Awesome view, Awesome unit!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stumbled onto this property while looking for a place to unwind for the week. What a find! The unit is nicely appointed, well maintained, clean, and up-to-date. Fabulous view of the beach! A place we will definitely visit again. The owner was very responsive to every communication and question. Outstanding!

Clean, updated, will be returning to 905 Dover

  • 5 of 5

This review is late and I apologize! We stayed at 905 Dover from 8/27 through Labor Day. In the past we have always booked through Resort Quest and this year we did VRBO. Stewart's condo was clean and well-appointed; better than any condo we stayed at in the past at Sea Colony. Moreover Stewart was extremely accommodating and responsive. We were there when Hermine hit the coast and Stewart, while out of the country, responded to every question we had within hours. We would highly recommend staying in this unit without any hesitation.

905 Dover is like a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our eleventh vacation in this condo. It is beautifully decorated, clean, and is centrally located. Sea Colony is a great place to vacation and is kept spotless at all times. The local restaurants we would recommend are Cottage Cafe, Bethany Boathouse, Harpoon Hanna's and Sunset Grille. Within walking distance are a CVS, Walgreens, and Dunkin Donuts.

Stewart, the owner, is easy to deal with and responds quickly to emails. You won't regret staying in 905 Dover and will want to return year after year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post your review. I appreciate your comments. For those reading this review, Rich rented from the previous owner for 5 years. I acquired in February 2010 and fully remodeled in 2011. So now 11 straight summer seasons. Best Regards, Stewart

Another great stay at Bethany Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Stewart's condo and again, it was top notch in our book! The condo is clean and meets all our needs. It is nicely upgraded. Stewart is easy to communicate with and he responds quickly to questions. We will certainly book again when we go to Bethany.

Excellent waterfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at 905 Dover for three years now in late spring/early summer and we absolutely love it! Now that we have found the owner, Stewart, and his lovely Sea Colony condos we would never choose to stay in any other rental at Sea Colony. The view is terrific, the condo is beautiful, clean, and has everything we need. We especially appreciate the access to the beach locker with chairs and sand toys for our two young children. We have also had an opportunity to view Stewart's other condos at Sea Colony and would stay in any one of them in a heart beat. They are all designed beautifully, with great ocean views. Stewart makes the rental process very easy and is great to work with and very responsive. We can't wait to return again next year!
