FIVE STAR RATED BY OUR GUESTS! Please read our reviews!

An Upscale, West Indies decor vacation paradise: 'TOES IN THE~~WATER~~.' This sunny and light filled corner unit features three spacious bedrooms with three private baths, no tiny bunk rooms. The expansive windows face both the Gulf of Mexico and a western exposure to showcase gorgeous sunsets and miles and miles of beach front views.

Located on the outside corner of the Western Tower on the sixteenth floor. We love this unit because of the fabulous panoramic unobstructed beach and ocean views with magnificent sunsets! - directly on the Gulf, miles of beaches, sunsets, the new pier, Pier Park and even the Frank Brown ball fields. There is no pool, or street noise.... Very quiet! Best of all -- you don't have to deal with those pesky flying insects!

Quality appointments throughout including granite countertops in the kitchen, wet bar, and all bathrooms. There's a separate laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer. Recent upgrades for this season include new paint throughout, Stainless Steel Appliances in the kitchen, new area rugs, NEW ELECTRONICS: 43" Samsung LED Smart TV' with HDMI in Living Room, 43" 1080P Visio w/ HDMI in Master, 32" Vizio Smart TV with HDMI in front bedroom and FREE WI-FI in all rooms. We have also recently added new balcony furniture which features six heavy-duty, Polywood balcony height chairs, and tables - this allows you to see over the balcony railing for even more spectacular views. Check out our photos!

The dining area comfortably seats five with five bar stools at the breakfast bar.

The Master bedroom suite features a king size bed, sliding doorway to the balcony, television, large bathroom with walk-in closet, oversized soaking tub, separate shower, and private watercloset.

Bedroom #2 (almost a second master) features a King bed, wonderful Western exposure/ocean views, television, and connecting private bath with walk-in shower.

Bedroom #3 includes a full-sized bed and single bed, television, and another connecting, full private bath with tub/shower.

There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room.

This Caribbean influenced resort is in the family friendly west end of Panama City Beach. Enjoy a tropical beverage from the resort's Tiki bar surrounded by the two Gulf front, lagoon style pools with tropical landscaping.

Calypso Towers is THE CLOSEST PROPERTY to PIER PARK! Park your car - NO NEED TO DRIVE ANYWHERE with Pier Park across the street - the ultimate dining, shopping, entertainment complex including Margaritaville, The Back Porch, Pompano Joes, Dicks Last Resort, Ron Jon Surf Shop, Buffalo Wild Wings (for all the games!), Five Guys, Red Bricks Pizza, Starbucks, Hoffbrau Beer Gardens, Dave and Busters, a 16 screen theater complex, Target (with new 'Fresh Market' grocery store), Dillards, Ann Taylor Loft, Chicos, American Eagle, Aeropostale, Old Navy, Forever 21, Fusion Day Spa, Massage Envy, nail salon, cute boutiques and much, much more!

We are located next to unspoiled beaches, and beyond that is the Russell Fields City Pier - over 1500 Feet! The longest pier on the Gulf of Mexico - offering breathtaking views and inexpensive fishing tackle rentals. For a great lunch 'to go' to the beach, check out Fatty's Sub Shop across the street - excellent breakfast, or lunch (wraps, pizza, sandwiches)! Give them your beach chair number and they'll even deliver it to your beach chair!

We also provide FREE BEACH SERVICE FOR FOUR GUESTS. That's 2 SETS of cushioned lounge chairs, with connecting table, and umbrella - a $560 value! (Avail. 3/15 - 10/31) Reserve your chairs once at the beginning of your vacation, from the nice staff at Aquatic Adventures, located just at the bottom of the steps to the beach. You will have the same chairs at the same place every day! (No need to stand in line every day, like at some resorts - it's your vacation, relax!

We also provide a couple of beach chairs in the unit for your use during your stay. And while this is not full 'Beach Service' it does allow you to sit closer to the water, have more 'elbow room' / privacy and just relax at your own time table. Sit back and enjoy those fabulous sunsets! We also have stocked the condo with beach towels, boogie board and sand toys. Note: Beach Service lounge cushions and umbrellas are picked up between 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.

