About Kathy Kelly

We have owned this unit at Sea Colony since 2000. The kids grew up coming to Sea Colony every year and have fallen in love with the beach. Although we are now able to travel more it is still one of their favorite vacation spots. This condo is a home to us and we hope you will love it as much as we do.

Once you visit you will not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we first came to Sea Colony, we never imagined that we would be coming back each year. It was going to be a onetime vacation in Delaware, but we found something special. We found beauty, tranquility and tons memories for our children and grandchildren. Sea Colony itself is a beautiful resort with plenty to do for the kids as well as adults. And the beach house is conveniently located near the tennis courts and the pools and the recreation center. Lots of walkers and bike riders and everyone is always friendly. The beach house is bright, cheery and welcoming. The patio faces a lake with a playground across the other side, well within walking distance. You can walk to the beach in under 15 minutes or take the tram. The beach is very clean and there are outdoor pools as well as an indoor pool. Both the beach and the pool areas are highly supervised by lifeguards. The grandkids love the sand building contests that they have and the bonfire and the marshmallow roasts in the evening. Sea Colony is also located within walking distance from the Bethany Beach boardwalk where bands and movies on the beach are some of the fun things you can find . Plenty of stores and good restaurants around too. There is a small plaza at Sea Colony with a clothing store, a candy store, a beach store, a few restaurants and of course, each evening after the stroll on the beach the ice cream store has become one of our favorite stops. You can sit and listen to music or watch the kids play in the spray pool. If you're a shopper you can drive to the Tanger Outlets. If you have kids, you can go on a pirate ship at Fenwick Island, or drive to Assateque and watch the wild horses roam freely through the island. There are waterparks and mini golf parks within 30 minutes of Sea Colony. But our grandkids love the beach and the resort best of all. And at the end of each fun filled day, it's so nice to come back to the warmth and comforts of the beach house, sit and relax on the patio and watch the beautiful evening sky. We love the beach house and look forward to coming back each year.

Fabulous Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at the Sea Colony in this condo and had a wonderful time. It was clean and spacious! It was perfect for a family of four and could definitely house more:) We all want to come back again!

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! We've stayed at Sea Colony for a week each of the last four

years and we definitely enjoyed your apartment the most. It had plenty of

room for us, the kids really loved the bedroom with all the bunks, and

they particularly liked all of the games and toys in the cupboard. The

view of the lake from almost every room couldn't be beat. We spent a lot

of time on the porch swing just relaxing, and we were close enough to

tennis, the playground and the pools that we hardly ever had to drive. Our

kids usually take baths, but they didn't have a problem adapting to the

showers in both bathrooms -- they liked spraying themselves with the

showerheads! The only thing I could possibly have to complain about is

when your upstairs neighbors came down at the end of the week for the

holiday weekend, there were a lot of them, and they were v-e-r-y thumpy on

the floor above us. But we met them and they were all incredibly nice, so

what can you do? We slept well anyway.

Next year, when we come back to Sea Colony, we'll definitely contact you

to see if the place is available (assuming we didn't wreck it too badly).

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home.

Sincerely,

The Hubberts

Very beautiful scenery and great community.

  • 5 of 5

When we showed up, Kathy and her parents were at the property putting in a keyless entry door handle, you will never meet a nicer family. They were very accommodating, Kathy even texted me on the Sunday we were there, congratulating us for the Cavs winning the NBA finals (we are from north east ohio).

The location of this property is a short bike ride to the beach and a short walk to the nearest pool and tennis courts. Our favorite part of staying here was the fact that you have to wear a badge to get through the beach access. They even had someone come around randomly to the pools to check on our passes. This assured that no outside shenanigans would be taking place at the beach or pool, which was wonderful for our young children.

The only complaint I would have is the height of the showers (but I am 6'9", so I understand I'm an outlier). Would definitely travel back with the family.

Wonderful vacation at Sea Colony!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bethany as well as Sea Colony. The owners met us there and welcomed us to the property. We loved the unit! It felt more like home than other rental units where we have stayed. It was clean and the furnishings were very comfortable. Sitting on the back porch, looking at the lake, was so relaxing! The tram made travel to the beach and within the tennis community easy. We would definitely return again, and would recommend this property and this unit to family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's fifth year in Bethany but our first experience in Sea Colony. Needless to say, we fell in love with this condo and the resort. My kids enjoyed fishing in the lake ( as well as all of the amenities.) The beach shuttle stop is close and there is a pool across the street. The unit is beautifully decorated and well appointed. We will definitely return next year!
