About Ed and Fran Sexauer

My wife, Fran, and I grew up in Pennsylvania (Hershey area and Pittsburgh, respectively) and currently live in the Virginia suburbs of D.C. Fran taught school in Maryland and I worked in the Federal government until retiring. Now I substitute teach in local high school and we both enjoy traveling.

Ed and Fran Sexauer purchased this condo in 1996

Why Ed and Fran Sexauer chose Delaware

After spending many summer vacations at the beach, we decided to buy in Bethany Beach, the area we loved visiting the most. We settled on Sea Colony as the best family resort in the Delaware-Ocean City area and have thoroughly enjoyed it with our children and grandchildren ever since.

What makes this condo unique

Sea Colony is unique among Delaware-Maryland oceanfront properties in its family-friendly atmosphere and in the resort offerings it provides - tennis, indoor and outdoor (heated) pools, fitness centers, private beach, activities programs, etc. Within Sea Colony, our unit is in a prime location - perfect for viewing the beach/ocean as well as the pool and kiddie pool. We love it here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're happy to be back here again. The views are beautiful and we noticed the updated kitchen looks great!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice. Excellent kitchen. Gorgeous oceanfront view. Location of assigned parking and locker were very convenient. A couple of drawbacks were the quality of the master's bed and pillows, seemed like they have gotten a lot of use and lack support; and the washing machine was very loud so couldn't use while awake in the apartment. We were indeed able to fit a pack and play in the third bedroom. Owners were very responsive regarding some minor issues. The resort is perfect for families. Overall, it was great and will love to go back to it!

Lovely, simple oceanfront high rise

  • 4 of 5

Property is on 6th floor of high rise complex. Had all amenities we wanted. Feels spacious for the size. Loved listening to waves from living room, balcony and master bedroom. Owners were very easy to work with. Only down side was required resort fee imposed by Sea Colony.

A beachfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this true beachfront condo. It was clean, bright and directly oceanfront and overlooking the pool. It is centrally located in the Sea Colony complex. There is a convenience store located on the ground floor of Edgewater next door and it was a nice place to get a cup off coffee and fresh doughnuts in the mornings. There are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance nearby and the town on Bethany is less than a mile away.

Car: recommended

The Bethany Beach area is known as "The Quiet Resort," the destination for many families beach vacations. Sea Colony is a leisurely 10 -15 minute walk into the center of town. While the focus is on the beach, there are many other activities available. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, with seafood being the local specialty. Golf courses are within easy drives, some being dunes-type courses, and a smaller course is close by at the Salt Pond. Miniature golf courses abound. Pontoon, kayaks for eco tours, and other boats can be rented by the hour for the bay and deep-sea or headboats are available. In addition to the children's programs at Sea Colony, there are amusement parks that also have water-oriented attractions nearby in Ocean City, where you can find a large boardwalk.
