About Rick or Lyn Puskas

Rick and I purchased this beautiful beachfront home for our family to use for holidays. We are opening up our home to you for rent while we can't use it.

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.

Rick or Lyn Puskas purchased this house in 2015

Why Rick or Lyn Puskas chose Anna Maria Island

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 received several travel awards: Conde Nast Readers' Choice Awards Top 30 Islands in the World

2014 Forbes Prettiest Towns in America

2014 Business Insider #3 Best Island in America

What makes this house unique

UPDATE: February 2016 - Happy to report that the re-model is Complete and we are welcoming guests to our warm sunshine. Beach Front 4 Bedroom, 4&1/2 Bath with a heated pool and elevator

Guestbook comments from the owner

Happy to report the flooring is in and the cabinets are on their way this Thursday. Also thrilled to report the pool permit was approved today. Excited to post new pictures by the end of this week.

This is the 3rd property I've rented from Rick and Lyn Puskas-Serendipity 1,2& 3. Each one exceeded expectations! We could not have asked for more! We totally enjoyed the luxery vacation. We especially enjoyed being right on the beach this time. Amazing that we could see sunrise AND sunset from our balcony! Thank you for paying attention to every detail! Can't wait to come back!!

Love this house.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house. We were so happy with everything about this home. Everything you could want, except fishing poles, were here for your use. So amazing we would love to rent again. Only advise would be to make sure you get the damage insurance. We were charged with damaged sheets ?????? don't know what that was for $175. We didn't have to pay because we bought the insurance. Otherwise, it is worth the cost.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here through out Christmas and it was more than what we expected! We arrived at night and the house was beautiful! The pictures do not do justice! The next day we could see how close we were to the water and how gorgeous it was. We have vacationed in different parts of Florida but nothing compares to AMI and this beautiful home. Thank you Rick and Lyn for being so accommodating!
