'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.

David has thought of everything you need to have a great vacation.

He has a fantastic unit and his attention to detail is unbelievable.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo and its location. The condo was very well stocked with pots, pans and everything else you may possibly need during your stay. Our group is already thinking about renting this exact condo again next year. The owner was super nice and very easy to work with.

Beautiful Condo With A Spectacular View!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is beautiful with an incredible view of the sandy white beach and water!!! The floor to ceiling glass windows throughout the unit along with the huge wrap around balcony really brings the beach indoors! We enjoyed sipping coffee while viewing the gorgeous sunrises and having cocktails and appetizers on the balcony watching the dolphins and beautiful sunsets. There is a good mix of comfortable outdoor furniture to enjoy. Everything inside the condo is state of the art, from all the top notch cooking appliances, refrigerator, wine cooler and even the motorized shades in the master bedroom and area off from the kitchen. Everything inside the unit works together to make the unit visually pleasing, functional and comfortable! David was a pleasure to work with. He provided a full welcome packet with all the gate codes and pertinent information needed for our stay. The full packet was delivered to my home address a full week or more before our vacation date. Oh,and yes, it is true!!!! The unit is stocked to the max with every supply imaginable!!!!! Thank you , David, for a really enjoyable week. We really had a great time!

Paradise!!! , is the perfect word to summarize this condo and its wonderful features and amenities. Perdido Key is the destination that I have been revisiting for over 25 years. This is the only condo that I would have given a 10 rating and believe me it deserves a 10. I am a small business owner and I have a team of 7 women and we need a place that would give us space and also comfort. We walk in, it was the WOW factor. This condo had everything we needed. The owner goes over and beyond stocking the essentials no trips to Walmart. It is everything it states and more. I will be takeing my family back. It’s the Grand Hilton with the comfort of home. This Trip was a true blessing.

We work hard to set the bar high and then blow away expectations. as we believe it's just the right thing to do. Serving others and providing a place for friends and families to make memories that will last a lifetime is what 202W is all about. Having your thumbs-up makes it all the more worthwhile. Please give my warmest to everyone. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. May God keep you always, my friend. All the best, David
