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 Bethany Beach

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

Perfect family beach trip!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly set up for families with young children. Plenty of space, lots of toys and beach gear already there to use and a fun trolley ride to the beach. Highly recommend.

Outstanding owner

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, well laid out place. Owner, Roy, is very quick to respond to questions. Sea colony has activity fees that you have to pay to get parking passes even if you don’t use the services. I’m pretty sure it said that on the ad. You are getting trolley service (in the summer), and access to pools (indoor and outdoor, some heated), gyms, tennis courts and lots of nice walking/biking trails and, of course, the beach for those fees, though.

We especially liked that we could walk into Bethany—it’s under 2 miles—perfect for burning off the ice cream you eat. Thanks to Roy and vrbo for having our family together in a comfortable place with a decent kitchen, plenty of table space, good WiFi, and good dvd/vcr access to watch movies.

Sea colony and Bethany beach is family time at its best!!!

  • 4 of 5

The Property was well located and convenient for our use as we walked to the fitness center and indoor pool. Although interior was somewhat dated, the floor plan layout of the unit worked well for seven of us. We always enjoy sea colony visits and time on the beach no matter what the weather is doing. We look forward to another visit this summer.

We returned for a 2nd year because of the great time we enjoyed the previous year. Again, our experience was outstanding. The owner is very gracious and incredibly accommodating; the property is beautiful; the location is outstanding. We especially enjoyed being within a few minutes walk of the outdoor lap pool and fitness center. Thank you!! for another incredible vacation!!!!

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for a family with young children (or anyone for that matter). Everything you need is there--from beach chairs/umbrellas to kids toys to board games to kitchen/laundry supplies and more. The owner Roy went out of his way to accommodate us and could not have been a more gracious host. He was always accessible and replied within minutes to questions. The property was super convenient--the Sea Colony tram stop was steps from the house. And the extras for little kids--such as bedrails and a gate at the top of the stairs--made the trip extra easy. I look forward to staying here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Francine for the kind review.... I am glad you took advantage of the bed rails and gate. I hope that these family and child friendly touches made the stay more comfortable. I encourage my guests to ask questions before and during the visit so that I can help you get the most out of Sea Colony and Bethany Beach. I look forward to hosting your family in the future.....Roy
