking the time to review Sea Colony and our vacation rental. I have been quite fortunate to meet and welcome so many families that choose to return season after season. I take that responsibility as an owner seriously. Whether it is providing linens, laundry, child safety equipment or beach chairs, I will always do my best to give them the rental experience they all deserve. Thank you again for selecting our rental from the many vacation choices available to you. Roy
Great place for families!
We had a terrific time at Roy's property. He was responsive and attentive all through the planning process. This property was perfect for our two families, who had small children. This place is really set up for families with young children. The toys, chess set, baby gates, pack n play, beach chairs, etc., were soooo convenient. The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because of the reasons that it was perfect for our family. It's simply a little more lived in than some of the fancier places. The only "feedback" I would provide is that the gas was a little low in the gas range in the kitchen (but yay, gas!), and (probably as a result of the number of renters), kitchen items were a little difficult to find. They were all there but were in counter-intuitive locations - Ha! Anyway, we really enjoyed our time at Sea Colony and at Roy's house. I would definitely rent here again if we return to Sea Colony. Thanks to Roy for being such a gracious host and for allowing us to the opportunity to stay in his home!
Kate, Thanks for your review. I truly appreciate the honest feedback. I set out to make our rental family-centric and truly comfortable for children first and parents next. Your observations are spot on. I am happy to say that we host a great deal of families from March through October and many of the items at the home get a great deal of use. That often leads to some confusion when one family puts something away in a different spot that another family expects. I hope that my focus on providing amenities for kids keep my littlest guests entertained and the beach chairs and margarita machine keep the parents relaxed! Thank you again for your review! Roy
