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 their 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! Just added a new outdoor gas firepit for those cooler evenings!

Wonderful secluded home in the desert

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in this wonderful spacious home. It's location ensures privacy and an opportunity to enjoy the desert atmosphere, sunsets and sunrises. The home is well appointed, the kitchen had everything we needed. The expansive covered patio with fans, comfortable furniture, large BBQ, fire-pit was used and enjoyed day and night. Although the pool is not heated, it was very comfortable when the temperature hit 90. We played a lot of golf so appreciated how close the home was to Estrella Golf Club. The owner Lynn was very responsive to questions and needs. We would love to come back to this property that feels like a resort.

Absolutely breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I along with my sister & brother-in-law just returned from a 2 week stay. The house is impressive sitting on a hill as you drive up! The back patio/pool area & the balcony were our favorite parts! The views off the balcony & out the massive master suite windows were breathtaking! (During the day & especially at night!). We really enjoyed meals on the patio & playing cards! We got some use out of the pool even tho it wasn't heated. It was a perfect location as it was private but not too far from Goodyear Ballpark or the Lakes where we took our morning walks! The house was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable! We have stayed at several other houses in the area but can't imagine a better view than what this house has to offer!

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find places that offer this kind of private but open setting, yet are still close enough to walk to the local park for some pickle ball, tennis, or basketball fun, or to just enjoy a walk around the lakes. Updated appliances, but still the charm of the 90's era construction style (tile counters, & hearth, large uneven floor tile, sunken dining, and living rooms etc.). We enjoyed our comfortable month long stay very much as did the guests we had for two of those weeks. We used some of our time there finding a place to purchase near by, so while we most likely won't be staying at Lynn's home again, we wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others looking for a unique, comfortable, quiet place to stay .

Owner's Response: I thank these wonderful guests. for such a great review! I have upgraded the appliances and fixtures and try to keep the house very modern but have intentionally preserved the 90s vintage Southwest charm. When people come to visit they feel like they're in the the southwest AND not somewhere in Tuscany! The home has very modern and I am constantly updating the technology.
