About Erich Midlik

I am originally from Buffalo, NY and have lived in Chicago, IL for many years among other places both in the US and abroad. I have never heard of this area of Florida, but just after one visit to my friends home here in Miramar Beach, I knew I was in love with this fun, relaxing beach town. I purchased this home to live in during those cold wintery months of Chicago but now I find my business abroad increasing, hence this short term rental program. I simply hope that this home can bring other families and friends lots of joy during their visit to gorgeous Destin.

Erich Midlik purchased this house in 2015

Why Erich Midlik chose Miramar Beach

Minutes to the Gulf/Beach,

Gated Community,

South & North Vehicle access,

Staggered Lot, secluded backyard, no abutting rear property,

Pool & patio deck and landscape,

Renovated for open floor plan,

Largest floor plan Master bedroom,

New furniture, appliances, fixtures throughout.

What makes this house unique

Paradise Retreat is an HOA managed community with well maintained properties tucked away in a quiet setting very close (walking distance 5 to 7 mins., 400 yards) to the Gulf & beaches. This is a gated community and one of the few that has vehicle access from both the South (Gulf side) and North (Hwy 98). My property is located just off (the second property) Paradise Retreat's north entrance landscaped monument. There are large trees behind my property adjacent to an open grass area with no properties immediately abutting behind it. Unlike most of the properties this lot is staggered affording a larger deeper back yard space, a secluded relaxed feeling. To summarize, my property has a large master bedroom, newly renovated open floor plan, large back yard with pool and a short distance to the Gulf/Beach. Simply put, this property is a win, win, win for all. I am sure you will love this property as much as I do. I look forward to sharing my Gulf retreat with you.

Snowbirds treated like neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We need to get away from the Wisconsin winters so we chose Captain Greens to be our winter place. We made a great decision. The neighborhood treated us like neighbors and friends. Everyone we met remembered our names to include our Wilbur. Walking him daily was a treat as we met the neighbors. Tom and Joe became our friends. As for the house, it is finely decorated by Pam and yet comfortable providing everything we need. Joe even put in a high boy toilet for our old knees. Sitting in the sun was a pleasure in this backyard. And the hall table that Joe made and Pam painted is a charm. We pray to return for many winters to come.

You won't regret renting this house!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and very clean. It's a couple minute walk to the beach. In my opinion it's faster to walk than to drive to the public beach parking and walk down to the private beach access. Or you can ride the bikes provided at the house down there as well. Joe is great! He was readily available any time we had a question. The next time we visit Florida, this home will be the first place I try to book. You will not regret staying there!!

Excellent location for beach vacations

  • 5 of 5

We had wondeful 2 weeks time @ Captain's retreat : house is very confortable with all you need to feel good. Few minutes walk to the beach is more than appreciated as parking is very limited . Thanks to Joe for his kindness and taking time to drive us around the area to locate restaurants, stores and so on ...

Definitively a place to go .

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 3 year-olds who stayed a week at this beach house. It was very convenient to shopping and restaurants, and having the private pool was amazing. The house had just about everything you could need to cook and eat there - cost effective and easier with picky little ones. Families with littles should know that it's probably a 10-15 minute walk to the beach with the little guys when they're walking along with you. The provided beach wagon makes this faster, if it's not already filled with a cooler and toys. The property manager, Joe, was responsive and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again!

Owner's Response: Jackie thanks for your great review it was great having all of you and hearing about the enjoyable vacation you had staying at "The Captain's". Hope to have you back again with the little ones. The provide mid-size cooler on wheels should have alleviated a cooler in the wagon and the 6 provided bike shorten the beach walk to under 3 mins. to our Paradise Retreat community private beach. Thank you for allowing "The Captain" to earn your business. Joe Property Mgr.
