About Gary Mielcarek

Single nomad traveler that likes coastal areas. I am the father of 3 children one of which is in Marine flight school nearby at Pensacola Fla. I am a graduate of the University of Kentucky and retired from UPS Airlines. I also have a home in Belize on the Island of Ambergris Caye. You can find this listing on this site with the identifying property number of 865194. I presently live in Kentucky

Gary Mielcarek purchased this Townhome in 1999

Why Gary Mielcarek chose Sandestin

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

                                                                        Steele S.

                                                                        We had a group of 14 stay at this house during our break from school, and it was an absolute blast. The town home scene on a golf course wasn’t exactly what we were looking for ( so we thought ) until we arrived. The neighbors to the left rented their home out for the same week we did to some kids from Missouri that were very cool as well. Enjoyed everything about this home in SanDestin. If your looking for a spacious place with fantastic view, this is the place for you. Thanks to the owner we knew everything we needed to know about the neighborhood and the people. Couldn’t have asked for a better situation on our 6 day stay!

                                                                        Very spacious and well equipped

                                                                        Gary M.Lexington Kentucky

                                                                        Great space for multiple families

                                                                        Great space for adults and children. I enjoyed walking around the grounds in the morning. Beach was a little crowded but had a blast. The 2 king beds were missing fitted sheets but we found some to put on. Lots of activities on the grounds (watched fireworks as well as a kids movie) at the wharf. Would definitely stay again

                                                                        This place was fantastic! Everything was spacious, clean and overall an absolutely gorgeous area!

                                                                        tired home

                                                                        cindy r.

                                                                        This condo is good for groups without small children. The bedrooms are large and the baths meet the needs of large groups. The kitchen has basic needs met. Make sure you bring your own kitchen towels and storage containers. The living area is small and the furniture is old, uncomfortable and needs to be replaced. The cleaning crew is nice but the house needs a little more attention. The pool is close by and not very crowded.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        I appreciate my guests' candid response but not sure about a couple things:

                                                                        Not kid friendly. I'm not sure what that means. I have been renting my home since 2000 and have never had a review regarding this. Not sure what constitutes a home being nonfriendly to children

                                                                        Bring your own containers. Not sure what this means. Tupperware storage?

                                                                        No kitchen hand towels. I leave out ample paper towels not cloth towels. I guess the latter was preferred

                                                                        Living area is small and and furniture old and uncomfortable.

                                                                        Not sure what my guest is referencing here. I have a couch, full size chair which are 2-3 years old and 2 small chairs that swivel so you can see Tv anywhere in the room. They were reupholstered around 2 years ago. They are an "old" style of chair but I like them because they rotate for viewing. I also have 5 seat back bar stools

                                                                        Cleaning crew was nice.

                                                                        My guest normally don't meet my cleaning crew so to say they were nice but home needs a bit more attention is a little confusing

                                                                        Very nice cozy had everything you would need

                                                                        Carl R.
