Upscale furnishings will spoil and pamper you as you enjoy your much deserved vacation. Your own private beach on the turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico is the perfect escape for family fun and relaxation.

As you listen to the soothing serenade of waves on our soft white sands, you will be surrounded by exquisite loveliness and wonder. Relax, walk and play on a beautiful beach where many types of birds live and dolphins frequently swim. Turtle nests usually line our beach from May – October and provide an opportunity to witness hatchings.

In addition to direct gulf front views to the south, we also have splendid views of Little Lagoon to the north. Most of our guests refer to 'Calypso' as their beach home, because they stay here every year.

The home is situated 4.2 miles from the center of town but away from High Rises. West Beach is an area of enchanting beauty with bike and walking paths along our quiet two lane road. Calypso Cabana is loacated at 2181 West Beach Boulevard in Gulf Shores.

About Nancy Leonard

Hello and Welcome! I am Nancy Leonard, co-owner of Calypso Cabana. Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, I was a very frequent visitor to the beaches in Gulf Shores. I attended Christ the King Parochial School in Daphne and graduated from McGill-Toolen High School in Mobile in 1979. University of South Alabama is where I received a degree in Accounting and Finance.

It is an honor to continually update and maintain this home of comfort, beauty and happy times. My hope is to provide a home for each guest to experience a fun and memorable vacation!

I currently live on Pleasure Island in Orange Beach. Kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and walking along the Gulf beaches is my way of life! I feel honored and privileged to share the island style of life with my guests!

Nancy Leonard purchased this house in 1993

Why Nancy Leonard chose Gulf Shores

Looking for a private beach, away from the crowds and high rises, I purchased this lot in the exclusive Callaway Subdivision in 1993. Being only 4 miles from town, I was excited to have a private retreat on West Beach! Garcia Construction custom built Calypso Cabana in 1997. The floor plan was custom designed by me to include large open rooms. With the help of friends, I continue to upgrade the custom decor of the home.

What makes this house unique

The Aquamarine and Turquoise Blue Waters of the Gulf!

I live locally and am available to my guests at all times. Calypso is being constantly updated. I personally oversee the cleaning and maintenance. This is a very clean and well maintained home!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5
House was as pictured and advertised. Loved the extra ice maker for a family of 9. Kitchen had newer appliances. House could use some repairs on the sliding glass doors, but loved everything else about it and the beach. Plenty to do in surrounding area for kids and adults (LuLu's was fun for both) but house located in a quiet area. Would recommend this place to anyone needing room for a larger number of people wanting time away and a beach to watch and play at!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Took our family first vacation to Alabama. This property was perfect for our family of 8. We were able to cook breakfasts and lunches in and eat dinner out. The beach was great and quiet. Even though you are further away from the action center if town, it is only a short drive to everything. I would definately stay at this house again.

Perfect vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year renting this house for our family vacation. We had 5 families, with 5 sets of adults and 7 children between the ages of 5 and 12. The location was perfect, and there was always beautiful weather for enjoying the beach! The privacy of the beaches allowed for us to leave our gear out for the day without worrying too much about it. Free dolphin viewing every morning, kids got to see 3 different kinds of rays, lots of fish, and there was even a small shipwreck the guys swam to an snorkeled around within easy swimming distance from our beach! As the week progressed and the waters changed, body surfing and boogie boarding were added to the fun. Nighttime crabbing was always something the kids looked forward to, as well.

The house is clean, bright, and very welcoming. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. The pictures, though accurate, do NOT do this house justice! You have to see it to truly enjoy it! Since last year, there have been new appliances placed, and we really appreciated that! All the cooking utensils we needed were there, and more than enough dishes and silverware for all of us. Bathrooms were clean and comfortable, and there were plenty of towels and bedding for all. Every family had a bedroom, and bedrooms were well-furnished, TV's great, good cable selection, if you have time to use them! Plenty of things to do outside...

Very reasonable distance to grocery; the ladies in our family enjoyed the outlet mall!!! All in all, we would highly recommend this house to friends, and I already have!
