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!

Amazing home to stay in on vacation

  • 5 of 5

Visiting our daughter who lives in Surprise AZ from Michigan - her Daddy, sissy, and me! 20-30 minutes away from all the major cities - Phoenix, Scottsdale, Surprise and more! Home is spacious and stocked nicely with anything you might need - nothing "shabby" - all the pans, dinnerware, etc were just like you'd want in your own home. The hair dryer wasn't working - the owner sent another thru Amazon the next day!! The pool and patio area are AMAZING! spacious and great view as well! Very quiet area but can travel just a short distance for some "noise" as well - owners helpful with tips and grocery card to save you money which is near the home as well. Developing community so can only get better!! Recommend highly!!

A gem in Goodyear!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our pre-Christmas holiday! From the initial inquiry about rental, owner Lynn, was delightful to work with and very prompt and responsive. My husband and I, and one of our friends chose this home to be away from the bustle of the city, and were pleased by how accessible it was to the local parks and hiking trails. This home is on the south end of Goodyear, so be prepared to put in a little car time to get to the expressway, but there is a shopping center fairly close with a Safeway, Walgreens, and at least one bank branch, some restaurant/ fast food and health care services only minutes away.

The house was as beautiful as pictured- very clean with a fully stocked kitchen-outfitted with and array of dishes, glasses and cooking utensils perfect for entertaining your group. We took advantage of the outdoor gas grill as well as the cooking amenities in the main kitchen. No shortage of linens and towels, and was happy to have access to a full sized washer and dryer during our stay. We could not have been happier with the location, amenities and experience of this property... look no further.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house from Dec 27-Jan 2. The neighborhood was quiet, beautiful and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub. The first morning we were there we were visited by three bobcats playing in the backyard. Very entertaining. We looked for them every morning but they never came back. The home is well stocked with everything you would need. The refrigerator and the cabinets were stocked with all sorts of things. We really appreciated that things like salt, pepper, sugar and all other kinds of non-perishables were available. The price wS reasonable and the house was convenient to everything we wanted to do. We definitely would stay there again.

Private location, great patio and pool area.

  • 4 of 5

The house is located on a cul-de-sac and the backyard backs up to the hill so very private and quiet. Beautiful master bedroom with balcony. Kitchen and interior are a little outdated but everything is very functional. Love the fire pit on the back patio. This is the third time we've stayed in this house so obviously it works for us.
