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.”

A little piece of heaven! Serendipity II

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we imagined and more. This was a first of family vacations for our entire family and we had the most wonderful time and enjoyed everything the house had to offer. There were 15 of us total with kids - ages ranged from 18 months up to 70. There is everything you need right there - so convenient! The place was so nice the teenagers didn't want to leave to go to Amusement Parks, etc .... they were perfectly happy at the pool, beach and taking in the island attractions of para-sailing, fishing, ice cream shops and doughnut shops.

Gorgeous and Relaxing - Serendipity II

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you will need for a relaxing beach vacation. We had 6 adults and 2 children during our five night stay, ranging from 3 years old to 66 years old. The 6 person golf cart was a blast and made getting around the area a breeze. The pool was perfectly sized, heated, and was a huge hit with the kids. The beach access across the street made for easy sunset viewing. The beach cart and supplies provided were everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful, powder sand beach. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking in the AMI area.

Beautiful spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity 2 was the perfect house for my wedding weekend! We had 4 couples and 4 singles sleep comfortably. The heated pool was an excellent addition since I had booked the house a year prior. My bridesmaids and I got our hair and makeup done in the house, and there was still plenty of room for everyone else who was staying with us. Everyone who came over was very impressed with the house's size and beauty! Thanks again for making our wedding weekend amazing!

Also Rick called me the evening we had checked out to make sure everything was ok with our stay. That was a great personal touch you won't get with a chain hotel!

All our expectations were met! Our grandchildren loved the heated pool! Kids and grand kids felt like Grampy and Grammie threaten them like kings. We would recommend the place to anyone.

  • of 5

Beautiful. The home is fantastic! Great for a large group. We stayed as a family of 11. Something to do for everyone. Heated pool was fantastic as it was a little cool for swimming at the beach. Loved the kitchen, we were able to make 2 large meals and used the grill. Ping pong tournament continued nightly. Lots to see, do and eat on the island. We ate to our hearts content and didn't have anything we didn't enjoy. Nice to be in walking distance to many things. Well equipped home in a great beach location. Friendly people, easy to contact the manager as needed and helpful staff (maid and maintenance). We are returning home to the frozen tundra well refreshed! Thank You!!!!!!!

Perfect Vacation Every time!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity Deux is our favorite vacation spot! The house is so beautifully decorated, with plenty of room for the family to spread out! Everything that you need is included, from kitchenware to bikes and sporting goods! The new pool is a great addition, so relaxing and beautiful private setting! The beach access is across the street and what a beach! Plenty of sugar sand and sea shells to explore at this pristine beach location! Shops and restaurants are nearby, we enjoyed the Rod and Reel fish sandwiches and Ocean Star sushi restaurant. The free trolley was fun for our teens to ride around and explore. There is a Publix grocery and drug store right on the island. Boats, wave runners, and SUP rentals are also available on the island. We had so much to do right around the house, we barely left the island! So much fun, can't wait to go back!
