Our spacious resort condo is the perfect destination for an affordable family vacation. The immaculate accommodations are centrally located within a short walk of all the resort amenities, including an outdoor pool 100 feet from the front door. The non-smoking condo has a fireplace and large deck, free high-speed wireless Internet access and is located on the ground level of a two-story building with ample unreserved parking.
The unit sleeps up to 6 people; queen in master bedroom, a twin over full bunk bed with a twin trundle in the 2nd bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The 1/2 mile long private guarded beach is a short 15 minute walk from the unit, about 3/4 of a mile. During the peak summer season guests can hop on the shuttle bus or tram that runs back and forth to the beach.
If the private beach and 12 swimming pools (2 indoor) weren't enough, Sea Colony offers world-class tennis facilities, 34 courts (4 indoor), a state of the art fitness center with gym, workout equipment, 2 pools and snack bar. In addition, the Sea Colony organizes a wide variety of recreation and entertainment programs for different ages throughout the summer.

We're a family of 5 five (Mom, Dad, and 3 daughters) from Leesburg, VA. We love the time we can spend at our Sea Colony resort condo, always looking forward to the next trip to make new memories of building sand castles, playing in the surf, swimming, or just relaxing.

A beautiful condo and awesome experience our first time renting...we'll be back! This place is amazing - we felt so "at home" - much space for us to "spread out" and so clean and neat!! The pool is great on a sunny day or rainy day because there is an indoor poolnear the beachfront. Have fun! Guests from DE
Our vacation was absolutley wonderful! We had the best time. The weather was great, some days we went to the beach, and some days we relaxed by the pool. The people in the community were so friendly and nice. The packet the owners sent was unbelievable. Everything you wanted to know was right there in those papers. Very Helpful! Our daughter and granddaughter visited us for a few days from New Jersey. There was plenty of room for her to play. Everything was very comforable, all the comforts of home. (Washer, Dryer, Dishwasher, Microwave, Refrigerator, etc.) We would highly recommend this to others. We can't wait to visit again. We loved working along with the owners, they were fantastic! Thank you for all the information, we had the greatest time. Kathy and Frank from Pennsylvania
The property was all we had hoped for. It was clean, nicely furnished and well decorated. The location was great, a nice walk to anywhere in the complex you wanted to go. The only thing I was disappointed about was there were no outdoor hot tubs :-( Everything else was perfect, unit was nicely stocked with kitchen stuff (pots, pans, etc), washer & dryer worked perfectly, showers had enough water pressure, port a crib worked wonderfully...like I said, everything we had hoped for!
We visited this Sea Colony condo the week following Labor Day. The condo is nicely furnished and decorated. It has a cute "beach cottage" feel to it. The location is really nice, being centrally located in the community and a healthy walk to the beach. There is a busy intersection between the condo and the beach, but there is a stoplight with a crosswalk for pedestrians.
When we arrived, we found it mostly clean, although there were fruit flies and sugar ants in the kitchen, which plagued our entire stay. There were some dead bees on the carpet near the window and hair on the sink in the bathroom. But since cleaning supplies were available, we had no trouble wiping everything down ourselves, just to be sure.
It was fantastic to vacation with conveniences of home, like a dishwasher and in-unit laundry. The dryer does not seem to be vented properly, and even loading just one beach towel in there, took 3 or so cycles to completely dry. We resorted to hang drying our towels, which actually took less time than the dryer.
We were amazed by how everything in Sea Colony and in Bethany Beach closes down after Labor Day. The pool adjacent to the unit was closed, which would have been nice to use if we had come "in season". Many of the town restaurants and shops were closed during the week. And the tram would have been a great way to get across that intersection to the beach.
This was our first visit to the Bethany Beach area, and we spent the week debating whether it would be better to come in season or not. In the end, we concluded that we made the right choice. The beaches and pools were clean and not at all crowded. We never had to wait for a table at a restaurant, and with two young children, that was important to us. We might have missed out on some activities and using the tram and some of the closer pools, but we loved letting the girls run loose on the beach and having space to spread out.
The other thing I'll mention about the beach at Sea Colony is that it isn't very friendly for strollers or the handicapped. We tried accessing it at the points the recreation office directed us to, however, in each of three different places they had told us there would be a ramp, we found there to be at least three stairs, in order to get to that ramp.
All in all, we were very pleased about the Bethany Beach area and the Sea Colony community. This condo was quite nice for what we had intended for our vacation, and we would stay there again.
