About Shawn & Heather La Rue

We a family of four from Ontario, Canada. We love to travel to Florida to enjoy the Florida sunshine, Walt Disney World theme parks, golf and the beaches both on the Atlantic coast and the gulf side of Florida.

Shawn & Heather La Rue purchased this house in 2011

Why Shawn & Heather La Rue chose Davenport

We purchased this property because of its close proximity to all that Orlando has to offer as well as the peace and quiet of the Sandy Ridge development. We love Walt Disney World and golfing so this property was perfect. We have enjoyed decorating and maintaining this home to offer our guests a memorable place to vacation in Florida.

What makes this house unique

After a busy day at the theme parks, golf or shopping, it is great to return to this spacious 5 bedroom, three bathroom home with fully-equipped kitchen, laundry, private pool and lanai overlooking the pond and conservation area in the backyard. Our home features a BBQ for meals cooked poolside. For families with small children, we have a stroller, pack-n-play (playpen), high chair and a playground park just steps away. We love that we can spend time together here with family and friends and invite you to do the same. As well, we offer complimentary Tim Horton's coffee for your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We returned again this year and plan on coming back in 2013. This house has everything we are looking for and is close to all of the attractions central Florida has to offer. Our new favorite restaurant is Chili's, just 8 minutes away and there are some good deals on golf rates. Took the kids and grand kids this year and the pool was the main attraction. Looking forward to our next trip.

I knew from your pictures that this would be the perfect place to spend our pre-Christmas vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Your house exceeded our expectations with the beautifully decorated rooms with ensuite bathrooms in the two king sized master suites. The playroom was a perfect place for the grandsons and their father and my husband to unwind. We had plenty of space for our family and especially enjoyed the added touch of a lighted Christmas tree! Every detail was perfectly planned with your communication. We will definitely return in the near future as well as our other family members who will be planning their trips based on our wonderful raves and pictures we sent them regarding our experience staying here. We couldn't ask for a better time even though my son with the new baby wasn't able to attend.

It was a great stay and feel so at home. Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! There was 10 of us 5 kids and 5 adults and there was plenty of room for everyone plus the playroom was really a hit for the kids. The pool is also relaxing after a long day in Disney World. Without a doubt I would definitely want to go back to this house again and would recommend this place to everyone.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family had a great stay at Mr. LaRue's vacation home. It is just like you see it in the VRBO website. Great location in Davenport, Fla.. Thanks for the accommodations and prompt service when we had some questions. I would recommend this home for your families visit to the Disney world area. Thank you, The Sheehy Families, Cincinnati

Not sure if I would stay here again

  • 3 of 5

This was a comfortable clean house. The showers and beds were clean and comfortable. the high chair and pack n play was so convenient. There was plenty of towels and extra blankets.

The things I was not okay with was the fact we couldn't use the pool because it was cold and the heater for the pool we didn't have access to it. Just a suggestion maybe you could put the heater on a timer? There were no floats for the kids so even if we wanted to use it we would have to go buy those.

Also the toaster was broken, it burnt the toast because it didn't pop up automatically by itself, Iwalked away and the smoke alarms went off.

Also for what we paid (as well as a cleaning fee) it's a little ridiculous that we had to practically do half the cleaning. (strip beds, put all linens in the laundry room, start load of laundry take out all trash) and be out by 10am! Normally check out in hotels are 11 and you don't have to do any cleaning or stripping of beds. It was very hectic trying to make sure all that was done we were packed and taking care of our small children. Hope this review helps others who don't want to do the cleaning after you pay a cleaning fee. Despite the negatives it was a comfortable house to stay in.

Owner's Response: Hello Sam, I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. I will have the toaster looked at and replaced right away if needed. Pool heat is listed as an option when booking a reservation and you did not request pool heat for your reservation. Our check out policy time is necessary to be able to get the house ready for the next vacationer as it takes much longer to clean a house then a hotel room. I hope this clarifies some of your questions as staying in a house is quite a bit different then staying in a hotel. Shawn La Rue
