Sea Colony - Bethany Beach, DE Rentals

Where is Sea Colony?

This expansive resort sits on the coast of southern Delaware. Our Sea Colony rentals are located right on the beach—in fact, visitors of the resort have access to a half-mile of private, guarded beach, so that finding your own slice of paradise is a breeze.

You'll also be just moments from the heart of Bethany Beach, a family-friendly, happening spot where the weather is mild year-round. Stroll along the famous boardwalk with views of the sparkling ocean, rent a kayak or boat for a day of exploration, or sample some of the famous local seafood.

No matter which style of vacation home you prefer, you’ll find something at Sea Colony. The resort boasts oceanfront condos, secluded single-family homes, and spacious townhomes. Better yet, you can choose between two different communities—oceanfront or the tennis community—so that your vacation is perfectly tailored to your tastes.

Enjoy your surroundings of the expansive and beautifully landscaped Sea Colony community. Explore via biking or walking trails, visit one of the many tranquil lakes, or let the kids roam the playground areas and parks. When it’s time to venture off-site, Sea Colony is just moments away from tax-free outlet shopping, grocery stores, dining, and entertainment.

Resort amenities and activities at Sea Colony

If the sound of your own private beach wasn’t enough, fear not: our Sea Colony rentals offer even more incredible amenities so that your travel group can have their best getaway ever. If you grow tired of the salt water, there are 12 swimming pools waiting for you, including six kids’ pools and two indoor pools. Splash in the inviting water or lounge with a good book—there’s plenty of room for everyone. And, right next to the indoor pools, you’ll find hot tubs and a sauna where you can unwind.

If you like to start your mornings off with a quick workout, head to the updated fitness center. Here you’ll find state-of-the-art equipment in an aerobics room and weight room. There are even personal trainers and group workout classes available, so you can stick to your training schedule. The on-site basketball courts are a great way to get some exercise with a little friendly competition.

For your convenience, a seasonal community shuttle is available to transport you from the beach to the tennis community, so you can forget the hassle of driving. A number of exclusive Sea Colony activities, camps, and entertainment is available for guests of all ages. Your group can have a blast by participating in dodgeball tournaments, sandcastle contests, bonfires, and even a special Kids’ Night Out with games, supervised swimming, and a summer camp feel.

The Sea Colony Tennis Center

While the sound of total relaxation and beachfront bliss is alluring enough to many travelers, what really sets our Sea Colony rentals apart is the award-winning Sea Colony Tennis Center. While these facilities are an excellent way for tennis enthusiasts to keep up their training or to hone their skills, they’re also a great place for beginners to learn. A number of programs and lessons are designed to suit every skill level, from just-for-fun to the ultimate challenge.

Resort guests have access to 34 tennis courts, both outdoors and indoors. There are even 14 Har-Tru courts, designed to dry quickly after it rains, and to keep temperatures 10 to 15 degrees cooler than a regular court—making them perfect for the warm Delaware summers. Sea Colony also has lighted courts so that you don’t have to call it quits when the sun sets, as well as four oceanside courts so you can play with beautiful views.

If you’re interested in taking lessons, you’re in luck. Sea Colony’s qualified instructors are here to help you hone your skills, whether you’re attending private or group lessons. Or maybe you’re looking to engage in a little friendly competition, in which case the frequent tournaments and round robins are just the ticket. And, if tennis isn’t for you, Pickleball is another popular pastime for guests of our Sea Colony rentals with special courts and lessons also available. Whichever sport you play, the on-site pro shop is available to get you equipped with everything you need to play.
