This beautiful unit is ocean front, beach front, upgraded, and ready for fun and relaxation. LINENS, towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrella all provided! No renting linen or excess packing or lugging. Incredible views up and down the beach, sunrises shake your senses, easiest beach access and pool relaxation. NOTE: Owners provide permission letter to buy recreation badges from Sea Colony, all renters need to buy rec badges with owners permission-they are $15-$45 per person for the week depending on season.

NEW renovated fitness center for 2016.

Indoor pool, hot tub and sauna in lower lobby. Check calendar for availability. Call Jon at 703 915 4292 for immediate response.

Brand NEW tile floor, NEW HD TV's, NEW kitchen and laundry appliances, and new bathroom, carpet 2014, new paint and appliances.

Let all the worries slip away as you watch the sun slowly rise out of the sea, listen to the slow roll of the breakers and stroll down to the water.

Sea Colony's Edgewater House building is the hub of activity. Compared to other 2 bedroom units in the oceanfront buildings, Edgewater's units are much larger and the balconies are almost twice the size. It is the only Sea Colony building to face the sea directly.

Balconies, exterior, lobby, and common areas all recently renovated. Sea Colony's Oceanside amenities are centrally located in the Edgewater House building - indoor pool with Hot Tub, Sauna, NEW large fitness exercise room, store/deli/ice cream shoppe, kiddie camp, bingo, aerobics, and convenience desk.

We have been coming here for many many years and can share lots of helpful information to help you fully take advantage of Sea Colony, Bethany and the Atlantic Shore.

As the family awakes, prepare a meal in your fully stocked kitchen, or go downstairs to the beach store at the foot of the elevators for some freshly made donuts or cinnamon rolls hot out of their oven. Edgewater is the center of Sea Colony east so everything is conveniently close, pools, fitness center, hot tub, etc.

Sip coffee on the balcony as the family gathers towels and beach chairs from the stocked closets, maybe a boogie board and umbrella and you are off for a day of swimming, volleyball, beach jogging, or more likely, beach napping.

Your kids play safely as you doze under the watchful eyes of the trained and experienced beach guards.

Count the number of dolphins you see migrating up the beach.

Lunch is easy in your unit, or on the promenade and the beach deli is only a few steps away. The pizza place across the street delivers to the beach or one of the tables with umbrellas on the promenade.

Edgewater House has the only promenade deli and beach store on oceanside of Sea Colony so it is super convenient. To cool off, you dip into one of the outdoor pools, or the indoor pool, which is also in Edgewater House.

Why not try the NEW exercise workout room before supper, and finish it off with a soak in the Hot Tub. They are also right there. You can easily design your own spa retreat. The massage/ bodywork center across the street comes in handy, as it were, while the kids get their hair braided or face painted a few steps away.

Edgewater House is in the middle of the Sea Colony oceanfront and was designed to be the central location. It has the indoor pool, sauna and hot tub, as well as retail in the 8 building complex. The large deck has free concerts occasionally and lots of tables with shade. Security is top notch, it is a private community gated and guarded, and there is lots to do.

For dinner, walk into Bethany, try one of the excellent restaurants, recommendations posted in the unit, walk the boardwalk and stop into the arcade and after that a custard. The large independent bookstore in town has great mysteries and lots of local authors.

Bethany has a lively artist community and lots of it is on display in town and along the boardwalk. Make plans to return to the boardwalk the next morning for a sunrise drop in yoga class. A trip to the arcade or mini golf course in town, or the local TIKI BAR restaurant overlooking the ocean, and you are ready for a stroll back to your unit.

Watch a movie, sip a wine on the balcony, or just fall asleep listening to the waves wash up against the sand while the moon leaves a path on the water. Its been a good day!

Keywords: Beachfront, Oceanfront in popular Bethany Beach, Delaware. 2 INDOOR POOLS, 5 Outdoor Pools, WHIRLPOOL, SAUNA. NEW HD TV and WIFI.

About Jon Ustun

My wife, kids and I have loved having this unit in the family, and love the idea of others enjoying it. We have been coming to Sea Colony for years and this unit has been in our family for many years. We have had LOT of fun here. We like to walk and swim. Did you know that if you float on your back out past the breakers, you can usually hear the dolphins talking to each other? We play beach volleyball, throw the football, and swim for hours. We like to alternate between beach, pool and hot tub, and walk in to town. The kids are safe and can be free to roam. Gated and guarded private community.

Jon Ustun purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jon Ustun chose Delaware

Sea Colony is perfect for ease of use, relaxation with family, or a private get away. It is not a party destination, but has plenty of fun. The town boardwalk activities are excellent. Great for families, or somebody wanting a private retreat. One of the best restaurants in town is across the street from Edgewater House. Sea Colony is rated as one of the best tennis resorts on the east coast and golf is close.

What makes this condo unique

We love the quick easy beach access and pools. The beach is easy for swimming. Our kids can be independent for much of the day. The indoor pool, hot tub and new fitness room right downstairs are real benefits of staying in Edgewater House.

Sometimes we rent bikes for an afternoon or take a kayak cruise on the bay or ocean.

I like fishing on one of the boats out of Indian River Inlet, a 10 minute drive to the north. Beach Bonfires, KIDDIE CAMP, Bingo and craft camp are fun options for the kids.

A great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing few days and had everything we needed and more! Loved being able to "be" at the beach right through the glass doors. I would certainly recommend this property to others and hope to use it again at a later date myself. This was my first experience with vrbo and Jon made it a pleasure.

Thank you very much!

Such a beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The best part of this condo is definitely the view. A huge balcony overlooking the ocean. The condo is very large and filled with almost everything you need. It is so helpful to have sheets, towels, chairs, etc. We went July 4th week which in hindsight is a mistake if you need more than one parking spot. The condo sleeps 6 people and I hope you only one in one car. Not practical with adults. The rental provides one "reserved" spot and one "unreserved" spot at Sea Colony. The problem is there are NO unreserved spots available...........ANYWHERE! We had to pay $20 a day to park on the street which was not planned in the budget. These places are expensive!

Call Jon at 703 915 4292 for immediate response. Sea Colony has gated and patrolled security and reserved parking and is super for kids. Beach is private and facilities relaxing. Edgewater is the central building, has many features the other buildings dont, like the indoor pool and fitness center, store and has many new renovations, including balconies, exterior and promenade. GPS is N 38.31.681 W 075.03.326.

Bethany Beach has a vibrant town center and boardwalk. There are many free concerts and activities and arcades and games for the kids. The daily pick up basketball game in Bethany is well known, and Bethany has some of the best restaurants on the sea shore. The boardwalk is a short walk north, close enough to stroll to dinner, and far enough for quiet. For a party scene, a quick drive to Dewey Beach to the north or Ocean City to the south offer concerts, jam bands, floating bars, etc. The unit has many new upgrades in 2013 including NEW carpet HD TV, WiFi, new kitchen appliances and paint. Brand new tile floor for 2012! We upgrade and update each year. Unit is very well cleaned.

Sea Colony is less than one mile from beautiful downtown Bethany Beach, Delaware. The GPS coordinates are

Latitude: 38.52866667; Longitude: -75.0572. (Marketplace Center, across from Edgewater Building)
