FLIP FLOP'S WELCOME TO FIRST FLOOR PARADISE!
You will not find a better view from your condo or balcony than Calypso first floor! Just look at our photos and video!
We have new bunks with a FULL size bed below and TWIN upper, so our condo can actually sleep 9, except the fire code limits our size unit to an occupancy of 8.
Wall mounted TV/DVD player in bunkroom for happy (grand)kids!
100% CLEAN BEACH GUARANTEE! If our pristine beaches are closed for any reason, your rent will be refunded - prorated if closed during your stay at Calypso and you wish to check out. Hopefully, you will be having such a great time at your two amazing free form pools of Calypso, and the outstanding entertainment, restaurants, and shopping across the street at Pier Park - YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE! :)
Choosing Calypso First Floor across from Pier Park will be the smartest move you will make for 2014!
Calypso is the ONLY condo where you can truly WALK to Pier Park, and being on the ground floor is an added bonus. Fly into the NEW Panama City Beach airport (ECP) and you won't even need a car! $20 will get you from the airport to Calypso!
FREE IN-ROOM WI-FI! (We purchased an in-room router for your convenience. Most Calypso condos offer plug-in internet, but not wireless:)
HUNDREDS OF DVDS IN OUR LIBRARY!
FREE DELUXE BEACH CHAIR/UMBRELLA SETUPS (Seasonal) FOR OUR GUESTS! ($230 weekly value!)
You will have a front row seat in cushioned luxury - heavy beach umbrellas that won't blow over, set up and adjusted to your liking daily! Relax and enjoy! WE also provide extra beach chairs to sit around the shade of the large umbrella, or pull them right up to the water's edge and let the ocean cool your feet.
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
Panama City Beach - Calypso First Floor - Calypso First Class! Breathtaking Ocean and Poolfront Views from Your Master Suite and Living Room!
New 40' Sony Flat Screen TV in LR
New 42' LG Flat Screen TV in Master BR

For BABY Beachlovers, we offer a PORT-A-CRIB & HIGH CHAIR.
Relax and enjoy FIRST FLOOR convenience with an expansive ocean view! Just steps from the pool! You will love the oversized balcony which overlooks the ocean and one of two wonderful 172' free-form pools (one heated to 80+ degrees!). You have complete balcony access and ocean views from both the living room and master suite! You don't even have to get out of bed to see and enjoy the ocean! Let the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep!
Don't worry about privacy, Calypso 'ropes off' the pool areas afer 10PM. You CANNOT see in the unit during the daytime (We've tried!). All you will see is the reflection of the palm trees and ocean shining back at you:) When closed, our custom draperies are very room darkening. The only problem is you may sleep too late to get up with the sun. The dolphins are most active in the morning!
Professionally decorated with Calypso's Waterstone SEASIDE COTTAGE furniture and operating package - Chosen to give the highest Platinum ranking by Calypso management. Your luxury Condo (nine foot ceilings) easily accommodates eight, with king-size bed in the master suite, queen-size bed in the front bedroom on the left, bunk beds (FULL bed on lower bunk, will sleep nine) in the front bedroom on the right, and a queen sleeper sofa. (We just added 2 matching Lane Recliners - Perfect spot to prop up your flip flops after a hard day of beachcombing!)
Because your comfort is important to us, our fully equipped kitchen (granite countertops, of course) is stocked with all luxuries of home. Prepare your favorite dish, or blend yourself a Margarita at the wet-bar before heading off to Margaritaville, a few FLIP FLOPS away!
Mom says she is on vacation and doesn't plan to cook much? No problem! There are many great restaurants in walking distance and a great carryout called Fatty's, is just across the street. We have menus in the condo, and often run across the street for carryouts to enjoy on the patio at sunset! Can't miss sunset!!!
Our unit offers a separate laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. Being able to close the laundry room door means no laundry noise to interrupt your quiet time in the evenings :)
We have also installed extra storage cabinets for your use.
CALYPSO WEST 104 CONVENIENCE - You will appreciate the easy access to our FIRST FLOOR CONDO for loading and unloading. There is 15 minute parking right outside your door! We are just a few short 'flip-flops' from the pool and the beach. No steps! Leave your frustrations behind! ZERO time waiting on elevators = MAXIMIZED BEACH TIME!!!

