About Cara English Catrett

My husband and I grew up in neighboring small Alabama towns, only 90 minutes from the beautiful Florida beaches. We've spent our whole lives enjoying all kinds of beach activities like swimming, snorkeling, fishing, canoeing, and boating. It seemed only natural that we would choose Panama City Beach for our vacation getaway home. As true Southerners, we love to share the famous 'southern hospitality' with our guests. We'd so love to host you and your family! I'm sure you'll love our beach home as much as we do. In fact, you probably won't want to leave!

Why Cara English Catrett chose Florida North West

Calypso is the perfect resort in the perfect location! Our resort is very upscale and elegant. The condo is wide and spacious, with the feel of a home. We definitely cater to families rather than the 'wild' crowd.

What makes this condo unique

PIER PARK! Also the city fishing pier 100 yards away; 2 pools; tiki bar; helicopter rides 1 block away; Gulf World within easy walking distance; wave runners, parasailing, banana boat rides right on our own beach. You don't even have to get in your car to find something fun to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Simply paradise!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 11, 2015

A Bear’s Birthday Stay We could not have picked a more perfect place to celebrate my best bear friend’s birthday. This condo was more than we expected and we already were in love with it just from the pictures. The pictures do not do it justice. The check-in was a sea breeze and from there all we had on our agenda was rest and relaxation. Cara made the stay so enjoyable by making sure we had everything we needed so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The entire condo had more than enough space. There were 7 of us bears all together and the condo slept each of us comfortably in beds. It was great being able to just enjoy each other’s company and sit down for meals. We spent almost an hour on the balcony just watching the prettiest sunset we had ever seen. We watched dolphins from the balcony every day and it took just 2 minutes to get to the beach. When you stand on the balcony you feel like you are on the edge of the world with nothing but clear emerald water in front of you. Besides being so close to the beach you are within walking distance of Pier Park which we went to every night to celebrate. Even the locals were welcoming. I’m fairly certain this bear will be back again.

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the sweet review. It was a joy working with you two on your month-long Winter vacation. And I'm so glad you enjoyed so many days of warm weather this February -- so many days in the mid-70s! We hope you'll come again soon.

The condo was beautiful and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Really loved staying at this condo. Loved that it had everything you need for the beach, beach chairs, beach towels and toys. Also loved that we were in walking distance of places to eat and shop at pier park. Would love to come back again.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed the beach towels, toys, chairs, etc. that we leave at the condo. It seems that you always go home from vacation with more to pack than you brought; so the beach items in our condo hopefully make packing a little easier. Thanks for the great review!
