About the property

6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath on the canal surrounded by palms, short walk to beach

Updated, eclectic charm is only minutes from the beach and .8 mile from the restaurants, bars and shopping area on world famous Las Olas Blvd. Our 6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath home is located right on the canal 100 yards from the intercoastal waterway, secluded by the surrounding palms and 10 foot hedges. All of the normal amenities such as towels, linens, shower soap, and hair dryers are provided for a wonderful visit.

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.

VRBO

  • 5 of 5

This was undoubtedly the best VRBO experience I have ever had. I was in Fort Lauderdale for

a golf trip with a group of Friends. We have been taking this trip for over 8 years and this is the first time that we had no issues with the house. The location is perfect. The house is better in person then the pictures, and everything worked.

Lance was unbelievably responsive to any question we had, before, during and after our stay. Everybody on the trip agreed that this was the best place we have every stayed. We will be back.

Perfect house for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 guys for a golf trip. Everyone enjoyed the house and slept well. The layout of the house is perfect for a large group. Everything wraps around the center of the house: the kitchen and the outdoor space. The owner is very responsive and professional. The location is perfect and private. I highly recommend this home especially over a hotel! This is the way to go. The outdoor space was our favorite part. Owner gave us back our deposit immediately and we were impressed but the cleaniness and high quality furniture. Highly recommend

Annual Thanksgiving Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Location was fabulous! The indoor and outdoor spaces were great gathering spaces; large or small. Lance was very helpful and accommodating. Walking distance to Los Olas, the Beach and wonderful restaurants made this such a great location for such a large group. The outdoor space made for amazing evenings sharing our busy lives along with lovely days lounging in the sun, paddle boarding and just hanging out either in a group or reading a book in the hammock. We've been many places over the country and this is one of our favorites.

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

A total of 12 of us (8 adults & 4 small children) enjoyed this amazing property for one week. This was our first family vacation together in more than 20 years and it was wonderful. The area has something for everyone, beaches, restaurants, water tours.... we even went to a rodeo.

Lance was the perfect host. The little mansion, as the kids called it, has everything.

We'all definitely book again.

Family Refuge

  • 5 of 5

Once again, our family disappeared into this Paradise for 2 weeks. The purpose for our annual vacation is the gathering of 3 generations to be together. This home provides that in spades! There are separate rooms providing privacy when needed but also large gathering areas for when we came together. The pool table provided hours of fun competition and play. The outside pool was a daily gathering point all day, every day. The multiple ancillary supplies (floats, chairs, towels, kids toys, paddle boards) all add to an already luxurious stay. We hosted a cookout with local friends and had plenty of room. The location is exceptional. Close enough to the beach to "hop on over" for either time by the water or eating, but also walking distance to world-renowned Los Olas restaurants. The owner's response to every inquiry before, during and after our stay, in and of itself, makes this a top tier rental. I sent a query at 11 PM and had the solution before 10 the next AM. That's almost unheard of in the rental business. The website is incapable of capturing both the beauty and functionality of this home. Thank you Lance and Bill for providing such a great opportunity for our family!

Owner's Response: Dan, I am so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay. My father and I truly try to treat each guest how we would want to be treated if we stayed in the home. Thank you to you and your family for respecting the property and leaving it if not nicer then when you arrived. You and your family were ideal guest as well and I would love to have you guys back in the future. Respectfully, Lance Waldbueser

Car: not necessary

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.'
