My wife and I stayed here and we had one of the best vacations we have ever had! Crickett was very easy to work with and provided great information about the condo. The condo is easy to find and there is an elevator that only goes to the 4th floor and opens up just next to the condo. When we arrived the Condo was very clean and nice. Loved having a washer/dryer, full kitchen, and beach chairs. The balcony was fantastic, loved that it when the entire length of the condo. The bathroom was stocked with towels and washrags and a hair dryer was also provided. Pier Park was very nice as well. Lots of nice stores and it’s within walking distance. Only time we had to drive was to Schooner to get dinner a few nights and to take a sunset cruise with Sea Screamer which I highly recommend.

I strive, and it is my desire, to make my condo one of the nicest, not only at Calypso but also, in all of Panama City Beach. If my unit does not meet your expectations, please contact me immediately to resolve any issues you may have.

Great condo! Great location!
Great condo! Great location!
My wife and I spent a week in this condo and found everything excellent! The property is clean and well kept. The listing description is very accurate and the condo looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The location of the unit (4th floor) was a hugh plus. There is a set of elevators in the building that only services the first four floors. No long waits for the elevator to come. There is also a nearby stairwell we used to go down one floor and into the parking garage. We spent several days lounging on the beach in the chairs Criket provides. It is very peaceful to sit out on the balcony at any time of day and take in the beach. You feel very connected to the water and the sand. Pier Park and all of its restaurants and nightlife is a short walk (5 minutes). The only issue we had was with the wireless internet. I called Criket and she fixed it immediately. Getting into and out of Calypso by car is easy. No problems with traffic on front beach road at all. If it is just the two of us again, we will not stay in any other condo. It is just that good. We highly recommend Tootsie's in Pier Park for live music and dancing. The condo is also a short walk to Sharky's restaurant right on the beach. Another highlight of our visit was Hunt's Oyster House in Panama City. This is a family-owned home run. If you are looking for a great, low key oyster bar, this is it. Many thanks to Criket. We will be back!

Overall, the condo was nice, great location, love the beach! However, this non-smoking condo reeked of cigarette smoke when we walked in, the floors were dirty, the mattress uncomfortably hard, and a large chair in the bedroom was broken and propped up against the wall. We could have overlooked all this, but it has been the communication and response with owner afterwards that I can not overlook. My daughter accidentally left a camera case with several expensive lens in the condo. When I contacted Criket, she said we were in luck... her daughter had found the bag and would gladly send it it us. I emailed her our address along with an offer to reimburse her for shipping. I didn't hear anything else from her and did not receive the bag. After several unanswered emails and multiple unanswered phone calls, I finally got her on the phone by using a phone with a different number. She told me her daughter lived in another town and that she would either see her or call her to follow up on the bag. That was over 2 weeks ago. She has not answered my last email. I realize owners are not responsible for belongings left behind, but she offered to return the bag to us and it would have been nice for her to follow through and not avoid my attempts at communication.

Owner response: I am very sorry your experience was not all you had hoped for. I was unaware that the camera was not returned in a timely manner. I thought my daughter had returned it. If anyone EVER has a problem with the cleanliness or smell of the unit (IT IS A NON-SMOKING UNIT), please contact me immediately upon your arrival. I will gladly have my the cleaning company I am contracted with to come out and do a 2nd cleaning. Unfortunately, because I do rent my condo to tenants, occasionally breakage will occur. Please always let me know if the condo does not meet your expectations and I will gladly resolve any issues you may have.
We've made many beach trips to the gulf area, but this is the nicest condo we've ever stayed in. Not only was it beautiful, but it was super clean, comfy and like being at home. Crickett really does think of everything! I loved breakfast on the veranda, shelling and swimming on the beach, then on to the well maintained pool to read and nap. My husband enjoyed golfing at several courses that were conveniently located nearby. We dined at several good restaurants, including Angelo's Steak Pit, Capt. Anderson's (it's a tradition!), and a new favorite, Uncle Ernie's, located in old St. Andrew's. We visited Pier Park several times for shopping and dining. So much to do, but not nearly enough time!We loved our week at Calypso we both agree that we will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful condo and Great location!!!!!
Beautiful condo and Great location!!!!!
I can't say enough about this condo but I'll give it a shot. As soon as I entered the condo, my first reaction was,WOW.....Beautiful place!!! The interior is very tastfully done. It is very clean and comfortable. Like home away from home. Cricket has made sure that you have everything you may need. The kitchen is stocked with all dishes,cookware, appliances and linens that you may need during your visit. Bathroom is huge and the linens plush and plentiful. Iron,ironing board, and hairdryer are there if you need them,( no need to bring your own). The 4th floor view is perfect. You are right by the elevator so access is very convient. We stayed here 4/29 - 5/3. This was bike week. My husband and myself enjoy riding but it was nice to go back to the condo and not hear the noise on the strip. The bedroom is on the beach side rather than on the breezeway at the front of the condo. The living room and bedroom have sliding glass doors out to the huge patio. The entire wall is glass so the veiw from inside is awsome. You are right at the middle of the west pool, but because of the shape,it doesn't take away from the beach view. Location is great and the parking deck is a plus. Peir Park is great for shopping, eating and people watching. You are close to everything, but this place still maintains a very serene beach atmosphere. We will definately be back for many more great stays:)

This condo was great! My husband and I spent a week in Panama City in mid-May and even on a couple of bad weather days, the condo was a perfect place to relax and enjoy ourselves. The condo has everything that you need except for clothes and food. Any couple or small family looking for a great condo to stay in...I would recommend this one without a doubt. The owner, Crickett, if very nice and easy to make arrangements with. She makes sure that your stay is very comfortable. The condo really feels like a home and not like any other vacation rental! We will definitely stay here again! Thanks a million Crickett!

Our week at Calypso in this 4th floor unit was delightful! Comfortable living, amenities plentiful and great proximity to Pier Park. And the elevator just off the front desk that only goes up 4 stories was a bonus (especially when so many people are trying to "move in" on Saturday). Cricket was great to work with! We would definitely stay in this unit again.

Owners are very kind & accomodating. Super clean condo and complex. Condo is located directly next to west tower elevators- easy access. Very spacious w/ fabulous oceanfront balcony. Condo is well stocked w/ towels, linens, paper products, & soaps. Many dining options across the street at Pier Park. Park the car-there will be no need for it once you are here.
