About Ian Kessler

We live in Gaithersburg Maryland, have two beautiful boys who love the beach as much as we do. Our condo is a home away from home and we open it up to share with you. Please visit our personal website at

Ian Kessler purchased this condo in 2004

Why Ian Kessler chose Bethany Beach

Owning a place at the beach has been a lifelong dream. I have been coming to the Delaware and Maryland beaches my whole life. We found that Sea Colony is the perfect place for families, with the walking/biking trails, easy access to pools, amenities at the beach and the well-maintain grounds. Our condo, which we named Bethany Beach Bungalow, for the wonderful cottage-like feel, is the perfect vacation getaway. We come down in the offseason and relax and offer it to you for your perfect family vacation.

What makes this condo unique

Our location, nestled on the edge of Heron Lake and away from the road and parking lot, gives you the feeling of being in the mountains at the beach. You can fix in the lake and watch all of the nature - ducks, geese, herons, fish, frogs, hawks and more. Watch one of the DVDs we offer or choose a book from our library. You'll instantly feel at home and on vacation in our wonderful Bethany Beach Bungalow.

Property is fair I have stayed at nicer places in sea colony

  • 2 of 5

Property is due for upgrades. Screens on the deck are ripped. Couches are worn and uncomfortable, their are tears in the fabric.

The mattresses were decent.

The place was not as clean as I expected. There was hair remaining on the bathroom floor

And cob webs throughout the condo

I expect much better especially for the price I paid for a week. I have stayed in nicer places for the same price.

our family had abgreat time spending Memorial Day weekend at Sea Colony

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time at sea colony, although it’s an older community it is well kept. The condo we stayed in was nice but a little dated and in a quiet area close to a pond. The only issue we ran into was waiting for the tram to pick us up after arriving at the private beach. Because we got off at the last stop, the tram was full and we had to eventually call an Uber after waiting close to 30 minutes for a ride back to the condo. Overall, our experience was good.

A great time!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Sea Colony. The property was comfortable and mostly well equipped. We really took advantage of the baby items that included a pack and play, high chair, and toys! A larger pot in the kitchen would have been appreciated for making pasta but overall the kitchen was good if you want to prepare some meals. A bit of sprucing up (such as new bath mats) would be nice as things are showing their wear. We appreciated all the information provided by Ian Kessler. It made the stay seamless. Thanks!
