Charming, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay and would highly recommend it. My only negative feedback would be there’s no dressing mirror or lighting to get ready but every other little detail was spot on.

Perfect location--close to beach and town!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect! One block from beach and about a block from all the restaurants and stores in Rosemary. It was nice having bikes provided and the shops at Seacrest were just a couple minutes away on the bike. The cottage was clean with nice amenities. We would rent it again!

  • 3 of 5

Housekeeping was poor. Dirty silverware in the drawers. Sheets and pillowcases on bed were wrong size. Cable tv was out about half our stay. Sad for such a nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your repeated stays with us at this property. I was unaware of your concerns during your stay. We did answer your request for a couple of items you requested but were not made aware of the issues you mentioned. Cleanliness issues could absolutely been addressed. I hope you will choose the stay with us again and allow us the opportunity to rate a better review. Upon reaching out to this guest after this review was posted, the guest responded as follows "As we have enjoyed our stays at Calypso for several years I assure you that these concerns have not dampened our enthusiasm. We will return and I plan to sign up in the next several weeks as soon as we have a handle on the exact dates. We do plan on another two weeks. The facility is perfect for us and close to the beach and restaurants. What could be better. Again, thanks for the response and we look forward to our next visit."

Perfect Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Calypso for a weekend getaway and couldn't have been more pleased. We stay in Rosemary every summer and I have seen several carriage houses, but none of them hold a candle to the Calypso. You can tell that the owners wanted to create something that was unique and very comfortable and they did a great job. The location of the house is also a huge plus as it is merely steps away from the beach as well as Main street. If you use the bathroom a lot at night, and don't like spiral stairs, you may want to consider another option. I knew about this prior to our stay and it was not a problem at all for my wife and I. We will definitely stay here again and look forward to our return.