Serving as the premiere Northwest Florida shopping destination, this mecca offers dining, specialty shops, attractions, events and more. Come get your feet wet with Panama City Beach shopping!
With 5 championship golf courses (including the only Nicklaus Design course in Northwest Florida), 320 days of sunshine a year, and an average temperature of 74 degrees, it's no wonder that Golf Digest magazine named Panama City Beach one of America's top three golf towns. There's plenty of variety, too! In fact, with 162-holes to play, you'd be hard pressed to squeeze all the great golf Panama City Beach offers into one vacation. Thanks to affordable greens fees and tee times available year-round, visitors to Panama City Beach quickly figure out why golfers who want to shave a few strokes off their game are flocking to enjoy Panama City Beach's golf courses:
Bay Point Resort Golf Club 850-235-6950

Signal Hill Golf Course 850-234-3218
If you love water sports (and if not, you're about to!), the big question here isn't what to do, it's how to fit it all in. At Panama City Beach, water sports aren't just something to do, they're a way of life. Best of all, we've got all the equipment, guides and lessons you need right here.
CRUISING, BOATING, FISHING:
The Gulf of Mexico is beautiful from the white-sand shores of Panama City Beach, but you get a totally different perspective out on the water, whether you're fishing, zipping across the Gulf on a banana boat or just kicking back on one of our famous sunset cruises. Dolphin cruises are another great way to see Panama City Beach by water and observe dolphins in their natural habitat.
DIVING & SNORKELING:
What does every diver want? Great weather, great water and an underwater landscape teeming with life. Done, done and done! Experienced divers love our reefs and wrecks, and for newcomers, snorkeling is the perfect introduction to Panama City Beach water sports!
Skimboarders run towards the ocean, drop into the thin wash of retreating waves, then skim out to sea and ride the breaking waves back to shore. Our sugar-white sands and flat waters make Panama City Beach a must-skim destination.
Take a dolphin tour - go solo, or aboard a 2 OR 3 seater.
SUP - Stand Up PADDLEBOARDING:
One of the hottest newcomers to Panama City Beach water sports, paddle boarding uses big boards, letting riders stand and gently paddle their way across the water.
Part of what makes Panama City Beach water sports unique is that there are opportunities for everyone - experts and newbies alike - and surfing is one area where we're perfect for beginners. With our white-sand beaches, mild climate and mid-sized Gulf waves, entry-level never felt so good!
Fast boats lift parachutes high in the air, and you with them. Go solo, or try our big chutes to share the experience with family and friends. Of all the beach sports you might try, this one that gives you a bird's-eye view you'll never forget!
ST ANDREWS STATE PARK -
St. Andrews State Park was named the #2 beach in the nation, but whether you're interested in sunbathing on the beach, snorkeling along the jetties, canoeing, kayaking or hiking through the forest, there's something for everyone here! Fishing from the pier or the jetties is popular, and a boat ramp provides access to St. Andrew Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Nature trails wind through a rich diversity of coastal plant communities providing an excellent opportunity for bird-watching - You might even spot a deer! Take a boat tour to pristine Shell Island. The 700-acre island is home to deer, turtles, pelicans, sandpipers, gulls and piping and snowy plovers, and in the surrounding waters you'll spot colorful fish, dolphins, sea turtles and other aquatic life. Shuttles are available to take visitors back and forth from St. Andrews State Park, and pontoon boat rentals are another popular way to get to Shell Island.
Part of a growing greenways and trails system that will span the entire island of Panama City Beach. Gayle's Trails connects Frank Brown Park to the 3,000-acre Panama City Beach Conservation Park, where you'll find long boardwalks crossing cypress swamps, off-road trails perfect for walking or biking.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Since 1980 I have looked forward to our annual family vacation in Panama City Beach. We stayed at St. Andrews Park in a pop-up camper and had a blast. When we grew up, Mom and Dad finally bought a condo. To make a sad story short, my Dad died suddenly in 2002 and Mom sold the condo. I convinced Mom to buy another one - with my husband and ME! As soon as I learned about Calypso, I knew it was the perfect spot for our family. Our arrangement has worked out great. I handle the bookkeeping and Mom takes good care of our guests! THIS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR! We hope you will enjoy our FLIP FLOPS FAMILY FUNSPOT as much as we do. Sunshine, Kerry
