HISTORIC HOME: Welcome to Captain Kenny's House! Our family built this home in 1925 in Boynton Beach, FL and now it has been in the family for 5 generations! As the owner of this home and great-great granddaughter of the original owner/builder, I am excited to make it available to guests and share the history of our family for the very first time!

OUR HISTORY: Kenneth Lyman, was the grandson of Morris Benson (M.B.) and Mary Lyman, credited with the founding of the town of Lantana, FL in 1921 and who built their historic home in 1889 in that town which is recognized as the 2nd oldest. M.B. Lyman's home is now the site of the popular Old Key Lime House, a water-front restaurant, known for it's award winning key lime pie and largest tiki bar in south Florida!

Captain Kenny was the owner of Lyman's Sports Fishing Docks located at the current site of the Boynton Beach Marina and a recreation charter fishing boat captain. He took out private clients on his boat the "Lucky Penny" named after his wife of 63 years, Penny Lyman and introduced them to the wonderful world of sports fishing. A self-proclaimed "cowboy of the seas", Captain Kenny dazzled his clients with his skill and tenacity as a captain and sports fisherman. Lyman's Fishing Docks became a popular tourist destination in the 1950's, hosting dozens of fishing competitions, beauty queen contests and local fish fries which raised money for local charitable causes.

THE HOME: Captain Kenny's House was built in 1925 by his other set of grandparents, Frank and Alice Austin, and was completely renovated in 2007. It is centrally located in downtown Boynton Beach and a 5 minute walk to local, casual and upscale restaurants, community parks, the Schoolhouse Children's Museum, City Hall's NEW outdoor amphitheater, public library, Boynton Harbor marina, diving, jet-skiing, sports fishing, parasailing and MORE and exactly 1 mile to the beach with sidewalks the whole way! The town of Boynton Beach hosts a number of festivals, parades and events and the location of this home puts guests at the epicenter of all the fun and festivities! It is also the ideal home base for day trips to Fort Lauderdale, Miami and the Florida Keys.

When you stay at the historic Captain Kenny's House, you will experience a home that is deeply rooted in history, but also equipped with all the desired amenities of a short-term vacation rental: large private fenced yard with hardscape patio courtyard, gas grill, SCUBA rinsing station, shed with beach gear, oversized driveway for car and boat parking, oversized dining table, high-speed internet, wi-fi, keyless entry, full size washer/dryer, high-chair and travel crib, books, toys and board-games, ALL linens included, fully-stocked kitchen with spice cabinet, coffee/espresso station and 2 smart TVs.

As a big homeschool family, we have outfitted our home to accommodate the needs of families similar to ours too! We are also a musical family so this home has a full-size weighted keyboard and guitar available for guest use. Please be careful with each and ENJOY!

*NO PETS Allowed. Also, please note that the fireplace is not functioning and is not to be used.

We invite you to visit our family's home and learn more about Captain Kenny and the sports fishing industry for which Boynton Beach is so well-known!
