**********

100% CLEAN BEACH GUARANTEE! If our pristine beaches are closed for any reason, your rent will be refunded - prorated if closed during your stay at Calypso and you wish to check out. Hopefully, you will be having such a great time at your two amazing free form pools of Calypso, and the outstanding entertainment, restaurants, and shopping across the street at Pier Park - YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE! :)

Choosing Calypso First Floor across from Pier Park will be the smartest move you will make for your carefree beach vacation.

Calypso is the ONLY condo where you can truly WALK to Pier Park, and being on the ground floor is an added bonus. Fly into the NEW Panama City Beach airport (ECP) and you won't even need a car! $20 will get you from the airport to Calypso!

Relax and enjoy FIRST FLOOR convenience with an expansive ocean view! Just steps from the pool! You will love the oversized balcony which overlooks the ocean and one of two wonderful 172' free-form pools (one heated to 80+ degrees!). You have complete balcony access and ocean views from both the living room and master suite! You don't even have to get out of bed to see and enjoy the ocean! Let the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep!
You will not find a better view from your condo or balcony than Calypso first floor! Fabulous view of the pool and ocean.
Just look at our photos!
No worries about privacy, Calypso 'ropes off' the pool areas afer 10PM. You CANNOT see in the unit during the daytime (We've tried!). All you will see is the reflection of the palm trees and ocean shining back at you:) When closed, our custom draperies are very room darkening. The only problem is you may sleep too late to get up with the sun. The dolphins are most active in the morning!

FIRST FLOOR FLIP FLOPS is newly redecorated to give you a beach cottage feel and absolute luxury! We can accomodate nine, with king-size bed in the master suite, queen-size bed in the front bedroom on the left, bunk beds (FULL bed on lower bunk, twin on top) in the front bedroom on the right, and a new queen sleeper sofa with a new upgraded gel mattress.

Because your comfort is important to us, our fully equipped kitchen (granite countertops, of course) is stocked with all luxuries of home. Prepare your favorite dish, or blend yourself a Margarita at the wet-bar before heading off to Margaritaville, a few FLIP FLOPS away!

Mom says she is on vacation and doesn't plan to cook much? No problem! There are many great restaurants in walking distance and a great carryout called Fatty's, is just across the street. We have menus in the condo, and often run across the street for carryouts to enjoy on the patio at sunset! Can't miss sunset!!!

Our unit offers a separate laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. Being able to close the laundry room door means no laundry noise to interrupt your quiet time in the evenings :)

We have also installed extra storage cabinets - in the laundry room and above the wet bar - for your use.

CALYPSO WEST 104 CONVENIENCE - You will appreciate the easy access to our FIRST FLOOR CONDO for loading and unloading. There is 15 minute parking right outside your door! We are just a few short 'flip-flops' from the pool and the beach. No steps! Leave your frustrations behind! ZERO time waiting on elevators = MAXIMIZED BEACH TIME!!!

Fall in love with the fabulous Pier Park, a 240 acre high-energy entertainment, dining and retail Hot-Spot for the entire family.
THERE IS NO OTHER CONDO WITHIN CLOSER WALKING DISTANCE TO PIER PARK THAN CALYPSO FIRST FLOOR WEST 104. PERIOD.

Just opened in 2015 - North Pier Park features Dick's Sporting Goods, Bed Bath and Beyond, Pier One Imports, Kirkland's, Shoe Carnival, Ross and the list is still growing. Let's just put it this way...If you want it, you will find it in Pier Park.

If you are searching for top-of-the line accommodations and the perfect Panama City beachfront location,
THIS IS THE PLACE!
CALYPSO RESORT TOWERS FIRST FLOOR
'GETTING HERE IS EASY, LEAVING IS HARD!'

If you are a Calypso repeat guest, you will understand the convenience!
New in 2015! We purchased a VIP reserved garage parking space for our Flip Flop guests. With the popularity of Calypso, finding a parking spot is getting increasingly difficult! Crossing the road from the parking garage (across the street from the beach, and Calypso Resort Towers) is something you will no longer have to worry about! No more driving around to find the closest space. No more forgetting where you parked you car! You simply use the assigned code for admittance into the undercondo parking garage on the beach side - right under Calypso Resort Towers, and your VIP spot will be waiting for you! Our spot is right by the middle elevator / stairs, and the luggage carts, which you won't need if you take advantage of the 15 minute parking right out front our your first floor condo!
HOORAY for YOU!
OUR COST OF RESERVED PARKING SPOT - $25,000 (plus monthly fee:) and worth it!
YOUR COST OF PARKING SPACE - FREE!
VALUE OF RESERVED PARKING SPOT - PRICELESS!

FREE BEACH LOUNGECHAIR /UMBRELLA SETUPS (Mar - Nov) is a luxury you can't live without! Let us spoil you!

There are many wonderful parks and off-the-beaten-path gems to explore in this area.

The folks at the visitor center on Route 79 are very helpful and friendly!

PIER PARK:

Pier Park atPanama City Beach is a 900,000+ square foot Florida shopping center and entertainment hub located in the heart of this beachside city. Serving as the premiere Northwest Florida shopping destination, this mecca offers dining, specialty shops, attractions, events and more. Come get your feet wet with Panama City Beach shopping!

