Property description

This beautifully equipped and maintained three bedroom townhouse provides amenities for guests of all ages: from the booster seat, and portable crib for the very little ones, to sand toys, fishing gear, tennis raquets, play balls, a scooter, and five bikes with helmets for the 'big kids.' You'll find indoor board games for kids and adults, Legos and jigsaw puzzles, playing cards and, of course, a card table and chairs to use as you please. A large selection of both kids and adult DVDs are provided.

Kids enjoy the miniature picnic table and benches for dining alfresco on the front patio, and the toy kitchen inside for the budding cooks. Art supplies and a library of videos and DVDs can keep the kids (and adults)engaged inside. For trips to the beach, sand chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and boogie boards are in the garage for your use.

The shuttle tram to the beach stops thirty steps from the front door, right by the fishing lake. The Aquatic Center, with Sea Colony’s biggest and newest pool, is 200 yards away. The Fitness Center, with indoor and outdoor pools, indoor basketball court, and well-equipped exercise room,is just 100 yards beyond that, next to the expansive new playground. Both are an easy walk.

A well-equipped kitchen features all the pots, utensils, and cooking tools that a serious chef would want. Tap water at the beach can have an off-taste, so both the refrigerator ice and water dispensers and well as the sink have filtered water. Young helpers in the kitchen have their own toy stove, range, pans, and tools.

At Bethany Beach, 'The Quiet Resort', you enjoy peace and quiet with convenience to every beach attraction. The town of Bethany Beach itself,with its boardwalk, shops, and public beach access, is a short bike ride away. Too much beach gear to carry on the bike? The town has plenty of parking close to the beach, too. Or sit back and ride the tram from just outside the front door, right to the beach.

The Sea Colony Resort offers recreational activities for everyone in the family. The world-class tennis facility has 34 indoor and outdoor courts, with many lesson programs and competitions. Sea Colony’s private guarded beach has an outdoor swimming pool just over the dune, plus an indoor pool just steps away. Ten swimming pools and six kiddie pools are open to all Sea Colony guests. A web of paved walking and biking trails criss-cross the resort and lead into town. For anglers, one of several stocked lakes is never far away. Sea Colony’s Security staff patrols round-the-clock, doing what security does. Their teamwork has also found a wandering child faster than frantic parents could alone -- very reassuring!*

Bethany Beach, 'The Quiet Resort', feature family-friendly peace and quiet, beautiful beaches, and convenient beach attractions. Sea Colony Resort, with its added amenities, is the best place to enjoy a week of sun, sand, and family fun!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Our two daughters were two and seven years old when we built the house, so we are the original owners. Our oldest daughter Rose, has always loved the ocean, even in February. Our younger daughter, Elena loves to swim and got used to sandy toes, after a shaky start. She loves biking around Sea Colony and to the nearby library. Tim is an electrical engineer by training and and all around Mr. Fixit, while Cynthia loves to read and is studying Russian, in her spare time. They love to travel, but especially love the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Colony:
We love the beach and our daughters love the beach. Sea Colony offered a care-free planned community in a quiet, family oriented beach town. Everything our family could want is there, including bike paths, pools, tram to the beach and a fun small town with concerts on the boardwalk in the summer. The house is well designed and life is easy!!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We enjoy biking to town, visiting the shops, going to the newly expanded South Coastal Library, which has lots of PCs and also offers kid's programs. We enjoy watching the birds, including swans within the community. The pools are within walking distance(2 outdoor and one indoor) and tennis is just around the corner, too. We also like playing in our backyard that backs to woods for extra privacy. And Mom loves reading on the master bedroom deck or on the screened porch. The kids like to fish in Cypress Lake(really more of a pond) just across the street from home.
