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

Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, well equipped, great management and nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for 8 lifelong friends celebrating 65 years young! We were pleasantly surprised with how beautifully it was decorated and perfectly equipped! So many thoughtful touches! We even had amazing birthday cupcakes! It was so convenient to everything and we loved having the golf cart and bikes to cruise around! We also used the paddle boards and kayaks! Our stay was perfect in every way! I would not hesitate and look forward to future trips to Anna Maria and staying at

Rick and Lynn's properties! Perfect

In every way !

Couldn't have dreamed of a better home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrived at Serendipity just two days after Hurricane Hermine hit Florida and we were blown away by the effort and attention Rick and Lyn put into the home making sure it was ready for our vacation. The home has absolutely everything you could ever need. We have rented several vacation homes in the past but none were equipped like Serendipity. Two wine fridges, a Ninja blender, 3 coffee machines, paper products, laundry detergent, any baby item we would ever need and TONS of fun outdoor toys for our little guys and the grown ups.

Rick and Lyn were such terrific hosts and we hope to return in the future.

Thank you again!

Absolutely Beautiful Home, Amazing Ocean Access and Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time. The views are absolutely incredible and the home is fantastic as well. Even the rainy days could not take away the amazing feeling this home brings to you. We had a great time jet-skiing, eating sushi, swimming and sun tanning at the beach and at the pool, and taking walks on the beach to watch the sunset. It was beautiful ever where we went. It was better than we could have ever dreamed of. We would love to come back. Thank you so much Rick and Lyn for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serendipity. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. We went kayaking, paddle boarding, rode the bikes, and used the golf cart-all of which were provided for us. We also met the owners, Lyn and Rick, who are very friendly and offered up ideas on our stay. We would definitely recommend this house and our experience was very positive.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our vacation beach house. It had everything we could ever dream of and the views alone were spectacular.

It was very clean and the owner was excellent in providing great customer service and making sure that we had everything we needed.

I guess I can summarize it by the comment that my grandson made on the last day - "Do we have to leave? This has been the best vacation ever. When can we return?"

I would definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We had the BEST time at this beautiful home. The house and amenities were absolutely perfect!

Some of the highlights for us: the decor of the house was stunning, there is an ipad in the wall with sound system and speakers throughout the house, super comfortable beds with amazing pillows and linens (we slept great!), the pool area and being directly on the beach, the little fenced in backyard area was perfect for the little ones to play in the sand while we hung out. That area was great for night time too - we grilled local fresh caught fish and sat at the outdoor table with candles overlooking the gulf. It was amazing! We saw so much wildlife - dolphins, manatees, fish, crabs, and lots of cool birds! The view from all balconies are superb! Especially the 3rd floor! The pay it forward concept as others mentioned was awesome! We loved that idea! There were a lot of small items that you wouldn't expect to be at the home for your use - dish soap, laundry detergent, condiments, garbage bags, beach chairs, bikes, lots of baby items, sand toys, beach towels.

The property managers made sure we had everything we needed and the owners stopped by to introduce themselves and gave us a few tips about the area. Couldn't have asked for better hospitality.

The area was great. Good restaurants, a few little shops, beautiful beaches. There is a small grocery store a couple minutes away on golf cart and Publix is about 10-15 minutes away.

We were sad to leave, but are planning our next trip back for next year! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your incredible home!
