About Lance 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, 1 grandson 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.

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.

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.'

paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here! This was the perfect house for our bachelorette weekend getaway! The house is beautiful and the rooms are all decorated so fun, it's something different in each room! The outside is really the best part - right on the water, the pool is amazing, tons of space to sit and a little dock area with some swinging seats to relax on in the morning with some coffee. The two wings of the house were perfect for our group to feel like we had enough of our own space without being on top of each other, but still close enough! Lance was amazing to work with and he answered all of our questions quickly. We could not have asked for a better weekend in Fort Lauderdale and any time I make my way back down here I would love to stay here again! The house is also fully equipped with everything for the beach, pool and kitchen essentials which made it really easy for all of us. Thanks again!

Great Time! Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family reunion at this beautiful home and it was great! The owner allowed us to come in 2 hours prior to check in since we all flew in from NY. The home is well kept and perfect for our group! The beach was conveniently close! We only had one problem the first night while grilling there was not a spare gas tank to replace so we had to cook the remainder of our dinner inside. We received one the next day with no hesitation! We built memories to last us a lifetime! If back in the area I would rent again!

Great Southern Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We were here for a guys weekend, and the 7 of us had a blast. The house has plenty of space and the pool was very nice. It's just a short trip over the bridge to all of the bars and it's just down the road from nice restaurants. We highly recommend staying here.

Great family reunion site

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at the Villa - our favorite feature was the number of bathrooms. Great outdoor space for congregating, fully stocked kitchen and roomy TV room. The beds were comfortable, but one of the upstairs beds was an unexpected double.

The home could use a thorough head to toe maintenance as many small things needed attention, but didn't detract from our overall comfort. 4 stars for the good fit with our family.
