About Peter McCloskey

I am a grandfather with fourteen grandchildren. I designed our condo to accommodate two families with children. It can easily handle six adults and six children without using the pull out queen size couches in the living room.

Peter McCloskey purchased this condo in 1977

Why Peter McCloskey chose Bethany Beach

We have been vacationing at Sea Colony at Bethany Beach for nearly thirty years. The easy access to the beach and the availability of tennis plus the town of Bethany makes it ideal.

were the big initial factors.

What makes this condo unique

This is the only unit in the Edgewater House that has three bathrooms and two bunk rooms.

Wonderful property at perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We vacation with another family and have a total of 5 kids with us. There was plenty of space and everything we could need for a great week at the beach. It's at a prime location in the Sea Colony resort. We barely had to drive anywhere. It was a great stay - looking forward to next year already!

This end unit was wonderful for our family reunion of young and old. The balcony was particularly nice and made it so convenient for many to enjoy. The kitchen had many items to entertain with very easy.

A truly enjoyable time.

I just realized inn reviewing my rating I gave this fantastic property a 4 star when I meant a 5 star.. It was perfect for a large family , considering the bunk rooms that are perfect for kids. Being an ed unit, it was close to a non busy elevator..Thanks again to owner Pete McClosky for making this a memorable family time..

A wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

This family friendly 3 BR plus two "bunk rooms" that would accommodate 3 more people, was perfect for a family reunion of 6 adults and 2 children ages 9 and 1 1/2. The end unit has a wrap around balcony, plus a smaller balcony off one of the master BRs. There are two king bed rooms, 1 queen bed room and the bunks are singles. There are also two queen hidabeds that we did not use. The unit was supplied with more than adequate cooking ware, plates, glasses, silverware, etc.. The furniture shows some wear, but that is ok when traveling with kids.
