About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy a weekend or longer at Delaware's quiet and beautiful beach, Bethany, at the world famous Sea Colony Resort. This well-furnished condo is across the street from the award-winning tennis center and a 5-10 minute walk to both the fitness center or the private beach--an ideal location! Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, Maryland are each only minutes away by car.

This non-smoking condo has a beautiful deck which faces a wooded area--perfect for having breakfast in the morning sun or to relax in the shade after a day on the beach.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and a private bathroom, and the second bedroom has two twins, one which slides underneath the other. The second bathroom is just outside the second bedroom. The living room has a sofa that pulls out to a queen-size bed.

For down times, there are numerous books and board games, two DVD players, and many classic videos. There is a TV/VCR in every room. Starting in 2008, the condo is now equipped with high-speed internet access in the living room (cable connection).

A perfect retreat for a family with children!

NB: During the summer (till Labor Day), the condo is only available for the whole week from Saturday to Saturday. Thanks!

About Paul Penniman

Hi, I am a lifelong educator, currently running a non-profit organization in Anacostia for high school students and graduates.

Paul Penniman purchased this condo in 2002

Why Paul Penniman chose Bethany Beach

This property is close to the tennis center and has a great view of the woods from the deck, which stays cool during the summer afternoons. The condo is NOT close to any bus stop. That is its one incurable defect.

The condo is downstairs, so just the two steps from the parking lot are needed to get inside.

What makes this condo unique

There is a collection of bikes in the storage shed. The bikes are not luxurious, but they are reliable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, this is Paul, the owner. I just wanted again to share some of the comments we received last year:

April: "The condo was comfortable and suited our needs perfectly."

June 20: "What we liked most about the condo was the proximity to everything, it was comfortable and perfect for a small family."

July 19:"The condo was very nice and a great size and layout. Everything we needed was there!"

July 26:"We liked the pools and the beach."

August 2:"I liked the close proximity to the shopping center and the walking distance to the beach."

August 9:"We made use of the Sea Colony amenities more than we expected, e.g. pools. The condo was a pleasant walk to the beach."

August 16:"Easy walk to beach AND lap pools. My son saw some turtles at the pond with the swans--love the landscaping."

September 21:"We liked the bike paths around Sea Colony and the outdoor pool. What a powerful ahower in the condo. We got a shower and a massage all in one!"

Perfect for a tennis getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend & I were competing in a tennis tournament at Sea Colony Tennis Center & at the last minute decided to find a place to stay nearby. Thankfully we came across this lovely condo! Paul was wonderful to work with & very responsive. The condo was comfortable & well equipped. Nothing too fancy, but we didn't need much. We were able to walk right across the street for our tournament, which was PERFECT!! We will definitely be back. Thank you Paul!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent. To start with, Paul was very easy going and helpful. We signed up last minute and he was able to make it happen painlessly. The apartment was spacious, was close to what seemed like dozens of pools and nice tennis courts (my first time playing on clay), had a nice back porch, and was within walking distance to the beach. Paul had the place stocked as well, which was a really nice change from some bare-bones places I've stayed in the area. Everything from pots and pans, to tons of movies for those rainy days, to a barbecue, beach chairs, toys, ect. I look forward to coming back.

My only recommendation would be to make sure you have the map Paul emails you handy on the way. The numbering system tripped us up and some of the house numbers were hard to see at night.
