Look at the pictures and see why we can offer you the perfect getaway for any season. The beach is not just for summer anymore. Come see why Travel & Leisure Magazine named Bethany Beach on of their Best Secret Beaches. 

Our Southwinds Summer Retreat is a second floor Veranda located in a quiet section of the Sea Colony resort, and within walking distance to the fitness center, several pools, and the beach. There is also a seasonal shuttle that will take you to and from the beach and other parts of the resort, and parking privileges on a first come, first serve basis on the ocean side of the resort.

The condo has a large, screened, wraparound porch, and comfortably sleeps eight. It has been renovated to include modern furnishings, coordinated artwork, and a fully-stocked kitchen.

As a guest of Sea Colony, enjoy the aquatic center, fitness center, tennis center, playground, walking paths, and one-half mile of guarded, private beach.

 Enjoy the beach, splash in one of the 12 pools, play tennis on one of the 32 tennis courts, or just chill out with a cocktail on the wraparound porch.

We have a pack and play and umbrella stroller for your use so you don't have to lug them on your trip. All guests at Sea Colony are required to pay a Recreational Association fee of $40 per person (per week) in the summer months. The fee is only $12 per person from 1/1 - 5/6 and 9/11 - 12/31 and $20 from 5/7 - 6/10 and 9/3 - 9/10. 

All renters must bring their own linens and towels, but there are also linen services available as an alternative. We can provide you with additional information if you are interested.

About Tom Andriola

We live in Albany, New York, and have two beautiful children, Justin who is 14 and Olivia who is 11. Between work, school, soccer, and everyday life, we are an extremely busy family and love using our beach retreat at Sea Colony to relax and unwind!

Tom Andriola purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tom Andriola chose Bethany Beach

We had been coming to Sea Colony for several years. My parents have friends who own here, so we had been coming to visit them, and we really love the family friendly atmosphere here. In 2014, we decided to take the plunge so we could create family memories in a place we could call our own. Our condo is in a quiet section of the resort with a beautiful wraparound porch and all the amenities you will need. From a fully stocked kitchen with high end appliances and granite countertops, to upscale furniture and a family room entertainment center, you are sure to have all the comforts of home. Feel free to enjoy the fireplace on a chilly summer night!

What makes this condo unique

Sea Colony is the perfect place for families, with the walking/biking trails, easy access to pools, amenities at the beach, and well maintained grounds. Our condo, which we call the Southwinds Summer Retreat, is the perfect vacation getaway. But don't let the name fool you -- it's a perfect spot in the offseason as well!

Second summer vacation stay

Enjoyed the property for the second year in a row, very comfortable, quiet and close to all of Sea Colony's amenities. Owners were great to work with.

Loved everything about it! The decor was tasteful and calming. Location couldn’t be better.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. I love the natural setting with so many trees and set back from the main road. A quick walk to the shuttle, pool and tennis courts made it a very convenient spot. The screened porch is so nice and big. Kitchen is well equipped. Beds are comfortable. Ceiling fans are a plus. I’d love to live there year round!

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and spacious condo. We have two young children and this place provided us with everything we needed and more. Very modern and clean. Sea Colony passes allowed us to enjoy several pools right on the beach. Property owner, Tom was very responsive to all of our questions. "Welcome Book" was very helpful! Thank you Tom and your family for sharing your vacation home with us! We will definitely be back.

Kyler Family.

We loved the setting of the Southwinds rental, when we opened the blinds every window had beautiful trees to view. Parking was conveniently close to the condo and the wrap around porch was a nice feature. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. In the bedrooms, there was plently of closet space to store our luggage and personal items and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were well appointed with plently of hot water for a great shower. The loft space is a true third bedroom with closet, desk, and a comfortable chair for reading. Overall the condo is spacious, comfortable , and beautifully decorated. Tom, our host was available before, during, and after our stay. Tom has a wonderful sense of humor and is easy to communicate with. We would recommend this rental to anyone who enjoys nature, the beach, and is looking for a pleasant place to stay. Looking forward to returning to Bethany Beach in the future, thanks Tom for being an excellent host! Jelena from PA

Great stay! Great host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Tom's condo. He was very helpful and responsive the entire time before, during and after the stay. The condo was even nicer than the photos showed, and it had everything we needed for a wonderful time. There were plenty of beach toys and boogie boards to borrow for the beach, and everything you'd need in the kitchen to prepare meals for a big group of people.

Tom was so accommodating, and we would highly recommend staying at his home. We have two girls under 4, and it was a safe, and comfortable environment for them. The screened in porch was perfect for quiet breakfasts and late night chats. We hope to come back next year!
