Owner Supplied Testimonials

Date of arrival
November 10, 2016

Perfect Location! Great View!

We selected this property primarily for the location...basically across from Pier Park. So easy to check out all that Pier Park has to offer...entertainment, food options, and shopping. Also, the location makes for easy walks to Walmart and Target. The unit itself was very comfortable with an AMAZING view of the Gulf from the huge balcony. We were even treated to sightings of a variety of sea life including dolphins, sharks, sea turtles, and sting rays...used a telephoto lens and captured some nice pics even from the 22nd floor. The king bed was so comfortable, especially with the sliding glass door open (the temps in the evenings were awesome) and listening to the waves down below. The folks at White Sand Rental (especially Kim) were so attentive to our needs and VERY responsive to our calls. Would definitely stay at this property again! The ONLY knock during our stay would be the wi-fi connection (or lack thereof) appeared that we could connect to the router but the issue appeared to beyond that. We had access to our own data and wi-fi option, so it really didn't turn out to be much of an issue in the end. ~Art & Kim

Date of Stay: July 2, 2016 to July 9, 2017

8/13/16 - 8/20/16

Thank you for sending the damage deposit so quickly.
We really think we have found our summer vacation condo to rent as we loved this unit.
It is everything we looked for in renting a condo like the under garage parking, the wi fi, beach chairs, the cleanness, the 22nd floor, etc.

The communication with you folks is awesome as well, quick to respond to issues and door codes.

We look forward to contacting you next year about renting this unit and are already looking forward to it. My wife is trying to get her sisters family to go with us next year and rent one your units too!

Thanks again!
~Rick W.

Absolutely wonderful!!! I didn't see an ink pen in the condo (that I could find) to fill out the parking pass. My eyeliner pencil worked ok, will get a charge out of Thanks for a great stay. We really enjoyed the unit! ~ Charlotte & Danny M.

Date of stay: September 29, 2015

The condo was great. Everything we needed. We were fortunate that the weather ended up being really nice during our stay. Loved being able to walk to Pier Park to shop and eat. Danielle was also great to work with regarding any of our needs prior to arrival. Hope to be back next year! ~ Stacy & Randy M.

Date of stay: August 3, 2015

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful condo! We really enjoyed it! My husband and I could not have picked a better place to have our honeymoon. Everything was so great and we didn't have a problem at all. I have never went on vacation and been so satisfied with a room before. It exceeded our expectations! Thank you again and we will definitely be returning in the future! ~ Kyle and Paige H.

Date of stay: July 11, 2015

Thank you. Our stay was wonderful. I can't think of anything that could have made it better. The unit was very accommodating. We have been going to the gulf for years. This is probably the best unit we have had - not just the unit but the parking and the beach chairs too. Thank you. ~ Mark & Kea W.

Date of stay: June 6, 2015

This was one of the better decorated condos I've ever stayed in. The room was in great shape and very clean. I really like that it came with private parking. It had an awesome view of the beach and the pier. The furniture was high quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking essentials. Private WiFi so there was no lagging on our phones and iPad. The rental service was very attentive. Every time I called, someone answered the phone. Also within walking distance of pier park and the pier. Especially if you are the early morning pier fisherman/ woman. This is the place for you!! We had a great time. Thank you for a great stay!!! ~ Addison & Mallory E.

Date of stay: May 6, 2016

Great Condo that I will definitely book again in the future! ~ Dustin & Kelli P.

We really had a wonderful time. The condo was convenient to everything we needed or wanted to do. It was so nice to park underneath in the reserved space. We will definitely be coming back in the future. ~ Ashley B.

Date of stay: March 14, 2015

This unit is out of sight! We have stayed at many units in The Calypso and this one put the others to shame. Working with White sands was also great. ~ Ron & Karen 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 will 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. 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: 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.
