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.

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!

About KERRY SCHRAND
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
KERRY SCHRAND purchased this Condo in 2006
Why KERRY SCHRAND chose Panama City Beach
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:)
What makes this Condo unique
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!

Very nice condo! Loved the convenience of the 1st floor and parking pass, especially with 3 kids! Will definitely look into booking again!
This condo was perfect for our family! Ground level was great because it was a short walk to the beach and no waiting on elevators! The condo was equipped with a playpen and high chair for our baby. There were also several beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys and pool toys already there for us to use! Loved this condo and will stay here again if we go back next summer! Just a short walk to pier park and gulf world!
Clean ,it was everything the owner said it was we will rent this unit again.
Loved the 1st Floor!
Working with Kerry was very easy, she was very accommodating when we asked to drop our luggage early, and we will definitely rent from her again. We weren't sure if we would like the first floor but we LOVED it.
I am so glad you loved the first floor!! We have found that not having to wait on elevators truly maximizes PRECIOUS VACATION TIME! I look forward to working with you again:)
Very nice condo. It was clean and updated. Kerry was great to work with. This condo is close to everything! It was our third time staying there and it remains consistently good.
Love this place. Kerry was great to deal with. To contact her was easy and she made sure everything was great for your stay. The condo was awesome. Very spacious. We will be staying here again.

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.

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.
