Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

OVERVIEW:Beautiful newly renovated condo in Bethany Beach, the best family beach community on Delmarva and has been named "the Premier Family, Beach and Tennis Community".This sought after point unit in the Sea Colony Resort is ocean front, beach front and ready for fun and relaxation! Incredible views up and down the beach and mere steps to the ocean and pool.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Our lovely condo is completely renovated and state of the art. We are on the second floor of Dover House (the most desirable of the complex) with a wrap-around balcony overlooking the promenade, dunes and a wide stretch of beach and ocean.

You will find sparkling blue tile floors, modern open kitchen with stone countertops, bathrooms fit with tile, glass and granite, and new furnishings alive with fresh colors to create a clean and relaxing atmostphere.

Sleeps 10 with a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in the second bedroom, and two full/twin bunk beds in the back bedroom making this a great unit for a big family or large group.

The living room and all 3 bedrooms have a flat screen HD TV and DVD player and free WIFI throughout. There is a full size washer and dryer.

In the kitchen, you will find everything you need, including regular and Keurig coffee makers.

Your parking permit gives an assigned parking space under the building. A second permit gives guest parking in the lot. Bike racks are located under the building so you can bring your bike or rent one in town.

BEACH/OCEAN: Owners and guests have exclusive access to a half mile of private guarded beach. From 201 Dover, you will be a few steps away from either beach or pool. Our lifeguards are award winning professionals. Umbrellas and beach chairs are available for rent on the beach with personal set-up, or you can bring your own.

SEA COLONY COMPLEX: The Sea Colony Resort has a wide range of amenities including 24 hour security, beautiful landscaping, 12 pools (two indoor pools with hot tubs and sauna, open all year),and the brand new Freeman Fitness Center with fully equipped workout rooms and a variety of fitness classes. There is also a second fitness center on the ocean side. There are playgrounds, basketball courts and walks to stroll or jog.

The Sea Colony Tennis Program is rated among the top in the nation and was rated 19th in the world by Tennis Resorts. It has 34 well lit courts plus eight indoor courts in the marvelous new tennis complex. Clinics, camps and lessons by teaching professionals for all levels of experience are offered year round.

Sea Colony also organizes summer weekly events such as bingo, sand castle contests, concerts, camp fires on the beach and other family-oriented activities which are a lot of fun!

TOWN OF BETHANY: The town of Bethany is called "The Quiet Resort" and is located a half mile north by the beach or road. It's a nice 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride. You will enjoy walking along the beach to town any time of the day. Try one of the excellent restaurants, stroll the boardwalk and play mini-golf. Sample the best fudge around and enjoy beach treats to your heart's content. Maureen's Ice Cream Parlor is one of our favorites. Also we post restaurant recommendations in the condo. If you like to shop, there are lots of nice shops. The boardwalk bandstand has entertainment all summer. The independent bookstore in town has great mysteries and lots of local authors.

It is a true family atmosphere.

LOCAL ADVENTURES:For those who like to explore, Delaware Sea Shore State Park is 5 minutes to the south. If you keep south another 15 minutes, you will find Ocean City MD with a full array of vacation activities, attractions, dining and night life.

If you head north about 25 minutes, you will find Rehoboth Beach which has a flavor of its own. The Rehoboth Outlets have unending shops with tax free purchasing for those who love to shop.

Also the Cape May-Lewes Ferry is a great trip to iconic Cape May New Jersey, but it is a full day's trip and you probably won't want to leave your perfect spot for that long.

All-in-all, this is a marvelous vacation location! We hope you will enjoy it as much as our family does.

About Deanna Daniels

My name is Deanna, and my husband Luke and I have owned this condo for over 25 years. We also own 202 Dover, which is a 1-bedroom condo next door to this one. We have 9 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren and love to enjoy Sea Colony with our wonderful family. After coming here for nearly 3 decades, I truly believe that Bethany Beach is the perfect family friendly beach community. When we are not visiting, we are happy to rent both of our condos to guests who love the beach as much as we do so they can enjoy a relaxing beach vacation! Please contact me with any questions.

Deanna Daniels purchased this condo in 1990

Why Deanna Daniels chose Delaware

We loved Bethany Beach because it has a small town atmosphere. We chose Sea Colony because it was right on the ocean with beautiful views and had a feeling of happy families enjoying themselves. It is no surprise that Sea Colony is called "The Premiere Family, Beach and Tennis Community".

What makes this condo unique

We love to go the beach and have a big umbrella that we bring out each day for those who want some shade. The kids love the ocean during the day and walking to town for treats in the evening. The adults of the group, love to ride bikes, read and play games on the beach, play tennis and enjoy one another. It's the ultimate relaxing vacation for us! One morning each week, we love to drive down to Ocean City early to ride bikes on the board walk. If you want more to do while you are here, Sea Colony offers many fun activities for all ages.

Lovely Stay for Christmas Week 2016

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay - it was everything that the owner represented it to be - ideally situated with a corner view of the ocean, great bunk beds for the kids and extended family, and access (with nominal fee) to the Sea Colony's excellent new fitness center. Our visit was during the off-season but the weather cooperated and parking was never an issue, either in-town or at the Condo itself. Highly recommended and we plan to return!

Wonderful Bethany Beach Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Bethany Beach since the 1970s and it has always been a great experience. However, this year 3 generations of our family stayed in Dover 201 and 202 and it was the best ever!

Being on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool was very convenient with young children. The condos have been completely updated. They are very comfortable and beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. The owner is wonderful and our week was absolutely perfect makings lots of memories.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our 2-family vacation of 8 people. The open floor plan with sweeping views of the beach and ocean was breath-taking. We saw pods of dolphins almost everytime we looked out. The condo was well-equipped with anything you could think would be needed. The bedroom with the 2 bunks was huge and perfect for our children/teenagers. This location was perfect- in walking distance to excellent restaurants, beside the pool and beach, and in a huge development with many amenities. We enjoyed walking to the Bethany Boardwalk ever evening- only a few minutes walk. Deanna was wonderful to deal with and has a great attention to detail.

Girls beach weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING! This condo was everything and more than seen in photos! Five women went on our beach getaway weekend (February 26-28, 2016) and couldn't believe how comfortable, clean, and well kept this condo is! With it being ocean front, we woke up to a beautiful sunrise and enjoyed the sunsets as well. We all agreed Deanna was very helpful with her quick responses and flexibility. We already discussed going back next year to this condo as no other will do and make it an annual retreat! Thanks again for sharing your condo with us Deanna!
