About the property

1080 Square Foot OCEAN FRONT 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, sleeps 8

A 2015 guest wrote- "I am so glad to be dealing with the actual owners!

I didn't have time to search so my friend did the search for me. Your place was the first one that she saw and she sent it to me right away. It's perfect because not only is it gorgeous, but it has 2 beds in the master. Very excited and happy that your place was available!"

YOUR CAR PORT SPACE IS 30 FEET FROM THE ELEVATOR. Rise to the FIFTH FLOOR and enter your beautifully decorated two bedroom, two bath OCEAN FRONT vacation spot in magnificent SEA COLONY; home of 12 Pools (3 indoor), 34 Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, a Fitness Center (with indoor and outdoor pools, weight room, saunas, whirlpool, and indoor gym), VOLLEYBALL COURT ON THE SAND, Supervised Children's Programs, free community shuttle, hiking-biking trails, and more. Only minutes away from TAX FREE OUTLET SHOPPING and the Delaware State Park at The Indian River Inlet; FREE BOAT LAUNCH, NATURE CENTER, MARINA ETC.. Smoke free environment. SORRY BUT WE CANNOT ALLOW PETS... AMENITIES; Free private Wifi, Free US phone calls, air conditioning, plenty of DVD movies, good books for beach reading. Flat Screen TVs, DVD players in living room AND IN EACH BEDROOM. ONE HALF MILE OF PRIVATE LIFE GUARDED BEACH. ****Remember, Thursday night is usually BONFIRE NIGHT on the beach!…actually this is where Sea Colony digs 10-15 small fire pits in the sand and everyone gathers around the fires to toast supplied marshmallows on supplied long sticks and a LIVE 3-4 piece band. Event ends at 9PM. *******

Inside you will find A KING BED AND FULL (double) BED IN THE OCEAN SIDE MASTER BEDROOM AND A QUEEN AND A FULL (double) BED IN THE SECOND BEDROOM- Condo sleeps 4-8 and we also have an Aero single blow up bed just in case.

We also provide linens; sheets, towels, bath mats and pillowcases at no additional cost. All you have to do is read the tags and put them on the right bed.

Step out onto the 18 foot long by 6 foot balcony running the full width of the living room and to just past a sliding door into the master bedroom. Perfect for night time solitude or ocean breezes. WE WILL HAVE ALL NEW SLIDING GLASS DOORS FOR THE 2016 SEASON.

Yes, everything you need; Full BRAND NEW CUSTOM KITCHEN-- Refrigerator, Microwave, Dishwasher, Pizza Pans, Coffee Maker, Dishes, Cooking Utensils, Washer, Dryer...note you are to supply linens, pillow cases, towels and paper products…or rent the linens and have them dropped at the door upon arrival. We will give you instructions on how to do this.

OH, and we forgot to mention your balcony faces Northeast so the SUN will be at your back and NOT in your face.

Full weeks only during the summer; April, May, June, July, August, September. ****FYI summer 2013 was fully booked by 5/10/13---summer 2014 by March 2014-- and for 2015--14 summer weeks booked by February 15, 2015---SO NOT TOO EARLY TO BE THINKING ABOUT SUMMER OF 2016.

Other weeks before and after summer are open for long weekends, weeks or months. You might also want to LOOK AT OUR INDIAN RIVER INLET LISTING www.VRBO438483 if this one is fully booked for the time you want. It is especially suited for grandparents wanting to take their one or two or three adult kids and their families to the beach for the week. Or, several couples wanting to get away for the week AND HAVE COMPLETE PRIVACY.

NEED A BOAT SLIP IN OUR South Shore (Indian River) MARINA? We can get you all set up from pontoons to fishing and pleasure boats for the week.

Sea Colony Recreational Association 2017 should follow the below schedule--plus or minus a day or so and costs should be about the same. Guest Badge Fees are per person per week ages 4 and over….dates are subject to slight alterations…. 1/1/15 - 5/09/15 $12 .....5/09/15 - 06/13/15 $17 …......6/13/15 - 8/29/15 $40…...... 8/29/15 - 9/12/17 $17 …….9/12/17 - 12/31/17 $12. All passengers of vehicles entering the east property must have a badge. Vehicles and pedestrians will be checked at entrances. All fees are subject to change.

