Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-9)
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.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Quaint little getaway
Although the horseshoe crab situation requires some getting use to, the overall experience was wonderful!!
This is a surprisingly large cottage since, from the outside, it doesn't especially appear to be. Very cute with all the basics. Very quiet neighborhood and uncrowded beach on the bay. Beautiful skies at sunset.
Thank you, Kerry, and I want to apologize for the TV and Smoke Detector problems.
I was a little sceptical at first about staying on the bay. Normally when we come to Delaware we stay on the ocean further down near Rehoboth or Bethany. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. If you want a peaceful and relaxing stay, this is the place to be. I could sit out on the front porch at pretty much any time of day or night and just hear nothing but birds and surf. There's not a lot of people around and none of the constant traffic and noise like at places further down
The beach is literally steps away. You can go fishing right there on the surf or down the road about half mile off the bridge. We had a nice fire out on the beach one night. You're centrally located so anywhere you want to go as far as shopping or out to eat, is not that far of a drive. There's some really good places to eat in Milton. Sandy is very responsive and gets right back to you pretty quickly if you have any questions or problems. The place is clean and comfortable. All in all I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a realxing vacation.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Great beach cottage!
We really enjoyed our stay! The house was as described and was in great condition upon arrival. The beach was great and just steps away from the house. It seems some upgrading was in progress - new refrigerator, huge TV. Overall great stay and I'd recommend to anyone looking for a beach getaway
Thanks for your great review! Believe it or not, the TV has been there for a few seasons and the refrigerator for at least two - but we appreciate you noticing their condition! We try to make the house as comfortable as possible and a place we would be happy to rent! All the best.
Nice beach cottage close to the water
Even though the weather was not as cooperative as we would have hoped, the cottage was very comfortable and enjoyable. We had some nice meals in Milton and a few nice walks on the beach between the rain showers. Overall we would rent this home again.
Thanks, Marie, for your review. I felt so sorry about your weather. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage and the area.
Amazing location for a quiet vacation!
We loved our vacation at this sweet little cottage! The location was perfect and just steps from the beach. The patio was situated so you still got a nice ocean breeze in the evening when sitting outside and using the Weber grill. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need.....there wasn't anything we looked for that we couldn't find. The cottage is only about 10-15 minutes from town but it felt so private and secluded. We loved it! The owner was extremely responsive and provided a lot of insider information so we were able to check out some local spots in town. I highly recommend this cottage for a quiet, dog-friendly, beach getaway.
Thank you for this wonderful review and I am glad you enjoyed the cottage and the area.
Best wishes with the baby (and labor and delivery!)! Parenting is a lot of work but great fun!
Come back some time!
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.
Delaware Paddlesports in Lewes will deliver and pick up rental kayaks. One of our renters said they were great! Call them at (302)645-7300 for further info.
