About the Owner
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.

Good location, very attractive unit
This condo was just right for two people, and would work for a couple with young children. Clean and comfortable - Conveniently located - the tram stops right at the corner, and there are many walking and biking opportunities - We enjoyed the deck, and spent a lot of time there - Drawbacks: No transportation into town, and also $40 each guest fee seemed a little much if the grandkids wanted to come over and visit us at the pool once or twice. But, all in all, a very nice vacation !
Great condo for the money, affordable and nice.
For what we paid, we were very happy to arrive and see a really nice little condo with nice surroundings. Room was clean, the clothes washer was a little hard to get to in the closet but it worked. We will definitely consider this place for next year!
What a DUMP
I was appalled at how filthy this condo was! Granted, there are many amenities at Sea Colony; however, this rental needs a complete remodel! The bathroom, contrary to the cleaning service, was NOT cleaned...there was trash left on the floor. The shower curtain was moldy and the entire decor was dated. In the kitchen, the drawers were sticky and the utensils were not clean. I washed everything (pots, pans and silverware) before we ate off of them. The carpet was dirty, as well. I would say this rental has not been well-maintained. If you're looking to rent this, look elsewhere. I've rented 8 condos in the past 9 years that were far more clean and beautifully decorated than this place. Two thumbs WAY down.
This was, by far, the most filthy, dingy, dirty and dank unit I've ever rented while vacationing in Bethany Beach!!! I was afraid to remove my flip flops for fear of a fungus! The chair in the living room was worn and sticky, the kitchen drawers and cupboards were dirty and sticky, the stove/oven was disgusting--foil under the burners that was stained and dirty! The bathroom was filthy! Although the cleaning service left a note that the unit was cleaned, it was NOT! There was trash in the bathroom and food under the pull-out sleeper sofa! Flies were a constant problem during our stay and I could not locate the area where they were entering. In conclusion, this unit needed renovated and upgraded. I felt as though I was back in the 80s with the hideous wallpaper and dated furnishings. A huge disappointment for the money!!!
We truly enjoyed our stay in Sea Colony, Bethany Beach which is family-oriented resort. The house is conveniently located near the beach and across from the pool.
It's All There
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.
