Why Ed and Fran Sexauer chose Bethany Beach
After spending many summer vacations at the beach, we decided to buy in Bethany Beach, the area we loved visiting the most. We settled on Sea Colony as the best family resort in the Delaware-Ocean City area and have thoroughly enjoyed it with our children and grandchildren ever since.
What makes this Condo unique
Sea Colony is unique among Delaware-Maryland oceanfront properties in its family-friendly atmosphere and in the resort offerings it provides - tennis, indoor and outdoor (heated) pools, fitness centers, private beach, activities programs, etc. Within Sea Colony, our unit is in a prime location - perfect for viewing the beach/ocean as well as the pool and kiddie pool. We love it here.

Gorgeous Bethany condo! Great experience
We headed to Bethany Beach for an impromptu partial week vacation and this lovely Sea Colony unit caught our eye. Beautifully decorated, bright and comfortable with a spectacular view of the ocean, we were completely at home! The kitchen is newly renovated with quality appliances which made it a real pleasure to use. (Last year we rented a condo on the Gulf Coast and the dishwasher was a cheap model and interminably loud. What a difference!)
Sea Colony has a private beach in front of the property, and with the cold weather, it was odd to have the whole beach to ourselves but we'll take it! So restful. Since it was off-season, most of the pools were closed, of course. We made a brief visit at the indoor pool/hot tub next door at Edgewater -- under the watchful supervision of a lifeguard -- kinda strange to us since we're used to "Swim at your own risk" pools.
As pointed out in the property description, Sea Colony assesses a mandatory recreation fee per person (over 4 years old), per week. Being the off-season, our fees were $12 per person. We're not tennis players so essentially, it was $36 to use the hot tub for 10 minutes but whatcha gonna do?! :-) Just keep in mind that you'll need to pay the fees in addition to the property rental. Outside of Sea Colony, we found a surprising lot to do in the extended area -- such a terrific visit!
Ed was fast to respond to our last minute request and got us all of our documents electronically to make our weekend happen. Wonderful communication. Ed and Fran have created a fantastic getaway at Bethany -- we would not hesitate to return in the future!
Great location and worked well for our six adults.
Sea Colony is an excellent property and off season is our cup of tea. Wonderful beach and beach access. Condo was very comfortable and close enough to downtown shopping and restaurants for easy access. Convenient groceries and liquor store across the street.
Very well kept and designed space. New renovated kitchen is very nice.
This was perfect for a chick's weekend away! Plenty of bedroom space and bathrooms were well acquainted for our purposes.
We enjoyed relaxing and the ocean views were so picturesque!
My only complaint was the charges for the badges which give you access to the pool, tennis courts, and other services offered by condos. As it was Nov. we did not use any of these and felt like this was an unnecessary charge.
Thank you for your comments. The Sea Colony Recreational Association charges a fee to all renters ages 4 and over. The fee is totally independent of the rent for the condo.
The Recreational Association fee is charged for all use of the common areas at Sea Colony, such as the fitness center, the many indoor and outdoor ocean and west side pools and tennis courts, the beach, etc. The fee is paid at check-in and currently ranges from a low of $12.00 per person in the off season to a high of $40.00 per person in the high season.
We visited in the off season and it was perfect!! Quiet, sunny, the ultimate relaxation weekend for girlfriends! We will absolutely visit again!!!
Wonderful condo and beach area!
This was a clean, updated, pleasant condo with convenient parking. Everything we needed and more.
Very nice. Excellent kitchen. Gorgeous oceanfront view. Location of assigned parking and locker were very convenient. A couple of drawbacks were the quality of the master's bed and pillows, seemed like they have gotten a lot of use and lack support; and the washing machine was very loud so couldn't use while awake in the apartment. We were indeed able to fit a pack and play in the third bedroom. Owners were very responsive regarding some minor issues. The resort is perfect for families. Overall, it was great and will love to go back to it!
In response, we purchased a brand new mattress set and pillows and also a new washer/dryer combo to replace the items mentioned above.
The Bethany Beach area is known as "The Quiet Resort," the destination for many families beach vacations. Sea Colony is a leisurely 10 -15 minute walk into the center of town. While the focus is on the beach, there are many other activities available. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, with seafood being the local specialty. Golf courses are within easy drives, some being dunes-type courses, and a smaller course is close by at the Salt Pond. Miniature golf courses abound. Pontoon, kayaks for eco tours, and other boats can be rented by the hour for the bay and deep-sea or headboats are available. In addition to the children's programs at Sea Colony, there are amusement parks that also have water-oriented attractions nearby in Ocean City, where you can find a large boardwalk.
Additional information about rental rates
Linens and towels are included in the rates. We have no additional fees, taxes or charges. However, the Sea Colony Recreation Association charges all Sea Colony renters 4 years of age or older a fee for the use of the Common Areas (the fitness center, pools, tennis courts, etc.). This fee is payable at check-in and ranges per person from $12 in the Low Season to $40 in the Summer.
