Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: After enjoying the rental of Serendipity I, Rick and I fell in love with Serendipity II which is larger and on a corner lot. We enjoy the easy beach access across the street and relaxing back at our home with a beautiful view of the Gulf. We are opening our home to rent so you can enjoy it as well. Rick is a Pittsburgh born sports enthusiast that turned Floridian at a young age. He has many fond childhood memories of times on the captivating Anna Maria Island. He is a great source for tickets to local sporting events, concerts or entertainment having worked in the industry for many years. Lyn is a native Floridian who moved from the East Coast of Florida to the West Coast to raise her family. She and Rick love to stay active and have often biked from Anna Maria down through Longboat Key. We look forward to making your stay at our home on Anna Maria Island a pleasant one that you will repeat for many years.

Why Anna Maria:
We love the quaint island feel with charming local shops and beautiful beaches so much that we are a little afraid to mention that Anna Maria Island was just voted # 4 Travelers' Choice 2013 Best Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Decorated and designed to make you feel comfortably home while enjoying the beautiful sand beach and spectacular sunsets. Elevator access to all floors, open decks and a large home for families to enjoy.
