About Rick or Lyn Puskas

After enjoying the rental of Serendipity I, Rick and I fell in love with Serendipity II which is larger and on a corner lot. We enjoy the easy beach access across the street and relaxing back at our home with a beautiful view of the Gulf. We are opening our home to rent so you can enjoy it as well.

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.

Elevator access to all floors, open decks and a large home for families to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Anna Maria, Florida



Just south of Tampa, Anna Maria is a Gulf Coast beach town that has managed to avoid the sort of overdevelopment that plagues similar areas nearby – so it retains a certain small-town coastal Florida charm. With a high proportion of residences being second homes or vacation homes, Anna Maria tends to be much quieter as well. The entire city is a protected bird sanctuary, and don’t be surprised if you happen to meet a manatee during your morning swim. “It's an important sea turtle hatching ground, and for much of the year, there just aren't that many people on it,” says Cochran. “What's funny is that even though it's at the bottom lip of Tampa Bay, nine people out of ten in Florida don't even know where it is. European tourists have discovered it, but it seems like Floridians have been the last to find out.”

Loved, loved, loved Serendipity Deux! Watching shooting stars from the outdoor porches was an amazing experience. Loved the two nearby paths to the beach. We especially enjoyed that the home had bicycles; we used them every single day. We also enjoyed the large golf cart for family outings to restaurants and not-so-close beaches. The home is beautifully decorated and squeaky clean. The private pool and lush palms surrounding it made it the perfect paradise. Can't wait to go back!

We Found Paradise at Serendipity Deux ❤️

  • 5 of 5
Let me start my review with Lyn and Rick. They are the most caring, and attentive home owners who clearly take a lot of pride in their properties, and care for the families who rent from them. We felt "welcomed" from the moment we booked our 10 day stay until we got home, when they even welcomed us back for next summer!
The pictures can not even begin to do the home justice. Every little detail has been thought out to perfection. The home has a very warm, bright and elegant, ~yet not pretentious feel to it. There is an eclectic mix of refinished antique furniture with art from all over the world, to handmade seashell art by family members, to a downright, gorgeous seashell chandelier at the kitchen table! The dimmers on the lights were wonderful at night, along with the gas fireplace for ambiance after a long sandy, sunny day at the beach. (That was if we even spent time indoors) watching shooting stars from decks each night while listening to music became one of our favorite things to do after the sun went down! The nod to Victorian elegance on the porches made us feel like we had stepped back into a more quiet, quaint time.
The house is immaculately clean. (And we are a bit particular when it comes to this...) I used the tub the first night we got in, and this was the first time I didn't feel like I needed to clean it before using. Sylvia takes pride in her cleaning work for the Puskas, and I want to say it didn't go unnoticed.
The beds are first rate! I had the master, and to my happy surprise, it was a King sized Sleep Number bed, and I could not have slept better!! The other beds are top quality too! There is nothing worse than going away and not having a comfy bed. The bed linens were perfection as well, all cotton and very rich without making you sweat.
The house was fully loaded with everything you needed in the kitchen and bathrooms. Unlike other rentals, Rick and Lyn provide their guests with top quality kitchen utensils, linens, and towels, and high end appliances throughout.(We loved the Fiestaware, and flower plates)~We went out to dinner twice the whole time, because we enjoyed the home too much!
Every day we pretty much forwent our rental cars, instead having a blast going everywhere on the 6 person golf cart.
Oh, and Beach chairs, tents, bikes, towels, umbrella...you name it, they Have it!!!
~Truly, Serendipity Deux IS Paradise Found!
Thank you Rick & Lyn, ~Laurie, Marion, Sandy and Melissa

What a dream--your home is beautiful! We could not have been more happy to stay and we thank you for sharing this slice of heaven with us. We had 2 families-5 kids all together. Everyone had plenty of room to spread out and it was comfortable for us all. The kitchen-ooh my this kitchen! Its fully stocked with everything we needed-so thankful for the crockpot! (Used it twice!) The pool was perfect for night swimming-the kids LOVED the changing colored lights. The beach, right across the street, was quiet and family friendly. White sands and crystal clear ocean. Some days we had waves and others we had a calm sea with a huge sand bar-we could walk out so far! Saw dolphins, manatees, manta ray, and sting ray! No jelly fish thank goodness! Anna Maria Island is just perfect. LOTs of happy memories made. Thanks again!!

Loved Serendipity!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in Serendipity II. The home was beautiful and very clean ( and I am quite picky about this). For the first time ever, I didn't feel the need to wash the bath mats before using them. Having the elevator available was excellent in unloading and reloading the luggage, etc. We utilized the bikes and the golf cart for touring around the island. The new swimming pool was wonderful. We definitely enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return soon. The Pulaskis we're amazing to work with. HIGHLY recommend!
