About Lynn Donovan

Hello, my name is Lynn. I am the former owner of a very successful Commercial Real Estate Company in New Jersey which I recently sold. I have over 25 years of Commercial Real Estate experience and over 200 million dollars in personal sales. My expertise was in listing, contract negotiations, marketing and property development. I was all about business, however, I wanted to do something more creative and fun.

Back in 1998 while traveling from Kauai I had a conversation with a woman who was in the high end home vacation rental business. She had homes all over the world and this intrigued me. I started to research information and bought my first property in Goodyear, Az., Estrella Mountain Ranch; it is a custom home with a pool and spa with great views and privacy! I went on and purchased Poipu Villa Vista in Kauai, Hawaii with ocean, golf course, mountain and crater views and an international vacation home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with a rooftop deck and views of the entire city. Our latest purchase was in Lake Como, New Jersey it is a seaside community just a half block from the lake and eight blocks from the ocean.

Owning vacation properties gives me a chance to be creative in renovating and decorating these custom homes to correspond with thier locations. Our goal is to have the stay for our guests become a special and unique experience and create memories for them that they will cherish forever. We live in a stressful world and each property has a calming effect that our guests love. They let us know we have achieved this by thier comments!

Lynn Donovan purchased this house in 1999

Why Lynn Donovan chose Goodyear

Estrella Mountain Ranch is a very unique community located in a gorgeous setting in the Estrella Mountains with two lakes, golf course, star gazing monument and much more. The house is custom and in a very private setting. You are surrounded by desert scenery including saguro cactus and moutains and lake views. Yet the house is near downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sedona and even just a 2.5 hour drive to Sedona and Palm Springs!

What makes this house unique

The sunsets and views from our home are AMAZING! The evening star gazing is incredible! Our guests enjoy a large covered patio that backs up to the pool and spa with seamless indoor outdoor activity. You may see a bobcat, quail, a cottontail and other desert wildlife. Our spa and pool are surrounded by estrella mountain reserve for ultimate privacy! PLease don't be fooled by so called vacation homes that are tract homes with no privacy or views at all!

Staying in Good Year Az.

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Az. many times and have always rented a home for a week. I was not disappointed in this home. Pictures are accurate. Privacy beyond expectations. Good bedding. everything you want to have in your stay I would recommended this home to others. The only draw back, is that good restaurants and shopping are miles away. I knew this going in, so it did not matter to me. Thumbs up. Easy to deal with owner.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my two teenage sons in mid February during a week of fabulous weather. We loved this home and it was ideal for our needs. The house is very well maintained and has everything you could imagine for your stay (i.e. capuccino maker, great bbq, more than ample dishes, wine glasses etc, etc,) Beds were very comfortable in nice large bedrooms with balcony for a great morning coffee setting. Plenty of room to roam in the house and the spacious backyard setting up to the pool and hot tub with a terrific view of the mountains right behind. You really feel like you are on vacation here and it is a wonderfully private setting (we didn't even see or hear a neighbour until the day we left). The house was impeccably clean and everything worked without a hitch. Internet and cable service was excellent (except NBC didn't show Canada-USA Olympic hockey games on their regular channel - aarrgh!). It is clear the owner has put a lot of effort into creating a comfortable experience and the house is very well accentuated making it feel very homey.
The Safeway is very close with all you need, with some good restaurants a short drive away (we are big PF Chang's fans) and a top notch golf course (Golf Estrella) with reasonbale prices just around the corner from the house.
We would highly recommend Lynn's Estrella home for any type of group really as it very versatile and so roomy. We plan to come back next time we vacation in Phoenix!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your sons enjoyed Estrella Mountain Escape vacation home. We have put a lot of thought into the detail finishes and what our guests would like during their vacation. Sorry about the Canadian Olympic hockey....who would have known!

Every year we choose a new location for our winter family re-union. We have rented homes before and were disappointed but this home was absolutely everything Lynn said it would be. If you are looking for a Arizona get-away.....Rent this home. We were 6 adults and found this home, the scenery and seclusion perfect for us senior citizens. Beds and mattresses were very comfortable as opposed to some we have rented. 3 full baths made it especially nice as well as all the kitchen amenities. Before we left we vowed that this would be a home we definitely will rent again!

Estrella Mountain Home review

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing home! You are definitely on vacation when booking it. The owner has made it a slice of heaven. The home was very clean with everything included you would ever think of needing. The home and grounds were very well maintained, the pool and hot tub were just the right touch for the warm Arizona days. We did feel we were pampered! Would highly recommend it and hope to come back.

Our holiday at Estrella Escape was the most wonderful 3 weeks!! What a delightful location with extraordinary views!! Every room has a lovely panoramic vista of the valley or mountains! The sunrises & sunsets are nothing short of magnificent. The home is equipped with every amenity you need or want. We absolutely adored the furnishings - the house is elegant but yet very comfortable. The pool & spa were most enjoyed by our 17 year old niece who was with us on holiday. My husband & I really enjoyed the spacious lanai. The nearby lakes & gym & walking trails are close by and very convenient. We have stayed in many rentals the last 30 years & this is one of our most favorites. The peace and quiet nourishes your spirit & does the soul much good. Last but not at all least ~. Lynn is a wonderful owner that checked to ensure our contentment with the house. She made the rental process very simple and it did not go unnoticed. Our deposit was promptly returned as promised!! We look forward to returning for yet another Estrella Escape!!!

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful. well furnished, and cared for home for the month of March and loved every moment! We had the most ideal weather conditions so we could enjoy the pool, spa, nearby lakes/walking paths/park/tennis courts/ etc every day. My stepfather especially enjoyed being able to catch and release fish...one of his favorite activities and not expected in Arizona! The home was spacious and the kitchen well appointed. The peninsula was our favorite gathering place and we loved the dining room for our nightly card games. Having the third full bath was a real asset for 6 adults. We loved the lanai where we used the grill and ate often. Perhaps the only thing I would change at this home is the furniture on the lanai...it's just not comfortable for any length of time.The bedrooms had comfortable beds and plenty of closet space. My personal favorite was the queen bedroom which shared a balcony with the master suite. The covered balcony was quiet, had great views and was the perfect get away for morning coffee, sunrises, and stars at night. My mom used it daily for sewing and reading. The master was perfect for my mom and stepdad who are in their 80's and usually get up during the night. The master allowed them to do that safely and quietly. The pool and spa were used by all everyday...and the spa by some at night when the stars were spectacular. We enjoyed using the fireplace a couple of cool nights. Being able to open all the windows was wonderful and brought us the fresh air we hadn't experienced in months! We went to baseball games, the botanical gardens, Heard Museum, Phoneix museum of art, 2 art shows which were great, the Star Tower, shopping malls, and many road trips to see the area(you definitely need a car here). We all hiked the mountain behind our house. Having the Safeway so close was wonderful and we voted it best grocery store in the area. We ate at restaurants but really enjoyed the peace and quiet on the bug-less lanai, the views of the mountains, and warmth of the Arizona sun....things we don't have in Illinois. For us this home had everything we wanted and more. It was the most relaxing, rejuvenating vacation I have ever had. We will definitely try to find another time to return. Thanks for sharing your special Estrella Mountain Escape with us, Lynn.
Oh, after reading other reviews, I should add that we received immediate replies from Lynn to questions we had and our security deposit return was timely.
