My wife and I loved our first stay here so much last year that we came back again this year. We will continue to book this unit every year as there is no better place to stay for a great getaway. The location is perfect. The 3rd floor is the perfect height for us. Great views from the balcony of the ocean, pool, and the pier. Pier Park is just a hop, skip, and a jump away for any kind of food, entertainment, and shopping you would ever want to do. The owners are fabulous and there response time is amazing. I don't have anything negative to say at all about our stay or this unit. I am already looking forward to our next visit!! Thank you. ~ Robert & Pam S.

Date of stay: July 4, 2015

My family enjoyed staying at your 3rd floor condo. The unit was perfect, absolutely beautiful and very convenient, as we never had to wait for an elevator. The owners are very friendly, fast to respond to any questions we had regarding the unit and very quick to refund our security deposit. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We hope to book with you again for our yearly visit to Panama City Beach, FL (AKA: Paradise)! ~ The See Family

Thank you for your prompt return of our deposit. The unit was great, the location perfect so as to not to have to move the car, and the added bonus of daily beach chairs was awesome. Once again we had a great time. ~ Kathy & Neal C.

Date of stay: February 1, 2014

Our February in PCB was a welcome relief from the usual ice and snow at home. The condo was exactly as pictured. It was clean and spacious - the view was spectacular, even saw dolphins from the balcony! Danielle, Dave & Jan were great, always available and helpful. We had no issues with the condo. They answered all questions and suggested places to see. We give this rental "thumbs up" and would certainly stay again. ~ The Jordans

Date of stay: August 23, 2013

No conplaints. Everything you could want in a condo on the beach. Great location, within walking distance to the pier, which my husband loved. Pier Park was across the street. The condo looked nice, very comfortable and lots of space. It's on the 3rd floor, which was great for viewing the ocean, beach and pool area with no long elevator rides. With everything so close by, we found we didn't do a lot of driving on this trip. We love PCB, and this condo was one of our best places we've stayed. ~ Carolyn M.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How close is this unit to Pier Park and Frank Brown Athletic Park?
A: This unit is at Calypso, so Pier Park is right across the street! No car is necessary…you can simply walk. Calypso is the only condo resort within walking distance to Pier Park. And Frank Brown Athletic Park is just a mile away. (You can walk there too if you’re looking for a little exercise.)
Q: Do you have 7-night minimums for peak spring and summer seasons, as are common in this area?
A: During the peak seasons (spring break and summer) we rent this unit Saturday to Saturday unless the unit is still available about 6 weeks prior to the arrival date. Sometimes we have special exceptions going on, so it's worth emailing an inquiry. The 3-night minimum still applies throughout the year.
Q: Do you have special stipulations for holidays?
A: Memorial Day & Labor Day weekends might require a 4-night minimum. Thanksgiving and Christmas stays might be at the October rate. Please inquire for rates and minimums.
Q: Do you have age restrictions for your rental guests?
A: Yes. Rentals are only made to responsible adults who meet our age and occupancy requirements. We do not rent to vacationing students. (Spring breaking students who are traveling without their parents, you’ll have better luck looking for something on the east end of the beach.)
Q: Do you have special rates for snowbirds who would like to extend their stays into March?
A: Yes. For our snowbirds we have an Extended Snowbird Season that goes until the second Saturday in March. After that, in most cases, we offer an Adjusted Snowbird Rate for dates that lead up to the peak Spring Break Season (usually the last week or last two weeks of March). Please inquire for exact snowbird rates in March.
Q: Do you let snowbirds have the first right of refusal for the following winter season?
A: Yes. Once you stay with us, the unit is yours for the following season(s) until you decide otherwise. For those who wish stay just one month of the season, we are still able to accommodate you, and will coordinate your reservation with another snowbird wishing to stay for just one month in a different part of the winter season. Please inquire for full details about our snowbird program.
Q: Are you new to TripAdvisor/Vacation Home Rentals?
A: Yes. We are new to TripAdvisor/VacationHomeRentals beginning in March of 2016, but we started with our first vacation rental property in 2006. For the past 10 years we have had all our properties listed on a competitor’s well-known ‘vacation rental by owner’ site, but in February 2016 that site began charging travelers a pretty hefty service fee just for using the site. We thought this was unfair to travelers because owners already pay an annual fee to list each property on the site. So in March of 2016 we decided to list our properties with TripAdvisor/VacationHomeRentals, where we pay an annual fee for each property, and the site is still free for travelers to use - as we believe it should be.
Q: How do I know you are a legitimate property management company?
A: As noted in the answer above, we began listing our properties in 2006 on another well-known site for vacation rentals by owner. The information on that site confirms we have been with them since 2006, and if you would like to read our reviews on that site, just let me know, and I will be happy to provide you with the web addresses for our properties. Also, as a way of protecting our guests from any type of scams at the hands of fraudsters pretending to be us, we have several safety measures in place: 1) We do all of our bookings over the phone, and the only number we use for this process is the phone number listed on this site. We do not set up or take reservations via email or any other form of contact other than directly speaking with you in a phone conversation. 2) We will never ask you to send any funds via a wire transfer (i.e. Western Union, etc.). This is a method of payment that is untraceable, and it’s why fraudsters like to use it. 3) The only address we will ever ask you to mail anything to is our PO Box here in Panama City Beach. This address is PO Box 7021, Panama City Beach, FL 32413. (We’re a family-run business, so my mother is the one who always picks up the mail, and the postal employees there know her by name). One of our top priorities is making sure that our guests are protected and interacting only with us. If any of these safety measures are not being followed, then it’s someone pretending to be us. We encourage anyone to report fraudsters to TripAdvisor and also at the site they suggest in their own FAQ’s.
Q: Do you charge for parking or a “resort use fee” to use the pool or beach? Do you have any other hidden fees?
A: No. We do not charge for parking or for resort use, and we have no hidden or extra fees. We only charge for the rental, cleaning and taxes. The rate we quote you is the full and final price. Plain and simple and straight forward.
