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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Everything you want in a property, was there: all appliances, linen. Kitchen utensils, books and games. Everything clean, like in a home. We were not vacationing but we wished we would have been to enjoy all the extras that the property offers. Best rental ever!

wonderful weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house....We (8 of us)had a quiet weekend spend in this spacious villa. The kitchen was amazing. All the utensils, pots and pans that you can imagine....the owners have it. We brought crabs off the fishing boats and get to used owner's kayaks. The owners were very responsive via email/txts. Couldn't have ask for a better rental. Will definitely rent this villa again. If you are looking to spend some R&R time with family, this is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Christine for taking the time to write such a nice review! We love to hear how our guests' vacations went. Glad the crabmen could suppy you - nothing better than right off the boat! Hope you and your family can find time to return. Teresa and Rocco

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.
