"We had a wonderful week at PCB this week and this condo was a huge reason why! First, the Calypso Resort is, in my opinion, one of the best and most convenient locations in PCB! You are within walking distance to Pier Park and centrally located to everything. As for this particular unit, it is definitely unique in that the layout is very open and spacious! We love the ground floor and have stayed in another ground floor unit at the Calypso Resort in the past, but the location and layout of this one can't be beat. It is clearly located right off the pool next to the tiki bar, but we never had any problem with noise! The unit is very well insulated and they have very sturdy curtains if you want to sleep in and keep the light out! With the balcony being right off the pool it is convienent for handing over any rafts, beach bags, etc, but if you forget something it's not a big deal to just run and get it! The balcony is also way oversized so there is plenty of room without being crowded. It's great for for small children to have room to play without worrying about them falling over (if you worry like me 😜). The beach is also a short distance and you are close to the main walkway so you don't have to walk down long hallways. Unloading was also amazing. You are the first condo right around the corner from the unloading station. We had a ton of luggage and made several trips to the grocery store and never needed a cart. We were also never rushed. There is no need to use an elevator for this unit so even at the busiest times of the year that would never be an issue! It was very well equipped with all cooking supplies and dishes! Very clean. After seeing a previous review I just want to say that it IS clearly stated in the contract that bands are $25 if lost or stolen and not left in the condo upon departure. It was also posted in several places all over the unit. This is not uncommon and has been a rule for any condo I've ever rented as it does cause an inconvenience to the owner, the cleaning crew, or the next guests staying after you. Jan has been extremely pleasant to work with and was very accommodating. When we arrived and there was only 3 armbands she was very quick to help and had a plan in place to get us what we needed. We will definitely come back year after year as this again was one of the best locations and layouts of any condo we've stayed at and we have been coming to PCB for over 20 years! All the great reviews should definitely reflect that. 😉"
