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 2013

Why Rick or Lyn Puskas chose 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.

What makes this house unique

Decorated and designed to make you feel comfortably home while enjoying the beautiful sand beach and spectacular sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Leaving tomorrow.. Best vacation ever! Storm coming in now but still the most beautiful sight! We can't wait to come back again.

Again our thanks everything is perfect.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5
We originally visited Anna Maria Island because one can easily find a house on beachfront property -- unlike 30A, where many of our friends vacation. With 4 enthusiastic early morning sand-diggers (our kids were 9, 7, 5, 3.5, and 4 months at the time of our stay), Serendipity I was the perfect choice for us -- adults and baby rubbing sleep from our eyes while watching the others from the balcony!

The house is amazing -- wood floors, white slip covered furniture, peaceful artwork, and our favorite feature: the garage. Not your ordinary home for tools, the garage is air conditioned and equipped with foosball table and every tool needed for a successful day at the beach. And don't forget the golf cart! Trips to "Two Scoops" ice cream shop were a daily occurrence. We had so much fun and the bond between our children strengthened as they found live starfish, sand dollars, and other sea creatures and shared squeals of joy.

Don't pass up the opportunity to stay at either of their properties -- we stayed at both Serendipity I and II. The owners are helpful, available, and accommodating. We look forward to a return visit in the future!

Our stay at Serendipity far exceeded our expectations. The home was breathtakingly beautiful, perfectly decorated, and the views from all the balconies mesmerizing. The owners were accommodating and have thought of all the details. Our family includes three very young children--this means that vacations aren't usually vacations, but getaways. Our time at Serendipidy was indeed a vacation!

Vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5
Anna Maria Island is truly a little piece of paradise! The home was lovely and the views were spectacular. All of the amenities were in place. We rode bicycles, kayaked, and drove the golf cart to the rod and reel pier for breakfast. The home owners were available and attentive. My adolescent son said the only thing missing was a swimming pool, but he had a fabulous time as well. We saw dolphins, a manatee, and a sea turtle. Perfect family vacation.

Beautiful beaches

  • 5 of 5
Great location on the beach; wonderful sunsets. The island is very quaint and laid back. The home is very nice and comfortable. We were able to walk, bike or take the golf cart around the island. Some of our favorite things were The Donut Shop, renting paddle boards from Beach Bums, kayak tour from Happy Paddler, dinners at The Sandbar, Beachhouse and The Waterfront Restaurant. We cooked fresh fish from the Starfish market, delicious! A wonderful family vacation!!

Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our 3 year old daughter to Serendipity for a little R&R. The home is beautiful and bright with lovely furnishings and windows everywhere. The views are just what sore Midwest eyes needed after the harsh winter! Beds were super comfy with soft bedding. Our daughter loved the kids twin room and insisted on staying in there rather than the queen room with the view. Beach supplies were all ready and waiting for use in the garage. Hanging out on the balconies was a highlight of each morning/evening. Rick and Lyn have thought of everything with this house. The beach was clean and uncrowded yet some little one's for our daughter to play with. We would recommend Serendipity to anyone and look forward to visiting again.
