Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach Home Builder Testimonials


Donna Lynne has completed a number of projects for us over the years. The most recent project was a master bath renovation and a complete redesign/rebuild of our kitchen. Not only are these rooms beautiful and the fit and finish excellent but they function even better than we hoped. The process was excellently managed, the work was completed on schedule and on budget. Further, everyone who came to our home was professional and pleasant. I loved working with Donna, Heather and all their staff. They made the project enjoyable and extremely worthwhile.

We have used Donna Lynne Custom Homes twice in the past 8 years for remodel projects on the same property …. phase 1, after purchasing, and a much more in depth, phase 2, which was completed just recently. It involved all new tile flooring, significant upgrades to master and guest baths, completely new kitchen.

Collaboration process with Donna and Heather was not only productive but fun! Accomplished a lot in all our meetings; very efficient with good, creative ideas. Prep work was great… protected all fixtures and surfaces before work began. Stayed very close to projected schedule …. think we finished 2 weeks earlier. Contractors always showed up when expected. Communication was very good. Quick to answer emails, texts or phone calls. That was extremely valuable to us.

As in any renovation, we had a few surprises, but each was thoroughly addressed and the end result was perfection. I HIGHLY recommend their services and we will use them again.

My husband Randy Brintnell and I asked Donna Lynne Custom Homes, Inc to completely renovate our house. The house had good bones but needed new floors, new plumbing, new electricity, new Master suite and many other upgrades. They did a marvelous job and 4 years later we are still very happy with our home. We highly recommend Donna Lynne Custom Homes. The work was done with Robyn Branch Design and architect John Dodd. What a great team!

In 2019, Donna Lynne did a complete remodel of the interior of our home. This included removing some interior walls, rearranging some rooms, updating the entire kitchen, baths and redoing the fireplace. She also replaced most of the exterior doors, a few windows and interior doors.

All of this was done in four months while we were away. When we returned it was like a reveal on the Property Brothers. Everything was done to very high standards. We will definitely use Donna Lynne again for any additional projects and have already recommended her to friends.

As you might guess from the 5-Star rating, I cannot begin to say all the good things I liked about working with Donna and Heather. We started a tear-down project on the Plantation as strangers to each other and finished the rebuild as friends. These two women are a class act, starting with the way they treat their clients and continuing through the fair and direct way they deal with their subcontractors. If I ever get to do another project on Amelia Island, they will absolutely be my first choice to work with.

We just finished our second new home build with Donna Lynn Custom Homes. We did not consider another builder. Donna and her daughter Heather helped navigate the detailed process every step of the way. The years of experience and willingness to present options were invaluable. The home fulfilled our dreams, was finished on schedule, and we would recommend them with confidence.

I have worked with Donna Lynne for over 10 years on various projects at my home. She has outstanding subs and the work is always excellent. I am amazed that the work site is cleaned each day and all the work completed on time. Always a great experience!

Christina H. Bryan

We have owned seven different homes due to corporate moves and built or remodeled several of them. We recently worked with Donna Lynne on an extension and conversion of an outdoor Lani area into added indoor living space. Working with Donna and Heather and their crew was a wonderful experience- – the best of our experiences including all of our relocations. Their relationship with their subcontractors was excellent and supplies and construction were scheduled and completed on time. Their communication with us was always prompt and rarely did we have to check on issues more than once. We highly recommend Donna Lynne with our highest rating.

Jim and Diane O'Malley

Our daughter introduced us to Donna Lynne and we knew Immediately that we could work with her for the remodeling of our home. She was easy to talk to and she listened to all of our concerns. Our home which was built in 1978 needed a lot of work and we felt we could trust Donna Lynne to do the best job possible for us. We wanted someone local to handle the work and we were extremely satisfied with her entire crew.
If we had to start over again we would not hesitate to reach out to her.

I have had the honor and privilege of working with DonnaLynne and her staff for over 12 years. She assisted me with a complete remodel of my 1970’s home. When I was thinking of remodeling, I called about 6 builders and she was the only one that even called me back. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She is very knowledgeable with products and materials and her subcontractors are as well. She completed my remodel on time and within budget… what… that is unheard of?! Since finishing my remodel, I have continued to use her for projects here and there around my home. She is on time, dependable, fair, and works well with others. I am so pleased with my finished project and I am thankful for her and her staff that made my house a home.

Mary Hackett

We arrived on the island looking for someone to build our retirement home. Through friends we were referred to Donna Lynne Custom Homes. We had built before with mixed results, so we were a bit nervous. Our experience was totally and completely beyond our expectations. Donna and her amazing team of sub contractors delivered a high quality home at a fair price, and an enjoyable journey from start to finish. Donna helped us build a lifetime home with all that we need for the rest of our lives. This woman is really gifted and has talents across the board.

Mary Eberle

Our remodel consisted of new kitchen, bathrooms, windows, doors (both interior and exterior) and floors. The team at Donna Lynne was responsive and so easy to work with. They even discovered a leak in our neighbors unit which prevented a huge issue. I would highly recommend their services.

Doug M Roche

Donna Lynne and her staff did an excellent job remodeling our home that was damaged by a tornado. They came out did their review and gave us a quote that was adhered to. I wanted something particular done and the idea wasn’t coming across and Donna Lynne said, “No, this is what she wants and this is how you need to do it”. She and Heather listen and work with you to make your home a place you enjoy coming home to every day!!! Thank you!!!!

Lisa Weaver

Our experience with Donna Lynne Custom Homes began back in late 2016 with a remodel of an outdated faux stone fireplace facade and creating a new front entrance in a home we had just purchased. We couldn’t have been happier with the results!

Move ahead to the summer of 2019 when we went back to DLCH to do a more extensive remodel of our master bath, the addition of two dormers, a new roof and exterior paint job. As before, Donna, Heather, their crew and sub-contractors did a great job – so happy with the results!!

Should we have any further renovations, there is no question we would call on DLCH for the third time!

Donald Wilkerson
