Alcohol beach restrictions on PCB? Alcohol is absolutely permitted on the beach for 11 months of the year. However, due to irresponsible behavior on the part of some, alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the beaches at PCB in the month of March. This is because of idiots in the past. Put your drink in a cup with a lid & you should be fine. Sitting up on the pool deck is also an option.

A perfect location for a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a perfect location for a wonderful holiday. There is nothing more we could have asked for from this condo - perfectly kept and stocked. There has been attention made to every detail, from the TV and internet service to the world's softest towels in the bathrooms! The location is exceptional: looking out over the vast ocean and perfect sand for as far as the eye can see. Add to this the fact that there are many restaurants, shops and bars within easy walking distance: you couldn't ask for anything more. We can't wait to go back, if we can find this condo available for our vacation dates!! Thank you Janice and Ande, for sharing your lovely Florida home with us, and for being so quick to respond to any questions we had. We are grateful we found this place!!

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at Calypso before but the other condo didn’t compare to this one! Everything was perfect! The furniture, the dishes, the appliances and the balcony furniture were all new and clean and great quality. There were so many little touches as well...baggies and spices and things you may forget to buy at the store. Another huge bonus was the parking spot in the garage (so convenient!!) and the beach chairs & umbrella. We have rented a lot of condos and this one definitely tops my list! The owners were very helpful and always responded quickly. Their instructions were so thorough...which I greatly appreciated!! There was nothing they didn’t think of which made our so nice and relaxing!!

The Actual Jewel of the “Emerald Isle” !!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all! The minute you arrive you realize, wow, did we make a great choice here! The condo just looks fantastic. The size, cleanliness, decor, and new appliances immediately impress. It was like entering a first class hotel. All the amenities, including toiletries, abundance of fresh towels and everything you need to get you started on your dream vacation are supplied. From the wrap around balcony, you will not get a better view of the beach, ocean and particularly the amazing sunsets anywhere in PCB! Other assets include, walking distance to Pier Park and other attractions and convenient VIP underground parking close to the elevators. The owners Ande and Janice are very amicable and did everything to ensure we had a tremendous vacation.

Five star rental!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this rental beautifully designed and immaculate, but the owners also have added personal touches that make your stay unforgettable: beach chairs and umbrella, garage parking, coffee and cookies, bathroom essentials, laundry detergent, luxury towels, sheets, and pillows, board games, and a thorough list of nearby shopping, restaurants, and entertainment to name a few. The location of the property is right in the heart of the best area of Panama City. With the Pier Park Shopping Center and restaurants across the street, should you ever get tired of the beach, there is always something fun to do. The property is on the perfect floor and the corner unit with its wrap around balcony provides the most unobstructed spectacular view of the beach, ocean , and pier. The sunrise and sunsets are amazing. If you see an opening on the rental calendar, book it because it won't last long.

Doesn’t get any better than this beautiful condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Rather than just repeat all the great things already said about Janice & Ande’s home in all the reviews, just let me say they are absolutely accurate & trustworthy. I’ll just add that we’ve been staying at the Calypso since it opened. And while all of the units we have stayed in have been nice, none of them compare to this one in every category. You can book this condo with complete confidence that everything will be just right. I don’t usually write reviews, but I thought this place was exceptional. We will most definitely will be back!
