Guestbook comments from the manager

The unit was just about perfect for what we were looking for - great for two people. If we had more time than the weekend - we would have gladly booked for a longer period of time. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and in terms of furniture everything was fine, and the space was VERY clean; same goes for Sea Colony as a whole - excellent facilities and very courteous staff. The proximity to the beach and the pools was great - we took our bikes with us so it was even easier to get around - but even by foot it wasn't too long at all. If just the two of us decide to vacation in Bethany Beach again, we will definitely look to this space again as a place to stay.

Why do I keep coming back to this unit? There are a couple reasons. First it is so well stocked that you immediately relax--cleaning supplies, trash bags, coffee filters, extra sheets and blankets, lots of cookware. Second, if you are tennis player, it is a 5 minute walk to the tennis center. If you have kids, the small swimming pool just outside your door step is a delight. A nicely decorated and comfortable condo that my wife and I just love.

Owner's Response: We've provided renters lots of additional amenities over the past few years - new appliances, a new sofa bed and a new HD wide screen TV, to name e few. And I shouldn't forget the new HVAC system and WIFI. The location is within easy walking distance of the beach and the indoor and outdoor tennis courts. We give repeat customers a discount on future rentals. For a couple's getaway or a family of four, you can't beat the value. Come join us for a first-class experience at an affordable price.

Incredible place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent one week in this place in August 2014. We could not even imagine that it will be so much fun. The unit was very clean and nice. Full size kitchen is equipped for needs of family who has children and want to have homemade meal every day. The tennis courts are 5 minutes away and beach is across the street. Resort is quiet and very nice. Recreation center is about half-a-mile away. Shuttles take people to the beach and any location in the resort.
We loved it so much and decided to book it for the next year again.

Perfect for 2

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our first anniversary - and it was just about perfect. The unit was a great size for 2 people (even though it could sleep 4 with the pull-out). The space was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with all the basic utensils and kitchenware. It's a very short walk to the beach, and a walkable distance to the "downtown" area (would recommend bringing bikes). The staff was courteous, and the general Sea Colony facilities (pools, tennis courts, walking trails) were all very well maintained - we would have stayed for longer if we could have!

Very Decent

  • 4 of 5
The location is perfect, 10 mins walk to the beach, 1 min to the pool, 5 minutes to the tennis center via walk. The parking is perfect in the shade all day huge space. The setup was very good for 2 couples (one gets the sofa bed). The place was clean and organized. The dishes were organized and cleaned (we are neat freaks). The Deck was clean, the shower outside does not work, but that is okay since the pool and beach have their own showers. The only draw back was the appliances which works but are a little outdated. The laundry also works but the setup with the washer is a little tricky. The Internet works just as stated by the owner. The overall experience was extremely good. We definitely recommend this condo and should we return we will stay there.

Renters Beware!!!

  • 1 of 5
Well, where do I start? The patio: It was absolutely disgusting. It had not been cleaned from the previous winter. Leaves all over; mold on the wood and the sliding glass door base. The patio shower had paint peeling off the wall and had mold and dirt on the floor. The living room drapes did not close. The oven was very dirty(inside) and the dishes,silverware, pots and pans were grimy. We actually bought paper plates and plasticware. The A/C filter looked like it wasn't changed in years (literally). We were bitten constantly by sand fleas or some type bug. Yeah, we killed our fair share while we were there,too! Although the place was neat, it really needed to be cleaned. Mind you, we weren't expecting the Hilton; but when I rent a place, I expect it to be clean and in good order. If I hadn't paid for it with a certified check, I would have been out of there within the first 10 minutes. I contacted the person in charge of the rental the first night to complain and on the last day; but my complaint was disregarded. I tried to get at least a partial refund but got no response. Sea Colony itself was a nice place; but I would never recommend this particular unit to anyone. ...I also took photographs, should anyone wish to see them.