BEST TO CALL FOR LONG WEEKENDS DURING THE OFF SEASON AS THE VRBO SYSTEM WILL NOT ALLOW LESS THAN FULL WEEK INQUIRIES.

610-408-8922..3 rings forwards to cell so best to redial and then leave message.

We then respond with an OK and you can then make the credit card payment or pay with e check (must be 10 days ahead of time) or pay by bank check if there is enough time for the check to clear.

Still have questions? Call Chad or Rosanne at 610-408-8922 and call back if you get voicemail as we may be a bit slow answering the line. ****Eastern Time***

ALL NEW TILE FLOORS ARE BEING INSTALLED IN THE KITCHEN, DINING, LIVING ROOM AND TWO BATHROOMS FOR 2017 AND THE TUB/SHOWER IN THE MASTER WILL BE JUST A SHOWER. BOTH SHOWERS ARE BEING REDONE FOR 2017 ALONG WITH NEW FLOORING AND CEILINGS!!!! COME SEE.

WE DO NOT ADVERTISE ON CRAIG'S LIST SO BEWARE THE LISTINGS ARE FRAUDULENT AND CRAIG'S LIST HAS BEEN NOTIFIED over and over but the scammers keep trying.

lovely september weekend at this great condo

  • 5 of 5

This Sea Colony 2-bedroom condo was terrific for us - two couples on a weekend getaway. This home away from home was very neat, clean, and comfortable with excellent views of the ocean. Chad and Roseanne went out of their way to make this a wonderful place, with great attention to detail. The location is perfect, lots of super places to walk, eat, and relax! The beach is gorgeous and always interesting at all times of day and in any kind of weather. Seeing many dolphins playing offshore from the balcony on our last morning there was such a treat. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

Overall it was great

  • 5 of 5

I had a great experience at the place. It was clean and everything worked. Everything that was needed was there. If you wanted to ask a question of the owner they were just an email or phone call away and very pleasant.

Favorable

  • 3 of 5

Yes, the listing description was accurate regarding the location -- especially liked that we could sit on the deck even in the afternoon. (We noted that the Dover House always had afternoon sun). The location was in close proximity to the pool and beach.

The up-dated kitchen had ALL the essentials. The condo was well-maintained and was a perfect layout for us. Our bed was firm and comfortable.

Chad provided excellent customer service. When he had computer problems, he Fed-Xed (overnight delivery) the owner's manuel with picture and instructions on key pad lock which was very convenient.

The security was outstanding and we felt very safe.

We would definitely recommend the Parkway Restaurant and The Cottage Cafe. Difebo's Restaurant is a definite NO! My b-i-l did not get what he ordered and our waiter said he could not help us so we asked to speak to the manager. He was not apologetic and only credited the difference in price. We've stayed at Rehoboth previously so we also ate at Dos Locos and everyone had a great meal.

Yes, we would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks Linda for taking the time to write a wonderful review.....we do like the absence of sun glare all afternoon in the Chesapeake building due to its North East exposure. Glad you had a good time and do come back and see us again. Rosanne

Wonderful & Very Convenient Beach Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Bethany Beach and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Rosanne & Chad Morris' beachfront condo at Sea Colony! We would highly recommend it! It's a great location, right on the beach and we enjoyed great beach views from the condo. It was very clean, spacious and updated. It was particularly convenient, which is especially nice for families with young kids. The condo unit is very short walk to the elevator, the beach locker is right outside the elevator bank. The unit's parking spot is right across from the elevator. It made getting around very easy. The pool & beach is right there. Our kids loved going back and forth from pool to beach. There are restaurants, shops, a CVS and other amenities close to Sea Colony. We especially liked Bluecoast, an upscale seafood restaurant & raw bar on Coastal Highway, as well as DiFebo's on 26. Salt Air and Papa Grande's in Rehobeth were also great.

The Morris' provide a thorough welcome manual and other essential details prior to your visit and make everything very easy. It's obvious that a lot of thought and care goes into maintaining the unit and providing guests with the best experience possible. We highly recommend it! -athas family

Pristine Unit Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sea Colony the past 4-5 years, and this was by far our favorite rental. The owner takes great care of the place, and it's a cut above. Plus, the owner has thought of lots of extras, like board games in the closet for the kids; boogies boards, beach chairs, and umbrella in the locker; most paper products and cleaning supplies. We really enjoyed this pristine unit, which feels more "like home" than some others.
