About Gary Mielcarek

Picture of my daughter, Claire and wife Karen. I am retired from UPS, live in Kentucky.

Gary Mielcarek purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Gary Mielcarek chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I vacationed in Sandestin for the first time in 1995 and absolutley loved it. I stayed in a friend of mines home for several years and then decided to buy myself. I like the fact that you can do anything that you want to do without leaving the Resort. It is truely a self-contained City within the confines of Destin.

What makes this townhome unique

As you can see from the aerial photo, my home is secluded from the hub of action although I am no more than a mile from the beach or any other activities offered on the Resort. There is very little vehicle traffic since my homes location dead ends into the Bay. At night just steps away you can see one of the most beautiful sunsets out on the point and often times see groups of Dolphins making their way through waters right off of Vantage Point. There is also superb fishing right outside my back door with up to 6lb fish (bass) caught. If you really want to fish, just go out into the Bay that is only 90 yds from back door and try and land the red snappers or other big time game fish

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We went here on spring break and had a great time even though the weather was cold and rainy. We were worried that all 12 of us would be cramped in the villa but it was plenty spacious for us all. The tram to the beach and bars was fantastic. We would recommend this property to anyone!

Last Minute!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Hilton Head for 7 years with young families, but because of Hurricane Matthew we were scrambling to find a place literally last minute. Gary was more than helpful and his place couldn't have worked out better!! The three levels make it spacious enough for two families to comfortably be together for a week and the location is perfect if you are looking for a quiet relaxed time. It backs up to #8 on the Links Course and it was just great to be able to play back there with young kids after the golfers had quit coming through. We did take advantage of the provided fishing poles and caught a few in the ponds, a white trout in the bay, and even a turtle! We took the shuttle to the beach the first day, but opted to drive down to Santa Rosa beach(About 10 min) the rest of the trip because it was quite crowded for young kids. You truly wouldn't have to leave the resort though because everything you need for a great time is right there. The Baytowne Warf area was awesome and the kids really loved the massive playground. Thanks again to Gary for being so accommodating!

Overall the house is nice and the location is perfect. It is a nice place for a family.

  • 3 of 5

There were some minor issues with the house and Gary was quick to act to help remedy them. I would suggest and did suggest to Gary that a property manager that was in the area would be a benefit to the hime. We were out of gas for the grill and the sad players didn't work. These are minor thing for our family but to others they might not be and so is a property manager were to check the house after check out and prior to check in they welcomed be able to address those thing. As far as functionality and use of the house it is awesome and we had a great time and would go back!!!

Amazing time in sandestin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this unit and it could not have been more comfortable. The location is convienant to everything and the amenities are awesome. Everything you need is right there and the resort is immaculate. A shuttle will pick you up and take you straight to the white sand beach of Destin. Whether you like golf, the pool, tennis, or the beach this is the perfect location and the owner could not have been more accommodating. The screened in Lani was perfect for cooling off in the evenings and the unit was very spacious. We never felt cramped and the 4 large bedrooms gave everyone their privacy and the 3rd floor worked out perfect for the kids and gave the adults a nice break. If it happens to rain there is a huge outlet mall just a couple of miles away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. Can't wait to go back!!

Enjoyed our vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our stay we had more than enough space for our large group, and Gary was very easy to work with. I would suggest bringing extra towels that's about the only thing we needed more of. There was something to do every night at the Wharf located in the resort they had free activities for the kids and for adults looking to party the Village Door is were you need to go they had free drinks from 8:30-9:30 and no cover before a certain time. The Acme restaurant located at the Wharf is really good we ate there twice during our stay if you like oysters you have to try them chargrilled.
