Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this summer vacation getaway for me, my 82 year old Mama and sister and we had a great time.

First as several have mentioned in previous reviews, having a covered parking space so close to the elevators was great. Second, the unit was very clean with a good sized kitchen. Even though there were only three of us I liked having 2 bathrooms. And the beds were comfortable so we always had a good nights sleep.

Also, while the Sea Colony passes are $40 per person, this unit has a storage locker with chairs and umbrella's in it which meant we didn't have to rent them, that helped with costs.

We didn't spend a ton of time in doors as we all love the beach and we had perfect beach weather every day! I enjoyed the fitness amenities at Sea Colony (I took the water aerobics class) and they have a ton of other workouts available.

A key aspect of renting this unit was the responsiveness of the owner. When we couldn't figure out where the trash chute was, or the storage locker, or when we had a backed up sink and a little difficulty closing a cabinet door, the owner responded right away and took care of things. It was greatly appreciated!

We had a wonderful week and hope to be back next year.

Just the right size

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time this year . The den was a great extra room, when needed. The convenience of the room to the beach and the amazing location of our parking spot cannot be exaggerated! The view....no words can describe the view during a thunder storm, early morning or late evening. There was enough room for all when we had family dinner. The extra screening on the balcony rail is a plus for small children. Great week!!!

Owner's Response: We are sooo glad that the condo worked out so well for you and your family. It's important to us that the families who share our little piece of paradise are as comfortable as we can make it. We hope that your schedules will allow you to join us again. It's families that enjoy life, that make life so much more enjoyable.

2yrs in a row

  • 5 of 5

Last year my wife and I took our 1 year old on his first vacation with NANA and POP and I can honestly say that we came back the following year because it was fantastic. We worked our vacation around the availability of this BEAUTIFUL UNIT. Bonus that most people do not mention was the unit parking space was convienently right outside the entrance to Faragut elevators, covered, and right in the middle of a 3 spot area.... THIS WAS A SIGNIFICANT LUXURY that needs to be known!!!!

I have, and will continue to recommend this unit to friends and colleagues

Condo with some flaws

  • 3 of 5

This is a comfortable 8th floor Sea Colony condo. Pros are it is right on the beach and, for a fee, guests can use the swimming pools and other resort facilities. Cons are some aspects of the condo. It is described as luxury and designer decor, but that is designer decor from the 1980's. it really needs an update. This is not just an aesthetic consideration. I would not recommend it for families with young children because the metal dining room table has sharp edges, particularly the corners, that are potentially lethal. We lived in fear all week that one of our grandsons would trip or slip and crack his head on these sharp corners, literally they are like pointed spears. Also the kitchen was missing some essential things. There were no knives other than the dinner knives so we had nothing to slice bread or chop things to cook. It was a comedy to see my daughter try to hack open a watermelon with a little dinner knife. Perhaps we could have dashed it against the table corners! So if you are going without children and can stand a few inconveniences it is OK. But luxury is a misnomer.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that you did not feel as though you had everything you needed for your vacation.Since we use the condo ourselves we know how important it is to have everything there. I appreciate you letting us know, and we will certainly try to investigate where the large knives left there have been placed. Thankfully nothing happened to your grandchild and although the table was a concern of yours I can truthfully say it never presented a problem to any of our little ones while vacationing there.I'm also sorry that you did not enjoy the way it was decorated. Since that is so much a matter of taste,we try to give you many pictures to see if it is something you will enjoy before you make your reservation.

Although most everything you need is on the property, we are an easy, safe 10 minute walk into the town of Bethany. If you don't want to walk, rent bicycles across

the street.
