About Rocco Rella

We purchased this land in 2004, but didn't begin building until 2006. The house was completed in 2010 as Rocco had to come down from Brooklyn for a week or two at a time to work on the construction. It was always his dream to build a house and apparently Rocco dreams big! He left Italy when he was 12, but the house definitely shows his Italian roots. He loved working with the concrete and loved that the house is strong - Hurricane 5 proof in fact.

Rocco Rella purchased this house in 2004

Why Rocco Rella chose Deal Island

Rocco had looked for land up and down the east coast, starting at St. Michaels. However, the peace and quiet of Deal Island, plus the view of the bay was what won his heart. He saw it on his own first, then drove down with Teresa to show it to her the following weekend. We decided that day to purchase the land.

What makes this house unique

Now that the house is complete, we enjoy moving from sunroom to deck to the balcony off the bedroom. Sometimes we just enjoy sitting on the stoop at the front door and watching the birds. The peace and quiet of Deal Island and the comforts of Villa Wenona restore us every time we visit.

Fantastic house for New Years

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing house! We went with two other families (two couples, and one family with two kids) and our dog. We've never been in a better-stocked rental home, ever. The kitchen was amazing, and we got a lot of warmth and use out of the fireplace. We watched shooting stars from the roofdeck and froze our cookies off, we walked to the hidden beach and let our dog run wild, we cooked fabulous dinners. We would definitely recommend this house to others and would love to stay there again next year.

The Untouched Eastern Shore

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a vacation on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Deal Island and Villa Wenona are the place to go. Having spent more than 30 years sailing and boating on the Chesapeake Bay (mostly in the mid-bay around Annapolis, Kent Island, St. Michaels and Oxford) I was amazed at the really untouched beauty of Deal Island. And our experience at Villa Wenona, and with its owners Rocco and Teresa, made our weekend even more pleasurable. The house was very nice - large, well maintained, including bed linens, towels, and a fully equipped kitchen. The roof terrace is perfect for watching the sunset and the stars come out. There are kayaks, bikes and lots of good information on what to do and where to go locally. Deal Island is really a little slice of what most of the Eastern Shore used to be. There are no trendy restaurants and expensive boutiques a la St. Michaels. But there is a wharf full of working boats and watermen and a boat ramp. And a great little cafe, general store, Arbys, full of friendly locals and most necessities (beer and ice). The island also has two very nice public beaches (which are rare on the Chesapeake) where you can swim and fish. One beach, hidden away from public access, is a hidden gem. It goes on for a mile, at least, and the white sand and clear water make you think you are in the Bahamas or the Cayman Islands. If you're tired of the crowded condos and expensive beach rentals of Ocean City and St. Michaels, get a taste of the real Eastern Shore via the friendly, helpful owners of Villa Wenona.

Beautiful, tranquil, relaxing, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have just returned from one of the nicest vacations we have had in a long time! Our week at Villa Wenona was simply outstanding. The house is beautifully located at the end of Deal Island with water views that are amazing. The peacefulness and natural beauty of Deal Island is just a piece of heaven on earth. The house itself is so large and lovely, we loved the openess of it and the view of the bay from the sunroom is gorgeous. The kitchen is fantastic and so well stocked with every kitchen item you can think of! We had our entire family with us and everyone was comfortable and we never once felt crowded or on top of one another. We enjoyed the roof deck so much. We spent many mornings enjoying the sun and the view and spent many evenings just enjoying how beautiful the stars are in the big, clear night sky. The fire pit in the backyard was a huge hit with the young adults. I enjoyed taking our dog for walks behind the house in the evening where the Wenona Harbor is located and seeing the fisherman, their skipjacks and watching them working with their catches from the day. Our favorite thing was the beautiful little hidden beach that was basically our own each day we went. My husband connected with some of the locals and we had a some of the best blue crabs, crab cakes and sweet corn that we feasted on at the Villa at the wonderful dining table. We also took a day trip to Ocean City, only an hour away, to do the rides and get our favorite fare on the Boardwalk. Everyone, young and old, had a marvelous time and we didn't want to leave!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful Tuscan Villa Home. Dream of ours to go to Italy and we were almost there. Lots of great amenities. Wonderful kitchen with the benefit of two refrigerators. Beautiful view, large lovely yard, pet friendly, quiet, great fishing, crabbing and place to reconnect with family. The area is quaint and the local people very friendly and helpful. We are as impressed with the hospitality of the owners as well as the home. The Owners extended such consideration and kindness to our family during a very difficult family situation. The caretakers Wonda, Dave, and their son were wonderful. Owners and caretakers were always available by phone for any questions or recommendations regarding area. Our family spent a wonderful week together. The home was so inviting, felt like we were borrowing it from family for the week. Plan to return.

Villa Wenona

  • 5 of 5
Most excellent house on Deal Island! LOVED every detail! The pictures only hint at the stunning villa waiting for you! Dreaming about the vacation was just the beginning. Living the dream was more than we had imagined! Not a touristy town. Friendly people. Small community. Lovely views. On the water. Private beaches nearby. Fishing, boating, crabbing, walking. Never have to leave the house. Games, excellent kitchen, piano. The best tree swing ever! Hammock. Lawn furniture and fire pit. Large grill. Many decks. Family fun! Hope to return SOON!!!

Wonderful relaxing time

  • 5 of 5
The house was just as nice as the pictures well equipped and very comfortable. It was a wonderfully quiet location. We enjoyed the kayaks and went out for several trips. The house amenities were great - loved having 2 refrigerators as the food stores are very far away. You must visit Arby's and have a chat with the locals. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. We also crabbed for the first time and had a nice crab dinner (was very happy to find the crab steamer at the house). The sunsets from both the deck and the sunroom were just lovely. We did take a day trip to Crisfield but was disappointed to find that the restaurants are only open from Thursday through the weekend off season. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place for you. I have recommended this property to my friends
