A guest wrote- "I am so glad to be dealing with the actual owners!

I didn't have time to search so my friend did the search for me. Your place was the first one that she saw and she sent it to me right away. It's perfect because not only is it gorgeous, but it has 2 beds in the master. Very excited and happy that your place was available!"

Our first guest this year arrived April 22, 2017 and sent an email saying, "We arrived safely around 5 and are heating up crab cakes and baked potatoes from Mike's Crab Shack in Annapolis. Your cozy little ocean hideaway is lovely! The tile work is exquisite and both bathrooms are wow wow wow!"

YOUR CAR PORT SPACE IS 30 FEET FROM THE ELEVATOR. Rise to the FIFTH FLOOR and enter your beautifully decorated two bedroom, two bath OCEAN FRONT vacation spot in magnificent SEA COLONY; home of 12 Pools (3 indoor), 34 Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, a Fitness Center (with indoor and outdoor pools, weight room, saunas, whirlpool, and indoor gym), VOLLEYBALL COURT ON THE SAND, Supervised Children's Programs, free community shuttle, hiking-biking trails, and more.

Event ends at 9PM. *******

Inside you will find A KING BED AND FULL (double) BED IN THE OCEAN SIDE MASTER BEDROOM AND A QUEEN AND A FULL (double) BED IN THE SECOND BEDROOM- Condo sleeps 4-8 and we also have an Aero single blow up bed just in case.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review...we will be sure to print it out and show it to all the wonderful Sea Colony people who work so hard all year long to make it a wonderful resort. Do come back but know reservations for next year are already being made as more and more "Northerners" are discovering Delaware with its clean and less crowded beaches. Plus, the great highways and dollar or two dollar tolls.........a great state for sure. Thanks for coming.

Loved the condo. Very clean.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the amenities. Only negative was the pool closing so early (6pm). I would also suggest wrist bands in lieu of beach tags. That's why I gave it a 4 star vs. 5 star

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time and enjoyed the newly redone condo! Sea Colony has 5 oceanside pools with three staying open from 10AM to 8PM and 2 closing at 6PM largely dependent upon demand during early June. As to beach tags versus wrist bands, good suggestion, but the Resort has found most people prefer tags to wrist bands since the 1970s. Again thanks for your nice review and do come again.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at this beachfront spot. The condo is in great condition, with new bathrooms, and the view can't be beat. We spent mornings on the balcony with our coffee and evenings with a drink. We visited with two little ones ( 5 and 2 yo) and found the Sea Colony community to have everything we needed - fitness facility, playgrounds, easy access to the beach - you passed the pool on your way! There is even an indoor pool that got a lot of use on our trip (we had some cloudy/chilly days). The condo is across the street from local conveniences - doughnut shop, drug store and restaurants. We will be back!

Owner's Response: So nice to have had you be our guests during this early week in June. Looks like a great summer ahead. Do come back soon as the little ones grow up fast. All the best.

lovely september weekend at this great condo

  • 5 of 5

This Sea Colony 2-bedroom condo was terrific for us - two couples on a weekend getaway. This home away from home was very neat, clean, and comfortable with excellent views of the ocean. Chad and Roseanne went out of their way to make this a wonderful place, with great attention to detail. The location is perfect, lots of super places to walk, eat, and relax! The beach is gorgeous and always interesting at all times of day and in any kind of weather. Seeing many dolphins playing offshore from the balcony on our last morning there was such a treat. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

Overall it was great

  • 5 of 5

I had a great experience at the place. It was clean and everything worked. Everything that was needed was there. If you wanted to ask a question of the owner they were just an email or phone call away and very pleasant.

Favorable

  • 3 of 5

Yes, the listing description was accurate regarding the location -- especially liked that we could sit on the deck even in the afternoon. (We noted that the Dover House always had afternoon sun). The location was in close proximity to the pool and beach.

The up-dated kitchen had ALL the essentials. The condo was well-maintained and was a perfect layout for us. Our bed was firm and comfortable.

Chad provided excellent customer service. When he had computer problems, he Fed-Xed (overnight delivery) the owner's manuel with picture and instructions on key pad lock which was very convenient.

The security was outstanding and we felt very safe.

We would definitely recommend the Parkway Restaurant and The Cottage Cafe. Difebo's Restaurant is a definite NO! My b-i-l did not get what he ordered and our waiter said he could not help us so we asked to speak to the manager. He was not apologetic and only credited the difference in price. We've stayed at Rehoboth previously so we also ate at Dos Locos and everyone had a great meal.

Yes, we would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks Linda for taking the time to write a wonderful review.....we do like the absence of sun glare all afternoon in the Chesapeake building due to its North East exposure. Glad you had a good time and do come back and see us again. Rosanne
