About Karen and Jeff Cross

Jeff and I (Karen) are the new owners of Villa Wenona. We are so excited. We have both enjoyed Maryland's Eastern shore for years. Jeff is a collector of wooden duck decoys and I grew up on the water. Jeff likes to fish, hunt, bird watching and of course decoy collecting. I like swimming, and biking, and nature adventures!

The picture above is my family reunion at Villa Wenona. We had a fantastic time with family coming from GA, CT, FL, NJ, PA and MD. What a great time!

Karen and Jeff Cross purchased this house in 2016

Why Karen and Jeff Cross chose Chesapeake Bay

Jeff and I fell in love with Villa Wenona the first time we saw it. The fantastic views, water access and low key life style. Lots of sunny days and wildlife. Great neighbors and friends.

Did you know that word, Wenona, comes from the Sioux Indians and means "a fun loving, spiritual, big hearted, sexy, ambitious, optimistic woman. Someone you can rely on when times are good and bad. What's not to love!!!

What makes this house unique

Villa Wenona is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy with friends and family. Lots of space in the house and outside. Activities for everyone! And the view, well I just can't say enough about the sunsets, boat watching and incredible views of the Bay. You will love it too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Karen!



Our family really enjoyed the lovely comforts of Villa Wenona - the house and yard were enjoyed by all! Vinnie and I enjoyed talking to Wanda too. We love crabs and ate them daily that we purchased from the crabbers. A real pleasure! Maybe we'll be in touch down the road.

Beautiful! Great for large groups! Kitchen is fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome home on Deal Island. Deal Island is a sleepy little, non commercial town. Our stay was in off season, and didn't see anyone else while there until Friday afternoon. The house is lovely. Plenty of room for large crowd.

Great times at Villa Wenona!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we vacationed at Villa Wenona on Deal Island and we loved it both times. We have a large family and there is plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen is great! The dining room table fit all of us comfortably. We saw an eagle fly into the trees on the property, hang out and eat a fish, several hummingbirds and beautiful sunsets all without even leaving the house. There is a beach about five minutes from the house that is beautiful. The locals are friendly and helpful. We loved it and hope to go back.

Beautiful home with a cooks dream kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 10 stayed at the Villa and we were never in each other's way! Living space in this home is so open and large. The kitchen is an absolute dream with any and every pot or pan you could want! No problem preparing meals for a large group! The sunroom off the kitchen was a favorite of the grandparents looking out at the water. Beautiful deck off of master bedroom and a huge rooftop deck. This home has everything. The caretaker is the sweetest lady, she stopped by to pick up trash and see if we needed anything at all. She also had a few lights on and the air turned on for our arrival on a hot day. We will be back to the Villa again in the future.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful stay! We have rented the Villa in the past! This visit exceeded the others, the home was very clean and ready upon our arrival!! Always a great start to your vacation! The Tropical Storm put a slight damper on outside activities for Saturday but we made up for that we a fresh bushel of CRABS! The Labor Day festivities went off in perfect weather and were enjoyed by all.

Thank you again!

Tammy, family and friends.

The Villa vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was huge and beautiful. The property was gorgeous. Had a nice sun room and had a sun roof with an awesome view. Had everything inside for a family with all amenities in the home. Right across the street from the water. We enjoyed the kayaks and the bikes. Loved the size of the kitchen my dad is a chef and loved it. Perfect size for a professional chef. Was a hour away from Ocean City that has everything to do. All the locals were very kind and fun. The owners were very reliable and got back to me right away if I had any questions. I would recommend this Villa to anyone who wants a get away and peace. Arby's by the dock is very nice has reasonable prices for food and drinks and the owner is very nice. Great place to go for a snack and some drinks.

Map

Car: recommended

Deal Island is a wonderful place to kick back and enjoy life. There are kayaks and bikes at the house. Two great beaches are close by and fishing charters are right down the road at the Wenona Harbor. Ocean City is about 1.5 hours away and Salisbury is about 30 minutes away with grocery stores and shopping, Ward Museum, and a free zoo!
