About George La Rue

Hi Everyone, ALOHA! We are George and Sandy proud parents of 6 sons and 2 sweet granddaughters. Sandy retired as a school psychologist and George is a university professor. We welcome you to our Big Island vacation home and hope you can enjoy our local area for its beaches, body surfing, swimming, dancing, hiking, and biking.

George La Rue purchased this house in 2011

Why George La Rue chose Waikoloa Village

Sandy has connections with Hawaii from growing up in a military family on Oahu. We honeymooned and made family vacations on the different islands for years before we decided to retire on the Big Island. We like to be active and involved in our community. Our neighborhood is a well-established, thriving, and beautiful community with many active clubs and ways to volunteer as well as nearby services and shopping. You can feel how friendly and respectful neighbors are and see people walking, jogging, biking, gardening or relaxing with family and friends on their lanais. It feels like we are part of something bigger than just ourselves. Simply feels like we belong and we will spend the rest of our lives here.

What makes this house unique

We love our house because of the panoramic ocean and mountain views! The cooling trade winds and sunny skies make swimming outdoors and relaxing around the pool comfortable. We enjoy sitting underneath the night skies watching the moon and the stars. We appreciate life so much more every day by enjoying our Hawaiian home.

Large well spaced home, plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Three very large bedrooms, each with their own large bathrooms, all with double sinks and showers. One had a tub and shower. The kitchen has enough room for 4-5 people to be cooking and preparing meals at once. The living room has enough seating for 8 with a tabled sitting area as well. The lanais extend the length of the house adding to living space. There were times when we had trouble finding each other, it is that big.

We especially enjoyed the pool. Our family consisted of 3 adult couples and 9 month old baby. We never were in each other's way, there was always areas for privacy. The home is well maintained. There are all the necessities you need. The views are breath taking.

It was so hard to leave. We could not say enough great things about it.

Claudia the manager was very friendly and helpful, though our only contact was by phone.

The owners answered many questions and concerns we had promptly via email while we were booking and before our arrival.

My husband golfed 7 times at the nearby course, there is a pass that allows for a special rate. There is a shopping centre nearby that had groceries, gas, restaurant, and outdoor food court, etc. We found this most handy. The beaches nearby are all nice. We like the 3 beaches at the Mauna Lani resort the best. There are petroglyphs nearby that are worth seeing. There are walking paths at the King and Queens resort which we often went to in the evening. We went to the volcano, Kona, Manta Ray night dive, helicopter tour, Wild Ocean Adventure, Hilo, Wiamea, etc.

Overall our experience was truly enjoyable and we hope to be able to return. We would recommend this home to anyone. Our only regret was that we only stayed for 2 weeks.

Owner's Response: Aloha/Mahalo Deb, thank you wholeheartedly as you blessed us with your kind words about your recent vacation with us. We certainly enjoyed your outstanding review that highlighted how much you enjoyed the swimming pool. Carol maintains the pool so that it is sparkling and clean in spite of the winds at times. We are also glad we could accommodate 6 adults very nicely for socializing time as well as for privacy and even with a baby! George and I both high-fived on your comment *There were times when we had trouble finding each other, it is that big.* We are grateful that you found the house floor plan spacious, good for fixing meals together as well as relaxing on the lanais. We are so glad you found the location and amenities such a good fit for your adventures. We certainly appreciate your gratitude towards our property manager who does her best to make guests feel welcome and comfortable, and still protect their privacy. We especially like that you made frequent use of our Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Golf Course! Your Hawaiian vacation sounds like the one we wish for everyone! Your review also shows exceptional planning on your part to include so many great adventures in only 2 weeks time! Lots of activities are such a reward in and by themselves, but being able to unwind and enjoy relaxing at the house together afterwards is what sets us apart from your other lodging options in the area. Hope you can return some day to the Big Island and we would love you to choose to stay with us again! Mahalo! George and Sandy

Exactly as advertised!

