About Lance waldbueser

Now living in Florida so I can't help but also be a Gator and Heat fan.

Lance waldbueser purchased this house in 2012

Why Lance 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.

Holiday in paradise

  • 5 of 5

From before arrival through our stay and after we left our host made sure everything was covered and smooth sailing. Our family had big meals at the wonderful long dining room table.

We had space both indoors and out with private nooks with charming fanciful decoration everywhere. We also felt part of the hosts family with all the memorabilia and toys.

The beautiful beach was close and our walks up and down seven isles were full of jaw dropping houses yachts cars and foliage.

Our family of 12 can't wait to come back next year.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons and their families(nine of us) vacationed In this lovely home in Ft. Lauderdale in February, 2016. We had such a great time and I can't say enough about this house and the amenities. We loved that the house had two different wings with plenty of room and privacy for us all. The three grandchildren and the rest of us spent hours in the heated pool. The house has an alarm on every door leading to the pool which we appreciated since we had two non-swimmers. The kids loved the trampoline and the outdoor playhouse with the kitchen and bar stools and the adults spent lots of time in the outdoor spaces. We all enjoyed the pool table and the large comfortable family room with the huge TV. The piano was great to have for a family gathering. The kitchen was well stocked and the large table in the dining room could accommodate us all for meals. We all liked this house because of its proximity to restaurants that we could walk to as well

Professional management, prompt replies, great customer service

  • 5 of 5

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we unfortunately had to cancel our stay; however, I felt it important to share my experience with Bill. From the initial reservation request through to my cancellation, I received excellent customer service and thorough communication. My deposit was refunded immediately and I was treated with the utmost respect regarding our need to change our plans. I would definitely consider working with Bill again if I should get the opportunity.

Las Olas Paradise Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend and had the best time imaginable. Bill was an excellent host, he walked us on and gave us a tour and then we did not see him again. He was responsive to all our questions and even allowed us to check out late as some of our guests had a later flight in the day. The extra time was something he did not have to do! The house is beautiful and in perfect shape, everything was clean and the outdoor area was able to accommodate 15 of us with room to spare. I would highly recommend this home to anyone!

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.'
