About Ben LaRocco

We are Ohio natives and former Capitol Hill staffers living and raising a family in Washington, DC.

Ben LaRocco purchased this house in 2015

Why Ben LaRocco chose Colonial Beach

Colonial Beach is where we come to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Only and hour and a half drive, but a world away, Colonial Beach reminds us of our childhood playing on the beaches in quaint towns on the Lake Erie shore.

We want to open up our home to you so that you too can enjoy the fun and family memories that we create every time we visit.

What makes this house unique

The porch is what made us fall in love with this property, but the flexibility, size, and location make it a sparkling gem on Colonial Beach. With historic charm in the original house, this is one of the largest properties available for rent in Colonial Beach, with plenty of space for the whole extended family.

With a perfect location, this property is just close enough to everything to be convenient, but just far enough away to have privacy, peace and quiet.

Excellent Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's second visit! It is a perfect house for mixed ages. We had enough room for grandparents, parents and adult kids and 1 little one. We have a 3 yr old granddaughter who wakes up very early. Since there are two sections for sleeping in the house she does not disturb the rest of the family that wants to sleep in or vice versa.

Our family loves the location for it's lack of materialism. We can enjoy the beach and each other without getting caught up in the commercial side of beach vacations. Tons of fun!

Probably the best house we've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented houses in many countries, and this was probably the best. Spacious, clean, quiet, with comfortable beds. The icing on the cake for us was the swing on the covered porch - a great place to sit and read. Colonial Beach is a small, friendly town; this property is within walking distance of a number of restaurants and of course very close to an excellent sandy beach, but far enough away from the center to be quiet and relaxing. We spent a wonderful week doing almost nothing and were very sorry to leave. There were only two of us, so I can't comment from experience on what it would be like if there were children staying, but I think it should work very well. It is large and spread out, and should accommodate a large family very easily, especially as there is a yard with swings, and of course the very close beach.

We would happily come back, and recommend it to friends

Ben, the owner was very helpful and welcoming

Nearest Beach
Colonial Beach
Car: recommended

Colonial Beach is a quiet, scenic, and historic town on the Potomac River in the Northern Neck area of Virginia and Chesapeake Bay. It is a leisurely golf cart community, with the kind of charm where time slows down, perfect for connecting with family or relaxing with a good book. There are several restaurants to serve many palates and preferences, and the second largest public beach in Virginia.
