Overview

About the property

9th Floor Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

We welcome you to come enjoy a true 'home away from home' experience in our cozy beachfront 9th floor condo at Calypso Resort - perfect for a romantic getaway or family vacation. The master bedroom offers a high quality king bed, with 2 twin bunk beds in the hallway and a queen sofa bed with brand new mattress.

Our #1 priority is customer service..hands down!! Our goal is to provide you with the best experience, not only during your stay, but throughout the entire process (search, reservation, check-in/out, etc.). We are very prompt with our responses, provide a seamless booking process, and remain very hands-on throughout your entire experience.

As for the condo itself - the photos speak for themselves. The beach is our backyard! The serene view of the emerald water, sugar white sand and warm sunset from our balcony will certainly make you fall in love. The ideal 9th floor is high enough to enjoy the privacy and panoramic view of the beautiful white sand and clear emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but low enough to see the activities in the pool and beach below. Quick and easy access to the beach makes it convenient for everyone to enjoy some sunbathing/swimming at any time. Need a break from the beach? There are two large (and heated) outdoor pools with beach views and tropical landscaping, and a tiki bar to satisfy your thirst with some frozen drinks.

Our guests enjoy the warm and charming decor, with Tommy Bahama furnishings throughout. The upgraded tiles keep our home clean, and our fully equipped kitchen (with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances) enables you to prepare a home cooked meal if desired. You'll also have access to a secured parking garage directly across the street, with a covered and air conditioned walkway to the condo.

Our home is the closest resort (walk across the street!)to Pier Park - Panama City Beach's premiere entertainment center. You'll never need your car with all that Pier Park has to offer - 1 million square feet of restaurants & bars, Imax movie theatre, shopping (boutique and department stores), Target, live music and rides for the kids.

About Khang Nguyen and Huy Nguyen

We are best friends who met and grew up in Austin, TX -- we currently live in different areas (Houston and Washington, DC). We purchased this vacation home after visiting Panama City Beach only once - as we immediately fell in love with its extremely soft white sand, beautiful emerald water and the wonderful selections of fresh seafood. This is a perfect place for our families to get together, catch up and relax. We would love to share that experience with you - we invite your family to come enjoy our home and all that it has to offer.

Cheers,

Huey & Khang

Excellent resort

  • 4 of 5

My overall impression of this condo is Amazing. Great location. Right across the street from Pier Park. Walking distance to Barefoot grill and Runaway Island both amazing restaurants. A 100 yds from the pier is you like to fish. The resort had everything you could want. The condo was great. Not to high you could use the stairs if needed. The elevators can require a few minutes wait though. My only complaint was the bed. We love our plush mattress at home. The one here is very firm. Overall, we will be coming back very soon. The owner is very quick to respond. Loved our stay!!

Great location, Not so great accommodations.

  • 2 of 5

So, I don't usually leave reviews. But in this case I feel it is necessary.

Pros- The location of the Calypso was perfect. The easy access to Pier Park and the beach was great.

Cons- I was excited based on the previous reviews of this condo. However, when we received the three page list of rules and regulations I was somewhat disappointed. I understand the need for these regulations to keep unwanted tenants out, but it was a little much in my opinion. Once we arrived, we were disappointed by dirty floors, sand still on the tile from the prior tenants, and the overall general upkeep of the condo was sub-standard. The bed was less than comfortable to say the least, the bed linens seem to be old and in need of replacement. I did not sleep well during the entire week, to be honest the overall conditions just felt dirty. The security on the grounds seemed to be looking and waiting for you to park somewhere so they could threaten to tow, or just tow your vehicle. The last night we were there, we were woken up to an intoxicated man repeatedly attempting to enter our condo by entering in the wrong access code at 3 AM. I had to advise him that he had the wrong room, and he continued to try to enter numerous rooms on the ninth floor, east tower. Needless to say, we will not be going back to the Calypso. This review is just to advise the issues our family had during our stay.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival the floor was so sticky we couldn't walk without our shoes. The sheets needed to be replaced. They were dingy. One towel was dingy and couldn't be used.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and clean. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfy. We love the location, it is walking distance to Pier Park and the pier. It was so nice to wake up and look out on the balcony to see the sunrise and the pier. We would diffently rent here again. The owner was very nice and responded to us very quickly. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us stay here at such a great deal!

Great Condo, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for January 2016. The location is excellent. Close to everything in PCB. Just a walk over to Pier Park which is an amazing place. The view of the Gulf, the endless beach and the sunsets are awesome. The unit was clean, comfortable and conveniently located. It has everything you need but if something is missing the housekeeper is just a phone call away. The owners are also easy to get in touch with and are very gracious (we arrived a day early to avoid a snowstorm and they promptly arranged to let us in). A great place for a short holiday or longer vacation.

Great Condo with AWESOME views!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the Calypso Condo between Christmas and New Year. The condo was very clean and orderly. Covered parking was included with a skywalk connecting to the condo building. It was beautiful with 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen, laundry, and great balcony overlooking the Gulf. If you plan to cook, I suggest you pack ahead the kitchen essentials for cooking and bring some extra laundry soap. Walmart and Target are just 1-2 miles away to make grocery shopping easy. I had one question for the owner while there and he was very responsive within minutes! Just don't forget your beach towels and beach toys!
