A wonderful, clean house in a very nice location

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay! The house was very clean, decorated nicely, and felt like home. Everything was in working order, and it didn't feel like a high-traffic beach rental like other places we've stayed in the past.

The house is a short walk from the beach and in a fantastic location to use as a launching point for exploring Cape San Blas and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.

I feel like we lucked out finding this house, and we look forward to coming back!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Calico! The condo had everything we needed and was very cozy. The screened in porch was an amazing spot to sit and drink morning coffee while watching turtles in the pond . Will stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Good spot

  • 3 of 5

Nice place. Good beds. Clean. Decent kitchen supplies but if you plan on washing or cleaning you will need to bring your own supplies.
