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 2010

We loved our stay here! The house is beautiful, the pool and spa perfect for both kids and adults and the beach was 5 minutes away....even while pulling the wagon with beach chairs and umbrella which was provided!! Lynn was so accommodating and easy to contact. And even though we stayed on Marco island during the labour day weekend, the beach was not crowded at all! It was the perfect family vacation and I look forward to many returns.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four and grandmother) made wonderful memories during our stay! The home is just a 2-block walk to the beach access. The kids loved having access to the screened-in pool, and the adults loved piping music out to the pool area or inside the house. The backyard is surrounded by tall shrubs, so it felt very private while we were swimming. The house has a ton of beach towels, so no need to pack them. While we couldn't get the grill to work and the television was a bit outdated, the owner was very accessible and was happy to help at any time during our stay. Her list of suggested restaurants came in handy. We even met the property manager as we were checking in, who was very nice and accommodating!

We had a great time in Marco Island in early August, which is apparently the off-season, so there was no waiting in lines for restaurants like you would normally experience at other beach places during the summer! And the weather was manageable, so we were pleasantly surprised by that, too!

This is a great vacation home and we would highly recommend it!

Second time and just keeps getting better!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay for a week in Marco Island every summer. This was our second time staying in this house. It just keeps getting better each year. The house was very clean, the pool and spa would perfect. Everything was clearly labeled. There were plenty of beach towels and bath towels. Lots of pool toys, a beach cart for the 5 minute walk to the beach. Beach chairs, beach umbrella and anchor. Even a small cooler to use. The house really is vacation ready, just needs a family and some groceries. Lynn is a great owner. Can't wait to stay again next year!

Very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property. We arrived late in the day after a full day, and our first reaction, truthfully, was "this is a modest house with a smallish pool." But as the week went along, we came to really, really like the house. The pool size was very nice for our needs, and the pool and hot tub heater worked VERY well. We had to, for instance, add a lot of water to the pool when we arrived. The pool reheated to a nice temp. very quickly. We have had other Marco pools in past years that have had very anemic heaters. Not this property.

Another nice thing about the pool/hot tub is that it is possible to be in the kitchen and monitor the (youngish) kids while they swim.

The beds are not high-end, but none of our party of 6 complained of poor sleep.

The neighbors, at least while we stayed, were VERY quiet. I actually wondered if anybody lived in neighboring houses until I saw a couple people taking out recycle, etc.

It is very close walking distance to a public beach access path by the Marriott which is very nice. (Note it is NOT close to the public beach, which has parking, and is as a result crowded) In our week at Marco, we noted that the public beach tends to be very crowded, while the beach access near the Marriott leads to a relatively uncrowded beach area.

The two (very small) things I wished were slightly better--the lighting in the living room was a bit awkward for reading in the evening. Not bad, but I like pretty bright reading light. It was ok, but not excellent. Second, I wished for a bicycle. Not even a nice one, just an old rambler I (we) could tool around the neighborhood in. We were not committed enough to rent a bike(s), but it would have been nice to have some old bike to putter about on. But we knew the house didn't come with bikes, so not a negative comment. Just a wish. :)

All in all an excellent house. This was our third year renting Marco Island homes, and this house will be at the top of our list in coming years.

Relaxing vacation in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The home had all the things we needed for our stay. The décor was recent and home was clean and ready when we got there. Lots of dishes and linens. The cart for the beach was there with lots of beach stuff. We spent a great deal of time in the pool and hot tub and really enjoyed them. The pool gets mainly morning sun which was fine for us as we are early risers and had two children under the age of two. Quick walk to the beach. We went to the farmers market on Wednesday and it was earlier in our stay. We rented a boat for a day at the marina and really enjoyed that. We were a group of 6 adults 6 and 18 month old. The owner had two pack and plays and two high chairs ready for us. She checked in with us midway through our stay. I would recommend this home to a friend or family member. We may need more space with two toddlers but this was a very relaxing vacation. We had two cars so never used the local trolley. I think a car would be a necessity for a stay.
