About Darin and Giselle Williams

Darin and Giselle live in McLean, Virginia, but love to get away when opportunity knocks. Favorite local destinations include camp sites and trout streams along the Shenandoah, short stays on the Chesapeake, and beaches along the eastern seaboard. To support their adventures, Darin works for a global consulting firm and Giselle owns and operates her own wedding hair boutique and photography studio. They have three grown children and a Pomeranian named "Hanabi."

Darin and Giselle Williams purchased this condo in 2018

Why Darin and Giselle Williams chose Bethany Beach

Darin is a native Texan, retired Air Force officer, and is fairly new to the Mid-Atlantic region. Giselle is a Maryland native and spent many of her childhood years enjoying the beaches and boating on the Chesapeake. In 2016, Giselle and Darin met the previous owners of this property and immediately set out to make it their own. Just over a year later, in January 2018, they closed on the property. Now, they not only enjoy relaxation at Bethany Beach, but offer their special place for other families seeking fun in the sun on the New Jersey/Delaware/Marlyand coast.

What makes this condo unique

Darin and Giselle love the clean, safe, relatively quiet, family-oriented charm of Sea Colony. From the half mile stretch of private, guarded beach to the incredible amenities offered to owners and guests alike, Darin and Giselle knew their hunt was over. From the front door of the condo unit, through the Promenade, past the heated outdoor pool, to the beautiful sands of Bethany Beach is no more than a 3 minute walk. Add to that secured parking, tennis courts, basketball courts, state-of-the-art fitness centers, and activities for all ages and you have a truly remarkable vacation getaway!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment in spite of the weather! The decoration is lovely, the kitchen well-equipped and the location is great. Entry was easy and Darin was very available to answer questions and provide information. Love to be able to walk into Bethany and to the fitness center. We look forward to a return visit.
