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 Florida North West

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.

Perfect vacation place.

  • 5 of 5

I could not have ask for more. This room is absolutely beautiful. Jan has everything up need. The room is amazing. It took my breath away. It's location in the resort was what my family needed. My son is autistic and I have a 21 month grandbaby...eveything was right there. I can not recommend this condo enough. I dream to stay there again.

That you Jan!

Glenwood, Ga

fabulous unit

  • 5 of 5

This condo is super nice! It is very spacious as described. I did think by the description of corner unit, it would be on outside (end) corner, it is on the inside corner (corner of the corridor). Not a big deal, I guess I misunderstood. WE actually loved the unit itself, but the staff/security at Calypso is a different story. They are grouchy and rude. The 15min unload area states 15min. as soon as you pull up they holler at you. The security girl at the pool never smiles, never greets with a hello, just all business and bossy. Maybe they were still getting over Spring Break kids. But this is MY vacation and they are in the hospitality business. Maybe Jan can let me know how to file a direct complaint!

Excellent stay at this ground floor condo! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at PCB this week and this condo was a huge reason why! First, the Calypso Resort is, in my opinion, one of the best and most convenient locations in PCB! You are within walking distance to Pier Park and centrally located to everything. As for this particular unit, it is definitely unique in that the layout is very open and spacious! We love the ground floor and have stayed in another ground floor unit at the Calypso Resort in the past, but the location and layout of this one can't be beat. It is clearly located right off the pool next to the tiki bar, but we never had any problem with noise! The unit is very well insulated and they have very sturdy curtains if you want to sleep in and keep the light out! With the balcony being right off the pool it is convienent for handing over any rafts, beach bags, etc, but if you forget something it's not a big deal to just run and get it! The balcony is also way oversized so there is plenty of room without being crowded. It's great for for small children to have room to play without worrying about them falling over (if you worry like me 😜). The beach is also a short distance and you are close to the main walkway so you don't have to walk down long hallways. Unloading was also amazing. You are the first condo right around the corner from the unloading station. We had a ton of luggage and made several trips to the grocery store and never needed a cart. We were also never rushed. There is no need to use an elevator for this unit so even at the busiest times of the year that would never be an issue! It was very well equipped with all cooking supplies and dishes! Very clean. After seeing a previous review I just want to say that it IS clearly stated in the contract that bands are $25 if lost or stolen and not left in the condo upon departure. It was also posted in several places all over the unit. This is not uncommon and has been a rule for any condo I've ever rented as it does cause an inconvenience to the owner, the cleaning crew, or the next guests staying after you. Jan has been extremely pleasant to work with and was very accommodating. When we arrived and there was only 3 armbands she was very quick to help and had a plan in place to get us what we needed. We will definitely come back year after year as this again was one of the best locations and layouts of any condo we've stayed at and we have been coming to PCB for over 20 years! All the great reviews should definitely reflect that. 😉
