About Kate and Frank

We have spent many summer vacations at the Delaware beaches with the last eight filled with beach memories at Sea Colony. We purchased this town home as a vacation home for families to enjoy. The community has many amenities to offer. Tennis lessons, swim lessons, surfing, fishing and more. The beach is ideal for the kids with having guards and swimming pools. Best of all worlds! Assateague Island is also a favorite and it is just about 40 min. away. The horses and white sandy beach is like something you never see. A great day trip. The previous owners had a canoe which conveyed with the home. We include the canoe as they mentioned what great adventures were had on the Eastern Shore waterway. The home is just steps from the Assawoman canal boat launch. The town home is ideal for our family and we would love sharing it with you to begin your beach memories.

Kate and Frank purchased this villa in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Colleen, thank you for the wonderful vacation week. Your home couldn't have been more accomodating for our family of 6. We will pass the word to all of our friends. We have a 5, 6 twin 12year olds. Our twins were able to walk to the tennis courts and throughout the community. We felt so safe and private in that area. The home was so beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. We grilled out a few nights, board games during the rain, and of course the beach. Thanks to the weather... The community has everything we needed for our kids- this was our first visit to Sea Colony. I was able to get to the gym a few days, we played tennis and put the kids in tennis lessons. The indoor pool was ideal. We walked the boardwalk, ate out at Bethany Blues (great recommendation).. It was a wonderful last minute family vaca. We will be back and can't wait.. Thanks again Colleen.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Although we were only able to stay a couple of days, our stay here was perfect. The home was comfortable and clean, and had everything. Proximity to the beaches was great and Sea Colony amenities were top notch. Frank and Kate were easy to book with. We'll definitely be back to stay here.

Great time at Sea Colony

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful and clean house. The owners are excellent to deal with and we had more than we hoped for in fun activities. We loved to barbecue at night and canoe by day. The swimming pools were also very nice. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Frank & Kate, the owners of this property, are wonderful to work with . All details of rental contract are clear and up front and process is timely. The house is very pretty and the cleanest and most well appointed we have ever rented (this is our sixth year at Sea Colony).

It was very comfortable and had lots of items available (beach chairs, bikes, canoe etc...) for our use. We enjoyed the fact that it was a bit more secluded than being right in the main hub of the Sea Colony community but still easily accessible, via a board walk, to a tram pick-up and Sea Colony amenities. Very nice and quiet! We love Bethany Beach as it is very family oriented. There are lots of fun little shops, good restaurants and Rehoboth and OC are close by to go to for an evening of fun. We would HIGHLY recommend this beach house!!

Our family vacation was wonderful! First off Frank & Kate were professional and personable from start to finish. The terms of the rental were clear and the description of the property and pictures are accurate. It truly is a beautiful, clean, and well kept home! Our family of 6 stayed comfortably.

Sea Colony resort has wonderful amenities for all ages and was well maintained. While the townhome is a little further from the beach then I like, it makes up for it by being located on the edge of the resort which makes it feel even more private. Having the woods behind the house was peaceful and gave us the best of both worlds! We even had a deer walk up to the screened in patio during dinner one night! The beach really is just a short drive or tram ride away. Close by are tennis courts, a play ground, pond, canal for a canoe ride, basketball court etc. all within walking distance of the home which was great!

Bethany is a beautiful town! Outlets are only about 20 minutes away. Giant Grocery a quick drive, farmers markets too! Really just so much to do close by!

The kitchen was fully equipped, wi fi worked great, having a washer & dryer was very helpful too!

Our family can't wait to return next year!

Thank you Frank & Kate!

Best vacation house we have seen!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just lovely: spotlessly clean, well appointed and stocked, and beatifully decorated! The location is a little further away from the beach than I generally like, but we had no problem biking there. The high chair came handy for my 16 m.o. Dear Frank and Kate, thanks for a great Labor Day weekend!
