The unit - 306 Harbour House We were guests of the renter, so I have no experience with the check-in/out process or any other leasing details. I wouldn't have picked this particular unit, since there aren't any reviews for it anywhere, and I wouldn't rent it myself after staying in it. Pros: 1) Nice beach view - from the balcony... More

Great resort. So many amenities. You will never be bored. Great beach, pooll, amazing tennis facilities with top notch instructors, fitness center has spinning, yoga, lap lines for swimming along with weight room and a cardio room., and Bethany is a lovely town filled with ice shops, good restaurants and shops. Kids club has an activity every day.

Checking into Sea Colony is like trying to get into an unfriendly foreign country. Do NOT arrive 15 minutes early to get your key after a 4 hour drive, DO NOT expect to park anywhere within 1/2 mile of the facility without a Sea Colony parking pass. Do not expect your real estate agent to actually have your parking pass... More

If you are looking to stay near the beach, this is a good location. We did not stay in the highrise condos, we stayed near the tennis courts, so we utilized the trolley and the pools. We loved that there were pools every couple of blocks, it made it easy to take a quick swim after lunch! If you aren't... More

Stayed at my family's place this past weekend and thought it was a little run down. The unit itself was nice, just the facilities in general are getting long in the tooth. Some paint and new furniture would help. When it comes to location, you can't beat the Sea Colony.

We have come to Sea Colony for 5 years-- and continue to be a fan of the location and overall resort services (landscape, tennis courts, kids camp, pools, beach, etc). However, the cleanliness of the units has gone downhill. We are in 1004D Brighton on the tennis side this year and the unit is just not up the standards. The... More

I tell you, if the location was anywhere else, I would have made a much "larger" stink about my room. The pools are great and ocean views stunning. The Sea Colony, Brandywine Building 707B looks great until you look a little harder. Within 5 minutes of arrival, I saw an electrical outlet hanging near the tv cabinet and a piece... More

Our family vacationed @ Sea Colony for several years ..never disappointed, never wanted to leave. Secure gated resort for families with independent teens. Relaxing environment for adults while keeping an eye on wandering socializing teens. Everyone's happy :)) Rental units vary, we prefer ocean front. Centered between busy Ocean City for boardwalk and Rehoboth Beach outlets. Bethany Beach is a... More

This place is mediocre at best. Not clean, not well cared for, and they take mandatory damage fee so they can lie about damages. We stayed there for a weekend. They gave us twin sheets for a full size pull out even after we paid the linen fee. We tried to open blinds and several of them fell off the... More

My family has been staying at the Sea Colony since the 1980s. We love it because there is so much to do! With so many pools, the fitness center, basketball courts, tennis courts, the beach, and nearby downtown Bethany, plus the special activities (sandcastle contest, bonfire, dodgeball games, etc.), there is truly something for everyone in the family! We have... More