Rent directly from the owner and avoid long lines to check in after a long travel day. Park your car, go directly to your units and RELAX! There is also a beach concierge service if you should need any local assistance, or would like to have all your groceries pre-stocked, unpacked and in your pantry and refrigerator when you arrive. We encourage our renters to contact us with any questions or needs to ensure a wonderful, relaxing, stress-free vacation experience. We want this to be one of your best vacations - EVER!

About Rachel Brannon

We live just south of Nashville, in Brentwood, TN. We have vacationed in the Florida Panhandle for over 30 years. Prior to buying this condominium we vacationed in Destin for years! We love the area, but the crowds, traffic and long waits at the Restaurants were ruining our 'fun.' We tried the Seaside/Watercolor area for a few years and also loved those places, but had to stay across the street from the beach and couldn't even SEE the beach unless we drove or biked to the 'beach clubs.'

Rachel Brannon purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rachel Brannon chose Panama City Beach

When the new airport opened in Panama City Beach, we decided to look into this area. We fell in love with the beautiful beaches and the EASY vacation lifestyle. Once we stayed at Calypso and took the easy stroll, across the street to Pier Park - with all the restaurants, shopping, theaters, live music venues, we were SOLD! This is the easiest, most stress-free vacation spot - ever!

What makes this condo unique

We especially like being in a corner unit of the WEST Tower of Calypso. We have THE MOST beautiful views of the Gulf out the back and sides of our unit. There are no high rises next to us - just wide open beaches. You have to see it to believe it. We take pride in keeping our unit up to date, renovated and in top condition. We do not rent to Spring Breakers and have a great relationship with our rental families. Come stay with us at 'Toes in the Water!' You and your family will have one of the best vacations of your life!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our nice guests left these comments in our vacation journal in the unit-

"We really enjoyed our time here. The condo was beautiful. Loved the 4th of July fireworks w/o having to leave the room. Our parents really enjoyed themselves. Thank you Brannons for sharing your place with us. We will be in touch in the future to stay here again. Thanks again!"

The process and working with the owners were amazing. They were very detailed with their communications and responded immediately with any questions that I had which was extremely helpful. The condo was in great condition, and the views and location were absolutely perfect for our family.

Absolutely Beautiful Home away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our time at Panama City Beach more! The location of this unit provides the most amazing views of the gulf and even on days we were simply worn out from water and sun we enjoyed incredible sunsets from anywhere we were in the unit, whether on the deck, cooking dinner in the kitchen, or lounging in the living room. We were simply "engulfed" with beautiful views!

Kim & Todd's "Toes in the Water" fits every need from everything you need to cook a great meal to everything you need to enjoy the beach. The reserved beach chair service is just one of the many extras we enjoyed immensely. The condo's layout provided more than enough space for everyone and even the washer and dryer were larger units compared to past stays on the gulf allowing us to be much more efficient with preparing for our trip home.

Restaurants and shopping is plentiful and most convenient as Pier Park is literally across the street. Target and Walmart are also very close by for those little things you may have forgotten to pack. We enjoyed both local fare as well as the classic margarita from Margaritaville during our stay without having to even get in the car. We were able to video my son swimming across the sandbar with schools of stingray from the deck and take several beautiful photos of our family as we celebrated graduation milestones.

Put simply, we are not sure you can find a better accommodation and we recommend "Toes in the Water" for anyone visiting Panama City Beach and all the beautiful Gulf of Mexico has to offer!

Thank you for an amazing stay and many wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to review Toes in the ~Water~ for future guests. It's hard to describe just how amazing the views are from every angle! It's also so wonderful to be able to walk to such a wide variety of shopping and dining choices without getting in your car - it makes for a very relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Our guests are always pleased with the amazing panoramic views from both the back and the side windows of this corner unit. Corner units just really provide a much sunnier, open feeling than the interior condos. Hope to see you again next year! Kim
