We as a couple are here in November. The beautiful beach right out our window from this property is barren except for an occasional jogger, couple, shell collector or dog and owner. What peace from the summertime. The indoor pool located in the Edgewater is a short walk from our 9th floor Brandywine one bedroom rental. We rented this one...

My family has gone here every single year starting before I was even born. I have gone every year of my life (I'm 27). This place is like my second home I look forward to going every year. To start with you stay right on the beach. There are beautiful views! The beach is clean, you can walk down it...

We opened the door to a messy, uncleaned rental unit at check-in time. However, the owner was great about getting a cleaning company in right away to get it ready for us and even told us she'd return our $200 security deposit. So we went to the beach. We had a pretty good stay (2 adults, 3 children) but there...

Read a few reviews from the summer and we had a very different experience than if we had come in high season and had rented a lower cost unit. September can be lovely and while it was too cold and windy to swim in the ocean, we enjoyed the beach, the indoor pool and the health club. Yes there are...

We have vacationed many times with family and friends to Bethany Beach, DE and we have so far stayed at the Sea Colony. It is the only large high-rise facility in Bethany offering multiple pools, snack bar, private beach, etc. It is clean and well maintained. Very convenient to Ocean City, Rehobath and other locations to visit. Our biggest complaint...

This is a perfect place w kids if you like pools and beach. We've been 8 years running, and love it. The beach is very nice, the restaurants nearby are great, and and there's lots to do (indoor and outdooor mini golf, walk downtown Bethany, outlet shopping and dining in Rehoboth, movies if raining, etc.).

My wife and I took our 2 grandchildren there for 5 nights starting 8/23/2013. We did have a great time; nice beach & facilities with Rehoboth Beach, De and Ocean City, Md both a short drive away. We lucked out with the weather and combined that with good food in a great variety of restaurants, it was truly wonderful. We...

Truly an awful experience. We had 3 cars so we had too drive around for almost an hour to park in a non reserved spot after being lucky enough to have some give us their extra parking pass. The location is also awful unless you want to sit on the beach all day and do nothing else. We are already...

The owner or agency You rented from shoikd have been vey clear about the 2 car limit. Bethany is known as the family resorts. Sea Colony is less than 1/2 mile from the town of Bethany where there are concerts most every night and a great boardwalk. See SeaColonyrecreation.org to see activities and amenities.

Great location, walking distance to town boardwalk and also direct beach access. Beach was great but pools were busy and noisy depending on who was there. We expected this because the resort is family oriented so no big deal we were there for the beach. We were able to get a condo by walking into the realtor's office last minute...

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights at the Chesapeake House which was great. I used to take my sons and x-wife here every year during their formative years.
