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 deal and value for the price

  • 4 of 5

This is a quiet area near the main drive through with semi private deck, open concept LR, Kitchen and Dining area. King sized bed is laid out in an oversized king suite with sink in bedroom and shower and toilet behind closed doors. Nice set up when more than one have to get ready to go. Laundry room is oddly set up in closet in the bedroom so plan to do laundry while you are out or for certain, up and around for the day. Had an issue with the toilet and the owner responded within an hour to have a plumber replace the necessary parts. Apartment was not cleaned for arrival. The cleaners showed up around two hours later interrupting our stay but it felt better to have it cleaned than to wonder what else was dirty besides all the litter on the carpet and sink from the previous renters. Overall we look forward to renting again.

This is my 3rd time staying at the condo. The unit is always clean, convenient, and most importantly quiet. Jane the property manager is very responsive to emails and always courteous as well as professional. I look forward renting the condo next year as well.

Good location, very attractive unit

  • 4 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 1 of 5

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.
