Sea Colony condo description

Just a short drive away, Sea Colony is the perfect resort for wonderful family vacations.

Your large condominium has a wall of glass overlooking a private beach and the green Atlantic. The strong morning sun and cool evening breezes, along with the dolphins and pelicans, will make the balcony your favorite place--sunrises are spectacular, moonrises are even better. Large, light-filled rooms are perfect for gatherings, a good book or movie, and games or jigsaw puzzles.

The 1/2 mile guarded private beach is seconds away, as are 5 oceanfront pools, four tennis courts, and indoor pool/fitness center. Don't miss the sandcastle building contest or the beach bonfire both on Thursdays. You can also hop on the free tram that stops at your door for the 3 minute ride to Sea Colony West; visit the swans, swim in 6 more pools (one indoor with fitness center, and one 25-meter lap pool); also 30 more tennis courts (six indoor), shaded trails, and fishing ponds. Did you know that TENNIS MAGAZINE continues to rank Sea Colony in its list of 50 top tennis resorts?

Evenings are fabulous--stroll the long ocean-front promenade, try surf fishing, fly a kite, or take a cool dip. For a little more excitement, take a pleasant walk into the center of Bethany, perhaps for dinner or a great Philly cheese steak, to sit on a bench and 'people watch', or maybe to browse the shops or the wonderful bookstore, and certainly to enjoy one of the many sunset boardwalk concerts in the new ocean-front bandshell while enjoying a delicious custard, fries or salt water taffy.

Your master bedroom has two queen beds, the smaller bedroom has one full and one twin bed. Meals are a breeze in the fully-equipped kitchen and large dining room (or just as likely the balcony). Just bring some munchies and bed linens/towels(we have plenty of blankets and pillows), and we (and Sea Colony and Bethany) will provide the 'rest'.

The last several years have seen major exterior renovations on our building, including new elevators, railings, and state-of-the-art fire alarm system, roof, and ocean-front walls. In our condo we are constantly making improvements, upgrades, and restocking. All flooring and carpeting has been replaced recently, and a new stove and microwave were installed. A new 32' LCD TV and Blue Ray player were added to the living room, along with lots of new DVDs, and new TVs were installed in the two bedrooms. The living room seating is all new, as is all carpeting.

Available for full weeks in summer, and weeks and 3+ day weekends off-season. Very sorry, but no pets.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sea Colony:
                      Our condo is a large (1,150 square feet) 2 BR unit, with LR, DR, kitchen and two full baths. Many Sea Colony units are advertised as 3 BR, but many of those are actually 2BR plus den, with no more square footage that ours, resulting in smaller rooms and also smaller balconies. Each winter we carefully prepare the condo for the coming season, including improvements, upgrades, and major maintenance. The condo is professionally cleaned prior to your arrival, and our realtor across the street is available for reporting any problems.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Sea Colony is fabulous. You can park your car on Saturday, and may never move it until the following Saturday. You can walk to everything except super makets (about 3 miles away), but emergency snacks can be purchased across the street at CVS or Walgreens. Your guest badges entitle you to use all Sea Colony facilities, and we encourage you to do just that. But in case you just want to relax, our balcony offers a great view of the beach and ocean. Prefer a pool?, two pools are a minute or two walk away. And if the beach calls to you, stop by our beach locker and pick up beach chairs and a high quality beach umbrella to take with you. If you care to stay in, we have 3 TVs, two DVD players, and lots of DVDs. Also, books, games and puzzles are in the game closset. And, if you want to eat in one night, there are 3 charcoal grills available right in front of our building.
