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 here, you will understand 'why this is paradise.' 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 only go for a couple of hours and come back for a nap or just spend the whole day. The corner lot gives us beautiful 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.

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.

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
This house is fantastic and very kid-friendly. We stayed there with 3 small children (3, 5, and 7) and they couldn't have had more fun. We rarely left the house: the pool is wonderful, the bedrooms interesting and fun, and there's plenty to keep little children busy. The listing doesn't go far enough promoting how great these accommodations are. We also had 2 dogs and the property is perfect for well-behaved dogs. Enjoy! We sure did.

Owner's Response: Rod, It was a pleasure having you and your family stay in our home during your family wedding weekend. I'm glad your children enjoyed the trampoline, swing set, tree house, sliding board and swimming pool. I would love to have you stay in my home again soon. By the way, you left your sandals by my pool and if you want them shipped to you, please let me know.

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, Holiday Festivals, and New Years Eve celebrations with fireworks only add to the normal, everyday excitement. It's a exciting place for fun loving people of all ages to visit. There's no place like it. Many visitors just call it 'paradise.'