We've rented through VRBO many times and have never been disappointed but this house was the best yet! The view on the lanai is AMAZING! The amount of living space outside is like having another room. We really enjoyed getting up in the morning and visiting while sitting on the lanai drinking our coffee. One thing we were pleasantly surprised with was how quiet it was. It is in a neighborhood and we expected the typical neighborhood hum but it was actually as if there were no neighbors at all. The drive down to the beach area (on the road we called "Goat Road") is short and staying in the house away from the touristy beach area was well worth the drive. The home is very large and spacious. Kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook our dinners at home. There are so many areas to eat that we would change dinner locations every night because we wanted to use the whole house! The other thing that some of us enjoyed was the baby geckos in the house. At least I think they were babies or just very small geckos. We had them in the bathrooms and one in the kitchen in a basket that hung out for awhile. So cute! If I had to say something that would make it even better would be to have more beach items such as beach chairs and floaties to take to the beach. But, that's very minor compared to what you get for the price! Also, the owners and managers are excellent to work with! We left on a Monday and received our deposit in the mail by that Friday! You can't get any quicker than that! We would definitely rent this house again if we return to this island.

Family Vacation 2014

We have a child with special needs and for our situation this property was perfect. Our son could roam around the house and property and we did not have to worry about him wondering off. This made this trip very enjoyable and relaxing for us which was exactly what we were after. The home was clean, very spacious and with fantastic views from all but one room in the house. Everything was very well maintained and the owners and managers all seemed very interested in making sure our stay was everything we expected. Grocery shopping was only a short drive away and fantastic beaches and resorts are within a 10 min drive. I would certainly recommend this property and we will certainly consider returning.

Owner's Response: Aloha to you and all your family! You were wonderful guests. We are so happy that your son enjoyed his time in Hawaii. It seemed the layout of our house ensured that your family could be together and relax. As enlightened parents you certainly were well prepared and experienced with meeting your son's needs. Henke and Claudia both appreciated how well behaved he was and responsive to you. They were happy to be of service to you in any way and were inspired by your parenting skills. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and we were happy to have you. We hope to have you stay with us again some time soon! Mahalo!

Lovely Property

We had a week at Georges house and found it very well equipped and very well presented. The house is large for a 3 bedroom and the lay out worked very well for us with a grown up son who had the bedroom on one side of the house with us and our daughter on the other, this would work really well for 2 families sharing the house as well. The pool area was very pleasant and the pool is a very good size. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Aloha Chris, Thanks for your time to review your recent stay with us. Your kindness is much appreciated regarding how you liked our vacation home. You really help other families to know that they can entertain family members at our house and still have private alone time as a couple. So glad you were able to make wonderful memories together. We enjoyed having you at our Big Island vacation home and hope you can do it again! Mahalo!

Amazing House with a Beautiful View and a private pool!

When we entered the front door, our reaction was, "Wow!". We knew from the pictures that this was a nice place, but seeing it first hand was breathtaking. It was better than expected. This is my dream home, in my dream location. We stayed for two weeks, and it really felt like home. We were able to do and see everything that we wanted each day. One day we traveled to the black sand beach. Two days snorkeling at "two step". Two days were shopping and dinner in Kona. One day was Hilo and Volcano National Park. Several days at Hapuna Beach. One day at Mauna Lani for the free Polynesian show. One day at Hilton Waikoloa for the dolphin show and swimming. Several pool days at the house, enjoying our family time. The location is perfect. We are a family of six (four kids), they loved the pool and hot tub, and the space to hang out. I have already recommended this place, and I am sure that some of our friends and family will soon be planning a trip to see for themselves. Thank you Sandy for being so helpful and informative and for making our Big Island family vacation perfect!

Where do you live?

Great Central Location!

The house was exactly as listed. Instructions to the house and getting in were easily understood. The house was very clean and had lots of room to relax inside and out. Owners were very informative about the area and property managers were available when needed. House was in a nice residential neighborhood and felt very private. Pool and hot tub were a plus. It's nice not to have to share with a hundred other families. Thank you for a wonderful stay and would definitely return again.
