About Doug Bui

It had been my dream to be able to own a 'pied a terre' with ocean view and direct access to the beach until I lucked out in one of my investments and got some extra cash to buy this beautiful ocean front condominium. The pleasure of sitting in your own living room and be able to smell the ocean water, hear the waves and enjoy the view is incomparable. I would like to share this unique experience with you and thus make my beautiful condo available for your enjoyment.

Doug Bui purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Doug Bui chose Bethany Beach

I have two young and active children and wanted to find a place where each member of my family can find their favorite activity to enjoy. Sea Colony at Bethany Beach is the best environment for a vacation home that caters to families.

What makes this Condo unique

Sea Colony has over 1/2 of a mile of private beach, 12 swimming polls two of which are indoor, a world class tennis facility with 34 indoor and outdoor courts, several miles of bike trail and many other amenities that can keep you busy all day long.

                                                                Perfect Getaway!

                                                                This was the first time I used VRBO, and it was a very pleasant experience! The owners were very responsive and answered all my questions! The condo was spacious and very nice! Best part was watching the sunsets from the balcony and walking on the beach which is right behind the condo! For anyone wanting to take a break and get away from everyday busy lives, this place is perfect during the off-season. It was so quiet and very few people were around! Hope to return again in the future!

                                                                Sea Colony property

                                                                Jennifer N.

                                                                This was our first time staying at the Sea Colony. The check in process to get the parking passes and guest passes was a little confusing. It is also ridiculous to have to pay $40 per person in your party "for use of the facilities". We never planned on using anything but the beach. I think they should have it only for people who plan on using the other facilities. That a lot of extra money out of pocket for a family.

                                                                It also it not practical for everyone to carry a badge on them while on the property. When you have young children they are just one more thing to keep track of.

                                                                The condo itself was a bit dated and the carpet in the master bedroom needs to be replaced. It was very dirty and worn. There was only a small broom to clean the condo with. It would have been helpful to have a vacuum available especially for the carpeted areas. We were told we could not put the AC unit below 74 degrees because it would shut down the unit. So if you like it cooler than that on a hot day this is not the place to stay. It was clean and roomy enough for four. It was expensive for the condition.

                                                                Views and Location Excellent

                                                                Good location, beautiful views, balcony overlooking ocean and beach is large enough for 5 to eat. Being at southern end of Sea Colony makes it quieter and more private. Condo was fine, could use some updating but met our needs. Reserved parking space right next to front door is very convenient and a real plus! We would rent here again.

                                                                Amazing oceanfront property!!

                                                                We loved this condo! I took my girls there for a girls get away before my daughter gets married and we did not want to come home. The condo is clean and well furnished, had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. I highly recommend staying here and can't wait to stay again myself.

                                                                Perfect Easter getaway
