About David Garcia

We are a family that loves God and country, the liberty and freedom found only in America, and have a deep respect and concern for our fellow man. To serve others is the secret to true success and lasting fulfillment--the driving mission behind making our dreams, 'PARADISE: 202W' available to you!

David Garcia purchased this condo in 2012

Why David Garcia chose Florida Panhandle

I wanted the best for my family and loved ones, a place of hopes and dreams, with no corners cut or expenses spared. My goal was to do everything at 202W to the best of my abilities; to be unique in outcome and different by design. I realized in order to meet my lofty aspirations I would have to build it myself, almost from scratch, so I did! The end result exceeded my greatest expectations. The outcome? 'PARADISE: 202W, Newer, Nicer, Better'! Welcome to my dream fulfilled.

What makes this condo unique

I love the beach. It calls me to its majesty, day and night. I found myself never wanting to leave, not even for a moment, or to go in for the day. This astounding second-floor unit allowed me to be 'at the beach at all times' even when in my unit. I invite you and welcome you to share the magic that is 'PARADISE: 202W'

PARADISE: A place or condition of great happiness, where everything is exactly as you would like it.

  • 5 of 5

How appropriate is this definition when you think of this gorgeous property!!! My family had the pleasure of visiting it at the end of May and beginning of June, 2016. We have stayed in several condos over the past few years, but none compare to this beautiful place. The pictures online, although wonderful, do not do this property justice. It is stunning! It is tastefully decorated and extremely clean. It is obvious the owner spent a great deal of time and money making this a renter's vacation dream home. You can always tell when an owner is actively involved in the care of the home by seeing how well it is maintained.

The times we had contact with David were pure pleasure. He is kind and thoughtful of those who rent his condo. We are grateful to say we've acquired a new friend. Thanks, David, for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Like most of you, I read all the reviews and could not believe that this place was going to be as wonderful as everyone stated. I have been going to this area for 15 years every spring. I can honestly say that this was the most relaxing, enjoyable, beautiful vacation home I have encountered. The pictures David posted are awesome however you cannot see the true beauty of this vacation home without experiencing it yourself. So spacious- and I could go on forever about the view!! Hot tub at night was perfect. David provides everything you could possibly need from coffee to beach towels. This condo has a private elevator entry. The staircase that takes you straight to the beach were extremely convenient. We did not have to go up and down elevators to have access to the beach. Ice machines, wet bar, full washer and dryer, hot tub, flat screen TV's, upgraded kitchen appliances, upgraded carpet and flooring, beautiful furniture, heated pool, a view to die for, and on top of all that David's customer service and his ability to make you feel comfortable and welcome is truly awesome and much appreciated. We already have plans to return!!

The fact that you could have chosen anywhere for your much needed time away and yet you allowed us the joy of serving your needs means so very much and is deeply appreciated. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Tina, 202W simply looks better with you guys there! Thank you again for everything. God bless you and your family, always. Your friend, David.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose the condo for our family spring break. This condo was PARADISE. We comfortable fit 9 people in the condo. David was a perfect host!

The view of the beach was breathtaking. We enjoyed the music from the Flora Bama each night on the patio.

There kitchen was fully equipped to make our Easter meal (ham and turkey)!

We would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a true 5 star vacation.

Thank you David for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

Beautiful Condo Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful beach vacation at Paradise 202w! The owner, David, was extremely accommodating and made every step of our journey easy. The condo and location by themselves are wonderful, and the building has really great amenities yet offers extreme privacy. But it was David's attention to detail that really shined. The condo is beautifully appointed and Clean- we felt at home right away. Every aspect of it was well maintained. Basic supplies, like soap, tp, facial tissue, etc, were provided, so there was no need for a run to the grocery store. We wouldn't change a thing about this condo! On a personal note, we're a bit picky about the quality of sheets, to the extent that we always bring our own sheets to a rental home (we've been burned by bad sheets twice- never again!). But the sheets at Paradise 202w were very nice and soft, and we didn't feel the need to use our own. Could have saved the space in our luggage! Truly a rare gem. We will definitely be back on our next beach trip : )

God bless and keep you all, always. David.

Perfection in Perdido

  • 5 of 5

This place is all its described as and more. When I was looking for a place to stay I chose 202w because it had everything I was looking for: lots of space, direct beach access, private hot tub and a heated pool. It didn't disappoint. We loved our stay here. The condo was luxurious and clean, had more than enough dishes and cooking supplies as well as bathroom and beach towels. It was so nice not to have to worry about doing laundry every day and running out of clean towels. One huge perk we didn't even expect is that David provided all of the things you hate to buy when staying somewhere for just a few days: laundry and dishwasher detergent, hand soap, trash bags, paper plates, coffee, creamer, sugar, salt, pepper, paper towels and I could go on. Another perk is, unlike other condos in the area we were able to walk to multiple restaurants. Not only was the food good but it was nice not to have to load kids in car seats when we wanted to go out. It's directly beside the Florabama Bar so we could sit out on the huge patio and listen to live music, but when we were ready for bed we didn't hear any of the music! The doors and windows block it out completely. David was always very quick to respond if we had any questions. I can't say enough good things about the condo and highly recommend it.

God bless you, my friend. Take care. David.

Amazing Condo and Best Owner Ever!

  • 5 of 5

When David says this condo is newer, nicer, better, rest assured he is telling the truth! The pictures are incredible, but seeing and experiencing it first hand far will far exceed your expectations! This is our second time to rent this amazing condo and we will return again and again! The condo is huge and provides plenty of room for everyone to relax without feeling you are on top of each other. All the bedrooms are spacious and the furniture is all top of the line. The kitchen is a cook's dream and the stocked supply closet saved us a ton of money at the grocery! Everything from paper products, laundry detergent, soap, trash bags, coffee/filters, you name it and it is provided! David is absolutely the best owner to work with...he goes out of his way to provide for your every need and is available at all times to help with any issue that may arise during your stay! The views are incredible and being next to the Florabama is pure entertainment! Simply put, it is an awesome place to experience!

Please give my warmest to everyone, and tell them "David says HEY, hurry back!" May God keep you all, always. David.
