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 blue 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 heated, oceanfront pools, four tennis courts, and indoor pool/fitness center. The new west fitness center w/indooor lap pool is 1st class. 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, including a heated 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, french 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 newly remodeled and 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 improvements 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. For 2018 you will have a brand new kitchen. All flooring and carpeting has been recently replaced, and a new stove and microwave were installed. A 32' LCD TV and Blue Ray player are in the living room, along with lots of DVDs, and new TVs are installed in the two bedrooms. The living room seating is all in new condition, as is all carpeting.

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

Please request any additional information.

About Mike

We purchased the condo while living in Northern Virginia, and immediately began welcoming guests. Knowing the need for constant upgrades, in the first few years we made numerous improvements with the comfort of our guests in mind. A few years ago we moved to Delaware and now spend alot of time preparing the condo for the summer season. We want our guests to fondly remember their vacations at Sea Colony. We fully realize how important the details are.

Mike purchased this condo in 1998

Why Mike chose Bethany Beach

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 solving any issues.

Our guests tell us they love the new queen size beds the MBR, and the use of our beach umbrella and beach chairs.

What makes this condo unique

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 at the on-site deli, or across the street at CVS or Walgreens. Your guest badges entitle you to use all Sea Colony facilities, and we encourage you to take advantage of them. 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 when going to the beach, 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, DVD players, and lots of DVDs. Also, books, games and puzzles are in the game closset. And, if you want to eat in a few nights, there are 3 charcoal grills available right in front of our building.

We love Bethany and have been going there for years.We have stayed in different houses and condos there, by far this was the best. the condo was clean and it was decorated very light and Airy with great a great view of the ocean. The use of the beach chairs and umbrella was very helpful.we felt at home and will be back.

Great property with lots of options for fun.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is really lovely and clean, with a view of the sea. There are also both outdoor and indoor pools. One of my sons isn't keen on sand, so that was important to us, and the indoor ones helped weather-proof the vacation, although we ended up not needing them. The beach is nice, and the condo provides basic necessities like chairs and an umbrella. The kitchen has most utensils you would reasonably need, although there isn't a lot of storage room for food outside the fridge, so be aware.

My only caveats would be that Tansey Warner did not give us adequate check-in instructions given that they knew we were closing their office before check-in time. They were apologetic and said that they were tightening up their procedures. Also, there are only three outdoor grills for two large condo blocks, and a resident told me that the HOA prohibits bringing either a charcoal or gas grill to use on the concrete slab. This was the last week before most schools are closed, and we were OK, but there was still a line to use the grills one night.

Owner's Response: Margaret Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay The charcoal grills in front of the building were added several years ago, and I believe that we are the only ocean-front building that has grills. They are all large, so many times people have shared them. We hope to see you again next year.

VERY Happy Family

  • 5 of 5

I can not express in words how our family feels about this condo and Bethany Beach. You really do take care of the families that you allow to stay in your beautiful home at the beach. This was our 3rd visit to Bethany Beach and we have stayed at Mike & Fran's condo everytime. Quite frankly, we don't care to stay anywhere else and we won't. The condo is always clean upon on arrival, you supply us with so many items that just make our vacation easier. On our second night home from vacation my husband asked me: "How early can we book the condo for next year"? I told him I would get right on that!!

Again, thank you for allowing us to use your home and to your family from our family, THANK YOU! ~ See you next year!

Great place for friends to share

  • 5 of 5

My 3 friends and I get together at the Delaware shore several times a year and have stayed in a number of hotels and condos. We found this apartment a particularly good place for one of our get-aways. Having 4 separate beds was a real plus. Since many of the local restaurants were closed during the week, we did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen was very well equipped. The owners wrote very clear directions for operating the various televisions and DVD players, labeled all the remote controls and provided a strong WiFi connection. Also the beach gear stored in the locker located in the parking garage was first rate. Of course not enough can be said about the ocean view and the sound of the surf. We'll definitely consider a return stay.

Fantastic beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bethany Beach/Sea Colony and we are already looking forward to returning next year. This condo made our trip so much more enjoyable. It was well stocked with everything we needed for a week away from home. We traveled with two young children and the extra amenities (use of beach chairs, umbrella and toys) were very much appreciated. It was so nice to have a locker to store everything. The condo was extremely clean and exactly as pictured on the website. We are very much looking forward to staying with you again.

The Sea Colony beach

The serenity of Bethany Beach is perfect for your vacaction, but for more adventure, virtually all land and water activities are located in nearby Ocean City, Fenwick Island, Dewey Beach, and Rehoboth Beach. Great Boardwalks and Amusements, Nightlife, Water Sports and Parks, Tax-Free Outlet Shopping, and the Beautiful Delaware State Seashore.

The condo is located six blocks from the center of bethany, about a ten minute walk along a nice shaded road, and part of the walk can be on the Bethany Beach boardwalk. You can also take a nice evening walk on the Sea Colony promenade, it runs the entire length of the private Sea Colony beach.
