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 Delaware

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.

Girl's Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We love Sea Colony - had a great girl's weekend with some friends from high school (a long time ago!). Weather was great and enjoyed some sales at the outlets. Condo was very nicely furnished - beds comfortable, and although it is showing some wear - it was great for us. Our only complaint was the kitchen lacked some basic items (e.g. no regular can opener, limited pots and pans, and ice maker) - we always bring stuff and eat in so we can get comfortable, drink, and catch up on each other (we only get together once a year). Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the condo.

A time for refueling and refreshment

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely, clean and well equipped. Breath taking view of sunrise and full moon reflection on the ocean a highlight. We lacked nothing to make our stay memorable. The only negative was on our arrival as the place to get parking/sea colony passes was closed. I called Tiffany and she was of great help in getting us settled. Memories were made and hope to return.

Very good place!

  • 4 of 5

Off season is so nice and quiet at Sea Colony. We enjoyed our stay at this condo very much. Well located unit in Sea Colony, at the southern end, with a great view, overlooking the ocean. Beds are comfortable. Nicely furnished and well maintained. Not "pristine" but very nice. Would definitely rent again.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 enjoyed our off season stay at this condo. The location was great, just steps from the beach. We didn't use any other Sea colony resort amenities, just the beach, so I can't speak to those. The kitchen is well stocked if you plan on eating in. We had a small issue with one of the TV's but the owner was quick to try and resolve the issue. The house was clean upon arrival, and as described. You can't beat the value of this condo. The balcony at night was just amazing! The waves, the stars, just serene and picturesque!

Great Beachfront Location

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a week at this condo. The location of both the condo and the Sea Colony resort were just what we wanted. The condo itself was spacious enough for our family of 5. While the photos online are a very accurate representation of the condo, I am not so sure it was recently renovated as stated in the description. Some of the furnishings appeared to be older and the finishes in the kitchen were pretty basic. We shopped for groceries our first night and found that the refrigerator was not sufficient for us. The other issue we had was that someone had left a rug in the washer and when my wife opened the washer the smell was pretty bad. We could not use the washing machine due to this and contacted the owners who suggested my wife run vinegar and baking soda through it to clean it. Sounds simple but not what I wanted my wife to be doing on our vacation. The wi-fi worked fine and all in all we enjoyed our stay at the condo. The beach was wonderful and the pool was very enjoyable. You do have to purchase passes for each individual at $40 each in order to access the beach and pool and other amenities. They do place a person at the access to the beach to check. So this is a good thing since it keeps it a "private" beach. We loved the Bethany Beach area as it was not as touristy as places like Ocean City.
