About Lynn

We purchased our first home on Flamingo Circle in 2004 for vacation and rental purposes. The area near the beach is very popular with families. We feel very fortunate to have been able to add four more homes on Flamingo to our list of offerings. If you prefer a waterfront property, ask about our nicely renovated condo and spacious waterfront homes.

Lynn purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Lynn,

Thank you! What a wonderful place. We started every morning with a walk on the beach. Then spent the afternoon in the pool. On our last night we ate at Guy Harvey's. Fantastic food and view.

Couldn't have asked for more!

Acceptable but not Special

Verified Stay

The property was clean and the kitchen was reasonably stocked with dishes and cooking tools, pot, and pans,etc. The location was perfect for easy access to the beach with a short walk. The owner also provides several beach chairs, towels and cooler that is easily taken to the beach in a nice beach wagon that is super easy to pull along. The decorating is modest beach, and doesn't shout luxury but is comfortable. Our only complaint is that we were without telephone, television and internet for 3 of the 10 days. The owner responded promptly to help, but given the network company schedule, it took several days to get it fixed, and we needed to be around to let them in. No accommodation in price was offered for our inconvenience.

Owner's Response: I'm pleased to know our guests found the home to be clean and comfortable and fully equipped for trips to the nearby beach. This group arrived on a Monday evening after a severe Sunday windstorm. They contacted me to say the internet and TV were not working. I immediately called Comcast to assess whether the problem was affecting the whole neighborhood or just our place. The rep determined the outage was specific to our house and scheduled a service call for Wednesday morning between 8-12. I asked the guests if they would be around or if I should have someone meet the Comcast tech at the house. It was agreed that my cleaning lady would be there at 10am if Comcast did not arrive sooner. They contacted me at 8:45 to say the Comcast guy worked on the outside connection and all services were now operational. On Thursday morning, the guests informed me the TV and internet had stopped working Wednesday night. An appointment was scheduled for Friday morning. Again, my cleaning lady was on call to take over when they were ready to leave the house. In addition, I provided access to one of my other Flamingo homes in case the guests wanted to watch TV or use the internet service. Comcast arrived at 8:30am on Friday and ran a new cable from the pole to the house. The service was restored and we have had no further problems.

Doesnt feel like Florida, very nice and quiet island! My family and I (6 adults &1 toddler) spent 8 days here at the Flamingo address and found it very accommodating and comfortable (felt like home away from home). The house was clean and nicely updated and the pool was warm and relaxing.The physical location of the property was heavenly, I mean when Lynn said it was a 5 min walk it really was and the walk alone was relaxing. House is well kept they had lawn service there when we were there and that shows the property is well cared for. Owners provided beachwear which made it easier for us like the 2 wagons helped us transport the beachwear. Home had plenty of towels inc beach towels and a laundry room in house.

We went there for my 40th birthday with wife and inlaws and they enjoyed it just as much. We are not picky people we went there for the weather and beach, not to stay indoors but it happened to be a cold front for the first 2 days so we were indoors most of the day and it was nice and comfy. I highly recommend a family vaca here! Also I'd like to add that we never needed to contact owners or property managers during our stay for anything.

~Hope you will enjoy as we did!

Truly turn-key rental = walk-in and relax

  • 5 of 5

Owner provides helpful service before and during our 2nd stay at one of their properties in town. House provides all we need and more! Comfortable bedrooms, private pool and lanai are screened for bug-free dining and relaxing, fairly well stocked kitchen, laundry and beach towels, cart, chairs, and mini-cooler all ready for your quick walk to the beach. Truly turn-key property - bring your suit, shorts, and a good book and enjoy yourselves in a quiet, private residence where you can cook your own food or go out and save a bundle from a resort property.

Express mode on d/w is quick, thorough and quiet. Laundry available so no need to bring much. Enjoyed a Shurr Adventure in Everglades City, Lee Be Fish and Doreen's in town, and walked every day to sit on the beach near the Marriott's resort. Walked parts of the 4 mile long white powder beach every day and enjoyed looking at shells, watching the birds, building in the sand and throughly relaxing. We did decide to travel in Nov vs. Dec this year to make sure it was warm enough for sun and surf.

Great Property in a beautiful location and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The property was very well maintained and manicured, the pool was awesome and the interior of the home was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. To be honest, this was our first experience with Home Away and we were nervous. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found the property to be such a wonderful place. Lynn was great to work with from scheduling all the way through our stay and provided great customer service all the way around. If we had the opportunity we would head back tomorrow!! We did find the walk to the beach to be more like 10 -12 minutes but the owner had everything we needed (wagons, chairs, boogie boards, etc.) to minimize the inconvenience of the walk and enjoy the beach. I have already recommended Marco Island and this property to several of my friends and family members.

Beautiful Beach, Great Location, Comfy house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed this house over the summer vacation of 2016. This a good property. Favorites: Pool, clean rooms, and comfy beds. This house is just a 5 min walk to the beach, the location is very convenient. The beach is warm and inviting, however the sand is not soft due to the shells. This was a wonderful vacation- we will go back. Drawback: drinks and food at the restaurants were very expensive.

House needs some attention.

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

I must admit I am a little surprised by the positive reviews. Maybe I am just more particular than some.

The positives. The house is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach by The Marriott. The beach was beautiful. The pool area was nice (although the furniture is old and cheap plastic) and the pool was clean and warm. We spent most of our time by the pool. The master bath has a new beautiful shower.

The rest of the house needs some maintenance. The whole house needs painting. The sliding doors are old and the master is difficult to open. The house was fairly clean when we arrived but not spotless. The floors were a little dirty. There were only three beach towels. Most of the towels looked like ones I have in my garage for rags. I changed a pillowcase and the pillow looked like it had dried blood on it. Most of the dishes are old, stained, cracked. There weren't any pool floats or toys. I bought three "noodles" and left them there when we left.

We paid almost $3000 for a week. When I saw the 4 bedroom house my friend rented for a little less I almost cried. There are much nicer houses available.

This was our first trip to Marco Island but it won't be our last. We loved the beaches, the restaurants and the friendly people.

Owner's Response: I was surprised to read this review particularly because the prior week's guests raved about the accommodations and posted a favorable review. My cleaning crew normally receives compliments on the level of cleanliness, though it appears they missed some areas in this case. I wish the guests had contacted me so I could have addressed their concerns right away. The patio dining set is powder coated aluminum and the sun loungers are similar to those at the Marriott. Stackable adirondack chairs provide extra seating. We are continually updating our Flamingo homes. As the reviewer mentioned, the master bath was recently expanded and updated. A new roof, fresh exterior paint, variable speed pool pump, and new A/C system are a few other recent improvements. There are newer, fancier, "drive to the beach" properties, but most vacationers prefer the casual atmosphere and close proximity to the beach of our Flamingo homes. I think you will, too!
