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'

Is this place and this guy for real???

  • 5 of 5

That is what my husband and I wondered when we first stumbled upon the VRBO 202W Mediterranean site. We had never rented directly from an owner before; and after reading David's description and the posted reviews, we thought it seemed almost too good to be true. Boy, were we wrong!

I could tell I was dealing with a one-of-a-kind, special person the moment I first spoke with David on the phone. Each conversation or email thereafter furthered that impression; and now that we have actually spent the week in David's Paradise with my husband's siblings and their spouses (eight of us), I can 100% confirm that both David and the paradise he has created are most certainly real and are as close to perfect as you can get!

I can't say it any better than the other reviews have already stated. Read them and BELIEVE them! It's ALL true! Some reviews even mention perks that David leaves out of his description, as there are just too many to list--items such as bottles of liquid hand soap in each bathroom, glycerin body soap, and the little white noise boxes in each bedroom, which all of us were sure contributed to the best sleep ever, along with the wonderful mattresses and sheets. The overstocked supply closet was a huge bonus and time-saver, so that we did not have to make extra trips to the store for basic necessities that are sure to run out with eight people using them.

And to think that I had been concerned about eight of us being cooped up together in one place for a week! Between the 3700 sq. ft. of the unit itself and the extra 1400 sq. ft. of balcony space with a multitude of sitting and lounging areas, there were times when it was actually hard to find people! I definitely felt like I had "my space," even though I wasn't lucky enough to "draw" the master bedroom "prize," for which we added a premium when we divided up the cost. (We also added a slight premium to the other king bedroom.)

I have rented MANY condos over the years in Perdido Key and elsewhere, all claiming to be "luxury," and some of them actually were. But not one comes even close to 202 W! Every detail in David's description is true and THEN SOME! It is a joy to stay in a home that is obviously so loved by its owner— an owner who loves sharing his home with others, an owner with such a servant’s heart, and an owner who makes the whole process SO easy. Thank you, David, for helping to make our first "sibling retreat" such a success! We hope to return soon.

Very nice, but lots of rules

  • 4 of 5

Four couples shared this very nice condo for 5 nights. It is true that the space is beautifully appointed , however, the rule list was extensive (e.g. No beverages in carpeted bedrooms; check out at 9 a.m. at which time all towels were to be washed and in the dryer to avoid a fairly large laundry fee; movement of furniture was forbidden; sofas had pet-protector covers although no pets were allowed; and the list could go on). We did enjoy our stay once we looked to the very close beach and gained perspective. As already stated, this condo is very nice.....just rule heavy.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay at 202W. We spend countless hours and make every effort possible to exceed the highest expectations of every guest, so having your feedback is helpful. Each one of the 5-6 "rules of the house" are carefully thought out and are there for the protection of everyone. The rules are clearly stipulated and highlighted in the rental agreement, which must be signed and returned upon booking, indicating understanding and agreement on all points. Our highest goal is to continue to provide the newest, nicest place anywhere on the Gulf for wonderful families to enjoy. We’re very thankful for the terrific recognition we received, as evidenced by the other 39 five star reviews. I wish you would have discussed your feelings with me regarding the required rules for renting prior to your visit so I could have been of assistance in explaining why the rules are in place. Although there are very few, they are there for a specific purpose. It requires a lot thought and planning to keep everything absolutely perfect at all times, which is something of immense importance to us. With only 5.5 hours of time in between checkout and check-in and a 3700 ft.² condominium to clean and detail inside and out, we’ve tried to do everything possible to keep 202W "newer, nicer, better" and cleaner for the enjoyment of every visiting family for a very long time. Thank you again for the pleasure of serving your needs. It means a great deal and is deeply appreciated. Warmest regards and sincerest best wishes, David.

This condo was exquisite!!! We had four couples share it for a week and we all were delighted with how clean and beautiful it was, the supplies that were there for our use, the kitchen that was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and serving, and I could go on and on! David has put a lot of thought and work into this vacation home and has always been very quick to respond to any question or problem you may have!! He was delightful to talk with and you can tell he wants everyone to enjoy themselves to the utmost!! Truly a "paradise" to vacation in!! We are planning another trip here next year!!! Thanks David..........

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.

Owner's Response: Hey Sally, Thank you so much for taking the time to express so charmingly what I wish I could convey to every family considering staying with us. You are great with words, young lady! Having you all with us was such a pleasure and privilege, and something I enjoyed immensely. Although we put so much effort into exceeding expectations, the true magic of 202W Paradise is the wonderful families God allows us to serve. Thank you again for making memories with us and for your words of encouragement. They mean more than you will ever know. Your smile is what we had in mind all along :-). Best wishes for a terrific second half of 2016 and beyond. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. You are what makes 202W so very special. May God keep you all, always. Your friend, David.

ABSOLUTELY and UTTERLY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Owner's Response: Hi Tina, Thank you so very much for your gracious review and thoughtful encouragement. Having you and your family stay with us was a terrific pleasure and privilege. I am ever reminded that the "secret sauce" of Paradise is the wonderful people that visit and the friendships we build with our guests. 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.
