Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time. The unit was very clean and we loved being at the end. The beach chairs were a bonus.

The process from booking to check out was well organized and very easy to manage.

We look forward to staying at the Calypso again.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful with great views and lots of space. It's kept clean and has fairly comfortable beds. Calypso is very conveniently located close to just about everything you would need.

Everything you want and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo during the last week of July, 2016. It was absolute perfection. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you can possible think of with high quality dishes and pots and pans! The living area is super spacious with an INCREDIBLE view of the ocean! The Owners took LOTS of time giving detailed instructions of how to use the TV, DVD player, and Cable remotes. Very much appreciated and saved us a lot of time trying to figure out how to use each device. The WIFI worked great both inside and on the balcony! The curtains in each room are very good quality and do a great job of blocking out the sun so you can sleep-in if you choose. The mattresses were GREAT and slept very well, and the bedding is great quality also. There were plenty of extra pillows, sheets and blankets if you needed them for the pull out sofa (which we did not use). The master bathroom and closet were very spacious. The linens were good heavy soft towels, not the cheap ones usually found in rentals. The balcony is SUPER spacious with 5 chairs, 2 tables and a lounge chair. I used the balcony every day for at least 2 hours. Sit right in the corner, the wind is constant and is will never get hot sitting there! We LOVED the balcony and the AMAZING views! We could not have loved this condo more!

You get 2 chairs and an umbrella with the rental, which is great. Go down and get your chairs reserved first thing. You keep the same chairs your entire visit. My advise, go down as soon as you get there so you can get on the front row. It is a nice "extra" to have these chairs!

Calypso in itself was good, very close to Pier Park, which is very convenient. Traffic was not as bad as we expected so that was good! It is VERY VERY busy on check-in day at the Resort, but the owners provide some great advise on getting checked in and unloaded with minimal issues. It does help to heed their advise to avoid long waits for the elevators on check-in day. The pools are big but limited on chairs, we never got to actually sit in a chair as the Resort was near capacity I am guessing. You can bring your beach chair and set up in the pool area, so that helps!

You will love this condo and the Owners are very good at responding or sending you all the information you need to have a great vacation! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!!

Owner's Response: Hi Ben & Vicki, We're glad to know you enjoyed the unit and your stay. We certainly apologize if the internet issue inconvenienced you at all. Normally we don't have any internet issues in the building, and this was just a temporary glitch on Comcast's end which affected the whole tower and has since been addressed. But we are definitely happy that you had a great time overall and would like to rent with us again.

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent visit to this beautiful condo. It was very clean, and the unit was available for us at our check in time. Pier Park is a short walk away, and has shops, restaurants, a cinema, and fairground for children. Jan and Dave are a pleasure to work with. Any problems are quickly addressed, and they go out of their way to ensure everything is perfect for their guests. We can't wait to go back again!

Fabulous weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for the Seabreeze Jazz Festival. The unit was perfect, really clean and spacious. The balcony views were amazing and especially enjoyed the close proximity to Pier Park. We have already booked for next year's festival!
