Oceanfront Sea Colony Condo: Gorgeous Views! Bath & Kitchen Renovations 2018

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,175 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths: 1175 sq ft, VRBO#457956 just below condo for friends, family

This spacious contemporary 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 the entire set of balcony door and windows across the front of the balcony and back into the master bedroom. It had become faulty and now it is working beautifully and the glass windows and door are perfectly clear.

The washer/dryer and the dishwasher in the kitchen have been replaced with new ones. The refrigerator and ice maker have also been replaced.

In winter 2018 the hall bathroom and the kitchen are being renovated. New porcelain tile floors will be added throughout the living room, dining room, hallway and kitchen. We are also opening up the kitchen so that two walls will be opened up giving a more open feel to the condo. We are excited about our new look.

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 1/2 mile 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 Bethany Beach

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.

Top floor, great view

  • 5 of 5

This has been a fantastic week at the beach

again in this condo! It is so close to everything. The beach is

right out the door just down the promenade a bit. The tennis

courts are out the door going the other way around the building;

and there is playground equipment right next to the tennis courts,

not to mention there are slides and swings right on the beach in

front of our building. This condo has a great parking spot under

the building that is just a few steps away from the elevator.

Everything is so convenient. There is a great indoor and outdoor private pools too. There are restaurants right across

the street.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Bernadette for your thoughtful review. I really appreciate your taking out the time to tell future renters what you like about our beach condo. It is actually not the top floor of the building. The penthouse is just above this condo and we own that one too. Please come back and stay in either condo you wish. We would love to have you as a guest again in the future. Thanks again, Beverly

Very clean with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had another great visit to this condo this year. We love the beautiful view of the ocean and the cloud formations in the sky. The kitchen is equipped with a large variety of pots and pans plus other great cookware. The beds are comfortable. The condo is so spacious that we all feel great hanging out in the condo, playing games and laughing together if the weather is not perfect. We also like it that a fitness facility is so close by. This is our favorite place to stay over here. It’s so quiet and relaxing

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Janel for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our condo. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you find our condo and the resort quiet and relaxing. We actually have two fitness buildings in the resort, one is in the Edgewater building in the center of the buildings on the ocean side and the other is recently renovated in the Freeman Center on the tennis side of the resort. We try to keep our cookware updated and are glad you appreciate it. Please come back again next year. Beverly

Very clean and nicely updated.

  • 5 of 5

Every spring and fall we bring our family to Sea Colony and we stay in this condo. We love the view from the balcony and windows. We have young children and they love to watch the dolphins swimming offshore. The resort has beautifully maintained landscaping throughout and it is an easy walk to town. There is such easy access to everything. The Bethany boardwalk is just ½ mile from this building. Restaurants are nearby and a donut shop and a drugstore are right across the street. The resort has a bonfire every Thursday in the summer and it is on the beach very close to this condo. They have s’mores, a DJ, large deep fire pits and plenty of roasting sticks.
