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!

Spring Escape

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Estrella Mountain retreat. Quiet setting yet close enough to Goodyear Ballpark (6 miles). Grocery store less than 1 mile away. Great walking trails just steps away and excellent Golf Course around the corner. I would definitely stay here again.

Holiday Get Away Plus

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to spend the Christmas Holiday where it would be quiet and peaceful we got both here at Estrella Mtn. home. We had a great time and although it was a little chilly in December we did get to enjoy the pool and spa. We also enjoyed using the outdoor kitchen barbecuing as we don't get to do that in Kansas. We were only a few miles from Buckeye Az. where we also spent some time for the possibility of a job transfer. We really liked it in Goodyear and would like to visit again soon. Lynn made it an easy process and we had no problems at all. Thank you for a great experience!

Owner's Response: So happy our guests from Kansas enjoyed their time at Estrella Escape vacation and the home lived up to it's name! Estrella Escape! We are so glad when our guests comment on the privacy and peace that they enjoy at the house. Please be sure to return!

Our Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a romantic getaway for our 31st anniversary and we found it here. The Estrella House was everything as described and more. The neighborhood was quiet, peaceful, and private.

The house is well appointed and roomy. The pool, although unheated, was perfect and refreshing in the mid-80’s temperature in late October! We spent the last night at our oasis in the spa star gazing and spotted a few shooting stars as well.

We were a bit concerned about the distance from Phoenix (about 40 minutes) but we found enough great local places to eat no farther than N. Litchfield Road. The beauty of the rugged reserve from the backyard, the privacy and the quiet trumps the proximity to Phoenix anytime. We had a great time and can’t wait to book again soon!

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!

House was "Excellent Plus"

  • 5 of 5

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!
