About Raymond Garcia

Having lived in Florida for the last 24 years, I have always loved St Petersburg and love to get away to relax and enjoy nature at this lovely get-away place!

Raymond Garcia purchased this condo in 2013

Why Raymond Garcia chose St Petersburg Area

Bahia del Mar is a vacationer's paradise given its proximity to the beach as well as the lovely community where you will feel at home and not want to leave once your vacation is up.

What makes this condo unique

Bahia del Mar is special because it is resort-like yet has a cozy flair to want to call this place home. I love the abundance of royal palm trees that surround the property.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The condo was, as you can see from the photo, bright, uncluttered, and stylish with a pleasant water view. With two bedrooms and two baths, it worked great for two couples. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances. The location was great--near St. Pete's beach (and convenient shopping (big grocery and drugstores) as well as lots of restaurants. Though it seemed far from town (where I was having medical treatment), it's right near a highway--leave the bucolic grounds of the resort and get right on it, a straight shot to town. The owners were very helpful the two times we called with questions. Highly recommenede.

Great stay at this beautiful condo with its amazing views of the spectacular sunsets. Sad to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been renting in St. Pete every spring for years and I can honestly say that this was probably the nicest (and cleanest!) condos that we have ever stayed in. The renovated bathrooms and kitchen were particularly nice. The condo was very bright inviting. The kitchen was well equipped and the BBQ on the balcony was a nice perk for those evenings we just wanted to stay in and watch the amazing sunsets from the balcony. We will absolutely stay here again!

A great place to pass winter months!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are from Montreal, Canada. We have spent the month of March each year at Bahia del Mar appartment the last three years and have reserved again that month for next year.

Lillian and her husband Raymond have been very helpful and have responded to all of our observations as to what could be improved (very minor things...)

The condo is large, comfortable and equiped with more kitchenware that we have at home! The remodelling was a success. (We experienced it before and after!)

It is located on Isla del Sol Island which is a quiet and safe place to pass weeks to enjoy the floridian climate (which we appreciate coming from up north)The security people are present and always courteous with the residents.

We have only but good notes of appreciation to give to the owners of this appartment.

This is a good one!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this fabulous, upscale condo for 2 months and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We loved the ambiance of this newly-renovated, beautifully decorated, very comfortable and clean condo. Lounging on the soft, sink-into furniture watching the super large TV in the living area was a treat - like your being in your own movie theater. Another treat was the pool and beach area. I could walk barefoot out the door carrying just a towel (condo-provided) walk down some steps and be in sunshine heaven. The pool (including a hot tub) has lots and lots of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. All ages enjoyed the pool; at times it could be noisy. The beach area also has lounge chairs and tiki umbrellas and was nice for quiet sunbathing and perhaps fishing. While I enjoyed sunning my husband had a great time playing lots of golf. When our son visited, he went kayaking at DeSoto State Park and raved about the experience. We attended wonderful performances at the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Pete (20 min. drive to downtown) and Ruth Eckherd Hall in Tampa. Driving just a mile or two and taking a right at the Don Cesar brings you to St. Pete Beach and a continuous string of beautiful beaches you can sample. If you turn left at the Don Cesar you'll find Pass-a-Grill Beach - one of my favorites.

The condo is equipped with just about anything you can think of: beach chairs, wine glasses, Tupperware containers, every kind of small kitchen appliance, spices, etc., etc. And everything single thing in the condo is of high quality. It is like staying at a luxurious hotel. The flooring, tiles, lighting throughout are tastefully modern.

Bahia del Mar is a safe area; friendly security people were ever-present. This is a great place for walking.

The owners were a pleasure to work with, very responsive. Everything about our experience was positive. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

Couldn't Have Dreamed of a More Perfect Escape. Gorgeous. Tasteful. Immaculate.

  • 5 of 5

I flew to St. Petersburg to have a complex surgery done by a world-renowned surgeon. The required pre- and post-op stay for the procedure was two weeks. I’d never stayed at a VRBO-type condo before, but my doctor's office strongly suggested this over a hotel setting. Boy, am I glad they did!

The owners of this condo have decorated it perfectly. High-end, comfortable furniture and luxury linens combined with a splash of beach décor make the space more appealing than one could imagine via photos. Nothing about this unit feels cluttered or without purpose. Unlike other rentals I saw online, this vacation condo does not feel like someone else's personal home--just a cheerful and quiet retreat.

Because I was recovering from surgery during most of my stay, I didn't make use of the pool, but I did find solace in the chairs on the private beach, watching the sailboats drift under Pinellas Bayway, listening to the gentle lap of the surf, or witnessing a thunderstorm off in the distance. Each evening as the sun drifted westward, I experienced—be it from the balcony, the bedroom, or the beach--colors and light combinations I never knew existed. It was simply glorious.

The condo is immaculately clean and tidy. The owners have anticipated everything visitors might need. I only had three minor issues pop up during my stay, and the owners responded promptly and appropriately to make sure I was comfortable and happy. I feel like they are old friends!

I can’t recommend this wonderful paradise enough. I loved it there.

Yes, I do agree that our condo and its amenities provided the necessary retreat you needed for healing and I am grateful to have been able to contribute to that for you! I hope to see you back in paradise soon!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo for one month (jun-jul 2016). It was perfect. The apartment is new, equipped with everything you need, very well decorated, clean and confortable. The condo is just amazing and the swiming pool is great, just steps away from the apartment. The owners are very organized and made our stay very pleasant. We felt like we were at home. We would love to return when we next visit St. Pete. We loved everything.
