About Jan

We have been visiting Panama City Beach since 1992. We love it so much that we have decided to make it our winter home after retirement. It's the prettiest beach we have ever seen!

Jan purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jan chose Panama City Beach

We bought in this location because you can walk to everything!

What makes this condo unique

We love the beach landscape, the pier, and the park across the street--easy access to everything you want to do. The specialty foods are easy to find. We enjoy getting our fresh seafood at 'Buddy's Seafood Market' @ 79 & PCB Pkwy and either getting it steamed while there or bringing it home to prepare while enjoying a sunset from our balcony. Calypso is the most convenient and most relaxing place to be. We like the 'beach house' feel of being on the ground floor. There are no schedules when you're here!

Beautiful unit and awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful ground floor unit and we had a great time. We usually don't stay in ground floor units but the accessibility to the pool, loading/unloading, and the beach was PERFECT! I was afraid of the noise factor being so close to the pool and bar but it was not a problem at all. The unit is well insulated. I highly recommend staying in this unit and it was very clean and well apportioned.

This property was so convenient to everything we wanted to do. The tiki bar, pools and beach are right there. Jan was very easy to work with. We had some confusion with our codes when we first got there but it was corrected immediately! Easy walk to the Pier and Pier Park. Enjoyed the stay! Thanks for sharing your place!

Very enjoyable and convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very nice and clean. We loved being on the first floor and on the corner unit. We were a little skeptical about the view and the noise level being in that location but the noise was not a factor at all and the view was great! The property security folks are a little over protective of the 30 minute parking out front(loading/unloading) I believe they have 15 minutes in their mind! Parking garage is across the street and that is a busy road, so, you do have to use the walkway overpass to access your vehicle most of the time just an FYI. The unit comes with the beach chair setup which is great but you better go claim your spot for the day early if you want front row. Overall, great place for couples and/or families for sure! I would definitely recommend to my friends.

True island feel with this spacious 1st floor condo

  • 5 of 5

I consider this to be a great find after looking at countless condos. It's been my experience that's it's almost impossible to find a unit on the first floor of anything anywhere (I really despise elevators)....and 1500 sq ft for a two bedroom is even more unusual. So this is truly a gem! The master bedroom and bath is huge with a big walk in closet. The second bedroom has it's own bathroom which is nice. The kitchen and living area is open with lots of nice granite counter space. And one of the best parts is you just walk out of the front door, turn right, and take about 6 steps and you're in the open breezeway looking right at the Tiki Bar with two pools, one of the right and one on the left, right there. Then just keeping going a few more steps and you're on the way to the beach. It is also well insulated...even though it is so close to everything once the big glass doors are closed I never heard a thing. Amazing!! The Calypso is a beautiful and well kept property and the staff was very nice. Jan, the owner is totally accommodating...I was in constant contact with her and whenever I had a question she answered me right away. I feel like we are best friends now! Thank you Jan!! We will definitely be back!