GOLF-

With 5 championship golf courses (including the only Nicklaus Design course in Northwest Florida), 320 days of sunshine a year, and an average temperature of 74 degrees, it's no wonder that Golf Digest magazine named Panama City Beach one of America's top three golf towns. There's plenty of variety, too! In fact, with 162-holes to play, you'd be hard pressed to squeeze all the great golf Panama City Beach offers into one vacation. Thanks to affordable greens fees and tee times available year-round, visitors to Panama City Beach quickly figure out why golfers who want to shave a few strokes off their game are flocking to enjoy Panama City Beach's golf courses:

Bay Point Resort Golf Club 850-235-6950

Holiday Golf Club 850-234-1800

Hombre Golf Club 850-234-3673

Signal Hill Golf Course 850-234-3218

WATER ACTIVITIES:

If you love water sports (and if not, you're about to!), the big question here isn't what to do, it's how to fit it all in. At Panama City Beach, water sports aren't just something to do, they're a way of life. Best of all, we've got all the equipment, guides and lessons you need right here.

CRUISING, BOATING, FISHING:

The Gulf of Mexico is beautiful from the white-sand shores of Panama City Beach, but you get a totally different perspective out on the water, whether you're fishing, zipping across the Gulf on a banana boat or just kicking back on one of our famous sunset cruises. Dolphin cruises are another great way to see Panama City Beach by water and observe dolphins in their natural habitat.

DIVING & SNORKELING:

What does every diver want? Great weather, great water and an underwater landscape teeming with life. Done, done and done! Experienced divers love our reefs and wrecks, and for newcomers, snorkeling is the perfect introduction to Panama City Beach water sports!

SKIMBOARDING:

Skimboarders run towards the ocean, drop into the thin wash of retreating waves, then skim out to sea and ride the breaking waves back to shore. Our sugar-white sands and flat waters make Panama City Beach a must-skim destination.

JET SKI:

Take a dolphin tour - go solo, or aboard a 2 OR 3 seater.

SUP - Stand Up PADDLEBOARDING:

One of the hottest newcomers to Panama City Beach water sports, paddle boarding uses big boards, letting riders stand and gently paddle their way across the water.

SURFING:

Part of what makes Panama City Beach water sports unique is that there are opportunities for everyone - experts and newbies alike - and surfing is one area where we're perfect for beginners. With our white-sand beaches, mild climate and mid-sized Gulf waves, entry-level never felt so good!

PARASAILING:

Fast boats lift parachutes high in the air, and you with them. Go solo, or try our big chutes to share the experience with family and friends. Of all the beach sports you might try, this one that gives you a bird's-eye view you'll never forget!

ECO NATURE:

ST ANDREWS STATE PARK -

St. Andrews State Park was named the #2 beach in the nation, but whether you're interested in sunbathing on the beach, snorkeling along the jetties, canoeing, kayaking or hiking through the forest, there's something for everyone here! Fishing from the pier or the jetties is popular, and a boat ramp provides access to St. Andrew Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Nature trails wind through a rich diversity of coastal plant communities providing an excellent opportunity for bird-watching - You might even spot a deer! Take a boat tour to pristine Shell Island. The 700-acre island is home to deer, turtles, pelicans, sandpipers, gulls and piping and snowy plovers, and in the surrounding waters you'll spot colorful fish, dolphins, sea turtles and other aquatic life. Shuttles are available to take visitors back and forth from St. Andrews State Park, and pontoon boat rentals are another popular way to get to Shell Island.

GAYLE'S TRAILS:

Part of a growing greenways and trails system that will span the entire island of Panama City Beach. Gayle's Trails connects Frank Brown Park to the 3,000-acre Panama City Beach Conservation Park, where you'll find long boardwalks crossing cypress swamps, off-road trails perfect for walking or biking.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Since 1980 I have looked forward to our annual family vacation in Panama City Beach. We always stayed at St. Andrews Park in a pop-up camper and had a blast. When we grew up, Mom and Dad finally bought a condo. To make a sad story short, my Dad died suddenly in 2002 and Mom sold the condo. I convinced Mom to buy another one - with my husband and ME! As soon as I learned about Calypso, I knew it was the perfect spot for our family. Our arrangement has worked out great. I handle the bookkeeping and Mom takes good care of our guests! THIS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR! We hope you will enjoy our FLIP FLOPS FAMILY FUNSPOT as much as we do. Sunshine, Kerry

Why the Owner Chose Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
CALYPSO IS THE BEST LOCATION ON THE BEACH! We have the ocean at our back door, and Pier Park out our front door! We are really excited that we were able to reserve dual beach lounge setups with huge umbrellas that the beach service will set up each day for you - close to the water's edge! This is a $230 value at no extra cost to you! (Available from March until November) NEW FOR YOU: We recently purchased a reserved parking spot in the beachside garage right under the condo (no crossing the street or searching for a place to park) for your convenience because it was the only luxury that we did not have to offer our guests, and this was making me crazy! NOW NO ONE BEATS FLIP FLOPS:)

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We provide a guest book with menus of all the local restaurants, and brochures of the many things to see and do during your vacation at Calypso. Like movies? We provide a huge DVD library for your enjoyment. There are plenty of books and board games too. You will feel right at home here! Calypso Resort also offers On-Site Beach Activities & Rentals such as Stand up Paddleboarding, Kayaking, Parasailing, Wave Runners and Banana Boat Rides!
