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.

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!

  • 5 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!

  • 4 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!

Paradise in a quiet setting

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place to go to getaway - you virtually are alone on the beach - the kids are safe to play for hours, the tide is gentle, the wildlife is amazing. If you want crowds you just venture down the road 20 minutes or you enjoy the beauty of the undisturbed beaches. The house is perfect for all ages - all one level, no steps, good for older adults and small children.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from what our group determined to be the best vacation ever - and our 3 kids and 2 dogs can be picky! The cottage was perfect for us inside and out - and we've never stayed so close to the water. We spent our days enjoying the beach in front of the cottage where we saw many more dolphins than other humans. Dad even got the chance to surf fish most days and got our son hooked on reeling in dogfish. Our water-loving dogs will sleep for a week from all the swimming and seagull chasing. Amenities inside were exactly what we needed and yes, the TV is outstanding and blew our kids away, especially our 9 year old boy. The weather was pretty much perfect keeping us at the very clean and warm water beach. When we strayed away from our perfect beach on the one day it was overcast, we took our kids flounder fishing on a head boat from Indian River. We also ventured over to the big waves at Cape Henlopen for some boogie boarding where the water is still very cold but the kids had a blast. We booked this at the last minute and found the owner is very kind and gracious and the neighborhood small, quiet and truly relaxed. This place is very unique and special, nothing over the top and exactly what we hoped for! Not one single complaint and this can be a fussy bunch!

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.
