Sea Colony is the premier family beach and tennis resort community, located in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Guests have exclusive access to a half mile of guarded beach, 12 pools (2 indoors), 34 tennis courts (incl. 14 Har-Tru clay and 4 indoor courts), world class facilities and instructors, and a Fitness Center with an Olympic-size indoor pool and a variety of programs for every age. Year-round adult tennis clinics. Summer tennis clinics for kids. Sea Colony was given the Outstanding Facility of the Year Award by the United States Tennis Association in 2012 and was named a 2014 Top 50 resort and No. 15 in tennis camps.

This beautifully landscaped community, with around-the-clock security, has biking and walking trails, playground and picnic areas, as well as trees and parks. Surrounded by wide open spaces on nearly all sides, there is a sense of peace and spaciousness. And yet the community is within walking distance to quaint shops and services and only minutes away from tax-free outlet shopping at nearby Rehoboth Beach. Golfers can spend days on the region's many championship golf courses.

This is a no smoking/no pet but kids friendly condo, with plenty of games, books and DVDs and videos in the attic. Pictures of the ocean (yes, the Atlantic Ocean, not the bay) and the swan pond below are NOT taken from this condo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for letting us rent your home this past weekend. It was perfect-just the right size for a end of summer get away for us. The weather was great and got to spend lots of time on the beach and enjoying Sea Colony-everyone had a great time.

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5
This is very nice condo that is well maintained and comfy. We have stayed there the past two summers and intend to return. Jane is very cordial and responsive, and the condo comfortably sleeps our family of 8 and is in walking distance to the beach.

Owner's Response: We bought this home so that our kids can grow up enjoying some down time with us at the beach every summer. It's great to hear that other young families get to share similar experiences with us every summer year after year. See you next summer, Matt!

Dirty, tired old unit

  • 1 of 5
Have stayed at Sea Colony several times and really like the location and amenities. We were a party of 4 - myself, my husband and 2 teenage daughters. We had been looking forward to our beach holiday for a long time, and wanted not just a nice place close to the beach, but also a place we would enjoy coming back to in the evenings to relax and hang out. I chose the place also because of previous good reviews.
However,this condo was a huge disappointment. It was not clean on our arrival, and many things were either missing, broken, or in disrepair. Warning - do not stay at a place where cleaning is "free" and there is no security deposit. This gives no incentive to guests - or owners - to keep things nice and to treat the place with respect. I had to call for a second cleaning on the day of my arrival. Although the cleaning crew came out the next day, the condo still did not look clean and inviting, even after the second cleaning. The couches and chairs in living room had ingrained dirt and (probably) red wine stains on them. The couches were particularly bad: lots of stains and ground-in dirt; and very old, tattered, and uncomfortable. The rugs in both bathrooms and bedroom had never been washed and had to be thrown away! Although it is listed as a place for 9 people, there was only ONE ceramic coffee cup and 3 small plastic picnic cups!Everything in the cupboards looked old and dirty and had to be washed before using. The drier took about 6 sessions to dry 2 towels! The lint filter looked like it had never been emptied. The unit does not get much sunshine at all, making the whole place look dreary and dismal.
Unfortunately the owner Jane was not helpful or sympathetic. She suggested I buy new cushions for the chairs and sheets to cover the couches so we could sit on them! Although she promised to reimburse me, this was not something I wanted to do during my vacation. We only had one week, and I did not want to spend it shopping for her household things! Instead I washed a couple of blankets and used those to cover the couches so we could sit down! The owner became very defensive when I called to tell her how dirty we had found the unit, and she did not offer us any compensation. Instead, she advised me to hope the weather was good so we could spend most of our time outside on the beach or using the Sea Colony amenities!
I would not recommend this unit to anyone, and obviously will not be back myself.
I also see there are no reviews from 2014!

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that renters who checked out before you failed to leave the unit the same condition as it was found upon their arrival. I now require a security deposit from renters so folks have an incentive to inform me of any accidental spills or damages as soon as they happen. I have also included detailed check-out procedures in my Welcome Package. I pay professional cleaners to clean the unit after each check-out and have alerted the cleaning crew to inform me of any irregularities so I can assess the situation and take corrective steps (if possible) prior to every check-in.

Lovely family beach getaway

  • 5 of 5
We returned to this lovely, homey rental for a nice family getaway. Everything was clean and welcoming, and the owners even left champagne for our New Year's Eve toast! It was quiet, but there was lots to see and do even though it was off-season. Thanks, Jane. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Yes, we love to share our home with repeat renters whom we know will take care of our home like their own. Many of our repeat renters have also become our friends over the years, sharing good restaurant and activity tips during both peak season and off-season.

This was our first time along the Delaware coast and this is the place to stay. It is far enough from the crowds and a walk to the beach. The unit was clean and functional and a nice place to unwind. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: We had quite a few families who usually vacationed on the NJ shores stay with us at Sea Colony this summer. Everyone I have talked to so far have said they prefer Delaware beaches. If you haven't tried Bethany Beach, the most family-friendly beach among the nearby Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Ocean City, MD, you should definitely come and give it a try. You may be starting a new tradition after your first visit with us!

Great place for a girls' cycling weekend

Great place for a girls' cycling weekend
  • 5 of 5
Four friends and I spent a 3-day weekend here while riding in the Ocean to Bay Bike tour. This is our second time staying at the condo and, once again, everything exceeded expectations. Clean, well-stocked, and well-maintained. The condo has a very light and airy feel which we loved. While the loft area is great for kids I'm sure, I really liked hanging out up there, too. The wireless Internet connection was also very good so I was able to get some work done.

The Sea Colony amenities were also first-rate. We used the pool, sauna, and whirlpool at the Fitness Center after our ride.

Hope to return for another stay and bike ride soon!

A week of fun

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time and the unit was very nice. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We have been coming to Bethany Beach off and on since 1985, but it has been several years since we came as a family. I liked the space and the setup of the unit. It also had a lot to do besides the beach. I would definitely recommend this to anyone taking a beach vacation. The owner was also very pleasant to deal with.

Thanks for an enjoyable week.

Owner's Response: Indeed. In fact, it's exactly because there are so many things to do at the Sea Colony, Bethany Beach area that we bought this unit. Do check out our "Don't Miss List" above. For tennis players, you definitely should sign up to one of the clinics at the tennis center across the street. Ever since leadership has changed over 2 years ago, there is now a wider range of clinics catered to a much more diverse group of tennis players. Enjoy!
