About Bill Waldbueser

I am a Retired Army Officer who came to Ft. Lauderdale on business in 2002, loved the area and never return north. I am now a local business owner. Married 37 years, with 5 children, 7 grand daughters and loving wife. Graduated from West Point and then from the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs! Now living in Florida so I can't help but also be a Gator and Heat fan.

Bill Waldbueser purchased this house in 2012

Why Bill Waldbueser chose Fort Lauderdale

Once you vacation at Ft Lauderdale Beach, you will understand 'why this is paradise.' And you will be staying at the most perfect location in the nation's most relaxing city. I rented homes for two years in this area waiting for this particular location to go up for sale. When it finally did, I bought it the first week on the market. You will love it also.

What makes this house unique

The close proximity to the beach make it easy to visit the beach for a couple of hours and come back for a nap or just spend the whole day. The corner lot gives us beautiful outdoor views on three sides of the home. The hedges on 3 sides provide extreme back yard and pool privacy. While eating breakfast on the upstairs bedroom balconies, we have great views of the canal and Seven Isles Lake.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5
It can be quite challenging to make a large group of girls happy, but this house perfectly fit the bill! We had plenty of room to spread out both indoors and outdoors. The pool and deck are extremely nice and spacious, as is the kitchen and living room (where everyone ends up congregating). You have a nice view of the water, and it is very quiet back there. The owner was also unbelievably helpful with our plans. The beach hopper provided easy, cheap transportation around town -- we wouldn't have known about it if he hadn't been so organized with his recommendations! Every question we had, the owner was prepared with suggestions! We needed an easy, delivered meal our first night, and the owner recommended the most delicious pizza place. The house is awesome, but you're getting even more than a house here. You're getting a pre-planned vacation!

Bachelorette party weekend!

  • 5 of 5
The house was amazing! There were 16 girls there and everything was perfect- the pool was amazing, and the house was too. Looks just like the pictures, well kept and clean. It was in a fabulous location, very easy for taxis, ubers to access. We used the "beach hopper" service suggested by the owner and they were great- I would definitely recommend using them to get around. You could walk about a mile to the beach, but we just used the shuttles. The owner was EXTREMELY helpful and very easy to communicate with. He always answered my emails immediately and answered all my questions. He and his daughters did multiple things to make our stay perfect and really went out of their way to make life easy on us. For example, they obtained two big coolers for us to take to the beach after I asked for coolers. The owner's daughter also met a grocery delivery service at the house before we arrived as I arranged for groceries to be delivered to the house since we did not have a car to go grocery shopping ourselves. When we got there, everything was neatly organized and all the food was waiting in the fridge and the counter. I was so thankful that the owner and his daughter helped me out with this and it made our stay so much more relaxed and enjoyable. I was extremely impressed by this. One of the girls left her bluetooth speaker case and charger behind when we left the house, and the owner mailed this to her at no charge. He was really fantastic to deal with.

Our security deposit was returned almost immediately with no issues. I would recommend this house to anyone!

Owner's Response: I appreciate you taking the time to write such kind words. It is really nice when someone recognizes and acknowledges the efforts we make to help every one of our guests have the perfect vacation, weekend get away, bachelorette party, etc. Thank you for expressing your gratitude and I look forward to having you and anyone else from your party come back for a return visit.

Great stay in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place for 8 adults and a toddler prior to leaving on a cruise. This was the perfect location, and the perfect spot! The home was just as it was shown in the pictures. The kitchen was great for lots of cooks...as we all like to be in the kitchen. We utilized everything from the pool and paddleboards to the washer and dryer. The two green iguanas running around the pool were a real treat for all of us, since we don't have them where we live. The house is quite spacious, so everyone had plenty of space.
Although the surrounding area is beautiful with many restaurants and shops, we spent most of our time at the home.
Bill was great to work with. He quickly responded to any questions we had.
We would recommend this home to our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for another outstanding rating. I am really glad that your group of 8 manly Minnesota men had such a great weekend fishing, golfing and hitting the beach. I thought it was really interesting that you came to Ft Lauderdale to escape the Minnesota cold and it was already MAY! :) Come back again any time.

Perfect destination for fishing and golfing

  • 5 of 5
We have an annual fishing trip that we set up each year and this year we decided on Fort Lauderdale. The house is the perfect base camp for our group, equipped with a pool, 5 bedrooms and in walking distance from the beach and bars/restaurants. It is also very close to the airport - about $15 or so in cab fare. I also found the owner to be accommodating and fair to us throughout the stay. Overall, I would recommend this house and describe it as my favorite vacation destination in Florida.

Owner's Response: Micheal, thank you for the nice comments. Your are really not exaggerating as the location really is the best in Ft. Lauderdale. Although the house is an outstanding place to spend mornings, afternoons, and evenings; the location allows guests to walk to the beach or downtown area to enjoy a change. Hope to see you again.

Perfect Rental for Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property for my Daughter’s wedding weekend. The house just fit 5 couples along with 2 small children – there was plenty of room for the 4 teens to crash in one of 2 common areas . The location is perfect, just north of Las Olas and downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Although you could walk to the beach, it made more sense for us to drive and park along A1A. The back yard and pool area is quite the oasis perfect for outdoor meals and entertaining. We took full advantage of utilizing the dock space along the canal to ride the set of stand-up paddleboards that came with the house. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything from glassware to spices for cooking. Three AC zones allowed us to control each section of the house separately. The laundry room was spacious and comes equipped with what seemed to be a brand new front-loading washer & dryer. Parking allowed us to fit 3 (potentially 4 small cars) in the drive way with plenty of space on the street. Bill was able to answer all our questions during and after the rental process. He was very easy to work with and accommodated several of our special needs. The pictures and description were on-point and we were happy with all the results. I would definitely recommend this rental to any large family or couples retreat who is looking to stay nearby the action, but in a private setting.

The Seven Isles area of Las Olas Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale is a combination of day time 'laid back beach life' with the beach, deep sea fishing, paddle boarding and boating all within walking distance, and exciting night life. The well groomed streets lined with tropical foliage and palm trees frame the scenic canals and intracoastal waterway lined with yachts of all sizes. The monthly street festivals and concerts, the annual world renowned, largest US Boat Show, Memorial Day Beach Party, July 4th Beach Party and Fireworks Display, Holiday Boat Parade, Ice Skating and Festivals, and New Years Eve Orange Drop and celebrations with fireworks only add to the normal, everyday excitement. It's an exciting place for fun loving people of all ages to visit. There's no place like it. Many visitors just call it 'paradise.'
