What Past Guests Are Saying
We love the Sea Colony in general and have been going there for 15 years. However, this particular condo was filthy! The comforter had a huge pee stain on it, there was food and a whole bologna sandwich under the couch, mold around the sinks and shower, crumbs everywhere, bugs in the corners. We will not be staying in this condo again.

Thank you for taking the time to review this property. Georgetown 701 is a nice property. We apologize that the cleaning was sub-par. We ask that all cleaning complaints be reported at check-in so that we may take care of those issues.
Oceanfront condo needing a really thorough cleaning
We checked in on July 6th, unloaded previous renters dishes from machine, cleaned up the hair from in the showers, cleaned the sticky foods and crumbs from the kitchen. Not the way I wanted to start a vacation. The view is the best part of the condo, I wondered if the owners are aware of how dirty it is kept, however, the walls were so banged up that they would have to know. I would be upset if it were my condo and it was in such bad shape as far as the paint goes.
Excellent vacation spot!!
This was our first visit to 701 Georgetown. We were extremely pleased with everything that Sea Colony had to offer. After not seeing the ocean for years, we spotted a huge school of dolphin minutes after walking down to the beach upon arrival. 701 Georgetown had everything that our family of five could ever need to feel at home and comfortable. The balcony view was both amazing and soothing for city people like us. We plan to stay at 701 Georgetown for years to come. Thank you to the Emsallems and Sea colony for providing a wonderful early summer getaway
Lovely Ocean View
This property is on the 7th floor of a large condo complex called Sea Colony located on the ocean side of us Route 1 in Bethany Beach, Delaware. The complex was started in 1972, so it is not recent construction. Elevator access and a short walk takes you to a large 3 BR condo with a well appointed kitchen and flat screens and wireless internet. We had some trouble with the DVD player in the Living room but no biggie. Well furnished and carpeted, bathrooms were nice but older. A family with 4 kids would be very confortable here. Quiet and comfortable, Sea Colony is built to last.

It was clean and verty nice. They had very nice dishes and cookware. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Location, location, location
By far the best reason to rent this condo is the location. Walking distance to town and directly on the beach, you'll enjoy the ocean breezes and the waves crashing in your ears.
Bad news: The condo could really use an overall paint job and upgrade. There is no grill to use in the complex. The beds are very hard.
Good news: At Sea Colony, the fitness center is clean and adequate and was never too busy. There are plenty of pools throughout the complex. There are a number of family options for day and evening fun, especially if you play tennis.
The town of Bethany is quaint with wonderful restaurants. Our favorites were Blue Coast, Sedona and 14Global. We rented bikes and used them daily to get around. Also, bands play at the bandstand almost nightly which we really enjoyed. A short drive away is the town of Rehoboth which offers shopping on a larger scale.
Wilgus associates were very quick to react to issues within the condo or to provide necessary equipment.

Great location facing the beach.
We liked this condo. It was not the best we have ever stayed in, but for its location and price a good deal. It is furnished well and comfortable. The kitchen however needs updating. The stove is marginal at best. We cooked most of our meals at night, and it was a challenge on the stove. The kitchen is small and hard for more than two people to be in there at the same time. There is a coffee maker tho one is now shown on listed. The temperature was mild our week, so I cannot really comment on the aC. Our older children used the sofa bed and said it was comfortable, as were all the other beds. Plenty of pillows and blankets are in the closets if needed. The bath rooms are good size. We enjoyed the beach and the pool at our building. Only draw back to the beach is that the shore line drops off sharply, so the waves break very close in. Not too good for small children. Only two things frustrated me. Finding our assigned parking spot when we arrived, the numbers seem very random at first, and figuring out where the hot water heater shut off valve is located. Handing a piece of red string off the valve would be greatly appreciated by all the guests.
Great beach vacation spot with tremendous view
Lovely week at the beach and the unit meets all our needs at a good price. An upgrade of some of the kitchen cookware/utensils would be desirable. A guide for operating the electronic equipment--tv, dvd, cd player would be a welcome addition too.
Air conditioner broke while I was there, but the realtor responded quickly and fortunately the weather turned cooler so not the problem it could have been since the contractor had to order a part,.which hadn't arrived yet when my week ended.

Easygoing and relaxing
This is the second time we have stayed at Sea Colony and rented through Wilgus. The unit was perfect - clean, good location, spacious, and well equipped. The only negative si with the check-in and check-out. Essentially we are only getting five days when you think about it, with check-in being 3PM and check out being 10am. I understand the need but there might be some things you can do to take the sting out of it. One, include Sea Colony tags with the rental. We understand that Resort Quest does this. Two, make an arrangement with Sea Colony to allow guests to use the beach and outdoor showers, say beginning at noon. In this way, we could have dropped the kids at the beach, and gotten our shopping done by the 3PM check in.
We had one issue this time around and had to call Wilgus. We arrived on Saturday afternoon, on Sunday morning we noticed that the oven light was on and we hadn't used it, I turned the dial to off and it was still on, again I worked the dial and the light finally went off. I checked inside the oven & it was warm. We went to the beach and returned later that day, I opened the oven to check to make sure it was cool but in fact it was still warm. That's when I called Wilgus. Utimately the dials must have been switched during general cleaning and the oven was in fact on warm! The service guy came out and immediately noticed that the knobs were switched and fixed them. I was sorry he had to make the trip out but honestly I didn't even give the knobs a thought! Othere than that the only other issue we came across was the screen door on the slider isn't working very well and appears to be off track.
Comfortable apartment; great view of ocean, beach.
The unit is very comfortable and furnished well. The steps for using the TVs/DVD players could be explained better. I did call the cable company once and they were able to solve that puzzle--the TV channel had gotten changed from channel 3, which is the station needed for the cable box to work.
Very nice to have the wireless access for computers.
Kitchen equipment could be refurbished in some areas--very low on teaspoons when I was there.
Great family vacation
We had a great family vacation at Sea Colony this year. The kids had a great time with all the activities. 701 Georgetown is a great location with great views. The condo is in great condition and was very clean. I would highly recommend it.

Worth travelling from the Northeast
Even though I now live in Massachusets, I'm still going back to my roots on the Delaware, Maryland coast after visiting other resorts over my lifetime. It is far better than Cape Cod, but shhhhh.....it is still charming and maintains the local flavor. Not pretentious, just guaranteed sun, crabs, good people, and warm water (with waves!)Sea colony is ideal for a single family with kids who enjoy tennis and a reprieve from the sand and surf with the outdoor pools. The unit had spectacular views, but could've been a little better maintained and clean. I've been in other units that were more like home. Nevertheless, it was marvelous.
Response from Wilgus Associates - 07/16/2009
Thanks for your feedback! You will be happy to know that the owner is here this week and is making plans to paint, re-wallpaper, as well as do other maintenance as needed. You should find the unit in tip top condition when you return next year!

Nice Place for a Family Getaway
First, we've been going to Bethany since we were kids, and we love taking our children back to experience this wonderful place. Sea Colony is a great location, right on the beach and across the street from a mall with several very nice restaurants, shopping, ice cream, bike rentals, and a liquor store. Sea Colony has a nice gym, tennis courts, pools, and a lovely private beach. If you need to bring more than one car, parking can be a hassle, as there's only one reserved parking space, and finding a non-reserved spot can be a contact sport. Every unit at Sea Colony is a little different, because they are privately owned condos. The unit we rented this time was very clean. All appliances were in good order. There was a great deck with a nice view of the beach and some entertaining people watching. It's up high enough so you don't feel like you are "on display". The decoration was a little '80's but perfectly acceptable for a beach house. We loved it and would go again.
