Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and discover this inviting and well appointed penthouse level condominium. It's a perfect place for couples or families looking for all of the conveniences of home, with the amenities of a hotel.

By renting with us, you will find yourself immersed in the heart of Panama City Beach. Centrally located, we are just steps away from the Pier Park outdoor lifestyle center. The Calypso is also the closest beach complex to Frank Brown Park and the summer amphitheatre.

The views from the condo balcony of the beach and Gulf of Mexico are breathtaking! You'll enjoy the privacy and the 10 foot ceiling height only found on the top floor condominiums. With the doors wide open, all you hear are the peaceful sounds of the ocean waves lapping on the beach below. It's the perfect retreat for a fabulous getaway!

We know you’ll be pleased with the sleeping arrangements for up to six people. You’ll find a private master bedroom with a comfortable king sized bed for the adults, and a spacious built in bunk bed area with new mattresses for the younger set. It’s always possible to pull out the queen sized sofa bed and spend a comfortable night dozing away when the light blocking draperies are pulled closed.

Your favorite quality appointments are found throughout the condominium. It is professionally furnished with decorator quality furniture, an upscale kitchen, and a lovely balcony that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll find extras including luxury linens, designer faucets, granite countertops, six panel doors, and stainless steel appliances. We always continue to update our condominium to ensure the best standards are maintained.

When you're ready to leave the condo and venture downstairs, you'll find an exercise and vending area. On the pool deck you will see a new tiki bar with refreshments available, and two very large 175' free form pools. One of them is seasonally heated.

Out on the beach, you'll enjoy the convenient on site beach service where you can rent jet skis, parasail, take banana boat rides, and more. Included in your rental rate are two beach chairs and umbrella set up daily by the beach service company. This is a $25 to $30 savings per day. Wow!

When you're finished enjoying the fabulous beach and pools, you can head out to all of the great local restaurants, shopping and entertainment nearby in Pier Park. You don’t even need a car!

If you prefer to stay in, relax in the condo and take in a DVD movie. Maybe you'd like to browse the internet on your laptop with our free high speed internet connection.

We’re always here to make your stay the best stay. We have local cleaning and maintenance employed in case you encounter any issues during your stay.

About Jennifer

We have always loved the beach. On a vacation, we found the Florida panhandle to have some of the most beautiful beaches and waters we've ever seen. We truly enjoy all the area has to offer and work to keep our condominium maintained and comfortable for all of our future guests. We hope you have a great stay overlooking the most beautiful beaches too!

Scott and Jennifer

Jennifer purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jennifer chose Florida Panhandle

The decision to buy at the Calypso was an easy one. With all of the fabulous growth and upgrades going on in Panama City Beach, the Calypso still stood out. It has the best location on the beach right now. The Calypso has an easy going, yet elegant, feel to it. That is just how we like to vacation. We're sure you'll like it too!

What makes this condo unique

Our Calypso condominium has something for everyone. It is a penthouse condominium unit on the top floor. You truly have to experience the privacy and views that you have from there. It is just amazing! The top floor condominiums all have taller ceilings that the lower floors, and you never have neighbors above you. Many of our guests have commented that they will never stay on a lower floor again. The views are that spectacular!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jen & ScottMy time here in PCB has finally come to an end. I was here for work attending the long and grueling challenge of Navy Dive School. Coming back to a beautiful home every day certainly helped me make it through!! Thanks so much for the use of your place for nearly ½ a year!

WOW

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! It was perfect.I have been visiting Panama City Beach for the last 20 years and I was a little concerned with being on the 23rd floor but now that I have stayed there I wouldn't visit Panama any other way. It is so peaceful at night on the patio. See you guys next summer!

Best location in PCB!! Amazing Views, Beautifully Decorated and Very Clean!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything!! Perfect location right next to the city pier and Pier Park with restaurants and souvenir shops just across the street. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony was breath-taking. You can see all the large fish and rays from the balcony. We spotted dolphins here every morning on our trip. My family and I probably spent more time on the balcony than we did on the actual beach :) The condo was equipped with everything you would need...plenty of cups, bowls, plates, silverware, pots, pans, towels, blankets...they had it all covered! Even sand toys and a net in the hall closet. There is also a Wii system with tons of games and DVDs for the kids. The king size bed was super comfy as well. Jennifer was very easy to work with, we didn't run into any issues while staying here. We will definitely be staying again!

PS...I was a little nervous about the elevator wait time being on the 23rd floor but we only waited a minute in a half at the most. There are 3 elevators. Also if you are looking for a nice photo op take the elevator to the 4th floor and walk down the hallway to the center of the building, there is a nice balcony overlooking the ocean which made a great background for a family photo.

Way too crowded!

  • 2 of 5

The property is pretty architecturally. Our unit was a typical Sterling property. We have stayed at many. The lack of grills was a major disappointment. The balconies were narrow. We got bumped from our chair assignment despite standing in line to reserve it. We saw a lot of that. Guessing it is a bit of a scam. The unit was ready ahead of time but not completely clean. I had to sweep it myself and the refrigerator top had not been wiped in a long time. Overall we had a nice trip but neither of us ever wants to return to Calypso. The third tower will be a nightmare for parking and for a sliver of beach. We had to set our chairs up at 6:00 AM every day to be on the water. Pretty stressful and competitive for vacation. Just not for us.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that this guest did not enjoy the Calypso and all it has to offer. This review is targeted mainly toward the Calypso Resort, and the stay was during the busy 4th of July week. I am sorry to say the the guests never communicated any concerns about their stay until posting this review online, and also did not respond when I contacted them after reading the review. As a private owner who is not a part of the Sterling Resort rental program (as mentioned in the review), I pride myself on having wonderful customer service and always give ample directions on how to reach me with any concerns during a stay. These guests apparently checked in early without notifying me and many times the housekeepers leave a unit and work on another and come back at a later date to finish up the cleaning. I am always happy to work with all of my guests to make their stay the best possible, as the many great reviews can attest to over the last decade. I hope to hear from many more new guests soon!

Beautiful condo with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this condo. We love the outstanding views from the 23rd floor. Not only does it have beautiful views, but the condo is decorated beautifully, the bed in the master is so comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need, there also board games, over 50 movies, a gaming system and games, and plenty of books. Also love that it comes with a beach set up so no worry about renting chairs and umbrella for the week.

Also the location is the absolute best in PCB, with pier park across the street, the fishing pier just down from the condo, and plenty of places to eat within walking distance. I highly recommend Shuck'ums, if you don't mind driving Schooners is always a good place to eat too.

If you get up early and go out on the balcony you will most likely see dolphins playing and the occasional school of stingrays passing through.

Jennifer and Scott are great to work with and always enjoy staying in their condo. Thanks for everything!
