Overview

About the property

On the floor below VRBO #457956. Have your friends or family stay near you.

This spacious contemporary penthouse condo is bright, clean, sunny and cheerful with gorgeous ocean views from the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and the large private balcony. You can relax while overlooking the promenade, the dunes, and the wide stretch of beach and ocean. While drinking our coffee in the morning, we watch the playful dolphins below as the sun rises over the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

We bought a new king size bed for the master bedroom and replaced one of the regular standard-size beds in the second bedroom with a queen-size bed. So now the condo has a king-size bed in the master bedroom, and one standard-size bed and one queen-size bed in the second bedroom, making enough room for 6 people to sleep comfortably. We also purchased two 90' sofas for the living room so if someone wants to sleep separately, they can sleep on one of the sofas in the living room.

We purchased a new contemporary dining room set with six chairs. All beds have new comforter sets making the entire condo very clean and fresh.

We have also purchased three new televisions, one for each bedroom and the living room. They have flat screens and hang on the walls, making for more spacious living.

In addition to repainting the entire condo, we replaced the window treatments in the master bedroom. They now have beautiful contemporary plantation shutters.

We have replaced one of the glass panels on the balcony windows. It had become a bit cloudy and now the views are stunningly gorgeous!

As of 2015, the washer/dryer and the dishwasher in the kitchen have been replaced with new ones. The refrigerator and icemaker have been replaced in 2016.

We love the wide stretch of private beach for Sea Colony guests only. There are life guards on the beach in the summer. We have filled our beach locker in the first floor garage with beach chairs and toys which are available to you during your stay in our condo. It is much less crowded than the beach in town, and much much less crowded than Rehobeth or Ocean City beaches.

Sea Colony has 24-hour security. A vacation in Sea Colony can run the gamut from beach fun to tax-free shopping to golfing, tennis and water sports. The privacy of the 'quiet resort' allows guests to sunbathe and enjoy the soothing ocean breezes in peace. Amusement parks and outlet shopping centers are not far and they provide more variety of family-friendly fun.

This world-class resort tennis facility offers an astounding 34 courts along with tennis clinics, camps and lessons by teaching professionals. Golf courses nearby include two dozen courses featuring waterfront and forest layouts designed by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.

Sea Colony also organizes weekly events such as bingo, camp fires on the beach, and other fun family activities.

The town of Bethany is only .5 miles north of Sea Colony, an easy walk to the boardwalk, restaurants, bakeries, bookstore, and many other specialty shops. The library in town allows summer vacationers to get a card and use their services which include a nice variety of DVDs and books. We enjoy many of the fine restaurants in Bethany and Oceanview, and if you want to go a bit further, Fenwick, Rehobeth, and Ocean City also have many great restaurants.

Please see VRBO #457956 to see the unit directly above this one with the same floor plan.

About Beverly Catron

I am a pediatric occupational therapist who has always loved the ocean though I was raised in the Midwest in Illinois. When my two children were young our family came from Bethesda, Maryland to many beaches along the eastern seaboard, including Rehoboth and Bethany Beach Delaware and even the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I always dreamed of having my own place on the oceanfront. I bought the condo right above this one in 2012 and have so enjoyed sharing it with friends and family and renters that I have just purchased this one to share too. I have had many requests from people wishing to have another condo nearby so they can bring their extended families to vacation together at the same time. These two condos so close together in the same Sea Colony building will accommodate larger groups.

Beverly Catron purchased this condo in 2014

Why Beverly Catron chose Delaware

Bethany Beach quickly became our favorite vacation spot because it is so close to our home and we can be on the beach the same day we arrive. We like its small town, quiet atmosphere and family orientation. We enjoy the bonfire on the beach on Thursday evenings and the many other activities offered by Sea Colony. We go to Rehoboth or Ocean City, just 20-30 minutes away for outlet shopping, amusement parks, and bike riding on the boardwalk. We chose Sea Colony because it is right on the oceanfront. We love the activities provided in the summer for the families in the Sea Colony community. The shuttle service provided in the summer months makes getting around the resort very easy.

What makes this condo unique

We specifically chose this condo because of its gorgeous unobstructed views of the ocean, dunes, and ever-changing colorful skies for as far as we can see out over the ocean. It is spacious, bright and sunny, and clean from top to bottom. We love the large rooms and the spaciousness they create. In the summer, we drink our coffee while enjoying watching beautiful sunrises and playful dolphins from our living room and large balcony. There are beach combers on the sand, children and adults in the pools and walkers on the promenade. In the winter we love to relax while watching the view below and the skies above while enjoying our early evening glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy and her friends were great guests. They stayed in good communication, were cooperative and pleasant. I would highly recommend these people as tenants to anyone renting their home.

Fantastic experience!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sea Colony. The facilities were fabulous, and the proximity to the beach cannot be beat. The condo itself was also perfect, and offered everything we needed to feel at home. We look forward to another visit during the summer season.

The owner was is very nice and she made sure we have everything we needed before we get there. The community is located nice area too. We would definitely love to go back in the summer.

Wonderful week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a great week at Beverly's condo. It is very comfortable and welcoming. The views from the master bedroom and the balcony are amazing both at sunrise and sunset. The oceanfront location is perfect with easy access to private pools and private beach. We loved the short walk into town each day, and there are many planned family activities throughout the week. Beverly made the rental process so easy and answered any questions we had. We hope to return sometime next year.

Great Bethany Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves to play tennis, enjoy the town of Bethany and of course the beach! From this roomy condo, we have the opportunity to enjoy beautify ocean views from inside or out on the balcony, as well as view the tennis courts and run out and play at a moments notice! Brandywine is within walking/biking distance of the beach (of course), downtown, fun restaurants and bars, CVS for a quick gallon of milk and the new Dunkin Donuts for breakfast/coffee! Storage locker is so helpful for beach items, underground parking is nice, and a very convenient bike rack for our bikes, is always available! Owners are always reachable if there are any questions, and arevvery kind and reliable, from booking through the entire process. Everything is made VERY easy for the renter! This was our third year in the same condo, and we will return!!
