About Sandy Zelensky

My husband grew up in Milton, DE which is the next town over. We live north of Baltimore and wanted a getaway and eventually a place to retire!

Sandy Zelensky purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Sandy Zelensky chose Prime Hook Beach

Primehook beach is quiet and the people are friendly. It is away from hustle and bustle but you can drive to get anything you want in about 10-20 minutes.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the privacy and quiet. It is also a safe place for kids to be able to ride their bikes, swim, walk the beach, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Also stayed in August 2010.



We very much enjoyed our time here! Our welsh terrier loved the beach.

Lovely Quiet Place

  • of 5
We really enjoyed our long weekend at this cottage hugging the dune and right on the beach. You can't beat it's location and ease of access.

Some of the things we just loved: big, new windows looking right into the dune/bay and out to the side to the beach; the big flat-screen TV - wow; great wifi; sleeping on the daybed in the sun room - what a lovely place to wake up; comfortable glider chair in sun room (perfect for my elderly mother); the accessibility for my mother who uses a rolling walker and a regular walker; terrific new patio with views to both bay and wildlife refuge; being able to bring our dog - so, so fantastic; owner's quick response to my questions and calls; friendly, helpful neighbors.

This is a simple, rustic cottage with some updates. The kitchen and its equipment are basic. The furniture a mix of old/worn and new. No closets. No washer/dryer. No dishwasher. This didn't bother us. If you need and require sleek luxury or more than basic amenities, don't come here.

If you want sky, water, dunes, beach, quiet, fresh air, birds (I've never seen so many blue herons and egrets in one place), simple pleasures, no stairs, and a place where you can bring your dog, then this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words, Joanne. FYI, we already have a washer/dryer (new) but will have it installed when we have the bathroom redone. We are glad you and your Mom enjoyed!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
Thanks! We had a wonderful time. This place was fantastic with kids and a dog. It was so easy to get in and out on the beach and have a relaxing family vacation. It's also a great location to be able to easily get down to Lewes or Funland at Rehobeth. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware for easy dinners and the kids loved discovering the various games and books in the house.

Soooooo relaxing!

  • of 5
Dear Sandy,
We loved staying in your cottage! The Prime Hook Nature Preserve is such a gem! The cottage was perfectly comfortable for my husband, my son and I. For a couple of nights, our daughter and her boyfriend joined us too. We fished, we kayaked, we skimmed, we tanned and we relaxed! What a wonderful getaway, hidden behind much farm land. Thank you! We hope to rent your cottage again soon!
Fondly, Ken and Cynthia

Amazing familly/dog friendly beach, house and view!

  • of 5
The house is small and compact, but has everything that is needed for a fun relaxing vacation. We were a little disappointed to not have a tv (maybe we didn't try hard enough to figure out how to use it). The bed in the main bedroom and the daybed were not comfortable. The major problem was that the last people to use the home had a cat that peed in the same spot and smelled the whole house up. Someone tried to clean it up (at the end of the stay) so we came to a house with a big wet spot in it. The disgusting smell was everywhere and stayed for at least 3 days pretty bad. We bought something to take the smell away and kept cleaning the spot. Also there was dog hair /cat hair everywhere/ One of our grandchildren is allergic to dog and cat hair so we had to buy something to clean the hair up immediately. So we ended up having to clean the house and work at getting rid of the smell several days. There are several loose tiles in the bathroom that should be taken care of before the tiles are broken and cannot be used. The grass looks pretty roudy. We loved the area.

Owner's Response: Hi Jim,
I am so sorry you had so many problems...why didn't you call me?(my phone number is on the rental agreement) or email me?...you had wi-fi in the cottage. The TV is fine and I would've been happy to help you over the phone. We live two and a half hours away but have family and a cleaning crew in the area that would have addressed any smell or hair. The rental agreement states that
"If the premises appear dirty or damaged upon Check-in, Guest shall inform Homeowner immediately." The cleaning crew cleans between rentals and the lawn should have been mowed. You are the first to complain about the mattresses in four years! We are redoing the bathroom this fall/winter. We wanted to get it done before the current rental season but there were no installers available.

Exceeded my expectations!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time renting a house/cottage on the beach. I was very apprehensive and did not know what to expect. Well this was the best experience ever and I will be back next year. My girls and I had such a wonderful, relaxing time and the cottage was cozy and quaint. We actually went to Rehobath beach for the day and the girls wanted to go back to prime hook! We loved all the wildlife which made my mornings runs breathtaking. We will be back!

Because Prime Hook is a national wildlife refuge, there are lots of birds that migrate through. You can bird watch on the road coming in to the beach area; visit the small museum at the Prime Hook NWR headquarters; launch boats and canoes there and use the photography blind to take wildlife photos. You can also launch boats up at Slaughter Beach, about 7-10 miles away.
