Meet The Team


George A. Jacynycz


George founded Prista Vacation Rentals in 2009 after privately representing his family’s Myrtle Beach vacation home. After sharing his family’s vacation home with friends and guests alike, he realized that others enjoyed vacationing privately – an experience unavailable from a traditional hotel. Other owners agreed, and 20 owners later (and counting) he is committed to providing guests with the same one-of-a-kind private stay experience. George, an Ohio native, golfer, and beachgoer began traveling to Myrtle Beach in 2006 after a family friend invited him and his friends to stay at their oceanfront vacation home at the Margate Tower in Kingston Plantation. About one year later, he and his family purchased their first vacation rental at the Island Vista Resort later named Getsy’s Getaway. Located in South Carolina, George works closely with Prista property owners to ensure that every rental provides guests and exceptional vacation rental experience.


Kaan Gencer

Marketing and Sales

Kaan joined the Prista team while it was still at its infancy in 2011. An entrepreneur at heart, he recognized George’s unique vision for a private vacation experience in Myrtle Beach and jumped at the opportunity to join forces and together create a special, private experience for guests. Kaan and his family have owned time shares in the Myrtle Beach area for many years, and it is his love of the beach and the unique experience that private vacationing provides guests that drives him to connect Prista with guests looking for more than just a typical hotel experience in Myrtle Beach. Kaan has dual Masters degrees in Business and Marketing and is currently hopping back and forth between his home state of Ohio and his favorite vacation spot on the East coast in Myrtle Beach.


Tina Wolfe


Tina recently joined our team full-time, as a Reservationist/Marketing Associate. She was originally introduced to George back in 2011 while booking her first “Prista” stay at The Margate which elevated her Myrtle Beach vacation experience to a whole new level! She shared with George how she enjoyed reviewing vacation rentals online and was quite impressed with the portfolio of upscale properties that Prista managed. Of course, George asked her to keep in touch and she did! Since 2016 she has been working part-time 'behind the scenes' with Prista and is very excited for this new opportunity. Originally coming from the guest side of things, she looks forward to creating a stress-free vacation experience for you! As a lifelong resident of Ohio, she’s very passionate about Cleveland sports and enjoys time spent with family and friends. She’s enjoyed many vacations in Myrtle Beach over the years and looks forward to spending a lot more time at the beach for years to come.
