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 Delaware

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.

Comfort with a lake view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our too short stay at the condo which is on the first floor with a private entrance and screened porch overlooking one of the Sea Colony lakes where others were fishing.The condo was comfortable with plenty of seating in the living room and at the dining table. Ian was great to work with and very responsive to our last minute request. I recommend this condo for any family and would stay there again.

Great space for a group or family

  • 5 of 5

I went with an older group of family for my mother's birthday. Space was great for a group with a large living room and dining table, pullout beds and board games. Very short driving distance from downtown Bethany. Ian was helpful to coordinate with. And when there was a slight hiccup with returning the key, he was accommodating. Would certainly stay again.
