About Roy Low

How we found the Delaware Beaches: Like most people, our family discovered Bethany Beach and Sea Colony through word of mouth. Our first trip a Delaware beach town was to Rehoboth, not Bethany, because we thought we wanted the excitement of a big beach and boardwalk.

Roy Low purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Roy Low chose Delaware

Why we chose Bethany Beach: We did not fully anticipate the crowded beach and hectic pace of Rehoboth. Fortunately, the following year we were introduced to Sea Colony and Bethany Beach. Bethany has everything the bigger towns have, just a little less....less crowded, less hectic, less stress = More quality time.

What makes this townhome unique

Why Sea Colony instead of a private house: What a difference! A private beach with an outdoor pool just a few steps away, friendly crowds that are not overwhelming, bicycle rides with little or no traffic. We could play tennis, swim at the pool, and sun at the beach in the same morning.....We realized we did not need a big town for our vacation, just quality time among caring people and families looking to relax, just like us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following comment was sent to me on 10/24/2009

The Date of the visit was in early October, 2009



Roy, Thank you for a simply wonderful weekend. I had some doubts that we would enjoy ourselves at a beach resort in the Fall, but I was wrong. The weather was much better than I could have hoped for and between the tennis, pool and fitness center we were active all weekend. And my FaceBook friends still can't believe how reasonable the rental rates were! Thanks again, V. Jackson



My Response: Vicky, I am glad you enjoyed the tennis lessons (my personal favorite Autumn activity). I strive to provide a value rental experience and am glad we could 'shock' you FB friends. Warmest Regards, Roy

Wonderful rental for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was the perfect rental for our family of six. In addition to the three bedrooms, there was plenty of space for relaxing. Even though the first floor living room was large and able to seat all of us comfortably, it was nice having a second floor area with more seating and another tv. The house also was stocked with toys, games, books, movies, and more for entertainment.

The entire home was clean and well kept. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact. The indoor pool and fitness facility were excellent diversions for poor weather days. Only minutes from the beach, it is a terrific location. We plan on staying here the next time we travel to the Delaware beaches!

Owner's Response: Michele and Tom, I am so pleased that your Thanksgiving visit to our Sea Colony vacation home lived up to your expectations. Late Autumn is a great time to be at Sea Colony (with the indoor pools, fitness center and the tennis lessons at the indoor tennis center). As good as a Fall visit can be, a Summer trip can be even better. I provide beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, boogie boards and Sea Colony provides the Sun, Sand, and Surf! I am looking forward to hosting your family again. Roy

This property has all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a spacious townhouse with all the comforts of home. The owner, Roy Low, was accessible by text, email, & phone. He was patient and answered all our questions, usually within minutes. He also provided many extras such as sheets, towels, movies, games, toys, a pack'n play, etc. You really could travel light because so much was provided.

We went during the off peak season and had some sunny days as well as rainy days. However, Sea Colony has plenty of activities to offer both indoors and outdoors. Trams were not running during our stay, but it's a short drive to Bethany Beach and even Ocean City was only about 15 or 20 minutes away.

Roy was a gracious host, and is interested in introducing people to a place he loves. He truly provided us with a "home away from home." If you have an opportunity to visit, I would highly recommend this property!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This rental home is very spacious with 3 nicely sized bedrooms upstairs and an additional room which is basically the hallway turned into a TV room with playstation hookup.

Downstairs has a nice layout with ample space to move around and comfortable sofas.

Kitchen has everything you need including a Keurig coffee machine (and regular machine) and a toaster oven.

The house has lots of children amenities like high chair, optional bed rails, gate and lots of children videos and toys. My little one loved to play with 'new toys' and didn't even look at the ones we brought in.

Roy is very responsive and attentive to his guest. From all of the rentals we have been in he has been communicating the most and in a very pleasant way. Can only recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Brigit, Thank you for the wonderful description of our rental. I am so glad that your daughter enjoyed the 'new' toys. I have always felt that if we can make our smallest visitors comfortable that the trip will be more pleasant for the grown-up guests. I hope that was the case during your stay. I look forward to hosting your family again if you return to Bethany Beach. Roy

Love Sea Colony!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent stay as always! Roy is so accommodating! The house has everything you need and plenty of space for 8 of us! It's so convenient to the large pool as well as the tram stop.

The only reason it's not 5 stars, is because it was difficult to use Wifi. If that's important to you, it's something to consider. We did reach out to Roy and he was to contact the internet co.

Other than that, perfect!

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our week at this rental in Sea Colony. The place was a great size for us (6 adults and 2 children under 2 years of age). Came with lots of extras, like some paper goods and equipment for the babies!
