Sea Colony condo description

This spacious contemporary penthouse condo with a vaulted ceiling in the living room is bright, clean, sunny and cheerful with gorgeous ocean views from the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and the large private balcony. You can relax while overlooking the promenade, the dunes and the wide stretch of beach and ocean. While drinking our coffee in the morning, we watch the playful dolphins below as the sun rises over the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

We bought this condo in June 2012 and have made many new purchases which include two sofas in the living room, one is a queen sleeper, another is a Wyndham Simmons king-size pillow-top mattress set for the master bedroom, and in the dining room, a contemporary table with 8 chairs, measuring 72” with the leaf in, enough for 8 people to eat meals together if they wish.

This year we have also purchased Palm Beach Shutters for the master bedroom windows which almost cover the entire east wall. When opened there is no obstruction of the magnificent ocean views. The ocean sounds will lull you to sleep at night.

Recent renovation includes new tile flooring throughout the living room, dining room, kitchen, both bathrooms and the hallway. Carpets cover the bedroom floors. The kitchen has also been renovated with beautiful granite counter tops.

The living room and both bedrooms all have flat screen wall-mounted TVs. There is a DVD player in the living room and free WIFI throughout. This condo comes with a covered assigned parking space under the building and additional parking is available in the lot. Bike racks are located under the building so you can bring your bike or rent one in town.

This condo sleeps 8 in beds; there is a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen and a double bed in the second bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. We also have a fireplace in the living room for cozy romantic winter rendezvous.

We love the wide stretch of private beach for Sea Colony guests only. There are life guards on the beach in the summer . Umbrellas, beach chairs and toys are available for rent or you can bring your own. It is much less crowded than the beach in town, and much much less crowded than Rehoboth or Ocean City beaches.

Sea Colony has 24-hour security. A vacation in Sea Colony can run the gamut from beach fun to tax-free shopping to golfing, tennis and watersports. The privacy of the 'quiet resort' allows guests to sunbathe and enjoy the soothing ocean breezes in peace. Amusement parks and outlet shopping centers are not far and they provide more variety of family-friendly fun.

This world-class resort tennis facility offers an astounding 34 courts along with tennis clinics, camps and lessons by teaching professionals. Golf courses nearby include two dozen courses featuring waterfront and forest layouts designed by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Sea Colony also organizes weekly events such as bingo, camp fires on the beach and other fun family activities.

The town of Bethany is only .5 miles north of Sea Colony, an easy walk to the boardwalk, restaurants, bookstore, and many other specialty shops. The library in town allows summer vacationers to get a card and use their services which include a nice variety of DVDs and books. We enjoy many of the fine restaurants in Bethany and Oceanview, and if you want to go a bit further Fenwick, Rehoboth and Ocean City.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I am a pediatric occupational therapist who has always loved the ocean though I was raised in the Midwest in Illinois. When my two children were young we came from Bethesda, Maryland to many beaches along the eastern seaboard, including Rehoboth and Bethany Beach Delaware and even the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I always dreamed of having my own place on the oceanfront. Just last year I accomplished that dream when my son and I bought this beautiful condo in Sea Colony. We are enjoying it immensely and look forward to sharing it with friends, family, and guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sea Colony:
                  Bethany Beach quickly became our favorite vacation spot because it was so close to our home and we could be on the beach the same day we arrived. We like its small town, quiet atmosphere and family orientation. We go to Rehoboth or Ocean City, just 20 - 30 minutes away for outlet shopping, amusement parks, and bike riding on the boardwalk. We chose Sea Colony because it is right on the ocean with beautiful views. We love the activities provided in the summer for the families in the Sea Colony community. The shuttle service provided in the summer months makes getting around the resort very easy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We specifically chose this condo because of its gorgeous views of the ocean from the balcony and most rooms inside the condo. It is spacious, bright and sunny, and clean from top to bottom. We love the large rooms and vaulted ceiling. In the summer, as we drink our coffee we enjoy watching beautiful sunrises and playful dolphins from our living room and large balcony. There are beach combers on the sand, children and adults in the pools and walkers on the promenade. In the winter we love to watch the fire in the fireplace, while also viewing the ocean as we have our early evening glass of wine.
