Owner Supplied Testimonials

Date of Arrival: September 10, 2016
Great condo, Amazing location

I had no issues with this condo. Its in a great location and has an amazing view. You can see the pier from the balcony and it was lovely for dolphin watching. There was TV and wifi which made staying in at night great. And perfect distance from pier park, we walked there several times. ~Cassidy G.

Date of Stay: August 22,2016
This was my first stay at Calypso, the unit was just beautiful, no problems with anything. Will stay at unit again.~Doyle & Louann S.

Date of stay: August 26, 2015

Me and my husband came here for our anniversary. Very clean and looked just like it in the pictures, unlike some places the pictures are deceiving. Dave and Jan were very nice couple. And Danielle was very helpful when we needed it! Doing business with them is right on the money from the beginning. Good directions on everything we needed to do from arrival to departure. We will definitely be coming back & doing business with you guys when our baby turns one next year!:) ~ Faith & Dalton S.

Date of stay: August 5, 2015

We loved the place, it was just as the picture displayed it and you guys were always so nice. We will stay with you guys again. Thanks so much. HOPE YOU HAVE A BLESSED DAY! ~ Rick & Pam T.

Date of stay: July 31, 2015

We really enjoyed your unit. We especially loved the bathroom and balcony as they were much larger than the 4 person condos we've stayed in before. This was our first time staying at Calypso and we would definitely consider staying there again. We LOVED that the beach chair service was included with the room!! Thanks for the hospitality and for making everything so easy. Sent from my iPhone ~ Anna & Chris W.

Date of stay: June 14, 2015

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Calypso and your guy Dave was a great point of contact! This was my first time at Calypso and I would definitely return there again. I recently sold my place down at Majestic Beach, where I had been for 10 years, so this was literally my first time renting in many years. Of course I really enjoyed being within walking distance of Pier Park and I have never really stayed on that end of the beach in all of the years I have been coming down. My experience at your place was very positive! What do you charge per night after Labor Day, September and October? I will be happy to recommend your place! And the deposit arrived in today’s mail. Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from Danielle about September and October. ~ Clint H.

Date of stay: April 10, 2015

We have stayed at Calypso many time but this was the first time in the unit. Very clean - very nice unit. Would recommend it to anyone. ~ Dennis & Debbie H.

Date of stay: August 17, 2014

We enjoyed every minute we were there. The condo was perfect. My husband said the master bedroom king size bed was the most comfortable he has slept on in a while. The view and amenities were the best! Can't wait for next summer-this is going to start being a tradition! ~ D'Anne & Dennis C.

Date of stay: March 22, 2014

The condo was great. Listing was accurate as to location, pictures, amenities and attractions. The unit was very clean and in tip top shape. It is extremely spacious for a one bedroom and the master bathroom is gorgeous. Views from bedroom and living room are fabulous Very quiet at night. Danielle was great and very prompt when we had inquiries. It was a huge bonus to have a phone with free long distance. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this condo. Kudos to Dave, Jan & Danielle. ~ Maureen B.

Date of stay: June 15, 2013

The condo is very comfortable, and well-stocked, with a beautiful view from the balcony. It was also very clean. Danielle, Jan and Dave were very professional, and our security deposit was returned promptly. We also appreciated the beach service, which was included in the rental. It was a short walk to the restaurants and shops of Pier Park, and there was a fairground for children, and a movie theater. We'd love to stay here again. ~ John & Janet W.

Date of stay: January 1, 2013

Excellent condo, comfortable, completely stocked and actually has all the comforts of home but in the setting of Panama City Beach. We loved our stay for the 2 months, but the time went much too fast and looking forward to coming back in the future. This property is surrounded with activities and new business coming into the Pier Park area and all within walking distance. This condo is very clean and well maintained. We give it very high marks. ~ Robert & Helen W.

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. 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.
