About Rodney Alexander

Hello! I am a sales manager for a Fortune 500 Company and am thrilled that you are interested in possibly renting our vacation property. My wife (Alicia) and I have 3 wonderful daughters and a puppy. Fletcher, the English Lab you see in the picture recently went to doggy heaven but he was such a part of our lives when we visited Chincoteague we saw this picture and thought he should be a part of the greeting since he was such a happy and fun loving dog to all. We currently reside in Hockessin, DE but I have been vacationing in Chincoteague since I was 5 years old. Chincoteague has so much to offer in what I like to do (i.e. fishing, boating, beach, claming, crabbing, jogging, biking, etc) that it makes it hard to leave when we visit.

Rodney Alexander purchased this house in 2009

Why Rodney Alexander chose Chincoteague

Once you see Rachel's Delight you will see why it is an attraction on the island. Ever since I was a little boy I had always admired the house with the big white pillars. It is literally one of the larger homes on the island so when it came up for sale back in 2009 I gathered my wife and my father up to find the means to purchase. We lucked out and the rest is history.

What makes this house unique

Rachel's Delight is spacious so you will find plenty of room to get away for privacy or to congregate with family / friends. It's convenience to Main Street really make the home a special place since it takes away the hassle of parking and managing busy streets.

Great property for the price

  • 5 of 5

The house is huge. It’s very dated inside but that was part of the fun! The people are super easy to work with and very nice. The rooms were great. King bed upstairs was really comfy but it does get a little warm in the house. Bathrooms were fine but showers a little rusty. Very convenient to everything and the kitchen and living room are great to sit and hang out. We would definitely go here again and feel it was a steal

Great location, well equipped, and room to spread out and to hang out

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family birthday celebration on Chincoteague Island! The three generations of our family had an enjoyable weekend in this comfortable, spacious home. Great location, well equipped, and room to spread out and to hang out. The owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome.

Nice location and great space for family time

  • 4 of 5

We had a reunion of 5 adults in this large home. Lots of room to spread out! The kitchen was fully equipped which we enjoyed. We were sad we could not light the fire on the cold windy days. There were plenty of beds to choose from, some could stand to be upgraded....

The house was easy to find and was in walking distance of quaint shops and coffee shops.

Older Home Charm

  • 4 of 5

Very happy to have rented this place and would happily do so again. It's a lovely home with lots of room. A very comfortable and homey place to stay. So so so much better than a room or suite at a hotel, etc., in my view. A few things of which to be mindful and some if which I am confident the owner will be getting to as he has the opportunity (none of which caused any particular problem).

There is no working light at the back entrance(s) of the house, which is where you park and enter. You may want to leave a light on inside the entrance when out at night. The rear entrance door latch (porch) tends not to catch. Be sure to lock the deadbolt for security. The downstairs bathroom faucet wouldn't shut off completely - caused no problems - just an observation. The master bedroom mattress was unusable due to it strangely lumping up across much of it. We stripped it down to see if we could fix it, but it seemed to be something about the integral topper. This posed no problem for us since there were so many other beds to use! We just used those instead. The sofas look good but in our opinion are due for replacement from being used so much over the years. They provide little comfortable seating and support as they are. That having been said, we spent a lot of time in the kitchen area, around the table, because it was so welcoming and comfortable there.

This is an older house, apparently a vacation home, and should not be thought of as being like staying in a hotel that gets attention every day. My personal home was built in the 1850s, and it actually creeped out some of our city friends who came to stay with us! This house is a hundred years newer and a very nice place, but not a daily residence. Just be mindful of that.

In short, if you want lots of space at a good location for a reasonable price and you can live with some minor imperfections, this is a good place to stay. As I said at the beginning, we would happily rent it again (assuming the owner would let us after our positive yet frank review)! :-)

We loved our stay on Chincoteague, and we loved coming home to this house each evening.
